You built your business over time and with a lot of help: teachers, business plans, mentors, trusted employees, even advice from your grandparents. As it has grown over the years, you have outsourced many tasks to experts. You found a great CPA, a legal team, and now you need a cleaning partner.
Every office has different cleaning requirements. By hiring the right commercial janitorial company, you can get the specific services you need– when you need them. Take some time to identify tasks that your team is doing that can be better done by experts. Consider offloading the first impression areas like the lobby and public spaces. Do you need carpet and window cleaning?
What about workspace hygiene? Do you need more throughout and regular bathroom and kitchen cleaning? Can you benefit from computer console or tool sterilization? How can you improve the space for workers, clients, and vendors?
Once you realise that your cleaning tasks are burdening your team, you need to think about how to improve your office workflow and responsibilities. Start to write your wish list. Standard commercial janitorial services companies can provide floor cleaning, restroom sanitation, dusting, wiping of desks, kitchen/break room sanitation, trash removal and window cleaning. If you have more needs, janitorial services can include industry specific and expanded service cleaning. Finally, some professional commercial janitorial companies will offer one time cleans, while others provide an on-going program for regular maintenance.
Invite the Cloute Inc. representative to do a complete walk-through with you. Together, you can identify the proper cleaning procedures for both office and production spaces. For example, chronic issues like standing water or the presence of mold or mildew can be fixed by resolving the original problem. Tile floors can harbor bacteria and pathogens, and our cleaning processes can keep these areas spotless.
You can learn a lot about a commercial janitorial company from the customers they work with and what they have to say. Ask for references and call them. A credible company will have no problem providing you the names and contacts of a few customers for references.
Specialized industries might need special processes and procedures. Many industries have needs beyond typical office environment cleaning. For example, most hospitals and medical facilities have specific hygienic cleaning needs such as aseptic cleaning of operating rooms, sub-sterile areas, and disposal of biomedical waste. Educational facilities may require personal protective equipment, training in bloodborne pathogens and strict adherence to OSHA regulations
Ask your current vendors, customers and partners for their opinions of commercial janitorial companies.
