Regardless of the industry you’re in, having access to a reliable and professional cleaning contractor is so important. Being able to rely on a contractor for regular site maintenance or that last-minute emergency clean is absolutely invaluable.
If you can’t do this with your current cleaning contractor, it’s time to look for a new one.
Here are the most important things to look for during your search.
Good, honest reviews
A simple Google search will reveal all you need to know about a company. Google My Business, TrustPilot and TrustATrader are just some of the many sites that provide access to company reviews.
Testimonials and evidence of work
Any reputable cleaning contractor will provide evidence of previous work and satisfied, happy clients. Head over to the company’s website and take a look at their case studies and testimonials to get a taste of their quality of work.
It goes without saying that your new cleaning contractor needs to provide the services you require. Make sure to go through all of their online brochures and services pages to ensure that they have experience and can offer all your required services.
Appropriate accreditations and fully insured
Industrial cleaning can be a dangerous job, so it’s essential that the contractor you work with is adequately trained for the job and fully insured in case anything goes wrong.
Most contractors will proudly display any accreditations on their website, and any honest contractor will happily supply proof of their liability insurance on request.
Flexibility and willingness to adapt
Sometimes things crop up… unexpectedly. Accidents happen, viruses spread, and mess gets made – it can’t be helped, and it certainly can’t be predicted.
When you look for a cleaning contractor, make sure they offer emergency support and are willing to provide their services when you need them most.
