A property manager’s job is never done… at least that’s how it seems. Day in and day out, the property manager is responsible for the appearance of their floors and carpet throughout all of their buildings.
By hiring the right floor care contractor, you can rest assured that it will be done properly and on schedule.
But what happens when you hire the wrong floor care and maintenance company?
You could run into the three top problems property managers face…
- Lack of communication
As in all relationships, communication is the key to harmony.
You need to know exactly what jobs have been done. You can’t waste time tracking your floor cleaning contractor down for status reports. You already have a full-time job. You shouldn’t have to be the supervisor of the floor care crew.
If you notice the floors and carpeting are no looking their best, it may be because the floor care company’s personnel don’t have the proper training. Or they may not have the right kind of equipment. Or maybe the company just doesn’t care enough to provide excellent customer service.
Whatever the reason, your neck is on the line if the building tenants or building owner isn’t happy with the building’s appearance. So make sure the floor care company you hire trains their workers thoroughly in the proper techniques and procedures for the job.
You are in charge of a building full of expensive interior assets. The last thing you need is for a floor care company to ruin them by using the wrong equipment, the wrong chemicals and the wrong methods. A bad company could not only ruin your floors, but could also make you look bad in the eyes of your clients, your boss and building owner.
Hire a floor care company that follows the manufacture’s recommendations and proper equipment to do the job. One that trains their personnel in the proper chemicals to use and how to use them. And finally, hire a company that stands behind its work with a guarantee to meet your specifications consistently and to correct any errors promptly.
SO… How can you AVOID these problems?
