How to choose the right commercial cleaning company for you
Keeping the exterior of your commercial premises clean is an ongoing job – wear and tear and the weather makes sure of that! As a result, it’s important you find a cleaning company you can rely on. With ongoing work to do, you don’t want the hassle of looking for a different supplier each some time work needs completing. Your time is precious and you have plenty of other pressing priorities to take care of. Instead, you want to find a reliable, well-priced company that you can depend on to take care of everything.
Let’s be honest, there are a lot of cleaning jobs to get done. Whether it’s cleaning windows, removing oil stains from the car park, or cleaning up your walkways and paths, there’s always something that needs some TLC.
So to help you find the best cleaning partner for you, we recommend these five areas. Get this right, and you’ll never have to worry about cleaning up again.
1. The right equipment
External cleaning is always heavy duty. When you’re cleaning surfaces that are exposed to the elements, you need industrial strength equipment to do a job well and in an appropriate amount of time.
Look for a company that invests in cutting-edge equipment that’s suitable for the job at hand. For example, if you want your roof or higher story windows cleaned, ask if the cleaning company has a cherry picker. This piece of equipment creates a safe working platform for staff ensuring you get a much better finish.
Also enquire about the pressure wash system used. Make sure it’s industrial grade and ensure it’s suitable for attacking the hard working surfaces you need cleaned.
Our team use a revolutionary industrial pressure rotary cleaning system that’s specifically designed for deep cleaning on high traffic, exterior surfaces. This type of equipment effectively removes unsightly stains including tyre marks, most oil stains, weeds/mosses and slippery algae.
2. Environmentally considerate
With the right equipment, it’s possible to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning on the environment.
For example, a hot pressure wash uses less water and can often get the job done without the need for chemicals. That’s because a hot wash can dissolve dirt and grime quicker and more effectively than cold water and elbow grease.
And if you do have a cleaning job that is unsuitable for the pressure applied during a hot wash, check what chemicals will be used with the soft wash system. With the right know-how and equipment, it’s possible to get the job done with gentle chemicals that are kinder to the environment.
Here at Alpha, we take our environmental impact seriously – minimizing our impact wherever possible.
Is the company as good as they say they are?
It’s worth taking some time to explore past work carried out by any short-listed cleaning companies. You can do this in two ways.
Firstly, ask for testimonials from jobs similar to yours.
Secondly, ask to see before and after photos so you can see for yourself the quality of the work carried out.
Here’s a selection from our portfolio.
Commercial cleaning takes diligence, pride in the work, and a commitment to get the job done to the highest standard possible.
Demotivated staff are likely to cut corners, take longer than necessary, and do a poor job. In comparison, motivated staff will bring a smile to the job and work diligently to deliver the results you expect.
We hire staff based on their skill and their attitude.
We appreciate an external cleaning job means extra people and equipment on site. Even though you need the job doing, it can still be an inconvenience. Our staff are mindful that they’re working in your space. It’s why they’re considerate about the way they work and are conscious about the impact their presence has.
In other words, we do whatever we can to make it easy for you.
5. A family company
Look for a company that takes pride in its work and is passionate about building a positive reputation. A family-run business is often a good choice because of the values that infuse through the business. When a family’s name is on the line, it’s not unusual for them to go above and beyond.
That’s certainly our attitude at Alpha.
