9 Tips on Commercial Cleaning to Keep Your Office Neat & Dust Free
Wednesday, January 27, 2021

Frequently offices want to focus more on staff productivity and not the cleaning process. Cleanliness can then get overlooked because the staff runs out of time to do the cleaning, which is outside of their normal duties. But a clean office shows clients and potential clients that the staff cares about the company and the work environment, and keeps everyone who enters the space healthier.

Having an office cleaned by a professional commercial cleaning company ensures that the cleaning happens, is completed on a regular schedule, and uses the proper techniques and cleaning agents to ensure disinfection and a safe environment.

In between commercial cleanings, use the following tips to keep your office clean and orderly:

1. Organization is Key

An office can start to look like a cluttered mess if there are files and papers everywhere. The first things that any office should have are file folders and drawers to avoid this clutter. Desk trays are very helpful too, along with wall pockets. The staff will be able to stay organized when they have the basic office needs to get the paper out of the way! A clean desk is a productive desk and this will help the staff put their most important documents where they know they are.

2. Creating a Checklist

It is important to make a list of what needs to be cleaned for when the commercial cleaning company arrives. Offices often have some very specific needs. The checklist should include the reception desk, the shared kitchen and bathrooms, the meeting rooms, desks, and workspaces.

3. Get the Carpet Cleaned

Carpets and rugs can hold a lot of germs and dirt. Dust hides there too and can make the staff in the office incredibly sick if they are not being cleaned properly. It is great to have the carpets vacuumed every day, but does that really get all of the dirt out? A good steam cleaning every week should help to get the carpets and rugs as clean as possible.

4. Make sure Non-Toxic Products are Used

There are a lot of people working in an office and they all have different allergies to scents and fragrances, chemicals, and foods. This is important to know when it comes to getting the office commercially cleaned. Most companies now have a non-toxic line of cleaners that they use in offices. These products are biodegradable and most of them are made with all-natural ingredients that won’t cause illnesses later down the line.

5. Using Up-To-Date Equipment

Cleaning a bathroom with a rotten mop is not the best way to make the office shine or smell good. This is why it is key that you hire a commercial cleaning company with the best and most up-to-date equipment.

6. Have Staff Keep Their Desks Clean

It doesn’t seem like too much to ask of your staff to keep their own workspaces clean. There are simple ways to dust off the screens, keyboards, and desks. It should be part of the staff’s daily duties to keep their areas clean. A simple dust cloth can clean their desks in no time at all. Reassure them that it is to keep them healthier and to keep their work environment clean and organized.7. Use A Neutral Cleaner for the FloorsThe floors of an office are just as important to keep clean as the desks. If the office doesn’t have carpet, polishing the floors not only makes them look better and last longer, it also helps maintain a more germ-free environment.8.. Mats At All EntriesThere is nothing worse than having mud all over the floors of a clean office. It is not attractive for staff or for clients. Placing mats at all outside entrances helps get the dirt and grime off of shoes before it gets tracked onto clean interior floors.Having a clean office is vital for a successful one.Get in touch with Green Mountain Group for a commercial cleaning quote -- whether it be a one-time deep clean or a regular nightly janitorial service:
