Every business office is different, but one thing they all have in common is they eventually get dirty. While your employees may be good about keeping their personal space tidy, they likely ignore the common areas. This is especially true in areas that tend to get gross quickly.
If you’re tired of trying unsuccessfully to get your employees to participate in cleaning tasks and sick of doing the cleaning jobs no one else wants to do yourself, a customized office cleaning program may be right for you. This is where a commercial cleaning service comes in. They will assess your needs and put together a tailored program. Here are two big advantages of a customized office cleaning program.
Your Break Room Will Stay Clean
It’s pretty hard to relax on your break if the employee break room is a pigsty. No one wants to heat up their lunch in a microwave that is caked with dried food. No one wants to sit down to eat at a table covered in old newspapers with grease stains and then try to find room for their leftovers among the others crowding the refrigerator.
Unfortunately, no one wants to actually clean anything in the break room either. Too many employees simply don’t care if they slosh their coffee about as they take it out of the microwave. And no one ever seems to know who the mysterious brown paper sacks and foam takeout boxes in the fridge belong to — they just know they’re “not mine.”
When you contract with a cleaning service for a customized office cleaning plan, your employee break room can once again provide a serene respite from the busy workday and be a clean environment in which to take a break. Choose a cleaning service that will:
- Clean the refrigerator out
- Clean the microwave
- Wipe down tables, chairs, and counters
- Wash the coffee cups and assorted utensils
- Clean the sink
- Mop or vacuum the floor
- Take out the trash
Your Bathroom Won’t Be Filthy
Much like the break room, keeping the bathroom(s) clean is a job no one wants to do. Obviously, bathrooms have the potential to be really scary places. Bacteria, viruses, and germs of all kinds inhabit virtually every surface in a bathroom. And while we would all like to think everyone is careful about washing their hands, the hard truth is only five percent of people wash their long enough to kill harmful bacteria.
If you’re a germaphobe, you’ve probably already given serious thought to how germy the faucets must be from dirty hands turning them on and off. What about the toilets? Everyone knows how gross those can be, so it should come as no surprise that none of your employees want the chore.
While it’s impossible to make a bathroom 100 percent germ-free, it is possible to continually try to keep it as disinfected and pleasant as possible. Choose a cleaning service that will:
- Clean and disinfect all sinks, toilets, urinals, fixtures, and touch points
- Shine the mirrors
- Replace liquid soap and hand sanitizer in the dispensers
- Replace paper toweling
- Ensure hand dryer is working
- Empty the trash and sanitary disposal containers
- Sweep, mop, and disinfect the floor
- Stock and order janitorial supplies
- Perform occasional deep-cleaning tasks, such as wiping and disinfecting stall walls, cleaning grout lines, and removing graffiti
