3 Things to Look For When Hiring an Office Cleaning Service

September 22nd, 2009 by

The sour economy has wreaked havoc on existing businesses, but it has also spawned a whole generation of brand new business owners. If you are just getting started, and you are ready to move into your new office space, it’s time to start thinking about which you should hire to keep it clean.

A clean working environment is important on three levels: it makes your space a pleasant place to work for employees and staff; it adds legitimacy to your enterprise in the eyes of your customers; it helps preserve the integrity of your furnishings and equipment. Here are three things to look for when hiring an office cleaning service.

1. Experience

There are plenty of fly-by-night janitorial services that may be cheaper, but they could just mean trouble over the long term. Choose an experienced cleaning service with an impeccable record that is also licensed, bonded, and insured.

2. Trained and Certified Staff

You want to be sure that the people who come to your office to do the cleaning have been thoroughly trained in how to work in an office environment safely. Make sure that the service you choose has a training and certification program.

3. “Green” Cleaning

The service’s methodology and cleaning products should be in line with today’s “green” approach to cleaning. With a wide availability of natural and organic products on the market today, there is simply no excuse for the use of highly toxic chemicals when it comes to everyday cleaning. When your cleaning service uses green-friendly products, your employees and customers will never suffer from allergies and respiratory ailments caused by chemicals.

Follow these three guidelines, and your chances of having a positive experience with your cleaning service will be greatly enhanced.
