If you are a building owner and you have a leasing business, or perhaps you are a business owner and you have your own office building, one of the things that you are probably thinking about is cleaning your office or building. You’ve probably already explored the possibility of hiring commercial cleaners; however, you will find that you need to retain a cleaning contract.
What is a Commercial Cleaning Contract?
Simply, it is a contract that will tell you what the cleaning company is willing to do for you. It will have information about the type of cleaning to be done, frequency of cleaning as well as the standard cleaning services they offer.
#1 Searching for Options
There are various commercial cleaning companies in London, that offer different services for customers. Therefore, the first step you need to take is to find a suitable company. Researching the many companies near you on Google should be a good idea for a start.
#2 Track Record
Reviews from customers are very important. You can also look for retention from their customers. If you see that they have clients that have been with them for a while, then this implies that they are a good company to work with and their services are excellent.
#3 Invitation to Bid
To go about looking for a cleaning contract, you may also invite companies to bid. They will submit their proposals to you and you can look through the services they are offering at different prices. Of course, you will have to prepare good documentation about your premises such as the location, size of the building or office and give them an overview about what you need as well.
Getting proposals, while it may be easier, can also be a difficult task as you have to look through each and every service from the different companies. However, if you find a good match, then it will be beneficial for you. Doing this will also give you an idea of the standard terms given by companies in your area.
#4 Right to Cure
Once you find a good company to work with, you should also look for a ‘right to cure’ in the contract. This is usually a part of any cleaning contract. Basically, this clause will have something to do with you not being satisfied with the services of the company and whether you have the right to ask them to redo their service or bill them. You also have the right to cut the contract if they continue to give you bad service, without any penalties.
Therefore, before settling with any cleaning company service, make sure that you shop around to find the best match for your business.
