Each day has brought us new information about our future holds, so it’s hard for anyone to predict the upcoming months. Like other sectors, we can’t be certain of what lies ahead for the commercial cleaning industry. However, there is still reason for optimism because of a growing opportunity. Here are a couple of the trends that we have noticed – we think you’ll find that there are still so many reasons to be excited about the future of a commercial cleaning business!
New Importance to Cleaning
One of the trends that we have noticed is that commercial property owners are starting to become far more aware of cleaning for health. It’s hard to avoid the COVID-19 virus, it has been front and center on almost every media outlet for the past three months. With all of our newfound knowledge, it is the responsibility of commercial cleaning companies, like Image One, to educate clients on the best possible solutions.
At Image One, we are taking steps to make sure our clients understand why disinfecting and sanitizing their spaces is vital. Commercial properties are hubs for germs, shared touchpoints, and most importantly, lots of people. As an Image One owner, you’ll be prepared to help your clients uncover the best strategies to address their growing concerns.
Rebound Expected Post-COVID
When coronavirus first hit the states, businesses all across the commercial cleaning industry saw a dip in activity mainly due to the early closures of facilities nationwide. Now that we have a better understanding of what the virus is like and how we can stop it from spreading, job openings for commercial cleaners are skyrocketing.
According to ZipRecruiter, help wanted ads for janitorial services have seen a 75% surge from this time last year. What that number tells us is that more commercial businesses and facilities will plan to go on the offensive against COVID-19 when reopening. In that battle against the virus, commercial cleaning companies like Image One will prove to be our clients’ best secret weapon.
What Will Clients Look For?
Some companies have cut budgets, and while they understand having a clean space is now a necessity, the new economy might make people more careful about spending. Rightfully so, and a good commercial cleaning partner should be able to answer every question their clients have.
At Image One, we work alongside the client in order to customize the best possible cleaning package depending on their needs. When you are awarded an Image One franchise, you directly benefit from the reputation we have built the past decade.
