Yes, newer companies may demand less money but if you ultimately end up being dissatisfied with their work, then it's of no use.
List of services
Always be upfront with the people you want to hire and ask for their list of the services that they can offer. Starting from vacuuming, dusting, cleaning the bathrooms, many may include other services like carpet cleaning, mopping. You would also know, whether they would be able to provide you with whatever additional services you require.
The employees of the cleaning service should be well experienced and maintain proper etiquette while working. They should be tidy and trustworthy, capable of handling machinery like vacuum cleaner and vapour mops. Also, in case of absence of one worker, the cleaning company should be able to send someone else instead, who would be equally capable of doing the job.
You should carefully go through the contract before signing anything. If you are unsure about something or want to renegotiate the terms and conditions, then never hesitate to do so. Since, once signed, there will be no backing out of it. Under such circumstances, see if you could get a one month trial period, if possible, before finalizing the deal.
Background check on the cleaning service

Before entering any sort of agreement, make sure to do a thorough background check on the cleaning service and its employees to protect your home or workspace. After all, the cleaners would be getting acquainted with your home or office after starting their work. You need to be positive regarding their reliability. It is important that you choose a reputed cleaning service, as this is reflected as part of your commercial environment.
