Once you have decided to hire a professional cleaning service for your next event, you are presented with another big decision – which company to hire? With so many different companies offering similar services, it can be difficult to figure out which one is the most reliable.
Here, we list a few factors that can make it easier for you to choose a professional cleaning service company.
• Check If They’re Insured and Bonded
One thing that should always be a deal-breaker is when a company does not have any liability, worker’s compensation, and bonding insurance. If they aren’t covered, then neither are you, which means that if there is any damage or theft when they are on your property, you’ll be liable to compensate for it.
You should always ask for insurance proof. A good cleaning company will have no hesitation in providing you with insurance certificates’ copies in advance.
• Beware of the Warm Body Syndrome
Also referred to as the cleaning zombies, warm body describes workers who aren’t eligible for the job. These businesses employ, regardless of their history, the first living person who is willing to do the job.
To ensure that you don’t become a victim of this syndrome, inquire about the company’s procedure of hiring employees. What are their hiring requirements? Do they have a proper training program? What is the training program like? If they aren’t able to answer these questions, then it is better to start looking for other companies.
• Is The Price Too Good to Be True?
It is very easy to get attracted to cheaper services. If two companies offer seemingly similar services and one is cheaper, it easy to opt for the one that is more affordable.
However, in most cases, you get what you pay for. Chances are that the company providing lower prices will not deliver the kind of service you need. Thus, it is important to factor in your budget, and make an informed decision that is affordable as well. But if the price is just too good to be true, opting for another company is the best option.
Ultimately, professional cleaning services are businesses. Like any other business, you need to ensure they meet your requirements before hiring them so that you know they will provide the services they promise.
