Benefits of Hiring a Local Cleaning Company
If you work in a commercial facility such as an office building, chances are, there’s a cleaning company coming in after hours to pick up trash, clean the bathrooms, and vacuum all the carpets. However, the type of cleaning company you hire could make or break the experience.
If you look up cleaning companies online, the first results that pop up will most likely be franchises. But, if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find a few local cleaning companies, such as ourselves, AJ Services.
There are many benefits to both franchise and local cleaning companies, however, we are going to focus on the latter. Franchises are big, messy, and careless. Local cleaning companies are reliable, attentive, and acquainted with what their customers desire.
Hiring a local cleaning company means you have a better relationship and better communication between management and supervisors/staff who cleans your facility. If there is a complaint, it is much easier and faster to get ahold of someone that will fix the problem within a local company. A franchise has managers upon managers that may be hard to connect when you need them the most to take responsibility.
A local cleaning company has probably started from the bottom, meaning the owner or people in the management department have experience in cleaning all sorts of facilities themselves. This makes it much easier communicating errors about services performed because the people receiving complaints are familiar with the issues coming their way. However, franchises hire people (selling them a business) who not necessarily have experience they need in the cleaning business, so they cannot relate on the same level.
Also, with a local company it is easier to request extra services such as carpet cleaning, or floor stripping and waxing simply by sending an email with the request to the owner of the company.
Local cleaning companies have the advantage of preparing a scope of work that is unique to every single customer they provide services for. While franchise cleaning companies provide a cookie cutter scope of work, local cleaning companies take the time to go over the facility with the customer and provide a detailed and satisfying scope of work based on customer’s needs.
Usually, local cleaning companies can be contacted on a 24/7, 365 days a week basis. For example, in the event of an emergency, such as a flooding, etc. a local cleaning company can be there to clean the mess up within hours. However, a franchise provides employees with time off, sick leave, a nine to five work day, which means they may not always be easy to contact, and your facility may be left flooded much longer than if a local cleaning company was hired in the first place.
