10 Commercial Cleaning Tips

10 Commercial Cleaning Tips

Hiring a professional commercial cleaning company, such as Office Keepers, is by far the most efficient way to ensure that your commercial properties are maintained to the highest standard, however if you are hiring in house for your cleaning, then below are some commercial cleaning tips you may find useful!

Carpets: One of the main reasons of keeping your office space clean is for your potential clients and visitors. So, walk where they would walk! Walk the same route as your potential client, look around and take note at what could be cleaner.

Desks: Stop cluttering your desk. One of the main items in your office will be the office desk space. If you limit the amount of objects cluttering your desk, it will look a lot cleaner, even if you have just placed everything into drawers.

Keyboards: We can test the cleanliness of your office, while you’re reading this paragraph. Lift your keyboard upside down and shake it around for five seconds. See all those crumbs that have just fallen out? They need to be cleaned up. Clean and sanitize your keyboard at least once/twice a week, or limit the amount of food eaten at your desk, to keep on top of it.

Fridges: The last working day of every month, this should not only be known as pay day, but also the fridge clear out day! Yep, that’s right, whatever food is left in the fridge come that evening, throw it in the bin. Trust me, you don’t want spilt milk lining the bottom of your fridge, if you haven’t got a professional cleaning company to mop it up.

Plants: The office plants. There’s no point owning a pretty office plant if no one is willing to keep on top of the falling leaves. Be sure to pick up any leaves off your floor, water and dust the leaves to keep it looking pretty. Or just buy an artificial plant, and just dust it!

Microwave: This tip will make caked on food much easier to remove. Place a mug of cold water in the microwave and bring to boil. If you have a tablespoon of vinegar to add even better. This will loosen all stubborn marks and food can be removed quickly.

Corners: Out of sight out of mind? This is the philosophy of many office workers, especially if their task that evening is to clean their personal home. Make sure that all furniture is moved away from the walls every so often, and make sure that behind the furniture is properly vacuumed. All sorts of object tend to hide here!

Phones: Make sure you sanitize your office phone regularly; the last thing you want is your entire work force off sick with the same illness. Saliva and germs will accumulate on the phone. As part of our task schedule introduced by Office Keepers all telephones are expected to be sanitized at least once a week.

Dishes: All dishes and cups left in the break room should be washed right away. Make it a rule to have each person wash their own dishes, or fines may result!

Bins: Take out your bins and recycle your waste regularly. The last thing you want is for a visitor to come into your offices and have to try and balance their apple core on the top of your rubbish in your full bins.

The Importance of Green Cleaning

The Importance of Green Cleaning

In recent years we have relied on strong and even caustic solutions to clean our schools and other commercial workspaces in the country. Research proves how dangerous these solutions can be for our air quality, groundwater, our bodies, and other parts of our environment.

These are great reasons to use green cleaning, and why you should adopt it to clean your commercial or educational buildings.

Here we share the top 6 reasons to “Go Green”:

 

Keeps the Building’s Interior Healthy

Since green cleaning products do not contain toxic elements, they scour the surfaces to make them free of unhealthy residues that can cause skin rashes for those with sensitivity. Also, these products do not give off noxious fumes that pollute the indoor air. This preserves the quality of the air throughout the structure and makes the air safe to breathe.

Prevents Allergy and Asthma Attacks in Children and Adults

 

Using gentle green solutions for cleaning reduces allergy and asthma attacks in children and adults. Many people are allergic to the ingredients in traditional cleaners but have no problem with eco-friendly ones.

Protects the Environment from pollution

 

Eco-friendly cleaning solutions protect the environment from pollutants. This is due to the fact that the disposal of the cleaning water does not deposit harmful ingredients into the groundwater, soil or outdoor air.

Green Cleaning Is Efficient

 

You will discover that green cleaning is just as efficient as traditional, toxic cleaning. There are safe, eco-friendly solutions for cleaning hard surfaces, food areas, carpeting and more.

A Cost-Effective Way of Cleaning

 

Another benefit of green cleaning is that it is cost-effective. Today, the eco-friendly products are multi-purpose, which keeps you from buying separate products for each element in your structure or they cost less than their traditional, toxic counterparts.

Lessens Your Exposure to Toxins

 

Remember, you also will reduce your own exposure to toxins by adopting green cleaning methods. Over time, you can develop serious diseases through being in constant contact with certain toxic elements in cleaners and other solutions. Keep your own body healthy while you provide others with a safe environment in which to work, go to school, or for other purposes.
