When the pandemic hit in 2020, it brought a whole new meaning of clean at the office, on the factory floor, and at construction sites. On the commercial front, the demand for janitorial services and deep cleaning with an emphasis on sanitization and disinfection became routine once COVID entered our lives.
Prior to COVID, standard office cleaning services included emptying trash cans, vacuuming, mopping floors, dusting, wiping surfaces, and performing the occasional deep clean. Routine sanitization and disinfection is now required for offices to remain open to maintain a healthy workspace. This is the new norm, particularly as we continue to experience COVID variants and rising infections among the population.
Janitorial companies today are expected to pay close attention to detail and be able to assess each customer's cleaning service needs on an individual basis. For example, high-traffic offices may necessitate more frequent deep cleaning than a business that employs a hybrid model and has fewer workers in the office.
