As your business grows, so do your needs. You may find yourself looking for effective partnerships or even ways to outsource specific tasks to improve your workplace productivity. One of the areas you may be considering for evaluation is cleaning services, and in particular, hiring a commercial cleaning company to get the job done.

When reviewing different providers to find the right fit, you may be unsure of what to look for or what to consider. With our helpful guide, you can avoid making costly mistakes and make an informed decision.

Evaluate References 

Service providers should be willing to share their previous work experience and client details with you to help secure new customers. This gives you an opportunity to evaluate their references, identify their strengths, and make note of any concerns. You can assess their quality of work and how past clients felt about their overall service.

If you feel that clients are overly positive or negative, it is best to reach out to them directly or look for an alternative provider. This could indicate that favourable reviews are somewhat doctored, and negative ones could be a warning sign.

Discuss Your Budget 

When hiring specialized service providers, it is important that you have all the costs provided to you transparently. If they are not upfront or you find other expenses listed in your contract that was not previously mentioned, it should ring alarm bells for you.

However, this does not need to be an uncomfortable stage of vetting providers. You can also communicate during this process what your budget is and what your expectations are. This is ideal for both you and a potential cleaning company, as you can stay on track financially, and they are well aware of what you are willing to pay.

Ask About Their Suite Of Services

There is no point in hiring a service provider if they only meet half of your requirements. You may need daily or weekly cleaning, with additional services throughout the month. If they are not able to provide you with these, then it may be more feasible to find a company that can accommodate you. Deep cleaning services, window cleaning services, and exterior services can all be important for your workplace.

While not extensive, this guide can help you choose more effectively between commercial cleaning companies for your business. At Applewood Maintenance Systems Inc., we are reputable providers that can meet all your needs while providing exceptional service at competitive prices.
