Only a person who does nothing makes no mistake – this is the justification most people use when being wrong. Sometimes, the mistakes at work can be forgiven, in other cases – not at all. The mistakes in the cleaning business are of the second kind. It is absolutely unforgivable for a hired professional to make a mistake. However, this happens. There are, in fact, five most common mistakes the cleaning companies make.
The lack of professionalism is common for some smaller companies. Part of the people working there consider cleaning an easy job and that dusting the furniture, cleaning the floor and taking out the trash is enough. They couldn’t be more wrong. The job must be executed perfectly and on time and the only way to do that is if a company hires professional, hard workers.
The staff is one of the most important factors for a cleaning company’s success. Some employers, however, skip this fact, especially the part with the number of people needed to get a job done. In some cases, a cleaning company takes on too many jobs and an hour later they realize they do not have enough people to satisfy all the customers.
Low prices or dumping are one of the most unpleasant aspect of every field of business. Usually, it is small companies that do that. They rely on low prices and a big number of clients. Setting prices too low, however, increases the possibility of bankruptcy. Other possibility is that the low prices are due to the usage of low quality products and equipment.
There is no question whether the company needs a website or not. It doesn’t matter if it is a cleaning company or any other field of work, there can be no compromise with this thing – there must be a website.
Taking on more than they can handle is the fifth and one of the most common mistakes there is. Sometimes companies make promises that they will do a certain job for a certain period of time and with certain results, but they just do not manage to live up to that promise. It is even worse when they rush the cleaning of an office or a home, because they can still charge you for their full services.
But cleaning companies are generally professional. They do not just clean but they also protect your home and office. You need quality products and special equipment to clean and protect your furniture, floors, windows and walls and these are too expensive and are not something a normal household should spend money on. It is cheaper and, quite frankly, easier to hire a professional and enjoy the result.
