Relevant experience cleaning facilities like yours
Nothing beats experience. Without first hand knowledge of your specific cleaning needs, janitorial cleaning companies are figuring things out as they go.
Managing a medical office or facility is challenging, and making sure everything is clean is up there at the top of the list. You don’t want your patients to look around in the waiting area or in exam rooms at dirty floors or dingy baseboards.
What should I look for in a medical cleaning company?
The very basics begin with making sure the cleaning company you choose has experience cleaning medical facilities. You don’t want to be a cleaning company’s first medical customer. Your patients will notice.
How can I tell if they actually have medical cleaning experience?
The questions they ask, or don’t ask, can be very revealing. If they aren’t asking questions about the number of exam rooms, or if you have any special type of needs in an operating or procedure room then you should consider other options.
The most important detail is always their customer service process
You should always make sure you understand what their communication or problem solving process is like. If they do not demonstrate excellent communication or customer service skills then you will likely struggle when trying to fix issues.
Unlike normal office cleaning, dealerships require a lot more window cleaning and usually have high shine showroom floors that need an experienced cleaner to look ready for customers.
Large facilities cleaned every night require high level cleaning experience
Few cleaning companies are mentally prepared to clean in the middle of the night every night of the week. Even fewer are capable of large facilities, and even fewer still can handle the unique requirements of a dealership.
That’s why experience and equipment are the bare minimum
Larger dealerships should require that any cleaning company they choose already have dealership cleaning experience, and come in with auto scrubbers or floor machines. Otherwise you are paying for cleaners to spend longer than they need to using a mop and bucket which usually isn’t as good a machine.
There are few places as sensitive and delicate as schools when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting. We need to protect our children and keep them safe. That’s why it’s so important you choose a janitorial cleaning company with school cleaning experience.
School cleaning is very different from normal office cleaning
You may come across experienced office cleaning companies with no experience cleaning schools. You don’t need to just run away, but you should have detailed conversations about their plan and how they might keep your schools clean. If they don’t present a reliable impression it might be a good idea to find someone else.
Every school is different
Daycares are very different from elementary schools which are very different from colleges. Especially with the younger children it’s worth holding out for someone with relevant experience.
It mostly comes down to communication
Just like everything else, you want to have open communication. When issues come up or details need to be addressed can you have a talk with your cleaners without them getting defensive? More importantly do you see improvement that lasts?
Cleaning churches and places of worship is quite different from other facilities. Many have full-time schools while others have classrooms being used during worship only. How do you know the cleaning company you choose is ready to handle your unique cleaning needs?
It starts with understanding your unique usage
By first looking at how your church is used every week you can communicate a custom cleaning schedule that works. Is your facility only used Wednesdays and Sundays, or do you have regular meetings most days of the week?
Communicate your usage with the cleaning companies you are considering
If the cleaning companies you speak with are not asking about your specific usage and cleaning needs then you might want to consider other options. No two churches are the same, so how could a cleaning company fully understand your needs without a detailed conversation?
Look for experience in churches and schools
Since most churches at least have classrooms for children during worship there are unique cleaning details that require experience. Not to mention sanctuaries and other high traffic multi-purpose rooms commonly found in churches. Your cleaning company should have a good plan for these cleaning needs based on experience.

We've been using Vanguard daily for about 8 months and have not had a single complaint. We've had large requests from new-move-in clean ups down to daily maintenance of a 6000+ sq foot office building. They take care of supplies, reminding us when we need things, and are timely with messages and invoicing. They are friendly, trustworthy, and think of everything for us. Would highly recommend for anyone considering a cleaning service.

Vanguard Cleaning Systems staff is the best I ever worked with and I have been in the Commercial Janitorial Business for over 20 years. They're very knowledgeable about their profession and will help you anyway they can. The training I got from Vanguard was second to none and they have various resources that will help you succeed in the Commercial Cleaning Business.
We are very pleased with the service our office receives. I think we've been with Vanguard for 3 years now. A lot of it has to do with the company's cleaning representative - Khalid. He does a very thorough job and sometimes he has to do a little more because we created a bigger mess. =) He is VERY pleasant and professional at all times and we are fond of him as A PERSON and consider him one of our co-workers (that just happens to only come once a week!). GREAT JOB KHALID and Vanguard is lucky to have you as an employee!
We have brought in a new cleaner and she is doing phenomenal. Great improvement from before. I really appreciate her efforts here. Attention to detail is on point. Easiest Service to use that I have in 10 years! They are always available and adjust TO MY NEEDS. By the way, their pricing is exceptional.
We are a small business with 24 hour days. We have had many cleaning companies over the past 35 years. I must say that this company is the best. The price was reasonable and the service is excellent.

We have had no issues with their cleaning services. The monthly invoices are always on time. The team is all very nice, and make a point to reach out, and are always very accessible. Also, they quoted us a great rate!"
I always dreamt about having my own cleaning business, but I was always afraid of the things that I heard about franchises. I came to Vanguard by pure coincidence. I was in a meeting with another franchise & the franchise gave me the names of their clients and I started calling these clients to see what their experience was with the franchise and a person that I called recommended me Vanguard.
Vanguard is one of the most exceptional company in cleaning. I have tried three other companies and Vanguard is one of the best! The staff are friendly,helpful and very supportive in whatever you need. The owners are down-to-earth people willing to sit with you and discuss your goals for your business.
Vanguard Cleaning System performs at the highest quality. Making sure our office is spotless clean for our patients the next day is their priority. I would definitely recommend if you are lookin for a reliable and professional cleaning company.

Things started out a bit rough, but the office personnel were wonderful about working with us to get things right and find the right crew to fit out needs. Since that change everything has been awesome!
