Thanks to the hyper-awareness about infectious diseases, cleaning and sanitation are high priorities for most people, and that would include your clientele.
Having a comprehensive commercial cleaning solution for your business, whether it is an office, restaurant, gym, or another type of facility, is essential. Knowing what questions to ask a commercial cleaning company can help you narrow down what services your business needs the most.
Benefits of Commercial Cleaning Services
There are janitorial services and commercial cleaning services. A janitorial service may come every day, usually after most employees have left for the day. This type of service focuses on surface-level cleanings, such as dusting, vacuuming, and emptying trash.
A commercial cleaning service, which includes a team of health and safety technicians, typically comes once a week to provide deep cleaning and disinfecting of your entire facility as an addition to janitorial services. This type of service is crucial to help reduce the spread of communicable diseases, pathogens, and germs.
There are several benefits to using a commercial cleaning service. Professional cleaning services can take the pressure off business owners — especially those who may not have enough staff on hand to tackle these burdensome duties.
The use of a cleaning service can decrease sick days. A cleaner workplace reduces the spread of illness between employees, which increases productivity. Research shows working in a clean and sanitary environment can boost employee morale.
Questions to Ask a Commercial Cleaning Company
Before you entrust just anyone to disinfect your business, there are a few questions to ask a commercial cleaning company.
1) How Long Have They Been in Business?
It is important to work with an experienced commercial cleaning company. A lot of cleaning companies sprung up during the pandemic looking to take advantage of the public’s fear of infectious diseases. Look for a company that has been in business for a while. They are more likely to have their processes figured out, and they will understand the needs of your business.
2) What Size Businesses/Organizations Do They Work With?
Some professional cleaning companies work with specific types or sizes of facilities, organizations, or businesses. Make sure they can serve your needs — big or small.
3) What Training Do Employees Get?
Again, experience is everything when it comes to getting a professional clean. A service that takes the time to extensively train its employees not only will benefit the surfaces being cleaned but will also ensure products and services are done safely. This is especially important when working with biohazards, chemicals, and the general public.
4) What is the Cost?
Another important question to ask a commercial cleaning company is, does it fit into your budget? Professional experience can sometimes come at a higher price, but as the saying goes, “You get what you pay for.” Commercial cleaning costs can vary, but pricing is typically based on square footage and the type of materials needing to be cleaned.
5) Are There Eco-Friendly Options?
Environmentally friendly cleaning options are more available today, and if this is a priority for your needs, make sure a cleaning company can facilitate that. Whether it’s eco-friendly soaps and chemicals to more sustainable paper products. Ask what options they may have.
6) What is Scheduling Like?
You want your commercial cleaning service to come when it is convenient for your business. Having restrooms deep cleaned at 1 p.m. on Saturday during a lunch rush at a restaurant does not make sense — and could impede your profits. Ask about their scheduling operations, how busy they are, and how flexible the scheduling can be.
7) What Chemicals or Products Are Used?
Chemicals can be harsh and toxic. Understanding what products cleaning services use — and the chemicals in them — is another question to ask a commercial cleaning company. It’s a good idea to see if the company has Safety Data Sheets (SDS) on the chemicals and products they use for you to look at. This way, you can assess for yourself if their products suit your needs.
