Why choose us for
office cleaning in chicago?
Our employees are specially trained to reduce contamination in corporate office buildings and we have dedicated training to address what the ISSA calls “Touch Point Cleaning.”
Touch Point Cleaning is critically important because disease, fecal matter, and bacteria are spread via touch points like door handles, light switches, hand rails, elevator buttons, and paper towel dispensers.
We also implement a full “Touchless Sanitation Program” to drastically reduce the spread of germs and viruses.
In many cases we have been able to get our corporate office cleaning clients state-of-the-art dispensers free of charge. Our office cleaning company has created a strategic partnership that can help you save up to 25 percent on consumables.
We truly go to bat for our customers. Even Babe Ruth would be jealous. Cleaning for health requires trained cleaning technicians and an office cleaning company that does not cut corners.
Spotless provides color coded microfibers and has an HAACP color coded training program. We have strict training to ensure towels used to clean the toilet are not used to clean the sink handles.
Our supervisors continue with onsite training to verify that microfiber towels in the bathroom are not used in the offices. Before we fully extend an offer, employees have to pass our training program.
Once hired, we perform onsite training to make sure our technicians are adhering to our cleaning protocols.

How Much Does Office Cleaning Cost?
The all-important question, what is the average or typical cost of office cleaning?
The national average is about 11 cents per square foot. In Chicago the minimum wage is $15/hr and Cook County and Illinois is fast approaching $15/hr as well. There are many factors to consider besides square footage.
We always start off by gathering basic details like the floor plans, current scope of work, and number of employees. Once we are on site performing a walk through, we will identify floor types, bathroom and fixture counts, layout, density, and any specific site requirements.
We will take pictures, detailed notes, and measurements to work load the facility. We are ISSA Certified Work Loading Specialists and consider all factors to provide the most accurate quote.
Accurate work loading ensures we maximize productivity for the best value. If we do not accurately work load and underbid, the cleaning quality will suffer and lead to poor service.
This is why going with the lowest bid is generally setting yourself up for failure. The work loading process dictates the work plan and directly affects operations and the front-line cleaning staff.
We take the walk through and estimating process very seriously. All estimates must be approved by operations and ownership for accuracy and to ensure success.
Top 5 questions to ask during your commercial & office cleaning company search
It’s important to identify all of the wants and needs of your business and its space when starting your search for a commercial cleaning company.
Not all janitorial services are created equal, so understanding your requirements beforehand will support you in doing proper due diligence when procuring cleaning services for your business.
You want to make sure that the cleaning company that you hire has all of the necessary liability coverages, can provide a complete suite of services that support the growing needs for your facility, and can guarantee a certain level of service and coverage.
It’s also vital that the cleaning company you go with has the proper certifications and training, adhere to health and safety guidelines, and can create a customized plan to help you save money on facilities maintenance costs, as well as accommodate for your seasonal needs.
So whether you simply need a deep cleaning once a month, or daily, ongoing services, here are 20 questions that you should ask yourself and the companies that you are vetting as you search for a new commercial or office cleaning company to ensure that you find the right match.
One of the biggest reasons why companies search for new commercial cleaning services is because service providers often do a great job out of the gate, but then, later, the quality of the services starts to dwindle. We’ve done our research to try to figure out how and why this happens, and we’ve found that many cleaning teams lack processes for accountability, both internally and to their clients.
Cleaning staff might start to show up late, leave early, or often don’t show up at all, which is why there is such a degradation in service. To combat this, and to provide a level of transparency and accountability internally and to our clients to ensure that we are exceeding our standards of service, we set up geofencing.
Geofencing allows for the monitoring of employees so that you can make sure the job is getting done in a timely manner (which saves you $$$). Our team isn’t allowed to clock in or out until they are within the geofence of the facility that they are assigned to clean. We know when they show up, how long they are there, and when they leave. If needed we can provide this information to our clients to rule out any staffing issues related to attendance.
The data collected can also be used to make changes for future cleanings, such as by adding or removing team members or equipment as needs fluctuate.
Post-cleaning inspection reports are great tools that not only show what exactly was done during the service, but also can highlight where modifications to your cleaning regimen will benefit your office. The cleaning company should make recommendations on services that will minimize risk and keep your office safe and maintained at the level that you expect.
Cleaning (and even deep cleaning) is not the same as disinfecting, so make sure that the cleaning company that you choose offers the latest disinfection and decontamination services to help fight the spread of communicable diseases. They must use products and equipment that are certified by the CDC and EPA in order to protect the health and safety of your workspace.
They also must understand protocols for what happens if/when someone in your facility gets sick, and what needs to happen to continue to operate safely.

The spotlight has been on cleaning services ever since the Covid-19 outbreak. Under increased scrutiny and analysis, it became clearer to the general public that the commercial cleaning and disinfecting industry is a lot more technical and complicated than most of us previously imagined.
There are many regulatory agencies that govern cleaning companies and specific industries, and there are niches and specialties within commercial cleaning that further complicates navigating requirements and regulations. OSHA regulates almost every industry, including commercial cleaning. Every facility has to have Safety Data SDS and properly labeled materials that meet OSHA regulations. In the medical cleaning industry, for example, you have to deal with JACHO from The Joint Commission (TJC), and at times the FDA.
If there is a slip and fall accident, you may be liable if the floors do not pass a minimum coefficient of friction. It’s important to hire a janitorial company that has all bases covered and will protect you.
Cleaning companies should have contingency plans in place to ensure that there is no interruption of service should there be personnel issues. They should have backup employees on reserve and effectively communicate with you any time that there is potential for a disruption in service.
