Service Keepers is a family owned and operated commercial cleaning company that has maintained many of South Florida’s office buildings, medical facilities, condominiums, religious institutions and schools for more than 50 years.
Our growth and reputation is a result of our unwavering commitment to provide not only the best possible cleaning services using top-quality commercial products and efficient cleaning technologies, but also in delivering dedicated customer service that a client deserves.
Service Keepers is committed to using cutting-edge equipment and technology for its cleaning services, including the use of a hydrogen peroxide-based cleaning system, providing a practical, non-toxic alternative to conventional cleaning systems.
The methods and systems we use account for only part of our success. The other part is our investment in the people who make it all happen; our janitors, site managers, salespeople and management. We offer competitive wages which helps limit turnover and in turn leads to a more experienced staff. We also provide continual employee training.
Our Quality-control supervisors make constant visits to our buildings and interact with clients and staff to ensure all standards are not only met, but exceeded.
