I’m a BIG FAN of using office cleaning checklists. They keep your company focused on the task at hand, not allowing you to miss the details that make customers unhappy.
They also have the added benefit of keeping your staff accountable. If employees are required to follow an office cleaning checklist every time they clean, then there can be no excuses as to why something was missed. After all, they dated and signed it!
Customers also LOVE the fact an office cleaning checklist is being used.
Why? Because it goes to the heart of a concept called “perception”. In a nutshell, what the customer “perceives” BECOMES “reality”. This is how the process works. From the “customers eyes”, when you use a cleaning checklist it makes them feel like a “system” is being employed in their office, by you and your cleaning crew.
This means you are not just roaming around cleaning up what “looks like” needs attention, you are actually CLEANING each and every time out (because you are following the office cleaning checklist). This plants the seed that your company is different.
Making your company different from the rest is KEY TO GETTING ACCOUNTS. This is because the more you seem different, in a good way, the better off you will be, it’s as simple as that.
As you can see, a lot of very good things comes out of your use of a checklist. Needless to say, I use office cleaning checklists all the time in my cleaning business. This isn’t just a technique for a newcomer, it’s for the seasoned pro too.
The office cleaning checklists are available below. Keep in mind that there is no one size fits all approach to creating one. Every job has nuances that require a little customization in the form.
I’ve made two different versions of the checklist available. The first one is in PDF Format. It’s perfect for those of you who can use the checklist “as is”. The second checklist version is in OpenOffice Format, and is easily edited if you have the OpenOffice program.
