Over the last 20 years of commercial office cleaning business, we noticed business migration from many parts of Toronto to suburbs like Brampton Mississauga, and Vaughan, as well as Markham. So why are all the large corporations moving outside the city limits to other municipalities?
There could many reasons for that, but the most obvious reason is money! The city of Mississauga, Brampton, and Vaughan have the most favourable property taxes compared to to the city of Toronto, and since no new roads are being built in Toronto, and the real estate prices are high, the commute can be long and difficult, large manufacturers and distribution businesses choose to move to the suburbs.
Serv-U-Clean Janitorial Services has been migrating too along with our clients to the point where over 80% of our overall cleaning business is based in 3 municipalities; York Region, Peel, and Markham area. This is a drastic change over the last 10 years where the city of Toronto, accounted for nearly 45% of the overall of the office cleaning business for Serv-U-Clean. While today the city of Toronto, only accounts for about 15% of our janitorial business these municipalities are thriving with all types of commercial and industrial companies that require a reliable, trustworthy office cleaning company to service their cleaning needs.
