To me they are one in the same. Janitors perform a variety of cleaning and maintenance duties in a building or office. The phrase "janitorial services" typically means that you work for a janitorial company that provides outsourced services to client companies. Office cleaning is specifically the cleaning of offices while janitorial can be any type of commercial cleaning.

Janitorial services are mostly the regular daily jobs of cleaning. While office/commercial cleaning covers a broader aspect, like a contract based weekly, monthly or annual cleaning of the entire space.

Office cleaning is more specific and easier to make contracts for. Kind of like maid services.

Office cleaning is general vacuuming, dusting & surface cleaning. A bit of window cleaning & a light touch up of bathrooms & floors

Janitorial is usually bathrooms and toilets.

I own a janitorial business and we include ALL of the services mentioned above. We are all inclusive so to speak. One member stated its difficult to make contracts for janitorial but I haven't come across that yet. We offer a daily, weekly, biwkly, monthly & one time cleaning service. It all depends on what the customer needs. We customize a checklist to meet our customers needs as well. We also do other unrelated task such as maintaining the cooler water trays, emptying the refrigerators & cabinets, ice machines, hard floor care & so on. Also, we service office spaces, new & renovated properties, manufacturing facilities, financial institutions & medical clinics to include the production areas within the facilities. I honestly don't know if there's much of a difference aside from these small factors. I advertise all services so anyone looking for a provider can see we offer those services. Some of the older timers may know more but this is how we operate.

The difference between janitorial services and commercial office cleaning is that janitorial services that consist of small, daily cleaning job while commercial cleaning consists of bigger tasks that are done only a few times of the year. For instance, janitorial services and commercial cleaning require carpet vacuuming whereas commercial office cleaning includes deep carpet cleaning. Hiring a janitorial service is beneficial for daily cleaning and maintenance. Companies or offices can look for High Quality Cleaning & Maintenance services for deep cleanings or get your workspace ready for any special event.

Janitorial service is broader -- could include a lot of different types of buildings. Office cleaning is specific to one type of building, but it could include doing exterior, windows, etc. as some other people mention. But there is definitely a lot of overlap between the two.

I personally stopped doing any office cleaning jobs, as it was frustrating to me. I would have just mopped the grubby bathroom floor and some guy went in with his muddy shoes to use the john! This happened so many times. I also had to work "around" office staff. Slowed me down. But that's just me.
When I say "grubby bathroom floors,' you have NO idea of just how grubby they were, not to mention the toilets and sink!

If you are interested in consistent cleaning services that keep your office or facility looking clean and presentable, then you need janitorial services.
