The commercial cleaning franchise industry encompasses businesses that provide cleaning, sanitation, and other janitorial services for commercial establishments. This includes, but is not limited to cleaning floors and windows, floor maintenance, and in some cases, damage restoration. Overall, businesses in this industry have few barriers to entry and are relatively low investment. 90% of commercial contract cleaners service office buildings, and while many office buildings are closed because of COVID-19, because these contracts last for multiple years on end, they are not likely to be impacted by the pandemic. This industry excludes businesses that provide cleaning services for private residences. Finally, commercial cleaning makes up a significant portion of the overall cleaning and maintenance industries.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a mixed effect on the industry — while some operations had clientele that remained closed throughout the pandemic, other operations saw an increase in revenue as their clients frantically ordered extreme and frequent cleaning. These differences in clientele have led to significant disparities between the success of various sub industries within the cleaning and maintenance industries.

Since commercial cleaning franchises primarily services office buildings, the industry has taken a sharp hit due to the pandemic as most office buildings remain closed. While large and established franchise modeled companies have been able to survive, many mid-size and smaller businesses have been forced to close. Nevertheless, as the end of the pandemic comes closer into foresight, commercial cleaning businesses are expected to make a comeback, even if they are reimagined. The disappearance of communal and leased office space, which was accelerated by the pandemic as more people adjusted to working remotely, will likely force commercial cleaning businesses to adapt quickly to this change.
