With a seemingly endless pool of commercial cleaning companies out there, how do you choose the one that’s going to be best for you?
Of course, the first and most obvious qualities to consider are things like experience, reputation, scope, and customer service. However, another revealing—yet often overlooked—characteristic is whether or not they are a licensed contractor. While this does not always ensure high-quality work, more often than not, it is a reliable indicator.
Benefits of Hiring Licensed Contractors
- Competence—to receive a contractor’s license, contractors must pass the state competency test, and to pass this test, a certain degree of experience and expertise is required. Therefore, when you hire a licensed cleaning contractor, you are guaranteeing that you are getting an experienced and state-approved service.
- Insured and bonded—being a licensed cleaning company not only means the service provider is protected, but it also means that YOU are protected. This coverage often includes general liability insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, and other umbrella policies like bonding insurance, which guarantees that clients will not be at fault for unfavorable outcomes that come from the provided services. This is also to say that when you work with contractors with surety bonds, you can rest assured that if issues arise, your contractors have the funds to reimburse you.
