When you choose your commercial cleaning service, a vast amount of consideration must go into the decision, but it comes down to a combination of them meeting your needs without it costing you too much money. When customers change cleaning service providers, it is often because prices go up at the end of a contract. Occasionally it is because of issues with the services themselves. If you are dealing with any of these issues, it might be time to look for a new service provider.
Your service provider should communicate with you regularly, especially when you have an issue that you notify them about. If you contact them and they don’t get back to you within 48 hours, it will start to seem like they don’t care. They should care that they aren’t meeting your expectations and respond quickly to try to remedy it. If they don’t, then it is time to find a service provider who will.
In many businesses, cleaning crews come in after-hours, which means that you are trusting them while they are alone in your industry. You are also trusting them to secure your business when they leave. If the cleaning employees routinely forget to lock your door or reset your alarm, it is time to find a new service. When it happens repeatedly, this indicates a lack of care and concern on their part.
Often when you first start with a new cleaning service, the work is exceptional, and it should stay that way for the length of the contract. If the service starts to slip and your business isn’t getting as clean as it should be, you should bring up your concerns with the company. If they can’t or won’t rectify the issue, or if the quality continues to slip, it is time to find a new cleaner. After all, you contracted with them for a certain level of service, so you should be getting it.
You have the right to expect that the employees of the cleaning service show professionalism in all that they do. This means when they are in your business, they are polite and respectful to your property, your customers, and you. It also means that they should be knowledgeable about all aspects of commercial cleaning. Finally, it means that they should not bring their personal issues to your place of business.
Finally, if the company has an extreme employee turnover rate, you might consider finding another one. Everyone loses employees from time to time, but the more employee turnover they have, the more people who will have your alarm code and the more chance there is for inconsistent or substandard work as new people are trained. High turnover may also be a sign of lax hiring procedures, which you should be wary of, especially if they neglect to tell you about it.
