With the new year officially here, the time once again arrives to consider how you got things done in 2016 and how things could be improved for 2017. One of which being, the cleaning team you hire to take care of things around the office.
The thing is, it’s easy to fall into a state of complacency and acceptance when you’ve been working with the same cleaning company for some time. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to occasionally consider what exactly you’re getting out of the deal, in order to determine whether you might be better-off elsewhere.
Well, it can be as simple as asking yourself a few key questions, which include the following:
1. How Reliable is Your Current Cleaning Company?
First up, what is your current cleaning company like in terms of reliability? When it comes to absences, cancellations and the like, are they in the habit of letting you down on occasion? Or do they ensure that they do everything in their power to deliver comprehensively excellent results? Speaking of which, how consistent are the results they deliver? If the answer in the case of any of these is anything other than glowingly positive, you might want to consider a change.
2. What Kind of Products and Technology Do They Use?
Is the cleaning company you work with currently using the most advanced, effective and safe tools and supplies on the market? Or do they still use the cheapest and oldest things they can get their hands on to save money? The equipment and supplies cleaning companies work with say a lot about their professionalism and attitudes in general, so it’s a point not to be overlooked.
3. Are You 100% Happy with the Price You Pay?
Do you ever get the feeling you’re paying too much, or can you say without hesitation that you are 100% happy with the price you pay? A good cleaning deal means knowing at all times your money is being put to good use and never for a moment wondering if you’d get a better deal elsewhere.
4. Are You Happy with the Cleaners that Visit Your Office?
What about the cleaning team that visits your office? Are they professional? Polite? Well-presented? Reliable? Consistent? There’s really no reason these days to deal with office cleaners that are in any way to the contrary of any of these. If you are, you’re putting your money to use on service that could stand to be improved…big time!
5. Do You Ever Find Yourself Redoing Jobs That Should Have Been Done?
Last but not least, if you ever find yourself redoing or going over the work your cleaners carry out, you’re quite simply wasting your money. Even if it’s just the odd touch-up here and there, you’re paying them to get a job done and they should be able to do it properly. It might be something you don’t really mind, but given the fact that it’s money that could be allocated to something else, you should!
