What To Look For When Hiring A Janitorial Team

Keep reading to learn what qualities to look for when hiring a company for janitorial work, and how our team always meets the mark.
We always recommend that our prospective customers hire a local company that offers multiple services. Every office requires general cleaning services, but there are many differences between each office. For example, many offices have carpet floors, but your office may have terrazzo flooring, which demands terrazzo polishing in Fort Lauderdale. It’s important to look for a company that offers the following services, but also make sure they have the skillset to meet your specific needs.
- Garbage Removal
- Floor Cleaning
- Bathroom Cleaning
- Paper Supplies Replacement
- Carpet Cleaning
- Deep Cleaning and Stain Removal
- Sweeping and Mopping
This list is not comprehensive, but it does provide a general idea of what to look for. At DeLeon, we provide a full suite of cleaning services with 24/7 availability throughout Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Boca Raton, and all across South Florida. We have worked in many commercial spaces, including banks, hotels, and universities. It is this level of experience that puts us ahead of our competition.
As with any company you hire, it’s important to ask for references from their previous customers. In general, if the cleaning service cannot provide you with at least three references in the last six months, you may want to look elsewhere. Many janitorial services are provided after hours when everyone has gone home. As a result, you will not be there to supervise them and ensure they are doing the work you paid for and not cutting corners. When you hire a well-established company with qualified, trustworthy employees who get the job done, you have nothing to worry about.
We know how important it is to hire a team you can trust. We perform complete and thorough background checks on all our employees, and we make sure they are bonded, licensed, and insured.
To build off the previous point, a company is only as strong as its employees. As a result, you should always ask companies about their hiring process. Some key questions to ask are:
- Do you screen employees with background checks before hiring them?
- Once onboard, do your employees receive continuous training in ethics, etiquette, safety, and quality?
- What cleaning duties are your employees more accustomed to doing?
- If one of your employees was violating a rule, how would you handle that?
Companies should have well-detailed responses so you know that their hiring protocols, continuous training, and employee expectations are high.
The general services that were previously mentioned are important when hiring a company, but it is worth repeating that specific experience is also crucial. If you hire a company to clean your commercial office space and they only have experience cleaning homes, there is a learning curve they will have to maneuver. Companies with less experience may end up saving you money upfront, but in the long run, they often sacrifice quality which can hurt your business. Let’s not forget how much easier your job will be when you hire a company with turn-key solutions and years of experience, such as the team at DeLeon Restoration and Cleaning.
