Is anyone still cleaning offices even though they’re closed??

I’ve just done one, but not sure if I should be doing them!

will I even get paid?? 
 

it’s like I’m going to work out of habit.
 

So much uncertainty. 
 

please only reply if you do commercials. Thanks!

I'm on shutdown but might go back in May. I will ask all commercial customers if they want doing before I do them.

Some of my shops are closed,so not doing them, but I'm not working anyway, probably best to contact any customer domestic/commercial, as you will save yourself time n money, I know a couple of commercial window cleaning companies and they are shut down.

Aye, Don't want to put a damper on things but even after its lifted folk will be reluctant to visit a pub or restaurant. It will take some time for the confidence to return.

We just cant allow yourself to think like that mate. Everyone will understand itll take months until regulatory happens with just about everything. 

 

All you can do is inform them all but your smart and sure you've already got a plan

I am looking at every commercial job individually.

All shops, pubs and restaurants are on stop even if I haven't made or had contact with them.Some management companies have given the ok to go ahead others have said stop till further notice.The same goes for offices some have said stop the rest I am contacting to confirm and offering external cleans only.

I contacted one on Monday which I do which is very big. I need a PO number before any work can be carried out and explained no inside work could be done but outs can.I expected them to cancel or postpone the clean but they gave the go ahead even though the office is all closed up at present.

I would say ask them first and see what they say. I would say about 95% of my commercial work has stopped now and the remaining 5% are only having outsides done.

What I will be left with I don't know as I guess some companies will fold. I was looking into going completely commercial last year for myself but instead ive expanded the domestic side of the business. Eggs in baskets comes to mind 😞

Every job will be different as some are still open and some aren't depending on what the normal protocol is for certain sites, I know of a factory that is still operating to fulfil orders util they have no parts left, a custy of mine does ground works and has work lined up that he could do as he would be working alone on the edge on an industrial site but has to typically sign into a site and get a visitor pass and so on so this makes his big job a no go. 

Spoke to one of my neighbours yesterday who is working in factory he had a job overrun so was clocking out later than usual got to the area to clock out and there was 7 lads sat having there bate all very close together, some people ain't using their common sense, he grassed them up, they were also sat in an area with camera covering the area 🙄

I don't envy you at all having the challenges you face moving forward, I think the distancing will go on for possibly 6 months plus in various forms or stages to avoid the virus becoming and overwhelming issue again and measures will have to be taken by all businesses to be on the ball with hygine procedures, one of my custys owns a hairdressers and he was saying he thinks it will become more common place to have hand sanitiser dispensers outside all business premises I am inclined to agree.

There is still a lot of soap dodgers up here so they would probably nick both the sanitiser and dispenser.
