office cleaning options

There are so many cleaning firms out there that offer various cleaning services; this makes it very difficult to choose the pros from the cons. When I was a rental property manager in Perth, it took me ages to find a good cleaning company. But this should not stop you from giving your business property a sparklingly clean look. The environment in which you run your business says a lot about you as a person and your business in general. It is therefore recommended that you maintain top-class hygienic conditions at all times. If your place is clean and fresh, you can focus on other things, like letting fees and admin work. Due to the day to day activities and the size of your company, you may not be able to clean the place on your own. As a result, you may choose to go for a cleaning firm, when choosing a cleaning company here are a few factors that you should consider.

Experience

This is probably the first thing that should top your list. Experience is very important in this line of work, a good number of cleaning firms have long years of experience which makes them very good at what they do. They know all the do’s and don’ts and are able to clean every corner of the establishment without breaking a single thing. This can be the exact opposite when dealing with a startup company, everything they do maybe trial and error and they may not really be sure of what they are doing. This may lead to poor cleaning services or worse severe damage to property.

How much will it cost you?

Depending on the type of cleaning services offered each cleaning company will have its own pricing. It is therefore recommended to compare the prices of different companies before settling on one. Before hiring also ensure that representatives from the chosen cleaning firm does a quotation of the whole place. This will help you estimate how much the services will cost prior to the cleaning. In as much as you may want to go for a cheap company, keep in mind that cheap can turn out to be expensive. It is better to go for a pricy cleaning company that provides quality cleaning.

Liability Insurance

A good cleaning firm should have a liability insurance cover for all its employees. This will protect you in the event that one of the workers gets an injury while working on your premises. You will in no way be held responsible for any accident that the worker goes through. This can only apply if you hire a cleaning firm that has regular workers who are permanently employed. Liability insurance not only protects you but also protects the workers who are doing the cleaning.

Look for References

The only sure way to know if a cleaning firm can deliver what it claims is by consulting the previous clients. Through this, you will be able to know the type of people you are dealing with. If you get negative feedback it is advisable to avoid the company and precede on to vet the next one. Well established companies have their own websites where different clients leave ratings. You can also take advantage of this to learn more about the company.

Cleaning Products used

The market is currently flooded with a number of cleaning detergents and other chemicals, but not all are good. Some chemicals may not be environmentally friendly and as a result, may turn out to be health hazards. If such chemicals are used you will not only be harming the environment but you will be putting your health at risk as well. Most cleaning firms may opt for cheap cleaning products that may pose serious threats when used. To avoid this ensure that you go through the list of the products and the equipment that the firm intends to use when cleaning your workspace.
