What To Know About Commercial Janitorial Services

When pricing commercial cleaning services, you may have come across references to both commercial cleaning services as well as janitorial services. When working with a Coverall® Franchise Business Owner, either of these terms would be referring to everyday commercial cleaning services and Coverall’s Health-Based Cleaning System® designed to keep your business looking its best.

Here’s what you need to know about Coverall commercial janitorial services and why janitor services play a vital role in keeping your business looking its best.


Commercial janitorial services include day-to-day cleaning services like dusting, mopping and vacuuming. These everyday commercial cleaning services are essential for workplaces of all kinds. However, not all types of facilities will need the same janitor services or cleaning schedule. For this reason, you should only consider janitorial companies like Coverall that offer customized commercial janitorial services based on the specific needs of your business.

Most businesses require both routine and specialized cleaning services. Though hiring different companies to satisfy these needs is possible, having multiple businesses performing commercial cleaning services for your business can be unnecessarily expensive, confusing and redundant. 

This is why our Coverall Franchise Business Owners are trained in a wide range of cleaning services. This allows them to provide consistent and thorough commercial janitorial services on a regular basis while also possessing the skills necessary to perform additional cleaning services as needed. These supplementary services include our On-Demand Cleaning Services that can cover deep cleaning, disinfection and cleaning needs on short notice, as well as Preventative Maintenance Cleaning Services specially designed to protect and extend the life of your valuable business assets.

By having all cleaning services performed by the same janitorial company, you remove the need to manage multiple janitorial companies.


Daily cleaning tasks—what some cleaning companies call janitorial services—are vital for maintaining a professional-looking and healthier work environment. The cleaning schedule for these services will depend on the specific needs of your business. Janitor services should follow workplace cleaning best practices and include common tasks such as:

  • Bathroom cleaning

  • Vacuuming

  • Dusting

  • Mopping

  • Emptying trash cans

  • Wiping down surfaces


The cost for these services will be based on your facility size, the frequency of service, task complexity, building layout and specific cleaning needs. Additionally, janitorial companies should provide quotes specific to your business needs to ensure the most effective use of your cleaning budget.


Not all commercial janitorial services follow strict cleaning guidelines. This can result in an improper cleaning approach and potential health risks.


Instead, rely on Coverall-trained cleaning professionals who are trained in our proprietary Core 4® Process, which was built on CDC and AORN guidelines to ensure a hospital-grade clean with each visit. This process includes:

  1. Hospital-grade disinfectants that kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria.

  2. Color-coded microfiber cloths to trap and remove 99% of bacteria and dirt while preventing germ spread.

  3. No-dip flat mops that clean floors without using dirty water to minimize cross-contamination.

  4. HEPA backpack vacuums that capture 99% of dust and other airborne particles to improve air quality.


Day porter cleaning services allow you to keep your business looking its best at all times. As one of our On-Demand Cleaning Services, day porter duties involve janitorial maintenance services like common area sanitization, vacuuming and mopping of lobby floors and trash disposal. Duties can also include restocking of paper products or spill cleanup. These extra same-day services can keep your business clean during times of unexpectedly high traffic, excessive dirt and debris accumulation or other scenarios that require additional cleaning needs between your regularly scheduled cleanings.

If you require same-day cleaning services, a Coverall Franchise Business Owner can work with you to dispatch a team to your business to meet your additional cleaning needs. This can help you keep your business environment clean, safe and healthy for your team and your guests.

They will look at the size and activity level of your workplace and consider any peak seasons, frequency needs or other unique factors that may affect your cleaning quote.
