If you are like most people looking for any type of service, your first resource will be family and friends. Don't be hesitant to ask for recommendations. Another excellent source is asking some of your local establishments if they use a contract cleaning service to keep things looking so neat and tidy. And be sure things are neat and tidy before venturing forth that question.
If this quick method fails, then a third resource is to avail yourself to the wealth of information that will be available to you online. An easy task if you narrow your search down by geographic region. You do know how to do that right? Ok. For those of you that don't, here is a quick tip, just type in your location and add contract cleaning service after. It should look something like this – “Bedfordshire contract cleaning service” - and if you enclose it in quotes; you'll be sure to only look at highly relevant results which can save you oodles of time.
Once you have your search narrowed, it's time to make some phone calls and get some preliminary information on each company. Have questions you need answered jotted down beforehand to make this process as quick as possible.
It's recommended that when choosing a contract cleaning service that you secure at least three written estimates and a complete list of services that will be provided and naturally the stated costs involved.
Also don't be hesitant to ask for references. An established business shouldn't be afraid to volunteer such information. So be sure to ask.
Another factor that has to be considered is security and this goes for both residential and commercial. Ask about the companies employees. Do they do a Criminal Records Bureau check on each person they hire? Do they actually check references?
And what about a guarantee? What recourse do you have if you aren't satisfied with the services performed? All these questions should be addressed before you sign any type of contract with any contract cleaning service. Again, this all boils down to just good common sense wouldn't you agree?
