Office Deep Cleaning Services: What You Should Expect
June 18, 2020 | AUTHOR: Tammy Wright
Take advantage of the office being empty or half-full and have professional commercial cleaners deep-clean your office. A clean office helps create a healthy working environment and contribute to the overall appearance and maintenance of the facility. Generally, you plan an office deep cleaning during the holidays or midsummer, when many employees are out. But this spring’s unplanned shutdown presents an opportunity to have the office cleaned and sanitized when employees return to work.
What does a deep clean involve?
A typical office deep cleaning checklist includes services such as cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces in restrooms, kitchens and high-touch areas like doorknobs, light switches, phones, keyboards and mice. Cleaners also vacuum and spot-clean carpets; mop floors; clean trash cans and lids, glass doors, mirrors and interior windows; and dust desks, cabinets, counters, window sills, furniture, base boards, overhead vents and mini blinds. Depending on the office and foot traffic, you may also want to have the grout cleaned or schedule a deep-extraction cleaning for the carpet at this time.
Ideally, you should repeat some of these services weekly during your routine janitorial service, while others once or twice per year.
Should we clean our office weekly?
Bathrooms should be cleaned and sanitized daily. Mirrors should be cleaned, toilet bowls should be scrubbed, paper products should be restocked, floors should be sanitized and handles and all surfaces should be wiped down. Computer areas, desks, kitchen counters and other surface areas should be wiped down.
Why is an office deep cleaning important?
Routine cleaning such as refilling soap dispensers and vacuuming keep up an office’s appearance. But an office deep cleaning focuses on removing dirt and germs you may not see. A commercial cleaning schedule helps you to maintain a healthy workplace by removing harmful microorganisms that can lead to sickness. And, routine disinfection helps to reduce the risk of COVID-19, flu and other respiratory illnesses.
Sanitization and disinfection have always been critical to a businesses performance. What COVID-19 has done is raise the importance of regular disinfection. Essentially, it has brought commercial cleaning companies to the front lines of battling outbreaks at the office. More than ever, your employees are going to appreciate feeling safe in their workplace.
Why should you hire a professional cleaning company?
High-quality commercial cleaning companies train their cleaning crews in the proper usage of equipment and chemical cleaning products formulated to sanitize workplaces and reduce the risk of dangerous viruses, microbes and germs. Professional cleaners like Office Pride follow all guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved chemicals and follow the instructed dwell times for each product. Dwell time is the time that a disinfectant must sit on a surface to kill germs. This is a critical part of disinfecting.
Office Pride also uses color-coded and/or disposable cloths for certain types of cleaning to avoid cross-contamination between restrooms and other office areas.
Additionally, many professional cleaning companies have invested in new technology such as electrostatic sprayers and misters, which can enhance disinfection of a facility by getting around corners and into cracks and crevices that manual cleaning methods cannot reach.
