Commercial Cleaning FAQs

What is commercial cleaning?

Commercial cleaning is the cleaning of business spaces like offices, medical facilities, retail stores, gyms, educational facilities and more using a range of cleaning services.

How much does commercial cleaning cost?

The price of commercial cleaning varies based on a number of factors, including the size of your facility, frequency of service, complexity of service and building layout. Additional On-Demand Cleaning Services and Preventative Maintenance Services, such as carpet cleaning, hard floor care, window cleaning or disinfecting services, are offered at rates competitive in your market.

What are the benefits of commercial cleaning?

There are a number of benefits to commercial cleaning, with the main one being a cleaner, safer, healthier environment for employees, guests and customers. Regular commercial cleaning services can ensure your space and brand always look great while helping to reduce the spread of illness, which leads to fewer sick days. And, the addition of On-Demand Cleaning Services and Preventative Maintenance Services to your commercial cleaning program can help keep dirt, dust, grime and stains from damaging your most valuable business assets, resulting in long-term cost savings.

Coverall Services FAQs

What kinds of facilities need a Coverall cleaning?

You might think that the Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System® Program is something that only certain spaces need, but the fact is, every type and size of facility can benefit from a professional, healthier cleaning program that emphasizes removing the maximum amount of dirt and germs.

What’s included in a basic cleaning?

Our basic or regular commercial cleaning program includes janitorial services like dusting and disinfecting wiping, vacuuming, mopping and trash removal. But, a plan can always be customized to meet your needs. If your facility requires something more, you can supplement your regular cleaning program with On-Demand Cleaning Services like deep cleaning, disinfecting and day porter services, as well as Preventative Maintenance Services like floor, window and upholstery cleaning.

Who will clean my facility?

Your facility will be cleaned by a local, bonded and insured Coverall Franchise Business Owner and their cleaning team. They will deliver Coverall’s Health-Based Clean®. Franchise businesses are independently owned and operated and are supported by a local Coverall Support Center.

How long do cleaning services take?

How long cleaning services take will depend on factors such as the type of services you’re receiving, the size of your facility, the complexity of service and the size of your Franchise Business Owner’s team. Everyday janitorial services will typically take less time than Preventative Maintenance Cleaning Services or a deep clean. A Disinfecting Service like contamination cleaning could take the longest, as it involves a meticulous process.

When is a deep clean necessary?

Our Deep Cleaning Services can be employed for a number of reasons. As an example, customers may request a one-time appearance cleaning ahead of a re-opening or after an event, or for a seasonal refresh to target the less-common and personal touch points that everyday services can’t get to. Businesses that are more susceptible to germs, such as doctors offices and daycares, will typically need a deeper clean more frequently just to maintain a healthy environment.

When is disinfection necessary?

When employees or customers have been exposed to a known pathogen or your workplace is experiencing an outbreak of illness, our Disinfecting Services — which include wipedowns, electrostatic spraying and contamination cleans using powerful disinfectants—can stop the spread in its tracks with 99.9% efficacy. A disinfecting service can be requested on-demand in order to tackle the issue with immediacy.

What are Preventative Maintenance Services?

This category of commercial cleaning services involves the periodic cleaning and maintenance of your businesses assets such as carpets, hard floors, grout, furniture, upholstery and windows. Our preventative maintenance cleaning specializes in cleaning protocols and equipment to remove stains, scuffs, dirt buildup, fingerprints and environmental debris. Preventative Maintenance Services can be added on to any basic cleaning program as needed or at a set frequency, such as monthly, quarterly, seasonally or semi-annually.

Are Coverall cleaning services “greener” for the environment?

Coverall Franchise Business Owners make use of refillable spray bottles and reusable cleaning products like color-coded microfiber cloths versus single-use paper towels. These products offer a less wasteful solution than paper or other disposable products and reduce environmental impact. Additionally, the microfiber cloths pick up and hold much more dust, dirt and debris than any paper product, providing an overall healthier clean.

Our no-dip flat mops only use the necessary amount of water to get the job done, so we waste less, conserve more and reduce cross-contamination.

The HEPA backpack vacuums used by Coverall Franchise Business Owners reduce indoor air pollution by keeping dirt, dust and other allergens inside the vacuum with filters that block 99.97% of those pollutants compared to only 40% blocked by non-HEPA units. With a non-HEPA unit, the remaining 60% of particles remaining reenter the environment.
