The Difference Between Residential and Commercial Cleaners

Hygienic reasons aside, the cleanliness of a home or commercial facility has evolved to reflect an owner’s status. A well-groomed business space proves attention to detail is being paid to clients and employees. Often, even greater cleaning standards involve disinfection for some facilities.


The idea of cleanliness has changed over the centuries. With pollution negatively impacting our world, we know we must pivot from the destructive processes damaging the planet. Sustainable cleaning practices are a large part of our commercial cleaning industry.

For many facilities, cleaning disinfectants are essential, so the responsible usage of these products is crucial. Thorough training is part of the specialization of disinfectant cleaning.

JDI Cleaning Services is a leader in innovative commercial cleaning and disinfectant training practices.

Two things seemed consistent during the 17th and 18th centuries; a myriad of common diseases ravaging Europe generated a very high mortality rate, and also, hygiene and cleanliness were a scarce concern. These circumstances resulted in approximately 40 years of life expectancy.


We’ve come a long way from the historical statistics of minimal cleanliness. And similarly, specialized cleaning services within the industry have evolved.  


A professional commercial cleaning company is responsible for the washing, shampooing, vacuuming, waxing, and scrubbing of surfaces in all commercial, office, and businesses spaces, including the specializations of disinfecting services for certain facilities.

Examples of commercial spaces that require varying degrees of hospital-grade disinfecting services:


  • Dental offices
  • Doctor offices
  • Medical facilities
  • Laboratories
  • Health clubs
  • Airports
  • Hotels
  • Short-term accommodation rentals
  • Restaurant kitchens
  • School kitchens
  • Daycare facilities
  • Theatres
  • Train/bus stations
  • Grocery stores
  • Food manufacturing plants
  • Facilities that large numbers of people visit
  • Facilities where large numbers of people are employed


Residential cleaning embodies the idea of personal space with limited numbers of people. Commercial cleaning demands that sanitation standards be met for any number of people with unknown cleanliness requirements. 


Whether you are employing a residential cleaner or a commercial cleaner, a relationship is important.

Commercial cleaning is best carried out by a small organized team, trained for every scenario. Deciding which cleaning services your business needs is made easy if a checklist can be discussed and a professional standard contract is provided. Commercial cleaning must be a systematic dance of sorts, so management training must be part of a successful business wherever possible.

Businesses must consider their expenses, and so work experience is a factor that translates into the efficiency of dollars spent.

JDI Cleaning Services has developed a franchise-based business model that promotes responsibility, pride, and experienced efficiency in an industry that needs it most.
