Will the Best Janitorial Service Please Stand Up!
In this day and age of digital advertising, many businesses are making claims that they are the best in their industry. And, it’s no different when it comes to janitorial service companies. Just look at some of the ad headlines and website titles that commercial cleaning companies are using; “The Best Janitorial Service in South Florida” or “The Leading Company in Ft. Lauderdale,” etc., etc. So as a consumer, how can you tell the difference between all these “great companies” and pick just one? That’s what you’re about to find out.
1) Look at the Janitorial Company’s Customer List:
Go to the janitorial companies website and find out what industries they serve. Many commercial cleaning companies will post a partial or complete customer list on their site. Look through the list to see if they service the type of business you have. We service most types of businesses in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
2) Ask the Commercial Cleaning Company What Makes Them Different:
Many cleaning companies say they’re different and better than the rest, but offer no real explanation as to how or why they’re different. If you’re looking for a new cleaning service, chances are you weren’t happy with the last company for more than one reason.
Maybe they were forgetting to throw out the trash, or didn’t dust thoroughly enough. Or, you just weren’t satisfied with the way your floors or restrooms were cleaned. Speak to the company about specific complaints you’ve had and ask them how they’ll get better results. The cleaning company should be able to offer concrete solutions to address the problems you’ve had.
3) Quality Control Starts With Using the Right Equipment:
The old adage rings true in the cleaning industry as it does in every trade: You have to use the right tools to get the job done right! Believe it or not, the number one reason a cleaning company fails is that they don’t provide their staff with the best tools for the job. So, as a consumer how can you know if the company you’re about to hire will be using modern and up to date cleaning equipment and supplies?
4) Ask This One Question Before Hiring a Janitorial Service:
Cleaning companies (both small and large) often rely on outdated, inexpensive equipment to get the job done. The most common example we’ve seen is the widespread use of the string mop and bucket system. This type of outdated mopping system is flawed and spreads more dirt around than it removes.
So, the best way to know if the cleaning company will be using modern equipment and supplies is to ask one simple question: Will you be using string mops? If the answer is yes, chances are they’ll be using other outdated equipment as well. And, more than likely, you won’t get the results you want.
5) How the Best Companies Remain Price Competitive
At this point you might be thinking that the best companies have to be more expensive than the others. After all, they’re investing in better equipment and probably paying their staff more. So, how can a company remain price competitive and still be the best?
The answer lies in using high efficiency equipment and developing streamlined workflows for each facility to control labor costs. So, how is this done? We’ll know the answer after we do a walk through in your facility and design a customized cleaning program to meet your needs. At that time, we’ll show you how we can provide a better service and stay within your budget.
