2009 Kaivac Inc. Contract Cleaning Benchmarking Survey Report

September 19, 2010

The fumbling economy has changed nearly every facet of the commercial cleaning industry.

Building service contractors (BSCs) are forced now more than ever to become business savvy and increasingly conscious of their limited resources.

As a result, more and more contractors are diversifying their offerings and breaking into vertical markets.

With these specialty cleaning offerings, BSCs are adding increased value to their services, satisfying the one-stop shopping craze demanded by many building owners and facility managers.

While horror stories of lost business abound in our industry, the majority of contractors are meeting their projected earnings, if not surpassing what was forecasted.

In the following pages, you will be able to compare your operation with that of your industry cohorts in areas such as:

  • Gross sales
  • Cleaning times
  • Types of facilities maintained.
