Is my company getting the cleaning service it deserves?
With business finances never been tighter than ever before it is more important than ever to ensure every penny is well spent and returns value for money. The cost of your office cleaning and exactly what you get for your money has equally fallen under the fiscal microscope like never before.
The days of non accountability should be a thing of the past, however sadly in some companies this is not the case. Examples can still be found of businesses not using the services of cleaning companies who have a proof of “time on site “system.
Principle of Office Cleaning
The principal behind such a system is simple and extremely effective .It is an electronic logging system leaving an audit of what time and who arrived and left your office. This can then be built on reports which you can access on a regular basis. There are plenty such systems being used by reputable cleaning companies such as Ezitracker and Staffcheck however there are many more packages like these mentioned being used by cleaning companies.
The benefits behind such a system are clear, you know exactly how much time was spent cleaning your offices and precisely who was there. This ensures accountability and gives you reassurance your business has received the time you are paying for.
It also demonstrates your cleaning company (or one you are considering using) take service and value for money seriously ,which in the current climate should be a must .It also gives a good indication that the cleaning company are likely to ensure that other aspects of their business are as clean as your offices should be , for instance it is less likely that they are employing cleaners who are also on benefits or working illegally (due to lack of visa or permit etc) although it should be pointed out it is only an indicator and should not be taken as fact . The likelihood however is their organisation will be a fit and proper one as using a tracking system on their staff leaves an audit trail which authorities like department of work and pensions or borders forces could easily seize should they choose to investigate the conduct of the business and who the company employ.

Therefore if you have had suspicions for some time that your offices just don’t appear to be as clean as they should be then maybe it’s time to investigate the benefits of such a system further. Let’s be honest none of us like to think we are being short changed however and your cleaning services were probably never at the top of the list of services to audit and monitor. Times and finances have changed however so maybe it’s time to check your current cleaning companies quality of service a little closer.
