The old saying goes: you never have a second chance to make a good first impression. This adage is especially true in business situations where customers will choose whether to patronize a place or not depending on its general appearance and cleanliness. Here are some services to look for when choosing that all-important janitorial service for your office.
-- Entrance, reception area, and foyer cleaning: the entrance and waiting areas of your building or office are arguably the most important areas of all. They must be cleaned on a daily basis in order to maintain a professional appearance.
A janitorial service should make sure that the doors are free of smudges, dirt, and fingerprints; the front windows and glass doors should also be kept shining and fingerprint-free; entryway floors should be swept and mopped and look inviting when people come through the door; carpeted areas should be vacuumed; plants and tables should be dusted on a regular basis.
-- Trash gathering, collection, removal, and recycling: trash is not just unsightly, but it smells too. Even odors from trash that is accumulating in the break room will eventually find its way to public areas if it is not disposed of daily. A service should make sure that trash is not left to build up over a period of days, or even a week.
-- Any office should assume that its restrooms will be visited by customers as well as employees, and the cleanest reception area ever cannot compensate for the bad impression left by a dirty restroom: period.
A good janitorial service should clean and disinfect all toilet bowls on a daily basis. Door knobs, stall hardware, and light fixtures should also be disinfected. Sinks and their accompanying hardware along with countertops should be free from soap spillage and water spots. Towels should be refilled as needed. Of course, extra attention should be given to making sure floors are clean and disinfected.
-- A good janitorial service should provide deep floor cleaning on a regular basis, with machine scrubbers that works effectively on grout in high traffic areas. Hiring professionals to do the job right makes good business sense: the facilities will always look terrific, and owners and employees will be free to do what they do best- care for customers' needs.
A clean office will present a professional appearance to everyone who visits and will give instant credibility to a business, so make sure to choose a janitorial service that will make you look good.
