When thinking about commercial cleaning services, standard office cleaning (bathroom/kitchen cleanup, trash removal, vacuuming, etc.) is what most likely comes to mind. However, there are a variety of spaces that often need commercial janitorial or cleanup services as well, including schools, retail spaces, medical grade cleanrooms, and even construction sites. After the building/remodeling job is done, but before the business is able to move in, either the construction company or new tenant will contract out a local cleaning service to take care of any leftover dirt or debris and prepare the space for customers and employees.
There are many advantages to having a professional cleaning crew handle the cleaning job. Professional cleaners are required to have many different tools and an array of cleaning techniques to properly clean specific materials that the construction company or business moving into the space might not have or know about. Outsourcing the cleaning needs means that the company does not have to hire any additional employees to do the job, or have employees stay behind when they could be moving onto the next job, while giving them a professional who will do all of the cleaning effectively, quickly, and safely. Additionally, professional cleaning services are aware of the local regulations regarding cleaning substances, recycling, and disposal of waste and different debris. Making sure everything is properly disposed of eliminates further fines or fees for the construction company and new tenant.
If the company hiring the professional janitorial service is the one moving into the space or having the space renovated, going with a local office cleaning company also gives them a chance to try out a commercial cleaning company at a relatively low risk. If the company does an impressive job cleaning up the space, are easy to work with, and show strong customer service, it would be smart to consider hiring them to continue to clean and maintain the space on a regular basis. If the company exhibits a lot of red flags, that is good to find out sooner rather than later when they have just been contracted for one specific cleaning job.
