When it comes to commercial or industrial cleaning, finding the right janitorial services can sometimes seem daunting. The safety and health of your team are a priority so finding the right people is important. How do you find the right company for your janitorial needs?

Set Priorities and Let the Janitorial Company Fulfill Them

Taking the time to understand your needs and conducting thorough research on the abilities of the janitorial service will go a long way to helping you find a cleaning company that aligns with your expectations, ensuring your property is maintained to your standards.

  1. Define your cleaning & janitorial needs: Make a list of what your cleaning needs are. Each janitorial service has areas of expertise and you’ll need a list to get a quote for your business.
  2. Determine if the companies you are looking at are trusted by others: Trusting your cleaning company is vital, especially when it comes to the safety and security of your business.  Check online reviews and ask other business owners about their experiences. Additionally, make sure that the janitorial company has liability insurance coverage to protect against any unforeseen incidents or damages.
  3. Make a list of questions for them: Does the staff receive training? What techniques do they use? What chemicals do they use? How long have they been in business? Do they clean buildings like yours on a normal basis? Do they have services to disinfect the Flu and COVID-19? These types of questions will help you understand the janitorial service’s level of expertise and experience. When a quote is provided ask them to walk you through it. Ask about the types of cleaners they use and if they have any specific services for disinfecting (like the SmartClean® Clorox® Total 360® System.)
  4. See if they will perform a building walkthrough: A crucial step in the selection process is going through a building walkthrough with the janitorial company.  This allows you to discuss your cleaning needs in detail and get a firsthand assessment of the company’s capabilities.  During the walkthrough, pay attention to the level of professionalism and attention to detail exhibited by the company representatives.  This is your best opportunity to ensure that your priorities match the janitorial company’s.
