Think you can’t afford janitorial services? They’re more affordable than you realize, which means every company can find a budget-friendly commercial cleaning company. While larger companies might spend thousands of dollars a month on commercial cleaning, you can enlist a cleaning company for as little as $300 a week for a once a week service.
The mistake most businesses make is assuming commercial cleaning services are priced as a commodity, with a fixed cost per square foot. But that’s not the case. There are many invisible factors that determine how much a commercial cleaning company charges—and that means we have the flexibility to work with you to design a cleaning program that fits your budget. All you have to do is ask!
Here are some tips to help you get the best deal:
1. Understand the scope of work.
When you’re comparing janitorial services, it’s not just about price. To land a budget-friendly commercial cleaning company, you need to understand what you’re getting for your money. The scope of work is an itemized list of everything the cleaning company is agreeing to do in their contract with you. You might get bids from three different companies for the same dollar amount, but the scope of work they’re offering might be drastically different. Make sure you’re comparing apples to apples.
2. Consider what services you need.
Instead of letting the cleaning company tell you what scope of work they’re offering, you can take a proactive approach by letting them know upfront what services you want. Make a list of items you want included in your cleaning contract and present it to them when you ask requesting a bid. You can even download a generic scope of work template and modify it to fit your needs.
3. Bundle your cleaning services and supplies to save money.
Instead of going to different vendors for pressure washing, window washing, deep carpet cleaning or to order supplies, choose a full-service commercial cleaning company that can bundle services and supplies into your janitorial contract. It’s the best way to ensure you’re working with a budget-friendly commercial cleaning company. You’ll save time, money and the hassle of hiring multiple companies for all of your needs.
