3 Reasons to Hire Janitorial Services for Your School

Schools see a lot of traffic, which means they also have a good amount of cleaning needs. 

Whether you’re looking to reduce student illness or create a better learning environment, school janitorial services are one of the best investments you can make! 

If you’re considering outsourcing cleaning services, we provide some of the best school cleaning services in the bay area! Here are the top three advantages of hiring janitorial services for school.

The Benefits of School Janitorial Services

1. Everything is Cleaned and Sanitized

If you’ve opted to clean your school building yourself, you may be overlooking less obvious areas. Having a fresh pair of eyes will help keep your facility in excellent shape.

School cleaning services are designed to keep your facilities sparkling clean! 

Whether your school is big or small, Unified Janitorial Services provides commercial janitorial services for all your campus’s needs — even the inconspicuous ones. From bathrooms to classrooms and faculty areas, our cleaning experts will ensure every last inch of your school is clean and sanitized. 

Studies show that students have higher grades and better graduation rates in regularly cleaned learning environments. Clean hallways and faculty offices can improve the image and reputation of your school. 

2. Create Your Own Cleaning Program

Whether you're working around school events or holiday breaks, scheduling school cleaning may seem challenging. However, with a custom cleaning program, you have final say in when our cleaning crew shows up. If daytime cleaning doesn’t work for your school, opt for nightly cleaning instead! 

Unified Janitorial Services has staff available 24/7. That way, we’re able to work around your school’s hours and time constraints. 

Does your school have a specific request? No problem! We can help create a cleaning program suited for your classrooms, gymnasiums, and more. By bundling up on services like bathroom cleaning or window washing, you’ll save money over time! 

How Often Does My School Need to be Cleaned?

Ideally, schools should be cleaned everyday or every other day. High touch-points, like student desks, should be disinfected daily to prevent the spread of germs. 

Other items that should be sanitized daily include

  • Door handles
  • Handrails
  • Light switches
  • Computer keyboards
  • Lockers
  • Water fountains

To keep school carpets like-new, consider having them commercially cleaned every three to six months. However, this range varies depending on the amount of foot traffic in an area.

3. Save Time and Money

Believe it or not, outsourcing your school’s cleaning can save time and money! 

Think about it — cleaning things yourself means you have to buy supplies, which adds up. With school janitorial services, our team brings  their own equipment so you don’t need to buy your own. 

Additionally, your teachers and faculty probably don’t have the time to clean their space. By hiring commercial cleaners, you relieve your staff of any added stress so they can focus on their work. 

Not to mention, regular deep cleaning can help reduce teacher sick days — encouraging a more productive, profitable environment!

How Much Do School Janitorial Services Cost?

Speaking of costs – how do commercial cleaners charge for school cleaning services?


Some charge hourly, while others use a flat rate. Oftentimes, companies will do a walkthrough of your school to estimate how many staff members are needed. 

While we can’t speak for every cleaning company, at Unified Janitorial Services we charge based on the following factors

  • How large your school building is
  • Number of high-traffic areas (bathrooms, cafeterias, etc.)
  • What your cleaning needs are (carpet cleaning, window cleaning, etc)
  • The frequency of school janitorial services
