The Importance of a Deeper Office Cleaning

Office cleanings are necessary and always an ally on how your clientele sees your business. A clean, organized space convey a message of professionalism and care. It creates a sense of confidence to customers. Regular cleanings are very important and so is deep cleaning services.

Deep office cleanings are sometimes overlooked as necessary.  However, they are important, just as regular spring cleanings are to the homes we live in! 

Employees spend much time in their offices and workplaces are shared spaces.  Germs have easy transfer opportunity from space to space and person to person.  Thus, the standard cleaning rotation is important but not always enough to truly keep your office clean.  Do regular house cleanings take the place of spring cleanings? Generally, not.

Deep Cleanings – Top Down!

An office deep cleaning should utilize a top-down cleaning approach.  We here at SD Janitor recommend starting high, work your way down and ending with floor cleaning.  We start with dusting, wiping, and vacuuming light fixtures, ceiling corners & edges, fans, and the like.  Next, mid-level dusting and damp wiping take places such as walls, wall art, signs, sconces, etc. Following, we touch points and horizontal surfaces are cleaned. We sanitize and disinfect all areas (Green options are available too). Thorough damp wiping of desks, tables, hard surface furniture, and the like are performed methodically.  We request having staff remove all personal items from desks and shelves to allow us to do the best cleaning possible.  We can also help washing window blinds, shades, and partition glass as a part of our deep cleaning program.  An extra and vital service we do is to sanitizing high touch point devices such as phones, keyboards and mice.

Kitchens, breakrooms and bathrooms also get a completely deep cleaned utilizing a top down approach.  Here at SD Janitor, we have extensively trained our staff to understand how to avoid cross-contamination and utilize the proper cleaning supplies. Experience, knowledge and the right product/procedure, makes the trifecta of an excellent service.  

Finally, once all high and mid-level cleaning is complete, we will get the floor service going.  We’ll assess the conditions of you floor and take the best course of action to make sure you, your team and your clients are stepping on floors that dignify your business.  Often, carpets will receive a professional cleaning with steam extraction, using a truck-mount machine or other appropriate industry approved methods.

How often is necessary you must be asking yourself? Monthly? Quarterly? Annually?  The answer is as regular as your business calls for. Sure, keep a consistent regular cleaning schedule will help keep this extra service to a minimum, but here are a few key factors that can contribute to how often an office building, office suite, or even small office should be top-down deep cleaned:

  • Foot Traffic:  How many employees work in the office?  How many visitors do you have each day?  Have foot traffic requires a more hands-on approach on cleaning.
  • Type of Business:  Are you a small business office with little to no visitor traffic?  Conversely, are you a large medical office with a heavy rotation of sick patients entering and exiting?  Again, the latter would require a more often deep cleaning schedule.
  • Seasons:  Cold and flu season can spawn the need for additional sanitizing cleans.  Also, winter season with rain and muddy foot traffic can certainly generate the need for and extra, more detail cleaning.

Most offices and business spaces choose to have their offices deep cleaned on a quarterly or possibly semi-annual basis. Some high traffic medical offices might have their buildings deep cleaned on a monthly basis. Someone here at SD Janitor can guide you on your particular scenario and assist you implementing the best cleaning program for your business.
