How to Hire the Right Company for Coronavirus (COVID-19) Deep Cleaning

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , .

Business and community leaders have a lot of pressure on them right now. Dealing with the COVID-19 crisis has been a strain on everything from finances, HR, logistics and beyond. During these challenging times it is important that we have expert resources that we can rely on. This even includes the cleaning industry which seems more important than ever right now. This blog is to help business and community leaders figure out how to hire the right company for coronavirus (COVID-19) deep cleaning at their facilities.

Buyer beware when hiring any old company for cleaning coronavirus

The motivation for this blog came from a conversation I had with a gentleman a couple weeks ago. He called the Soil-Away office to get my thoughts on “jumping” into the coronavirus cleaning business. “I just bought a fancy fogger machine and some cleaning chemicals,” he told me. “I am ready to start disinfecting buildings.” Cringing, but trying to remain composed and respectful, I asked him what he did prior to getting into this business. His response: paving.

I love entrepreneurship and highly encourage it. I also love people’s ability to identify a problem and try to solve it. However, I also value expertise and experience. Especially in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. While cleaning is not rocket science, cleaning and disinfecting buildings for infectious diseases is a different animal. As you look for the right partnerships to help support your organization during the COVID-19 crisis, be cautious of who you are working with. Are you about to hire someone who “just bought a fancy fogger machine” or a company that is fully trained and certified to deal with a very serious problem?

Top qualifying questions to find the right cleaning contractor

With many people jumping into the “coronavirus cleaning gold-rush” right now, you must be extra thorough in screening your contractors. With any crisis comes the risk of scams and unscrupulous people looking to take advantage of the dire situation. Most peoples’ intentions are good, but you still must do your due diligence. Here are some simple, but important questions to ask before you hire a company for coronavirus (COVID-19) cleanup services.

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • What certifications do you have?
  • What training have you been through?
  • Are you properly insured to do cleaning for infectious diseases?
  • What is your process for background checks on employees?
  • What is your cleaning process?
  • What products to you use?
  • What is your process for quality assurance?

Coronavirus cleaning services: one-size-fits-all versus consultative partnership

As a consumer, do your best to identify an expert company versus one just selling a “one-size-fits-all” solution. There is no magic bullet for fighting battle against coronavirus in our facilities. It is advisable to find a company who does a proper needs assessment and offers options. Every organization has a different situation and a customized plan should be developed. It does not have to be complicated or exorbitantly priced. It does, however, need to employ common sense, expertise and deliver results. That is the best way to navigate through a pandemic such as COVID-19.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
