If you have a physical office space you use for your business, the chances are slim that you are the only one who ever goes there. Ordinarily when a business person decides to rent an office space, it is because the space is needed for such things as employee work, customer service, inventory storage and other useful functions.
Regardless of size, it’s important to have a clean office space. Business branding is ultra-important today. How your perspective employees and customers view your business has a direct effect on whether they will even bother to return to your business a second time for perceived needs. An office space that is in poor condition speaks ill of the business that runs it.
That’s why choosing an office cleaning service is highly relevant. Consider these factors when choosing one.
Scheduling And Availability
The number of employees doesn’t have to be the most important consideration. If you run a small business, you may want to hire an office cleaner that has only a few employees, in order to save money.
What is more essential is that the office cleaning service you choose can arrange to clean around a schedule that is convenient for your business. Many cleaning services are willing to operate before or after business hours. The reason is obvious. Trying to conduct business while a janitorial employee is doing his job is distracting to say the least.
On the other hand, accidents happen. You may find yourself in the unenviable position that a customer’s child knocks something over, staining upholstery, or an employee gets sick, and the lavatory needs immediate cleaning. In these situations it is not appropriate to wait until the next day for routine cleaning. Your service will need to be both reachable and available, even in inclement weather. It’s possible you will have to pay more for such convenience, but it’s well worth the money.
This should be high on your list of considerations. If you are going to have a cleaning business enter your premises on off hours, it’s important that all of their employees are properly bonded. They should also be responsibly insured, so that your business does not have to cover their employees for any injuries that may occur during work. Any verifiable cleaning business should be able to provide you with information on background checks, drug testing and the methods by which their employees are chosen, as well as the training they are given.
Consider an office cleaning service from iCleaning to be an extension of your own business. How well they do their job affects your own company’s image, and is a part of advertising.
