05 May How to choose the best strata cleaning company
If you’re part of an owner’s committee for a set of apartments or even in a commercial building then you have definitely discussed hiring a strata cleaning company.
As with any other service, you need to research. Finding the best strata cleaning company isn’t about going for what’s cheapest. It’s about getting the most value.
Ensuring you get the most bang for your buck will make a world of difference for your shared building in the long run.
So, how do you choose the best strata cleaning company? Let’s get into it.
Step #1: What tasks are involved?
The first step is to understand exactly what you’re getting for your money. You need to ask what tasks are involved in the service you are paying for. Common areas all businesses should cover, include:
- Graffiti and vandalism
- Window cleaning
- Rubbish removal
- Floors and interior surfaces, including windows and doors
Create a list of strata cleaning businesses you have identified and then ask each to give you a detailed list of tasks they perform.
From here, comparing your options will be easy. You will be able to determine which company provides the most value based on your needs.
Step #2: Compare
Comparing leads to shortlisting. Your first task is to determine which company performs the greatest number of tasks that you need. Get rid of the ones that don’t fit the bill.
Your second task is to find out how much each company charges. Get an idea of the price range is being set and then see what suits your budget best.
To make the best decision possible, don’t just rely on the two above factors. It’s time to head to do some digging. Head to each company’s website. Find out a little more about them. Also, if a business doesn’t have a website, it’s probably a good sign to keep clear.
Finally, look for customer reviews. If you look via Google, you will surely get the most accurate information about just how good a business really is. If you see lots of poor reviews then you probably don’t want to engage with the business at all.
Step #3: Negotiate and agree
By now, you should be pretty familiar with the product and how much it should cost. You’re aware of the service, costs and competitors. Get the best price for yourself and look to develop a long-term relationship with your chosen company.
