Why experience matters in the commercial cleaning industry.

Experience and expertise matter in the commercial cleaning industry. Depth of experience and knowledge can be the difference between a great commercial cleaning service and one that doesn't meet your expectations.

Commercial cleaners with extensive experience across a range of industries know how to clean a variety of businesses properly. They will have the latest cleaning equipment and products, highly trained staff and a wealth of knowledge.

Not all commercial cleaning is the same. An experienced commercial cleaner will know that different businesses have different cleaning requirements.

They will know if industry-specific standards must be met, if particular cleaning products should be used, and when cleaning should occur. Their experience will enable them to anticipate your needs and tailor a suitable service for you.

The right kind of clean

Not all commercial cleaners do the same type of work. It's important that a cleaner has an understanding of your space as well as in-depth knowledge of your industry and the guidelines or standards that must be followed.

Every business has different cleaning needs, and your commercial cleaner should tailor your service to your needs. Some environments, like offices, need a simple dusting, vacuuming and rubbish collection. Other commercial environments need regular deep cleaning, specific cleaning products, or a certain standard of infection control.

A commercial cleaner with experience in your industry will know what standards they need to meet and have all the right tools, equipment and training to do the job right.

When infection control matters

Cleaning is your first line of defence against infectious diseases. Experienced commercial cleaners have always known this, but it is even more critical in our new 'COVID-normal' world.

There are many different factors a commercial cleaner should consider when it comes to infection control. For example, the type of business, the risk of infection, if vulnerable people work or visit the business, and what type of cleaning products are appropriate. The way a commercial cleaner manages infection control for a school is very different than for a small office.

The right tools for the right job

Professional commercial cleaners should have the latest tools, equipment and products to perform a variety of cleaning tasks. Having the right commercial cleaning equipment will maximise cleaning efficiency and results.

Experience is essential when selecting the right tool for the right job. Choosing the wrong product or equipment to perform a task can result in damage to your property. A professional cleaner knows which cleaning products to use on which surfaces, avoiding damage to surfaces, fixtures and furniture.

Fully supported team of professional cleaners

The importance of experience goes beyond the team of professional cleaners that visit your property. It is equally important that the cleaning team is supported by an experienced management team and robust management systems.

An experienced leadership team will share their knowledge and support their team. Coupled with management systems that maintain accountability, monitor quality and keep track of tasks will ensure a gold standard professional commercial cleaning service.

Working with your schedule

Experienced commercial cleaners will expect to work with your schedule. Some businesses, like shopping centres and public facilities, expect cleaning to happen during operating hours. Others prefer their cleaners to be like magical fairies that come after hours and make everything nice and clean for the next day.

Commercial cleaners should be able to anticipate your needs based on the nature of your business and offer a suitable service.
