How to Choose a Commercial Cleaning Service

Every workplace needs a team in place to keep it clean, attractive, and safe. But it can be tough to choose the right commercial cleaning services for your workplace. After all, you want to work with a company that understands your business‰’s cleaning needs inside and out.

At JAN-PRO, we‰’ve helped countless businesses build commercial cleaning services that work for them, so we know what smart business owners look for in a commercial cleaning company. While we strive to meet the cleaning needs of every prospective client, it‰’s important to us that every business owner finds the right cleaning service for their business.

To help with this, we‰’ve compiled this short guide to choosing the right commercial cleaning service for your workplace. Read on to find out how to choose your company‰’s cleaning service provider.

Step One: Identify Local Vendors that Service Your Industry

One of the first things to look for when choosing a commercial cleaning service is industry expertise. Too many cleaning companies are built on generic, one-size-fits-all services that can only serve a narrow range of business types. Identify companies with experience ‰ or, better yet, specific programs ‰ in cleaning your type of workplace.

Step Two: Narrow Your Commercial Cleaning Service Options

Once you‰’ve identified local cleaning companies that serve your industry, you can then narrow your options by eliminating vendors that fail to meet your internal criteria. Come up with a list of ‰must-haves‰ and ‰nice-to-haves‰ to narrow down your list of commercial cleaning services, and to identify your front-runners.

Some of the more common ‰must-haves‰ and ‰nice-to-haves‰ used in this step are:

  • OSHA Expertise
  • Customized Cleaning Plans
  • In-Place Security Protocols
  • Floor Cleaning & Buffering Services
  • Bonding & Insurance
  • Service Guarantee
  • Non-Contract Cleaners
  • Workplace Disinfection Services

Step Three: Contact Candidates for Estimates & Info

Once you have identified your top commercial cleaning service candidates, reach out to them for a detailed estimate and more info. This step will not only give you information about how the company handles pricing, but also how they handle their customers. As you learn more about potential commercial cleaning service providers, you may wish to add to or adjust your list of preferred qualifications and services.

Step Four: Choose Your Commercial Cleaning Service

Once you have estimates in place from potential service providers, narrow your list of candidates to your top two or three choices. Then, review your top candidates internally. Having done your homework, you should now have all the information your team needs to make an informed decision about the right commercial cleaning service for your business.
