When taking bids for cleaning it is always best to consider the following before making a decision:
How long has the business been in business?
An established business shows that the proprietors aren’t “fly by night”. In other words, they have established a base of customers that keep their business going allowing them to stay in business. If a business is relatively new and has little history it is difficult to judge whether or not they will be in existence in the future.
How competitive is their pricing?
It is usually not the best idea to deal with the lowest bidder because this is usually indicative or someone who will bid low just to win your business. A good rule of thumb -cheap commercial cleaning entails shortcuts and misses, it’s sloppy. Equally, you should be cautious of companies whose prices are too high, as these will be more difficult to budget for.
What other products can they provide?
Many cleaning services also offer sales of consumables. Items such as can liners, soap and paper towels. If you are purchasing these on your own, a cleaning service that buys products like these in bulk can beat your pricing and take this responsibility off your hands. A win-win when you consider cost savings, less worries and an increase in your ability to do your job.
What other services can they provide?
If you want to have your carpet cleaned, you hire a carpet cleaning company. If you want to have your floor stripped and refinished you hire a floor maintenance company. If you want your windows cleaned hire a window cleaning company. Right? Wrong. Ask the companies that you want to do business with, what special services they provide.
