What Do Janitorial Services Include?

Will Hunting, Argus Filch, Joe Dirt, and Carl Reed. What do these names have in common? These characters in famous movies portray—drumroll please—janitors.

Traditionally, janitors are depicted mopping floors or emptying trash, which is a part of the job. But just like the characters in these movies have more depth, there is so much more involved than just those tasks. While it is certainly not glamorous, it is vital in any business or commercial building.

Let’s break down what these unsung heroes do and why they are essential to keep a business functioning.

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.

Commercial Cleaning vs. Janitorial Cleaning

At Stratus Building Solutions, we know that keeping your place of business clean is a top priority. It serves to make a good first impression to visitors, keeps employees productive, and prevents the spread of germs. Even though “clean” is one word, there are actually a wide range of tasks and jobs that go into the act of cleaning. When hiring a professional cleaning company, there are also different terms that have different meanings regarding the service you are receiving.

What Are the Three Tiers of Cleaning?

Understanding the distinctions between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting is crucial for maintaining a clean and healthy environment in your business. These three tiers of cleaning serve different purposes in terms of removing dirt, reducing germs, and preventing the spread of diseases. The level of cleaning that you will need in your office, warehouse, medical facility, or retail store will depend on the type of business that you are and the clientele that you serve.
