You may have decided to start using an office cleaning company or you already use one and are not quite sure if they are doing their job correctly. Here are a few useful tips you can use to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your professional cleaning service company.
- Open communication – make sure that at all times the cleaning service company you choose knows exactly what is expected of them. For example; let them know if you need them to be onsite more often or perhaps less or if they need to spend more time cleaning one area than another. You may not be satisfied with the products they use or the staff they employ so it is vital to raise these issues with them so that they can rectify them and give you the service you expect.
- Clear away clutter – Make sure that you regularly clear your office space of clutter and unnecessary items such as files and stationery. A cleaning service company may waste time if they have to move items such as files and folders around. These items may also attract more dust and bacteria to your office space so it’s a good idea to regularly store away such items.
- Decide which areas of your office need the most attention before the cleaning service arrives – this goes without saying but is often overlooked. You may want your cleaning service to focus on high traffic areas such as reception and the kitchen area more than an unused office space as these areas will accumulate more dirt and grime.
- Book your cleaning service for a quieter time – Cleaning services are the most effective when they can move swiftly through an office with the least amount of disruption. Retail spaces for example benefit the most when cleaning occurs overnight or afterhours as there is no heavy foot traffic. The same goes for busy reception areas in office buildings. Most cleaning companies will accommodate your needs and work during the night or on weekends.
