Owning a business is not always easy, and is time consuming. Commercial Cleaning is an essential component of your employees performance and wellness. It’s also something to take seriously when you decide to look for a contractor to clean your offices in Montreal.
With your busy schedule, it is likely that you will not be able to dedicate additional time to cleaning. Staff may not consider cleaning to be part of their job responsibilities as they are employed for a specific purpose. In addition, it may make more financial sense and be more productive to have your staff spend their time on their professional occupations. An employee of a commercial cleaning company will visit your business premises when contracted and will perform all tasks specified in their contract. The cleaning will be performed regardless of whether you are present.
2. Cleaning Equipment
The overwhelming majority of businesses will have a sweeping brush, maybe a few dusters and some polish, but if you hire a cleaning company they will arrive with everything they need to complete the job. According to the nature of your premises and the amount of work required, this might include industrial carpet cleaning machines, water-fed poles for cleaning high windows, and floor polishers.
You should make sure your commercial cleaning company is insured to use its own equipment and to conduct business on your premises. Does your staff have insurance to operate machinery?
It is worth noting that a commercial cleaning company has many trained cleaners and can, therefore, complete your regular cleaning contract even during holiday periods or staff absences. If you delegate this task to your employees, it is likely to be placed at the bottom of the list of priorities when you are short-staffed or very busy.
5. Business Premises Cleanliness
It is important to keep a clean work environment for a number of reasons. If your business is customer-facing, it must be clean and fresh all of the time, otherwise customers are unlikely to return. Additionally, your employees must be provided with a clean work environment. As well as being more likely to work harder, they are less likely to be absent from work if they work in a clean and orderly office.
Commercial Cleaner Services
Before agreeing on a price, a professional commercial cleaning company will want to visit your premises first to review your requirements and to inspect what they need to clean. Following this, they will draft a custom tailored contract for your business. An important consideration when contracting a cleaner is to determine everything that you want them to do. Some businesses may ask for a weekly window clean and floor clean and perform everything else themselves, while others may request a detailed cleaning schedule that includes tasks such as:-
- Window cleaning (inside and out)
- Floor cleaning
- Emptying desk bins
- Dusting all desks and reception areas
- Stocking toilet paper, towels, and toilet paper dispensers
- Clean fridge and microwave
- All carpets should be cleaned
Additionally, many commercial cleaning companies offer ad hoc services such as end-of-tenancy cleaning, deep cleaning, graffiti removal, building work cleanup, and gutter cleaning.
