What to Expect from Your Office Cleaners

If you are an office manager, or own the building where your business resides, chances are you need to hire a professional office cleaning company. But do you know what you should expect from such a cleaning service?

Cleaning an office building is an important job. What your office space looks like speaks volumes about your business. If your clients see that you have an unkempt office space, their impression of you as a company will suffer. That’s why a sparkling office can be a big boost to your bottom line.

If you are looking for an office cleaning service that will do your business justice, here are some important questions to ask potential office cleaners:

  1. How many years have you been in business? Can you provide references from current and former clients? Is it possible to visit a building or office you currently clean?
  2. What services do you provide? Some companies do a light cleaning each time they clean and deep clean less often. You need to find out what exactly your cleaning service will do, and how often. Will they clean fans and lights? Windows? Blinds? Will they dust individual desks and offices or just the main areas such as the lobby and conference rooms?
  3. What sort of products do you use to clean?
  4. How much time will it take you each time you clean? Do you charge by the hour or a flat rate?
  5. Will the same person or people clean your office? It’s best when a cleaning crew is familiar with your office space. Further, if there is a high turnover of cleaning personnel this is a red flag.
  6. Are you licensed and bonded? If the answer to this question is no, you need to continue looking. When a cleaning company is licensed and bonded you know that it is following appropriate state regulations for cleaning services and that you will be protected if it breaks its contract.

Most commercial office cleaners will offer similar services but you should be able to customize your cleaning package. Most basic packages will include the following:

  • Trash cans emptied in all offices and common areas.
  • Hard services swept throughout the building.
  • All carpets vacuumed and all visible surfaces dusted.
  • Building disinfected.
  • Fingerprints and smudges removed.
  • Microwaves, refrigerators, and sinks cleaned.
  • Restrooms thoroughly cleaned including all tiled floors and walls, sinks, toilets, urinals, and showers.
  • If the entire building is cleaned, all visible trash removed from the outside entrance of the building and sidewalks.

If you want your employees to be happy, and your clients impressed, it is imperative that you hire a quality cleaning company for your office space. Knowing what to ask – and expect – from that company is the first step.
