We hope that with this guide to hiring cleaning companies we will help you solve the most frequent questions that arise when hiring a cleaning company.
Can I do the cleaning myself, or should I hire a company?
If you have a company and need your facilities cleaned, the possibility of doing it with your own staff will lead to more expenses than if you hire a cleaning company, so you will find few businesses or companies in Canberra that use their own staff for these purposes.
This is because the company you hire will solve your problems using fewer hours than you would with your own staff. This will increase the quality of the cleaning and you will have more time to spend on your business.
Is it good to frequently change the cleaning company?
No. The custom is to change the cleaning company every year, and this leads to worse results. Knowing that we replace annually it, the contracted company does not maintain the agreed level of quality.
Looking for a long-term relationship with the cleaning company allows them to better understand the needs and facilities of the client.
The recommendation is that when you hire a cleaning company; you do so thinking long-term and making contracts of at least two or three years that can be extended.
Is it necessary for the company to comply with the Risk Prevention Law?
Of course. This law determines important sanctions. You are also, as a contracting party, jointly and severally liable for compliance with said law. Our company in Brisbane complies with the hygiene and safety measures referred to in the law.
It is also for this reason that many cleaning budgets are much lower in price than others, because companies with prices outside the market do not comply with the Law on Prevention of Occupational Risks, or because they do not have civil liability insurance, or because they do not have their employees properly hired.
What responsibility do you have over the company’s workers?
It has a subsidiary responsibility. This means that if the cleaning company does not pay their employees, in the event of insolvency they can claim against you. Check that the company is aware of its obligations and be wary of low prices, it may be a sign that all obligations with the company’s personnel will not be fulfilled.
Should we verify that the company has insurance?
It is an essential condition. The company must have civil liability insurance that covers you for damages that workers may cause in its facilities.
Likewise, you must be sure that the cleaning company is up to date with the payment of your social security, because if this is not the case and being a subsidiary responsible, you may be forced to fulfill the obligations that the company has failed to comply with.
What would happen if an operator of a cleaning company suffers an accident at work? And the company is not up to date in fulfilling its obligations? It is not worth taking risks, hire a cleaning company that has specialization in the cleaning sector.
