A referral is a valuable tool when it comes to choosing a cleaning company. If you know someone who uses a certain company then you can get an honest appraisal of their work from someone you trust. If you can't get a referral from a trusted source then you should always use the references provided by the cleaning company. Just like any other employee, you want your cleaners to meet your expectations.
Don't be fooled into thinking cheapest is best. A lot of the time cutting corners will only result in a poor quality product or service. Using the cheapest quote will only ensure that you are getting the worst performance. Get a range of quotes and always go with the best you can afford. You have to keep in mind that you want reliability, excellent results and experience and all of these things come at a price.
The new guy is always trying harder but it is also wise to consider the company that has been in business the longest. A long history is proof that the company is run well and provides a good service. A long history also means a lot of experience. Experience is important in a cleaning company because they understand what is important to their customer and how to achieve it. They understand the importance of quality work, good equipment and techniques and the unspoken rule of security and trust.
Range of Service
Why just go with a cleaning company, when you can get your cleaning to provide other services. Perhaps you need a spring clean once or twice a year, or perhaps you have warehouse that needs cleaning or commercial kitchen equipment. You might be thinking about furniture placement and indoor plants, retail or carpet cleaning. What ever else you might need, you should try to choose one company that do it all. This will save time and money on searching around for other suppliers.
While all cleaning companies should provide basic results, not all companies will provide basic customer service. Make sure you choose a company that will receive your inquiries with a good attitude and will respond quickly and effectively. Don't set yourself up for future frustrations by going with a company that doesn't understand the value of great customer service.
Due to the sensitive nature of commercial and office cleaning, it is wise to go with a company that has all the necessary insurances. It's good to know your commercial cleaners are covered for any damage, loss or liability.
