Cheapest Janitorial Services Not Always the Best

Cleaning and janitorial services are necessary, whether you have several employees, or customers and clients visiting your business each day. It’s not fair to expect employees to do more than a quick wipe down and tidy, so that’s why you want to hire a professional cleaning company to properly clean and disinfect all surfaces. But many companies will choose the lowest quote, which may sound good on paper, but may not always be the best solution.

If you’re choosing between three different janitorial companies, you’ll need to have the quote broken down into what exactly is and isn’t included. Sure, you can hire a cleaner to come by twice a week for an hour, but how much are they going to get done in that time? If you compare it to how much time you spend cleaning your house, that may bring your expectations more into alignment with reality.

A good cleaner should be doing more than wiping down surfaces with a damp rag, vacuuming, and emptying the garbage bins. They should also be properly disinfecting all surfaces, to prevent the spread of disease. A1 understands that germs are commonly spread on door handles/knobs, faucets, and desks, and will properly wipe them down. They’ll pay attention to the details, and clean the edges and corners of a room that are often neglected by a cleaner who has only a few minutes to spend in each room.

Many cleaning companies force their cleaners to rush, and they’re given quotas that they have to fill. This doesn’t bode well for the care of your office. You don’t want someone madly dashing around vacuuming and damaging walls and furniture.

A1 also offers two different options for the client’s choice in cleaning supplies: regular cleansers, or green option cleansers. The green cleansers are safer for the environment, and are also better to use around employees who may have asthma or other breathing difficulties. This service is available from A1 for an additional cost.

Many of the cheaper cleaning services don’t even use cleansers, and they reuse the same rags to clean bathroom and kitchen. This is bad for the health of your employees, and with norovirus on the rise, a bad stomach infection could affect the output of your business should everyone become sick. Without the proper cleaning services, your business could actually lose money.

The cheapest janitorial services may also take other shortcuts. Not showing up on time, or at all is often one of the most common complaints about cleaning companies. It can become time-consuming to file a dispute with a bad cleaning company.

Hiring a professional cleaning company such as A1 will ensure that your cleaners arrive when they say they will, and that you won’t need to be monitoring their every move. You can place your trust in A1 to show up on time, and to clean your company’s buildings properly.
