Written by Posted On Friday, 10 November 2017 10:24

Maintaining a clean environment is very essential to the well being of its occupants. Be it a private residence or an office environment, a reliable janitor will put things into place to enable the smooth running of its daily activities.

However, it's important to research properly about the janitorial cleaning service you're about to hire as most times, they haven't gone through any training at all.

Here are 5 tips to consider to help you make the right choice.

1. Ask friends and family

If you're looking to find a reliable janitorial cleaning service, ask your friends and family members.

They must have added one in the past and would recommend you reach out to them.

You know they'll tell you just as it is about their mode of operation, whether the janitorial service is unorganised, unprofessional, messy or reliable, you'll hear everything.

With this you'll be able to figure out if they're really worth it, or maybe you should keep walking.

2. Experience

To find a reliable janitorial service, you have to consider the number of years they have been operating as a company.

To find a janitorial cleaning service is no problem at all – there are lots of them out there looking to get a cleaning contract. However, you know you're looking for quality so you have to consider a well established company, a reputable one, and those that are qualified to clean the type of buildings you own – whether commercial, industrial or institutional.

3. Online search

Gone are the days when you have to rely only on word of mouth, TV adverts or billboards, just to get to know about a particular company.

The internet has made everything easier. A quick search for "janitorial cleaning services" will give you more than enough options.

However, it's not enough to just go with anyone you picked off the internet. Read online reviews. See what people that have worked with them in the past are saying about them.

If you do your online research right, you'll find the perfect janitor for you.

4. Check for certifications and standards

While choosing your ideal janitor, check that they’re professional enough for the job. Certifications are good pointers to professionalism. Also check if they're fully bonded and insured.

All these will put you in a safer place and keep you from taking care of damages they cause.

5. Green cleaning

Most people just want their environment cleaned out without necessarily caring about where the disposals go to.

However, if you're part of the minority who believe that cleaning systems affect the quality of life, then you'll understand how essential it is for your cleaning services to practice green cleaning. This starts by using eco-conscious materials – products that meet the standard health and safety criteria, equipment that reduce noise pollution, etc.

This slows down the deterioration of the environment and reduces the risk of humans being exposed to harmful cleaning solutions.

With these five tips, you should have no problems finding the janitor of your dreams – reliable, efficient and also environmentally conscious at the same time.
