Janitorial services often cause the largest number of headaches for companies in terms of facilities maintenance. Poor service, slow response times, and unprofessional experiences are very common within the industry of commercial janitorial services. That’s why City Wide is more than “just a janitorial company.” We are a sales and management company that wants to make sure your time spent on janitorial services in your building is on-task, efficient, and never results in un-emptied trash cans or dirty floors.

Advantages Of The Right Commercial Janitorial Services

Take a minute and look around your building. Is the cleaning up to your standards? What impression do you think your customers get when they enter your building? How does the state of your facility affect your employee morale?

Although often unseen, the commercial janitorial services happening within (or perhaps not happening) will have a major impact on the look and feel of your building. These services will give your customers their first impression of your company before you can even greet them at the door.

There are many reasons to ensure your facility is being kept up to a certain standard of cleanliness, from a safer, healthier work environment for your employees and visitors to economic reasons. Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider using a commercial janitorial service:

  • Professional appearance and presentation – A clean facility is inherently more trustworthy and comfortable for guests than a dirty one.
  • Employee Morale + Productivity – Your staff feels better when they work in a clean environment. A cleaner environment has also been shown to result in fewer sick days among employees, and in turn, higher productivity among your staff
  • Financial benefits – Consistent, reliable cleaning is cheaper in the long-run than costly one time repairs after years of neglect
  • Higher quality cleaning – A professionally trained janitorial service provides a higher quality cleaning than you can expect from your on-staff team
  • A safer environment – Frequent cleaning and disinfecting goes a long way to keeping your facility safe and free from harmful viruses and bacteria
  • More storage space – Many professional janitorial teams bring their own supplies, freeing up your facility’s storage space for other supplies

Poorly executed janitorial services can also negatively affect employee morale if the staff views the place they work at as dirty or in disarray. Not only is the look and feel of your facility a major consideration when assessing commercial janitorial services, but it is also essential for safety.

Debris left on the floor can easily become a tripping hazard. An uncleaned spill can quickly accumulate into mold. Excessive dust can have a negative health effect, especially on those with allergies and asthma – In fact, the EPA reports that poor indoor air quality is one of the top 5 contributors to human health concerns.

A janitorial company that is not working to the right standard means more than just putting up with a little more mess than you would like; you can be potentially opening up your business to liability.

Challenges In Finding the Janitorial Services for You

Commercial janitorial services are no place to skimp by with poor service. If your janitorial company is not working up to your standards, then it is time to make a change. Also, you may find you do not have the time to regularly keep in touch with the crew to verify they continue to do their job efficiently, thoroughly, and professionally.

Many employers choose to use their on-site staff as a makeshift janitorial team, with the hope that they will be able to perform these responsibilities on top of their normal day-to-day tasks. Unfortunately, this rarely works, and usually results in a messy, unsafe space for your workers and guests.

Professional commercial janitorial services are equipped to detect, sanitize and disinfect all of the places where germs spread within your facility. Over time, even the most well-meaning facility will be faced with janitorial challenges. The longer a facility remains open, and the longer one goes without a proper commercial janitorial service solution, the more difficult the job becomes.

That’s why it’s so critical to choose the right team for your facility – One that understands your specific janitorial needs and is equipped to provide the solutions you need to run a safe and successful facility.
