by | Mar 5, 2013 | Home Improvement

Professional cleaning services is a necessary but often poorly considered function of most businesses. Whatever the industry, all businesses will have some sort of cleaning needs, whether it is dusting, carpet vacuuming, trash management or bathroom maintenance. Few business owners sit down and consider anything about the company they hire to keep the premises relatively neat aside from cost, but professional cleaning services Phoenix should be much more.

What professional cleaning services offer

Phoenix has any number of companies offering commercial cleaning. Typically, professional cleaning services offer the following basic services:

  • Trash disposal
  • Vacuuming carpets
  • Mopping and polishing floors
  • Sweeping
  • Window washing (interior)
  • Dusting and cleaning surfaces
  • Bathroom maintenance

They may also offer the special services based on the size and type of the business establishment, requirements of the owner, as well as the size of the staff. These will not be included in a basic service contract:

  • Window washing (exterior)
  • Ceiling and light fixture cleaning
  • Pressurized washing of the building’s exteriors and parking lot
  • Air conditioning maintenance
  • Deep carpet cleaning
  • Intensive cleaning (“Q-Tip cleaning”)
  • Floor stripping and waxing

How much do professional cleaning services cost?

Basic professional cleaning services Phoenix will cost anywhere from 5 to 35 cents per square foot, depending on the needs of the establishment. Smaller professional cleaning services usually have lower prices because they have a limited range of equipment and cleaning products, but these usually suffice for small, self-contained offices. A small office can get by with a basic cleaning package of $100 or $200 a month.

For bigger establishments with large trash disposal needs, the cleaning rates can be upwards of $2,000 a month, with a separate trash disposal agreement of $500 monthly. These are usually for places with a large square footage (i.e. more than 20,000 sq feet) such as manufacturing, retail, food service and general services.  For medical facilities, the pricing structure is different, typically hourly rates of $18 and up.

Special services are usually contracted on a per project basis as they are done on demand, and the price will depend on the size of the project.   Before having special services done, have the company do a walk through and provide a job estimate to ensure that there is no misunderstanding of what needs to be done and the cost.

Keeping an establishment clean is a good way to ensure the safety of employees and conveying a good impression to clients or customers. Give due consideration when engaging a company to provide professional cleaning services.
