Why Choose Evergreen Office Cleaning Services

Why Choose Evergreen Office Cleaning Services

Many companies resent the money they have to spend on office cleaning services.  Their idea is, if it doesn’t contribute to the bottom line, they would rather not have to spend money on it.

On the other hand, no one wants to work in a dirty environment.

It’s not the job of an office employee to dust and mop the office.  Who is going to clean the door knobs and keyboards?  Cubicle walls are some of the most bacteria laden parts of an office.

You can’t take office cleaning for granted.  Either you hire staff to do the cleaning in your office or you hire an outside office cleaning services company.

Evergreen Building Maintenance has been cleaning offices and office buildings for over thirty years.

Hiring Your Own Cleaning Staff Is Too Expensive And Impractical

Hiring internal staff to keep the office clean, buying the equipment and training them on an ongoing basis is far too expensive for most companies.  For most small businesses a thorough cleaning once a week or once every two weeks is about right.

To go to the trouble of hiring part time staff and all the expenses that go with it is just too much trouble.  This is where it makes sense to outsource your cleaning.

Evergreen hires, trains and keeps employees for the long term.  Our cleaning staff are experts at what they do.

Not Having Your Office Cleaned Regularly Would Be A Disaster

Just imagine what a typical office building would look like without professional cleaning services.  There would be trash piling up, dirty, stinky bathrooms, and rugs that keep collecting bacteria and debris so you wouldn’t even want to walk on them.

It would be hard to get quality employees because no one would want to work there.  Clients would avoid coming to your office and would probably avoid dealing with your company.  Who wants to deal with unclean people?

With Evergreen Building Maintenance on your side, you’ll never have to deal with cleanliness as a problem.

A Clean Office Building Attracts Success

Clean bathrooms really make an impression on female clients… men too, but women are especially upset by unclean bathrooms.

If you have sparkling floors, immaculate lunchrooms and conference rooms meetings will go better since people are not distracted by dust, debris, and odours.  A clean, fresh-smelling conference room makes everyone feel positive… a great thing to have when making presentations.

Evergreen’s cleaning staff is specifically trained to be proactive in noticing things that need cleaning before your clients do.

Health And Cleanliness Go Hand In Hand

Even if something appears to be clean, like door handles, they can be coated with bacteria and viruses.  In fact, door handles are the primary way viruses travel through the office.

Other bacteria hot-spots are computer keyboards and the mouse that everyone touches after coughing, sneezing, and just before and after they grab a quick snack at their desk.

Don’t forget the door frame people touch as they lean into the office and the padded cubicle walls that are designed to absorb the sound and provide a quiet workspace.  These are some of the best places for bacteria to grow and prosper and make your employees sick.

For the health of your employees and the success of your business, a healthy and clean work environment really pays off.

Evergreen Building Maintenance uses the latest “Green Cleaning” products and equipment to prevent the collection and spread of germs in the office.

Commercial Cleaning Service and Janitorial Services

How To Get Top Tier Commercial Janitorial Service On A Tight Budget

Under pressure to get more done with a lower budget?  The cost of commercial janitorial service can quickly add up…and it’s not something you can just cut out!

As a Building and Facility Manager, we know you are often fighting an uphill battle.  Your company is skirting the fine line between profit and loss and doing whatever it can to stay out of the red.  They come to you to cut expenses, but at the same time, they want top tier commercial cleaning standards.

So, what do you do?  It’s simpler than you may think.

Enlist Your Commercial Janitorial Service Company To Help Cut Costs And Improve Efficiencies

A clean, fresh environment helps businesses run smoothly.  When commercial janitorial cleaning is performed regularly, including dusting and vacuuming, the indoor air quality promotes health and well being for your staff.  A well-managed commercial cleaning program reduces lost work time due to sickness and improves profits for the company.

When you have to get more accomplished in a tighter budget, some careful thought, customization and innovation is the answer.  You need to design a “smart cleaning” program.

Smart cleaning isn’t about buying the latest high-tech robots with artificial intelligence.  It’s about taking a deep look at how your facility is used.  Find the areas and types of cleaning that don’t need to be done every day.  Identify areas where a light cleaning will do the job most of the time with a more thorough cleaning once a week.

This is where you need to work closely with your commercial janitorial service provider.

A top tier commercial janitorial company has specialized teams with the training and equipment to get the job done efficiently, without wasting resources.  From experience in your building they know where the high use areas are and the areas that no one uses.

However, you can’t just tell your cleaning company to “go do it”.  For smart cleaning to be at all successful, it must be a collaboration between you and your commercial cleaning company.  Only you know what you can and cannot live without but only they understand how to shift their services to meet your goals without compromising your facility’s maintenance.

Smart Cleaning isn’t simply about LESS work it’s about BETTER work, and better practices.

The best commercial janitorial companies can customize a plan that finds that sweet spot where your needs match what you can afford.

You need to set a good baseline, but keep adjusting it to meet your changing needs and seasonal requirements.  The most effective commercial janitorial companies will know how to do more with less.

Effective ‘smart cleaning’ means your commercial janitorial service will focus their time where it is most needed and utilize state-of-the-art equipment, cutting edge cleaning methods and innovative techniques to create significant cost-cutting efficiencies.

Evergreen Building Maintenance works with our commercial clients behind the scenes to ensure that your place of business is always ready to welcome guests.

The floors will be spotless. The washrooms will be beautifully maintained, sanitized and smelling fresh. Common areas will always be free from dirt and dust.

The first impression of a clean facility is a long lasting one. Here at Evergreen Building Maintenance, we know the cleanliness of your facility is a direct reflection of your business.

Top 3 Things To Look For When Hiring Commercial Cleaning Services

The right commercial cleaning company provides more than just a professional appearance.   Research shows that if the working environment is dirty there are long term cognitive effects on employees.  If your work environment is not clean it can have a negative effect on your bottom line!

A study published in the Journal Of Occupational And Environmental Medicine shows that the right commercial cleaning service will strengthen the well-being and morale of your employees.  This has direct implications for increased productivity.

Nobody wants to do business with a company that has dirty facilities.  It’s a direct reflection of your office and your company.  No matter what kind of company you are, hiring the right commercial janitorial service is very important for your success.  This makes choosing the right commercial cleaning service one of the most important decisions you, as an owner, or your human resources department can make.

It can be very tempting to choose the least expensive cleaning company when comparing quotes, but remember:  you get what you pay for.

Hiring a commercial cleaning company is not an easy task, but if you do it right, you can find a commercial janitorial company that will be an asset for your business for years to come.

Here are the top three things to look for when you want a reliable commercial cleaning service for your building:

  1. Every company has different needs. Make sure your cleaning company offers the services you need based on the type of work you do.

    Work with the cleaning company’s consultant and map out the exact services you need.  Here are some examples of what to think about:

    1. Maybe you just need a simple vacuuming and dusting service
    2. Carpet and upholstery cleaning
    3. Cleaning of the toilets and washroom facilities several times a week
    4. Hardwood floor cleaning
    5. Power washing
    6. Parking lot cleaning
    7. Window cleaning
    8. Special event cleaning
    9. Special cleaning of certain rooms that are used in the evenings or early mornings
  2. Find out how many years they have been in business and what accounts they have with a business similar to yours.

    Do you really want your facility to be a training ground for your new commercial cleaning company?  Experience matters.  When you work with a  company that has been around for a while they will have long term employees and quality.

    Experienced companies are just better at what they do.  You want a company with years and years (preferably, decades and decades) of experience.   Mistakes that the new companies are stumbling through haven’t been an issue for the bigger, older companies forever. Techniques perfected by the older companies have been molded by wisdom and elevated by experience.  The new guys are still struggling to master the basics of their craft.  Sure, their work may be cheaper, but that’s because it’s of far less quality.

    Same thing applies for your industry.  If your cleaning company has experience with your industry, you will have a far better experience than if they don’t.

  3. Do they have the right kind of insurance? Not only do they need to have insurance, but your commercial cleaning company needs to have the right kind of insurance.

    Fly-by-night commercial cleaning services won’t be able to provide proof of insurance.  Look for clauses that ensure that protect you from legal liability if something happens to their workers while on your premises.  Make sure your cleaning company has general liability, worker’s compensation, automobile liability and an umbrella policy.  Verify coverage so you have peace of mind that you won’t be liable for mistakes made by your cleaning company.

Evergreen Building Maintenance has over 30 years of commercial cleaning services experience.  They have many experienced teams that have been with them “forever”.  All employees are specially trained  with the latest “green” commercial cleaning techniques and have the right tools for the job.

Morning Or Evening Office Cleaning – What’s Best?

Your employees spend a lot of time at the office.  Clients come and go, there are meetings, food, lots of things going on that can create an unsanitary situation at work.

In order for people to feel comfortable at work you need to have a clean place.  But when is the best time to bring in the commercial cleaning staff?

The first thing you need to decide is if you need daily, weekly or just monthly cleaning.  It’s not so much a matter of budget, but it’s more about what’s needed to make your working space comfortable.  An unclean office can become a source of stress.  Nobody needs that.

Maybe in your office there are certain areas that need cleaning daily and other areas where once a month would be ok.

The other thing to consider is if people often end up working late, at the office.  If that’s the case, is it ok to have commercial janitorial staff come in at the end of the day?  Or, will it be too much of a disturbance for employees that have already put in a long, hard day.

Cleaning equipment can be quite noisy, so if the type of work people end up doing late in the evening or night requires concentration, then maybe it’s not good to disturb them?

The morning can be a good time to bring in the cleaning crews if people come in at a consistent time and things are generally a little slow in the mornings.  You don’t want cleaning crew getting in the way of clients or staff frantically scrambling to meet deadlines.

Another thing to consider is if people in your office often have client or other meetings at night time and the office needs to look clean first thing in the morning.

All things considered, it’s important to have a clean working environment.  Your circumstances would determine whether you should have a commercial cleaning crew come in in the morning or evening.

Evergreen maintenance has crews that can do the job at any time of day or night.  If you have a special event happening at your office and need us to come in extra, we can do that too.
