A Consumer’s Guide for Hiring a Professional Janitorial Provider
Rip Offs/Misconceptions to Look Out For
Monthly pricing verses per visit pricing
We charge per services not per month. The way I see it, why pay for something when service was never completed? Not all months have the same number of days in them, You may be paying for Statutory holiday visits, shut downs, ect. With no service required, but billed for… not very honest business is it?
Low initial pricing
some “companies” will offer you a low monthly price (see above) and try to make it up by, rushing the job, using the cheapest equipment, unsafe products and trying to hire “Joe Blow” off the street at a low rate of pay, this causes mass headaches! Some outfits I have seen will even add massive mark up’s on billing you paper products, matting and other hidden charges and come back to you in 3-6 months pleading for more money, the headache starts all over again.
Don’t assume
Up to 65% of “companies” don’t have insurance / WSIB or do a criminal back ground check on their staff. I would strongly suggest that you ask for paperwork on all of these very common “over sites”. The industry shows that many companies like your have been sued for internal accidents from contracted Janitorial staff, and have lost. (slip and falls rank #1)The average payout per claim was $6500 U.S.!
If you don’t ask….
Like any proud Manager I try to tell the world about the great service I provide, so ask other “companies” to tell you who they service in the area. Get a referral list that you can call and ask them if they are getting great value for the service that’s being provided.
Why we clean…
This may seem like a simple thing, but we clean for two main reasons: Aesthetics and most importantly for health. Having a good looking facility is great, but having yourself a good looking building with very little staff working is a different story. Cleaning with the proper products and superior equipment has proven to reduce employee absenteeism and improving your staffs overall productivity and moral. We use the same products and 3 stage True Hepa filtration Vacuums that you would find in hospitals and in some of the world’s finest hotels.
Who is in your building?
Look out for the Sub-Contractor! Many “companies” will run around an area trying to get janitorial work at the lowest price in town. One thing I have learned in my personal life is “Price is something you pay….Value is what you get for your hard earned money”. I think we have all seen before, many problems arise from lowest-bid companies and I suggest you NEVER hire a “company” that quote the cheapest price. As I listed above, cheap is just that, Cheap. I believe offering an exceptional service and giving a client the best value for their dollar and I put my money where my mouth is….
30 Day Money Back Guarantee
If my company doesn’t meet your expectations in the first 30 days, I will not accept payment from you, but I will shake your hand and thank you for the opportunity, no tricks, scams or fine print. If you’re not happy, we didn’t do our best to earn your business.
Misconception #1
All cleaning products are safe.
Not True. Over 100 chemicals commonly found in homes have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, psychological abnormalities, skin reactions, headaches, depression, joint pain, chronic fatigue, chest pains, dizziness, loss of sleep, asthma… the list goes on. We love our cleaning staff and our clients, and would never put them at risk like that. We have invested a lot of time and money in researching the safest and most effective cleaning products available in our industry. We use the same products that hospitals, food plants, and other facilities that require proper disinfecting practices by using Hydrogen Peroxide based products. The products we use have the same properties as the Hydrogen Peroxide you have in your bathroom for disinfecting a cut or your Childs skinned knee. Safe, non-toxic, consistent.
Misconception #2
All cleaning equipment does the same job.
I wish this was true! (I would have a lot more money) but that wouldn’t service our clients properly and we would have a ton of complaints called to my office. One of the biggest concerns in the office environment is Dust. Dust is not only unsightly, It is also a great carrier of mold, viruses, dead skin cells and other nasty stuff. As with our research into carrying the finest cleaning products, we also have invested lots of time and money in finding the best vacuums on the market (some say we look like “Ghost Busters”). We use a 3 stage True Hepa® filtering backpack units that have superior suction and captures 97.99%of contaminants reducing dust blow back into the office environment (not the type of vacuums you can buy at a C.T. or Zeller’s). Why don’t all “companies” use them? Because they are very expensive, but man does the equipment do a great job for our clients!
Misconception #3
Cleaning is cleaning is cleaning.
A professional in any industry is just that. It is his-her profession, and a professional cleaning company and its staff are no different at all. We live and breathe cleaning day in and day out, we read about it, study it, improve upon it and produce amazing and consistent results by doing our homework. Many other “companies” like the fly by nighters, “Ma Pa”, and part time outfits just don’t have the up to date training, product knowledge and don’t follow a very effective cleaning routine. Human contact point disinfection, low VOC products, flooring knowledge doesn’t “register” with non-professionals, and why should it, because it’s not their profession. Obviously you wouldn’t hire a Doctor to replace the motor in your car?
I hope you found this information helpful and answered some questions you had about trying to find and hire a professional Janitorial company.
