There is a common misconception out there that a cleaner does the same thing regardless of the type of premises they are cleaning or what
the business does. But this simply isn’t the case. And unfortunately, this leads to many costly and potentially dangerous errors when hiring
Every location has its own set of specific requirements, and the cleaning company you hire must understand this.
For instance, a gym will have significantly different requirements than an RSL due to traffic levels, weather, interior materials etc. While that might seem obvious to you, many cleaning companies don’t take the time to customise their clean to the business, and many businesses don’t realise that this is something that needs to be done. Understandably, they just assume hiring a cleaning company means things will be “clean”.
That’s not to say there are zero similarities between the needs of businesses.
Through our years of experience, we have developed a great template of foundational tasks that we always recommend to be completed, regardless of industry type or location.
These tasks ensure that no matter who you’re serving, your team, your clients or both; you’re providing a clean, safe environment.
These tasks are room specific and include:
Most businesses will have an entrance area, whether it’s a waiting room, reception area or just a transitionary space, first impressions matter.
These are the non-negotiables! Areas where you definitely require regular in-depth cleaning. Due to these spaces being both high traffic and high risk, neglecting these locations is not an option.
These are the tasks that need to be done, just not every single clean. It’s extremely important to have them written down though and planned for so that they do not end up neglected and slipping through the cracks.
There are just a few of the many different items that need to be addressed by your commercial cleaners.
Many commercial cleaners don’t include residential cleaning within their services. It doesn’t mean that residential cleaning is any less, far from it. But what it shows is that residential cleaning requires a whole different skill set as the needs and requirements someone has from their home are very different to a business.
It also often requires a slightly different administration and management approach for cleaning companies. For example, you might not care if your home cleaner is Cm3 certified, but when it comes to protecting your business, this is a must.
Researching a local, trusted (and insured) contractor that specialises in residential cleaning will always be our best recommendation.
At Clean Feeling, protecting your staff and premises is our top priority.
During each site visit, we get a feel for the size and scope of cleaning required for your location. We'll put together a simple but thorough Scope of Work and Proposal to include all regular and periodical cleaning tasks. This is yours to keep for free.
Our teams not only clean but will keep you updated with any maintenance tasks they come across. Supervisors and Quality Assurance officers rotate through all of our client locations to spot check both quality and the scope.
