Anyone who has a company or building which needs to be kept tidy will most certainly have a team of workers who will deal with this matter daily. However, this will take an inordinate amount of organization and the time taken to interview, employ and pay these workers may seem a little too much for some. In fact, they will probably have to be supervised too so sometimes these companies will contract out this work to save them all the necessary paperwork. For those who need to do this, look for ‘janitorial services’ or ‘commercial cleaning’ online to see what is available in the local area.
It is clear that most buildings will have different materials within and these may take some special care to keep them looking good. Marble floors, although very tough and hardwearing, can be scratched and marked if the materials used to lift the dirt and grime is not the correct ones.
We have all seen those box like machines which people push around corridors and thee are fitted with different pads to undertake different aspects of the work. For example, there may be a pad which scrubs floors put on but these will not have any sharp edges or metal shards in them if the floor is highly polished. Instead, it will depend on the chemicals used to lift the dirt and the pad will just aid this. However, for very hard floors, the pads can be changed for scrubbing ones which really scrape dirt off. There are even ones made to lift off old polish too and once this has been done, liquid polish is laid down and the machine fitted with buffing pads to bring the floor to a high shine.
Some companies will also offer a handyman or two who will traverse the building looking for odd jobs which need to be done. Light bulbs which have been burned out need to be changed, electrical socket points which are loose or need changing or picture hooks which need to be put into walls, all are the work of these guys who just make sure that everything is working as it should. It is easy to see then why a company would want to hire a third party company to come in and do all this kind of work and let the hiring company get on with what it is supposed to do. It is much easier for the company to just report everything that needs doing to the third party company and it will probably save on cash too since they will be making just one payment every month instead of having a whole section on the payroll.
For those who are looking for a third party company like this, it is a good idea to find out what neighboring businesses do for these duties. It sometimes pays to get the same company since any sick leave is usually covered and the third party company will always look after those businesses which are all in the same area.
