2 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Hiring A Commercial Service To Regularly Clean Your Office

Posted on

Up until recently, you may have divided up cleaning duties of your office space with your employees. However, because you want to have them focus more on their daily work responsibilities, you may have decided that you wish to hire a service to come in and clean the office on a set schedule.

If this is the first time you have ever hired a commercial cleaning service, you may not know where to begin when it comes to setting up the visits. If so, you can start by asking yourself a couple of questions before speaking with the service about coming in to regularly clean your business's office.

1. How Dirty Does the Office Get During Its Day-to-day Operations?

One question you can start with when deciding the type and frequency of cleaning your office needs has to do with how dirty it gets during its day-to-day operations. If you only have your employees in the office and you have them clean up after themselves whenever possible, you may only need to have the service come in once a week.

However, if you also have clients come into the spaces, you may want to keep the areas cleaner to give a good impression of your business. In this case, you may want to have the service come in several times a week to keep the office in pristine condition.

2. What Areas Do You Want the Cleaning Service to Focus on During Their Visits?

Another question you should ask yourself has to do with the areas you want the cleaning service to focus on during their visits. Look around the office, and decide what areas your employees can still be responsible for and which ones you want to leave for the cleaners.

For example, you may decide that you want your employees to keep the desk areas clean, especially if they work with sensitive information. In this case, you would have the service focus on common areas such as bathrooms, the break room, and the waiting area for customers if your office has one.

When you decide that you want to hire a service to come into your office to clean it so you can free up your staff for other responsibilities, you need to examine the spaces to see just how dirty they get on a day-to-day basis to determine how often you need them to visit. You should also decide what areas in the office you want the cleaners to focus on, such as the break room, bathrooms, and desk areas. Once you have some idea of what your business's needs are, contact a commercial cleaning service in your area to discuss your options for having them clean your office.
