Whether it’s an office building, medical clinic, or industrial complex, these need to be clean and functional. Keeping a clean workplace is critical to the success of your business. While finding an excellent janitorial service seems like a simple process, it can be daunting when faced with an overwhelming amount of options. So, how do you even know how to pick a janitorial service? Well, we’re going to go over just that.
What Makes an Excellent Janitorial Service?
The most important part of hiring a service of any kind is that they solve the problems you have, and they do it with a minimum amount of stress for you and for your company. Keep reading to understand what we think are the most important factors to consider when choosing a janitorial service.
Easy to Understand Bids
It’s important that your janitorial service provider clearly lays out costs so you have a full understanding of what your responsibility is. To help achieve this, make sure you know exactly the services you want and ask a lot of questions. Once you get your bid, it should be very clear to you what they will be doing and what the cost will be. Clear expectations are very important!
If you don’t understand the bid, it’s likely the company didn’t understand you, and this should be a red flag.
Trustworthy & Professional
An excellent janitorial service will have well-trained, supported, and trustworthy staff members. This begins with ethical hiring practices, background checks, thorough training, and continued employee support. At Brothers Cleaning, you can trust that the professionals we send into your business are skilled and trustworthy.
There are many facilities that hold confidential documents. These can be medical forms, financial statements, or business practices. All of these things require a cleaning company to understand laws that protect the privacy of individuals and the proper disposal of certain documents.
Janitors might come across precarious situations. From chemical spills and bodily fluids, to heavy equipment or criminal activity – it’s important that the janitorial service you choose follows all safety guidelines and laws. Don’t hesitate to ask what protocols they follow to ensure the safety of, not just them, but of you and anyone who will be in your facility.
Client Specific Training
Not all locations will be cleaned the same way. A good janitorial service will train each staff member servicing your location on the specifics of your office. That may include special recycling instructions or using specific cleaning solutions for applications unique to your environment.
Professionalism, Communication, and Responsiveness
A quality cleaning service will also be able to respond to your questions with accurate information quickly and professionally. If you feel like you’re getting the run around when trying to get answers to seemingly simple questions, you may want to look further into the root of the issue. Excellent janitorial services will have a responsive team, to both questions and your cleaning concerns. They will communicate clearly and act quickly.
Insurance, Licenses, and Certificates
As a business, it is important that you contract with companies that have all their “ducks in a row”. Before you hire a janitorial service, make sure they can provide you with copies of their liability insurance, required state and city licenses, and workers compensation policies.
An excellent janitorial service will have no issues providing these details.
