Know Your Sweep and Scrub Company – Part 1

Know Your Sweep and Scrub Company – Part 1

Finding the right contractor to sweep and scrub your warehouse or car park surfaces can be an in-depth process.

Your space is important and should only be cleaned by the company that best suits you and you should be as informed as possible before selecting a contractor.

Here are some questions to ask of your sweep and scrub company, to make sure you’re hiring the best contractor available to you.

Are They Professional?

Your company deserves a contractor with a professional approach.

They should take the job seriously, and approach their work with expertise and a positive attitude.

A lack of professionalism can mean a shoddy job, poor presentation and a negative attitude.

This should be avoided at all costs, as the end result could cost your business more money than it’s worth, as well as affect your own reputation with customers and clients.

True professionalism can be evident in many ways – clean and well-presented uniforms, a positive attitude, well cared for equipment and a professional online presence.

Look for these when searching for a company to sweep and scrub your premises.

Are They Environmentally Conscious?

An environmentally conscious cleaning company is an ally for your business, especially if your company is striving to be green.

By employing an eco-friendly and sustainable contractor, you are ensuring that damage to the environment is minimised during the cleaning process.

This damage can happen through poor practices, the use of dangerous chemicals and a poor clean-up process after sweeping and scrubbing.

Working with an environmentally conscious cleaning company can also have a great effect on your reputation. This can in turn attract more clients and customers.

We need to be aware of our impact on the environment more than ever, and take whatever measures possible to lessen that impact.

Hiring a sustainable and eco-friendly sweep and scrub contractor is an excellent step in the right direction for your business.

Do They Have a Good Reputation?

Almost every reputable company will have an online presence.

Online, through either search engines or social media, you’ll be able to get a good idea of a company’s reputation in the industry through reviews and testimonials.

It’s also important to find out how long the cleaning company has been operating for. If the contractor is very new, it may be harder to find reliable feedback on their performance.

This may also reflect a lack of experience, though not always. If in doubt, you should ask the contractor for references.

Word of mouth referrals are even better, as studies have shown that this kind of communication influences us the most.

What Methods and Equipment Do They Use?

You need to ensure that you’re well informed about the methods and equipment that your contractor uses.

A sweep and scrub company that uses proven methods with plenty of experience in the field will obviously be a better option.

If you hire a contractor who uses ineffective or faulty methods, you’re essentially putting your investment on the line.

The contractor may damage your surfaces, or hardly clean them at all. This just costs you time and money in the end.

The same goes for old or poorly maintained equipment – the contractor may do more harm than good when it comes to sweeping and scrubbing your space.

Usually you’ll be able to find some information on a contractor’s website about the machinery and methods they use. If not, simply call them to find out.

Your business deserves to work with a cleaning contractor equipped with cutting edge and well-maintained machinery, such as our ride on LPG machines.
