What Separates Great Janitorial Service From Mediocre Janitorial Service?

When you go to hire a commercial cleaning service, there will be a lot of options. However, not all of them are made equal. The challenge is going to be trying to figure out which one is the best option to go with. To help make this decision easier, here are a few qualities that separate the great janitorial services from the mediocre ones.

Access to Advanced Equipment

Cleaning a home is going to require much different equipment than what is needed to clean an office building. Therefore, it is important that whatever service you hire has access to the latest and greatest equipment. Some companies might try to convince you that they purchase only the highest-quality products from stores and make sure to work extra hard.

However, it doesn’t matter how much elbow grease you put into the cleaning process if you are using under-qualified products. And using too much force or spending too much time cleaning one area using this residential cleaning equipment can actually end up damaging the floors or other areas in a commercial building.

Excludes Harsh Cleaning Chemicals

Some cleaning tasks require a stronger cleaning product. However, there should not be any need for extremely harsh cleaning chemicals. By using these products, it significantly increases the chances of some damage occurring to the various surfaces throughout the workplace.

So before you allow a company to come into your workplace and start cleaning, it is worth it to ask them what cleaning products they plan to use. If they mention only natural or mild cleaning products, then this is a good sign that they have done their homework and know the value of using products that do not contain any harsh ingredients.

They Ask Questions About Your Company Operations

In order to properly clean a workplace, a cleaning service is going to need to know a bit about how that company operates. While they obviously don’t need every detail about your business, they should know some key pieces of information. For example, it is handy for the cleaning company to know where you keep your toiletries stored, where waste supplies should be disposed of, and if there are any areas that only get used on certain days.

Having access to this information is something that can often help out a cleaning service immensely. However, it is not information that should need to be volunteered by you. Instead, a great janitorial service will have the experience and foresight to ask you these and any other relevant questions during the consultation.

If you are trying to decide between two companies and only one of them made sure to ask these questions, then you should go with that business. This is indicative of their extensive industry experience and willingness to go that extra mile while cleaning.

By finding a janitorial service with all of these qualities, you can ensure you’ll be getting a great one. If you’re ready to get a great janitorial service today, then be sure to contact our professional team of commercial cleaners at Zia Building Maintenance.
