7 Great Tips for Commercial Spring Cleaning
Winter is slowly fading away, and that means it’s that time of the year when we open our windows and let the fresh air in. It’s also that time to revamp the indoors from top to bottom.
For commercial buildings, the spring season signals many things, but among the most important ones is ensuring that the facility is clean and well-maintained for the warmer months ahead. Deep cleaning initiatives and daily cleaning tasks will go a long way in preparing for a new season of customers and visitors.
Because you probably don’t know where to start with your spring cleaning, here are some tips and tricks that you should consider.
Tips and Tricks for Commercial Spring Cleaning
1. Deep Clean the Carpets and Mats
If there is one item that takes a serious beating during the winter, it is the carpets. Mud, snow, salt, ice, and other debris are brought in with every pair of shoes that step into your building.
A thorough cleaning of our carpets and mats – especially those in high-traffic areas – should be a top priority on our spring cleaning list. This will not only rejuvenate the carpet’s appearance, but will also extend its durability while adding freshness to your facility.
If you fail to address this issue early, the tough stains and debris may turn into costly repairs and replacements.
2. Revitalize Your Floors
The harsh winter weather usually results in excessive wear and tear of your floors. Consequently, they’ll look dull and ugly.
To restore the lost luster and revitalize your floors, you will need professional deep cleaning services. The combination of heat, high-pressure steam, and agitation completely removes the stains and dirt, making your floors look newer than ever before.
3. Clean Your HVAC and Air Filtration Systems
The spring season comes with a lot of allergies. This means that clean and well-maintained HVAC systems are important for the well-being of your employees and customers. Clean air infiltration systems will go a long way in preventing allergens, while increasing the productivity of your work environment.
What’s more, if your building has a history of smoke damage, you’ll need to find a reputable cleaning company to remove the hidden effects of smoke for an improved indoor air quality.
4. Stop Mold and Mildew Growth
After a really wet and damp season, spring is the perfect time to remove mold growth in areas where excess moisture was present. Mold will not only make your building look old and ugly, but can also lead to allergies.
Some of the good places to check for mold include behind and/or above equipment, air filtration and ventilation systems, as well as dark and damp areas, like the basement and warehouse.
5. Get Your Equipment and Machinery Checked
If your business depends on large equipment and machinery, ensure that they are thoroughly inspected as part of your spring cleaning regime. Ensuring that your equipment is free from rust, corrosion, and is well-lubricated is vital for the smooth operations of your facility.
Among the many types of equipment systems, you should ensure you have inspected the boilers, water heaters, mist collectors, vacuum pumps, and coolant concentration tanks.
6. Revamp Your Restrooms
These are probably some of the most visited areas of a business property. The condition of the restrooms will determine how a client or customer perceives the company. So, you will want to maintain your restrooms spotlessly clean.
Despite taking the necessary precautions, bacteria and dirt will still build up over time. This means that the restrooms have to be cleaned and sanitized several times a day.
7. Pressure Wash the Sidewalks and Parking Lot
Your parking lot and sidewalks are the first things that your customers will notice about your business premises. As a business owner, you need to create a good first impression, and cleaning your parking lot and sidewalks is part of it.
A buildup of sand, salt, dirt, and other debris on the pavement will make your facility look less professional and leave a bad impression. Make sure you pressure wash the walkways, parking lot, and exterior walls for a revamped spring image.
