Offices need to have a clean environment; this is not just for aesthetic purposes but also for health reasons. A hygienic environment will minimize the chances of your workers getting sick and missing work. When you are looking to hire a service provider, you definitely need to know what you are signing yourself up for.

Equipment

You need to know if the company will provide all the equipment that they need to do the job. If they will not, then they need to give you a breakdown of what needs to be bought so that you can keep it in your office. The cleaner will then use the stuff and leave it there when they go.

If the company is providing all the supplies and equipment, they will charge you more than if you are the one who is to provide the required supplies. This can save you money and time since you can concentrate on your core business and leave all the cleaning to these professionals.

Days

The company should assess the place and let you know what needs to be cleaned and how often it should be cleaned. They will do this at the start of your relationship. They will walk through the building to check the area.

After doing this, they will then send you a quote of how much they will be charging you. A good cleaner should be able to check out your carpet and tell you how many times to clean it in a year based on the type of carpet you have and the foot traffic.

Services 

You need to know what the corporate cleaning service can do and what they cannot do. Since cleaning companies are different, you need to ask the company whether they can meet your needs. Some of the services offered by most companies include:

– Mopping floors
– Dusting surfaces
– Sanitizing the restroom area
– Cleaning the kitchen and appliances
– Dusting ceiling fans

– Cleaning inside windows – However, most companies will not agree to clean the outside of the windows. You can hire professional cleaners who have specialized in this area.

Therefore, first identify what you need cleaned and ask the company if they can met this need.

Insured

The company should have insured its workers. In case a worker gets hurt when they are at work, their insurance will cover them. In addition, in case any of your employees or customers gets hurt as a result of the cleaning exercises going on at your premises, the insurance can compensate them for any injury sustained.

For example, a customer might slip when walking into the office as a result of the floor being slippery after being mopped.

Insurance also protects you in case any of the cleaners steals or damages something at your office. Office equipment can be pretty expensive, so you need to protect yourself so as to minimize expenses incurred.
