When it is time to hire a commercial janitorial service, what are the different qualities that you should be looking for?

It is an important decision for many businesses when they choose to hire a commercial janitorial service to perform all of their cleaning needs. Business owners and building managers want the best service to protect the building assets and employees’ health and safety, while still maintaining established budgets.  In the following article, we’ll be taking a closer look at what you need to consider before you hire a professional janitorial service. 

The first quality you need to look at when you’re hiring a janitorial service is their experience.  With over 800,000 janitorial companies in the US today, you will want to make sure that the company you select has decades of experience as well as an established client base.  A top commercial janitorial service will be prepared to develop custom solutions for your facility.  They should be well trained in the latest cleaning and disinfection procedures and able to create a cleaning protocol that meets your specific needs.  Best in class companies will also be able to provide client testimonials and case studies.

A second important quality is how the commercial janitorial service is accountable for completing the scope of work defined in the contract.  Ensure that they have a strong management team that works with the janitorial staff.  It is often helpful to make sure that the management team is accessible and even available to make regular site visits, if necessary.  Technology can be a great tool to drive accountability as well.  Ask prospective commercial janitorial companies if they have web and mobile systems in place to perform inspections and schedule project work.  Technology like daily timekeeping systems will help ensure that the cleaning staff is on time and present at the correct facility.

Finally, choosing a commercial janitorial company that is comprehensive is also important.  While not all facilities will require the same services, choosing a professional janitorial company that has expertise across multiple cleaning vectors can help ensure that you are getting the latest and best solutions.  For example, in today’s current COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to not only clean but also disinfect for the health of all employees and visitors.  Find out if the commercial janitorial service offers fine mist fogging as an option to disinfect high touch and hard to clean areas.  If your facility has carpets, it may be important to determine if they can offer in-house carpet cleaning to help maintain its condition and so you do not have to then hire an additional company.
