Whether you’re looking to hire a cleaning company for residential or commercial purposes, it’s important to do your research. After all, there are plenty of cleaning companies available out there. However, some may lack reliability, integrity, or even just basic qualifications.
For that reason, it’s worth asking yourself these 5 questions before hiring a cleaning company:
1. Are They Insured?
Professional cleaners that are insured give you financial protection in case something goes wrong while they are performing your service. If you choose to go with a company who isn’t insured, chances are you might have to bear the financial responsibilities if a staff member falls or is injured while performing tasks such as window cleaning.
2. Are Their Staff Police Cleared?
You wouldn’t want a closete thief making their way around your home or business while they were under the guise of a cleaner’s uniform, would you?
The fact is, there are a lot of people out there who would pocket an item if they were given the chance. Of course, there are also plenty of people who aren’t going to steal even when the opportunity presents itself. When hiring a cleaning company, you don’t know which type of individuals are working there. At least if their staff are police cleared, you can rest a little easier knowing that you won’t have known thieves walking around your premises nonchalantly.
3. What Do Their Reviews Indicate?
Online reviews and ratings are one of the best ways to gauge a cleaning company’s service quality. Some of the most popular places to look include social media platforms and Google My Business. If a cleaning company has a high rating and plenty of positive reviews, you can hire them with a lot more confidence. On the other hand, if their reviews are not so admiring, you may want to look elsewhere.
4. Are Their Cleaning Solutions Safe & Non-Toxic?
People have used plenty of toxic cleaning solutions throughout the decades without fully understanding the long-term implications of doing so. Take corrosive drain cleaners, bleach, ammonia, and conventional carpet cleaners for instance. While solutions like these might seem like they do the job, using them for extended periods of time can leave you open to health risks, including chemical burns, respiratory issues, and even chronic hazards such as cancer, fertility issues or a compromised immune system.
5. How Many Years of Experience Do They Have?
Although years of experience in the industry doesn’t always equal better-quality service, in most cases, it helps. Keep in mind that having more years of experience means your cleaning company would have greater insight on how to get jobs done quickly and efficiently, without causing damage or fiddling around with equipment. While having a certain degree of experience does.
