Imagine you are a customer entering your office. Walk around the office, following the same path a client might take, stopping often to study your surroundings. You will find the following areas would be of greatest concern, and these are the ones good commercial cleaners would focus on.
In your reception area, glass and doors should be sparkling clean and fingerprint free always. Commercial cleaners need to pay attention to light switches, door handles, dust paintings, computers, cabinets, decorative items and artificial plants. We even make sure your trash is removed regularly.
Rest rooms need thorough and regular disinfecting. Commercial cleaners need to clean from floor to ceiling, paying special attention to places where people touch: door handles, paper towel and soap dispensers, water faucets, toilets and so forth.
Kitchen & Break Rooms
Kitchens and break rooms also need special attention and disinfection. We focus here on sinks, counters, tables and any appliances which need to be cleaned regularly.
All dishes in the break room should be cleaned immediately after a meal. Also, require employees to put dried dishes away on a specific day of the week so that the dish rack doesn’t become overcrowded.
If you make a mess in the microwave, you have to clean it up immediately. Waiting will only make the problem worse because the food will have dried up.
Office Areas – Any commercial cleaner needs to focus on
Your commercial cleaners need to provide your office areas and workstations with a good dusting, removed all your trash, and disinfect all keyboards and mice. These are all things that a reputable commercial office cleaning company should have as best practices. Other things that we consider are the types of products we use. Effective yet green products, that keep the people who work in or visit your office from being affected by chemical irritants.
Other important points
Clear Desk Policy
Limit the number of items on your desk. The excess clutter makes it difficult to spread out your work. Anything that you don’t use frequently (paper clips, business cards, an extra calendar) should be relegated to another location.
Most office supply and electronics stores offer special wipes made for keyboards. Pick some up and wipe your keyboard and monitor daily, especially if you sometimes eat meals or snack at your desk. Let the keyboard dry before you begin using it again.
Behind your furniture
Remember to clean behind your furniture as well. That strip of dust and dirt behind your desk betrays an otherwise clean and tidy office.
Areas that people eat
Take out the trash frequently and vacuum frequently in areas that people eat. This will help keep the bugs at bay.
Your office phone needs to be cleaned frequently by spraying cleaner onto a wiping cloth.
