8 Myths about hiring an office or commercial cleaner gone!
03 Oct 16
Knowing the facts can help you make the right choice when it comes to your office and commercial cleaning.
Check out our eight myths about having an office or commercial cleaner below:
Myth #1: Only lazy people need a cleaner
You have enough to worry about in your work day let alone the cleaning!
People want to leave work behind at the end of the day so they can spend time with their family and friends. No one wants to stay any longer and clean the place!
People want that quality time back in their lives and that is why people hire the services of a commercial cleaner.
Myth #2: You can’t trust a commercial cleaner
It can be unsettling letting someone you don’t know into your workplace. It is a place where you spend most of your day and you have private documents and items in your office. It is understandable why people are uncomfortable with the idea.
You hear stories of cleaners not being trustworthy and this can put you off the idea of hiring the services of a cleaner.
This is why it is important to hire a cleaner who is police checked and fully insured (all of our franchisees are).
This protects you, the cleaner, and the workplace. Trust and security are key!
Myth #3: Only women can clean!
You’ve heard it before, “only women know how to get things really clean,” well we are here to prove this isn’t true.
With the right training anyone can learn how to deliver a quality clean each and every time.
Myth #4: Cleaners don’t know what they are doing
It is important to hire a cleaner that has undergone comprehensive training, so they know how to clean your workplace to the highest standard.
Our franchisees undergo an extensive and thorough training programme and are trained in the use of products and the best methods to clean different surfaces with the right products.
It’s experience, knowledge and training that make the difference.
Myth #5: If you book a cleaner anyone can just rock up
Make sure you go with a company that will be sending out the same cleaner each and every time. That way you know who will be in your workplace at all times.
Our cleaning services are done by the same franchisee each time. The franchisees are owner operators, meaning they work both on and in the business. You will meet the franchisee during the quoting process and the franchisee will be the person performing the services in your workplace.
It’s important that you feel comfortable and trust who is providing the services in your office at all times.
Myth #6: Cleaners use horrible products
Check what products the cleaner will be using in your workplace.
Do you supply the products or do they bring the products with them?
Some cleaning companies (like us) use products that that are environmentally friendly.
The products we use contain HealthGuard™ which provides a safe, effective and environmentally sound solution to a wide range of common health problems caused by ineffective bacteriological controls.
Using the right products mean germs and bacteria stay away for longer, meaning your staff will stay well and germs won’t spread.
Myth #7: If you book a cleaner you must have your house cleaned every week
Most cleaners allow you to choose a tailor made package to suit your needs. Whether it is a weekly, fortnightly, monthly, once off or a clean of selected areas in your office such as bathrooms and kitchens. The choice is yours.
Cleaners can as little or a much as you like.
Myth #8: Finding a cleaner is a long process.
Many cleaning companies have an easy process to find a cleaner instantly.
