Nurturing Greatness – How A Commercial Cleaning Company Consistently Provides Higher Quality Business Cleaning Services

Everyone wants consistent, high quality business cleaning services, but they seldom think of evaluating the management team when deciding who to hire.

Sure, you can have a cleaning crew that does excellent work from time to time, but to have all your janitorial cleaning crews putting their heart and soul into the work day after day, month after month is very unusual.

Award Winning Commercial Cleaning And Janitorial Services

Over the past 30+ years Evergreen Building Maintenance has provided award winning commercial cleaning and janitorial services in Kelowna and the Okanagan region.

Gurmit and Rapinder Takhar started a carpet cleaning company in 1989.  They worked hard and built the company into a large, successful commercial cleaning business while raising a family and contributing to the community.

Today, Evergreen Building Maintenance has over 250 employees and is providing business cleaning services for hundreds of small and large businesses and government offices.

Simple, Effective Management Strategy

When there are only two people in the company, both being the owners, it is easy to provide good quality services.  But what do you do when there are ten, or twenty or a hundred employees?

Despite growing numbers, Gurmit and Rapinder always treated their employees as family.  Since the owners were treating them like family, all the managers treated their cleaning crews like family as well.

Being family, every employee feels like they are working in their own company, so they do the best cleaning they can possibly provide…just like the original owners did.

New Management Continues The Old Style

In 2017 their son, Ranjit and daughter Navjot took over the business and their parents retired.

Since the kids had always participated in the family business as they were growing up, it was a natural transition.

They had personally put in thousands of hours of cleaning work, hired and trained managers and employees as they were groomed to take over the company.

Ranjit Takhar, as CEO of the company is now continuing the management style of his parents.

The Art Of Managing From The Heart

Vandna Sharma started working with Evergreen Maintenance in 2017.  She worked hard and learned all the cleaning systems and protocols the company uses to provide superior business cleaning services for their clients.

After the company helped her get permanent residency in Canada, her parents came to visit from India.  They were greeted at the airport with bouquet of flowers from the CEO.  After a few days, the CEO himself, Ranjit Takhar, took the whole family out to dinner.

Each member of the Ranjit’s family took time out to send greetings and meet with Vandna and her parents personally.

Living in India, Vandna’s parents had been worried about how she would manage so far away, in a new country by herself.  But after meeting Ranjit and his family and seeing how they took care of their daughter, they were completely comfortable and proud of the company she is working with.

Taking a personal interest in the wellbeing of employees is completely natural in this company.  It’s the art of managing from the heart.

Personal And Timely Support For Management And Cleaning Crews

Vandna Sharma currently manages about 20 people in the company.  She feels confident in her job because she knows if she needs anything, help is just a phone call away.  The CEO, other managers and even the CEO’s parents are always available to provide whatever resources she needs.

This confidence flows into her responsibilities as manager.  She is able to make plans and promises to her employees that she knows she can keep. If she and her cleaning crews do a good job, she knows the upper management will notice and they will all be recognized and rewarded.

All the support and encouragement she gets from every level of the company gives her the mental space to be there for her employees when they have personal situations.  “It’s an easy, friendly atmosphere in the company for everyone”, says Vandna.

Detailed Training Means Better Commercial Cleaning Results

All new hires go through rigorous security clearances appropriate to the site.

Employees get on the job training to ensure the safety of the staff and they learn all the measures needed to ensure security of the building.

When Vandna gets a new person on her team, all the documents are ready on the first day.  She personally goes to the location with the employee, gives him or her a tour of the facility, where all the janitor’s rooms are, as well as the requirements and areas that need special attention.

Every building and office space is different.  Vandna personally reviews the facility with each member of the crew and provides a written orientation for that particular building.

If someone needs training on the correct way of operating equipment, handling bio-hazards, chemicals or special situations in the building, she personally trains and supervises the staff until she knows they can comfortably do the work flawlessly.

All employees under her care work as a team, supporting each other when extra work is needed or they need to take care of personal business.

In order to make sure all the work gets done properly, despite personal situations, Vandna has several employees available on a part-time, as-needed basis.

Regardless of whether the building needs special handling or someone gets sick, Vandna is always ready with fully trained staff to get the job done quickly and professionally.

Personally Rewarding Accomplishments

A couple of years ago Vandna hired Doug Kavanagh.  Doug is a young man who had experienced a rough time in past jobs due to his ADHD.  He moved from job to job, never feeling satisfied.

When Vandna started getting complaints from other staff and clients, she looked at the situation carefully and realized that he was actually a very intelligent, caring person.  There was no reason he couldn’t do the job.

After some experimenting, she developed detailed checklists and a special schedule for Doug.

The checklists allowed him the independence to work at his own pace and make sure everything got done.

His schedule was changed so he got a break from time to time so he could check his phone or do something else for a while, and then go back to concentrate on his cleaning duties.

Vandna found that Doug was very careful about doing things right and diligently made sure all his responsibilities were handled on time.

It has been more than a year now and Doug is one of her best employees.  He got a raise and recognition in the company and is being successful in his life.

A little caring in the training resulted in a great personal accomplishment for both Doug and his manager.

Consistently Great Business Cleaning Services

The seeds of greatness planted by Gurmit and Rapinder have grown into a large, fruitful tree.

Ranjit and Navjot have continued to build up the company and maintain high standards of cleaning for clients.

The caring and detailed training of each and every employee ensures that businesses will have a clean, healthy environment for their staff and clients.

Evergreen Building Maintenance is committed to helping businesses succeed in building their brand and profits by providing a good looking and fresh smelling facility where everyone can feel good and focus on their work.

Professional Church Cleaning Services

A Professional church cleaning services company can offer benefits your full-time or part-time janitor may not be able to provide.

If you don’t have a dedicated janitor for your church, consider hiring a church cleaning company instead of hiring someone directly.

Evergreen Building Maintenance understands how important it is to keep your church clean, sanitized, and disinfected.

It is important to keep high standards of cleanliness in a church simply because it is sacred.  People are coming in and out of the church throughout the week so you want to make sure everyone gets a clean and healthy environment for worship whenever they come.

Evergreen Maintenance guarantees your place of worship will look its best for every service and every event.  We provide a superior level of cleanliness for churches in all areas of your building including:

  • Seats and pews
  • Children’s areas
  • Washrooms
  • Classrooms
  • Entryway, lobby, and hallways
  • Kitchen
  • Event and eating areas
  • Entryway and lobby

You will have the peace of mind of knowing that you are providing church members both quality and value that makes a difference in their spiritual journey.

Here’s How We Can Make A Difference For Your Church

A Happier Congregation

An orderly space can put your congregants in a better frame of mind while they worship.

As they let go of their stress and clear their thoughts, your members will find it easier to meditate on what’s important.

Members Returning Every Week

Cleanliness plays a big role in helping people have and keep a positive frame of mind.  A sparkling clean facility supports the good feelings generated by your programs so you attract and retain more members.

Inspire Confidence and Inspiration

You know it.  A dirty, unkempt setting is not the most inspirational setting for members.

A clean, orderly, good-looking church can provide the right context for creativity and self-confidence in young people, especially in Sunday school and church preschools.

Healthier Parishioners

Professional church cleaning services give you confidence in knowing your facility is truly clean for your parishioners.

As a company with cleaning crews experienced in cleaning churches, we know we have to go beyond cleaning just the surface.  We make sure to thoroughly remove the dust, grime, and even germs and viruses.

Special “Green Cleaning” techniques, equipment, and environmentally friendly cleaning products make sure your parishioners don’t get allergic reactions and illnesses from harsh chemical residues.

Professional church cleaning crews work in accordance with all the CDC guidelines to keep parishioners safe. They take the extra care and attention needed to disinfect frequent-touch surfaces such as light switches, handles, and doorknobs so they do not become a source of spreading illnesses for several days at a time.

A Cleaner and Safer Kitchen

Many churches have kitchens for events or volunteers who prepare food for members of the community.

Kitchens serve an essential purpose, but unfortunately, they can also be the perfect spot for germs and bacteria to spread.

Sink faucets, oven handles, and refrigerators are surfaces where dangerous bacteria such as E. coli or salmonella can grow. Utensils, cutting boards, and cloth towels could unintentionally increase pathogens while preparing and serving food.

Instead of relying on volunteers to properly clean and disinfect after each use, ensure a safe cooking area by hiring a professional church cleaning services company.

A professional cleaning team will know how to deep clean your church kitchen with the appropriate products to prevent illnesses from spreading in your church and community.

Sparkling Clean Floors

There are so many people moving around in a church all week that it needs to be thoroughly cleaned regularly to prevent the spread of dirt and germs.

A professional church cleaning service will bring in high-performance commercial cleaning equipment including specialized vacuums, waxing machines, shampooing machines for the carpet and upholstery, electrostatic disinfectants, and more.

Regularly removing dust and mold from carpets and furniture before they have time to settle into the carpet will keep your church smelling fresh and inviting.

Healthy And Safe Childcare Spaces

Proper cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting are essential in a childcare setting.  Germs can quickly spread through the whole congregation, not just the children.

A professional church cleaning company will wipe down all the toys, play surfaces, mats and do an extra thorough job of cleaning the floors and carpets.

Church attendants will feel more secure leaving their children in rooms where they know have been cleaned thoroughly.  Knowing this will make young couples with children feel more secure about going to church and leaving their children to play while they attend service.

Impeccable Washrooms

Washrooms are an especially sensitive place.  Studies have shown that women especially and even men will stop shopping at a place where the washroom is dirty or smelly. By providing a clean, sanitary environment in the washroom people are more likely to continue coming back to church.

A professional cleaning company will take extra care to wipe down all high-touch surfaces including light switches, flush handles, doorknobs, and faucets, in addition to toilets, urinals, and the floor and wall around them.

Provide A Healthy, Clean Environment For Members

Cleaning doesn’t have to be another to-do item for volunteers when you hire a professional church cleaning service like Evergreen Building Maintenance.

Our church cleaning crews will ensure your whole building is flawlessly clean.  We will:

  • Ensure a clean and healthy environment for worship
  • Provide specialized window cleaning and wall washing
  • Focus on high traffic areas including sitting rooms, bathrooms
  • Thoroughly clean all types of floors, carpets, and furniture
  • Clean staff areas, break rooms, special rooms

You can confidently check cleaning off the list and concentrate fully on other details of your work.

How A Professional Office Cleaning Company Prevents The Spread Of Viruses

A professional office cleaning company can play a vital role in controlling the spread of viruses.

Every year people get sick from the flu and other viruses. When people are unable to report to work it causes millions of dollars of lost profits for companies in BC.

How Do Viruses Spread?

WebMd says “Viruses spread from person to person mainly in droplets that fly out when you cough or sneeze. These tiny drops from a sick person go through the air and land on the mouths or noses of others nearby.

Germs are also passed along when you touch mucus droplets from someone else on a surface like a desk and then touch your own eyes, mouth, or nose before you get a chance to wash your hands. Viruses like the flu can live 24 hours or longer on plastic and metal surfaces like cafeteria tables, doorknobs, and cups.”

Unfortunately, the flu virus isn’t the only virus that can spread easily.

The Spread Of Diseases In An Office Environment Is Worse Than You May Think

The BMC Infectious Diseases Journal published a study in 2006 saying “The most common nosocomial pathogens may survive or persist on surfaces for months and can thereby be a continuous source of transmission if no regular preventive surface disinfection is performed.”

This study was done in a hospital environment and shows the long-lasting power of severe, even deadly viruses. Shari Solomon, president of CleanHealth Environmental LLC, Silver Spring, Maryland says “Over the past few years, a number of infections that we always considered hospital-acquired infections, such as MRSA and C.diff (a bacterium that causes diarrhea and colitis), have become community-acquired infections, as well,”

Not only are superbugs becoming more resistant to antibiotic drugs. Antibiotic-resistant infections are typically spread when people touch a contaminated surface and then touch their mouth, eyes or nose.  This is why handwashing and cleaning of high-touch surfaces is imperative.

Offices Are Prime Locations For The Spread Of Diseases

The possibility of spreading disease is especially high in facilities where people live or work in close proximity to each other.

A growing number of people are choosing not to get vaccinated and showing up at work or school when they are sick.  This increases the risk of spreading the illness exponentially.

Professional Office Cleaning Solutions

Manual disinfecting methods have their limitations.  Commercial office cleaning company workers who are trying to conform to a schedule may miss contaminated surfaces or skimp on the time spent on cleaning due to scheduling pressures.

Technology Based Solutions For Disinfecting An Office

Innovative technologies combined with training programs on how to use the technology properly can provide safer, better coverage in a shorter period of time than traditional disinfecting methods.  For example:

  • Electrostatics can cover large areas and hard to reach surfaces quickly and efficiently.
  • In hospitals, copper-treated surfaces have been found to reduce a number of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs).
  • Chemicals remain on the surface for a much longer time when spraying disinfectants using electrostatics.

Non-Technology Based Solutions To Get Better Office Cleaning

Commercial janitorial services technology offers some great options for getting the best cleaning possible, but quite often what you need is an experienced cleaning professional with the right tools and training. Here are some examples of what to look for in a well-managed commercial cleaning company:

  • Custodial workers should be trained to identify cleaning areas that may not get enough attention in regular daily cleanings.
  • Cleaning hot-spots should get special attention based on a schedule instead of waiting for the dirt to become obvious before someone pays attention to it.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting should be done every day.
  • A more thorough, rigorous deep-cleaning should be scheduled on regular basis.
  • Schedule workloads for janitorial staff so they have enough time to give personal attention to areas based on their judgment.
  • Use “Green Cleaning” products instead of caustic disinfectants for sanitizing and disinfecting in the least toxic way.
  • Avoid bleach based cleaners which can cause irritation and respiratory problems.
  • If there is an outbreak of sickness spreading through the office, get a special “office deep cleaning” done asap! You’ll be surprised how quickly you can stop the spread of an illness.
  • Institute a color-coded system of microfiber to help prevent cross-contamination.

Professional Office Cleaning Company Offers Safer Alternatives

Although it is true that “people get sick all the time” a professional office cleaning company can do a lot to keep your staff and clients safe.

Advantages Of Working With A Commercial Janitorial Company With A Large Menu Of Services

A commercial janitorial company can only offer services based on the resources it has access to.  Resources can mean the number of employees available at any given time, their training level, specialized equipment, security clearance and more.

Most commercial cleaning companies only offer basic services for their clients.  If you have additional requirements you will have to send out an RFP, make phone calls, get quotes from several places, compare quotes and hopefully select the right company for the job.

As a facility manager you have a lot of responsibilities.  Any time you put into sourcing services means taking away time from something else.  Why not consider hiring one company that you know has a large variety of clients and all the in-house expertise you would ever need?

You already know that they provide a high standard of service and their prices are reasonable.  Anytime you need a non-basic service you can simply add that task to their weekly, monthly or daily duties.

Think of all the time and trouble you will save.  A large commercial janitorial services company with a variety of clients will have specialized, trained employees for anything you want to have done.  They will also have the right equipment to for the job.  If your task involves security clearance, they will have that also…already in place, without delay!

Having a working relationship with someone you trust goes a long way toward saving money, preventing accidents and most of all, your peace of mind.  You know the work will get done, on time, on budget and to a high standard.

Commercial Janitorial Company Services You Don’t Need Every Day Can Include:

  • Professional window cleaning
  • Floor stripping and waxing
  • Steam cleaning of carpets
  • Steam extraction upholstery cleaning
  • Stain removal
  • Snow removal
  • Ice removal
  • Parking lot litter removal and sweeping
  • Extra staff for emergency situations
  • Polishing stainless steel and metal surfaces
  • Cold and hot pressure washing
  • HVAC repair
  • Light construction jobs
  • Handyman services
  • Preventive maintenance

Evergreen Building Maintenance has over 30 years’ commercial janitorial services experience working with all kinds of businesses, both large and small.  Our clients include individual offices as well as entire office towers.  We serve individual retail shops as well as large shopping centres with hundreds of stores.  From the point of view of security clearance, our cleaning teams work in police stations, banks and government offices that require strict security certifications.

If you have an emergency situation, as our client, we will make sure you have enough cleaning staff available to handle any unforeseen circumstances.  On the other hand, if you have a special event coming up, we can easily provide extra staff for any time of day or night.

How to See Through The Hype And Hire A Reliable Commercial Office Cleaning Company

How Not To Hire The Wrong Commercial Office Cleaning Company

You want to hire the best commercial cleaning service, but how do you separate fact from fiction in the selection process?

We know it doesn’t cost much for a startup office cleaning company to get into the business and say they offer commercial office cleaning services.  Because of this, hundreds of new cleaning companies claim to offer “professional” commercial janitorial services.  That’s nice for them, but you need a reliable commercial office cleaning company that can deliver a high standard of cleaning consistently and reliably.

A fly-by-night operation can cause big problems for you in terms of safety, security and cost management.  They are often willing to provide a low bid and even work hard to fulfill your requirements.  But you don’t get experience and expertise overnight.  It takes time to learn how to do the job right.

The problem is, these same people are willing to stretch the truth and even fabricate “facts” in order to get the contract…potentially creating big problems for you and your company.

Cutting Through The Hype Of A Commercial Office Cleaning Company In The Bidding Process

So, what do you look for, so you can tell the difference between a legitimate, professional commercial office cleaning company and one that is going to cause problems for you?  Here are some simple questions to ask yourself:

  1. Does the prospective commercial office cleaning company have references from companies similar to yours from the past and currently active? If a company is used to smaller contracts, they will not know what to do in your company.  If they are used to larger contracts, they may not give enough importance to your company to provide a good service.
  2. Does their quote provide enough details to show they understand the expenses they are going to encounter in providing commercial cleaning services for your facility?
  3. Did they clearly show how they came up with the price? If they didn’t, are they going to surprise you with additional costs after they get started and realize they didn’t consider everything in their quote?
  4. Does the potential commercial cleaning services screen their employees on a regular basis for drugs and security issues? Are their security clearance papers up-to-date?
  5. Take time to meet the person who is actually going to oversee work in your facility and interview him / her.
  6. Does the commercial janitorial services company have at least five million dollar umbrella insurance to cover any excessive claims?
  7. Do they have documents they use for training that they can show you? If they are a small commercial office cleaning company, they won’t have the policies, procedures and training systems in place to be able to provide competent cleaning personnel on an ongoing basis.  Plus, the level of cleaning you get will not be consistent and is cause many headaches for you in terms of complaints from your staff or customers.
  8. Does a human being answer the phone when you call their office? Having a human being answer the phone can be an indicator that the company will take the time to address your needs quickly and efficiently instead of resorting to bureaucracy when you want to get something done.
  9. Are their safety training systems documented?

Asking these questions will help you get insight into whether or not you are dealing with an established, professional commercial office cleaning company.

Evergreen Building Maintenance has been in the commercial cleaning business for over 30 years.  They have seen many fly-by-night operators come and go…and in many cases, they have been brought in to clean up the mess created by unprofessional operators.

Professional Office Cleaning Company Improves Profits

A professional office cleaning company can help your staff be healthy, happy and successful.

No one likes working in a dirty, smelly environment. If your office environment is not clean people will feel stressed and success will be a struggle. You could lose good employees to your competition.

If a client sees that your office is dirty, it is an instant turn-off. It’s not the look of a professional, quality company. If you want to present a professional appearance you need a sparkling clean office.

A dirty office is also a source of sickness. Bacteria grows in unclean environments. It is common to see illnesses spreading in unclean offices.

People feel more relaxed in a clean office environment. When an office looks dirty, subconsciously, it causes stress levels to go up. Minor events become irritating and relationships suffer. Poor relationships is a major cause of low productivity for businesses.

Get A Professional Office Cleaning Company To Come In Often

Cleaning is the kind of thing people don’t care about until they notice uncleanliness. Then it becomes a big issue.

An office needs to be cleaned every day or nearly every day. Carpets need to be vacuumed, garbage needs to be taken out, surfaces need to be dusted and disinfected, washrooms need to be cleaned and sanitized, etc.

No matter how dedicated your staff, they are not likely to pitch in and clean the office.

A professional cleaning company can make sure your employees and clients are not turned off by dirt, soil and smell.

“Green” office cleaning companies use environmentally ‘safe’ cleaning techniques and products. Toxic chemical based products can trigger allergic reactions. More gentle, “green” products create a germ-free, safe environment for people with sensitive health issues.

Benefits Of A Professional Office Cleaning Company

  1. Employees require less sick leave because bacteria that causes illnesses is eliminated regularly.
  2. There is less employee absenteeism when the office is sparkling clean all the time.
  3. Visitors will have a positive feeling about your office when it is clean and fresh smelling.
  4. A clean, professional look is strong branding for your business.
  5. Professional janitorial services like surface cleaning, sanitation and disinfecting strategies go a long way toward providing a healthy working environment.
  6. Employee morale improves when the building is nice and clean.
  7. Infection Control through environmental janitorial services like surface cleaning, sanitation, and disinfecting strategies.

Commercial janitorial companies White Rock, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, BC

Commercial Janitorial Companies With Low Employee Turnover Provide Higher Value

A high employee turnover in commercial janitorial companies is a warning signal and potentially a security risk for you.

Commercial janitorial companies that treat their employees well tend to keep their employees for a long time.

Long term employees get good at what they do.  They get to know your building and can adjust their cleaning schedule to accommodate high usage periods.

They know what gets dirty or smelly more often.  Instead of you having to point out these kinds of things, long term employees in commercial cleaning companies already know, so:

  • Your building stays cleaner.
  • You get fewer complaints.
  • Your tenants are happy and
  • You have one less thing to worry about.

Commercial Janitorial Companies With Lots Of Familiar Faces Means A More Secure Facility

If you see a constant sea of new faces in your commercial cleaning crew, pay more attention to the situation.  Do they have access to areas with confidential information?  Are they adequately supervised by employees you trust?  Have they all gone through the security clearances properly?

New faces means people you don’t know are accessing your facility.  Familiar faces means you are working with people you know you can trust.

Long-Term Cleaning Company Employees Means Better Safety And Cost Savings

When employees are initially being trained they typically get less done in the same time compared to an experienced employee.  They are also prone to missing responsibilities.  It takes time to get into a routine where janitorial staff accomplish everything they need to, during their shift.

In addition to not being thorough, new employees are more likely to damage equipment and waste supplies.  So, if commercial cleaning companies can’t keep good employees for the long-term, it costs you money and the job is likely not done to your standards.

Excessive employee turnover commercial janitorial company staff reduces the value of what you are getting from your commercial cleaning company.

When A Commercial Janitorial Company Values Its Employees, You Get Better Value

Good management results in better cleaning.

When a company treats its employees well there is good morale in the company.  Janitorial staff take pride in their work.  They go the extra mile to make sure they have done a thorough cleaning.

Well Trained Cleaning Company Employees Are Happier

When a commercial cleaning company trains their employees in new ways of cleaning, new equipment and better, safer cleaning solutions, it shows up in the quality of cleaning.  Better trained employees produce better results in the same time period.  Environmentally safe cleaning products means less worries about health problems for the cleaning staff and for the people using the building.

Employees that are trained more often tend to stay longer because they find their work more interesting.  They feel like they are making more of a contribution.  Both of these are important factors in deciding to stay with the company instead of moving on.  It’s a sign of good management.

The Evergreen Building Maintenance Advantage

  • Evergreen Building Maintenance takes pride in the level of training they provide for their employees.
  • You’ll find many familiar faces year after year.
  • Many of their employees have the highest security clearance.
  • Management closely monitors safety practices and wasted supplies.
  • You can count on a consistent, high standard of cleaning from Evergreen Building Maintenance employees.

How The Right Commercial Cleaning Company Can Make Overall Building Maintenance Easier

A commercial cleaning company normally does not get involved in the overall building maintenance of a facility.

But whether your business caters to students in a dorm, office employees, patients in a medical facility, or travelers and guests in a hotel they will form an overall opinion about your company based on their experience of the physical aspects of the facility.

Initially, your customers expect quick and hassle-free parking.  When they enter the building they expect a clean, comfortable, and well-functioning building.  If they don’t get that, their attitude changes.

It’s important to make sure your building maintenance staff is trained to improve customer attitudes and provide great experiences for a long-lasting, positive impression of your company and facility.

When this occurs, they will leave with a positive experience.

Sometimes You Need More Than Just A Commercial Cleaning Company

Does your facility operate like clockwork? If you operate your facility by outsourcing each service to a different company you are going to end up wasting a lot of time.  It takes up valuable time to look for someone you can trust to deliver the standard of service required by your facility.  If you make a quick decision and just go with the most impressive looking sales presentation, you are likely to end up paying a high dollar and still, you may end up disappointed.

Outsourcing individual services to different companies demands more of your time supervising and explaining how your building works.

Consistency is another consideration.  If you have several companies you turn to for various needs, each will have its own staff turnover.  That means the quality of service is not likely to be consistent… then you are back at square one, trying to find a company that can provide the standard of service you require.

Ease Your Building Maintenance Burden With Seamless Care

Think of it this way:  If you hire an established, medium to large, experienced commercial cleaning company they will have much of the building maintenance expertise you will need from time to time.  You may not need building maintenance services every day, but a relatively large commercial cleaning company will have specialists “floating around” in the area that they can pull to provide the services you need.

Since this kind of commercial cleaning company is already working in your facility, their project manager will be familiar with the requirements of your building.  They will be able to orient and train the building maintenance person rather than you getting stuck with that task, when you could be doing other things.

You wouldn’t have to worry about consistency of service because the people looking after your facility will know what you expect.  They have been providing the standard of cleaning that you expect, so they will make sure their building maintenance people perform to that level.

Maybe its window washing, preventive maintenance or commercial handyman services. Or, it could be HVAC repair or light construction. If you already have a good relationship with your commercial cleaning and janitorial services contractor, why not work with them to coordinate other needs within your building? Skip phone calls, hiring, supervising and follow up with multiple service contractors and pass along this part of your business to a company you already have a relationship with that you trust.

Problem solved!

When you hire a commercial cleaning company look for their ability to do a variety of tasks, as a company, even though you won’t need all of their services every day.
