Mould is one pervasive issue that can have far-reaching consequences for your health or the health of your employees.

Is the carpet in your office looking worn and stained? It might be time to start researching the top carpet cleaners in your area. Doing your homework to make sure that you find the perfect company is essential. However, many business owners and managers aren’t sure how to go about finding the perfect cleaning company.
If you’re thinking about hiring a carpet cleaner, here are the top questions you want to ask before you pay your deposit:
What Cleaners Do You Use?
While you may not know the technical reasons for choosing one cleaning company over another, this is still an important question to ask. Some people will want to favour green cleaning solutions over harsher commercial cleaners. However, you should always steer clear of certain ingredients, such as acids, that can strip carpets and expose your employees to strong chemicals.
You won’t need a degree in chemistry, but you should do some preliminary research on the types of cleaners a company uses before you make a hiring decision.
Do You Have Referrals?
You don’t want to trust the cleanliness of your office to just anyone. Before you hire anyone, you should ask if the carpet cleaning company can offer you any referrals. Always try to touch base with at least one or two of their previous clients to ensure that they were satisfied with the services they received before you book your next project.
Are You Bonded and Insured?
Do you know what would happen if a carpet cleaner was injured on the job? What about if they accidentally ruined some expensive equipment in the office? Don’t take any chances when it comes to being on the hook for damages caused by your cleaning service. You always want to ensure that they are bonded and insured before allowing them to proceed with work in your office.
Will You Move Furniture?
Odds are that your office space has lots of clutter in it, from desks to file cabinets. Knowing what the company is willing to move, if anything, is important. If you’re responsible for moving all of the major furniture pieces, you may have to make arrangements with a moving company or your office maintenance team.
How Long Does It Take?
You want to minimize downtime in your office, so you need to know how long the cleaning process is likely to take. Some companies may prioritize getting things done in a single day, while others may require two to three days to complete the same job. Managers will want to know how to schedule their employees and carpet cleaners so that work is minimally disrupted.
