Why Should a Business Invest in a Professional Janitorial Services Company?

Attention to detail

If you own a business or building in the DC area and are contemplating the value of contracting commercial cleaning services—there are many factors to take into consideration. Whether you are in need of ongoing janitorial services, periodic deep cleaning, or specialty cleaning projects—Universal Janitorial Services has you covered.

We can clean and provide maintenance for anything from office buildings, high-rise complexes, condominiums, shopping centers, apartment buildings, schools, medical offices, places of worship, parking garages, tenanted offices, or post-construction clean up. All of our clients benefit from the following factors:

Time Is Money

As a business continues to grow, the cleaning tasks that were once easily manage by the in-house staff—can grow into a time consuming commitment. By investing in commercial cleaning services, you can ensure that your team is spending their time doing what they do best—their job.

Superior Attention To Detail

Ensuring that your office, business, or building is pristine from floor to ceiling is our specialty. Our professional cleaners are trained to identify all areas of opportunity, which may otherwise be overlooked.

While your team may excel at running your business, we have the attention to detail to notice the dust on baseboards, the scuff on the floors, your office overall cleanliness, and other problem areas that make areas look less professional.

Professional Grade Cleaning Tools And Supplies

Another benefit to investing in commercial cleaning services, is that we have access to the professional grade cleaning tools and supplies required to get the job done. This includes time-saving tools, as well as tool designed to address specialty surfaces such as marble and hardwood.

We also eliminate the need for you to store cleaning tools and supplies, by bringing what we need to get the job done—directly to you.

Sanitation And Cleanliness

At Universal Janitorial Services, we not only ensure that your business or building looks clean—but that it is sanitized too. We focus on the often ignored, yet germ-filled areas such as door knobs, handles, staircase railings, and bathrooms.

What To Ask When Hiring a Janitorial Service. Part I.

At Universal Janitorial Services, we’re often asked about our policies, whether they are about securing your property, cleaning your facility, or maintaining quality standards, so we thought it might be interesting to explore the different aspects of what to look for when choosing a janitorial service. Here are a couple of items to think about, and we’ll offer more in our future blog posts.

Ask About Experience
While lack of experience shouldn’t keep someone from doing business with what otherwise seems like a qualified janitorial service, it is always better to choose a company with a solid record of stellar service. As businesses become more efficient and effective as they go along, and so does Universal Janitorial Services. We’ve been in business for over 30 years.

Ask About Staff
Each employee should go through a thorough background check prior to employment, and be placed in position conducive to their individual talents and personality. Longevity is also a good sign. Many of our employees have been with us over a decade.

Ask About Communication
Constant communication is the key to building great relationships with customers. A great janitorial service will inspect a client’s facility on a routine basis to ensure their employees are performing their duties exceptionally well. In turn, they should offer clients regular feedback as to what additional work may be needed to make their facility look its absolute best. At Universal Janitorial Services, we make it a policy to follow up with our clients regularly to ensure they are happy with our service.
