Why You Should Have Routine Cleaning Inspections

You and your employees spend a lot of time in the office. It should be a place where you feel comfortable and where you can get your work done with as little stress as possible. Having a clean office can help with this endeavor.

Hiring a cleaning company is a great way to ensure that your commercial space is clean for you and your employees. It can ensure everyone’s safety, and it’s also a good way to impress clients and/or customers. Having routine cleaning inspections be incredibly beneficial.

What are cleaning inspections?

More than likely, the company you hired to clean your office has a set of practices in place to ensure that they clean the area effectively and efficiently. They probably have certain products that they like to use. Inspecting their work and the products they use will ensure that the area is getting cleaned to standards and with products that are safe for everyone who enters the building.

When it comes to doing a cleaning inspection, that will require the owners or managers walking through the area with the cleaning company and discussing what needs to be cleaned and with what type of products. This can be incredibly beneficial so that the cleaning company and the company owner/manager know exactly what’s getting done. If they have questions, they can ask. If things aren’t getting cleaned up to standards, this can also be addressed.

What information should be provided during the inspection?

As mentioned, having both the cleaning company and the business being cleaned on the same page can be incredibly beneficial. Below are some other things that will need to be communicated during a cleaning inspection.


Even with a cleaning process in place, the cleaning company may have different standards or priorities than the business that is being cleaned. By doing an inspection and talking about expectations, the business can communicate which areas they prefer to prioritize and focus on and exactly how they want them cleaned.

This will also give the cleaning company the opportunity to let the business know if their expectations can be met. If not, then hopefully a compromise can be found so that everyone is happy with the cleaning service.


People make mistakes and things can be missed during an office cleaning. However, by having a cleaning inspection, it will give the business the opportunity to point out the issues. This will allow the cleaning company the ability to be accountable and make up for their mistakes.

Hiring a cleaning company can be a great way to ensure that your business is clean for your employees and your customers. Conducting a cleaning inspection every once in a while will ensure that the cleaners are doing a good job and allow them to correct any issues that might occur.
