“Every season brings new challenges when it comes to keeping a commercial office or retail setting clean and properly maintained,” says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean-Slate Janitorial Services. “After the harsh winter, spring is the perfect time to hire a janitorial services company. Whether it’s the floors, the windows, or inside the office, a clean office or building makes a lasting impression and is important for maintaining a healthy, hygienic work environment.”

Panousis explains that doing a simple online search for janitorial services firms in Toronto returns more than 100,000 results, showing how difficult it can be to find the best commercial cleaning company. To select the best commercial cleaning company in Toronto, businesses should take a number of factors into consideration.

For the most part, Panousis continues, commercial cleaning companies provide similar services and explain that their company is right for the job; for the most objective opinion, ask for references and testimonials. A company or individual seeking this type of service should also check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there have been any complaints, and if so, how they were resolved.

“On top of that, a reputable, experienced commercial cleaning company will offer clear pricing,” he adds. “Not only do businesses understand the kind of services they are getting, but they also know what they’re paying. It’s not uncommon for inexperienced or even shady cleaning companies to have confusing pricing or refuse to finish what they agreed to do.”

Panousis notes that it’s also important to look for janitorial cleaning companies that use commercial strength, earth-friendly cleaning products; conventional cleaning products contain harmful chemicals that are toxic to both people and the environment. Not only do earth-friendly products have the same cleaning power of regular chemicals without the harmful side effects, but they also have the added benefit of cutting down on exposure to toxins and play an important role in people’s physical well-being.
