Office Lobby - Commercial cleaning for property managers

The Top 3 Commercial Cleaning Services Property Managers Need

At Foreman Pro Cleaning we understand the responsibility and demands of commercial property managers have a lot on their plate. Not only do they need to worry about the property itself, but they also need to make sure that the tenants are happy and that the property is kept clean and safe.

We have worked and partnered with dozens of property managers and facilities large and small. And over the past 25 years, we have found the top three most in-demand and important commercial cleaning services for commercial property managers.

The top three commercial cleaning services for property managers are:

  1. Nightly contract janitorial services
  2. Day porter services
  3. Floor care maintenance.

We will go into detail about each service and how we can help property managers keep their property and tenants safe, clean, and happy.

Nightly Contract Janitorial Service maintains cleanliness and safety

Nightly contract janitorial services are a must for any large commercial property with in-person businesses. Our janitors will clean the property at night while the employees and customers are gone. This allows property managers to have one less thing to worry about during their busy days.

Standard Janitorial Cleaning includes:

  • Restrooms
  • Break rooms
  • Lobbies and common areas
  • Offices
  • Windows
  • Dusting and more.

In addition to our standard cleaning, we also offer:

  • Sanitizing and Disinfection
  • Deep cleaning services for the hard-to-reach or forgotten areas
  • Post-construction clean-up services

Daily cleaning of common areas within a business is a necessity. Nightly commercial cleaning services are vital to ensure these areas are clean and presentable for employees and customers alike.

Day porter services save you and your tenant’s daily headaches.

Day porter services are another important service that property managers should consider. While our nightly janitorial services will leave your office spotless by the start of business each day, there are always messes and maintenance that come up every day. Day porters serve commercial properties during business hours and can help with things like:

  • Restocking restrooms
  • Sweeping sidewalks
  • Picking up trash
  • Maintaining lobbies, and common areas
  • Cleaning up accidental messes.

Day porters take the burden off of tenants and employees to keep the property clean and focus on their work. It also saves property managers from those small messes becoming big messes if they aren’t cleaned up quickly or properly.

Proper floor care – the forgotten cleaning task

Floor care maintenance is important for any commercial property, but especially for those with high-traffic areas. First impressions matter and you want your lobby or common area to make a good one. In addition to making sure your property looks its best, regular floor care maintenance also extends the life of your flooring and can save property managers money in the long run.

Floor care maintenance is one of the most important, but often overlooked, commercial cleaning services property managers need. A property’s floors take a lot of abuse on a daily basis and it is important to keep up with their maintenance in order to prolong their life and prevent accidents. Our floor care services include:

No matter what type of flooring you have, we can help you keep it looking its best. We will work with property managers to create a customized floor care maintenance plan that fits their property’s specific needs.

Why are these three cleaning services so important?

These three services have the biggest impact on the cleanliness and safety of your commercial property. In professional office buildings and business parks, it’s easy to miss just how much wear and tear a property takes every day. Without daily cleaning and constant upkeep, a commercial property can quickly start to look dingy and things can break down.

However maybe even more important is the negative effect a poorly maintained property can have on the reputation of you and your tenants.

Poor property management hurts your property’s reputation

If potential customers or clients see a property that is not well-maintained, they will question your ability to take care of their needs. If you have tenants in your commercial property, poor upkeep can make them feel like you do not value their business or care about their work environment.

A clean and safe property creates a positive first impression, builds trust, and shows that you are professional and take pride in your property. These are all qualities that will help you attract new tenants and retain current ones.

Poor Property management hurts your tenant’s reputation

Your tenants are the ones who have to work in and around your property every day. If the property is not well-maintained, it can make their job more difficult and put their safety at risk. In addition, a dirty or dangerous property can make it difficult to attract new tenants when leases are up for renewal.

Poor Property management costs more money in the long run

It may seem like commercial cleaning is a burdensome expense, but the truth is that it actually saves you money in the long run. When you have a professional property manager, they will take care of all the day-to-day tasks and maintenance items so that you can focus on running your business.

A commercial cleaner also has the experience and knowledge to spot problems early on and take care of them before they turn into bigger, more expensive issues.

According to Ari Chazanas in Forbes¹

“If your property manager doesn’t care about the property, your tenants won’t either. That’s when things get damaged, and little mistakes turn into larger and often more costly ones. Neglect is very bad for your bottom line.”

Professional cleaners use the best tools, cleaning techniques, and products for their work. Thus, they’re less likely to use products or techniques that lead to wear/tear on the property. This means less deterioration and fewer maintenance costs.

There’s also the scheduling to consider. You might overestimate how often you’ll need a cleaning job done on a certain piece of property. This makes you prone to hiring cleaners for unnecessary sessions. A professional cleaner will inform you how often you might need their service. They can judge a property’s condition and develop a cleaning schedule that keeps things looking nice without breaking your budget.

In conclusion, regular commercial cleaning is essential for the health and safety of your property, tenants, and business. A professional commercial cleaner can take care of all your cleaning needs so that you can focus on what you do best – running your business!
