We’re more than building services – We’re building relationships

15 Reasons Why You Should Outsource Your Building Services

  1. Hire a building services firm that keeps up with the latest information and technology provided by the industry.  STAR’s team is trained on the latest and greatest programs to ensure your building is safe & efficient.
  2. You won’t have to bear the expense of purchasing new equipment.
  3. No more paying for repairs and maintenance of equipment.
  4. You won’t have to schedule and coordinate the services yourself.  STAR coordinates all the building services, including janitorial, front desk and maintenance services including window cleaning, carpet cleaning, floor waxing, and so forth.
  5. A reduced price can be offered for each of the building services when they are all provided by one contractor.
  6. Not having the responsibility of the time-consuming task of hiring and training new and replacement personnel.
  7. Your vendor assumes responsibility for supervision and inspection of work performed.
  8. Your service provider is responsible for arranging substitute custodial personnel when employees call out sick.
  9. Staff members and the buildings serviced are supplied with state-of-the-art cleaning equipment and safe cleaning chemicals to keep tenants and guests healthy.
  10. Purchase hand towels, tissue, soap and other products used and consumed in restrooms and lunch rooms in large quantities, and offer these to the customer at reduced price.
  11. Your vendor spends time with the janitorial, concierge and maintenance personnel when questions come up and supplies need to be delivered.
  12. Better building security can be maintained when one contractor provides all the building services.  A customer that uses its own in-house service to do the daily custodial, but contracts concierge or maintenance staffing, may find the building security not as tight as it should be.
  13. You vendor pays all wages for both regular hours worked and any overtime hours worked by the cleaning personnel.
  14. The service provider pays FICA and FUTA taxes, state and federal unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, and other taxes and insurance.
  15.  Not having to pay for commercial liability insurance and a fidelity bond.
