How Often Your Facility Should Be Cleaned

The number of people who come and go throughout the day matters and effects how dirty a space gets and how quickly.

These days, we still spend a lot of time and energy thinking about how clean (or not clean) a place is when we walk into it, from the stores we shop in to the facilities we work in and visit. Pre-pandemic, these things usually only came to mind when a space was noticeably dirty, but with the rise of COVID, more and more people began to actively think about the contaminants that we can’t immediately see. In light of this, it is time to also reconsider how and how often we clean these spaces so that they are usable, safe, and effective places to work, shop, and live. Read on for several things you should consider when deciding how often you should schedule professional commercial cleaning services for your facility. 


How Shared Is The Space?

The first thing that you need to consider is the degree of shared space you’re looking at. For instance, if there is only one business using the facility and the only people who come inside are a handful of employees, you likely need a very different cleaning schedule than you would for a facility with multiple businesses ranging from a high-volume retail shop (lots of outside visitors) to a call center (very few).  The number of people who come and go throughout the day matters and effects how dirty a space gets and how quickly.

 

What Is The Capacity?

The other primary consideration is the capacity of the space. This will come down to both the physical size of the space and the number of people that it usually holds. The bigger a space is, the more time it takes to clean it, naturally. SO if you have a huge, sprawling facility, it may take several nights to completely clean it (doing one zone each evening). In this case, cleaning the facility weekly makes less  sense than doing this monthly, since you would constantly be cleaning if you had the professionals out every week. Capacity also refers to the number of people typically in the space. If you have a small space but there are many people tracking in dirty every single day, you will need more regular cleaning. 

 

Are There Different Types oF Spaces?

Finally, keep in mind that different types of spaces require different cleaning schedules. An office will not need as regular a deep cleaning as a public bathroom. The different types of spaces in your facility may require that you contract cleaning schedules for just those spaces as well (for instance you have a regular nightly cleaning crew who takes out trash and cleans the bathrooms but a weekly cleaning crew who cleans the windows or a seasonal crew who maintains the landscaping).
