Choosing a cleaning company for your building/project is an important decision. You want to make sure the company is qualified, responsive and trustworthy. Here are some tips on how to hire and what to require from your cleaning company.
1. Get price quotes from at least three companies.
It’s not always best to hire the cheapest company. Be sure to compare the proposed scope of work and the quality of products used for the job. Do the price quotes include materials, labor and equipment? What will they charge for special requests outside the scope of work? Beware of deals which sound too good to be true, because they just might be!
2. Ask how long they’ve been in business.
Cleaning companies notoriously come and go. They often change their name to reset their reputation, but the company is run by same people. Be sure the cleaning company you choose has established a reputation for quality service in the community.
3. Are they licensed, bonded and insured?
Protect yourself and your property. Make sure your cleaning company is properly licensed for the work they are doing. If they are bonded, you have further assurance that you will not suffer a loss at their hands. And never hire a cleaning company who can’t show you proof of insurance.
4. Ask if they guarantee their work.
Most companies will tell you that your satisfaction is guaranteed, but what do they mean? Will they return your money if you are dissatisfied? Will they return to the jobsite to make it right? Get the scope of work and price in writing before the work is done so you can compare what you were promised with what you received.
