If you’ve been wanting to hire a commercial cleaning company but you haven’t yet taken the plunge, you may be wondering how to choose the best one. For this blog post, we wanted to discuss some of the things you should ask commercial cleaners before you hire them.
Are you licensed, bonded, and insured?
Regardless as to whether you need to hire a handyman, roofer, or commercial cleaning company. You should always work with a company that’s licensed and insured. Why? Because when a company is licensed, they’re required to carry liability insurance. This means that if one of their workers is injured while on the job, their care and recovery costs will be handled by the insurance company. On the other hand, if a company doesn’t carry liability insurance, and one of their workers is injured while on your property, your company may be liable to cover their medical costs.
You’ll also want to make sure the company is bonded. What that means, is that you’ll be covered in the event that something is damaged or if work is done improperly (i.e., if an expensive piece of equipment is accidentally broken, or your floors are accidentally damaged while they’re being stripped). Companies that are bonded tend to enjoy a greater level of trust with their clients.
Can you provide me with references?
When you’re hiring a service provider, it’s always good to ask for references. Or, if you’d prefer to do your research online, be sure to research the company’s social media pages and Yelp reviews. Do they have a listing on the Better Business Bureau website? Can you find them on Home Advisor or Angie’s list? If a company has a small stack of 5-star reviews (and their prior clients have raved about them), they’re likely a safe bet. On the other hand, if their online presence is lagging, or they have lots of 1-star reviews, you may want to call someone else.
