When most people think "janitorial services," they're reminded of their high school janitor, mopping floors, and sweeping out the cafeteria.
In reality, there's far more that goes into janitorial services than meets the eye. But, if the company you hire is doing their job well, you won't even notice.
What you may notice is that your building's floors are cared for, there's no dust on the window sills, or that the office couch always looks like new.
But, if you don’t know what services are offered, you won't know to ask for these tasks to be completed. We created this list of janitorial services that are offered by most companies so you can know exactly what to expect.
3 Items Included in Janitorial Services
While all of the services listed below are valuable and important, your building may not need some of them.
Instead of paying for services that aren't necessary, request a custom proposal, where you can select the items you need.
We'll conduct a walkthrough and compare your list to what our experts recommend. We’ll make sure you understand what you're getting, with upfront costs and no hidden fees.

1. Floor Care
Floor care is among the most common services janitorial companies provide. But, not every company can clean every type of floor.
Do you have specialty floorings such as marble, stone, or hardwood floors?
You'll want to make sure you choose a company that provides refinishing and maintenance services for your unique floor care needs.
At Sentral Services, we provide floor care for the following types of floors:
- Raised Floors
- And other specialty floorings.
(Don't see your flooring on this list? Give us a call — 301-339-0517 — to find out if we can care for your floors.)
Don't let your company foot the bill for costly refinishing and restoration repairs.
Make sure the janitorial services you hire have experience with the maintenance requirements for your specific types of floors.
2. Complete Janitorial
Most companies seeking janitorial services are looking for an all-in-one resource.
They want a company to come in and clean all the furniture, floors, and windows. Trash removal and recycling might also be on the list of services they need.
When you choose Sentral Services to clean your building, you can have us:
- Clean your upholstery.
- Sanitize your restrooms.
- Clean your windows.
- Take out your trash and recycling.
- And powerwash your building.
Not every building needs all of these services, and that's where our company excels at saving you money.
We won't recommend services you don't need. Our experts will be honest and upfront about the services we recommend when you request your custom cleaning proposal.
3. Specialty Cleaning
When special events happen, your office requires additional cleaning. You need to ensure the company you choose can handle all your specialty janitorial needs.
Otherwise, you'll be stuck using multiple companies to get everything done.
At Sentral Services, we offer specialty cleaning for events and post-construction cleaning, as well as flexible manpower.
We understand that you need a company that is fast and reliable to help you clean up after events and construction jobs.
That's why we provide accurate and detailed quotes so our team can get to work on your cleaning project quickly.
Our workers are OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 certified. This means you don't have to worry about absorbing liability in the event of an accident.
We also supply our workers with PPE that complies with OSHA standards for construction sites.

Getting the Janitorial Services You Need
Understanding the services available arms you with the knowledge you need as you request bids.
Different companies have different specialties. You'll need to do your due diligence to ensure they will meet your cleaning needs.
Don't randomly choose any company to get a quote. Ask other business owners what company they use for cleaning and maintaining their buildings.
Listen to their feedback and take a look at their building for yourself. You'll be able to tell how good of a job their cleaning company is doing before you decide to get a quote.
You must do a background check on any company you plan on hiring. Plus, you'll be liable for an accident if a worker gets hurt cleaning your building. You'll need to ask them if they carry liability insurance.
Some of the questions you need to ask when you interview companies are:
- Can I see a list of references?
- Will you walk through the quote with me, so I understand what I’m paying for?
- Can you come to my building and do a walkthrough?
- Are you insured?
- What kind of cleaners do you use and why?
- Can I monitor your work?
- Can your workers be trusted to clean my building at night while no one is there?
