Philosophy

In the sweeping, pressure washing, landscaping, and general property maintenance industries, it has become fashionable for single firms to offer all services from one source.  A San Diego parking lot sweeping contractor, an Irvine commercial window cleaner, a Los Angeles power washer, or a Santa Fe Springs landscaper may advertise as specializing in just one service, but in truth, single-function janitorial, landscaping, and sweeping firms have morphed into comprehensive maintenance contractors by forming alliances with a variety of service professionals. This situation can be a win-win for property managers and maintenance contractors alike: on the one hand, it allows managers to deal with just one source for all of their service needs, and on the other, it allows contractors to inflate their geographic range and service offerings without the need for large facilities, extensive personnel pools, and long travel distances.

Nonetheless, this dynamic also poses a challenge for maintenance contractors: namely, finding and retaining responsible, professional affiliates to fulfill their full array of service offerings. Thankfully, Crown Sweeping has formed and strengthened such alliances over the course of nearly fifty years of business throughout Southern California. How? The answer is simple: by paying its affiliates the dues they deserve.  While the vast majority of general contractors pay their allied firms anywhere from 50% to 70% of gross billing, Crown pays an average of 85% to sub-contractors, and often more. This means that the service professionals on your site are committed, motivated, and well-compensated, and also that the men and women performing the most demanding tasks, like late-night parking lot sweeping and janitorial services or midday landscaping and window washing, are receiving the greatest share of gross revenues. The result is that Crown operates on a very slim profit margin while suppressing costs for property managers and dispatching the greatest service personnel available throughout the Southern California region. By choosing Crown, property owners and managers not only cut costs and receive the highest quality of services--they put money in the pockets of those who truly deserve it.
