First of all, let us look into how is office cleaning different from regular housekeeping or home spring cleaning.

While normal housekeeping will focus on keeping spaces dust free and organizing items on surfaces. Office cleaning will be focused on cleaning high touch surfaces and clearing trashes on a regular and timely basis.

Office cleaning will also need to give extra attention to public spaces such as bathroom and pantry as it is considered high traffic area. These are needs to be cleaned almost daily as it is the the dirtiest area.

These are some of the important factors to consider when you are choosing the cleaning service provide for your office.

1. Price

Get price quotes from the companies in your city or area. When you get the quote, ask for a list of services that they provide.

Most basic they will need to provide mopping, vacuuming, cleaning, and sanitizing of the bathroom and dusting.

Cheap is usually not a good thing, a fair market range should be around RM20-30 per hour per worker. If it is too cheap, it usually means their worker is underpaid and had to skip their breakfast before work.

2. Professionally Trained Cleaner & Legal Workers

Be aware, 80% of cleaning service providers in Malaysia exploit illegal migrants and undocumented workers to work on a rm8 hourly basis and they are not professionally trained.

This can become a legal issue for your company if you hire these providers.

Ensure that they are documented or locals with IC, and they are also properly trained by a structured training program to ensure the quality and consistency of service.

3. Customer Service

How they attended to your enquiry and the promptness of their quotation and responses gives you a notion of their customer service in future.

Many cleaning services providers in Malaysia can’t even provide proper invoicing and quotation for your accounting purposes.

Some couldn’t pick up a call as the customer service is also the boss, who is also the van driver and who is also one of the cleaners.

4. Customisation of cleaning scope

You may have a 4-storey office building with 100 Staffs or a studio working space with 4 staffs working from home.

This dictates how many empty coke cans and ROTA snacks package to dispose around the office.

The cleaning services provider will have to visit your office to estimate the work and customize the package for your needs.

Past performance is an indicator of future performance. How long they’ve been in the market?
