Choosing a commercial janitorial service does not have to be a shot in the dark. Cost is a key consideration, however trust, dependability, quality, communication and partnership are vital to a long standing business relationship. The following are additional points of consideration when choosing your janitorial service :
Ask what methods are used to manage the janitorial staff. Are they employee’s or independent contractors? It makes a difference. In most cases when there is a break down in service there is a break down in the application of the managerial process of the cleaning crew.
References are critical. They are made to be called. Don’t discount these key pieces of information.
Does the cleaning service provide uniforms? This is an indication of professionalism.
Just as your facility provides a first impression so does the representative of the janitorial service.
A quality cleaning service will provide you with ideas to help keep your facility fresh and clean.
Does the cleaning service belong to the local Chamber of Commerce? Participating as a member indicates an investment in the business community. This investment indicates a higher level of professionalism.
The above are a few key points when making your decision. Making a decision only on the cost of cleaning can be a mistake. No matter what the cost, the service may or may not meet your expectations.
