Annual janitorial cleaning contracts are no good
If a cleaning company is good at what they do, and they did a good job at establishing pricing based on accurate services then there should be no need for an annual contract. It only helps the cleaning companies, not you.
We’ve seen many commercial cleaning companies offering satisfaction guarantees without any other explanation or support. What does this mean? Are they going to give you your money back?
If that guarantee was legit why do they need to lock you into an annual contract?
Vanguard Cleaning Systems of Tampa & Orlando only does month-to-month cleaning service agreements because we strongly believe we should be doing our best everyday, and if you aren’t happy you should not be stuck. We have worked hard to select excellent independent franchise owners to work with and our experienced customer support office team is excellent at responding to and correcting issues when they come up.
With the right people and processes there is no need to trap customers in annual contracts
If we are working with high-quality independent franchise owners, and our office customer support team is providing great communication and problem solving then there is no need for long contracts. The nature of the cleaning industry makes it difficult to trust a company claiming 100% guarantees without explanation.
Be weary of companies with guarantees and long contracts
Not all contract cleaning companies are bad and not all no-contract cleaning companies are good, but this should help guide you towards the right commercial cleaning company for you as you consider your options.
What excellent customer service looks like in the janitorial cleaning industry
Vanguard Cleaning Systems of Tampa & Orlando janitorial businesses have provided excellent services to any and all industries. We’ve been in business since 2002 and have over 150 janitorial businesses we work with, so it is very likely we have extensive experience servicing any type of facility you have.
Medical or healthcare cleaning requires special care and attention
Healthcare facilities require special attention and a different level of cleaning services. If you don’t get the feeling that the cleaning companies you are talking to have experience cleaning in the healthcare industry it would be wise to explore other options.
Keeping kids safe is what school cleaning is all about
It is incredibly important to have experience with daycare cleaning. Would you want your kids crawling on dirty floors? You learn quite a lot after cleaning private schools and colleges, so make sure you find a cleaning company that has been there before.
Dealership cleaning is tough, but if you have it figured out there shouldn’t be a problem
Walls of glass and high shine showroom floors are meant to make cars look great. Fingerprints and smudges can ruin first impressions, so finding a cleaning company that has cleaned dealerships is crucial. Unless you want to risk it.
Janitorial services for all industries
The janitorial businesses we work with are experienced pros, and you can rest easy knowing they have experience serving any type of office or facility there is. We would love to hear how we can help if you are interested in getting a custom quote for janitorial cleaning services.
Industries we serve
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?
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.

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.

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!
