How to Pick the Right Summer School Cleaning Plan

May 29th, 2015 · No Comments

Congratulations! You are ahead of the game by looking to get a summer school cleaning plan now rather than waiting until school is out. Maybe this is your first time setting up janitorial services, or perhaps you are looking to switch companies. Either way, there are definitely things to consider when signing up for a cleaning plan. Not only should you scrutinize the expertise and services of the company, but you will also have to think about what specific needs your school requires. ServiceMaster Clean is one of the many school janitorial service providers in Pittsburgh, PA. Our goal is to ensure that you are finding the right plan for you, so here are some helpful questions you should ask yourself when setting up a school cleaning plan for the summer.

Before you even consider calling cleaning companies, please consider the following to determine if they pertain to your specific facility:

  • What amount of foot traffic is there during the summer months? Will you have more traffic during some parts of the summer than others? For example, you may have a summer school class in June, but not in July or August. Therefore, your cleaning sessions may need to be more frequent during busier months.
  • Would you prefer to have cleaning done during the day or at night? Would you want a staff member available when the cleaning crew arrives, or do you plan to give complete facility access to the crew?
  • Are there certain areas of the school that you want more attention given to than others? For example, individual lockers may not have to be cleaned as often as administration offices.

Once you have a good idea of what your facility needs, the next step is to find a janitorial company that will be the best fit for you. Here are some things to look for when choosing a school cleaning crew:

  • The company should be able to specify all of the services they provide, as well as provide customization to fit the specific needs of your school.
  • Feel free to ask for references from the company. Have other educational facilities vouched for their services?
  • Have their technicians received formal training in commercial cleaning? Would your cleaning crew have previous cleaning experience in the educational field?
  • Has the company obtained any specialized certification in janitorial service practices?
  • Is the company being upfront about their pricing and not trying to reel you in with a “too-good-to-be-true” offer?

Remember, any cleaning company you are considering should be able to provide you with proof of practice, references, examples of expertise, etc. Anyone that is not willing to provide you with this information may not be the best choice for your school.
