Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Commercial Facility
Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Commercial Facility

As the winter frost melts away and the sun shines brighter, why not give your commercial facility a fresh start? A well-maintained and clean workspace can boost employee morale and create a lasting impression on clients and visitors. A win-win situation. Understandably, it is challenging to start cleaning in a commercial facility when you don’t know where to start, so here is a guide to ensure your commercial facility is sparkling from top to bottom.

Create a Workplace Cleaning Plan

Creating a cleaning plan is essential before starting the cleaning process. Create a detailed plan outlining the areas that need attention, and then divide your facility into common areas, offices, restrooms, exterior spaces, and break rooms. Your first priority should be high-traffic areas and those that are most visible to visitors. This way, you can stay organized and ensure that no area is overlooked during the cleaning process. 

Declutter and Organize

Never underestimate the power of decluttering and organizing. You will be surprised by how much of a difference cleaning can make. Encourage your employees to clear out their workspaces and file away their paperwork in addition to helping them eliminate any items that may be taking up unnecessary space. Another great tip is to invest in reasonable storage solutions. You can help keep things organized and maximize space efficiency by investing in appropriate storage solutions such as cabinets, bins, and shelves.

Deep Clean Floors and Carpets

Commercial facilities have daily foot traffic, and floors and carpets often bear the brunt of it, gathering dirt and dust, mud, and grime, not to mention the bacteria and germs that come with it. Keeping your floors and carpets clean is essential for aesthetic value and for the health and safety of your visitors and employees. Start by vacuuming or sweeping all the floor surfaces to remove any debris. Consider going for a deeper clean by steaming carpets or mopping hard floors with an appropriate commercial-grade cleaner. Don’t forget to pay special attention to corners and under furniture where the dust bunnies live!

Refresh Restrooms

Restrooms often require extra attention during spring cleaning as they are high-traffic areas. So, clean and disinfect all the surfaces, including countertops and mirrors, sinks and toilets, and any other surface you can think of. Always keep your restrooms stocked, so check and restock essential supplies such as hand soap, toilet paper, and paper towels, and refresh air fresheners or diffusers regularly to keep your restrooms smelling fresh.

Dusting and Wiping Down Surfaces

Surfaces such as shelves, desks, electronics, and countertops can accumulate dust quickly. You can effectively remove dust particles using a microfiber cloth or a duster to wipe down surfaces. Commonly overlooked areas such as ceiling fans, light fixtures and air vents need extra attention. Disinfect or sanitize frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, cabinet handles, door knobs, light switches, and any other area that you can think of to prevent the spread of germs and diseases.

Clean Windows and Mirrors

Clean windows and mirrors do a fantastic job of brightening any space. They make for more natural light in your space when free from the obstruction of streaks, handprints, and dust. You can use a mixture of vinegar and water or a streak-free glass cleanser to clean windows inside and out. Wipe down your mirrors similarly for a crystal-clear finish. Don’t forget window sills and frames, which can collect dust and dirt over time. 

Maintain Exterior Spaces

Now that we’re done with the interior of your commercial facility let’s focus on the exterior because it is just as important as making a good impression. Ensure that your walkways, parking lots, and entryways are swept regularly to remove debris and trim any bushes or plants that may have been overgrown during the winter months.
