Are you happy with how your commercial space represents your business?

Maintaining a clean and organized business space is essential for various reasons.

Not only does it promote a professional image, but it also boosts productivity, increases morale, and ensures the health and safety of employees and customers. 

However, while some business owners may opt to handle cleaning tasks in-house, getting employees to tidy up after themselves and running a cleaning shift, we all know this isn't the most reliable way to keep your commercial space clean.

In most cases, hiring a professional commercial cleaning service is often the best option. 

But this then raises the question of which service is best for you. With so many cleaning services available, choosing the right one for your business can be challenging. In this guide, we'll provide tips on choosing the right commercial cleaning service for your business in the Marlborough area and the surrounding communities.

Assess your cleaning needs

Before you start your search for a commercial cleaning service, take a moment to assess your cleaning needs. 

Every business is different. For example, an office may require desk cleaning, kitchen clearouts, and decluttering sessions. On the other hand, a warehouse will need much larger cleaning services and may even need to meet some legal regulations and compliance for health and safety reasons.

Identify the specific cleaning tasks required for your business, such as dusting, vacuuming, and mopping.

Determine the frequency of cleaning needed, whether it's daily, weekly, or monthly. Consider the size and layout of your business space to ensure that the cleaning service can handle the job efficiently. 

Can the cleaning service operate while your business is open and operating, or do you need them to come after hours?

This can be as simple as writing a list of everything you need.

With this in mind, you'll be able to narrow down which professional cleaning service best suits you.

Research potential cleaning services

Once you've assessed your cleaning needs, the next step is to actually research and find potential cleaning services in your local area.

The best way to do this is to search online, for example, "commercial cleaning services in Marlborough." You'll get a list of all the services in your area, and you can begin narrowing them down.

Look for things like the services on offer to make sure they line up with what you need, the cost of the service, and any reviews or testimonials they have.

You can also ask for referrals from other business owners to find reputable companies in your area. 

You'll also want to check or contact different cleaning services and inquire about their services, pricing, and availability. Verify the cleaning service's credentials and insurance to ensure they're legitimate businesses.

Evaluate the cleaning service's experience and expertise

Ideally, you'll want to take all the companies that aren't suitable off your list, and you'll be left with a few to choose from. Now it's time to break them down in a little more detail.

This means evaluating the cleaning service, considering their experience and expertise. 

Ask about the company's experience in the industry and the types of businesses they have worked with. Inquire about the training and certifications of the cleaning staff to ensure that they are knowledgeable and skilled. 

Check if the company uses environmentally-friendly cleaning products and methods if that's important to you.

Consider the cleaning service's availability and flexibility

Hand in hand with the first step, availability and flexibility is everything. 

Check if the cleaning service can accommodate your business's schedule and operating hours. Inquire about the company's policies on rescheduling or canceling appointments, or emergency procedures, in case you need them in a hurry. 

The ideal scenario is if the cleaning service offers customized cleaning plans to fit your business's unique needs.

Compare pricing and services

Now it's time to move on to your budget. Having a clean commercial space needs to be viable and cost-effective. The average price of a commercial cleaner in the US is between $50 to $100 per hour, depending on the service provided and what you're asking for, so bear this in mind when comparing.

However, most cleaning companies will have a basic pricing structure and adjust their quote to suit what you're looking for. This means you'll get the best prices by proactively asking for quotes from different cleaning services while comparing pricing and services offered.

However, always make sure you check for any additional fees or charges, such as for equipment or supplies, and ask about any potential hidden costs. 

Consider the overall value of the service in relation to its pricing. A really low-cost service that sounds too good to be true usually is, so read between the lines to guarantee what you're offering. 

Check for customer service and communication

Finally, take some time to look at the experience you're being offered.

As with any business interaction, you want to ensure you get the customer service and communication experience that works for you. 

Are you looking for a company you can always communicate with due to your company's constantly evolving demands? Do you want to work with a company that gets hired and continues working for you quietly behind the scenes?

Prompt communication and replies are always good elements to look out for in a cleaning service and help you evaluate the company's commitment to customer satisfaction.

Everything you need to know when choosing the right commercial cleaning service for your business. It's a critical decision that should not be taken lightly, but by following this guide, you should be able to find a reliable and reputable company to suit your needs and expectations.
