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.

Five qualities to look for in a medical cleaning team

Health care facilities often face the challenge of finding a top quality janitorial team. Cleanliness directly impacts the safety of patients and employees as well as the reputation of your practice. It is critical that your medical cleaning team has these five qualities to properly and effectively clean your health environment.

1. Knowledge

A medical cleaning team should be fully knowledgeable about cleaning health facilities as well as standards set by HIPAA. Cleaning staff should understand how to safely handle contaminants, effectively sanitize and the sources of infection and cross contamination.

2. Consistency in quality

Consistency is paramount, as medical facilities rely on cleanliness to ward off staphylococcus, MRSA and other dangerous viruses. Your janitorial team should be using cleaning practices that exceed terminal cleaning standards and regulations.

3. Attention to detail

Your medical cleaning team must pay attention to every detail and monitor the environment continuously with regular inspections. High touch areas as well as floors should be cleaned meticulously to control infection.

4. Training and experience

Make sure that your cleaners have health-specific training, specialized gear and the proper equipment. They should have experience in chemical handling and controlling bloodborne pathogens while keeping confidential documents secure.

5. Certified Products

Your cleaners should use certified cleaning products appropriate for medical facility cleaning. These products should have maximum results to disinfect, sanitize and deodorize your health environment.
