Commercial Spring Cleaning Checklist
Spring has finally sprung and many people are eager to begin spring cleaning! In a commercial setting, this means adding on a good thorough cleaning of high traffic areas and those hard to reach spots that don’t get covered during regular cleanings. Start by determining a plan of attack and the products you will be needing.
Every person that walks through the building in the winter has tracked in various debris. A thorough cleaning of these high traffic areas can revitalize and extend the lifespan of the flooring.
• Deep-clean and spot clean carpets and matting.
• Vacuum away any dust hiding in out of sight places, as well as flooring baseboards and corners.
• Buff and scrub the tile and concrete. (Read our how-to on properly cleaning hard surfaces with a buffer.)
Furniture should be maintained at least twice a year. Dust and dirt can become embedded in your furniture over time, negatively affecting appearance and indoor air quality.
• Deep-clean all upholstery to remove all dirt, stains, and trapped odors.
• Completely wipe down all desks, tables, and shelves.
Hard to reach areas that built up dust such as the tops of light fixtures, ceiling corners, vents, and tops of doors will require a proper dusting. This will help to reduce the number of allergens that can cause irritation.
Inside and outside cleaning of windows is important to let the maximum amount of natural light in, especially low windows that may have come in to contact with the winter elements and snow.
If you live in an area with a snowy winter, you will see sidewalks containing a buildup of salt, sand, and other debris. Pressure washing sidewalks, walkways, and the outside walls of buildings will leave the facility looking fresh and more appealing.
