Understanding the difference between commercial cleaning and janitorial services can be difficult, as they have many similarities. The type of commercial cleaning services required will depend on the type of business and its cleaning needs. Without knowing the difference, you may find yourself unsatisfied and wasting money on the wrong cleaning company. We are here to help you better understand the difference between commercial cleaning and janitorial services. Here’s what you need to know!

Janitorial Services

Janitorial service is for businesses that require consistent building cleaning services on a daily, weekly, or bi-weekly basis. Tasks include regular maintenance and upkeep of offices and commercial spaces like taking out the trash, refilling dispensers, wiping surfaces, cleaning bathrooms, break rooms, and kitchens, dusting, vacuuming, and mopping.

Commercial Cleaning

Commercial cleaning applies to large-scale commercial buildings like warehouses, schools, fitness facilities, and other commercial spaces. It often includes one-time cleaning services like window cleaning, floor stripping and waxing, pressure washing, office carpet cleaning, and deep cleaning. Commercial cleaning services are less frequent. Often on a bi-monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis.

Which Cleaning Service is Right for You?

Base your corporate cleaning service needs off of these three factors.

    • • Size
    • • Traffic
    • • Needs


    Most businesses require a mix of commercial cleaning and janitorial services. This provides businesses with regular cleaning maintenance and one-time cleaning requests. Janitorial services are preferred for office buildings, schools, and fitness facilities. Commercial cleaning services are ideal for warehouses, as they require more specific, less frequent cleaning tasks to upkeep their flooring and equipment.
