Do Your Janitorial Services Do This?
Janitorial and custodial services mean well and do provide a valuable service. It is important to have the visible dust and dirt removed from your building and it looking and feeling clean. That puts your customers and employees in a good mood. If your customers are in a good mood, they buy more, tell their friends and family, and keep coming back to you. If your employees are in a good mood, they work harder, get more done, and do better quality work. If you are a school, your students and teachers will benefit from less absenteeism, increased learning, higher grade point averages higher graduation rates and live better lives.
But, janitorial and custodial services only solve a small part of your real problem.
The big issue at your organization isn’t how it looks or smells. The real concern is the amount of mold, mildew, dust mites, allergens, germs, viruses, and bacteria your custodial staff or outsourcing custodial service company doesn’t eliminate. Their cleaning protocols miss the vast majority of disease-causing agents. That’s because their mission is not designed to go after these undesirable organinisms. And the service they perform doesn’t focus on removing them.
That’s where “building sanitizing services” come in. While your building will certainly look and smell clean, this service also goes directly after all these microscopic disease causing organisms.
Because sanitizing service eliminates so many more of them than custodial staffs or janitorial services do, your organization experiences much less illness-related absenteeism. That results in greater morale, productivity, and attendance.

- Regular Sanitization
This includes trapping bacteria so it can’t even enter your building in the first place, and eliminating what does enter. With current technology, it’s not possible to get rid of every last bacterium. However, it is possible to significantly reduce the number present.
- Facilitating Custom Health Programs
What potential threats do your building and business practices expose your guests or tenants to? For example, at your school, everyone has to grab the door handle to get in, don’t they? Well, that’s a huge opportunity for germs to hop a ride on your hands and spread throughout your building.
Or, what if you’re a business and everyone presses a button on the water cooler to get water? Same scenario – germs will spread.
What can you do to minimize or put an end to these problems?
A custom health program that helps you identify potential areas for trouble like these makes a huge impact on the spread of disease at your business.
Janitorial and custodial services are worthwhile. We aren’t cutting them down. But, it’s important to realize that there’s so much more to maintaining your building than simply making it look and smell clean. With cutting edge sanitizing service, the future is now.
