Great Commercial Cleaning does not happen by accident. In this article I will explain how you the customer can get the most from your office cleaning or Janitorial Services.
First, education. A great cleaning company should educate not only the employees on the intricacies of cleaning correctly but also their customers on how to take advantage of their services. Customers need to know how to work with their office cleaning, or full service company in order to get the most from their office cleaning service.
Be aware of your cleaning companies schedule so that you can prepare for the next day’s cleaning. What do I mean by prepare? Isn’t it the cleaning company’s job to clean not mine you may ask? Of course, but the cleaners have rules and these rules are important in order to maintain a certain harmony with their customers.
For Example, cleaning professionals are usually instructed to never touch papers or other nick-knacks on top of your desk. The reshuffling of stacks of business paperwork in order to clean your desk would completely put some customers over the edge when they can’t find what they need for the early morning meeting! So the day before the commercial cleaning service is scheduled to clean your office, straighten up your desk and expose more of the surfaces you would like cleaned. Do you really need every nick-knack on your desk? Choose your desk bobbles carefully. The more open your desk and cabinets surfaces the easier it is for your janitorial service to do their job.
Also, take a look down around you. Do you have boxes, packaging material or other clutter that needs to be organized or thrown out? Ever wonder why that old Styrofoam coffee cup sitting on your desk didn’t get thrown out when your cleaner came through? Most professional Cleaning companies do not allow their office cleaners to throw away an item unless it is in the trash can. Clearing of desks, boxes, floor clutter and other items will help to make sure the cleaners do a great cleaning job and you are happy with their service. This will allow them to vacuum or perform carpet cleaning unencumbered, thereby reducing the over all dust and dirt in your office.
Finally, be heard. Don’t suffer in silence. If a cleaning company is not meeting your expectations, let them know. Usually your office manager or facilities manager is the primary contact, so do talk to them and do follow-up with them later. No cleaning company wants to be fired because they never received constructive feedback about their performance.
