Having a clean office is of very high importance in the world of business, and it is essential that you have the right team in charge of ensuring that your place of work is in excellent condition.
You will find that the presentation of your office reflects how well you are seen by both clients and partners, and it will also have a large effect on how well your workforce can concentrate. It is proven that a clean, fresh and tidy environment is best for working well and keeping focus for longer, so be sure to get your work place conditions right, by following this simple guide to finding a great office cleaning service!
First off, ask around the building as to which cleaning companies the other businesses use.
If you don’t have other offices in your building, or even nearby, then it is less of an option for you. However, asking people who are in a similar industry to you will mean that you can get an idea as to who you think is going to be the best for you. You will already have vetted them as well, in some senses, as having worked for other companies with no known complaints, they will have passed a certain amount of trustworthiness testing! You need a office cleaning service who will look out for your expensive machinery, and be fine to be left to their own devices, as you can’t always have the cleaning team supervised every night!
With your recommendations in mind, shop around a little, making notes of the quotes that you get.
Saving a little cash on your hourly cleaning rate could result in massive over all savings for the company in the long run, as you will be getting the place cleaned regularly, perhaps even once a night in some offices! These savings rack up day after day, and the difference in a pound per hour could be the difference in thousands of pounds over the next couple of years! Be aware f the hours that you need cleaners in, and the amount of time that you think they will need each time round, so that you can base the quotes for the rate on the same hours each time; cleaners will offer lower rates for a higher number of guaranteed hours per week, so keep the playing field level.
Do a test run with any new cleaning company.
Take them through the office before hand, and then leave them to do the job. Find a few places to check after they are done, like under a couple of lesser used tables, or on top of a door, and if they have done a thorough job, there should be no dust to find there. If you are happy with the results as well as the prices, then you will be in with a good chance of getting a decent cleaner for your needs, however, it is important that you keep monitoring them closely for the first few cleans, and then every now and again for the future of your working relationship. Be sure to get your staff to submit their thoughts on the job that the cleaning team do, so that you are always abreast of their performance in that sense as well. Ensure also that the cleaners are not moving important files or papers around on desks in a bid to tidy things, as this can make life difficult for individual staff members.
