Green janitorial services are the perfect solution to your church cleaning challenges.
Reasons to Consider a Professional Service for Church Cleaning
Growing churches present a friendly face to visitors.
Part of that means a neat, orderly and clean building from the front door all the way to the back.
The church staff is already going in several different directions at once.
The pastor and his assistants have plenty to do just taking care of the people.
Church members will volunteer to come clean the sanctuary and the foyer but may balk at being asked to clean the restrooms.
A professional cleaning service will take care of everything.
You can even have special requirements, such as making sure all back pillows are placed precisely in the same spot on the pews.
If you have ever listened to someone complain about their cushion on a pew being disturbed, you know the value of having the everything placed just so.
The pros get it clean. If the job is not done right, they come back without complaining.
If your church members volunteer to clean, and they don’t get it right, you risk making them very mad if you point that out.
If you ask them to come back and re-clean, they may be mad enough to cause problems within the church.
Your church members and visitors have varying tolerance to dust and other allergens.
You can tell the cleaning service to leave out certain brands and kinds of cleaners and be sure it will be done.
When volunteers come clean, they may bring whatever cleaning supplies they have on hand.
Cleaning can involve some pretty dangerous chemicals.
It can be risky too.
While running a vacuum cleaner is not very hazardous, climbing a ladder to clean a chandelier poses a very risk of falling.
In today’s litigious society, some people are looking for an excuse to sue someone.
If a volunteer falls or mixes the wrong cleaners in a bucket, the church could be on the hook for some significant financial claims.
Professional cleaners carry workman’s compensation insurance to cover this.
Churches are a focal point for social activities like funerals, weddings, baptisms and more.
The church needs to be looking its best for these events.
Professional cleaners will make sure it does.
When the activity is over, the cleaners can come in and take care of what’s left behind.
A church pastor’s job is to take care of the people.
A professional cleaning service’s job is to get the building clean.
Volunteers often want to spend more time talking to the pastor or the staff than cleaning.
Again, you have to be careful about how you treat the volunteers.
When you sign a contract with a cleaning service, you get a guarantee they will be there on time.
They will stay until the work is done.
You know exactly how much it will cost and how often they will return.
Unlike volunteers, who are well-meaning and dedicated, a professional cleaning service is paid to be there.
Volunteers have lives they want to live.
If it is a choice between cleaning a church or going to a ball game, well, the church can wait.
The pros will be there.
No Supervision Needed
Honesty and trustworthiness are core requirements to become a Vanguard Cleaning Systems franchise, and we perform in-depth background checks on all of our applications.
This means you don’t have to waste valuable time to check on the cleaning service to make sure they are getting the job done.
Conversely, church volunteers may need supervision to ensure tasks are completed on time and according to expectation, as well as health and safety requirements.
Church’s are special places that require attention to detail and a high level of cleanliness to affect the proper atmosphere.
To be effective, a church cleaning vendor must be efficient, cost-effective, and highly professional.
