Almost every time you clean a surface in your home, you will need a cleaner like glass cleaner, wood cleaner, antibacterial cleaner, or any one of many other options. Figure out what’s important to you in a cleaning product; do you want organic, natural sprays, or do you want powerful chemical sprays?

Keeping a clean home is made a bit easier by having the right tools. Using good rags, mops, vacuums, and cleaning sprays are crucial in the process.

Select a Cleaning Service for Your Office with These Tips

Every office needs a good, regular clean. However, most businesses don’t want to have their staff handle the cleaning or hire someone to clean regularly. Many businesses rely on commercial cleaning companies to keep their offices free of dust, take out trash and maintain cleanliness. Here are some tips for finding the right one for your needs.

Insurance

You want to choose commercial cleaning services Los Angeles CA that have liability insurance. Your business should not be held liable should one of their employees break or steal something or fall injured. The cleaning business should handle those types of liabilities.

Staff

The cleaning staff should not be cash workers. You want the company to have professionals on hand to clean your office. This is especially important if you have expensive equipment or sensitive information. Besides, the company’s liability policy may not cover non-employees putting your business at increased liability.

Checklist

The cleaning company should include a checklist for their staff to mark off showing that they’ve cleaned the agreed-upon areas. Ask to see the checklist during the interview to make sure they actually plan to clean what you need. If there’s something not on the checklist that you need to be cleaned, see if they can negotiate on that.

Interview

During the interview process, ask to see their list of references to call after the meeting. You need to know their hours of operation and how many days they will clean your office. Compare their prices with those of other companies to ensure you are getting a good value for the service. Inquire about the MSDS forms for all cleaners and chemicals they use to clean your facility. This can help you not only know exactly what they use to clean, but also see if there is something that may cause issues.
