Office Pride’s School and Daycare Cleaning Is a Class Apart

Cleaning franchise wins top marks for meticulous attention to professional cleaning of educational facilities

The common narrative around schools and daycare centers is that they are a hotbed of germs. While you can’t help kids sneezing freely and not washing their hands, you can do something about the cleanliness and safety of your daycare business or school. You can ensure kids are coming to the best maintained facilities while minimizing the spread of germs with thorough professional cleaning.

Office Pride’s thorough daycare cleaning system ensures that every nook, cranny, desk and work surface kids are exposed to is precision cleaned. Employees of the national cleaning franchise take pride in their service delivery and are trained and vetted in all aspects of operational procedures.

While some cleaning agencies might use the same dusting rag or mops in the restroom and classroom, Office Pride works with a special color-coded cleaning system to avoid contamination of products and supplies. You can rest assured that each facility and room gets tailored, custom treatment. Office Pride’s commercial cleaning business also delivers extensive floor and carpet cleaning solutions to keep daycare centers and schools looking their best.

Parents can have peace of mind knowing that their kids are spending the day in top-notch facilities maintained by Office Pride. The national cleaning franchise uses only Green Seal™ certified products which are safe for everyday use. Instead of residential cleaning supplies that don’t do the job on a large scale, Office Pride uses professional cleaning systems and supplies.

Office Pride keeps daycare centers and schools and other commercial institutions looking their very best. A combination of color-coded cleaning systems, professional cleaning supplies and a highly trained staff means your institution will always shine. Office Pride also delivers a Custom Cleaning Specification for each client which means facility managers can dictate what will be cleaned when and modify the plan as needed.

With Office Pride, daycare centers and educational facilities need no longer be a refuge for germs but clean and inviting spaces.

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.

The christian business honored to host a special performance from Contemporary Christian musician, singer and songwriter  

Office Pride, the national faith-based franchise, kicked-off their 25th anniversary celebration at this year’s annual conference in Palm Harbor, Florida from September 27-30. The brand’s philosophy is rooted in celebrating franchisee successes as part of one large family and this was indeed the case as franchisees from all over the country networked and shared experiences and ideas over the four-day retreat.

One of the many highlights of the celebration was the awards ceremony in which special guest Phil Wickham joined the franchisees to memorialize their successes of the past and glorify the future with a special performance including This Is Amazing Grace, Your Love Awakens Me and more of his top hits. Audience members danced and sang along creating an incredible night full of love.

As attendees wrapped up this year’s retreat, Wickham rejoined the group the final morning for Reflection and preformed an acoustic set of songs to further inspire and excite the franchise family for the future.

Office Pride was honored to have Wickham join the celebration – it was a dream come true for CEO and founder, Todd Hopkins. As the brand expands and looks forward to 25+ more years, the christian business is dedicated to keeping its core values front and center and it was made clear by having Phil Wickham at the kick-off.

Office Pride Sensitive to Unique Cleaning Needs of Banks

Custom Business Cleaning Solutions Factor in Security and Sensitive Data

Office Pride has over 25 years of experience in the commercial cleaning industry and our success has largely been due to the fact that we go above and beyond in tailoring our solutions to your specific business cleaning needs.

We recognize that banks and financial institutions present a particular challenge in that they have to be kept spotless at all times while also preserving the integrity of sensitive data. We have worked with banks and have experience with trash removal procedures that are unique to financial institutions. Our qualified and vetted cleaning professionals know how to handle teller trash and we ensure all procedures are duly followed every single time we visit. Office Pride’s own robust internal color-coded cleaning procedures add an additional layer of rigor to deliver the highest satisfaction in business cleaning.

We work with high-security institutions like banks and know how to navigate a wide variety of alarms and coded access systems. Our skilled and trained professionals are vetted through a series of screenings and must sign confidentiality statements and key assignment agreements before they can work in banks. This ensures that they have limited access to the bank’s secure data.

Office Pride also recognizes that thorough business cleaning is a high priority for financial institutions that must present a professional image to the public. We consult closely with our clients to create a Custom Cleaning Specification that precisely meets your needs. The CCS will take all your needs into account including the handling of teller trash and the frequency and kind of work that will be executed with each visit.

In addition to routine janitorial jobs such as vacuuming and mopping, Office Pride’s roster of business cleaning services includes secure trash removal, restroom sanitizing, carpet spot cleaning, blinds dusting and cleaning, routine buffing, high speed burnishing, and the cleaning of walls, ceilings, and baseboards.

Office Pride delivers the whole package: custom cleaning solutions for your bank or financial institution complemented with stellar customer service and the promise to always go the extra mile. With our years of experience in the industry, see why many financial institutions bank on us for their business cleaning needs.

Tackle Summer Germs with a Proven Janitorial Service Brand

When you think of summer, you think of days at the beach and lake. You may think of travel and family vacations. But, you probably don’t equate summer with germs. One thing’s for sure: Germs don’t take a break for summer. In fact, this time of the year is the perfect breeding ground for germs.

Compounding the issue is the fact that this summer has been unusually humid. After a season of record rainfall in many parts of the U.S., homes and businesses are facing new concerns about germ control. It’s absolutely critical to make sure you stay on top of your janitorial cleaning needs during the summer season.

Three important components for tackling summer’s germs include keeping your office desktops and computers clean, maintaining your floors, and decluttering the workspace environment.

Keep Your Computers and Keyboards Clean

Did you know there are more germs that live on your desktop keyboard than on a toilet seat? Sounds crazy, but think about it. Most of us spend a good portion of our day in front of a computer. You may wash your hands every time you use the bathroom, but do you wash your hands every time you use your keyboard? We hardly ever think about the need for cleaning our computers or keyboards.

Enter Office Pride Janitorial Service. “Hiring the right company to service your office’s janitorial needs can increase employee productivity,” according to Olon Hyde, Director of Operations at Office Pride.

Office Pride has done extensive research on what it takes to ensure quality janitorial cleaning. With nearly three decades of servicing businesses nationwide, this proven brand knows that a clean office typically means fewer colds and flu come fall and that means a better working environment and increased productivity. “Happy employees thrive in well-maintained and well-cleaned spaces,” said Hyde.

Maintain a Clean Floor

Think about all the germs that are tracked in each day at any given business. And floor care can often be overlooked. That is a huge mistake for businesses. Floor care needs to be a top priority.

The floor care offered by Office Pride Janitorial Service really shines! “We pride ourselves on the state-of-the-art equipment and technology that our floor care specialists use,” said Hyde. Not only is Office Pride known for its attention to detail, it is also known for adhering to strict OSHA compliance. Using a janitorial service company that is environmentally safe is so important. And it can make the difference in maintaining a great company presence and keeping happy, healthy employees.

Declutter the Office

It makes sense. The more clutter in an office, the more surface space for germs to flourish. It’s important to encourage employees (yourself included) to keep their workspaces organized and neat. Operating from an organized space can increase productivity and help overall well-being.

A decluttered space allows a janitorial service company like Office Pride to come in and really give a thorough clean to the areas that need it most. Office Pride Janitorial has a great track record of retaining top-quality staff who you can trust and who know your office space well. They are experts at using the right chemicals and equipment to reduce the spread of germs.

Office Pride Janitorial can tackle the toughest germs. And, you’ll still get to enjoy the last few weeks of summer knowing that you’ve made the best choice for your business.
