It’s hard enough knowing when to get your house cleaned and that’s your own personal space. It can be even harder to decide when to get your professional space cleaned and that, all in all, is usually a larger and more collective space. Fortunately, all is not lost when the boss or the board or you and your coworkers decide that the office is getting a little too messy. There are many different kinds of professional cleaning service that will be happy to fix up your office or working space and make sure it’s as clean as can be. What follows is a short list of places in an office space that are often difficult to clean because of inaccessibility or general neglect. Follow along and try to remember to give these areas the extra attention they deserve the next time your office is clean. The commercial cleaning company you hire will be glad you did!
- Carpets, Rugs and Floors
A professional cleaning service will often start with the floors of an office and for good reason. The floor is often the most neglected part of the office, whether it be tile, carpet or some other substance. For tile, it’s relatively easy to mop and scrub, even fix the grout if necessary. But the same can not be said if the floor of your professional space is carpet. If the floor is fabric in any way, the cleaning gets much more complicated. A business cleaning service will often have to bring in more expensive equipment to deep clean the rug and it can take a while. It can also be quite a bit more expensive as well if additional chemicals need to get involved. To avoid this, do your best to not spill food on the floor if you eat in the office. Better yet, try to avoid eating in the workspace at all if necessary. As hours increase and the amount of work builds up, many offices have begun to let people do this but for the sake of your basic office cleaning services, try to avoid if it all possible. Sauce or crumbs can really soak and burrow into the carpet and become extremely hard to remove the older and more ingrained they become. Keep your carpets clean and those cleaning bills low! That’s what matters.
Walls and Vertical Surfaces
Not every office requires this, of course, but some do and it can be difficult when it needs to be done. You might not think that the walls would be an area that needs frequent cleaning but dirt and grime can build up behind running boards or near ceiling vents just as much as it can build up in other places. Being so high up or down low, these spots are also difficult for a commercial cleaning business to reach and they often require special tools to ensure that they are cleaned properly. Avoid the hassle and extra equipment that this requires and be sure to check vents and lower wall sections once or twice a year yourself. Many offices have eliminated smoking indoors but even outdoor smoke can leak in and stain the walls in hidden or out of the way corners. Specific kinds of offices have specific types of walls and activities within them as well. A computer office is not the same as a factory office. Do your part to make sure all hidden parts of your office are clean.
It might sound odd to have a professional cleaning service in your desk but, occasionally, this can be required for a full clean. You don’t need to worry about this though. They are a professional cleaning service for a reason. They won’t interfere with your work or your personal items. Just clean the drawers and top surfaces. Do your part to help and clean off anything unnecessary on your desk. Papers, documents, tools, staplers, everything must go. By offering them a free surface, you ensure that the cleaning is done in a fast and timely manner. This is best for everyone.
