Is your commercial cleaner leaving things out?

Is Your Commercial Cleaner Leaving Things Out?

There is a lot that needs to be considered when looking for the perfect commercial cleaner for your business. From reputation to price, you will have a number of different factors to assess before you make your final decision. One of the most important things to bear in mind is what the cleaner includes in their service. This is often overlooked, and people are disappointed when the commercial cleaning service they hire does not do a thorough job as anticipated.

Did you read the small print?

We often have a tendency to assume that when we employ a commercial cleaner, they are going to clean every inch of our business. No stone will be left unturned. However, this is not always the case. All cleaners are different, and while some will accommodate all of your demands, others have a set list of the cleaning jobs they will do, and they stick to this list stringently. For example, some cleaners will only deal with the working area, and they won’t clean washrooms. This means that you are going to need to get someone else to handle this, which will only result in more money spent and more hassle.

Can they cope with workspaces?

In addition to this, some cleaners will only clean what is known as communal areas and fixtures. For example, they may clean the office carpet and wash the windows, but they may not clean individual desk areas. This can be a problem, as keyboards are probably one of the dirtiest things in your office. Just think about how often they get used. The situation becomes worse if members of staff eat by their desk. Thus, it is highly likely that you are going to want to find a commercial cleaner that is happy to incorporate computer desks into their routine.

And what else…..?

This merely scratches the surface of the different tasks a commercial cleaner should do. Other tasks for office spaces include the likes of collecting all rubbish, spot cleaning walls and painted surfaces, wiping all internal glass, cleaning automatic doors, removing fingerprints from around light switches, dust all surfaces, emptying waste bins and replacing liners, and much more.

The best thing to do is have a discussion with your commercial cleaning company beforehand to make sure you are fully aware of what is included in the price. You can even draw up a service agreement to ensure that this is put in writing so that no wires are crossed.
