Fall Cleaning Checklist for Facility Managers
No matter the company and services you provide, deep cleaning is a crucial part of any maintenance regimen. Dirt and grime can quickly build up, leaving an unsightly and unsafe environment for your employees and customers. While daily cleaning routines can keep main areas tidy and organized, a deeper clean can help to remove set-in debris, germs, and allergens to provide a healthier environment.
To keep your business looking its best this season, use these fall cleaning tips from the experts at ServiceMaster Clean.
Fall Cleaning Tips for Your Company’s Interior
Maintain a high standard of cleanliness throughout your building by adding this fall clean-up checklist to your standard routine:
Deep Clean the Floors
If you have hard-surface flooring, you may need to mop or polish them. If your business has carpets or area rugs, have them professionally cleaned during the fall to help remove stains, dirt, dust and other particles.
Dust Fixtures and Hard-to-Reach Corners
While you dust, don’t forget to reach items above eye-level, including fans, lights and other fixtures that might be ignored during a regular cleaning schedule.
Sanitize All High-Touch Areas
If your company is an office setting, this may include surfaces in the lobby like tables, doorknobs and reception desks. It may also include sanitizing cubicles or other workstations, including computers, keyboards, phones and gathering areas. This step is especially important during cold and flu season.
Deep Clean the Bathrooms
Clean, sanitize, and disinfect as needed all high-touch bathroom areas, including toilets, sinks, soap dispensers and doors.
Have Your Air Ducts Professionally Inspected
If experts find a build-up of pollutants, they can remove them to help improve your company’s air quality, remediate any mold growth, and provide a healthier environment for all team members and customers.
Fall Cleaning Tips for Your Company’s Exterior
Typically, the exterior of your business offers a first impression to clients or customers. With proper maintenance and a regular cleaning routine, you can continue providing them with the best version of your company. Add these fall cleaning tips to your standard cleaning routine to help your facility shine:
Clean Out the Gutters and Drainage Systems
If leaves, debris and other materials get stuck in your company’s gutters, you may experience a blockage that could lead to serious damage later on. To let rain or snowmelt drain correctly, inspect your gutters often. If you notice any blockages or a large accumulation of leaves, safely remove them to reduce the risk of damage.
Pressure Wash the Concrete
If you have stains or set-in grime on your walkways, use a pressure washer to restore them to like-new condition.
Clean the Windows
Cleaning your company’s windows has a variety of benefits. Along with enhancing the building’s appearance, clean windows can bring more natural light into your facility and promote a brighter, healthier environment. To effectively remove traces of hard water, oxidation and built-in dirt, hire professional window cleaners.
