If you have made the important decision to hire a professional Woodland Hills office cleaning company to keep your office clean, then you already know how important it is to keep your space clean and germ-free for clients, employees and guests.  Where you conduct your business on a day-to-day basis can say a lot about you.  When you’ve got a space that is free from overflowing garbage cans and food odors, dust and dirt, your clients will take notice.  Your business should be fresh, clean and odor free each and every day that it is open for business.  That’s why it’s important to make sure you are asking the right questions before choosing an office cleaning company for your business.

One of the most important questions you can ask is for a complete list of what cleaning jobs are available and what is included in the more basic cleaning packages.  This will give you a good idea of what the “bare minimum” is for a cleaning, and will also tell you what level of service they can provide.  Some companies may advertise “commercial cleaning”, but then only offer basic services like vacuuming and emptying the trash.  A good office cleaning will place a heavier focus on making things sanitary and on deep cleaning of public areas.

It’s also helpful to ask a potential office cleaning company how long they have been in business and if they have any client testimonials online that you can review.  While there is nothing wrong with a brand new company, it can be difficult to determine if they are a good fit for you if it’s the first cleaning company you’ve ever worked with.  Since cleaning is a business expense, it’s shouldn’t be taken lightly, so take the time to read some online reviews, and steer clear of businesses that refuse to provide a reference.

Finally, ask about the company’s insurance coverage and what their policy is if something becomes damaged or is broken during the course of a leaning.  You can definitely save a few bucks with a company that doesn’t have insurance, but you are taking a big risk that you could end up paying for down the road.  As the customer, you always have the right to verify insurance coverage and to review the policy to make sure it works for you.
