This Is Just What We Look to Include in a Commercial Cleaning Contract to Benefit Both Parties

  • Schedule of cleaning (weekly, bi-weekly, once)
  • Location of service
  • Date and time of service
  • Client contact information
  • Payment details, dates and deposit required
  • Whether the client or the service provider will provide equipment (i.e., vacuum) and supplies (i.e., paper towels).
  • Details of the services to be provided (specifically).
  • How the contract can terminate (i.e., with 30 days written notice) on either side.
  • Insurance requirements (including general liability and worker’s compensation)
  • Signatures of both the client and the service provider.

Remember that you should always have an attorney review any legal document that you sign or ask a client to sign.

Understanding your cleaning service contract will help you have a better relationship with the commercial service company you’ve hired and avoid unpleasant surprises in the future. The ultimate purpose of any contract is to establish fair terms for both your company and the commercial service contractor and create a positive relationship for both of you!
