Janitorial services are a necessity; something every property owner must deal with directly or delegate. If left untended to, properties can become messy, dirty and eventually uninhabitable. For those who can’t stand working in a cubicle, being a janitor or running a janitorial service can be an enjoyable and lucrative way to make a living. The benefits of being a janitor or owning a janitorial service include being able to set your own hours and to work with repeat clients on a contractual basis. As long as the job standard is high, the work tends to continue. The business of janitorial services is built through marketing, reputation and referrals. Whether one decides to become a solo practitioner, or a centralized janitorial service provider employing multiple cleaning crews, the janitorial industry is an industry that will always be in demand.

Operating a janitorial business involves detail orientation, time management, and the ability to successfully market. Operations require cleaning supplies and specialty equipment such as telescoping dusters or industrial grade floor-waxers. Deciding on a niche is important; some janitorial services specialize in commercial facilities manufacturing warehouses while others specialize in office buildings. If staffing is necessary, a janitorial services business must carefully vet employees for fastidiousness, trustworthiness, and check referrals. Janitorial services typically run using on premise software or software as a service (SaaS) like FieldPulse. These platforms manage employees and independent contractors, handle scheduling, communicate with clients and run accounting, billing, invoicing and janitorial services payment.
