If you have never hired commercial cleaning services before you may not know what to expect. The commercial cleaning is slightly different from residential cleaning, and the prices that the commercial cleaning service will charge you will depend on the work you need done, the frequency you need it done, and the size of the property.
When you call a cleaning service to clean your business property they will want to know what types of floors you have in the building. These services clean floors and they base their prices on what they have to do to the floors. Carpets may need vacuumed, or steam cleaned, and tile floors will likely need to be swept and mopped, and occasionally polished.
These services clean the restrooms of the structure so they will ask you how many restrooms there are in the building. You also need to know the number of stalls in each room, urinals, and sinks in each room. They also clean the mirrors and restock paper products so they will want to know about the number of mirrors, and whether you use air dry or paper towels for hand drying.
These services do not always do exterior windows, but they almost always include the cleaning of interior glass windows in their price quotes. They will have to know the number of glass windows that you have, and this includes glass doors that lead into office areas.
You will need to negotiate the cleaning of the break room areas. Not all services will clean the employee break rooms beyond the sweeping of the floor and the emptying of the trash receptacles. If you want the refrigerator, sink, and microwave to be cleaned on a regular basis you will need to tell the service representative.
Waiting areas have furnishings that must be wiped down to be clean and sanitary. There are also magazine racks, and magazine holders, and other elements of a waiting area that need to be cleaned. Check with the cleaning service you are considering and see if they clean all of the different types of surfaces your waiting room has.
You can expect to establish a cleaning schedule when you hire professionals. The first cleaning may cost more than the subsequent ones will. This is due to the fact that there will likely be more work for the cleaning crew to perform during their first visit. Commercial cleaning services offer some services that residential cleaners do not.
