Debunking 3 Common Commercial Cleaning Myths

At New England Cleaning Services, Inc. (NECS) we are aware of the many myths that Massachusetts businesses have around commercial cleaning companies. With so many cleaning companies out there, it’s easy to make generalizations, but we want to set the truths apart from the myths so that you can find the best commercial cleaning company for your business.

Here are the top 3 myths about commercial cleaning that we hear the most:

Cleaning companies are all the same

This couldn’t be further from the truth! While cleaning companies strive to clean your business, that one word can be vastly different depending on the quality and services offered. Not all commercial cleaning companies are certified through independent third-party associations to receive specific certifications. NECS has multiple certifications through Building Service Contractors Association Internations (BSCAI) to keep up to date on industry standards. Companies vary in their staff training, including their knowledge on handling hazardous materials, bio-wastes, and on cleaning equipment and techniques. While companies like NECS offers 24/7 client support and area managers to handle specific on-site issues, others have limited hours and availability for troubleshooting. The technology that is utilized during cleaning can also differ greatly across cleaning companies as well. To some cleaning companies, a mop, bucket, and a general cleaner is sufficient for cleaning, while for companies like NECS, advanced cleaning technology like Stabilized Aqueous Ozone and electrostatic disinfection are offered for the highest quality results.

Cleaning companies are too expensive

Many businesses tend to focus on the upfront costs of the cleanings without considering the consequences of the alternatives. Business managers may think that they can save money by having employees clean the facilities. But the truth is, when you think about the lost time, lost productivity, and subpar quality of the work done by non-professionals, it ends up costing more, not to mention the long-term issues that can arise from insufficient cleaning. Professional cleaners are trained in all aspects of cleaning, from equipment and cleaning technique to OSHA standards and protocols for emergency situations. It is worth the initial costs to set up routine cleanings and to know that your building is in good hands!

Hiring a cleaning company won’t make a difference

There’s a big difference between cleaning done by experienced professionals versus inexperienced employees. The surface may appear to be the same, but it’s what you can’t see that makes the biggest difference. The equipment and technology used by professionals allow for a sanitary, germ-free surface that minimizes the spread of disease, infection, and other harmful pathogens. So before you say no to hiring a commercial cleaning company, think of all of the germs and debris that are lurking in your facility that can wreak havoc on the health and cleanliness of your business.

The right cleaning company for you

Looking for a high quality cleaning company may seem like a daunting task, but don’t just go for the first one on your internet search results. Look for a reputable, trusted, experienced company like New England Cleaning Services, Inc. that always has the client’s best interest in mind to achieve the highest quality clean. Hiring NECS will not only offer a wide range of cleaning services, but will also give you access to project services like concrete refinishing, junk removal, and maintenance services.
