You probably think that it’s about time that your office starts looking as good as new. It could also be that you just purchased a newly constructed office that needs to be cleaned out prior to being useful. Most businesses will opt to hire a commercial office cleaning service. There are numerous benefits of a cleaning service which includes but is not limited to the fact that they will take care of everything without you having to be present. However, since there are numerous cleaning services out there it is important to know exactly what to look for in order to find a good one.
Make sure the service is licensed
Commercial office cleaning services need to be licensed. Their license indicates that the business is trust worthy, has experience and adheres to a specific standard. So, you automatically know that the service will clean your office out just as you intended. The best way to find out if they are licensed is to give them a call or visit their website. If the license number is not visible on the website ask the cleaning service for it.
The service should have insurance
Commercial office cleaning is a laborious task and often requires that cleaners handle a number of chemicals during the process. Injuries, illnesses and accidents are quite common which is why the service should have insurance. A cleaning service which is insured will not require that you pay for work related injuries, damage to your office or adjoining offices. The insurer of the business will take care of everything. However, check with the cleaning service to make sure that they have comprehensive insurance i.e. an insurance policy that covers everything.
Once you have verified the above steps the third step should be to do some comparison shopping. Contact around five commercial office cleaning companies in your area and ask for a quote. However, make sure to describe your office, extent of the work and any additional services (like carpet cleaning) you will require when applying for a quote. Most cleaning services have websites so you can apply for a quote directly via the website. Usually, it shouldn’t take more than a few hours for a cleaning company to get back to you with a quote. Once you get all the quotes compare them against each other and chose the top cheapest quotes.
Prior to making your final decision do some online research to find out if these short listed companies have a good reputation. You can check forums, blogs and the company’s own website. You can also ask friends and colleagues for their experience. Chose the company which has the best reputation and you’ll never go wrong.
It is always important to hire the best commercial office cleaning service. This is the only way to make sure that you get the best service at a price that you can easily afford.
