Business owners know how vital it is to maintain a clean, healthy, and safe workplace at all times, especially in recent years. The problem is, with all the responsibilities that come with running a business, it may be too much to handle the cleaning themselves. Fortunately, business owners can outsource janitorial services to ease their burdens while maintaining their high standards of cleanliness.
However, not all cleaning companies are the same. That’s why we’re sharing a few things that can make a huge impact on your janitorial services so you can ensure you have a reliable and quality partner.
Check Whether the Cleaners Are Using Green Products
Green cleaning programs promote health, safety, and social consciousness. By using environmentally friendly products, you can reduce health problems from allergies, chemical sensitivities and contaminants such as mold and bacteria. This can then help reduce costs associated with sick leave and lost productivity.
Truly effective programs go beyond using environmentally friendly cleaning products. They also include green equipment, training, and processes so all components help decrease air pollution, water pollution, ozone depletion, and global climate change. All of these benefits can enhance your business’s reputation as a socially conscious company.
Ensure They Have a Solid Communication Process
Consistent communication from your cleaning company is a must, and it’s crucial that your vendor feels the same way. Look for a vendor that uses technology and app-based communications that provide real-time reporting so you have detailed visibility into your janitorial services.
Here are a few ways that our team at Green Clean track and communicate cleaning with our clients:
App-based text communications
GPS employee tracking and hours
Cleaning instructions with pictures
Easy-to-read inspections and results
Review Their Training Program and Standards
Each and every one of the cleaning professionals that service your building should be properly trained in the field. First, does the cleaning company have a training program in place? If they don’t, this could be a sign that they don’t really care whether their employees have the skills and knowledge to successfully perform their jobs.
At Green Clean, all of our employees undergo a rigorous, proprietary green cleaning training program. Only after they’ve completed the training are they qualified to work for our clients. On top of that, every professional repeats the training every year to ensure they continue to deliver the best green cleaning services.
