Have you ever tried to hire a cleaning service for your office building? If so, you’ll know that it’s difficult because we are a dime a dozen. So what do you do? Many people have found success by using the internet for positive reviews, and asking the right questions on a consult, but there are a few things you should know before you sign a contract and let any old cleaning company in your building. This post will tell you what you need to know to make sure you select a legitimate Janitorial Service that will let you have a sense of freedom.
If you’re looking for a rockstar cleaning service, the best method to ensure you end up with something that lets you feel comfortable is by looking for these things:
Ok, well, WHY do you want them clean? Is it because you have important clients coming in and you need the bathrooms to look their best, or they won’t be impressed with you and your business, hence won’t buy from you? Now that’s a good why, which now gives the cleaning service a better understanding and a more significant purpose, rather than, “Just clean my office, OK?” We don’t respond well to, “I just want it clean”.
There’s no passion there, no real pain for us to solve. Give the cleaning service something to work towards, and give them a passion to fulfill!
Look, I would absolutely print this out and have a copy in the hand of whoever is meeting with the cleaning service that is going to give you the cleaning bid. This little list acts as a safeguard against any potential terrible services out there, and can really give you a good sense of what the correct way to go about finding that quality cleaning service.
Disclaimer: This doesn’t mean you won’t find a crappy one by using this, it just means you can be one step ahead, and weed out 90% of the really bad ones, to get to the gold. We know it’s not easy, but you need to be on your game, and ask the right questions so you can understand whether those questions get answered poorly, or they get answered like rockstars.
Now that you have the navigational tools to weed out every Tom, Dick, and Harry with a mop and a bucket, you should be able to keep your cleaning service for years and years to come.
So sit back, relax, have a cocktail, and watch your neighboring business shuffle through cleaning services left and right, while yours runs on a system of perfection.
