An impressed customer or a client is the best client you can have, and you simply can’t impress anyone if your premises is not in tip top shape when it comes to its appearance. You do not want to miss out on business opportunities because a client thinks to themselves that your office is filthy do you? A good Toronto cleaning company that specializes in maintaining your business can help you greatly.
Hiring and paying cleaning staff yourself is not a good option as you need to provide and have the experience, wages, supervision, and the equipment for the job that needs to be done in your property. On top of that, it will also take time away from you being able to focus on growing your business and let’s face it. That’s the most important thing here!
This is where contracting a good Toronto cleaning company has many benefits to you as a business owner – hand over the job to someone who has plenty of experience in the field and who can guarantee that your premises look exceptional at all times. And more importantly, it saves you from dealing with all the other stuff that comes with hiring cleaning staff directly to your payroll.
Here’s a brief rundown of things you need to consider when you plan to outsource cleaning to a company dedicated to providing that kind of service:
Decide What You Need Cleaned
Hiring a cleaning company is different than hiring a maid to help around the house – you need to know exactly the kind of cleaning services you need, whether it’s industrial cleaning or commercial cleaning, and what exactly needs to be cleaned in your facility. This will determine the type of cleaning company best suited to clean your location. Some companies provide all types of cleaning, and others provide niche cleaning services so not all of them will work for you.
Get a Quote From the Company
Depending on the type of cleaning, labor, equipment and cleaning supplies required to clean your facility, the cleaning company can provide you with a quote. Do not get prices over the phone. Any cleaning company that isn’t willing to meet with you in person should already raise red flags for you. Besides how can they possibly provide you with an accurate quote without physically seeing the space, the work that needs to be performed, the equipment and cleaning supplies required, and most importantly the labor involved.
Check the Company Out
Make sure you are dealing with a legitimate cleaning company with all of the legal paperwork in order – Are they a registered Business or Corporation? Do they carry liability insurance on the business for at least $1,000,000? Are they registered with the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board? Can they provide references of present & past clients? If the cleaning company you meet with doesn’t at least meet these minimum requirements, you may run into big potential problems down the road.
Consider the Experience
Experience is key in owning and operating a successful cleaning business. Considering you will be relying heavily on your cleaning company to maintain the appearance of your property, hiring a company that has been in business for at least 5 years is vital. You don’t want to put the reputation of your business in the hands of a cleaning company who simply isn’t able to deliver because they lack the experience.
What else do you need to consider
Are there any kinds of cleaning products that you prefer to be used, or that must not be used while cleaning your space? A good cleaning company will be able to adapt to your requirements.
And finally how often will you require the cleaning for your space? This will have a direct impact on the final price of the cleaning services and will help you determine what you can afford based on your budget.
