If your office space has been cleaned by your secretaries, managers, or staff and this is not getting the job done properly, it's time to find an office cleaning service. There are a variety of services you can get so that you know that the space is clean and safe.
Keeping the office area clean is a part of your responsibility as an employer, and you do not want to worry about liability concerns. Talk with cleaning companies and get quotes with this in mind.
The office cleaning company will either use their own cleaning products or expect you to provide them. You will need to determine what is the most affordable, whether or not you have the storage, and what is the most convenient.
Providing your own products allows you to control the quality of the products that are being used. It also allows you to decide how much you want to spend on the cleaning supplies. If you are worried about germs and bacteria, be sure to get effective sanitization products that will be proactive at preventing the spread of disease in your workspace.
Service Costs and Packages
Insist that you get a detailed breakdown of what the cleaning services include. Ask about these details with each cleaning:
- Sanitizing all designated surfaces
- Vacuuming and cleaning floors
- Cleaning bathrooms
- Dusting where needed
- Sterilizing community areas
- Cleaning windows and glass
There may be cleaning options that you need daily, weekly, or monthly; ask for a breakdown of all these costs to see what your total monthly expense will be. They may have recommendations for different services.
Employee Background Screenings and Info
If the cleaning company will be inside the building outside business hours because you don't want to disrupt the workday, you want to know that these are reputable people. Ask the cleaning company how they screen their employees before hiring and if they do background checks. You should also get recommendations and references from the cleaning company to see if other commercial business owners would recommend them.
If there are any major cleaning concerns that you are worried about, you will want to discuss these in advance to see if the company is willing to address those concerns and how much you are willing to pay. It's always important to have a clean workspace, but it's your responsibility to keep the space clean for safety purposes as well.
