In our How to Select A Quality Cleaning Service series, we covered the first two steps to select a quality service provide. The first part of the process, the interview, entails asking potential candidates questions regarding their service and business practices, employees, and billing, as well as asking for their qualifications and references. The second part of the process, the overview, suggests asking potential candidates for an overview of their cleaning strategy, deep cleaning schedule, and ensuring they provide their own professional cleaning equipment.
These steps help you narrow the field of candidates and eliminate companies that may not be able to provide you with the level of service you need, and leave you a qualified pool of candidates to choose from. In order to choose the best suited vendor for you, you should review the information you collected during our first two suggested steps.
The company you select should be compatible with your needs, provide a detailed and strategic plan for cleaning your space, has scalable services to meet future growth, employs well -trained individuals, and uses professional equipment. Ideal candidates also provide deep cleaning services, and can handle seasonal needs or special projects. Companies should be insured and able to provide proof of liability and workers comp coverage as well.
The ideal janitorial service company will also be able to visit your site and provide you with a free, written estimates. A company willing to provide a free estimate indicates a company that is working for more than profit and is looking to establish a partnership with you. Also, ask any potential provider for a copy of their standard contract to review. It is critical to read through the contract to understand its terms, limits, and any recourse you may have should you be unsatisfied with your service.
