Buying Guide to Office Cleaning Services
It’s important to choose your office cleaning services with care. A clean, fresh and hygienic environment will help keep staff morale high, create a great first impression for clients and ensure that your company is complying with workplace regulations.
But with so many cleaning companies out there, how do you know where to start? Luckily, we have put together a five minute guide to help you make the right decision for your company.
What to Look for in Your Commercial Cleaning Services
First and foremost, be sure to choose a company that provides specialist cleaning services for offices. Staff who have been trained specifically in cleaning offices will understand their role inside out, enabling them to work more quickly, efficiently and professionally. For example, a domestic cleaner might not be trained to tackle the high concentration of germs on office phones, keyboards and door handles, but a specialist office cleaner will.
Those providing specialist cleaning services for offices should also know what is required in terms of the health and safety regulations, in turn ensuring that your company complies with current government legislation.
You can be even more certain of this by checking to see if the company has any nationally recognised accreditations. For example, ISO 9001; ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 are all good indications that the company is taking quality, the environment and occupational health seriously and complying with national standards. Client references and testimonials can also give a good indication of the quality of the service provided.
Your chosen company should offer a wide range of office cleaning services and be willing to adapt the service to suit your company rather than the other way round. This will ensure you get a personal service that is flexible to your business’s individual requirements and budget, consequently enabling you to get more value for your money.
You could even try a company that combines office cleaning services with other aspects of facilities management to save your organisation money, time and hassle. However, it’s important to choose carefully to ensure that you don’t end up with a ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’.
