NEGOSENTRO.COM | What Does It Really Cost to Give Your Business Premises a Thorough Clean? | Running your own office can be troublesome, having to keep everything in check. It gets even more problematic when it comes to maintaining the office itself, as there are a lot of costs associated with the process. The majority of business owners, when first starting out, don’t have any idea how much it costs to keep offices clean. This becomes a bigger problem when they don’t know what a good price is for these services, so they end up paying more out of pocket. So what do cleaning services take into account when cleaning office space?
Size of the Space
One of the primary factors that go into pricing office space to be cleaned is how big it is. Large offices naturally cost more than smaller offices because there is more floor area to clean. So when looking at skip hire prices, it’s a good idea to look at what they charge per hour or per square feet. This can give you a good idea as to which prices are more competitive than others.
The price will go up if you require certain areas to be cleaned as well, such as bathrooms or windows, or for paper products to be restocked.
Look at when you want the office to be cleaned. If you hire a cleaning staff during office hours, it’s going to take a lot longer as your staff and the cleaning crew is going to be in each other’s ways so that the work takes a lot longer. But you want everyone to be happy. If you schedule cleaning after hours, you may get a different price since cleaning time will be more efficient and they won’t have people in their way.
Frequency of Service
Do you need regular cleaning service or is this just a one-time deal? Scheduling a cleaning service on a regular basis may result in cheaper, discounted prices because they know that you’re a guaranteed customer. Hiring a service for just one cleaning can end up being more pricy since there’s no guarantee that you’re going to be a customer of theirs in the future. This all depends on your needs, however.
The State of the Office Space
If you just need the carpets to be swept and vacuumed, then you’ll pay a lot less than if you have stains that need to be removed or if you need a steam cleaning. The filthier your office space is, the more you’re going to need to pay to get the place looking clean again. This is because the cleaning service will have to use a lot of cleaning products to get everything spic and span again.
Quality of Service
Don’t automatically go for the most expensive cleaning service you find, believing that they’re going to be the best at what they do. They may be using inferior cleaning products and/or not do a thorough job of cleaning so that they can make bigger profits. The best way to find a decent cleaning company is to look at reviews and feedback to see which service companies are the most trusted.
Finding a reputable company that can clean your office space properly doesn’t have to be difficult. It just takes a bit of patience and research so you can find the right provider for you.
