Office cleaning might sound like a simple job, but it’s not always as easy as it appears to be. There are many ways that mistakes can happen while your office is getting cleaned, and these mistakes can add up in cost if you’re not careful. That’s why, today, we’ll be discussing commercial cleaning mistakes that you’ll want to avoid around your office.
Scrubbing Spilled Stains
Spills are going to happen eventually, and when they do, you’ll be faced with stains. This is only natural, but it’s important that you address spilled stains properly. A mistake that you might make is to try to scrub the spilled stains away. While this might seem like an effective cleaning method, it actually does more harm than it does good.
Whenever you scrub at a stain, the scrubbing tool you use will absorb the color of the stain. Then, you’ll spread that color to other areas, and you’ll actually end up setting the stain instead of getting rid of it. That’s why we recommend blotting the stain with something like a towel or cloth. Doing this in combination with an oxidizer should help you remove the stain instead of spreading it.
Treating Cleaners As If They’re Disinfectants
Cleaners and disinfectants are not one and the same. That means you can’t use them interchangeably when trying to get rid of messes. Be sure to read the labels of whatever products you have before determining if they’re the right ones for the job at hand.
Assuming That a Surface is Already Clean
Viruses and bacteria are microscopic in size. Therefore, even if you can’t see them, that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. That’s why you should always clean and disinfect surfaces after you’re done using them. At the very least, you’ll want to clean and disinfect them daily. If you need extra help with these cleaning tasks, you could consider hiring a commercial cleaning company to assist you.
