The Benefits of Hiring a Commercial Cleaning Company

1/25/2022 (Permalink)

Some people have concerns about hiring a commercial cleaning company. But most of those concerns are based on false information. In this post, we’ll look at some of those base-less concerns and some of the many benefits of hiring a professional cleaning company.

Concern #1: Cleaning companies are impersonal

Some people think hiring an independent cleaner is better because you know them or are more likely to get to know them. They feel that cleaning companies are big, faceless entities, and are, therefore, harder to trust. 

This really isn’t the case. Employees of professional cleaning companies are just as friendly as independent cleaners. And while having one cleaner you can call your own sounds nice at first, it can actually cause issues. For example, what if your cleaner wants to take a vacation or becomes ill. Your facility doesn’t get cleaned. With a cleaning company, if your normal cleaner isn’t available for whatever reason, the company will send another cleaner to make sure you get the services you’re paying for. 

Concern #2: Independent cleaners do a better job than companies

These days, we’ve become distrustful of bigger organizations like companies and governments. While this distrust is sometimes earned, it’s not always warranted. For example, you may think that an independent cleaner will do a better job than an employee of a cleaning company. But that independent cleaner is just as likely to slack off and cut corners. In fact, they may be more likely to cut corners because they don’t have to answer to a boss. An employee, on the other hand, must meet their company’s standards in order to keep their job. There’s also the question of supplies. A cleaning company has a steady stream of cleaning equipment and supplies. An independent cleaner may not be able to afford such equipment

Concern #3: Handling issues with quality of work 

Many people assume that when they hire an independent cleaner, the quality of work will be better than that of a cleaning company. This is often untrue and puts the person employing the cleaner in an awkward position. If the independent cleaner isn’t doing quality work, then it’s up to the employer to speak to that cleaner. These conversations can be uncomfortable and can lead to resentment. However, if you’re working with a cleaning company, and you’re unhappy with the outcome, most cleaning companies have channels in place where you can express your concerns. Fixing the issue then falls on the employee’s supervisor. Also, if you are unhappy with your service, most companies have money back guarantees. 

When you work with SERVPRO, you’re actually working with a franchise of a larger company. And the franchises are each unique and want to build relationships with the people they serve in their community.
