Commercial Cleaning Companies
The idea of commercial cleaning is not new, perhaps the chimney sweeps of Victorian times could be considered as being the first businesses in this industry. Needless to say, the commercial cleaning industry has matured since then and in the 21st century the market for commercial cleaning is large. According to market research, the commercial cleaning sector generates around £5bn in revenue shared between around 11,000 businesses employing nearly half a million people.

What do commercial cleaning companies do?
Many businesses offer a wide variety of cleaning services to both individuals and business clients, for example:
- floors, carpets and tiles
- partition and other walls
- suspended ceilings
- window cleaning
- deep cleans of sanitary conveniences and washing facilities,
- kitchens and dining areas
- telephones, computers and other IT equipment
- external cleaning of stonework, brickwork, cladding, roofs and other parts of your buildings
- litter picking
- removal of graffiti
In order to facilitate this cleaning, they use a variety of cleaning equipment, techniques and chemicals, including some very specialised ones such as soda blasting and poultice cleaning.
How do I find a reputable commercial cleaning company in Cardiff?
Unfortunately, because many of the tasks can be carried out by unskilled labour using minimal equipment, you need to be very careful when choosing the right partner for your cleaning project. Choosing the cheapest may not be the best idea. These businesses may be well-intentioned, but they just won’t have the experience and specialised equipment of companies like ourselves to do the job effectively. At best, cleaning will be poor, at worst, damage can be done to your assets and premises thus it is essential that you locate a reputable business to whom you can outsource your cleaning and feel comfortable that in the event something did go wrong, the cleaning company were insured.
For most businesses, the starting point for finding a supplier of commercial cleaning services in Cardiff will be the internet. Take a good look through the website, a reputable company will have been thorough; their site will contain the business details, companies house registration plus clear terms of trading. The details of what services they offer will be sufficiently detailed to make sure potential clients can see exactly what they will be getting.
You should also check to make sure that they are fully insured and can guarantee that health and safety will be maintained throughout the cleaning project – some of the chemicals used for industrial cleaning need careful handling and use; you need to make sure that the safety of your own staff and, where external cleaning is taking place the safety of the general public, will not be compromised.
Other points that you should check are whether they will they carry out a site visit to discuss your requirements, if they provide a firm price for the contract and if they can they provide any references or accreditations.
If you have any specialist cleaning needs such as graffiti removal, high-level cleaning, warehouse cleaning, machinery degreasing or delicate stonework, you should confirm they are equipped and skilled to deal with them. Additionally, cleaning should not disrupt your daily business routine so a reputable commercial cleaning company will be happy to clean ‘out of hours’.
