Winter Cleaning

Any commercial cleaning company can provide floor cleaning services, but keeping floors in pristine condition year-round is a challenge. Imagine hiring a cleaning company and finding that your floors are damaged after a long winter. Certain floor styles can take a beating in the winter from salt that is brought inside on people’s shoes. A professional cleaning company will provide you with comprehensive services including winter cleaning tips and excellent floor cleaning services for all types of flooring.

Here is everything that a commercial floor cleaning company should be doing to clean your floors this coming winter.

Regular Removal of Salt Inside

Ice melt and salt are essential in the winter for preventing slippery patches outside of your building. However, salt can cause serious damage to your indoor flooring. These chemicals can easily be tracked to the indoor areas of your building, leaving ugly white stains on carpet and scratching up tile floors. Salt ruins floors and using the wrong cleaners can cause sticky residue and dissolve the finish on the floor.

Regularly cleaning salt off your floors will help maintain the beauty of any type of flooring. Regular cleaning teams won’t clean salt. Because of the chemicals, extensive training is required to properly clean salt. Professional janitorial teams will ensure that any salt tracked inside is promptly taken care of so that your floors look great all year long.

Deep Carpet Cleaning

In addition to removing salt from your carpet, frequently cleaning carpets in the winter is crucial so that it looks great year round. While it may seem like the best idea to wait until spring and get rid of all the winter buildup, you still need to clean carpets regularly in the winter. Carpets can get dirty from what people bring in on their shoes, and the longer you let it build up, the harder it will be to clean. Also, when deep cleaning, carpet needs to dry. Carpet actually dries faster in the due to the lower humidity that allows moisture to evaporate quickly.

Increase Overall Cleaning

Last but not least, you should increase overall cleaning in the winter. When it’s cold outside, people are more likely to stay indoors. The following tasks should be performed regularly in your facility:

● Carpet care

● Hard-surface floor cleaning & maintenance

● Reception area/lobby cleaning

● Kitchen, restroom, and break room restocking

● Sweeping

● Dustin and window washing

● Office system cleaning

● Waste removal

● Sanitization programs

Performing tasks more frequently will cut back on the size of messes that get tracked inside.
