The market for cleaning services has been on the rise. With more companies entering the market it can be challenging to find the right company that delivers high-quality services. There are many businesses out there that would be willing to offer cleaning services at a low cost, but does that guarantee that they have the necessary skills to meet your needs?
Below are 5 factors we feel you should consider when selecting your professional cleaning services company.
- Past industry experience – While it may seem that cleaning services are a basic skill, there are specific standards across different industries that may vary. Therefore when considering companies be sure to check whether they have the requisite experience to meet your individual cleaning needs. A company that has been in operation for many years and has worked in several industries is better equipped to handle a wide range of cleaning services.
- Cleaning checklist – Before engaging cleaning services you should discuss what your expectations are at the onset. Professional cleaning companies will typically have a set checklist that can be modified to suit your individual needs. This gives you a sense of comfort in knowing exactly what your payment will be going towards.
- Staff training and qualification – Working with a professional cleaning service can be great as you have the comfort in knowing that there is a team of persons working, so if any one person is unavailable it does not affect operations. However it is important to consider what training staff members go through and if each person assigned to you is properly trained.
- Customer service – There is an age-old saying that you can learn a lot about a person by how he/she handles problems; the same applies to cleaning companies. When working with a cleaning company, take note of what systems are in place to rectify any issues that arise. Some companies also offer trial period where you can feel them out and get a better sense of how they operate. At the end of the day you should feel as though this company is just as concerned as you are about ensuring that your cleaning needs are met.
- Types of cleaning products used – In recent times there has been increasing awareness of the damage caused from the use of toxic chemicals in the cleaning process. You should therefore be sure to question companies about the type of chemicals they use and its impact. Professional cleaning companies are well versed in alternative chemical products that are less toxic and harmful. This provides you a huge sense of comfort in knowing that the cleaning procedures employed are environmentally safe.
