3 Questions to Consider Before Hiring a Cleaning Service for Your Office
If you own a business, it is important you do the proper research before hiring a cleaning service to look after your office space. We have all heard less than flattering stories about contractors or housekeepers doing poor work – and business owners are at the same risk as homeowners when it comes to potentially receiving shoddy service.
However, business owners can drastically reduce that risk by carefully looking at the credentials of the cleaning service they choose. As is the case with many businesses and homes alike, a cleaning service will have access to supplies, merchandise, and even petty cash stored around the offices. If you do not ask the right questions of your cleaning service, a company that is supposed to make your life easier can make it much more difficult instead. Picture Perfect Cleaning is proud of its honest and hardworking employees and we encourage our clients to ask the following sorts of questions.
How Long Have You Been In Business?
Some cleaning companies can be not fully committed – they will purchase cheap rags, disinfectant, and window cleaning and call themselves ready to offer services to business owners. More often than not, these half-baked cleaning businesses fail quickly because their owners do not consider the importance of their people – their training, their background, their disposition and skill level – before launching themselves into services they complete in a sub-par way.
What Kinds of Clients Do You Serve?
This line of questioning helps you figure out if the service has experience in providing office cleaning services to businesses like yours. Your office is unique and specialized, with equipment that needs specific dusting or polishing, so it is best to make sure your cleaning service has experience cleaning offices similar to yours.
What Services Do You Provide Specifically?
It is best (and reassuring) if the cleaning service you are considering can tell you precisely what they do and how they do it. Be wary of people who give indistinct answers or make promises without giving any specifics.
One of the reasons we encourage our clients to ask these questions is because we are so confident in our ability to answer them to your satisfaction, not to mention our ability to get your cleaning job done with professionalism and efficiency that accommodates your every need. Our people at Picture Perfect Cleaning are the best in the business, and we’ve made sure of it. With us, your business is in safe hands.
