Is a “janitor” the same job as a “cleaning person?”
Sometimes, however the job description of a janitor encompasses a broader scope of skills and responsibilities.
Janitorial services often include basic cleaning which is why it is important to know what to look for in a janitorial service company.
When hiring a service to come into your business, you want to be very sure the people are skilled and professional. Cleaning and maintaining your offices and property are not just about emptying the trash.
Professional janitorial services includes tasks such as:
- Knowing the right product to use on wood, glass, marble or tile.
- How to clean spills and other hazards with appropriate equipment.
- Notify managers when a building needs major or minor repairs.
- Janitors need to know how to run power equipment such as high speed burnishers and carpet cleaning equipment.
