Janitorial services can include a wide spectrum of services; industrial cleaning services are a specific niche by janitorial companies that focus primarily on industrial space such as manufacturing space, mixed-use commercial space with fabrication onsite, and the like. What makes commercial cleaning different than regular cleaning? What makes industrial cleaning services different, or is it the same?
Commercial cleaning is designed for overall, day to day cleanliness of a commercial property or space. They are high traffic areas of work and/or commerce. Both interior and exterior space is important to have cleaned, not just for safety, but also appearance. Customers depend on a clean, organized space to meet their expectations of professionalism. Staff expect a safe work environment free of trash and germs. These really are the goals of any janitorial company.
Industrial Cleaning Services
Typically, industrial cleaning services include a safety-first focus, cross-contamination prevention, confidentially/security clearance (when needed), and customized cleaning plans. Specific cleaning methods, standards and equipment may need to be used, so experience and trustworthiness are of high need.
Industrial Cleaning can include, but is not limited to:
• Floor care, including carpets
• Upholstery cleaning
• Restroom Sanitation
• Trash removal
• Sanitation of flat surfaces such as desks, counters, shelves, etc.

• Day porter services
• Facilities management/ maintenance
What is the difference between commercial cleaning and industrial cleaning services?
The main difference is in the types of facilities each service provides. They are one in the same for the most part and it is really the commercial cleaning company themselves who determine if they clean industrial space or not. Those who specifically notate their expertise and interest in industrial cleaning services have what it takes to provide it. Not all companies are the same, however, so it is important to look for those who meet your requirements.
Why consider industrial cleaning services?
Appearance. You only have one chance to make a first impression. Whether for potential clients, current customers, visitors, vendors, or staff, how you maintain your work space says a lot about how you run your business. Debris and unsanitary conditions may not only be a turn-off, but they could also create a big safety liability.
Health. Dirty, debris, cross-contamination, germs, bacteria… these can all lead to health concerns for those who work in or frequent your space. A clean and sanitized work space leads to less sick days and less respiratory and headache-related complaints.
Well being. Studies have shown that workers in an environment where cleanliness and safety are prioritized feel happier and are more productive. When an organization and housekeeping responsibilities are part of the overall culture of the business, workers follow suit, which in turns feeds a positive morale.
Staff Priorities. Good housekeeping is a responsibility of all employees, but none are likely trained to go above and beyond and sanitize common areas. Just as anyone who specializes in tasks knows, the more specialized means the more thorough. Allow your staff to specialize in their tasks while a janitorial cleaning company specializes in what they do best- cleaning.
