Are you unsure about whether to hire or continue working with a commercial cleaning company? Here are some red flags to watch for.
If the commercial cleaning company you’re thinking of hiring is unclear about their pricing, or not willing to give you a cost estimate, that is a red flag. You don’t want to hire them and then be unpleasantly surprised by a shockingly high bill after the work has already been done. Reputable janitorial companies will be happy to walk you through their pricing and give you a quote, so you know what you can expect to pay.
Suspiciously Low Pricing
Additionally, if the pricing is surprisingly low, well, you get what you pay for. A cleaning company that is offering extremely low prices compared to most companies is probably not doing the work up to the standards you want.
Lack of Communication
If you have little or no contact with your cleaning company after hiring them, this could easily lead to issues down the road. If you have a question or concern, are you able to get hold of someone easily to address it? If you are not present when cleaning is being done, do the cleaners leave a log detailing exactly what has been done and when? At Anago of Vancouver, we have a customer service line you can call anytime, and we always prioritize an open line of communication with all of our clients.
They Don’t Use Green Cleaning Products
Cleaners that do not use environmentally-friendly cleaning products are likely using products that contain harsh chemicals that may produce harmful fumes. Chemical cleaning products can contribute to poor air quality and trigger allergies, rashes, asthma, and other health concerns in your staff and visitors. It is always a good idea to make sure that you are working with a cleaning company that uses non-toxic, safe cleaning products that do not harm the environment. Our cleaning teams only use non-toxic cleaning products made from naturally-derived ingredients.
H2: “Inability to Customize Services”
If your cleaning company refuses to offer a customized cleaning plan, you may want to look for one who will. Having a customized cleaning plan means you get services tailor to your business’s unique needs and ensures that you are only paying for what you need.
Anago of Vancouver is happy to provide fully customizable cleaning plans to our clients. Get in touch today to learn how we can custom-tailor a cleaning plan to your needs and get a free quote!
