Why Investing In Quality Cleaning Is Good For Your Business

Not all cleaning companies are created equally. The cheapest is not necessarily the best. In fact, more often than not, hiring the cheapest cleaners can be a costly choice in the long run.

Cleaning your business is an investment. First impressions count – you want your clients to see a consistently clean workspace.  You also want to provide an environment that is hygienic because healthy staff mean reduced liabilities as a result of sick days.

In this article, I want to share with you some important factors about why you need to see your cleaning contractor as an investment.  Sometimes spending a little more to get the right cleaner will deliver you long term value.

A better cleaner has the right insurance policies

A quality cleaning company will have the right insurance policies – to protect your premises, staff and customers, as well as their employees.  They’ll have insurance to: cover damage to property or lost/stolen property, to protect their employees and your staff or clients that may be injured as a result of their cleaning activities. Obviously, you hope nothing goes wrong, and often it won’t but you want to make sure you have that safety net in case something does go wrong.

Appropriately paid staff equals no cut corners

The cheapest cleaning company is likely to have the lowest salaries. If their staff aren’t paid well, where’s the incentive for staff to put in a proper effort when cleaning your office? Obviously, it doesn’t exist. Cleaners will want to clean your office as quickly as possible as they will need to do more jobs to earn an adequate salary. Conversely, if you invest in quality cleaning, you can be assured that staff are paid fairly and they will be more likely to do a proper cleaning job.

Superior quality cleaning products

A quality cleaning company will have better quality cleaning products. They’ll invest in environmentally friendly products, they’ll invest in products that are safer for humans – i.e. non-poisonous. They’ll also offer a better clean that means that your office will be cleaner. And this leads on to our next point.

Healthier Staff

​As much as you’d like to have sick staff stay at home, sometimes, they do come into the office and spread germs. Only high quality cleaning products will kill germs and ensure that you have healthier staff.

  1. The cleaning company’s location and its proximity to you

    The right cleaning company will have a location nearby but also, and somewhat more importantly, their team of cleaners that work on your premises should live close by. You know there’s less chance of them running late or worse still not making a cleaning appointment.  Also, there’s more chance of them being available if there’s an emergency.

  2. The cost and how much value they offer

    ​The cheapest is not always the best. You need to factor in: the quality of clean, how much the company pays their cleaners and also what insurances they might have. You don’t want the frustration of a cleaner that does a shoddy job or one that cuts corners.

  3. Compulsory staff security checks

  4. References and testimonials

    ​Does your cleaning company have testimonials and references from current clients that they are happy to share with you? It is always important to check with other customers of theirs to understand what sort of cleaning job they do. You want to be satisfied that you are getting a cleaner that will clean effectively and safely.

  5. Insurances

    Does the cleaning compnay have appropriate insurances? While you would hope that nothing ever goes wrong, you do want to be protected just in case something does. For this reason, you need to make sure that you are dealing with a company that has appropriate insurance cover for the work that they are doing.

  6. Are they environmentally friendly and safe

    Not all chemical cleaning products are created equality. For the sake of the environment and for the safety of your staff you want to make sure that the cleaning products used are environmentally friendly and safe.
