As a business owner or manager, you want to ensure that you provide your team with the very best of work environments that you can. Cleanliness plays a huge role in the quality of the office, so ensuring that your cleaning company is doing a good job is important. Here, we’re going to look at the hallmarks of a good cleaning company.
They don’t miss anything
Naturally, you want your cleaning contractors to provide a comprehensive service for the whole office. However, due to a lack of systemised cleaning routines or the equipment they need, certain areas and materials can be left out of the process. Specialist equipment and attention to detail are needed for windows, linoleum, carpet, and the like. It’s worth putting together a checklist of the places that need to be cleaned in the office to ensure nothing is missed.
They offer a consistent level of clean
Even if they’re cleaning everything that needs to be cleaned, are they doing it to a standard that they can maintain over time? No-one is perfect, and an off-day can be forgiven. However, if they don’t have an organised approach to cleaning, inconsistency in cleaning standards might be the only consistent part of their service, which means it’s time to get rid of them.
They’re not taking shortcuts
Efficiency is always a plus when it comes to a cleaning company, except when it comes at the expense of quality. Some common signs that your cleaners are prone to cutting corners include that they may not move chairs or clean under desks, meaning that plenty of dust and even piles of clutter can be left to be discovered by your team. If they’re cutting those corners, it’s not hard to imagine that they’re also taking shortcuts when ensuring the hygiene of the workplace.
The bathroom is properly taken care of
Nowhere is that hygiene more important than in the bathroom. Sub-par cleaning services will simply bleach the toilets and use air freshener for the rest. However, you can still see (and eventually smell) the signs it hasn’t been thoroughly and effectively cleaned. Wearing a pair of gloves, you can touch the surface of mirrors, tiles, sinks, and toilets to ensure that they’re not grimy or scaly. If they’re not smooth, your current cleaning contractors aren’t doing their duty.
The job isn’t left unfinished
During a clean, surfaces such as the floor may be wet for a time. However, if floors are still wet whenever your staff are working, this poses a huge risk to their health and safety. A professional cleaning company will ensure that their task is complete and that the workplace is suitable for your team when they’re there.
If your cleaning contractors aren’t providing services to the standards above, it’s time to look for a replacement.
