How a Commercial Cleaning Contract can Enhance Your Cardiff Business

In today’s competitive market, a business has to be at the top of its game and that includes maintaining the standards of cleanliness within their premises.  Investing in an experienced industrial commercial industrial cleaning contract can bring huge benefits to your Cardiff business by leaving a positive impression on both employees and visitors.

Legal Requirements

A place of work is an important part of our lives and can affect staff motivation and wellbeing.   Not everyone is aware that keeping your business premises clean and tidy is a requirement of   employers by law. Ensuring that employees are working in the correct temperatures, have enough lighting and ventilation and that they are working in a clean and tidy environment is part of Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

What’s more, unclean office space or grubby commercial or industrial premises are certainly not going to impress your customers.  This principle applies no matter what sector you operate in including  engineering plants, factories and other industrial environments,  retail outlets, offices  surgeries, call centres and schools.... to name but a few.

Use of Products

One of the key services that you should look for when appointing a commercial cleaning company is their attention to detail.  Make sure that the quote and subsequent contract includes the smaller tasks such as cleaning phones and light switches as well as the bigger jobs such as floors and wash rooms.   If you are operating in an industrial or engineering environment, your contract cleaners should be providing a deep clean within the schedule on a regular basis to ensure heavy duty dirt is not allowed to build up.

You should also check what products your commercial cleaners are using; not only should they be efficient and effective but also have minimum impact on the environment.  It’s equally important that they don’t use harsh, cheap chemical cleaning products that can damage surface areas, leaving you with the cost of replacing or renewing them.  For example, the products should be sourced from a reputable supplier, using up-to-date, natural ingredients such as citrus based, not hydrogen peroxide or caustic -based sanitizers or disinfectants, or chlorine-based ones like bleach . 

From a cost perspective, cleaning products should also be able to be diluted with cold rather than hot water.  Check that product packaging that is minimal and recyclable. The contract cleaners carrying out the work should also be fully trained in procedures and the appropriate use of products to avoid errors or accidents. They should also be aware of best practice in terms of environmental cleaning techniques.

Cleaning Contracts

The most professional commercial and industrial cleaning companies should offer Cardiff businesses a cleaning service on a contract basis according to budget and requirements.  As a business service provider, a cleaning company can analyse and evaluate a business premises and offer a customised service specific to that business. They should also be prepared to carry out spot checks by supervisors to ensure the highest standards of cleaning at all times.

When it comes to the contract, you need to be specific about what it entails.  Does it include regular deep cleans? Does it include bath and washroom facilities?  Do you expect phones and computers to be cleaned daily?   These details may sound picky but it's important to clearly outline your requirements to meet your expectations.  

Hiring a professional commercial cleaning company is often considered to be an economical way to ensure that that your legal requirements are met and that your Cardiff business or industrial premises looks as best it can.

The railway bridge had been constructed over 20 years ago and had heavy contaminated surfaces and build up of unsightly green algae and moss. There was also many years’ worth of graffiti to remove. It was very unsightly and the foot way had become very slippery and was affecting safe passage for pedestrians and school children going to and from the school and village.
