Janitorial services relate to commercial property cleaning, including professional offices, educational, medical and industrial business cleaning. Some commercial janitorial services can include maintenance or property management services. Those who perform the work are referred to as custodians, janitors or cleaners.
When it’s time to hire commercial cleaners, it is important to know about the different types of professional cleaning services available.
Janitorial Services versus Commercial Cleaning Services
Housekeeping refers to consumer home cleaning services. They are primarily residential maid services and typically do not clean commercial properties of any sort.
Commercial cleaning, on the other hand, specializes in providing janitorial services for business properties in a variety of industries. Certain commercial cleaning services can further specialize in specific industries or in the types of services offered.
What Type of Professional Cleaning Services Do You Need?
What types of services are you needing from your janitorial service company?
What type of property is needing the professional cleaning service?
How often are you needing custodial services?
These questions help determine what type of office cleaning and maintenance service you will be looking for. Some companies specialize in certain business types, such as healthcare or medical office cleaning, while others only do pre and post construction cleans. Some janitorial service providers only focus on cleaning and sanitation, while others offer a full range of property managed services. Finally, some professional cleaning companies will offer one time cleans, while others provide an on-going program for regular maintenance.
By knowing exactly what you are wanting to have managed, the type of building (including mixed use), and the frequency, you will be more easily able to narrow down the right janitorial service provider.
Types of Building Maintenance Services
Standard commercial cleaning companies provide cleaning of carpets and floors, restroom sanitation, dusting, wiping of desks, walls and switch plates, kitchen/breakroom cleaning, trash removal and window cleaning. Further, janitorial services can include industry specific and expanded service cleaning for education facilities, healthcare or medical cleaning, or industrial cleaning.
Education Facility Cleaning Services
Whether a childcare center or university, it is important to have a safe learning environment free of sanitation concerns. Commercial spaces equate to lots of hands on door knobs, lots of shoes tracking in dirt and the potential for significant bacteria. Professional janitorial services use state of the art cleaning techniques and health conscious products to sanitize the learning spaces for our students and educational staff.
Medical and Healthcare Cleaning Services
Healthcare facilities are everywhere, inviting all who are sick or seeking preventative care to be seen. A sterile environment is critical, which is why medical cleaning services focus on patient safety to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses and to prevent cross-contamination.
Special training is required for janitorial services who provide cleaning services to health and medical offices.
Industrial Cleaning Services
Industrial cleaning is specialized and usually requires a site visit in order to understand the precise cleaning needs of the business. Machines, equipment and even detailed cleaning from top to bottom can all be addressed in a customized plan. Maintenance and other property management services can be included as well to support all the upkeep needs on the property.
Construction Cleaning Services
Construction cleaning services are another area of specialty that includes “rough” cleaning after framing, electrical and plumbing are done and inspected. Completed before and/or after sheetrock installation, construction cleaning is designed to prepare the area for final touches such as installation of systems furniture, machinery, painting, flooring, lighting or more. Final cleaning can be done as well once all work is completed, prior to tenant move in.
