Top Five Things To Look For Before Hiring Janitorial Services
As a company working with janitorial services, we were significantly hit by changes and new rules implemented because of the Coronavirus. People were no longer allowed to leave their homes, for the most part, and because they were stuck in their houses, the offices and other buildings were shut. While we do work on residential properties, we also work on commercial ones, and that took a hit.
However, as the authorities began easing up on the restrictions, we started getting a lot of work coming in. Additionally, other changes worked in our favor. Companies were not as careful and had to clean their offices a lot more now than in the past. We were visiting them frequently as compared to the past. We were also working on more detailed tasks as compared to the past, and we had to make sure we did a good job because people could get sick if we did not.
We thought of creating a checklist to get through if you were planning on picking the correct janitorial service. If you select a team without doing the proper amount of research, you might end up signing a six-month contract, but it might not make sense in the long run.
1. Services offered
People get in touch for various services, and different companies want to ensure they can provide these services. You have to go through the information mentioned, check previous work, and make sure the company you plan on working with can do all you need. Additionally, you want to make sure that they are doing it well and you are happy with the results.
When you are getting some of the work done, it can prove to be dangerous. You have to work with companies that have their staff, and you are insured. If there are any issues when you are getting any of the work done, you want to make sure that you can lean on an insurance company and do not have to pay for it yourself. People do not consider this a big deal but if there are accidents, it is better to pay a small fee to an insurance company when creating the contract, as opposed to having to do it yourself, which would be unnecessarily expensive. On the flip side, if a cleaner gets injured, you want to make sure they have an insurance company willing to back them, so their medical bills are covered.
Always work with a team that was around for some time and is not learning the ropes as they go along. You want to make sure the team has some experience so they know how to address and handle various processes. There are some things and some hacks to cleaning that you can only pick up through experience.
4. Training (Safety and Job)
Most janitorial teams work with their staff teaching them the ins and outs of the trade. You want to make sure that they learned and understood how they should be working on the job. There are various rules that they have to follow for the best results. Additionally, there are various processes, including using the right harnesses and how they should set up certain systems if they want to make sure they are safe if something went wrong with a setup. Work with a company that trains their staff to be rest assured that you are in good hands. People rarely think about the smaller things when they are picking someone to work with.
5. Green cleaning
In some cases, cleaning can cause a lot of harm to the environment. Some companies use toxic chemicals and other liquids when cleaning up, and these end up polluting the places and might even damage the surfaces that they are cleaning up. You want to make sure that the team you are working with is capable of using environment-friendly soaps, liquids, and other requirements, so they are not only working a clean job but keeping the place safe and green. Additionally, you have to make sure that they dispose of their garbage properly and in the right place so they can recycle it later.
