How To Choose The Best Cleaning Contractor

A clean commercial site affects everything from your brand’s reputation and customer satisfaction to employee well-being and compliance.

In this article, we tell you what to consider when choosing a commercial cleaning contractor to help maintain the cleanliness and hygiene of your business premises.

What To Consider

When selecting a commercial cleaning contractor, consider the following factors to ensure that you make the right choice:


Choosing a cleaning contractor with a good reputation is essential. Any reputable cleaning company will have information on their website that showcases previous project results, customers they currently work with, and information from other businesses that have used their services.

When researching a potential cleaning partner, always:

  • Check the company’s website for testimonials and case studies.
  • Look at TrustPilot, Google Reviews and Checkatrade to read customer reviews.
  • Ask the company for references if needed.

Service Offering

Ensure that the cleaning contractor offers the specific services you need now and what you may need in the future. Different businesses have different cleaning requirements, so make sure they can meet your needs now and in the coming months/years.

Speak to the company to ensure that:

  • They can provide all the cleaning services you require now.
  • They also offer additional cleaning services that you may need in the future.

It’s crucial to ensure they have a varied service offering to avoid switching providers unnecessarily.

Consistency and Reliability

We all know consistency is the key to success, which is vitally important for your site’s cleaning and maintenance schedule. Always ensure the cleaning provider is willing and can fulfil your cleaning requirements, and don’t be afraid to ask for references if needed.

Knowledge and Experience

When deciding which industrial cleaning service to use, consider the time they’ve been in business. The longer an industrial cleaning services company has been in business, the more experience and knowledge they’ll have.

Always try to determine whether they have experience cleaning environments similar to yours for peace of mind.

Certifications and Safety

Check if the company is certified by industry associations or follows best practices and safety standards. When a commercial cleaning company is certified, you know they adhere to some of the highest standards within the cleaning industry.

The most common certifications and accreditations are IPAF, PASMA, Constructionline, SafeContractor, SMAS and CHAS.


Only hire an insured cleaning company. It’s essential to verify that any cleaning contractor you bring on-site holds the appropriate liability insurance to cover any potential damages or accidents that may occur.

Any legitimate and reputable cleaning company will have insurance and be happy to provide evidence.

In summary, taking the time to research and assess these factors will help you select a commercial cleaning contractor that supports your business and delivers excellent results.
