How to Effectively Transition from an In-house Team to a Commercial Cleaning Service

Think of running a facility as being like the conductor of an orchestra. There are many parts to manage, and when they all work together, the result is harmony. 

One often overlooked part of this harmony is cleanliness. It’s like the quiet background rhythm that, when missing or offbeat, can throw off the whole performance.

So, who’s keeping the rhythm? 

For many businesses, it’s been an in-house cleaning team. 

But today, many facility managers are changing their tune, looking to outsource their cleaning to commercial cleaning services like us, at 1 Stone Solutions.

We offer benefits like top-notch cleaning quality, cost savings, and the flexibility to handle any cleaning challenge. Plus, we can take this task off your plate, letting you focus on conducting the rest of your business operations.

But, transitioning from in-house cleaning to our commercial service can be a new song to learn. It can bring challenges and questions.

In this blog post, we’ll break down those challenges and provide practical solutions to help make the transition smooth, based on our expertise and experience at 1 Stone Solutions.

Ready to change your tune? Let’s get started.

Balancing Cost and Quality

Every facility manager knows the struggle: you need to keep your facility clean, but you also need to keep costs down.

It’s a classic tug-of-war, and sometimes it feels like you’re losing on both ends. But what if we told you that you don’t have to compromise?

At 1 Stone Solutions, we know how to balance cost and quality.

We are masters at sourcing affordable, high-quality cleaning supplies, and our staff are trained in efficient cleaning techniques that save time and money without compromising cleanliness.

What’s more, because cleaning is our core business, we have economies of scale that an in-house team can’t match.

We provide better service at a lower cost because we’re experts in our field. You’ll get a spotless facility, and your budget will thank you too.

Scalability and Flexibility

In the world of facilities management, no two days are the same.

One day, you might be preparing for a big event; the next, you might be dealing with an unexpected mess. These changing needs can stretch an in-house janitorial team thin.

But at 1 Stone Solutions, we thrive in these changing environments.

We have a diverse team and a range of equipment at our disposal.

Whether you need routine cleaning, deep cleaning for a special event, or emergency clean-up, we have the resources to handle it.

This flexibility and scalability ensure that your cleaning needs are met, no matter how they change from day to day.

Leveraging Professional Expertise

Handing over the reins of your cleaning needs to our external team might feel a bit like a leap of faith. After all, you’ve been managing things yourself, and you know your facility inside and out.

But remember, we at 1 Stone Solutions are experts in what we do.

Our professionals are trained in the latest cleaning methods and stay updated on industry standards. We know how to tackle various cleaning challenges, from stubborn stains to maintaining polished surfaces.

More importantly, we understand the significance of our work and how it contributes to your business’s overall success.

By transitioning to our commercial cleaning service, you’re not just outsourcing a task.

You’re gaining a partner who brings their expertise to the table, complementing your understanding of your facility with our knowledge of delivering top-notch cleaning.

Maintaining Clear and Proactive Communication

Staying informed is essential. And in the context of cleaning, you’d want to know when and what cleaning tasks are performed, and whether there are any issues or changes you should know about.

But can an outsourced team like ours provide this level of communication?

We at 1 Stone Solutions understand the importance of proactive communication. As part of our commitment, we provide regular updates on cleaning schedules, tasks performed, and supplies used.

We’re also quick to inform you of any issues that might affect our service or your facility.

You’re not just a client to us; you’re a partner.

And a good partner keeps the lines of communication open. This way, you’re always informed and can focus on what you do best – managing your facility.

Ensuring Reliability

Reliability is key when it comes to cleaning. The last thing you want is to be left high and dry by a no-show or inconsistent cleaning standards.

So, can you depend on a commercial cleaning service like us at 1 Stone Solutions to deliver consistently high-quality service?


Reliability is at our core. We understand the importance of a clean facility to your business operations, and we take our commitment seriously.

Whether it’s showing up on time, every time, or maintaining a consistently high standard of cleanliness, we are a service you can count on.

We also have contingency plans for unforeseen circumstances.

So, even in the face of challenges, you can rest assured your facility will be kept clean.

Access to Better Equipment and Supplies

You might know that commercial cleaning companies like ours often have access to advanced cleaning equipment, but you might be wondering if this really makes a difference.

The answer is a resounding yes.

We at 1 Stone Solutions invest in the latest cleaning technologies and high-quality supplies. We do this because we understand how better tools lead to better cleaning.

From high-powered vacuums to professional-grade cleaning solutions, we’ve got it covered.

Not only does this mean a higher standard of cleanliness for your facility, but it also eliminates the need for you to invest in and maintain these tools and supplies yourself.

Managing Transition Disruptions

Even with everything we’ve mentioned above, transitioning from an in-house team to our outsourced commercial cleaning service at 1 Stone Solutions may feel like a daunting task.

But this is where we can really show our value.
