Running your business takes an incredible amount of time and effort. With all the work that goes into your work, it’s easy to forget some of the more menial tasks that also have to be done. Cleaning your office or business is probably not the most important task on your to-do list, but it is also not one that you can let slip. Dirty workplaces are bad customer service, but they are also bad for the health and productivity of your employees. If you want to stay on top of your cleaning, the best thing to do is to set up and stick to a cleaning schedule. Read on to learn more.
How Often Should You Clean
Start by determining how often certain areas need to be cleaned. For instance, the front lobby should probably be swept up each night, but back hallway floors probably only need to be scrubbed and buffed every few months. Likewise some major cleaning tasks are only seasonal.
What Areas Need To Be Cleaned
The basics of cleaning are a good place to start to answer this question: floors, windows, touch points such as phones, door knobs, and appliances, and so on. Dig deeper to figure out your unique cleaning needs.Where do most people work and congregate? What activities cause messes? What is your waste like? If you’re a medical office you may have food waste. An administrative office might generate a lot of paper waste that needs to be shredded. Other business likely generate a mix of trash.
When Should Cleaning Happen
When cleaning happens really depends on your schedule. If your office or place of business is always closed each evening, scheduling professional cleaners to come I over night when the place is empty makes the most sense. If, on the other hand, you need to be there when they clean, or you’re having your staff handle the tasks, you should schedule them for a time when you already have people scheduled but the cleaning won’t interrupt your business.
What Should Be Left To Professionals
It may surprise you how many types of professional cleaning services there are out there. You can hire janitorial services, which is the standard cleaning services that most people think of, or you can hire specialists, like carpet cleaning services, window cleaners, floor cleaners, property maintenance professionals, and recycling experts. If any of these tasks are going to take you a considerable amount of time or a considerable investment in supplies, it it likely worth pricing these services from a professional.
