3 Ways Office Pride Loves Our Janitorial Service Clients

Thanks to Valentine’s Day, February is affectionately known as the Month of Love. And when you walk into any office or medical space, you’re likely to see decorations with images of cupid, hearts, and sweet messages of love.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to celebrate love all-year long?

At Office Pride, we do! We love our janitorial service clients and go out of our way to dote on them. And because we know there are plenty of choices out there, we want you to understand what makes us different.

We start with a faith-based program that is committed to honoring God and loving others. Our janitorial service program was designed by our founder Todd Hopkins nearly 26 years ago as a Master’s project while still in college. Hopkins believes that his company offers janitorial service that exceeds the client’s expectations…every time. He believes, along with the 110 other franchise owners throughout the nation that Office Pride is different because of its desire to live out Biblical principles.

With this mission in mind, there are three ways Office Pride janitorial service excels: We connect with our customers, we consistently give 100 percent, and we show we care.

The Importance of Connecting

We know what you’re thinking. Every janitorial company says the same thing, right? They all make promises of the perfect clean. So how does a business in need of cleaning service choose? Online Business Columnist, Maggie McCormick, recently wrote about the need for janitorial service. “You’ll probably find several office cleaning companies in your city, so you’ll have to choose the one that’s right for you. Though you may be looking to save money, the company with the lowest cost isn’t always the best deal,” she advises.

Solid advice indeed. That’s why we make connecting with our clients a top priority. Our franchise owners are seeking long-term relationships. So we go out of our way to establish a great working relationship, one built on trust, respect, and a genuine concern for getting the job done well.

Consistency Is King

In the world of janitorial service, providing consistent, quality work is absolutely critical. Many companies say they will honor your schedule and your specific needs. But the reality is there is high turnover in the janitorial industry. And that’s tough when you’re entrusting your space after hours. At Office Pride, we pride ourselves on delivering consistency to our clients. We consistently keep the same staff, so you know and trust who is in your building night after night, day after day. Many of our franchise owners are veterans and retired executives who understand the need to follow protocol. They are hard-working, trustworthy men and women who want to earn your business and keep you happy.

Office Pride’s reputation is built on consistently providing the best janitorial service. We’re happy to give you references to talk to our existing customers.

We Show We Care

We treat each person, whether it’s the receptionist or the CEO, with the same love and respect that we give to our immediate family and friends. Have an issue that needs to be resolved quickly? At Office Pride, we make ourselves readily available via text, email, and phone. We work out of home offices, with a central headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Any research on our two and half decade company will show happy customers. And we attribute that to staying true to The Golden Rule of treating others as we would want to be treated.

Truth is, we love what we do. Our clients are our bread and butter. So we go out of our way to spread the love, 365 days a year. To learn more about what makes Office Pride different, call us at 727-754-5990.

For a Clean Space, Start with Clean Tools

office pride cleaningThere’s a lot more that goes into a properly cleaned and sanitized space than meets the eye. At Office Pride, we have a comprehensive color-coded cleaning system that stops cross-contamination and we hit all the spots where germs hide – but it’s also important to remember that the tools themselves need to be cleaned.

From mop and broom handles to trash cans and vacuums, each tool is handled daily by people, and the truth is that human beings are germ machines. Cleaning tools work hard for our cleaners, and we want to make sure that they don’t accumulate bacteria or odors that make cleaning more difficult.

Here are some key items that need to be thoroughly cleaned:

  • – Sponges and rags
  • – Cleaning brushes and toilet bowl brushes
  • – Mops
  • – Microfiber cloths
  • – Brooms
  • – Vacuums
  • – Floor care machines

This list can seem daunting – that’s why Office Pride cleaners are trained, uniformed, OSHA certified and specifically briefed on your exact Customized Cleaning Specification. Office Pride also uses Green Seal™ certified cleaning products and the latest equipment and technology such as micro fiber mops, color coded cloths, high filtration vacuums and advanced technology floor care machines to manage spaces as diverse as churches and daycare facilities to banks and commercial office space.

Don’t Neglect Winter Cleaning in Your Commercial Facility

The cold weather ushers in the reappearance of hats, gloves and heavy coats, and also the return of the salt stains, grit and slush that define the season.

Office Pride understands the special challenges presented by winter, we know that rock salt, sand, grit, mud and moisture can wreak havoc on any commercial facility. We recommend working with your commercial cleaner to address these specific needs, beginning with more frequent vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, polishing and buffing of the floors to remove the remnants of salt stains, dirt and more. Not only is this a great first impression for a facility, it also means that customers will be safe and protected from slips and falls.

Additionally, winter means flu season – more people than ever are coughing and sneezing, and frequent disinfecting and cleaning of doorknobs, handles, faucets, tables, desks and flat surfaces where germs breed are incredibly important to maintaining the high quality of health and safety your facility wants to be known for.

Between germs, dirt, salt and snow, winter can be tough on a commercial facility. That’s why you need experts on your side. Click here to find an Office Pride near you – we’ll set you up with a unique cleaning plan to fit your needs.

Business cleaning during the holiday season

It’s a holiday season and 2016 is almost over. For many businesses, it means celebration and partying. Why not? It’s an ideal time to conclude another fruitful year with a bang, and to give way for the commencement of another promising year.

However, companies should not also forget that the holiday season is as well an ideal time for business cleaning; that is, taking time to clean the physical office.

Here are some compelling reasons why:

Many employees are on a vacation leave. Take advantage of the holiday to do a general business cleaning – while many of your employees or co-workers are away for a vacation. It is going to be a lot easier for your commercial cleaning company to make your business facility spotless clean while your workers are not around. Plus, it can be a treat for them when they find out that their workstations are totally clean – free from dust, beverage spills, and clutter – when they are back for work.

A business facility deserves some treat. No, it is not just the workers deserve some treat but the facility (they physical office) itself as well. Perhaps the floor received thousands of foot traffic this year or a thick layer of dust has already accumulated in the upholstery, or the restroom might have suffered from the natural wear and tear. All these need some treatment and the best way to do it is to hire a proven expert commercial cleaning company in your area such as the Office Pride. Doing some routine cleaning can help maintain the integrity of your physical office, which can help it to last longer.

It’s good to start a new year with a fresh and clean office. When an office is spotless clean, it sends good vibes to employees, which can help them become more inspired and therefore more productive in their work. Business cleaning during the holiday season provides an opportunity to jumpstart your business right at start of the year. Indeed, it is a good way to start the coming year fresh and renewed. Remember, a clean and clutter-free office means a clean and clutter-free mind – giving you a clear vision needed for an effective business decision-making.

Reduce Office Irritants, Beginning with Dust and Allergens


Office Pride is committed to providing safe, clean work environments to commercial facilities in the communities it serves, beginning with the basics – an allergen and dust-free workplace. As any homeowner can attest, dust needs to be dealt with constantly. It builds up, making a usually sparkling space seem dull, uninviting and unprofessional. In addition, employees are exponentially more productive in a healthy environment free to allergens.

Many people are allergic to dust mites, which are related to spiders – invisible to the naked eye, dust mites hide in carpets, furniture and curtains, as well as in beddings and linens in health care facility settings. They often cause allergic reactions in people, including wheezing, coughing, itchy eyes and skin and runny noses.

The best way to reduce dust mites is simply consistent cleaning – damp dusting, mopping, cleaning surfaces, high-filtration vacuuming, upkeep of mats and carpets, air conditioning maintenance and humidity control.

Needless to say, commercial cleaning is the best way to combat dust mites and allergens, and Office Pride’s dedication to providing the best cleaning service means that your commercial space will be free of these unpleasant allergens and looking its best.

Office Pride’s business cleaning, office cleaning, and building maintenance services are guaranteed to be a thorough cleaning, each cleaning. We strive to improve the look of any facility and provide clients with the confidence they deserve. Our, employees are trained to give your office or facility the most thorough cleaning it has ever had, every time. Office Pride delivers the service you expect, with the integrity you deserve.

Why choose a commercial green cleaning company

Lots of businesses are hiring a commercial green cleaning company today not mainly because it’s a trend but because they have realized the real value of going green in cleaning their facility for their business. Many business owners today have understood the science behind the green cleaning and its undeniable benefits.

Here are some compelling reasons why go for commercial green cleaning

Healthier Office – Companies that offer commercial green cleaning services (like Office Pride) can deliver top notch quality cleaning results without compromising the health of the people in the facility, and this is by using environment-friendly cleaning solutions.

Better Air Quality – With green cleaning, the stench of strong chemicals that are common in traditional commercial cleaning is avoided. Office Pride for instance uses cleaning products that are Green Seal certified, which means, the company only uses cleaning solutions that have passed the standards for environmental friendliness (good for environment and people). Better air quality means better health.

Better Productivity – Cleaning an office in a healthier way provides the benefit of better productivity. An office that is spotless clean/sanitary reduces the risk of sick days for employees, which means more time for work, resulting to better productivity.

More economical – Some businesses are still having a second thought of going for a commercial green cleaning because of this common misconception: it’s expensive. The truth is, green cleaning can be more economical as one can even make a cleaning solution from natural products that can be found at home (e.g. Hydrogen Peroxide as an alternative to bleach).

Some signs that your commercial cleaner values green cleaning

  • It educates clients and potential clients about the importance of commercial green cleaning for a more sustainable environment
  • It faithfully follows the standards imposed by the authority on environment-friendly cleaning practices; it is transparent with its cleaning process
  • It promotes green cleaning through the use of environment-friendly cleaning solutions in its cleaning program (like Office Pride, which uses Green Seal certified products in cleaning)
  • It offers incentives for clients who are going green with the cleaning of their business facility (e.g. discount, added services)

Office Pride Takes Health and Cleanliness to the Next Level with Color-Coded Cleaning

officepride sanitation colorcodedOffice Pride takes its commitment to providing clean, safe work environments to the communities it serves seriously – and research has proven that improving the indoor environmental quality of a building improves employee performance and satisfaction while reducing allergens and absenteeism. It’s clear that workers are more productive and happier in a clean environment, and customers appreciate sanitary conditions, especially restrooms and floors.

But workplaces can be a cross-contamination nightmare – between door handles, restrooms and desk areas, there’s no end to the ways that germs can spread. And in an effort to cut costs, many commercial cleaning companies also cut corners – at the expense of their clients.

That’s why Office Pride has put into place the Color-Coded Cleaning System, which prevents cross-contamination between restrooms and other office areas such as break rooms, waiting areas, exam rooms, play areas, offices and desktops using color-coded products, cloths and instruments.
