What to Expect from Janitorial Services in San Antonio

When it comes to finding a reliable janitorial service for your San Antonio-area business, you might be feeling overwhelmed. With so many janitorial services to choose from, how can you be sure you’ve picked a cleaner who will leave your San Antonio-area business not only looking clean, but also completely disinfected?

At Jan-Pro® of San Antonio, our years of experience providing consistently spotless janitorial services has taught us exactly what goes in to making a great cleaning company. To help you find the right janitorial service for your business, we’ve come up with a list of three aspects to consider when vetting a potential cleaner.

What to Consider when Vetting a Potential Cleaner

When choosing the right janitorial service for your San Antonio-area business, three components to consider are:

  • Cleaning Methods. Where some janitorial services will use the same cleaning method for every San Antonio-area business they clean, others will take a more customized approach. Choosing a janitorial service that customizes their cleaning plans to your facility’s needs will ensure that no area of your business is overlooked in the cleaning process.
  • Cleaning Supplies. While on site, the health and safety of the people who use your facility is in your hands. That’s why it’s so important to choose a janitorial service that uses cleaning products and systems with a proven track record for safety and hygiene.
  • Cleaning Results. Any reliable janitorial service will have methods in place to track the cleaning results they deliver to your San Antonio-area business. A cleaner who tracks their results is able to ensure that each cleaning they provide is as detailed and thorough as the first.

JAN-PRO of San Antonio’s Exceptional Janitorial Services

At Jan-Pro of San Antonio, we rely on an exclusive three-system approach to ensure our janitorial services are consistently exceptional. Our services start by using our Signature Clean® system to create an industry-specific, customized cleaning plan for every San Antonio-area business we clean. We then deliver our cleaning using our Jan-Pro Technics® suite of advanced cleaning systems and technologies. Finally, we measure our cleaning results using our Jan-Pro Tracker® system. This way, we can be sure our janitorial services are always as efficient and effective as possible.

Safe School Cleaning from JAN-PRO of San Antonio

At Jan-Pro of San Antonio, we understand the danger of using harsh and harmful chemicals when cleaning colleges, preschools and schools.

EnviroShield® uses proprietary spray-application technology to reach areas other cleaning systems can’t. It’s designed to disinfect hard-to-reach and hard-to-clean surfaces like computer keyboards, carpets, and fabrics.

Another way our cleaning services protect the health of San Antonio-area preschool, school, and college students is through our HEPA-filter vacuums. Our quiet-cleaning vacuums remove harmful airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns in dimeter, helping students with allergies and asthma breathe easier.

Investing in Yourself
14 Apr 2016

Invest in Your Future with Jan-Pro

With Tax Day looming around the corner, this year why not invest in yourself? According to recent statistics released by the IRS, almost 40 million tax refunds worth nearly $125 billion had been issued as of Feb. 20, 2016. Are you one of those 40 million that will be getting a return this year?  How will you spend your tax windfall, on a shopping spree? a vacation? or buy a new car?  All of these things are nice and may be well deserved as a fruit of your hard work. But this year why not consider investing in yourself instead of paying the car dealer or cruise line?

Making an investment in your future may not be something that will give you the instant gratification of a new car or vacation.  But think about this, when the vacation is gone, all you have are the photos to remember it by. Guess what, new cars eventually become old cars and they will need to be replaced or repaired.

So what do we mean by invest in yourself? Perhaps investing in yourself is paying off a credit card or putting more money into your IRA, both are solid investments in you. Maybe we should change the catch phrase to invest in your future.  

Let’s face it, when we call your tax return a windfall, it really isn’t. According to Merriam Webster a windfall is, “a piece of unexpected good fortune, typically one that involves receiving a large amount of money.” Your tax return is not good fortune, it is a refund of money that you earned, not money that you’ve found. This year, why not invest in your future and the future of your family?

According to an article from the February 2010 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine, the Great Recession spelled boom time for the Cleaning Industry Franchises. In fact, during the Great Recession 6 out of 10 of the fastest growing franchises were commercial cleaning companies. Why? Because everyone needs their trash emptied and toilet cleaned. During this same time, by conservative estimates, the United States lost 34.4 Trillion dollars in wealth. Losses to mutual funds, losses to retirement funds, IRAs and 401ks.

So this year, when you think about investing your tax refund, why not invest in a Jan-Pro Franchise? Buying a Jan-Pro Franchise is an investment that truly has no limit to your income earning potential. You can grow your franchise as large you want, based on how much work you want to put into your business.

Since 1929, the US has experienced 15 recessions all of which have caused loss of income, loss of jobs and general financial heart ache for families. This year, invest in yourself at tax time and purchase a recession proof Jan-Pro Franchise.

Spring Cleaning with Jan-Pro

Day light savings time and the first day of spring are right around the corner. Out with the cold doldrums of winter and in with the rejuvenating and renewing of springtime. It has become part of our culture to start off fresh in mid-March by giving our businesses or homes a thorough spring cleaning. One of the reasons for this is that with the longer days of daylight and sunshine in the mornings, it’s easier to see the dust and cobwebs that have accumulated over the last 5 months.  As the seasons change, from winter to spring, it’s always more enjoyable to work in a spotless environment.

Here are some things that might help you clear your workspace out and prepare for the spring and summer seasons ahead:

Schedule an official spring cleaning day. Have everyone set a date on their calendar as the official office purging day. On your spring purge day, set a goal of removing all piles of old paper. These can be sorted and shredded or if they are important and must be saved they can be scanned. If paper isn’t your problem but digital clutter is, send out the suggestion that everyone clean up digitally. Have your colleagues clear out their email boxes to free up some digital space. This will also help with their organization, allowing them to perform their jobs more accurately with less time.

Clean up the company bulletin board. Ensure that it is reflective of the current season and that it has all of the proper dates for upcoming events and deadlines and that everything on the calendar is up to date.

Hire a commercial cleaning company to perform a deep clean. Aside from the many things that you and your staff can perform for themselves, there is nothing that compares to a deep clean of your office to get the season started right. If you don’t have a cleaning service, don’t worry. At Jan-Pro, we would be happy to give you a quote for a one time spring deep cleaning. Our prices are reasonable, our work is guaranteed and our franchisees are trained professionals.

Have your current cleaning company perform a spring clean/deep clean for you. If you’re already a Jan-Pro customer, ask about a spring deep clean. It’s the perfect way to freshen the place up while getting rid of those winter doldrums. With our branded processes at Jan-Pro, you can rest assured your building will be cleaned properly and it will be germ free. This will give you the confidence that your spring will not only be happy but healthy.

When the new life of spring is starting to bloom, call the experts at Jan-Pro. We will help you bring some of that spring sunshine and rejuvenation into your facility with a spring deep clean.

Anita Thorne, Legal Assistant by Day, JAN-PRO Franchise Owner by Night

Although Anita Thorne loved her full-time job as legal assistant at the Washington Law Firm in Charleston, S.C., she had always yearned to be a Business Owner.  She wanted to be able to build a nest egg for travel that raising three children had not yet permitted her to do.

Her parents encouraged her to consider commercial cleaning which seemed like a low risk way to get started. Encouraged by another franchise owner, she made an appointment at the Mt Pleasant, S.C. JAN-PRO office with Mark Henderson, JAN-PRO Regional Director. She learned with JAN-PRO, she could continue in her day time job while working in the evening to build up her business.

So, eight years ago Anita bought a JAN-PRO Franchise for $950. Since then she has built up the business to $11,000 per month with 15 employees.  She feels JAN-PRO will be a great legacy for her three grown children and one grandchild as well.

One of the things she loves about JAN-PRO is being able to call other franchise owners for advice. It’s a personal network she has found helps her solve day-to-day management issues at times.  One of those has been a challenge with turnover.  Rodney Collins, her mentor, has helped her to work through challenges with the employees that are part of her teams.  Anita credits her success to her “state of mind, the communications with her team and the support from JAN-PRO’s Charleston Owners and Rodney Collins.”

On a typical day, Anita Thorne leaves her law firm at 5:30 and dawns her khakis, blue polo shirt and name badge to begin working for her JAN-PRO customer accounts.  She uses a checklist to ensure that all the job tasks are completed. She believes it is very important to establish and maintain trust with each team member.  She manages 8 of her 18 accounts which range from doctor and lawyer’s offices to property management customers and a restaurant.

Anita explains, “You have to make up your mind that you can run your own business.  It’s hard work, especially in the beginning. It’s important to set a goal for yourself and work hard to achieve it.  Having a personal relationship with each client is very important to success.  The better relationships help you to keep them happy. “

As an example, she continues, “I just called another law firm that I’ve had for the past three years.  I check in every other week to ensure that everything has been cleaned up properly.  We build long term relationships with each client and we get to know them and their families.”  This client recently sent her a Facebook request. “ I’m a people person and that makes the difference with my clients,” she adds.

Anita mentors two other new Owners who recently started out.  A lot of new Owners don’t realize the amount of time and energy required to succeed.  She stresses how important it is to understand the time commitments and to be dedicated to customer satisfaction.

Over the past couple of months Anita started having a dinner together with her team on her dime as a way to thank them for their service to their customers.  It’s her way of keeping them motivated and to share in the work that they have each month.

Anita says, “I’m 47 now, but I want to be able to travel by age 60.  Since I started my part-time business, I am building up to my long term goal of a business that will continue to pay dividends to me and my family.  Family is my top priority. JAN-PRO helps me to reach my goals and keep my priorities in order.”

Reese McCaskill Builds His Own Business Legacy with Customer Service

Reese McCaskill found the perfect fit for his talents and personal goals with JAN-PRO of Detroit.  As a first time business owner in the new Jan-Pro Detroit office, Reese saw the benefit of being one of the first franchise owners in this market. He immediately felt a strong connection to the franchise model and to both Bryan Lubaway and Jared Rothberger, the Master owners of Detroit who share his passion for customer service and communication as key success factors for growth.

Having over 13 years of experience in the automotive industry, Reese has seen his share of change and felt JAN-PRO Commercial Cleaning would be an ideal business to help him reach his financial goals to ultimately buy the home of his dreams. His father encouraged him to pursue his own business and to remember “building a business is not a sprint but a marathon”.

With that in mind Reese began looking for the team members who would be responsible for providing superior cleaning services to his customers.  He realized the startup would require all his managerial skills to recruit the best folks. Reese feels it’s definitely a perk as a business owner to help others. He says, “It’s quite honesty one of the best parts of owning his own business. Also, it’s a huge benefit to leave a legacy to his three children. He looks forward to seeing his business continue on with the support of his family.

“Being your own boss makes you feel more secure,” adds Reese. “You run the show and don’t have to worry about a poor economy or having your income go down.” In July 2015 Reese started with one of the smallest plans of an FP5 he has grown his business to and FP 35 in 3 short months. His next goal is to double that revenue in the next year.

With his passion and commitment to his business, superior customer service, a strong foundation of training his staff and the support he gets from Bryan and Jared, Reese knows he will succeed with JAN-PRO.

JAN-PRO Franchise Owners Inspire Gratitude and Thanksgiving

JAN-PRO has helped Maria Teixeira build a family business over the past six years. Maria explains, “JAN-PRO takes care of everything, making my job easier.” The support Maria gets from JAN-PRO allows her to focus on keeping her customers happy so she doesn’t have to worry about finding new customers or tedious accounting work. Maria, along with her husband and granddaughter, can be business owners without the stress and hassle of going at it alone.

The JAN-PRO operations team is always willing to assist with customer communications. Maria explains, “They know that I do everything I can to make my customers happy, and they are very appreciative of that.”

“I love being able to run my business and keep my customers happy. It’s a big relief not having to worry about collecting invoices and frequent communications with the customers,” Maria says. The flexibility allows her to do little things for her customers like leave a personal note about who will be taking care of their cleaning service while she is out on vacation. Her attitude is the little things go a long way to impress customers. “It’s what keeps them loyal to your business year after year,” she says.

The Teixeira’s have built their business based on outstanding customer service. They pride themselves on having never received a complaint from any customer. Their work ethic and willingness to go the extra mile has made it possible for them to run three accounts including a hospital, an aviation company, and Cigna Fly Support. With this success, their personal financial outlook has greatly improved compared to before they began working with JAN-PRO.

JAN-PRO recognizes that ultimately it’s the people behind a business that make it successful or not.  They are thankful for the partnerships they have built over the last 20 years with hard-working people like Maria and her family. When you have people who are willing to embrace the leadership, culture, and momentum that JAN-PRO offers franchise owners, the result changes lives.

For as much as the Teixeira’s are thankful to JAN-PRO for the support in building their business over the years, JAN-PRO is thankful to them for the determination and consideration they have put forth to grow a successful business.
