Most of your employees will spend a lot of their time working from your premises. It goes without saying that their working environment should be clean, tidy, and safe. Another benefit of having a clean workspace is that team members will feel more motivated to work and put in 100% all the time.
When it comes to selecting a commercial cleaning contractor in Devon for your business, it’s essential that you use the right provider. The last thing you want to do is choose a cleaning contractor that doesn’t do a good job or offers poor value for money. With those points in mind, here’s how you can choose an excellent cleaning company for your business:
Check the provider’s credentials
Before you hire a cleaning contractor in Exeter or any other part of Devon, the first thing you must do is check their credentials. For example, are they a genuine registered company? Do they have adequate insurance, such as public liability and professional indemnity cover?
Know what gets included as part of the service
Next, you should determine what service you get for your money. Apart from vacuuming floors and cleaning surfaces, what else does the cleaning company offer? Do their employees clean windows and toilets? Do they take care of any washing-up in the kitchen? And will they empty rubbish bins within your office space?
Cleaning company trustworthiness
It’s one thing having a commercial cleaning contractor that does a good job for you. But, how well can you trust each member of the cleaning team? A professional cleaning contractor such as Ablou Facilities only hires team members that pass full DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) security checks.
Online reviews and recommendations
Many businesses and other organisations prefer to use cleaning companies that have glowing references from previous customers. To that end, you should check that the provider you use has outstanding online reviews and recommendations.
A cleaning company might give the impression of being a professional provider and have the right insurance cover. But, what are their standards like when it comes to cleaning? It’s essential that the employees hired by the cleaning contractor have high cleaning standards and know what they are doing. As you can appreciate, a poorly-trained cleaner could cause hygiene problems, perhaps even to dangerous and unsafe levels.
Each business will have an idea of how often their premises should get cleaned. Some businesses, for instance, may require daily cleaning services – especially in premises where there are hundreds of staff working in the building. Others may only require a twice-weekly service, such as in offices that only get used on a part-time basis.
Examine a cleaning contract’s fine print
Lastly, the cleaning company you use should offer a contract that clearly sets out their terms and conditions, and details what it is their firm will and will not do as part of their service offering.
