The Joy of Cleaning

Hello and welcome to my cleaning blog. Cleaning can bring you a lot of joy. Without it, our homes and businesses would literally be covered in old food, dust, and garbage. My name is Penny, and in this blog, I'm going to cover cleaning techniques and tips for staying organized. Whether you are trying to wash a stain out of a shirt or keep on top of the vacuuming, I hope these posts help. I also plan to write about hiring professional cleaners for your home, office, or even your industrial facility. My hope is that this blog brings you as much joy as a clean space.

Three Skills To Learn To Ramp Up Your Janitorial Business

Catherine Edwards

Starting an office janitorial service can be a lucrative venture. Since offices need cleaners at any point during the day, night, or work hours, you can essentially run a 24/7 business. If you would prefer to be overnight business only, you can become a nightly cleaning company for buildings and have your days free. If you are intending to offer contractual janitorial services, you should increase the number of services that you offer in order to score more money and more contracts. Here are three skills to learn to ramp up your janitorial service. 

Window cleaning

Windows are a part of every business that should not be skipped. Whether the business is a one-story retail shop with floor to ceiling windows or the buildings is your average two story with normal sized windows, they will need to be cleaned on a regular basis. Learn to clean windows with the use of a hose or by manually scrubbing windows with a squeegee. Knowing how to clean interior and exterior windows means that you can add this as a monthly extra service to a contract for an additional price raise. 

Plumbing cleaning

If you re planning to do work for gyms or salons, one of the services that you may need to offer is plumbing cleaning services. In a salon, hair can easily begin to clog the sinks and drains, which makes it more difficult to keep the sink clean. In gyms showers that have a lot of body scrubs and lotions from different members going down the drains may begin to back up. Get the proper tools and chemicals to clear drains of hair and other grime. Having your preventative service for a slight upcharge in cleaning will mean that businesses need less emergency plumbing services in the long run. 

Equipment cleaning

Office equipment, such as printers and projectors, need to be cleaned in order to continue to work. Learning to operate the office equipment and clean it means that your cleaning service can do a full sanitization of offices plus keep up the equipment. Learn to clean the heads and interior of large printers, as well as clean off projector screens and equipment. It is also a good idea to learn how to replace the bulbs in projectors in the event that they go out. Learning to keep up all of the office equipment makes you a full-service office care company, which can command more dollars in any contract.
