Businesses of all sizes and in all sectors engage the services of commercial cleaning companies to provide regular contracted services to their premises. The cost of engaging a contract cleaning company is not throwaway money, so how do you ensure that you receive great value and reliable commercial cleaning services from your contractor?
Firstly, we have to consider what we think reliable means when understanding what reliable commercial cleaning services are. The three key points we consider to be:
CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE - If you contract your cleaning company to attend 5pm-7pm Monday to Friday, that is when they should attend. If one of their staff is sick, that isn't and shouldn't be your problem.
Imagine running a school and coming in the next day to dirty classrooms. Imagine running a doctors surgery and coming in to find the surgery has not been cleaned, increasing the risk of infection to vulnerable patients. Imagine running a restaurant and coming in to find food over the floor, dirty tables and toilets - 30 minutes before you are due to open. This should NEVER happen if you have a good commercial cleaning company that provide reliable commercial cleaning services.
Consistent attendance is arguably THE most important factor when it comes to receiving reliable commercial cleaning services.
CONSISTENT SERVICE DELIVERY - Whilst consistent service is key, if the cleaners are not delivering the service you are contracting the company to deliver or attending for the full contracted time, this is a real issue. It means you will not be receiving what you are paying for, and getting full value from the service. A reliable commercial cleaning service should be delivering the same high standards to your venue - day after day.
COMMUNICATION AND FLEXIBILITY - Ok so this could be two points, but we feel they go hand in hand. A company providing reliable commercial cleaning services should be communicative with their clients and respond to any email promptly - always the same day. They should also be willing to be flexible to meet the client's needs if they need to change their cleaning times on occasions, or need extra cleaning support.
CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE - We operate an advanced GPS attendance management system with geofencing. This is monitored by an on-call manager 24/7. Any "no-shows" are acted upon at the time. In the event a cleaner failed to attend, a manager would deploy a mobile cleaner to complete the clean, or even attend themselves.
CONSISTENT SERVICE DELIVERY - Our cleaners are trained by our in house British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) training team, to clean to a nationally recognised standard. We complete regular site audits to check standards. Our GPS system alerts us to an "under-stays" if a cleaner was to leave early, which will be investigated at the time.
COMMUNICATION AND FLEXIBILITY - Our offices are staffed from 0830-1700 Monday to Friday, with dedicated support teams to respond promptly to client contact. On top of this, we have a 24-hour client support line, meaning we are available when you need us the most.
A good commercial cleaning company that claims to provide reliable commercial cleaning services should be able to provide references from other local businesses in a similar sector. Always be sure to take these references up before signing a contract with a commercial cleaning company.
