What are the Three S’s?
Even if your business itself doesn’t provide sustainable options, or sanitary products, that’s okay! You can still provide your customers with a safe, secure, and sustainable. experience by choosing a janitorial service vendor that does. But before you choose your cleaning partner, you have to know what the Three S’s mean.
Sanitary: Sanitary cleaning is the process of cleaning and disinfecting surfaces to prevent the spread of germs, bacteria, and viruses. Ever since Covid-19, it has become crucial to customers from all business lines, that this be a staple of in cleaning procedures and not a specialty component of it, despite the use of special equipment, trained janitorial technicians, and approved products designed to eliminate harmful pathogens that can cause illness and disease.
Secure: The health and safety of your workers and clients is one of the most important factors you should consider when choosing a commercial cleaning company. Safety comes mostly to the quality of the clean your vendor can provide, as well as the equipment and products used. Make sure your vendor has cleaning standards that are in line with any regulations your building may have to follow. Additionally, it’s helpful to consider a company that has their own proprietary process perfected, as they can provide insight and services you might not have thought of.
Sustainable: Now more than ever, potential clients and tenants are factoring the environment into their decision making. Even if you are a business that doesn’t PROVIDE environmentally friendly/sustainable services, you can still make a positive impact by choosing a company that does. Finding a vendor that uses green products and provides green cleaning can go a long way in not only sustaining the environment, but your business as well.
Why are The Three S’s Important?
By making a commitment to the safety, security, and sustainability of your business, you then make a long-term commitment to your clients. Most establishments forget that an expert janitorial team can go a long way in outpacing the competition. Even though you aren’t necessarily providing your customers with additional amenities, you are giving them a consistent, quality experience. Why waste time and money on things they won’t use when trying to get a leg up on the competition, when you can be smart with your funds, and let the cleanliness of your building speak for itself.
What does Sustainable Mean in Janitorial Services?
Sustainable janitorial services, or “green cleaning” as it is often referred to, means using cleaning products and practices that are safer for both human and environmental health. In the case of building cleaning services, this means that companies that use high quality and expertly vetted products that do not contain toxic ingredients and are not adding to the negative impact of the environment.

Exposure to and toxins can potentially cause irreparable damage to our bodies, water, air, and ecosystem.

Statistics also show a drop in employee absenteeism, and unlike conventional cleaning products, sustainable cleaners are safer, non-toxic, and biodegradable, meaning they won’t cause harm to the surrounding environment.

What Should You look for in a Vendor?
Services-Always consider the services your potential janitorial vendor offers. Do they offer everything you need? If not, do they have alternatives that align with your goals? These are the questions you need to ask yourself when you put your trust in a cleaning company.
Flexibility– Does your service provider have a one-size-fits-all solution, or are they a full-service partner? Full-service means having the adaptability to get the job done when things don’t go as planned. You also want to have a provider with customizable options, incase your needs change.
Quality– Find a partner who prioritizes quality, without compromising your busy schedule. This doesn’t stop at the clean itself, it also relates to the tools, chemicals, and operation of the vendor.
Experience– Find a partner who knows what their doing, at every level of the operation. It’s important to have a fully staffed team of experts at the ready to jump on issues when they arise, not after they happen. This will also go a long way in helping you figure out cost-effective solutions to problems that may come up.
