Needless to say, there's nothing wrong with a messy place, since that's the reason why you hired our cleaning services in the first place. But you may start wondering, should you tidy up before your cleaner arrive? If you're struggling with this dilemma, then this blog will come in handy.
Decluttering Your Space
To get straight to the point, you should leave the tough cleaning tasks up to our team, but you should also tidy up. What we mean by this is to put back things in their proper places and declutter as much as you can. The less clutter you have around, the easier it'll be to focus on more important tasks such as wiping down your desks, chairs, and so on. While our team are more than capable of picking up items and organizing each room, remember that if they spend too much time organizing, they will have less time to deal with the real cleaning tasks that you expect then to do. We are always happy to listen to your needs and respond quickly to your needs.
Secure Fragile Items or Equipment
It's important for everyone's safety, to think about any breakable items or equipment around your office. You should secure them before the cleaners arrive. Alternatively, you can also ask them for help (although note that this can cut down on their cleaning time and/or may entail extra charges).
Obviously, our professional cleaners are trained to be mindful of their clients’ belongings. Nevertheless, your property is ultimately your responsibility so make sure to secure anything that you don’t want to be broken, damaged o may be a potential hazard for our cleaners. If anything is especially valuable to you or needs to be cleaned in a specific way, let us know ahead of time.
Communicate Any Questions or Special Requests.
Store Any Paperwork That Might Put Data Security At Risk
If you work in places that deal with a lot of paperwork, like a law office or accounting firm, it’s best to store any and all paperwork that might put data security at risk. Even seemingly innocent notepads should be kept in secure cabinets or else taken home before the cleaners arrive.
Rest assured that all of our staff have gone through a background check and are fully bonded, insured, and have signed a confidentiality agreement. Just like valuable and fragile property, managing office paperwork falls upon your hands. Professional cleaners might inadvertently glance at confidential documents, which can compromise a client’s privacy. Moreover, accidents can happen. Someone might knock a stack of folders off a table, resulting in missing or rearranged files. To keep the integrity of your office documents, keep them secure and away from areas being cleaned.
Tidying Up Is Not Just About Efficiency
At the end of the day, tidying up is not just about efficiency. It’s also about showing respect to your cleaners. You hired them for your convenience, and it’s also helpful if you can discuss your expectations beforehand.
Verify what’s covered and what’s not, so you know what you’ll be getting with what you pay for. If you need or want them to do something extra, let them know in advance to give them ample time to prepare.
Of course, if you asked for additional services, you should be ready for additional fees. Unless the management says it’s free of charge, you should always assume that you’re going to pay for add-ons.
When we work with you, we'll always listen to your needs and make a plan that will adjust to your specifications.
