Keeping your office cleaned and disinfected is an ongoing process and one which you need to take seriously. In addition to trash cans getting full and the floor getting dirty, you also need to look out for viruses and other microbes that can reside in your office space and affect your employee's health. Here are some recommendations to look at when hiring a professional cleaning service for your office space.
Daily Cleaning Maintenance
One of the most important cleaning tasks you need to take care of inside your office space is cleaning the floors and the restrooms. The floors, whether they are carpeting or tile, will become dirty from foot traffic. They will need regular vacuuming and mopping to keep them cleaned, then carpeting should be cleaned by professional deep cleaning once or twice a year. Steam cleaning is a good option as it will allow the carpeting to dry in time for the next business day when your employees return to work. Look to arrange for regular, if not daily trash removal from each trash can inside the offices and each restroom.
Regular Surface Disinfecting
In addition to cleaning the floors and windows, you will also want to look after disinfecting surfaces. With the recent pandemic of coronavirus, it is especially important to look for a cleaning service that will handle the disinfecting of commonly-touched surfaces within your office space. This includes elevator buttons, door handles, restroom surfaces, light switches, and telephones.
Be sure the cleaning services uses an anti-bacterial cleaner and also an optional UV-C light cleaning technology. UV-C light wands emit the strongest of the UV rays, which destroys the genetic materials that make up viruses. This type of UV-C cleaning of your office should be completed after hours to ensure safety to your employees, because the UV-C light can damage your skin
Break Room Clean-Up
Anytime you have a break room that is utilized by more than a few people, it can quickly get dirty in a hurry. A good professional cleaning service will clean up the sink, microwaves, the countertops, and tables on a daily basis to keep the area clean and free of pests.
A weekly clean-out of the fridge is recommended to clean out old food and any spills or crumbs. Just be sure to post a notice on the outside of the fridge that the fridge will be emptied each week of any leftover foods. Otherwise, food and drinks will become moldy and sour overtime.
