What to look for in a good commercial cleaning company
What services do they provide, and do they meet your requirements? For example, think about the industrial facility you operate; what do you require? Do you need a specific clean, ongoing maintenance, on-demand cleaning, regular cleaning services, etc.? Before you commit, make sure they can provide what you need. You need a team that can meet all your needs, not just certain ones.
Would a company that can provide a wide range of industrial cleaning services and various building maintenance services be valuable/helpful? Do the services they offer meet your specific needs? Are they reliable and flexible? Do you require specialist cleans outside the scope of your regular cleans?
Can they tailor their services to meet your bespoke needs? Can the team manage the cleaning process? Manage the equipment and hazardous cleaning products? Adapt cleaning schedules to suit a change in requirements or emergency cleaning situations. Each business has its own requirements, are they equipped to deal with this?
Do they have experience in cleaning similar facilities? What is their track record? How long have they been in business? Is it possible to ask for testimonials, check references, etc.? Past clients often provide the most honest answers, telling you the good and the bad. Next, check who you will be working with? What is their knowledge and experience of industrial cleaning?
Do they comply with all safety regulations and compliance measures? Are they consistent in their delivery and cleans? Are they proactive? Work to set standards. Trust us, attention to detail is vital.
Will they take set budgets into consideration? Effective and experienced cleaning teams know how to work to different budgets. Understanding the cleaning business inside and out is a big part of the job, that and listening and using the information you provide to create detailed cleaning specifications that meet your budget requirements.
Do they use the right equipment for the job? Do they assess the area and choose the most appropriate cleaning product to achieve the best result? For example, pressure washers (suitable for brickwork, machinery, and vehicles) can help to remove paint and lead. Steam cleaners can help to sanitise surfaces and kill bacteria, and industrial vacuum cleaners – more powerful than your average vacuum cleaner, pull up dirt and debris from various surfaces; vacuuming is also a requirement of strict health and safety regulations.
Are they transparent in all communications, fees, and pricing? Do they listen to your requirements? Are the team approachable?
