Make 2017 the Year you STOP Cleaning

Make 2017 the Year you STOP Cleaning

Picture this: running a business without worrying about stocking the toilet paper, emptying garbage bags, cleaning the lunchroom counter for the 20th time this week, cleaning or plunging that clogged toilet – again.

Imagine taking the time you or your employees used to spend doing these things (and more) and spending it on work directly related to your business! We are talking more hours time to catch up on emails, file paperwork, reach out to potential new customers, and so on.

2017 is the year you are going to get your time back by hiring QJS as professional Janitorial Service to do the dirty work for you.

Boost Company Morale

When you hire a professional janitorial company like QJS, you know the work is going to get done properly. While most employees don’t mind pitching in to help from time to time, and likely will anyway if something needs to be done between janitorial visits, having to clean toilets at work on a daily basis probably isn’t a job they expected when they took the job in the first place. Let them focus on what you hired them to do, and our crews will focus on what we are hired to do.

Save Money

It might be hard to believe you could actually save money by paying for janitorial services, but time is money, right? So how many hours a week are you or your employees spending maintaining and cleaning while at work, on the clock? When you hired those people, you likely expected them to be working during those hours but every hour they are cleaning instead is a loss of possible revenue! Plus, you’re paying them not only their salary, but also their benefits, retirement accounts, paid holidays, and so on. When you hire a professional janitorial service, you pay a flat rate and let us worry about the rest. Another cash savings? You can stop buying the Supplies and Solutions,  QJS can get all these things at a lower cost than you can from a local home improvement or hardware store. Plus, we use all environmentally-safe products, meaning there won’t be harsh chemicals used on your surfaces, or spread in the air in your office.


This is a contracted service. We don’t call in sick, or miss an appointment. We are committed to high-quality work, and have highly satisfied customers to prove it. When you handle janitorial needs in house, things may get laxed during the holidays or when someone is out sick or on vacation. By hiring a professional janitorial service, you know the work is going to get done – and going to get done correctly. You also know it can be done quietly and discretely, often after hours or on weekends, when you, your employees, and your customers won’t be disturbed.

5 Tips for Routine Carpet Care

5 Tips for Routine Carpet Care


professional carpet cleaning oshawa Caring for your residential carpet can seem like tedious work, especially if you have children or pets (or when clumsy Uncle Jim comes for a visit).  We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but regular vacuuming just is not enough to keep your carpet in pristine condition and prolong its lifespan. QJS offers a Perfect 10 Premium Carpet Cleaning Service that keeps your carpets clean longer and provides longevity to your investment.

 Here are five ways to keep that plush carpet looking and feeling great:


  1. Take care of spills immediately. If someone spills something on your carpet, blot it immediately to keep it from soaking in too deep. The key word in that last sentence is blot. The second you start rubbing a spot, it will start to soak into the carpet and spread, and that’s exactly what you don’t want. If you act quickly, you should be able to soak up a lot of the liquid before it sets in. If you have a spot treatment, go ahead and use it as long as you’re sure it won’t damage your carpet (It’s wise to test it in a small, hidden area first to be sure). Once you’ve applied the stain remover, continue to dab – starting from the outside and working your way in. Clean and rinse the area with a wet rag several times, then set a towel over the area with something heavy on top to soak up any remaining moisture.


  1. Clean your area rugs. Check the care instructions on all your rugs and don’t forget them during your spring and fall cleaning sessions, and more often when necessary. It’s important to follow the specific cleaning instructions on each to avoid damage and fading. However, just like your regular carpet, these area rugs certainly trap a lot of dirt and debris and should be cleaned regularly.


  1. Vacuum often! The norm is to vacuum once per week. However if you have pets or allergy sufferers in your home, it would be a good idea to increase that to a few times a week as part of your cleaning routine. It’s also a good idea to clean high-traffic areas often to help lengthen the life of your carpet, and suck up as much dirt as possible before it gets set too deep in the carpet. Once that happens, the dirt can actually cause the carpet fibers to start deteriorating.


  1. Slow down! We’re always in such a rush these days, aren’t we?! And who wants to spend a long time cleaning? No one! However, it’s a good idea to slow your roll when you’re vacuuming. Slower passes will mean more dirt gets extracted at a time, and gives the suction time to really reach deep into the fibers.


  1. Professional cleaning! Routine professional carpet cleaning is one of the very best ways to keep your carpet looking newer, longer. QJS has been caring for carpet in homes throughout the Durham area for years, and it’s a job we take seriously! We understand people live on carpet that is why we use eco-friendly cleaning products that are safe for everyone in your home.
