Making the decision to hire a commercial cleaning company is an important one. It can affect your employees’ well being, your clients’ first impression of you, and ultimately, the profitability of your company.
Rightfully, then, choosing the right commercial cleaning company for you can be a difficult task. Read through our top 5 questions you should be asking any potential company.
Are you Bonded or Insured?
While it may seem like an odd question to ask, the unfortunate truth is that accidents can happen, even while cleaning. If an employee injures themselves while cleaning your facility, you may be liable if the company is not bonded or does not carry liability insurance.
At Anago, all our franchisees are fully licensed, bonded, and insured to give you complete peace of mind, even after hours.
How Many Years Have You Been in Business?
Having years of experience in the cleaning industry speaks volumes for the company’s credibility. There is no shortage of cleaning companies out there, but a company that has stood the test of time will have both the experience and systems in place to give you the best possible results for your business. Each one of our franchisees is personally trained, certified and backed by our 30 years of experience.
Does Your Staff Have WHMIS Training?
Any chemicals that your potential cleaning company will be using should always have the accompanying safety sheets on hand. As well, all staff should be properly trained on safe handling of such chemicals. They should also be willing to share this information with you at any time.
While this will never be a concern for any Anago clients, as our franchisees only use green, eco friendly products, it is an important question to keep in mind.
Do you Specialize in Working with Specific Industries?
Certain industries require specialized cleaning. For example, a medical office will have very different cleaning/sanitizing needs and requirements than a manufacturing factory. Before you hire a professional cleaning service, ensure that they have the experience for your facility.
Do You Use Eco Friendly Cleaning Methods?
Now more than ever, sustainability is on the minds of many companies. We all have a share to do in keeping our environment safe, and the same should be true for commercial cleaners. Many cleaning chemicals can be extremely harmful to the environment as well as to those who breathe or come in contact with them. To ensure the safety of your staff and clients, be sure to confirm that only green cleaning products are being used along with sustainable cleaning methods.
