NEVER hire a janitorial service without first checking up on some references from them. Find out as much as you can from the references. Ask them how they found the company, how long they have been working with them, and how satisfied they are.
Proper training will ensure you get the best quality of service for your money. Training is also important to prevent scratches on surfaces, vacuum bumps along walls, and other damage to your property. Ask your cleaning company how often they train and retrain cleaners in the best industry techniques.
I’ve raved so much about the great service the company has provided that several of my friends have used the company as well. One of my friends recently bought a house, and the company sent out a team to clean her old apartment and freshen up her new house prior to her move-in date. Another acquaintance was building his own home, and had the company come in to do construction clean-up. When my neighbor was getting ready to paint the exterior of his house, the cleaning service came out to do pressure washing. I even referred the service I use to my boss, who ended up hiring them to do office cleaning. But I was most shocked when my friend Kristie – the one who loves to clean – asked me for the company’s number so they could help her with spring cleaning.
4) TRAVEL AND VACATIONS – You can deduct the majority of any trip if you can link it to your business. The catch is you have to be doing business on the first and last day of your trip. Keep all receipts and document what you are doing for business.
ENTERTAINMENT AND MEALS – You can deduct any 50% of meals that are being used for your business. Whether it is entertaining a prospect or making a sales presentation. If you have a business party at your home, you can deduct the entire cost of the party. Make sure the party is for a business purpose and document it well.
Window training – It is much nicer to view outside your office if you have a clean window. You will see the big difference once you get your window clean, you can see the lights coming out your window if it is clean.
Cleaning of Carpets and Upholstery items: the cleaning company will clear up the spots and stains from the carpets by rinsing them well and then groom them in order to dry them. All this is done by having a pre-inspection of your premises.
And of course, you would never know who decided not to come in to begin with. So make a difference and start taking care of the whole of your business today.
