More than ever, office cleaning demands the highest possible cleaning standards, every time. Selecting the right office cleaning company will have a big bearing on how clean, and ultimately safe, your office is for both visitors and staff.
A clean, sterile office is essential more than ever now, with professional cleaning services no longer to be considered a luxury. The frequency of cleaning should also be reviewed – is one visit per week really enough to keep your staff safe?
The selection of the correct cleaning products to clean your office is also a careful consideration – do you know the difference between antibacterial and antiviral cleaners, and sanitisers? Where do you begin when it comes to selecting the most suitable cleaning products for your work environment?
The number of hours, number of operatives and frequency of service required for your office premises will all have an effect on what type of service you require.
A good office cleaning company should be able to confidently advise on the above, and give clear guidance as to how many hours are required, regardless of the size of your premises.
At Green Fox Cleaning, we are experienced at cleaning large offices and business headquarters. Through our use of fully vetted and highly trained local cleaners and operations teams, we are able to provide an unrivalled local cleaning service.
The below building is the Headquarters of Aerial Direct, the UK's largest O2 partner who employ hundreds of staff in this large building. Following this image is a testimonial from the facilities manager, after struggling with previous cleaning companies, unable to meet their needs. A supervisor and team of five dedicated cleaners attend every single night to provide reliability, consistency, and ensure personal pride is taken in the building.
Many premises will require an initial deep clean when a new cleaning company start their regular services. This will especially be the case if your previous office cleaning company have not delivered the required high standards associated with office cleaning services.
Not all offices require teams of cleaners; many offices will require a single cleaner to keep the premises looking great, and keep it safe for staff and visitors. At Green Fox Cleaning we clean numerous smaller offices, providing a reliable cleaning service to our clients. A good office cleaning company should aim to deliver the same high level of office cleaning, regardless of the size of the premises.
It is sometimes the case that businesses are happy with their cleaner, but not happy with the support (or lack of support!) provided to their cleaner and themselves by the company. There is a legal process where we can easily transfer these staff to our management, and improve the support they received, in terms raising standards. We are experienced at this process and have many case studies of where productivity and results have improved when staff have transferred to us. Click here to learn more about this process.
If you currently have an office cleaning company, how good do they keep your hard floors looking? Are they smear free and smell free?
Do they keep a smelly, germ contaminated mop head in the cleaning cupboard or do they have measures in place to minimise cross contamination and the spread of germs? Does your current contractor even understand and follow nationally recognised industry colour coding measures to prevent cross contamination? If you don’t have a mixture of the below coloured buckets on site, it’s highly unlikely they do.
A safe and clean working environment is the very least that your staff and visitors should expect. Just a few of the benefits include:
There are of course many more benefits to using a professional cleaning service. But how do you know where to begin looking for a contract cleaning company if you don’t have one, or simply aren’t satisfied with your current provider?
