Price Estimates for Janitorial Services in Vaughan and the GTA

Cleaning Services Vary in Approach

The average cost for the services of a professional Janitoral Service varies greatly.  Depending on the size of the market, competition and area that a business is in, what commercial firms with various spaces pay can vary. The Greater Toronto Area, which include Vaughan, Woodbridge and areas like Concord, is large and there are many professional cleaning services to choose from.

There are several ways that professional cleaners calculate costs. First of all, you need to determine the square footage of the area that needs to be cleaned. Next, you need to determine the tasks that should be done daily, weekly or monthly. For example, basic tasks may include window washing, vacuuming, cleaning restrooms, washing the walls, washing the doors, dusting, cleaning of the desks, chairs and the general reception area.

A one time cleaning job can command a higher rate than a regular ongoing contract. Fees can range from $200 and up. The only way you can get an accurate assessment of what cleaning your property will cost is by calling up such a service and getting an estimate. You will also need to actually use the service, evaluate the end result and then determine if it is good value. Of course there are many other considerations other than the cost when choosing a Janitorial Service, but it’s a good idea to get an sense of what the market rates are.

Cleaning proper is an art

Do you have a recent construction job completed in Vaughn, Concord, Woodbridge or the GTA in general? Before moving into the new space, call Clean-Slate Janitorial Services to make sure the job is done right to ensure that your move will start fresh from day one.

Just because a building is finished construction doesn’t mean it’s ready for the occupants to move in. Typically, there will be a lot of dust and debris leftover from the construction itself. Post construction cleanups are best left for professionals to tackle, as the dust may be fine and harder to get rid of. Drywall dust is notoriously hard to clean and you need to have good tools to do the job. There may also be left over construction material that needs to be moved to the appropriate garbage dumping facilities.

As well, moving is stressful for any company and employing a post-construction cleanup crew will lessen the hassle. Clean-Slate Janitorial Services will provide a deeper clean in less time, using leading tools and equipment to make any facility ready for move in. No matter what size, we can do the job. Whether it’s an entire multi-story commercial building or a single rental suite, we will thoroughly clean it from top to bottom.

Our knowledgeable cleaners are all fully trained professionals, ready to offer customizable services to keep any business immaculately cleaned. Whether you run a small medical office or a large sprawling corporate headquarter, we can come up with a cleaning solution for you. Start your move right, by hiring a professional Janitorial Service to do your post construction cleaning.

Should you be Aware of the Cleaning Supplies your Janitor Uses?

Do you know what’s in the cleaners?

There is a wide range of commercial cleaning supplies available on the market. Make sure the janitorial service you hire is using cleaning materials that are best suited to your needs. We at Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, a top professional commercial cleaner serving the GTA, with areas of focus that include Vaughan, Concord and Woodbridge, make sure that we use the most appropriate cleaning solution for the commercial spaces we serve.

We will disclose the supplies we use to ensure that our customers know they are getting good commercial quality cleaning fluids and chemicals that will not harm the materials clean, but at the same time provide the most effective cleaning for the job.

Whether your focus is green cleaning, health and safety, or value for your money, you should communicate with your professional commercial cleaner your concerns.  The average employee spends at least 8 hours each workday in an office space, so it is not ideal to use cleaning products that could leave residues harmful to their health and wellbeing.

You should be aware of professional cleaners that cut corners on cleaning supply expenses or choose products that are unethical.  Clean-Slate Janitorial Services will always ensure that we offer you expert cleaning, ethically and affordably.

Should You Ask your Employees to Clean Up After Themselves?

Employees can also help clean the space

It’s not easy being a facility manager for a commercial space and no matter the size of your company, a question that comes up is whether or not employees should be active in keeping the space clean.

Companies that use the services of Professional Cleaners like Clean-Slate Janitorial Services may still consider asking employees to clean up after themselves, even if there is someone that cleans in the evening afterwards. This does not have to be a deep cleaning, but simple wipes and removal of garbage and debris. A little bit of effort throughout the days goes a long way to helping an office look orderly.

There are several reasons why it’s a good idea to ask your employees to keep not only their own desk area clean, but the common areas like the kitchen clean:

-It improves company moral when the space is clean throughout the day

-It reduces employee tensions when the space is left clean for the next person to use

-It helps develop good habits that lead to employees developing a more community-oriented outlook

-It reduces extra cleaning that the janitors may have to do, thereby reducing the cost to the company

Cleanliness as a habit is something that companies should encourage. Discipline, respect and high standards are ideals that make for the most successful companies. At Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, we meet and exceed industry standards for professional cleaning. Contact us today at 416 509 7454 for a free estimate.

How Professional Cleaners Remove Odours

Cleaning to remove smells

Commercial Offices in Toronto and the GTA, including Vaughan, Concord and Woodbridge, have come to Clean-Slate Janitorial Services asking for expertise in removing odors from their space. The most obvious causes are food residue and spaces that have been neglected for too long, allowing mildew and dust to accumulate and cause unpleasant smells.  As well, bathrooms not properly cleaned are also culprits.

Professional Cleaners will use strong, effective cleaning supplies that attack the germs and bacteria causing the offending smell, and ensure that the corners are cleaned thoroughly.

However, sometimes this is not sufficient and techniques like wet and thermal fogging are used to disinfect and deodorize the air. Very small particles of a solution are sprayed in the air and on surfaces. This helps to eliminate smells not entirely cleaned by other means.

Another professional way of cleaning the air is using Ozone. Ozone, which can be sprayed by special machines, removes offending odors by breaking down molecules, spores and bacteria. Ozone (03) is a very reactive molecule which reacts with particles in the air and on surfaces. It attaches itself to other molecules and changes the chemical structure that creates neutral smelling molecules, thereby cleaning the air.

The best way to avoid having to resort to more advance odor removal techniques is to simply to use the services of a professional cleaner, such as Clean-Slate Janitorial Services to regularly maintain the cleanliness of a space and to ensure that your commercial space smell fresh and pleasant.
