Criteria for selecting cleaning company depend primarily on client’s needs. If the priority is low cost of services, you can choose a small local company that is willing to provide services for the lowest price. But in this case it’s necessary to understand all the risks: in such company employees do not always have a high level of expertise, in addition, certain types of surfaces or dirt need expensive equipment and chemicals, and in the arsenal of a newly-created and small cleaning company they may simply be absent.

Also, the condition of cleaning company’ office will tell a lot. Well, of course, the cost of service should still be competitive, overpayment for single name of cleaning company is not worth it.

In this case it’s much easier to choose a multi-service cleaning company that works not only in Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa, but also in any other cities to ensure smooth cooperation. This factor is particularly important if you want a regular eneryday cleaning. Cooperation with such company is a lot easier than to seek local companies for each object separately , besides , these services will be more cheap for you, as soon as the cleaning company will be able to offer discounts and bonuses for the amount of works.
Choosing a cleaning company, first of all, make a list of requirements that are important to meet and then start searching.

Once clear objectives will be established for the implementation of cleaning in the business center, shopping mall, or any commercial or industrial facility, try to find a company that will best meet your needs.
In addition, it is possible to estimate forehand, how much the company is attentive to the needs of its clients: convey your notes to the company representative and ask him to form several variants of cooperation proposals — for example, for different number of cleaners on the change and with the use of various detergents.
