If you manage, own, or run an office, whether medical or otherwise, you understand the importance of a clean, well maintained space. However, you probably also don’t have the time to clean or even oversee the cleaning of the space while you are tending to your customers and day-to-day business. In fact, if you need to manage more with your office cleaning than simply paying your invoice and enjoying a clean office, you probably need to shop for a new office cleaning company.
If you find yourself frustrated with that prospect, here are 3 big reasons to not give up on office cleaning and hire a professional janitorial company instead.
Office Cleaning in Denver is Unique
Denver has experienced a lot of renewal in the last decade making lease rates high and giving quite a diversity to the building types- from historical to high-rise, new construction and refurbished and green. This diversity requires knowledgeable service vendors who know how to work with the right materials, techniques, and equipment to do the job well.
With all of Denver’s growth, pre-, post, and phase construction cleaning is on the rise to support business expansion to better serve clients. Our wild weather patterns can cause dust to pile up, trash and debris to clutter our outdoor spaces, and sand to be carried in from parking lot accumulations from water run-off. Office cleaning becomes part of our required regular maintenance in order to keep our space uniquely professional in appearance.
Not All Cleaning Companies are the Same
In every industry, there are the ‘bad eggs’ and conversely those who excel in service, products, customer satisfaction and more. One bad experience with office cleaning doesn’t mean you should throw the baby out with the bathwater. It’s important to understand what your needs are and find a company who is able to meet those needs effectively. Consider these areas when determining who to hire for office cleaning:
Frequency: How often do you need the space(s) cleaned? You may require offices to be cleaned once a week, but bathrooms and kitchen areas to be done on a daily basis. Or, you may require exam rooms to be cleaned nightly, but waiting areas and labs to be cleaned weekly. You may determine you want the parking lot power washed quarterly and windows cleaned monthly. Make a list of what needs to be cared for and at what frequency as a starting point for conversation with your cleaning company.
Structure type: What type of building or office cleaning is needed? Is there a need for special flooring equipment? Are there historical or green building materials that require attention different than other areas? Do you have a high-rise that needs extra attention in the foyer? A brick building that requires power washing? Determine what needs you have based on your structure.
Types of Services: Once you are clear on what needs serviced and with what frequency, look for a company that offers the services you need and ask for a quote. Power washing, interior, exterior, construction, general maintenance, facilities management, janitorial services and more are all areas of service for office cleaning companies that you may or may not need.
By clearly understanding your needs, you will find a better match and more likely meet your expectations rather than just choosing a company based on “office cleaning” in their marketing materials. If you aren’t sure were to start, consider a building audit to get the conversation started.
Industries Served: Office cleaning companies tend to specialize in specific industries, or at least exclude ones that don’t fit their skills or interest. Be sure the company you are looking to hire has proven experience and satisfied customers with the same or similar industry as yours. Experience lends itself to knowing the best techniques, common pitfalls, and best practices and therefore is invaluable.
Other Unique Situations: If you have other unique situations in regards to the upkeep of your building or office space, bring it up when you speak to you service provider. Make sure they feel comfortable with the situation and if not, ask for a referral or suggestion on how to best address your situation.
