When I tell people that I'm the landscaper who looks after our team's football field they are really impressed, and a little jealous. I don't think they know how much work it is though - it's definitely trickier than keeping your backyard looking green. Not only does my football field need to look lush, it also needs to be perfectly even so that the ball doesn't bounce at crazy angles, and not so soft that the players boots sink in. I need to keep up with all of the latest tricks that landscapers have, and I write these up here so that everyone can give them a try on their own fields.
Finding the right commercial cleaners will keep your corporate offices bright and professional and set a positive tone for employees. A sparkling workplace is pleasant to function in and will help maintain morale. Plus, clients will have a better impression of your business. Here are several considerations when choosing a commercial cleaning company.
Types of Cleaning
One thing you need to clarify before hiring a company is the type of cleaning you need. You might want standard dusting, vacuuming, and washing of bathrooms and kitchens, which most cleaning businesses could carry out.
On the other hand, you may have more specialised jobs in mind. For example, do you need the carpets steam cleaned or the entrance pressure washed? If so, check that the company you hire has the equipment and experience to carry out those tasks. You can also check whether they clean up outside and take out the rubbish bins if you have a small outdoor area.
Frequency and Cost
Another consideration is the frequency of the cleaning. You may require a one-off job for washing the external walls of the building. Alternatively, you could be after routine cleaning on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
For regular cleaning, you can possibly get better rates if it's more frequent. For example, the hourly rate for a weekly clean could be lower than the monthly rate. So check with cleaning companies to see if you can get a discount. Typically, if you want the cleaning done only once, you'll face higher costs.
Some kinds of jobs, such as steam cleaning, may be charged by the square metre instead of by the hour. In these cases, you could get a per-metre deal if the area is particularly large, and, conversely, you may be charged a premium for a compact area.
When you engage a commercial cleaning company, you'll typically have a contract for a specific time frame. Just as more frequent cleaning and bigger jobs can get you a discount, so can longer contracts. Do you want a six-month or yearly contract, or something more or less? You probably only want a particularly long contract if you know or trust the company. But it's something to be explored as a cost-saving measure.
When getting initial quotes for corporate office cleaning, ensure that you give detailed information to get accurate quotes. If your premises has unique features like multiple expansive wall mirrors that will require polishing, make sure to mention them.
