Best Practices for Janitorial Services

You might be curious as to what “best practices” means. Basically, it’s the ideal technique to perform a particular task. The technique becomes the benchmark because its results are superior. This is applicable when it comes to cleaning standards, because there are often cleaning standards to meet, like ISO level 1. So in this post we’ll take a closer look at “best practices” for janitorial services.

1.Systematic Processes

It’s important to provide consistent, professional, and meticulous service every single time. Each process is documented so that staff can follow each process accordingly. Inspections ensure that services are being done correctly and using the correct products and equipment.&

2.Excellent Staff

We want to make sure that any employee sent to a job site can deliver a service that meets our quality requirements, so we meticulously screen and train all new hires. Management of our employees is also important so that services are done . Some commercial cleaners, like JoncoWest, also offer specialized cleaning services. If you require specific services, ask what these entail and how employees are trained.

3. Choose a Reputable Company with Favorable Reviews

You want a janitorial service that quickly responds to communication–whether it’s a question or an issue. Our business was created in 1969 and we’re a minority and female-owned business. We have spent decades becoming specialists, learning the intricate workings of an industry that continues to grow and thrive in the age of technology. We have seen within the years that commercial cleaning standards and industry thresholds have only grown to match sheer excellence. And only a true understanding of this industry will promote long-term customer satisfaction.

4. Clear Pricing

Every business is unique, and the same goes for any janitorial and commercial cleaning needs. The pricing info you receive from the company should list detailed information about the services and pricing of each service. Having a better understanding of your janitorial services allows both you and the cleaning service to be on the same page.

Tips for Hiring Day Porter Services

You might be curious what Day Porter Services include. Generally, Day Porter services work well for facilities that have all day, on-site staff. Day Porters ensure your facility is clean and presentable to everyone at your place of business during business hours (staff, tenants, visitors). You can learn more specifics about this type of service here. We’ve compiled some tips in order to hire the best day porter service company for your facility.

Get Quotes from Different Companies

While it’s nice to save money, hiring the cheapest contractor is not always the best idea. When you get quotes from different companies, in addition to getting a quote for the cost, have the quote include the services that are covered and any products, equipment, etc. that are included. Complete quotes allow you to better compare different companies.

Ask about the Company Background

As you compare companies, it’s important to ask about their background. It’s especially important to determine how long the company has been in business. Some cleaning companies come and go, so you want one with a solid reputation who has been in business for a long time. As an example, Joncowest has been in business since 1969.

Gather References

Closely related to researching the company’s background is getting company references. Ask the company for references that you can contact. Research reviews of the company to see how their clients feel about the company’s services.

Is the Work Guaranteed?

Most company’s say that their day porter services work is guaranteed, but it’s important to find out exactly what that means. It’s important to get everything in writing as well. If a service isn’t satisfactory, do they return to complete the service or is there a money-back guarantee.

See if the Company is Insured, Bonded and Licensed

It’s your job to protect your business and your property. As with anyone who comes to your facility to perform a service, it’s important to make sure the day porter company is bonded and insured. It’s also important that the company has licensed employees who are well trained.
