1st: Thanks for starting the Janitorial forum. 2nd I don't do janitorial but have been asked a few times over the years to do so. It was mainly from the commercial carpet cleaning jobs i obtained. That's where i would first start, since you already have your foot in the door. Perhaps mention to them you have added this service, or mail them a letter stating the fact... wayne

Seems the longer you survive in business the more word gets around. We have great self standing insurance policies; most companies use payroll services which if your employee steals everything your company has the insurance fight is sure to be a long one and will least likely produce any settlement. I have high dollar bonding also; the standard is $5,000 I tender a $25,000 bond for employees. Also when you hire an employee it helps to keep them in line when you show them the weapon you'd use to kill them with if they screw you or your customers over. Just kidding; I never show them the weapon!!!;)

Cold calling, some BD to BD (business door) is always helpful establishing relationship with your local business owners and property managers. I would often pick a prospective client each week and treat them to lunch. Get to know them, their complaints and likes of their current service provider. It takes money to make money, and if spending an extra $15-20 on lunch to put myself in a better position is always a plus. A lot of Janitorial companies drop the ball by not staying in touch and in tune with their clients. Golfing, Bringing their office donuts, etc. will help keep your client happy and willing to forgive small mistakes made by your crew here and there.

Two good ways i would consider would be:

1) Register with your local and state governments and visit their Procurement websites daily for bidding opportunities, they are always looking to hire local business, especially in Janitorial.

2) Try to gain clients by working with a great Janitorial & Sanitary Supplier like www.ajmnino.comand use the products such as paper, can liners, chemical dispensing systems to get a foot in the door as a supply company then you can begin to build relationships. PLenty of Janitorial Services companies have started through selling janitorial supplies.

Hope it helps,
John

You need to attend a few weeks of training that is all. You will learn proper cleaning, how to handle and store materials, safety, and such things like that.
