Janitorial Services and Security – Is Your Business Protected?

When selecting a janitorial team for your business, the importance of safety and security of your business and the property within it should be top of mind. You have enough on your plate running a business, and making sure your office or building is secure while your janitorial team keeps your space spotless shouldn’t be a concern.

Our cleaning staff keep the safety and security of your space a priority – right alongside a thorough cleaning, every time! Read more to find out what makes our team so special, and why you can trust your business in our hands.

Security-Aware Service

Our team of professional cleaners is not only invested in making your business clean and tidy, but they also keep the safety and security of your property top of mind. Our cleaners operate with the highest level of integrity, ensuring your business is secure at all times while they are working. Locking the doors and being aware while working in your space after hours goes hand in hand with the other cleaning services they provide during their visit.

Experienced Cleaners

One of the ways that we ensure the security of your business is by not hiring temporary cleaners. Select Janitorial understands the importance of building a strong relationship between you and your cleaning staff. Our cleaners work with the same business over time, helping to build trust and familiarity between you and our team. With an experienced staff that makes sure that your business is left clean through consistent work, effort, and confidence, you know we will leave your business sparkling!

Security Clearance

We understand that you may need to know more about who is working in your space after hours. Some organizations, such as military or government buildings, require additional security clearance for their staff to be able to work in certain areas of a building. We have experience obtaining additional background checks and security clearances upon request. All of our cleaners are bondable, individually insured, and covered through WorkSafe BC. This helps to protect you and your business from any liability or risk.

Select Janitorial’s cleaners not only get the job done right, but will also ensure the safety and security of your business while doing their best work. Our team goes above and beyond to provide you and your business with the best service possible.

Choosing a cleaning service can be difficult enough – you shouldn’t have to worry about keeping your business secure too! Let us set your mind at ease. Give us a call today and let’s connect. We’ll set you up with a reliable, experienced, and trustworthy cleaning service tailored to your business.

5 Reasons To Hire Select Janitorial For Your Floor and Carpet Cleaning

With the rainy season behind us on Vancouver Island, we’re spending our days looking up towards blue skies and taking in sunny days. But another place we should be looking? Down at the carpets and floors of our businesses! Has the mud, rain, and dirt from the wet winter months got your flooring in bad shape? Select Janitorial can help – and today, we’re outlining the 5 reasons you should hire Select Janitorial for your carpet and flooring care.

The Right Tools for the Job

After months of wear and tear, most floors need more than a sweep to get back to looking their best. We use professional grade vacuums, carpet cleaners, and floor polishing equipment to handle even the most worn out flooring. We’ve invested in the right tools for the job, so you don’t have to.

Professional Knowledge

Different stains, and different floor coverings need different products and cleaning methods. Our staff have the knowledge and expertise to select the most effective cleaning products for your floors, as well as the experience to clean carpets and flooring without causing any further damage.

Consistent Upkeep or One-Time Cleaning

Whether you’re looking for regular floor maintenance or just an annual spring cleaning, we provide flexible cleaning packages that fit the needs and budget of your business. While consistent cleaning can help prevent future damage, we can also help with carpets and hardwoods that feel dingy after a busy season.

A Company With Local Focus

Not only do we provide exceptional cleaning services, but we are also a company that is focused on our people – both our clients and our cleaners. We pride ourselves on having dedicated, passionate staff that are well respected in their careers, who in turn provide amazing service to the local businesses that make Vancouver Island such a special place to live.

The Highest Standards

While we leave each space sparkling clean, some offices require additional levels of cleanliness – think, doctors, dentists, and veterinary offices. Our cleaners hold themselves to the highest standards of safety and sanitation, ensuring that your office remains sanitized, sparkling, and safe for your clients and staff as they move through your space.

Think your carpets are too worn out, or vinyl planking scuffed beyond repair? Give Select Janitorial a call today, and we’ll give you a free consultation to bring your flooring back to life!

We believe in providing people with opportunity, support, and skills. This really is more than just a job, this is an opportunity for them to give their family a life they’ve always hoped for.”

3 Reasons To Hire Select Janitorial For Your Local Business

When choosing a cleaning company, you may think that price is the only factor to consider.  But you may also want to ask yourself, “Does this cleaning company align with my business’s values?”, “Are they passionate about their business”, or “Do they support the local community like I do?” These are questions that can be hard to answer, but at Select Janitorial, we wanted to share three reasons why we think we would be the best fit for your small business.


We only work with the pros

Our janitorial staff are professional cleaners who are devoted to growing in their careers, dedicated to their clients, and committed to building long term relationships with the businesses they serve. We do not hire temps, or people who will clean your business once, never to be seen again.  We make sure the cleaners on our team are the right fit for our clients, and they remain a part of the Select Janitorial family for years to come.

For our clients, this means you receive consistent cleaning services, with a cleaner you trust and build a relationship with.

We match you with the right cleaner

We all have our areas of strength and expertise – and our cleaners are no different! Because we know our staff so well, we can help match the best cleaner with your business to suit your janitorial needs. Need someone who can sterilize every corner of your office? Or someone who can look past the wood chips in your workshop to make sure the main surfaces are ready to go? Different cleaners will be a better match for different spaces, and we make sure that we find the right cleaner for you and your space!

A business with heart

In addition to supporting local businesses, non-profits, and charities in Victoria BC, Select Janitorial is here to support someone else – our staff. Through building their careers at Select Janitorial, many new Canadians or those who may have only been able to take low-paying work are able to give themselves and their families a quality of life in Victoria that they may not have otherwise had.

We focus on treating our cleaners with respect, providing them with independence, and supporting them while they grow their careers and make a living wage. As a socially conscious company, we are not in the business of paying our cleaners bottom-dollar for our own profits. We believe that when our clients win, and our cleaners win, Select janitorial wins!
