office-cleaningWhy are the cleaning companies, whose work on the market of cleaning services is ten years or more, are preferable to the “newcomers”?

Throughout the years of their work they create a team of specialists, acquire the priceless experience, and most importantly – they gain reputation.

Such a cleaning company knows, and which is most importantly – follows the accepted norms and standards for cleaning at sites that have different specifics – factories, offices, living quarters and stores.

Very often such companies have a supply department that buys cleaning accessories, equipment and cleaning chemicals directly from the manufacturer, which is a huge advantage. Thus, consumables are obtained with a minimum mark-up and cleaning costs, respectively, are also reduced. While those who purchase goods through intermediaries put a much higher price tag to their cleaning services.

Qualified managers in the shortest possible time can calculate the cost of cleaning because they know how many cleaners, floor washing machines, brooms, cleaning agents and even toilet paper in the bathrooms it is necessary to estimate for each object.

A thought may appear, that such companies from the beginning of their existence apply the same cleaning methods. But of course it’s not true; there are classical cleaning technologies that are always effective and relevant.

However, the success of  ”long-playing” cleaning companies is a constant increase of  the skill- level of their cleaners, the application in practice of various market innovations combined with competent personnel management.

With many years of successful practice in this field, Pro Quality Office Cleaning Company can offer you affordable prices and excellent cleaning quality, performed by trained skilled professionals.

5-commercial-cleaningCleaning companies can efficiently and comprehensively solve issues for businesses concerning cleaning the business territory, office cleanliness, maintaining an appropriate level of cleanliness and even the timely management of all sorts of wastes and garbage.

Business structures are the ones who most commonly involve (pay for) services of cleaning companies. It is also worth mentioning that quite often industrial and commercial enterprises after the conclusion of the contract on the usual periodic cleaning, after considering the whole range of possible benefits from such cooperation, move on to more intensive cooperation with a cleaning company. For example, they hire the specialists to prepare the rented premises for holding various business events or corporate entertainment events, followed by cleaning the place of the event.

Cleaning companies are always ready to provide services in quick or deep cleaning of premises, such as cleaning the windows, getting rid of dust, bringing the flooring in a perfect state, keeping bathrooms perfectly clean, etc. And after all representatives of any business understand like no one else, that order and cleanliness can be used to create a good atmosphere in the team and improve working efficiency, and this opportunity should always be used.

Peculiarities of professional cleaning

- deep cleaning of premises, including window cleaning, cleaning of carpets and flooring, wall panels, upholstered furniture;

- cleaning after repair, relocation and construction works, conducting the intermediate cleaning to perform various repair stages;

- cleaning of common areas, such as entrance halls, elevators, underground parking;

- external cleaning of facades and glazing of different types and complexity;

- seasonal cleaning services of the adjacent territory and roofs – snow or leaves removal, washing the sidewalks, breaking the ice;

- cleaning and disinfection of premises, including industrial ones.

Customers can order both, a comprehensive performance of works, and carrying out one-time cleanings. Fast performance of works and their high quality determines the level of a specialized company.

The main advantages of addressing to a cleaning company for cleaning and disinfection of premises are as follows:

- time saving – certain types of work can be quickly and accurately performed only by a specialist, constantly improving his skills in this area. Cleaning company also determines the number of employees who will optimally accomplish the assigned tasks;

- cleaning with using professional equipment and special agents – purchase of cleaning machines and special care products for cleaning surfaces made of various materials, as a rule, is not provided by any family or corporate budget;

- cost saving – the high enough cost of professional cleaning services is still lower than the purchase of expensive equipment, safe detergents and risks to reduce the quality of cleaned premises and equipment;

-reduction of risk of unfair provision of services and preservation of property – addressing to a professional team reduces the likelihood of property damage, poor performance of works or theft of valuable things, than a one-time involvement of individuals to perform such works.

78-professional-office-cleaningProfessional, high-quality and inexpensive office cleaning by a cleaning company is a common phenomenon in a modern world. The cleaning process is more and more frequently entrusted to specialized companies. Well, and it’s needless to say that cleaning should be done regularly.
The principle “It’s clean not where people clean up, but where they don’t litter” allows only increasing the interval between bringing an office in order, but in whatever way there comes a time when you need to take up the dusters and carry out this wearisome process. The list of things required for cleaning the premises, especially for deep cleaning, is quite impressive. You will need mops, brooms, buckets, vacuum cleaner, dustpans, sponges and all sorts of cleaning agents.

One of the principal and seemingly inconspicuous problems is dust. It can adversely affect the health of your employees, who breathe it, and some can become allergic to it. For dust control you will need special wet and dry wipes, which should always be in excess. It is also desirable to have antibacterial sprays in stock for more qualitative cleaning of surfaces.

One of the extremely important points is also a proper cleaning of expensive office equipment by applying special suitable means, in order not to damage it and not to lose the information stored on the computers. Therewith, a regular cleanup of the equipment will extend its life. Office cleaning isn’t finished with this, to be more precise – it’s only the first stage of a long and hard work.

Before you start to wash the floors, windows and walls, you need to use a vacuum cleaner. Dry cleaning always precedes the wet cleaning.
Thus, cleaning assumes the possession of various expert skills. To perform this process with a high quality you will need to:

·    know the cleaning procedure;
·    know the types and application of various cleaning agents;
·    cleanup the office equipment carefully but thoroughly in order not to damage it.
In addition you need to possess certain skills to do it quickly and efficiently.

Personnel recruitment for cleaning

Well, you provided yourself with everything required for regular professional cleaning of the office premises in the company. But who will do it? Certainly not office workers. And it is impractical to organize your own cleaning department. Hence there comes a time to search for a cleaning lady who will thoroughly carry out her work. This is also quite a difficult problem, and the search for a reliable employee may drag on. And if you apply to a specialized recruitment agencies for personnel selection, you will have to pay them quite a large amount.

The cleaning lady that you find will come to the office at regular time intervals and will establish order and cleanliness while all the staff members are busy with their work. In order not to distract the manager she can ignore cleaning the workplace and the space around it. It’s obvious that with such a superficial way of cleaning the carpets and decorative components gradually fade, monitors become dull, a thick layer of dust forms in hard to reach places… Eventually even a cosmetic repair may be needed.

But the cleanliness of the office determines the reputation of the company. Clients, visiting your company, usually pay a close attention to the cleanliness and tidiness of the office.

It’s never too late to think about how to maintain the cleanliness of the office. Easier not to puzzle over this question but to entrust the deep office cleaning to the team, specially prepared for this, and the price of such service will be reasonable. Especially that the professionals will have with themselves everything required for a high-quality work. You may conclude a contract for cleaning with varying frequency – from once a day up to once a month (and less often). A good practice is also to do a deep cleaning once per couple of months or more often.

The benefits of cleaning done by specialists are obvious:

·    it takes minimum time;
·    its quality is much higher than if it were done by yourself;
·    it is carried out by a professionally trained staff, who will use the cleaning agents exactly as intended, so you need not be afraid for a damaged table, computer or any other valuable item you have in the office;
·    the price of premises cleaning is not too high, and you will be able to return to the working rhythm in maximum short terms.
