How to Choose the Right Industrial Cleaning Company for Your Business.

By | Blog, Cleaning, Industrial Cleaning | 4 Comments

No matter if your place of business is an office building, warehouse or a factory, cleanliness is imperative to a safe and profitable work environment.

There are a number of industrial cleaning services/companies to choose from that can help you to maintain a clean work facility. However, some are better than others. When it comes to your place of business, you want a cleaning service that’s trustworthy and safe. While every company may claim to uphold these qualities, few to deliver on such promises.

Experience 

When deciding on which industrial cleaning service to use, consider the length of time they’ve been in business. The longer an industrial cleaning services company has been in business, the more references and experience they’ll have. You’ll want to make sure that the janitorial staff that’ll be in your place of business is experienced in cleaning similar environments to yours. Procedures for cleaning an office building, for example, differ greatly than the cleaning requirements of a factory, construction site, restaurant or medical facility. Each commercial environment has its own set of specific cleaning and sanitation requirements.

An experienced industrial cleaning company will also have experienced management. Experienced managers are needed to inspect employees’ work, and to also address any particular concerns of the client. If you have any concerns or specific requests, you’ll want them resolved in a timely and effective manner.

The People 

The hiring practices of an industrial cleaning services company are also important to consider. You’ll want to take the time to ask the manager if they hire workers that have criminal histories.

Ask the manager of the industrial cleaning company that you’re considering for references. It’s the most effective way of determining whether they provide quality work before you invite them into your place of business. Do they rush through things too quickly? Are other business owners satisfied with their work? How well do they address specific concerns?

Services Offered 

Does the industrial cleaning company that you’re considering offer services that address your commercial environment’s needs? And if so, how experienced are they in delivering those services in settings such as yours? An industrial cleaning services company that has many years of experience in a wide variety of settings will likely offer the specialised services that you need, including floor care, post construction clean-up, sanitation, and window cleaning.

Reliability and Flexibility 

So you’ve established a workable cleaning schedule, and everything is going as planned, but what happens if there’s a workplace incident that requires urgent clean-up or specialised cleaning care that is outside of your usual cleaning needs? Does the industrial cleaning services company you’re considering offer emergency services, or specialised cleaning to address these sorts of scenarios as needed? An industrial cleaning services company that offers emergency cleanup services will help you to get things back in order much more quickly.

Transparent Quoting & Billing 

It goes without saying that you’ll want to choose an industrial cleaning services company that you can trust. And nothing conveys trust more than how they handle their clients’ transactions. Everyone wants good value for their budget, and the only way to ensure this—beyond testimonials—is to find out how the industrial cleaning company you are considering will work with your needs, schedule and budget. Look for an industrial cleaning services company that offers no-obligation quotes, and takes the time to ask you questions about your commercial cleaning needs and specifics before agreeing to anything.

The right company will show interest in ensuring your arrangement is a mutual fit, and will be approachable and transparent in handling your questions and concerns.

Quality Control Measures 

Last but not least, when choosing a company, ask them what systems they have in place to ensure the same quality of service is delivered consistently. After all, few things are more frustrating than expecting to arrive at a clean workstation, only to find areas that were missed by your cleaners. Attention to detail is especially critical when it comes to employee health and safety, and impressing customers. Because of this, choose an industrial cleaning services company with established protocols that make them proactive—establishing a set of standards and ensuring they are being carried out consistently—rather than relying on their customers to complain. The right industrial cleaning company will have systems in place that make their customers satisfaction and retention their top-priority.

The IDEAL Way To Get Ready For Christmas

By | Blog, Christmas | One Comment

 

At Ideal, we always get into the festive mood for Christmas; mainly because food is involved. We have put together a list of ideas that will get you and your work colleagues ready for Christmas.

Decorate The Office

Not everyone enjoys or celebrates Christmas, so it’s best to not decorate the whole building with eye catching tinsel. However, for those who want to celebrate Christmas, you could decorate your work space i.e. your desk, with lots of festive trimmings!

Maybe you could put up a Christmas tree that has been decorated with far too many baubles. To really give your office that extra cosiness, put up some festive lights around your door frames and window sills. Another idea would be to put a bit of tinsel around your computer monitor.

There’s absolutely no shame if you want to go over the top and decorate your workspace from top to bottom- go for it!

Have a Good Ol’ Fuddle

Let’s face it. We all LOVE Christmas food. Mince pies, sausage rolls, ginger bread men or chocolate- we’ll have them all!

If you really want to impress your fellow colleagues then go all out and bake homemade goodies. Try searching for delicious ideas on Pinterest or Instagram.

If you’re not really a star baker, a trip to the supermarket will suffice (I don’t think it’s considered festive to poison your colleagues)

Secret Santa

I love Secret Santa, even though it never stays a secret. You always end up spilling the beans on who you have, nevertheless, it’s fun to do.

You don’t have to have a big budget. I know you spend the majority your life with the people you work with, but a £5 gift is more than enough to show them you care; just make sure the budget it communicated to everyone before you take part.

Also, please try to refrain from buying any inappropriate or offensive gifts!

Christmas Gift Wrapped With A Bow

Get Out Your Best Festive Jumper

An ugly one, one that plays music, one that lights up or a subtle one. You could do a best /worst jumper contest if you are really competitive. Or for all of you Christmas loving lot, why not go extreme and come to work dressed as Santa?

Charity Christmas Raffle

It’s always good to give at Christmas. Ideal always partake in a Christmas Charity Raffle. Instead of Christmas cards, employees at Ideal donate money to Charity. Half of the money will go to Charity and the other half goes towards a prize.

Office Party

I think I speak on behalf of everyone when I say we wait all year for the Christmas Party to arrive. Christmas Parties don’t always have to include alcohol either. A fun activity could be something which the Head Office employees at Ideal participated in recently, an Escape Room, not only is it team building, it’s also fun too!

For the more traditional lot, it’s nice to put on your glad rags and go for a nice meal and a “few” drinks. There’s nothing like an awkward/funny drunken office story.
