Choosing a Commercial Cleaning Service for Your Business

Office Environments Cleaning VanYou’ve decided that hiring a commercial cleaning service for your office is worth the investment, but how do you find the company that’s right for you?  Make the most of your commercial cleaning dollars by doing your homework and learning as much as you can before signing a contract.  Most companies, like Office Environments, would love to meet with you to discuss your needs and provide a quote.

Before you meet with potential commercial cleaning providers, determine what services you need and what services would be a nice addition.  For example, you need to have the bathroom cleaned each week, including toilets, sinks, and floors.  It would also be nice to have the floors buffed every month or two.  Determining your wants and needs ahead of time will help guide your conversation with potential service providers and paint a more realistic picture of your cleaning budget.

It’s always smart to have a walk-through with potential commercial cleaning companies.  When you meet with them, ask questions … lots of questions.  If they really want your business, they’ll take the time to provide the answers you need.  Be sure to ask:

  • Is the company licensed, insured and bonded?  Ask for proof of insurance.
  • How long have they been in business?  Do they have any specialties?
  • Do they conduct background/drug tests on their employees?
  • What are their emergency response times/policies?
  • What quality control procedures do they have in place?
  • Are they willing to provide references?  (preferably references whose needs are similar to yours)
  • Can they provide a written contract with a detailed scope of services to ensure both parties are on the same page?

With the proper research up front, you’ll likely find a commercial cleaning provider who is the perfect fit for your company.  Office Environments offers high quality commercial cleaning services in the Hagerstown, MD and Chambersburg, PA region.  Contact us to learn more about our commercial cleaning services and office supplies.
