How to Choose the Right PNW Commercial Cleaning Company  

A clean and sanitary office or business facility is necessary for success. Your customers demand it and your employees will thank you for it. Hiring an outside PNW commercial cleaning company offers numerous benefits. Businesses can avoid hiring an on-staff janitor and also avoid cleaning the office/facility themselves. Most importantly, the cleanliness of your business is guaranteed and your facility will not only ‘look’ tidy and professional, it will also be rid of harmful germs and bacteria that can make your employees and customers/clients sick.

So, how do you choose the right PNW commercial cleaning company? As a business owner or facility manager, it’s important that you thoroughly research the professional cleaning company you’re considering to hire to ensure they are a reputable and trustworthy company who can deliver a superior clean. From reputation to services offered to expertise, below are a few questions to ask yourself that will help you feel confident that you’re making the right choice:  

What Kind of Reputation and Experience Does the Cleaning Provider Have?

You want to hire a PNW commercial cleaning company that ’s well established, one that’s been in the cleaning business for a number of years to ensure they possess the skills and experience necessary for a thorough clean. Trust is key as their employees will be on your site and often after hours when everyone else has gone home for the day. The cleaners are also responsible for doing their job efficiently with minimal supervision. Always ask for references. The most reputable commercial cleaning companies are more than happy to share references from their satisfied customers with you.

What Types of Facilities Does the Cleaning Company Serve?

Some companies specialize in just one type of facility, while others clean a variety of commercial properties. You want to make sure that the company you choose is qualified to clean the type of building/facility you have or are responsible for, whether it be commercial, office, industrial, institutional, etc.  Ask for a list of accounts that are similar to yours, in offices of your size, in industrial or medical facilities, and so forth.  

What Types of Services Does the Cleaning Provider Offer?

What are the types of cleaning services you require? Do you need cleaning at regularly scheduled times throughout the week or does your office/facility have special requirements? Do you need to hire a cleaning company for a one time job such as a restoration cleanup or an after-event cleanup? Not all cleaning companies offer one-time service. Before choosing your cleaning provider make sure they provide the cleaning services you require such as vacuuming, sweeping and mopping, hard floor cleaning, trash removal and recycling, kitchenette/launderette cleaning, bathroom cleaning, restocking (paper towels, hand soap, toilet liners, etc.), floor waxing, seasonal disinfecting, carpet and upholstery cleaning, power washing, special event cleaning, and so forth.

Does The  Commercial Cleaning Provider Utilize Green-Cleaning Practices?

Green cleaning both minimizes negative impacts on the environment and reduces human exposure to harmful cleaning residues. If your business makes eco-friendliness part of its overall mission, then you are going to want a cleaning company that utilizes green cleaning practices. Many cleaning companies claim to be ‘green’ but green chemicals and a few microfiber rags is not a real green cleaning program. Choose a company that uses supplies that reduce environmental impact like recycled content paper products and chemicals that are green certified wherever possible, and who also train their cleaners in all of the environmentally beneficial methods of cleaning and best practices.

How Does the Cleaning Provider Handle Employee Training & Screening?   

The best commercial cleaning companies hire only the most qualified and trustworthy employees. They also provide sufficient training to ensure quality and safety. Choose a company that trains their employees from cleaning to safety to professionalism. Your cleaning company should continually educate its employees on the latest cleaning techniques, health and safety protocols, and on the newest materials and equipment. In addition, ask about employee screening such as background checks, criminal record checks, etc. Choose a company with low turnover – one that sends the same employee(s) to your facility consistently.
