Keeping an office building or factory clean isn’t at the forefront of everyone’s mind, but it is a very important ingredient in maintaining a happy and safe work environment. With so many cleaning companies out there, all vying for the company’s business, it can be very difficult to know which service provider to choose. Here are some tips on how to pick the right Janitorial Service in Torrance.
If the janitorial service does not insist on performing a walk-through of the building being cleaned, they should be crossed off of the list of candidates. While some services try to shortcut by giving a price quote based on the square footage of the building, this estimate does not take into account how space is being used or the makeup of each and every room. Any business that does not want to check things out beforehand is providing a warning sign to heed.
More Than Green
It seems like every janitorial service in Torrance touts their use of environmentally friendly cleaning products, but “green” should never take the place of common sense. Ask how they protect the employees of the building being cleaned by using proper disinfectant techniques. For instance, it does not matter how green the company is if they are using the same mop to clean the bathroom that they use to clean the kitchen or office space.
Pick Up The Phone
Find a company that is adept at handling emergency situations. When an emergency occurs, who picks up the phone? Is it an actual representative from the company or is it merely an answering service? The janitorial service hired should be able to be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and should be able to dispatch help within minutes or hours, not days. Depending on the business, expedited cleanup could be the difference between keeping work going and losing vast amounts of money.
