The Differences Between Domestic and Commercial Cleaning Services
October 22, 2020

Regular cleaning is essential no matter if it is a residential property or a domestic one. A clean home or workspace is not only presentable, but it can also have a positive impact on mental and physical health. With that being said, the requirements for both commercial and domestic cleaning are different. This automatically means that there are some key differences between commercial cleaning services and domestic ones. Since we at JAN-PRO specialize in commercial cleaning, we can testify that you should only hire specialized commercial cleaning companies for your commercial properties. The scale and the technicalities of commercial cleaning make it a lot different compared to domestic cleaning. In this article, we will tell you about the key differences between commercial and domestic cleaning services, so keep reading.


What Sets Residential Cleaning Services and Commercial Cleaners or Janitorial Services of OKC Apart?

As the name suggests, residential cleaners can only handle domestic or residential cleaning. On the other hand, commercial cleaning, and janitorial services of OKC manage complex and technical cleaning jobs at commercial properties and buildings. However, that is just the most apparent difference between the two types of cleaning services. Some key differences between residential and commercial cleaners include:

Diversity of cleaning spaces: One significant difference between domestic and commercial cleaners is the different kinds of buildings and areas they can tackle. While a domestic cleaner can handle the cleaning of various rooms, backyards, swimming pools, or bathrooms of a home, a commercial cleaner’s area of expertise spans over many different cleaning spaces. For example, we at JAN-PRO commercial cleaning specialize in cleaning a whole variety of different types of buildings, including:

  • Auto dealership buildings
  • Religious facilities
  • Bank buildings
  • Fitness Centers
  • Hospital buildings
  • Office buildings
  • Industrial buildings and manufacturing plants
  • Retail cleaning
  • Educational institute buildings
  • Rental properties
  • Restaurants and hotel buildings
  • Government office building cleaning
  • Stadiums and event venues

Tools for cleaning: Another significant difference between commercial and residential cleaners is the tools they use for cleaning. A residential cleaner might use simple cleaning tools such as cleaning brushes, sponges, mops, and buckets. A commercial cleaner uses many advanced tools and state-of-the-art cleaning materials and chemicals. Some of the ones used by us at JAN-PRO that residential cleaners do not have, include:

  • Hospital-grade disinfectants that are guaranteed to remove disease-causing viruses and bacteria from commercial buildings.
  • Industrial grade vacuums with up to four filters to make sure no dust particles escape into the environment.
  • Microfiber cloth with advanced dirt trapping properties.
  • Green cleaning detergents that are environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
  • Trained personnel with ID badges and uniforms for security reasons and a professional look.

Risk level: Domestic cleaners work in the relatively safe environment of homes where the risk level is low and there are no dangers involved while cleaning. On the other hand, commercial cleaners are trained to handle high risk and dangerous cleaning jobs such as working around heavy machines and areas that require specialized protective wear such as industrial buildings.

If you have been wondering what do commercial cleaning services offer that residential cleaners do not, we hope this article would have answered your question.
