The Differences Between Janitorial Services and Commercial Cleaning

Are you worried that the cleaning needs of your commercial building aren't being met? Do you fear that your lack of thorough cleaning is sabotaging the quality of your building? If so, then you need to hire janitorial services and commercial cleaning for your situation.

One common misconception is the belief that janitorial services are the same thing as commercial cleaning. However, they both have different duties, both of which are extremely important to your business operations.

See below for an in-depth guide explaining the differences between janitorial services and commercial cleaning services, and why you need them both for your company.


What Are Janitorial Services?

Quick! What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word "janitor". The odds are that you're envisioning a guy in a janitorial uniform with a mop in his hand. You aren't far off!

When we in the industry say the term "janitorial services", we're referring to all of the cleaning tasks that need to be done regularly. Things like mopping floors, scrubbing toilets, cleaning sinks, sweeping the floors, switching out trash cans, and so forth.

Each of these tasks should be done daily. That might seem tedious at first, but it's for the best. For example, not taking out your trash each night could lead to a pest control issue. It will invite unwanted bugs and rodents inside your building/office.

As if meeting your company's demand wasn't hectic enough, leaving your office's cleanliness up to you and your staff can take your focus off of what's important.

Hiring a janitorial service for these tasks can benefit you in several ways. It can help you take those responsibilities off of your plate. It can also give you access to experienced staff to ensure your property is thoroughly cleaned each night.


What is Commercial Cleaning?

Now you understand the basics of what janitorial cleaning services are. They're a staff that is dedicated to performing all daily cleaning tasks to reduce the spread of germs and illness on your property.

So if that's what janitorial services are, what do we mean by "commercial cleaning". Commercial cleaning generally refers to a service that can perform larger cleaning tasks that only need to be done once every few months.

For example, your property might need commercial painting, carpet cleaning, pressure washing, floor polishing, post-construction cleanup, and so on.

All of these fall under the category of a commercial cleaning task. While they don't need to be performed as frequently as janitorial services do, it's still important to have them performed by a professional.

For example, pressure washing the outside of your commercial property can help you avoid things like mold growth, paint discoloration, the spread of germs, as well as keep your property looking clean and inviting for your clients.

Here's the key: these need to be performed by experienced professionals. Not doing so can sabotage the results you're getting. Using the pressure washing example again, an inexperienced user might use a washer with too high of PSI, which can lead to damage to your property.
