What Do Janitorial Services Do?

For most businesses it doesn’t make sense to hire full-time employees to manage the office cleaning and janitorial services.  Facility managers often hire local janitorial companies to clean their offices after regular business hours.  Hiring a janitorial company, the facility avoids the cost of employment taxes, training, time management and other benefits. 

Janitorial services manage the cleaning process of commercial facilities including private businesses and public buildings.  The general responsibilities of most janitorial services often include removing trash from waste receptacles, vacuuming carpets, sweeping floors, and cleaning bathrooms.  Other services can include:

•    Commercial tile stripping, waxing, and floor maintenance
•    Carpet Cleaning
•    Construction Cleanup
•    General Window Cleaning
•    High Rise Window Cleaning
•    Emergency Cleaning
•    One Time Cleaning.

These types of custodial services can be contracted for office cleaning, commercial building cleaning, industrial cleaning, and medical offices – the list is endless. 

If a company you're considering says they provide exceptional customer service and the ability to make the whole office shine, then that janitorial service company should be able to provide you with several references.  Talk to the references, visit their buildings and inspect the quality of the custodial services.  Ask yourself, would you want your facility cleaned by this company?

Choosing the right cleaning service for your facility can be a daunting venture.  What can quickly narrow down your selection is when you find a janitorial service that can tailor a specific site plan aimed at satisfying all of your cleaning needs. 

The best janitorial companies will be on top of everything.  Ideally your janitorial service will alert management to any maintenance issues such as trouble with the hot water, leaky faucets or pipes, and sinks and toilets that need replacing or repair. If you have bundled your janitorial services with a commercial facility maintenance service provider, the repairs can be made in a timely and seamless manner. 

Bundling Services
The cost of janitorial services and building maintenance is a concern for every commercial building owner and manager.   Ask your provider what other services their company offers and if bundling can save your facility any money.  Often commercial facilities can cut costs up to ten percent by bundling other commercial services.
