If you're looking for an office cleaner so that you do not have to do the job yourself, you'll need to find a good reliable cleaner that will do the job right. A good office cleaning company has several characteristics. Before you hire an office cleaner, look for the following:
The office cleaning company is bonded, insured, and licensed
Any office cleaner worth its salt is going to be bonded, insured and licensed. This has a few advantages for you. Number one, it protects you in the event of theft or loss caused by the company, because you'll be reimbursed for any damages or theft occurring as a result of company error. Number two, a licensed company is one that can be found and checked up on. Simply hiring an individual without a license or insurance and with no bond may save you some money in the short run, but it's also going to make it more difficult to protect yourself in the event of theft, damage, or other loss. And number three, the very fact that an office cleaner is licensed, bonded and insured tells you upfront that that company is serious about what it does. That, in turn, is likely to mean that the work the company does will be top-notch, and that you'll be happy with the results.
The office cleaning company has happy customers
Ask for references, and then follow up by calling a few. Check with the Better Business Bureau at BBB.org to see if there have been any complaints filed against that company. Research the company to see if it's had any general complaints by going to your favorite search engine and typing in the company's name and then the word "review" or "complaint." If any negative information comes up, you'll know to avoid it.
The office cleaning company is local and relatively small
It's not a perfect way to determine a company's reliability, but in general, if a company is local and relatively small, you're much more likely to get the same office cleaner every time you get service, and you're much more likely to get individual attention. That's not to say that national chains can not be reliable, but if you want individual attention and you want to develop a professional relationship with the company so that you are sure to be happy with the results every time, go small and local as opposed to large and national.
The office cleaning company is professional
This ties in somewhat with being bonded, licensed and insured. If a company has taken pains to go through these processes, it shows you that the company is serious about its business and will be professional. Therefore, you should look for a company to have licensing, bonding and insurance before you hire. In addition, the company should be able to give you a schedule of charges for services offered, and should be able to meet your schedule as agreed upon every time. Again, checking for other customer opinions before you choose a company is a good way to make sure the company you hire will be professional and will provide the attention to detail you need
