Cleaning Industry Trends in 2022
Each new year often brings interesting developments and changes to cleaning industry trends, especially for janitorial service providers like us at Image One. One New Year’s resolution that seems to remain popular year after year is deciding to be healthier and cleaner. Here, we’ll examine three trends and detail how Image One presents a fantastic opportunity for franchise owners to hit the ground running in 2022.
1. Cleaning for Health and Limiting the Spread of COVID-19
The further we can put COVID-19 in the rearview mirror, the better. Doing so will require communities to find the right partners for their cleaning services, particularly in locations with shared spaces. To meet strict health protocols, many business owners and property managers acknowledge that they will need to partner with a commercial cleaning service that can sanitize an entire common area, such as an office designed for business meetings or a restaurant dining room.
Image One’s resources allow our franchisees to go above and beyond, cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting surfaces on a property, with specialty services for hard surface floors, carpets, windows, and more. Our comprehensive commercial cleaning resources kill germs and limit the potential spread of COVID-19, putting your clients in a better position to return to normal in 2022.
2. Certified Training for Cleaning Professionals
Keeping a clean environment in a shared setting is undoubtedly a total team effort. However, maintaining a sanitary space can be challenging for providers who only know the basics, often because they lack the training and expertise that many property managers demand from those they hire within the commercial cleaning industry.
Image One franchisees complete a comprehensive training program to ensure they’re fully prepared to serve their clients. The program is broken up into modules that allow you to better process the training that, in addition to in-classroom, includes on-the-job training with an Image One professional and on-site observations. Most new franchisees complete the program and start working in the field within a week. This training provides business insights into Image One’s processes, operations, and relationships with clients to welcome franchisees into the Image One family.
Our initial training immerses new franchisees in the industry and shows how Image One is leading the way as a top brand. Putting this level of knowledge and resources behind you will help clients trust in your work as a member of the Image One family. So, no matter what industry, role, or walk of life you come from, you’ll be fully prepared to take on the role, and once your commercial cleaning franchise business is up and running, you’ll also have access to our 24×7 support team that can help you overcome any challenges you might encounter along the way.
3. Environmentally Friendly Cleaning
Like those in many other industries, commercial cleaners have become more mindful of the environmental impact of their work. While this has required some changes to standard practices over time, green cleaning services have also proven more efficient and effective.
Image One is a leader in the industry for utilizing green cleaning practices whenever possible, both in terms of the cleaning solutions we use and the techniques our staff employ. Our green cleaning services will not only benefit the health and environment of your community but also make your clients’ property more sanitary than previously thought possible.
Image One franchisees will be well-positioned to keep pace with not only these 2022 cleaning industry trends but any future developments that may affect our essential work.
