What Is the Difference Between Hiring A Janitorial Service or Office Cleaning Service?


If staff doesn’t have the time, training, or equipment to keep your facility clean, then a janitorial service may be just what you need!

There is often confusion between the difference of a commercial janitorial service and a cleaning service.  Many people incorrectly believe that the two are the same. However, there are quite a few differences between the two services, and hiring the right one for your business is essential. 

An office cleaning service usually comes into your business or company for one-off cleans after special events or large annual cleans. They aren’t there to do the day-to-day duties that a janitorial service will focus on.  

A janitorial service will take care of your business on a regular basis.  They provide cleaning but also disinfection services so that your facility is clean and healthy.  Some of the different tasks that a commercial janitorial service focuses on includes:

  • Restroom cleaning and disinfection 
  • Cleaning of employee breakrooms or kitchens 
  • Sweeping, mopping as well as stripping and waxing of hard surface floors
  • Vacuuming and deep cleaning carpets 
  • Dusting high and low surfaces 
  • Emptying trash
  • Wiping down office desks and chairs

A professional janitorial service will develop a custom cleaning solution to suit you and your business.  They will conduct an on-site visit and listen to the unique needs of your business and build a protocol to meet your budget.
