New best practice guidelines for choosing the right commercial cleaner launched by ServiceMaster Clean

14 April 2014

A free guide, with five key steps to choosing a reliable and professional commercial cleaning organisation, has been launched by specialists in commercial cleaning and disaster restoration, ServiceMaster Clean

Too often, individuals without specialist training are given the task of cleaning. Boardroom carpets, reception area hard floors and upholstered sofas should be regularly and professionally cleaned to give a positive message about the quality of your company.

Choosing the right cleaning provider makes economic sense, as appropriate care and treatment will lengthen the serviceable life of these surfaces. So what issues need to be considered when sourcing a reliable and professional contract cleaner?  Some of the steps recommended in the guide include:

Trusted track record
Always look at the contractor’s experience, particularly with similar sized contracts and sectors. To make sure your supplier is competent to deliver the service, request references and check out testimonials.

Clear two-way communication
On-going communication between you and your commercial cleaning professionals is essential for a successful working relationship. Make sure the company provides regular audits and performance reports to ensure you are always kept in the picture and let them know swiftly if you think there is room for improvement.

If disaster strikes
Trying to sort out premises that have been damaged after fire or flood is an unappealing task. A professional specialist cleaning company which is trained in property restoration can help. For instance, if there is a great deal of flood water, you may need professional pumping equipment or a suitably powered water extraction machine.

Make sure the company is a member of the British Damage Management Association. This will indicate the provider adheres to professional standards of care and codes of practice.
