Finding the right janitor service company to fit your needs can be challenging. And finding a good one can be even more difficult. So it is important to know exactly what you need to ensure success in picking the right janitorial company. The first step in the process is to create two lists.
The 1st List:
Write down the absolute minimum expectations you have for the cleaning company. For instance, you may need on a regular basis, bathroom cleaning, vacuuming, trash removal, etc.
Then every company you talk to must:
1) Be able to provide service for you. (Some companies specialize and only offer service to restaurants for example. And some companies just don’t have the ability to take another client.)
2) Offer the minimum service that you need.
The 2nd List:
Make a list of any other services that would be nice if the company provided. These might be things like drapery & carpet cleaning, simple landscape maintenance, or grounds clean up.
Then when you are calling companies, you can rate those companies that offer these auxiliary services higher on your list than the others. This gives you a starting point from which to choose.
Finally when you get on the phone with janitor services, be sure to have these 2 lists available to ensure whether or not the company you are talking to can meet your needs. This is only the first step in choosing the right company, so be liberal with who you discard as an option. You want the best fit possible for your situation and there are hundreds of companies to choose from, so be picky.
When you have a list of 5 potential cleaning services you have enough to start setting up appointments for a more formal interview. Continue the process of picking the best janitor service to save hours of frustration in the future.
