Spring cleaning time is here and it’s not just for homeowners and individuals. While often associated with homes, spring cleaning is actually just as important, if not more important, in commercial settings. Effective spring cleaning helps to keep areas sanitized, ensures that all areas look bright and fresh, and helps to maintain furnishings and fixtures.
To help make sure your business gets the most out of this year’s cleaning, here are 5 Commercial Property Spring Cleaning Tips.
Sanitize All Common Areas
Cleaning and sanitizing public areas has been a central focus over the last two years, but that doesn’t mean you can overlook it as part of your annual deep-cleaning routine. As you prepare to spring clean your commercial property, start by identifying all areas that can be sanitized, both those with high traffic and those with low traffic. This includes lobbies, bathrooms, elevator buttons, switches, and handrails. Create a list and ensure that all common areas are thoroughly sanitized with a high-quality cleaning product.
Deep Clean Carpets
Thoroughly cleaning floors is a big part of spring cleaning. Winter months bring lots of dirt, debris, and moisture indoors. This is hard on all flooring, but it’s particularly harsh on carpets, where moisture and dirt tend to build up. As a result, it’s important to deep clean and shampoo all carpets. This will get rid of mud, stains, and moisture. The result is that your carpets will look fresh and will be clear of stains and allergens.
Pressure Wash Outdoor Areas
Over the winter, grime and dirt will build up in outdoor areas. This can result in spaces looking poorly maintained and it can increase the risk of slippery areas where people can fall. Get rid of this buildup by pressure washing all outdoor areas. This is particularly ideal for sidewalks, entrances, parking areas, patios, pool decks, and courtyards.
Clean Windows Inside and Out
Cleaning all windows is often a big task in commercial settings. As a result, it’s regularly put off or overlooked. However, every year grime accumulates on windows. This leaves your building looking weathered from the outside and leads to reduced natural light on the inside.
It’s a big project, but cleaning the interior and exterior of all windows will make your property look and feel brighter and cleaner.
Deep Clean Furniture
While you might think to clean flooring and carpets, most people don’t think about adding furniture to their annual spring cleaning list. However, the truth is that moisture and dirt build-up on furniture and leave it looking old and drab. To combat this, all upholstered furniture should be deep cleaned at least once a year. You’ll be surprised how clean and vibrant your furniture will look after a good deep clean.
