So, we've put together a list of our most frequently asked questions (and answers) to help answer any concerns you may have.
What are the benefits of hiring a professional cleaner instead of doing it myself?
Hiring a professional cleaner for your business can be a great way to take care of your cleaning needs, but it's important to know exactly what you're getting into before you decide to go ahead with the process.
Have more time
When you hire a professional cleaner, you don't have to worry about the time, effort, or supplies required to make your space look good. You can focus on your business and let us handle the cleaning!
Got everything you need
We've got everything we need to take care of your space: the right equipment, expert training, and a deep understanding of how to get the job done right. We'll work with your schedule and help you prioritize what needs to be done first so that you can get back to doing what matters most: running your business.
When you hire a commercial cleaning company that has the experience, they're going to know what kind of cleaning products will work best in different spaces and different situations. They'll also have an idea about how long certain types of jobs should take and how often they need to be done throughout the week or month depending on how much traffic comes through each area (like bathrooms). That means they're going to do an effective job every time without wasting any time or effort trying new things out and your business will look amazing!
What's the difference between a deep clean and a regular clean?
That's a great question! The short answer is that a deep clean is designed to get your business back to its original condition, while a regular clean keeps it looking good for longer in between deep cleans.
Regular cleaning is designed to keep your space looking good for as long as possible. It doesn't get into the nooks and crannies or remove stains, spills, or smells that can build up over time.
A deep clean is more thorough than a regular clean. Making sure all surfaces and crevices are attended to and will go deeper into the fibres of your carpet or upholstery. Your space will look like new again.
Are hand dryers or paper towels better?
It depends on what you're trying to accomplish with your restroom.
Hand dryers are great for getting rid of excess moisture and drying hands quickly, but they can be noisy and aren't as environmentally friendly as paper towels.
Paper towels are quieter, more eco-friendly, and easier on your wallet in the long run, but they take longer to dry hands and may not work well if someone is just doing a quick splash-and-run in the restroom. Read more here
Does Green FM offer 24-hour emergency services?
Yes, we do!
We understand that sometimes accidents happen out of your control and you need to clean them up quickly.
That's why Green FM currently provides 24-hour commercial cleaning emergency services for existing customers.
But don't despair—if you're in a cleaning fix, give us a call. We might be able to squeegee you in!
Can I use my own cleaning products instead of your company's?
We've been in the business for a long time and have found that our products work best when they're used alongside each other. Our eco-friendly cleaning solutions are specially-formulated to work together and produce the best results possible.
Using the right products is also important for the safety of our cleaners, and it also helps us maintain a high-quality standard of cleaning.
Our products are designed to be most effective on the surfaces we clean, and if you use a different product that isn't formulated for those surfaces, you risk damaging them or leaving behind residue that can cause damage over time.

We'll set up a free consultation to discuss exactly what type of cleaning supplies are best for your business, and we'll also give you recommendations on how to keep those supplies safe and organised so they're easy to find when needed.
How often should I schedule a professional cleaning service for my business?
There's no hard and fast rule for this—different businesses have different needs.
But generally speaking, we recommend scheduling a professional cleaning service at least once per month. But you should take into account the size of your business, the types of floors you have, and the number of employees that are there.
The longer it goes between professional cleanings, the more likely it is that you’ll have to deal with a buildup of dirt and grime in your facility.
You may want or need more frequent visits to keep your business looking its best, attracting new clients and keeping current ones happy.
How do I make sure that my employees can keep their workstations clean without being overwhelmed by the task?
You've got a great team. They're hard workers, they're smart and dedicated, and they care about the work you do. But what happens when the cleaning of their workstations gets overwhelming?
