Cleaning Industry Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities

Cleaning Industry Trends, Challenges, And Opportunities

Trends in the cleaning industry change over time as the needs and desires of businesses evolve. Nowadays, and due to the global pandemic, the cleaning industry is largely driven by public concern over health. It’s essential that companies stay up to date and adapt practices for the unique demands of the market. Here are the most important trends in the cleaning industry.

Healthier Indoor Environments

Nowadays cleaning professionals are held to higher standards. In the past, commercial cleaning companies may have been cleaning mostly for appearance reasons, but today’s main focus has shifted to cleaning for healthier indoor environments. The spread of the COVID-19 virus has made cleaning companies the first line of defense when it comes to stopping diseases and contaminants from spreading. Healthier environments also account for the use of proper cleaning technologies, products, and processes. At Keep It Up we implement a green philosophy by using eco-friendly products during all of our cleaning processes to meet the established health and safety standards.

Vendor Consolidation

With competition increasing every day, many companies are wanting to have quality services while cutting costs. For this reason, many businesses are trying to consolidate their vendors to one, making it vital for cleaning companies to provide or expand their services offering a complete solution to client’s problems. At Keep It Up our services are not limited to only cleaning residential homes, we offer specialized services that meet all of our customers’ unique needs. Our list of services includes post-construction cleaning, office maintenance, recurring home cleaning, and window cleaning. 

Hiring & Training Trends and Challenges

Another growing trend is hiring quality employees and offering training practices. Staff can make or break a business, therefore hiring and keeping employees with experience is key in a cleaning company’s growth and sustain in the market. Commercial cleaners lose an estimated 55% of their customers based on inadequate cleaning practices. This number has made staff training a top priority in the last years, ensuring better training practices provides quality services and in consequence satisfied customers. 

At Keep It Up, we are always riding along with emerging tendencies in the cleaning industry to adopt new practices in our business and always provide top-quality service to our customers. With 15 years in the cleaning industry, we keep growing thanks to the trust of our clients, the excellent work of our employees, and our green philosophy for the environment’s wellbeing.
