Why We Should Celebrate National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day

October 2nd is National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day, which means schools, hospitals, hotels, office buildings, retail, and manufacturing facilities across the country are honoring the people who keep their workplace clean throughout the year. Janitorial services are often the most overlooked as customers and clients don’t see the service performed because it is done after hours (mostly at night), but the benefits these workers provide our community with a sanitary work environment is unprecedented. Below is a list of important reasons why we should celebrate our custodians and janitors across America.

The industry is growing faster than the average. This is due to the constant need for clean working and educational environments. According to reports, the janitorial industry is set to grow by 10 percent from 2016 to 2026. In 2016 alone, the janitorial industry provided over 2 million jobs in America. This means that this field is growing faster than the average, providing more jobs to people who are tasked with keeping our workplaces clean and healthy.

No matter what season we’re in, dirt and germs find their way in our facilities. Believe it or not, research shows that 1,000 students can track in almost 25 pounds of soil in three weeks in school. Guess who is responsible for keeping that soil out of campus? Custodians. Keeping your facility clean is their top priority, so oftentimes, custodians will work extra hours just to finish a job that requires more effort.

Unit Franchisees are business owners first, which means they care about the service they provide their clients. As a Franchisee, they are bringing a level of expertise that isn’t found in other industries. There is added pressure in knowing their business depends on the quality of care they provide their clients which means you’re receiving better results.

Operating behind the scenes can be challenging for many of us, but for janitors and custodians, after hours is where they shine. While many of us are away from our desks, our cleaning professionals are hard at work ensuring our buildings are sanitary and safe. Their job is to deliver outstanding services while running a well-managed operation from facility to facility, whether that’s for a hospital, gym, office, church, automobile plaza, schools or museums. They are the first responders in making our workplace clean.

“Our Unit Franchisees are the best in the business,” says Adam Povlitz, President of Anago Cleaning Systems. “They are highly trained business owners who genuinely care about servicing our clients and the needs of their customers. We should not only celebrate them today, but every day moving forward.”

National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day is a day observed for those in the janitorial/custodian service industry. These workers are often under-appreciated for their hard work as the service is done after hours, but the benefits they bring to our workplace is undeniable. For Anago, Unit Franchisees are most often the most important professionals as they work tirelessly to provide quality service to their clients.  If you are interested in learning more about Anago’s Master and Unit Franchise model, please contact Judy Walker at
