Why you should be cautious about a “low ball” cleaning bid.

It has been said that, “you get what you pay for.”  That is certainly true in commercial cleaning. Cleaning bids are calculated on the time it will take a cleaner to perform all the tasks requested.  There is a definite connection between time spent and quality.  Most cleaning starts off great and then quality starts to decline.  There is usually a strong correlation to time spent at the site.  What you want to avoid is a bid that only allows time for a “trash and dash” approach to cleaning, no matter what tasks are on your checklist.

Here are three questions to ask “Low Ball” bidders:

  • How much time have you budgeted per cleaning visit?
  • How did you determine that time?
  • How will you stick to the time you have estimated?

At Executive Cleaning Services, we have systems and guarantees in place to ensure you get a quality cleaning.  We monitor hours on all of our accounts to confirm that the cleaner is there for the right amount of time.  Our quality guarantee means you don’t pay for services that have not been performed.  We have systems and guarantees in place to ensure you get what you are paying for.

3 Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring a Janitorial Company to Clean Your Office

Business owners need to do their homework when hiring a company to provide janitorial services to the building. We have all heard of housekeepers or handymen ripping someone off, or doing a lousy job. Business owners are at risk of experiencing the same strife, unless they carefully look at the credentials of the company offering janitorial services. In many businesses, those entrusted to take care of cleaning have access to merchandise, supplies, or even petty cash found in offices. Without asking the right questions, a company that is supposed to help you can quickly become a major problem. At Executive Cleaning Services we encourage business owners to ask the following questions when selecting a company to clean.

1. How long have you been in business? Because janitorial supplies are relatively inexpensive, some “wantrepreneurs” purchase some rags, window cleaner and disinfectant and begin offering services to business owners. More often than not, these businesses flop quickly because the owners fail to consider the importance of proper training before offering these specialized services.

2. What types of clients do you have? This question will help determine if the provider has experience in providing janitorial services to offices like yours. If your office is highly specialized and you have equipment that needs dusting or perhaps polishing, it’s best to ensure the janitorial company has experience in serving others like you.

3. What services do you provide? If the answer to this question is “we clean everything,” take warning. It’s best when janitorial companies can tell you exactly what they do and how they do it. Be leery of people who give vague answers, or who promise the world without giving any specifics.

At Executive Cleaning Services we are owner-operated, meaning that our clients do not have to worry about unsavory characters reporting to their office to clean and potentially steal or perform unsatisfactory work. We are committed to providing comprehensive janitorial services to clients across Lane County.
