Evergreen Building Maintenance Inc. is a dynamic organization aiming for excellence in every sector of building maintenance that we target. EBM currently provides commercial cleaning to more than 325 unique buildings in eighteen different municipalities. Our consistent growth can be attributed to providing efficient, high standard and up-to-date cleaning services. By laying the necessary groundwork, we have prepared for the adaptation to larger operations.
Our company’s reputation was built using a hands on philosophy – this meant making sure that any performance related concerns were addressed within the same business day. The difference between EBM and other corporations is that we do not franchise our services, we are fully owner operated. We also have regional managers and working supervisors who are available to attend to your requests.
Evergreen Building Maintenance Inc. has a first-class team and we intend on upholding our superior standards. Our team of managers has over 50 years of combined experience in the janitorial industry. This has helped us take ordinary employees and transform them into leaders.
Some key points which differentiate our staff include:
- All of our staff members are provided with company uniforms and photo identification

- All of our staff members undergo thorough safety training including WHMIS certification
- All of our staff members are provided with the necessary protective equipment to perform their duties

EBM encourages employees to be PROactive rather than REactive. Trying to avoid problems in the workplace before they occur is a key part of this process.
In order to ensure consistent service, we have Cleaning Assessment Sheets that are implemented on a weekly or monthly basis, depending on the scope of the contract. While grading is passed on to supervisors, employees are provided with constructive feedback on how to continually improve cleaning standards.

Evergreen was hired by the District in July 2012 to perform custodial maintenance in our multiple office facilities. The service that we have received has been very good, and we have found that Evergreen’s management team has been efficient at addressing any issues that have arisen. Communication between the District and Evergreen has been effective and timely. Based on this service, we would certainly consider hiring Evergreen again to conduct our required building maintenance and can certainly recommend their services to others.
Evergreen Building Maintenance has provided janitorial services for our Park Washrooms for the past 15 years. Park washrooms in the mid 1990’s were a significant problem for the City and we used to receive hundreds of complaints per year. Today, Evergreen provides excellent service for our Park washrooms and we have also received compliments for the cleanliness of our park washrooms during significant park events. The number of complaints we receive are minimal and often not a result of the janitorial services from Evergreen. I am very satisfied with our contractor and I hope that our relationship will continue in the future.
I am writing this letter to say thank you to you and your team. I have had several maintenance companies in the past few years, but none compare to the incredible quality of work done by your company! When I assumed the management position at our retail store, it was in dire need of floor work. The black marks were driving into the floor over the past 3-5 years. I did not think that the floor would ever look like new, but at least it would get a little cleaner. I was wrong. My staff and I could not believe our eyes when we walked into work on Monday morning. Evergreen made our floors look brand new and even our customers noticed the difference.
Evergreen Building Maintenance has been under contract with Royal LePage Kelowna since April 2006. Over the years, they have delivered a dependable service and any issues have dealt with in an efficient manner.
Evergreen Building Maintenance has provided janitorial services for the City of Kelowna since 2003. Contracts were awarded for Kelowna City Hall, City Works Yard and Parks Department under my area of responsibility. I have found Evergreen to be reliable and respond to any issues in a timely manner. I would recommend them for any janitorial services of similar environment.
Evergreen Building Maintenance has carried out the janitorial duties for our church since September 1995. Their tasks have involved carpet/upholstery cleaning, marmoleum floor stripping, sealing and general maintenance. We have always found their work to be satisfactory and do not hesitate to recommend them.
Evergreen was hired through our Facilities Management Team to perform custodian maintenance in our BC Hydro Administration Office and has proven to satisfy the cleaning needs for our facility on a consistent basis. Based on Evergreen’s service, we would definitely recommend them.
I wish to thank Evergreen Building Maintenance Inc. and its team for providing excellent quality custodial service over the last year. They have performed extremely well in meeting the unique and challenging demands that our 32,291 square foot school presented. Results speak for themselves and Evergreen Building Maintenance’s proactive approach to managing our account has reduced cleaning deficiencies significantly over previous janitorial contractors.
Evergreen Building Maintenance is always very responsive to any and all concerns of our tenants. BLJC is a demanding tenant with quality service requirements and Mr. Takhar attends to any item we request in a timely and reliable manner. We are very pleased with the services and quality provided by Evergreen Building Maintenance and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
Evergreen Building Maintenance consistently meets and exceeds the expectations laid out in the contract for the Town Hall buildings. Oliver’s main town hall building is a heritage building, over 90 years old; in which the community has a strong sense of pride.
