When the pandemic is on its way out, do you take a look back at your office and get back to work? Or are you starting a new company? Or have you moved? Does it seem like your work area needs a thorough cleaning? You are not alone. Many companies face this problem when they first move to a physical office. When you return to work, you will see supplies in tatters, paperwork, and dust and cobwebs all over the place. It might be time to hire a commercial cleaning company to take the burden off your hands. In this article, we're going to share some tips and tricks you should know before hiring a commercial cleaning company for your office.

Do you really need a cleaning company?

It can be easy to get the idea that you need a commercial cleaning company right now. However, this may not always be the case. If it's all about small things like cleaning desks and tidying up papers, then by being mindful and disciplined, you can accomplish this. For jobs like thoroughly cleaning all of the office space, including floors, desks, washrooms, and disinfecting everything to stay on the safe side, we recommend having cleaning professionals do the cleaning. If it's an intense job that requires more precision and advanced skills, it's better to leave it to the professionals. But if it's small chores, you can do it yourself and ask other employees to clean up after themselves. If you have a relatively small office space, it might be enough to hire one person to do the cleaning. Commercial cleaning is better suited to large and crowded office spaces.

What cleaning services do you need?

Now that you've decided whether or not you need housekeeping, it's time to narrow down your needs. Take a look around your office and make note of which services you need most. Recently, for example, the disinfection of all commonly used surfaces has become a critical need. So this is a service that you should definitely request. Other such services may include exterior cleaning, window cleaning, thorough cleaning of washrooms and common areas, carpet cleaning, and surface disinfection. These are all services that you can hire professional cleaners to do. Just because some services are available doesn't mean you will need all of them. You should only invest in services that really increase the productivity and quality of the workspaces for your company. Depending on where you live and how messy your home gets on a daily basis, you'll need to modify and improvise your own list of services you need. Eliminate everything you can do yourself to cut additional costs. You can get professional cleaning supplies and use them well.

What to look for in a commercial cleaning company

Now that you've gone through the list of cleaning and disinfection services that you want to hire professionals for, you need to turn your attention to hiring the right company for the job. There are many cleaning companies out there and it is up to you to choose the right one that can achieve the level of hygiene and cleanliness your office deserves. So, to get the final cut, you need to do a lot of research. To make your job easier, there are a few properties that you should check before signing the contract with a commercial cleaning company.


Reviews are a great resource for learning more about the quality of the work a company is offering. Every company claims to be the best, and so they try. But some just don't make the cut. To understand which companies are breaking their promises, you need to go through customer reviews. That is why reviews are important. Pay attention to the details in each review to avoid generic reviews. Some companies pay social media companies to write instead of real customers. Pay attention to both the positive and negative reviews. Of course, keep in mind that an exceptionally negative reviewer is likely to be less objective as it comes from a sense of disappointment and frustration. Feel free to reach out to customers who are similar in size and scope to your organization. Ask them directly about their experience with a company that you are seriously considering. After reading these reviews, evaluate which apply to your situation, then narrow down your list of cleaning companies.


Management is the key. When a whole team of cleaners takes over your office at the same time, the management of the cleaning company becomes the binding agent for the entire company. If they are not well organized, delays and unwanted mishaps occur. Make sure you choose a company that prides itself on, and is best known for, their cleaning management systems. In addition to managing the cleaners in the field, you also need to clarify how they handle their cleaning schedule along with your office hours.

Skilled workers

Do we need to say more? The only reason you would even consider hiring a professional company for such a cleaning job is because of their skills and experience. If the employees are not competent and quick on their feet, this is inevitably your loss. Before deciding on a particular cleaning company, find out about the skills and experience of the employees. You can ask friends and co-workers who may have experience with the company of your choice to discuss specific concerns and questions.


For offices, especially creative ones, flexibility is a must. Your cleaning company needs to be ready to accommodate you according to your office schedule. If your office hours depend on the cleaning team and not the other way around, this would be very counterproductive for you in the long run. Therefore, first discuss with the company how much flexibility it can offer. You have to rely on your cleaning company to really be relieved of these cleaning chores and to be more productive. If you keep thinking about what to do while cleaning, you will never get any of your actual work done. For this reason, we recommend hiring companies that are on time and good value for money. For the amount you pay, make sure you get enough value.
