Choosing A Cleaning Company

Maintaining a clean and sanitary working environment is essential to the success of your business. Most companies hire a professional cleaning service to take care of cleaning tasks rather than hiring full-time cleaners on the payroll.

A cleaning service will usually come in outside of the usual opening hours to clean all areas of your site. There are many cleaning service companies in Leeds so you will have to choose the one that is right for your business needs. Typically companies are looking to save money but the company with the lowest price isn’t always the best deal.

Get price quotes from the companies in your area. The companies will have to visit your site or office to estimate the work. When requesting a quote you should also ask for a list of services they provide.

Most will provide:

  • mopping
  • vacuuming
  • cleaning
  • sanitising
  • dusting
  • carpet cleaning

With the list of services and a quote, you will now be in a position to make an informed decision.

Ask to see proof of insurance. You want a cleaning company that has its insurance so that you can be sure your company will not be liable should a cleaner become hurt while cleaning.

Read through the contract. Most companies will want you to sign a contract, locking you into their service for a given amount of time. However, you need an ‘exit strategy’ if you aren’t happy with the service they provide going forward.

For example:

  • you may want to look for a company that has a trial period
  • or one that offers a month-to-month contract rather than a yearly contract.

Consider the experience of the company. Some companies will have years of experience behind them, which means you can be sure they have a ‘well oiled’ system for cleaning and are comfortable handling most cleaning issues.

Get references from the company. A quality company will be able to provide you with references from its clients. Contact these references and ask how happy they are with the cleaning services being provided.

Working with local companies makes sense and is recommended.
