WORKING WITH PROPERTY MANAGERS
Clean and Green Solutions loves working with property managers, homeowners associations, and commercial property owners. We provide exterior cleaning services for shopping center plazas, business centers, restaurants, banks, apartment and condominium complexes, pool deck and clubhouse areas, as well as neighborhood playgrounds. Our experience with property managers and HOAs has taught us many lessons. We share them here so that these working relationships can be strengthened and improved.
LESSONS LEARNED FROM WORKING WITH PROPERTY MANAGERS
First, respond to communications quickly. Property managers and HOAs appreciate a timely response. They are working under deadlines and are responsible for submitting proposals to various boards for review. Those boards have meetings at set times, beyond which, it is too late to submit a proposal for consideration. It is important to remember that a pressure washing service organization is usually not communicating directly with decision makers.
Secondly, great patience is required. Individuals have the capacity to make decisions quickly, but boards take time making decisions. They are working with many moving parts such as budgets and spending regulations, and unforeseen circumstances that pop up overnight. There are also requirements for certain thresholds to be met when approving a proposal. Some boards need a majority vote, while others need a super majority vote to approve the proposal. This depends on their bylaws and governing documents.
Finally, property managers and HOAs demand results that exceed expectations of many persons. When a pressure cleaning service cleans a residential home, there are really only one or two people that need to be pleased with the results. Property managers and HOAs are dealing with many, many more people who will judge the results. A very large number of homeowners may end up evaluating a clubhouse, pool deck or entry monument. A very large number of customers may end up evaluating an office or apartment complex, a strip plaza or business center, or a shopping mall or restaurant. This is why it is imperative that only pressure washing service companies with extensive experience, highly trained technicians, and professional grade equipment endeavor to clean these large campuses and properties.
