Commercial Services

ServiceMaster Clean Commercial Services provides carpet and upholstery cleaning for commercial properties.

For those ambitious people that are comfortable in a B2B environment, our Commercial Services model is built around the delivery of carpet, upholstery and hard floor cleaning and maintenance programmes – aimed at businesses and organisations.  Franchisees seek out commercial contracts for regular maintenance cleans in addition to one off work.

Ongoing maintenance programmes provide regular income from those clients that value the appearance of the premises, creating a welcoming environment for their customers and a great workspace for their employees. Typical clients include restaurants, hotels, car showrooms, and typically any commercial building with hard floors, carpets or upholstery!

Typically, the average job commands a higher ticket price, and the work would be carried out at times that minimise disruption on that site.

Your enthusiasm and positive communications skills are the starting pointing for growing a multi-van Commercial Services franchise. Our established brand, proven business model and unrivalled support can facilitate this.

If you’re able to build strong and lasting relationships with your commercial clients as well as providing a professional service, then you’ll be able to grow a strong ServiceMaster Clean Commercial Services franchise with a view to employ further technicians to support you.
