Let’s face it. It’s happened to everyone of us if we have ever employed a commercial cleaner to take care of our office cleaning or to do our property maintenance. It’s just a fact of life and really, it’s not a biggie. There are plenty of commercial cleaning companies out there. What is it though that makes one cleaning company better than another? Is it that one has better cleaning techniques than another or is it more to do with the attitude of the staff that they might employ?
It doesn’t take much skill for example to push a vacuum cleaner around in a commercial property. Nor does it take much skill to swish a toilet brush around in a bowl. What it does take is the proper attitude. Anyone can vacuum carpet. Anyone can clean a toilet bowl. What sets a lot of good commercial cleaners apart from bad cleaners is their attitude. Let me explain. In all commercial cleaning jobs, to vacuum and clean toilets is a must. If the cleaner has the attitude that near enough is good enough, then they wont last very long in the job.
Their attitude should be that if they get paid to do a specific task, they do it to the best of their abilities and to the standard that is required by the commercial cleaning company as well as the client. I have seen far too many cleaners over the years try and get away with cutting corner after corner in the hope of being able to get away early for whatever reasons. Some have the attitude that ‘I don’t want to be here, I hate this job’. Well, so be it then. I fired people like that because it ended up costing me money and sometimes the commercial cleaning contract as well. Not worth the price.
A good office cleaning company will always put the client over a lazy cleaner that they might have unfortunately employed.
