Using a contractor for green commercial office cleaning in Virginia Beach, VA is one of the best ways to ensure a clean, healthy environment. But unfortunately, certain factors can hinder the quality of service — and not necessarily because the cleaning contractor doesn’t meet your expectations.
Janitorial companies provide a variety of cleaning services, such as trash removal, dusting, mopping, vacuuming and disinfecting. And while they promise to complete work to satisfaction, these companies aren’t miracle workers. For that matter, your habits and the way you leave the office after hours can impact the quality of service.
There are, however, ways to overcome this issue. Here are three ways to ensure the best service when hiring a company for janitorial cleaning in Virginia Beach, VA.
#1. Ask your employees to remove excess items from their desks — and set the example
Obviously, you don’t have to remove every single item from your desk. However, if you clear the majority of lose items from your desk (picture frames, folders, paper, etc.) and place these in your desk chair or in a single pile on your desk, your contractor can provide a thorough cleaning.
#2. Maintain a stock of paper supplies
If your agreement with the company says that you’ll provide all paper products, such as toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags, it’s important that you keep your end of the bargain. If not, your cleaning contractor will not be able to fill your dispensers as needed. To eliminate this headache, ask your contractor to provide these products — for an additional fee, of course.
#3. Don’t lock office doors
If you want the cleaning company to dust, vacuum and remove trash from personal offices, remember to keep doors unlocked, or provide a key. Unfortunately, if personal offices aren’t accessible to the janitorial staff, this space will not be cleaned until the next scheduled service day.
