In general, a commercial cleaning company wants to help keep your office healthy, safe, and professional, and they know that treating you fairly creates a win-win relationship. However, some companies are just out to make a dollar, and they're not above charging way too much. Here's how to make sure you're working with an honest, reliable company and getting a fair quote!

Cost Considerations

Commercial cleaning services have different costs depending on how your workplace is set up. For example, a large office with a lot of large windows would be more expensive to clean than a small, simple office with just a few rooms. Of course, a fair cleaning company will take all of these things into consideration and mention them all when explaining your quote. An unfair or dishonest one will try to convince you not to ask any questions or do any research.

To make sure you're getting an honest, realistic quote, look for these important considerations in your workplace!

Size of your space

The most important consideration is the size of the office itself. Remember, a big workplace requires more supplies and workers to clean properly.

Time it takes to clean

How long will it take to clean your workplace from top to bottom, and to do it all right? This plays a big role in determining your quote.

Specific tasks required

The number of windows, kitchens, and other cleaning tasks--for example, taking out the trash or refilling paper towel rolls--will alter your total quote. Some of these things can be negotiated or taken out of the agreement completely, so make sure to ask questions.

Details related to your office

Sometimes there are additional factors, unrelated toy our office itself, that impact the overall quote. The cost of living in your area, the rates other cleaning companies are charging, and the inclusion of cleaning supplies (which you might be able to provide) all play into your quote.
