A local professional cleaning company will make sure that all areas of your office, restaurant, hotel or leisure facility, ensuring a great first impression to visitors when they first enter your premises.
However, not all commercial cleaning companies are equal and there are some steps you should take to ensure the one that you sign a contract with is reputable and matches your expectations. With these eight steps, you can find the right commercial cleaning company for you.
Choose local companies
Choosing a company that has a base local to you makes them more accessible. It also means that you should be able to see the work they complete and receive feedback from businesses within your area too.
We are based in Partridge Green and cover the areas of Guildford, Horsham, Worthing and the places in between.
Assess how professional they appear
First impressions matter. Assessing how professional a company appears right from the start can flag up any potential concerns. From the appearance of their website to how their staff are dressed, you can see when a company takes pride in the work they do.
Compare prices and services
To choose the right commercial cleaning company for your budget, you need to compare the prices and services being offered too. Some quotes may appear more attractive on first glance but you can find that essential services are missed out, meaning extra costs in the long run.
Check for insurance
A commercial cleaning company should have adequate insurance that covers the work they will be conducting on your premises. Ideally, you want to work with a firm that has insurance that covers their staff, your staff, and guests that may be on site.
Ask about certificate or industry subscriptions
A professional company will be part of industry bodies that maintain standards and vet members. Checking over certificates can give you peace of mind about making a decision and gives you additional options should you not be happy with the work completed.
Enquire about staff training
How dedicated is a business to ensuring best practice techniques and process across the whole of their staff? A business that’s committed to delivering the best service should have staff training in place. Here at Rainbow International, we ensure that our teams are trained on the latest equipment and techniques, as well as refreshing existing knowledge.
Consider the experience they deliver
Wherever possible read reviews and speak with customers of the cleaning company. Existing commercial clients will be able to give you a deeper understanding about the overall experience delivered, as well as a glimpse into how they operate.
Always thoroughly read your contract
As with any business contract, always read a commercial cleaning contract thoroughly before your sign. Make sure everything you need is covered and written clearly in the contract to avoid extra expenses adding up.
