When hiring a Toronto janitorial service company there are a few things that you need to consider before you sign a contract with one of them. Price, for instance, is important, but it should never be the sole determining factor when choosing a janitorial service company for your offices. Having a professionally cleaned office can go a long way in improving employee morale in your office as well.
You also need to worry about other things, such as whether the Toronto janitorial service company you are hiring has the expertise and the manpower to effectively clean your buildings, as well as what kinds of cleaning supplies & equipment they use. Good companies use the best cleaning supplies and equipment and this allows them to do the best job possible. You should also look for a company that can offer you this even if it costs a little more.
Tips for Hiring the Best Toronto Janitorial Service Company
Of course, there’s much more to it, so here are 5 tips that will help you hire the best Toronto janitorial service company for cleaning your building:
- Know your needs
First of all, and before you start your search, you should know exactly what you need. How big is your office building? Does it have a lot of different types of flooring and how large are those areas? What are the areas that receive the most foot traffic and get the most dirty?
If you manage to answer these questions, you have made a good start and will be able to pinpoint the cleaning company that will serve your needs a lot better.
- Do they have the capacity to clean your offices?
The next tip (or question if you will) is to ask yourself, but more importantly the Toronto janitorial service company you are looking to hire, if it has the capacities to do the job you need them for.
What does this mean? The size of the cleaning company can play a big role in your decision to hire it or not. For example, do you think a large 100,000 square foot building would hire a 3-man crew with nothing but some mops and buckets to clean their humongous offices? Not likely.
You should also compare the cleaning companies based on their reputation, price, materials used, manpower, know-how as well as some other factors before you choose the right Toronto janitorial service company for your offices.
It won’t always be easy comparing two very similar cleaning companies, but it’s very important to do this, particularly when you are down to the last two candidates.
- What materials and equipment is the cleaning company using?
We have already mentioned the importance of finding out what types of materials, especially cleaning chemicals the Toronto janitorial service company might be using when cleaning your buildings, but you also need to make sure that its workers have the proper equipment for the job.
Why is this important? Well, just think how faster the job will be done and how more thorough it will be if the cleaning crew is using the right materials and equipment when cleaning your floors, windows and other surfaces.
- Make sure they’re “legit”
Before you hire a Toronto janitorial service company you also need to make sure that the company itself is “legit”. Ask them to provide you with copies of their business registration if they are not a corporation, liability insurance certificate, WSIB clearance certificate, and references.
Check their references
Finally, before you commit to working with them check out their references. This will be a great way to find out what other customers think of them and the cleaning services they provide. Once you have fully checked them out and feel comfortable, go ahead and proceed with signing the contract.
