Total Building Service, Inc. trains our entire operations team to deliver proactive service. We minimize the need to react to feedback, because we continually anticipate daily challenges and initiate immediate solutions. This approach enhances our partnership with our clients.

Prior to starting a project, we conduct a detailed analysis – an itemized breakdown of each section of the facility. We look at floor coverings, traffic patterns, population and any other special requirement. By utilizing the latest technology that focuses on the target productivity rate, we are able to offer optimal labor output with minimal labor hours. This means more value for our clients.

By keeping a constant eye on quality, we stay abreast of any changes in the needs of a building. By doing so, we can present our clients with new opportunities for implementing higher levels of efficiency.


We place a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction and constantly strive to fulfill our mission every single day. At Total Building Service, providing high quality service consistently is our number one priority.

We view quality not as a set of cut-and-dried standards, but as a journey – a continuous process. Pursuing quality means we must know our customers’ needs, understand their expectations and adjust our strategies to efficiently serve them.


At Total Building Service, our solid staff of conscientious experts is a crucial element in maintaining our very high standards. Through extensive background checks and training programs, we strive to make our associates the most knowledgeable in the industry. By recognizing and rewarding those individuals that contribute to our reputation for excellence, we are able to build a strong, dedicated team with very low turnover.

Our management team brings to the table more than two generations of experience and a good, old-fashioned work ethic. We combine this experience with customized planning strategies to bring our clients the most efficient and consistent janitorial service available.

With an enormous amount of pride, our dedicated team services each building as if it were our own. We aim to not only meet, but to exceed, your expectations.
