Hiring a commercial cleaning service to keep your offices clean will go a long way in maintaining a healthy and clean workplace. Here, you'll find a few tips to help ensure that your workplace is kept as clean as possible with the help of a commercial cleaning service.
Clear the Surfaces
When it comes to the desks and work surfaces, it's important that paperwork is not left scattered about. Many commercial cleaning services do not allow their cleaners to move documents and things that are on desks. This means that the surface of the desk will not be wiped fully—the cleaner will wipe around anything left on the desk.
If you have your employees clear their desk and work surfaces, the cleaners will be able to do a better job wiping everything down each night. Instead of wiping around things, the entire surface can be cleaned and disinfected.
Provide Special Cleaning Solutions
If you have been using a particular cleaning solution and would prefer that the product continue to be used, make sure that the cleaning service is aware and that you provide them with enough product to do their jobs properly.
This is common for real wood furniture. If you use one product for years and then change to a different product, hazing can occur if the wax content is too high in one of the products.
Communicate with the Cleaning Service
Any time you are displeased with any aspect of the service, it's important that you contact the cleaning service and discuss what's been going on. Chances are, if something has been going well for weeks or months prior to noticing the issue, there could be a new employee cleaning your offices. When new people come in, it can take some time to train them to do the job this particular service typically provides. Talk it over with the service before getting upset and considering changing companies altogether.
Learn about Add-On Services
If there are things, like office plants, not getting cleaned, contact the cleaning service and ask about add-on services for nonstandard cleaning. This would include the cleaning of plants, scrubbing of carpeting, washing of windows—all of the services that wouldn't typically be done in a nightly cleaning.
Your commercial cleaning service will keep things looking great, but there are some things that you'll have to do to help the process along. When you work well with your cleaners, your cleaners will go above and beyond to ensure you're pleased with the outcome.
