Choosing a Cleaning Company

Professional cleaner’s vs Private Cleaners

When it comes to finding the best service to clean your commercial spaces, you may find you are faced with a host of choices, ranging from professional cleaning companies to private cleaners.

Choosing a professional cleaning company will often prove to be the most advantageous if you’re looking for a thorough cleaning of your workspace.

Below we have put together a number of differences between professional cleaners and private cleaners to help you make the best choice for you.

Differences between professional cleaning and private cleaning

Private cleaners often service both domestic residences and commercial spaces and can often be cheaper to use as they do not employ large teams however, they will not be trained in the needs of commercial cleaning providing just the basic cleaning such as you would receive in your own home, hoovering, dusting and surfaces wipe downs.

A professional cleaning company will have more employees and greater access to specialised cleaning equipment such as fogging machines and protective gear in case they are handling hazardous material. The benefits of choosing a professional cleaning service

Hiring a private cleaner is good if you need a cheap regular clean. However, if you want or need a deeper focus on eliminating germs and bacteria, hiring a professional cleaner will benefit you more overall. You can hire a private cleaner for a regular cleaning that helps you keep on top of the dirt   in   between deep cleans but a deep clean is best undertaken by a professional.

1. Professional deep cleaning services

One of the main cleaning services you will get from hiring a professional is a deep clean. This goes further than a regular clean, taking care to sanitise every surface and leaving no stone unturned.

This will include providing everything from cleaning every surface thoroughly, office utilities e.g., kitchens and toilets will be cleaned, any waste removed from the premises and disposed of responsibly.

2. Specialised Cleaning Equipment

Professionally trained cleaners have more specialised skills and experience apart from just general cleaning. They will conduct a more thorough and effective cleaning job, going beyond what a general domestic cleaner would do. Another advantage to choosing a professional cleaning company over a private one is the access they have to cleaning equipment. A professional cleaner has the training and experience to utilise fogging machines, these became important during Covid, pressure washers as well as telescopic poles and water pumps for window cleaning. A private cleaner will have access to basic cleaning supplies, hoover, and mop.

3. Flexible Cleaning Contracts

Private cleaning while being cheaper are usually limited to work hours of 9-5 which will also include their travelling time job to job meaning if they are fully booked, it may be hard for you to negotiate a time slot in which to conduct the clean.

Professional cleaners can have more flexibility. Our contracts allow us to organise cleaning visits around your work schedule and even after working hours. And in an emergency, there is usually always a team ready to be there as soon as possible.

An ISO a key point to consider is that a professional cleaning company will be fully insured and trained in COSHH requirements and be DBS checked.
