What is the Difference Between Janitorial and Maintenance Cleaning?

Janitorial services and maintenance cleaning are different types of professional cleaning services. These services each serve different purposes when it comes to maintaining the cleanliness and functionality of your business. Janitorial cleaning covers day-to-day cleaning tasks, while maintenance cleaning is the periodic tasks that include deep cleaning and preventative upkeep.

Janitorial cleaning primarily focuses on the daily cleaning tasks necessary to keep a space clean, inviting, and hygienic. This includes tasks such as sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, dusting, and restroom cleaning. On the other hand, maintenance cleaning goes beyond routine cleaning and involves specialized tasks aimed at preserving and optimizing your property’s overall condition. Maintenance cleaning may include tasks like deep carpet cleaning, hard floor maintenance, pressure washing, and other periodic cleaning tasks. These services are typically scheduled less frequently and require specialized skills and equipment.

Understanding the differences between janitorial services and maintenance cleaning will allow you to identify your specific cleaning needs and choose the appropriate services to maintain a clean, functional, and well-maintained environment. Stratus Building Solutions is proud to offer both of these services.

What are Janitorial Cleaning Services?

Janitorial cleaning is the list of essential tasks intended to maintain cleanliness, sanitation, and order within a business. These services, provided by a professional cleaning company, ensure that the business’s premises are clean and presentable. Janitorial cleaning services can include routine tasks such as:

  • Dusting
  • High-touch area cleaning
  • Mirror and reflective surface cleaning
  • Mopping
  • Restroom cleaning
  • Sweeping
  • Trash removal
  • Vacuuming

By hiring Stratus for your janitorial cleaning services, you can focus on your core operations while ensuring a clean and appealing environment for employees, customers, and visitors. Regular janitorial cleaning not only enhances the appearance of a facility but also promotes better hygiene, health, and productivity among occupants.


What are Maintenance Cleaning Services?

Maintenance cleaning services play a critical role in preserving and optimizing the overall condition of your business. Unlike routine janitorial cleaning, maintenance cleaning involves specialized and periodic tasks that go past day-to-day cleaning. These services focus on maintaining and extending the lifespan of various components within your building, including:

  • Deep carpet cleaning
  • Pressure washing
  • Stripping, waxing, and refinishing of hard floors
  • Window cleaning

Periodic maintenance cleaning services help prevent the deterioration of your business’s facility and restore its appearance. Regular maintenance cleaning not only enhances the aesthetics of your property but also contributes to its longevity, safety, and operational efficiency.
