While Covid-19 has made many areas more difficult for businesses, ACC can alleviate the open questions when it comes to your janitorial needs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cutting Costs for Sanitation Services and Janitorial Supplies
Does it make a difference to buy supplies in bulk?
As a rule, buying janitorial supplies in bulk is much more cost effective than purchasing smaller quantities, especially if you have a safe storage facility to allow for the storage of chemical cleaners. However, with Covid-19 upon us, it’s important to make sure you’re purchasing the correct supplies in bulk. Some supplies are more important than others right now, so those should be the primary focus for your business.
What are the risks to be aware of with janitorial supplies and services?
The two biggest elements to watch for with Janitorial Supplies and Services are the terms of your contract and fair market pricing. As with every market, sanitation supply prices fluctuate. Staying with the same “trusted” vendor of a long period of time opens your business to overpaying of products over a long period of time. It’s also important to watch for contract expiration. Many auto-renew agreements have percent price increase built in. Staying on top of the market and knowing when your contract will expire can keep your janitorial and sanitation pricing low.
How exactly would ACC reduce janitorial costs?
Our main focus with Janitorial Supplies and Services is to lower your expenses with local, regional, and national vendors based on the specific scope of service requirements for your individual business needs. Our team also takes quality and service into account, as well as contract terms. We look at all angles to ensure you’re getting the best price and service available.
