Janitorial vs Commercial

Any business owner who has a business in South Wales, whether that is a retail space, an office, a warehouse or a healthcare facility will know the importance of keeping a clean and organised workplace. Not only is having a clean working environment important for employees – having a clean workplace can give a positive impression on your business which will have a direct influence on your sales. If your business is not up to snuff with its cleaning, the chances are that you won’t be making that big contract or sale with a potential customer.

Keeping a clean and well-maintained workspace will greatly affect the performance of your employees. Studies have shown that staff are much happier and more productive when they are working in a clean and organised environment. Whilst some companies will hire their own inhouse team to provide regular cleaning others do not have the resources to do that and will hire an external commercial cleaning provider like A&R Cleaning Services.

However, Commercial cleaning providers in South Wales will offer both commercial cleaning and janitorial services. The phrases ‘Janitorial services and ‘Commercial cleaning services’ are often used interchangeably, but they both describe two very different services. If you are looking to hire a commercial cleaning service such as A&R Cleaning Services, then it helps to understand the difference between the two services, to ensure you are getting the right service that your business needs.

So, what is the difference between Janitorial and Commercial Cleaning?

Although some commercial cleaning companies will offer both janitorial and commercial cleaning services – there is a difference.

Janitorial Services include small, everyday cleaning tasks while commercial cleaning involves bigger jobs that are done a few times a year. For example, janitorial services would include regular cleaning of surfaces such as desks, carpets, floors, etc. Whereas commercial cleaning includes deep cleaning of floors. Having janitorial services can help with everyday cleaning and maintenance but if you have just moved into a new unit or have had recent work done in your workplace – then having a deep clean is beneficial.

Janitorial Services

As mentioned before, janitorial services will take care of everyday cleaning duties and keep your workplace clean and well maintained on a regular basis. Having consistent janitorial services will constantly keep your office looking well presented and ready for visiting potential clients. Usually, companies will schedule their cleaning services based on their needs within the workplace, whether it’s daily, weekly or bi-weekly cleaning. Some commercial cleaners will leave it up to you to put together a schedule and a range of tasks but we at A&R Cleaning Services aren’t like that. We can come into your business and go through with you a schedule and a range of tasks that will ensure that your business will consistently look clean and well presented.

Here at A&R Cleaning Services we provide janitorial services and are fully trained to use cleaning products and equipment to reduce the risk of cross-contamination and maintain a clean workplace.

Janitorial Service normally includes:

  • Restroom cleaning
  • Cleaning of breakrooms and/or kitchen areas
  • Sweeping and mopping hard floor surfaces
  • Vacuuming carpets
  • Dusting
  • Emptying waste bins

Commercial Cleaning

Commercial Cleaning companies such as A&R Cleaning services cover larger cleaning jobs that don’t need to be done on a regular basis. Most businesses will normally hire a commercial company for a one-off deep clean but other business such as schools will regularly book deep cleans throughout the year. However, when planning to have commercial cleaning done, make sure that you know what needs to be done and when. Also, when speaking to a commercial cleaning company ask them questions about their service and see if they can back their work with a satisfaction guarantee.

Typically, a commercial cleaning company will provide services such as:

  • Carpet cleaning
  • Tile and grout cleaning
  • Hard Floor Cleaning
  • Upholstery and furniture cleaning
  • Window cleaning
  • Power washing

If you are needing consistent cleaning services that can keep your workplace looking clean and presentable, then you need janitorial services. If your business has a few places that need a deep clean, then commercial cleaning is the way to go. Most cleaning providers in South Wales will provide both types of cleaning services – so when looking, find a cleaning company that can provide both services to save you the trouble of working with multiple contractors.

Here at A&R Cleaning Services, we are a cleaning company that can provide both janitorial services and commercial cleaning services to businesses across South Wales.
