Commercial Cleaning VS Domestic Cleaning

We naturally think that commercial cleaners are more capable than domestic cleaners when it comes to choosing a cleaning business.
Many people wonder whether it is better to engage a commercial cleaning company rather than a residential one to clean their homes.

Let’s take a look at both commercial and domestic cleaning to discover which one is right for you.

What is Commercial Cleaning?

A commercial cleaner is a person or firm that is hired by a business or corporation to clean commercial facilities such as offices, shops, factories, bars, and restaurants and have the skills and cleaning equipment to deal with mess which aren’t generally found in a domestic home.

Commercial cleaning is a broad industry and most commercial cleaners will specialise in cleaning certain types of facilities, This is because the cleaning methods and standards are different depending on the type of facility which needs to be cleaned.
