When you are looking for a commercial cleaning company there are many things to consider. The first thing that will probably run thru your mind is how much is it going to cost. Well the first thing to remember is not to go with a company just because they are cheaper. They may be cheaper for the wrong reasons. For example they may not be insured or bonded.
Office equipment and furniture is expensive. If something were to happen while they were cleaning your business and they are not insured then you will have to pay for it out of your own pocket. The same goes for if something were to come up missing. If they are not insured or bonded then you will have to replace the item yourself. So it is not beneficial to have a company that is not insured or bonded.
Another reason they may be cheaper is that they are inexperienced. So you will not get the same kind of service that you would get with a company with more experience. Or they may not provide all of the same services. So when you are going around checking for prices make sure to ask what they do for the price they are asking. There may be certain things that you need done and the company may not offer. To add on the service may end up being more expensive then going with a company that cost just a little more.
Most companies charge a certain amount per square feet. So depending on the size of your office will depend on how much you are going to pay. If you have a larger area to clean then they might give you a discount the extra room. Depending on if you have to supply your cleaning supplies that will affect the price of the cleaning service as well.
Some companies may also have contracts. Most of the contracts are about a year long. This may seem like you are locking yourself into a trap. But they are many benefits to signing a contract. The first is that there is usually a clause in there that if you are unhappy they will either come back and clean any areas that they may have missed or they will credit your account. If you are not in a contract similar to this then you may end up having for them to come back to redo the service.
