Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Commercial Cleaning Service

Keeping your company clean is key to ensuring that staff, clients, and visitors get a great first impression. As well as the aesthetic benefits of commercial cleaning, hiring a cleaning team for your business ensures the health, safety, and hygiene of your property and its assets. Like any service, hiring a commercial cleaning team for your business is an investment and should be considered like one. Before you decide to take the plunge and hire a team for your office, shopping centre, car park, or industrial building, it’s important to understand exactly what you’re getting. To find out, here are some questions we always recommend asking before hiring a commercial cleaning service.

Where are You Located?

This may seem like an obvious one, but it would surprise you how many people forget to ask a cleaning company where they are located and then have to pay costly call-out fees. While specialist commercial cleaning companies often offer larger catchment areas, opting for a local commercial cleaning service for standard office or retail cleaning work can save you time and money. Here at Premium Cleaning Services, we offer Dublin commercial cleaning suitable for all types of commercial and industrial companies ranging from shops and offices to large factories and warehouses. By choosing a local commercial cleaning service you can rest assured that your team can respond quickly in case of cleaning emergencies and won’t charge costly call-outs for large distances travelled.

How Much Experience Do You Have?

While many cleaning companies can entice customers with extremely cheap rates, it’s important to understand exactly how much experience the team offers before settling on the commercial cleaning company of your choice, even if this means spending a little more money on your contract. Commercial and industrial cleaning is a highly specified job and should include full cleaning services as well as sanitisation, deep cleaning, and specialist equipment cleaning where relevant. As well as this, most commercial cleaning companies should offer out-of-hours cleaning and/or flexible schedules for a minimally disruptive service. Ensuring that the team you hire has plenty of experience in industrial and commercial cleaning specifically is a must to make sure that your commercial space not only looks clean but also remains safe and hygienic for your colleagues and clients, too.

 Do You Specialise in Any Particular Commercial Cleaning Services?

Another important question to ask before hiring a team of commercial cleaners is whether they specialise in any particular cleaning services that could benefit your company. Many industries require specialist cleaning and ensuring the cleaning company you opt for understands this will streamline services in the future. Examples of this include car park cleaning for shopping centres, IT equipment cleaning for offices, flexible hours for retail cleaning, and more. Laying out your exact requirements and ensuring the company you choose caters for these is a must to manage requirements and keep a strong professional relationship between you and your chosen commercial cleaning company.
From our years working in the Dublin commercial cleaning industry, we’ve helped countless clients understand their commercial cleaning needs, and above are just some of the important questions we always answer when organising a new contract. What are some of the questions you’d ask your next commercial cleaning service?
