Your business needs an experienced and thorough cleaner, and just as important, one you can trust. Most businesses hold confidential customer information and are concerned with the general security of their premises and contents. So, outsourcing your cleaning requirements to a company you can trust is important, not only for your business but also for your valued clientele.
We’ve outlined a few important checks that you can request and shared some tips on questions and research you can do, when considering a cleaning company for your business:
Working with Vulnerable People Checks
Anyone working in close proximity to children, will need to have valid and approved Working with Vulnerable People check. This means that any cleaners hired to work in schools, child and youth services, child care centres, medical clinics (or any other business where there is contact with anyone under the age of 18) will need to have this check in place. The Working with Vulnerable People Checks are valid for 3 years.
Note: They are currently looking to extend this check to include vulnerable adults, which would then include anyone working with businesses in the disability and aged care sector.
For more information on the Working with Vulnerable People check visit the Tasmanian Government Consumer, Building and Occupational Services website.
Police Record Check
This check verifies identity as well as lists any criminal offences or traffic infringements. While you might not mind if your cleaner has a few unpaid parking fines, it’s important to know that their criminal record is clean – and they are who they say they are. A police check is not mandatory for a cleaner, but we recommend one should be requested and scrutinized, before hiring a cleaner for your business.
All cleaners employed at Bennett Cleaning Services have current Working with Vulnerable People approval and have had a Police Record Check. You can feel confident that our cleaners are trustworthy with your business records and assets.
Check Independent Reviews
It’s worth checking references and any independent reviews available from previous customers to further gauge the cleaner’s trustworthiness and professionalism.
Who will do the Cleaning?
It’s a valid question! Make sure that the person that you have verified as trustworthy to clean your business is actually the one sent on the day to do the work.
