Security for the Janitorial Service

Office cleaning providers in Tucson know security is at the top of the list of priorities when their office is being cleaned. From the moment we start an account to the moment we leave security is very important. I want to cover some of the issues we have discovered over the years and tell a few stories.

Professional office cleaning involves security of the offices or building. We had a doctor's office we were cleaning and the doctor had security cameras everywhere and a gun in his office. Can you guess what type of doctor’s office this was?

As you can imagine security is highly important in a doctor’s office because some people believe there could be drugs inside. Security is a 24/7 thought in the Tucson doctor’s office cleaning. I don’t have any good stories that I can tell. If you are having problem with your current medical office cleaners then give us a call or fill out our fast online quote form and experience the difference of a professional janitorial service.

All the details are important when cleaning s doctors office here in the Tucson, Arizona. Doctor’s offices are mostly tile and take a two step process to clean the floor, sweep and mop. We have a proprietary system that will leave your floors looking great and it reflects on your business.

Doctors office usually include the basic services: lobby, entrance, exam rooms, and restrooms to name a few. We have all been to the doctor and everybody wants it to be clean. There are details such as items on counters pull away from walls and clean to disinfecting the lobby chairs, and straightening lobby chairs. In the exam rooms we’ll fill the dispensers and clean the sinks/counters.

Low Bid for Office Cleaning

Here in Tucson who wins when the office cleaning goes to the lowest bid? Nobody. The property manager pays for the savings in phone calls and wasting time with complaints. The tenants aren’t happy with the services and the office cleaning company is unhappy because aren’t making any money and receiving complaint phone calls.

Some stories I have heard are ugly stories about when the business went with the lowest bid. Our sales team was on a bid recently and the office manager showed them a video of the current janitor pushing a vacuum straight down the hallway and that was it. It is a shame when someone bids low, cuts corners, and then goes out of business.

If the office manager takes a low bid then has complaint after complaint it becomes time consuming and frustrating. I had a manager tell me her boss told her to just deal with the complaints. We give a fair price and do the job. Please see our online quote form for a fast redponse.

Most of the cost cutting and skipping of services I’ve been told are bizarre. Skipping one or two days a week to save money, now that’s a business model they don’t teach in school. If this sounds familiar don’t hesitate and give us a call, you’ll be glad you did.

Tucson Office Cleaning Supplies

Office cleaning supplies can work several ways.. The supplies are divided in two categories those are consumed by everyone and the cleaning supplies used to clean the building. Then the supplies need to be ordered, delivered, Let’s take a look.

Cleaning supplies needed to do the actual cleaning are provided by the janitorial service usually. This includes chemicals and equipment. Sometimes the owner may provide some of the cleaners and can liners. Many times the office manager will make a weekly run to costco and buy some of the supplies there. They like getting out of the office.

The supplies that are consumed by the tenants and clients: toilet paper, hand towels, and soap to name a few. The quality of the products should be discussed, especially if all the consumable products are included in one bundled price. Sometimes office managers are shocked at how much these products cost, and they keep going higher.

Ordering, delivering, and paying for the supplies can work in many combinations. Do you save money or does it cost more for buying the supplies through Desert Cleaning? It depends on the product and in general it costs about the same. We make a small amount for inventorying and delivering the supplies. It can usually be worked out to run smooth.
