Industrial and commercial cleaning is an important part of keeping workplaces clean, hygienic and safe for both staff and customers. It is for this reason that choosing a cleaning company that ticks all the boxes and carries out a high quality service is absolutely vital. The last thing you want is to hire the services of a company, only to find out further down the line that they lack the experience, use outdated equipment, and can’t carry out their work as promised.
It’s also important to consider that cleaning companies are all different, and many may offer a unique set of services depending on their niche. Whilst one company may have the perfect set of skills for cleaning properties for example, they might lack the specialist skills required to clean an industrial or commercial workplace.
But how do you find the right cleaning company for you and your needs? This blog aims to shine a light on what to look for when selecting a company with the cleaning services that match the challenges you face. Whether it’s online reviews, checking for the right qualifications, or even just inquiring about the equipment they use, here’s some of our tips to help simplify the decision process.
At LCS, we specialise in industrial and commercial cleaning, whether that be industrial workplaces, schools or commercial environments. With our team of fully qualified staff we’re able to provide the highest quality cleaning services that are completely customised to your individual needs.
How to Choose The Right Cleaning Company
The best way to check if a company is right for you is to read the reviews from past customers. This could be on their company website, on Google, or on review websites such as Trust Pilot. Reviews paint a detailed picture of a company and enable you to gauge whether a cleaning company is viewed positively or negatively.
It’s important to say that reviews are dependent on the reviewer, so don’t be put off if there is only one negative review amidst a lot of positive ones. It’s always best to look for patterns if possible to see what a cleaning company is consistently getting wrong.
Do They Have the Right Experience?
Experience is important if you are to find a cleaning company you can trust. It’s important to hire a company that knows exactly what they’re doing, with the proper skills and practises to make sure they are doing the best possible job. Companies that are proud of their work usually like to shout about it, be it through content on their website, video content or case studies.
At LCS, we’re proud to show that we’ve worked with global companies such as Arnold Clark, Wickes and Travis Perkins. We’re also proud to include a ‘what our customers say’ section on our website, to show that we’ve got the relevant skills and experience to provide high quality cleaning services to our customers.
Check the Equipment
The condition of the cleaning equipment is often a good indicator of the quality of service you can expect from a cleaning company. If a company uses equipment that looks unprofessional, ageing, or generally just below standard, they’re probably not right for you. Modern, high quality cleaning equipment will give you the best standard of service.
Customise your Cleaning Service
All industrial and commercial environments are different, and what works for one isn’t necessarily what works for another. It’s important that a cleaning company understands this in order to provide the best service possible. Make sure to discuss the options that are available to you and work together to form a cleaning strategy that works for you, your workplace and your budget.
Qualifications and Memberships
The standard of a cleaning company is only as good as the quality of its staff. Exceptional service comes when you recruit the best and train your staff to a high standard. At LCS, all of our cleaners receive full BICS (British Institute of Cleaning Science) and receive regular supervision and feedback to ensure the best possible service to our customers.
You should also look for memberships or approvals from bodies within the cleaning industry. For example, we show that we are SafeContractor approved to guarantee our high standard of health and safety, as well as being a member of the NACSC (National Academy of Crime Scene Cleaners) to show our unique skill set.
