Do You Really Need a Commercial Surface Cleaning Vendor?


Your janitorial vendor is already coming in to keep your facility clean. They vacuum, take out the trash, and clean the bathrooms. It may seem like that’s enough. You might think hiring a commercial surface cleaning vendor on top of your regular cleaning is too much—especially as you try to be conservative with your budget

While janitorial services play a vital role in keeping your facility clean, there is still a need for a specialty surface vendor. Below, we’ve shared four reasons why you should add surface cleaning to your facility care plan. 

4 Reasons to Work with a Commercial Surface Cleaner

1. Extend the life of your surfaces.

Professional surface cleaning keeps your surfaces looking newer, longer. A trained surface cleaning professional has the right cleaning solutions and equipment that will dramatically extend the life of your carpet and upholstery.

Not only will they look better, but your surfaces will maintain their integrity far longer than they would with a janitorial service alone. That means you won’t have to replace your carpet, flooring or upholstery nearly as often. This translates to tremendous savings for your facility because you will not need to replace or refinish your surfaces prematurely.

2. Benefit from a deeper clean.

Surface-level cleaning, such as vacuuming, dusting and mopping, is the minimal requirement to keep your facility clean and healthy. However, a preventative maintenance program is what will make the biggest impact for the cleanliness and health of your flooring, upholstery and other surfaces.

A deeper cleaning on a regular basis eliminates substances that can damage the integrity of your surfaces. For example, oil and dirt degrade your carpet and upholstery from the inside out. Regular surface cleaning also addresses discolored grout and floors that have lost their shine. Mopping alone won’t cut it.

3. Maintain a healthy office environment.

Your tenants’ health is always the top priority. To keep your building truly healthy, though, you’ll have a deeper level of cleaning for your surface.. A specialty commercial cleaning company will thoroughly clean your surfaces to eliminate microbials and bacteria that spread illness and irritate allergies. 

Your surfaces significantly affect the air quality and overall health of your building. This doesn’t cover only healthcare-related facilities. Any surface in any facility will inherently collect bacteria and allergens. That’s why it’s important to work with a commercial cleaner that specializes in removing these materials from your surfaces.

At DPM Care, for example, our proprietary cleaning technology can remove up to 99% of allergens and microbials hiding in your carpet and upholstery. This is one small way you can improve the health of your facility and your team.

4. Know your vendor is using the correct equipment. 

There are all kinds of surface cleaning equipment out there. However, there is equipment that will deeply sanitize and remove stains and then there is equipment that will do the bare minimum. 

You want a vendor that knows which tools are the best for each kind of surface. Other non-specialty vendors often use equipment that damages your surfaces over time. Though it’s unintentional, they will shorten the length of your investment’s lifespan, leaving you with thousands of dollars in replacements well before you’re ready.

Plus, there are some speciality jobs that require equipment that most janitorial companies won’t have. For instance, cleaning ceilings, rafters and other high surfaces requires special equipment to reach those areas. Most daily cleaning operations won’t have the right equipment to get the job done.

Your surfaces are, more than anything, an investment in the look and feel of your building. The cost associated with replacing these surfaces is exceptionally high, and not one you want to pay before it’s absolutely necessary.
