A clean workplace from the ground up is important for many reasons. It projects your business in the best light possible. Equally important, cleanliness means fewer germs and more productive employees. While many commercial facilities pay attention to dust on visible surfaces and clean restrooms regularly, floor care and carpets are easy to ignore. They’re under your feet and maintaining large square feet of carpets might seem like a daunting proposition.

But floor care should be an important aspect of commercial cleaning not least because carpets act as filter for every manner of germs and allergens. All the nasties in the air float on down to the carpet so getting rid of these periodically is a must to keep commercial facilities free of germs. A clean carpet also gives a professional atmosphere to your facilities and conveys a strong first impression.

Office Pride delivers thorough carpet cleaning as part of its services for floor care and can schedule deep cleaning according to an agreed upon schedule. Office Pride uses top-notch Green Seal certified commercial cleaning products to deliver the best results. Whether hardwood or carpets, Office Pride delivers the best in floor care and commercial cleaning from the ground up. Equally important, the janitorial cleaning business keeps your property management needs in mind and can create a custom schedule that will work for your budget and business.

When Disaster Strikes: White House, Tenn. Community Bands Together to Support Local Family After House Fire

A franchisee couple was left awestruck and deeply humbled by a community’s response to a sudden tragedy, with the franchise system leaping in to assist during a member of the Office Pride family’s darkest hour.

On the night of Jan. 3, a house fire broke out in a residential area off the intersection of Highway 76 and 31 W in the town of White House, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville. While the owners of the house, franchisees Brandon and Kristen King, were thankfully not at home at the time of the fire, the family’s beloved dog Bono was trapped inside. A good Samaritan at the gas station was the first to see the fire and quickly found a fire extinguisher before jumping in to fight the fire on his own. In a stroke of luck or divine intervention, a White House fire truck was driving through the intersection and noticed the individual as the call to respond to a house fire came through from dispatch.

Upon hearing the news, Brandon and Kristen King immediately rushed home. Kristen became the first and only one to make it to see the home in flames. On his way home, Brandon was involved in a car accident and was rushed to the hospital.

A firefighter was able to rescue Bono from a back bedroom of the home, and thanks to a K-9 oxygen unit on the truck that was only donated to the fire department a week earlier, was able to save the dog’s life.

“We are incredibly blessed, and even in the face of tragedy, we’ve been able to rely on our community, both at home and in the larger Office Pride system,” said Kristen. “We may have lost many tangible items from the fire, but we have been blanketed by love and support. On behalf of Brandon and myself, there aren’t enough words to thank each and every one of you who has helped us get back on our feet after this tragedy.”

After learning about the fire and the destruction at the Kings’ home, businesses and individuals both in the area and across the region immediately stepped up to help in incredible ways.

The local Hampton Inn, current “home” to Brandon and Kristen, sent their maintenance man to board up the house after Kristen expressed concern about glass from the blown-out windows and asked for information on a business that could board up the house. That same Hampton Inn employee, a close friend of the firefighter who saved Bono, also volunteered his services, saying, “You all are like family, I was happy to do it,” and refused Kristen’s offer of payment.

Fellow franchise owners of Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services from around the country quickly began a GoFundMe account to assist the Kings with the financial aspect of their losses, quickly raising more than $10,000 in just one week and is expected to continue to grow.

Kristen and Brandon have both expressed their gratitude to their community and to their friends, family and business associates as they work to rebuild after the fire.

“What we can take away from this experience is that people are truly incredible,” said Kristen. “We never could’ve imagined this kind of response and we are humbled. Bono, Brandon and myself are all doing much better.”

A Silver Anniversary Celebration for Today’s Best Business Cleaning Service

Twenty-five years ago, Todd Hopkins began a thesis for his Master’s degree. His goal was to implement faith-based principles into a commercial and janitorial business franchise model that was scalable and easy to enter.

Now, nearly two and a half decades later, the profitable and growing Office Pride brand is showing signs that it will surpass its original goals and become America’s leading business cleaning service. Just off the heels of the Office Pride 25-Year Anniversary Celebration and Annual Retreat, several franchise operators have earned awards that show why Office Pride slays its competition.

We treat your business like our business,” said David Stein of East Texas. Stein recently was awarded both the Integrity Award and Community Service Award. “We operate with integrity, day in and day out…from floor to ceiling, we make our customers our number one priority,” said Stein.

Two ways this business cleaning service outshines its competition include its community impact and involvement and the fact that it always goes the extra mile.

Not Just About the Bottom Line

Office Pride encourages each of its owner/operators to get involved in their communities. Many of the Office Pride owners serve on nonprofit boards and support local organizations to improve the lives of the community in which they serve.

Brothers Jason and Simon Courtney of Pensacola, Florida recently won the Franchise of the Year Award from Office Pride. The brothers make local community give-back a priority as they plan their business growth and expand their customer base at a manageable rate.

Each community is different, and there is no cookie cutter approach to cleaning,” said Jason. “Our business is relational and we recognize the need for loyal and trustworthy people taking care of your cleaning needs.”

It’s this relationship between Office Pride and its clients that earned Office Pride a 20% sales growth in 2016 according to Franchise Times Magazine.

Going the Extra Mile

It’s a foundational concept in the Office Pride Culture Book (yep, Todd Hopkins wrote his company’s own Culture Book!) And from the time a new franchise is born, each owner is educated on the vision, purpose, mission and values of Office Pride.

We are responsive, professional and consistent,” said Andre Truitt of Rapid City, South Dakota. Andre and his wife Karie won the coveted “Beverly McQueen Brand Ambassador” award this year. The couple points to striving to exceed customer expectations each and every time their staff enter a building.

Many janitorial and commercial cleaning companies attempt to short-cut to increase profitability. This is not part of the culture of Office Pride. Instead, Office Pride owners go the extra mile and learn the ins and outs of each of their client’s building needs. Then, the bid for cleaning services is custom-tailored to those specific needs and based upon a solid model of hard work and integrity.

We couldn’t be prouder of being Office Pride owners,” said Karie. “We get excellent support and training from Office Pride’s headquarters and we are able to implement the best the cleaning industry has to offer, including the top-rated Green Seal Technology.”

The True Cost of Using Dirty Sanitation Tools

Office Pride’s color-coded systems and professional cleaning tools prevent cross-contamination in office cleaning

Would you get rid of a tree stump using a kitchen knife? You need the correct tool to fit the job.

The same theory should extend to commercial office cleaning jobs, but it’s surprising just how many vendors continue to use inefficient residential cleaning supplies where industrial-strength materials are called for. Worse, in the interest of shaving off a few dollars they often use the same sponges and other materials from room to room. Instead of getting rid of germs, they might inadvertently be helping to transport them.

The true cost of dirty tools is a direct hit on your bottom line because of sick employees and absenteeism. Office Pride has more than 25 years of commercial cleaning experience and prides itself on delivering professional office cleaning that will make your business stand out and equally important, protect your employees from harsh germs at the workplace. Fewer germs at the workplace often lead to healthier employees, which in turn makes for increased productivity. There’s a direct correlation between the cleanliness and sanitation of your business and your official bottom line.

Office Pride combines Green Seal™ certified cleaning products with the latest equipment and technology, including micro-fiber mops, high-filtration vacuums and advanced technology floor care machines. Office Pride’s cleaning professionals are trained to work with our color-coded system which has been an effective way to stem cross-contamination. Break rooms, restrooms, waiting rooms, exam rooms, and even desktops get their own special treatment.

And before you think that such an efficient and well-executed office cleaning system might bust your budget, Office Pride offers comprehensive cleaning services at affordable prices. What’s more, Office Pride doesn’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Each business receives a custom quote and Custom Cleaning Specification (CSS), which can be tweaked over time as needs evolve.

Pride in our work, honesty and integrity are values woven into our mission. Green and efficient office cleaning supplies, our color-coded cleaning system and our core principles of customer service and always going the extra mile mean our clients receive top-notch cleaning that always makes their business shine.
