Commercial Cleaning Services vs Janitorial Cleaning Services

Though they sound similar, janitorial services and commercial cleaning services vary widely. Depending on what kind of business you run, knowing the difference between the two can help you figure out what cleaning system will work best for you and your work environment.

Most of us know that both janitorial services and commercial cleaning services are associated with cleaning and maintaining any property, but there is a significant difference between these two. Clean workplaces are critically important, but every business comes with its own standard of cleanliness.

Janitorial services include small and everyday cleaning tasks such as bathroom cleaning, emptying trash and dusting. These services can be performed daily, weekly or monthly. This is the routine, everyday cleaning that requires elbow grease and attention to detail – something that businesses commonly outsource to improve efficiency.

On the other hand, commercial office cleaning involves bigger tasks that are done every six months or annually. For example, regular vacuuming of carpet is a part of janitorial services, while deep carpet cleaning is part of commercial cleaning services. A commercial deep cleaning service might be useful (in addition to weekly janitorial service) before a large company event or prior to the sale of a space.

Below we have outlined the differences between janitorial services and commercial cleaning services in greater detail.

Janitorial Services

At Legacy Construction Cleaning, our janitorial services will take care of everyday cleaning duties and keep your workspace clean and well maintained on a regular basis. With consistent janitorial services, your office or facility will always look good and be ready for visitors, customers, and business associates. Companies tend to schedule janitorial services based on their needs, typically on a daily, weekly, or bi-weekly basis. If your company hires a janitorial service provider for office cleaning, you will be responsible for putting together the schedule and the cleaning tasks to ensure that the job is done to your satisfaction.

Janitorial services typically include all the general vacuuming, mopping, and disinfecting in your workplace in order to provide clean restrooms, offices, and other public areas. Dusting, cleaning tables, chairs and desks, sanitizing bathrooms, entrances, and emptying trash receptacles are typical duties included with a janitorial service. In some cases, janitorial teams can provide essential maintenance and repair services as well. Undoubtedly, some companies can manage this task with their own cleaning teams, but training and managing a janitorial crew requires experience that most companies don’t have. Combine that lack of experience with the rigorous schedules of janitorial staff, and you can see how difficult it is to manage and maintain a clean workplace.

With Legacy Construction’s Denver Janitorial services, you will experience less pressure, a higher quality of work, and fewer personnel management problems. Our staff is trained on standard cleaning practices and they come equipped with the proper products to keep a business clean. Most importantly, we will tailor our staff’s experience to your unique situation so that the cleaning teams can properly handle any situation.

We also have experience cleaning retail spaces, offices, churches, historical buildings, bars, MJ dispensaries, as well as Coronavirus sanitation and much more.

Commercial Cleaning Services

Commercial cleaning services cover large, heavy-duty projects such as deep carpet cleaning or complete cleaning of office upholstery. For these big-ticket projects, a business owner would likely have to plan when the work will be performed, as it has the potential to disrupt daytime business activities. Commercial cleaning services are typically performed only a few times per year, so these are more planned events. However, commercial cleaning services may also be used in an emergency, such as when an office floods or sustains other significant damage.

Commercial cleaning services go beyond daily cleaning to offer services such as deep cleaning of carpets, tile and grout cleaning, hard surface floor cleaning, window washing, power washing, and furniture or upholstery cleaning. Commercial crews can also offer a customized cleaning program. You can hire out commercial cleaners for various reasons, while janitors will focus on daily cleaning tasks.

Depending on the type of site or business you do work in, you may only need commercial cleaning services a few times per calendar year. A commercial deep cleaning might be necessary before a grand opening, before the sale or during the marketing of a property, or prior to an important event.

Look for a Business That Provides Both

We understand that not every business needs a janitorial service for daily cleaning, but most businesses do need commercial cleaning services at least a few times per year. At Legacy Construction Cleaning, we provide both services and more. Instead of working with multiple contractors, you can rely on us for all types of cleaning and disinfecting services.
