When looking for parts for your commercial cleaning company, you’ll find you can either go the route of purchasing directly from OEMs or sourcing aftermarket products. Both have their benefits, and there are definitely some key factors you should consider before placing an order.  


Janitized® is a company that has over 40 years of expertise specializing in the air filtration sector, specializing high-quality aftermarket filters. The filters produced are commercial grade, meaning they’re built to handle the demands of commercial cleaning while also improving indoor air quality. Throughout this blog, we’ll discuss the differences between the two and the selection of aftermarket products that Janitized® carries. 

What are Aftermarket Parts? 

Aftermarket parts are manufactured by third-party companies rather than the original manufacturer of the commercial cleaning product. Some people believe that they’re “second-hand” products, but this is not the case.  

Aftermarket parts are actually brand new parts that are made by other companies that work with your commercial equipment the exact same way OEMs would, sometimes the quality and function is actually even better.  

What are OEM Parts? 

OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer parts, and they’re parts for commercial cleaning products that are made by the original manufacturer, rather than a third party. OEM parts will carry a brand name and, with that, often also come a  higher price tag.  

Additionally, OEM parts don’t always have as much of a selection to choose from compared to aftermarket product manufacturers, which might feel limiting for some commercial cleaning companies when looking for the cleaning products or parts that will suit your team and cleaning needs best. However, since they’re from the original manufacturer, a lot of people assume the branded parts will work better with the equipment that they’re using.  

What are the Benefits of Using Aftermarket Products? 

One of the biggest benefits of aftermarket products is their price point. Aftermarket products are often the same or even better quality than OEM parts, this paired with their substantially lower price point, it only makes sense to purchase aftermarket products.  

Not only that, but as mentioned before aftermarket product manufacturers usually offer more of a selection to choose from. For instance, Janitized®  has 15 different ProTeam vacuum bags to choose from.  

Additionally, when you purchase aftermarket commercial cleaning parts they are more likely to be readily available, which means no waiting for backorders.
