A clean business is a good business. It’s a win-win situation for everybody. Employees are happier and more productive, and your customers are more satisfied. As a result, your business reaps the benefits!
But, are you actually cleaning your space well enough? We have some important tips that will help boost any business’s cleaning needs – no matter the type or size of your facility.
Here are some commercial-grade cleaning tips:
Commercial-grade cleaning is hardly ever as simple as cleaning your home. That is why you can’t have a simple weekly and monthly cleaning schedule. A restaurant, hotel, or any other business space has to follow strict daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly cleaning schedules.
Contact points used daily like floors, counters, sinks, restrooms, doorknobs, and other high-touch items, need regular sanitizing. Restrooms, particularly, need cleaning and disinfection multiple times a day to be on the safer side. Schedule weekly cleaning for items that need deeper cleaning, like floor mats. Restrooms should also get an intense, deep cleansing once a week to make sure mold, mildew, grime, and smells don’t get the chance to form. Large equipment should needs monthly and quarterly deep cleanings, depending on the frequency and intensity of their use.
Keeping a business space clean, especially when you have a limited janitorial capacity, can be overwhelming. Attempting to clean everything in one go yields mediocre results. Dividing your space into smaller sections lets you tackle each area efficiently with fewer missed spaces. The result is not only downright better and cleaner but also longer lasting.
When doing bigger space cleaning (i.e., weekly or monthly deep cleaning), always clean the floors last. No matter what type of facility you run, floors are always last on the list. This way, you don’t have to worry about going over the floors multiple times because you dusted the top shelves last.
Trash bins are some of the most overlooked things on a cleaning list. Trash receptacles need to be regularly disinfected and dried. Even trash receptacles used generally for dry items or paper still require deep cleaning. This stops the growth of mold and prevents your bins from becoming a breeding ground for microbes and/or attracting vermin.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re cleaning a small restaurant, a massive office, or a fast-paced lodging facility. One thing remains true: you need the right cleaning tools to get the best results. One very good example of a high-quality cleaning essential that should be part of your arsenal is microfiber. This cleaning wonder is safe to use on every surface.
Microfiber fabrics are made of very tiny fibers that can pick up microscopic particles, including bacteria and other microbes from even the smallest crevices. Microfiber works just as well when used wet as it does when used to dust surfaces, making it a great fabric for towels and dry and wet mops. This versatile material surely adds an effortless boost to your facility’s cleaning needs!
