1. Commercial Cleaning Is Not Just Dusting And Mopping!

This is a common misconception and it definitely needs a new narrative given that we’re still in the middle of a pandemic. The surface level procedures like picking a mop or a broom to clean the shallow elements like just your floor spaces. A client who potentially walks in through your door finding a cobweb on one of your corners is not going to be very impressed with the other places. 

A proper commercial building cleaning checklist will cover every corner and elements in the commercial building.

2. Diverse Places Need Specific Attention

Things like your windows, carpets, blinds, and furniture need constant attention from time to time. Keeping a track of it is thus necessary. Only by doing these, you’d be able to get your place to the level of cleanliness that you’re looking for.

Having a dedicated individual in place to take care of these will give you a better chance of doing it just right and in the right order of things.

3. Commercial Cleaning Services Are Not The Same As Hiring A Janitor

There’s a vastly significant difference here. A janitor who is under your payroll might not be as competent or experienced as a whole unit of professional experts put together. In addition, a commercial cleaning company will themselves bring all the supplies, equipment, and insurance schemes that you might need but a janitor will only be a liability if you’ve sensitive areas on your premises that need careful coverage. Not to mention the accuracy of maintaining strict timelines and offering complete accountability along the way as they run a business just like you.

4. Rely On International Guidelines

There are a lot of regulatory bodies who give out constant research-based ideas, guidelines, and procedures on cleaning since it is naturally sensitive in nature. They’ve especially been active right from the start of the pandemic to date giving out authoritative disinfection and sanitization protocols that are proven effective. If you’re going for a covid deep cleaning procedure, we’d highly recommend that you hire someone who adheres to all of these regulations from bodies like OSHA, CDC, and SWA.

5. Green Way Is The Best Approach

Ecologically sustainable decision-making is something that you as a business owner should definitely be doing already. Cleaning is no exception. You need to handpick your supplies so as to not fall for knock-offs. At JBN Cleaning we always stick to using products only after checking if they carry a DfE label or if they have an EPA approval.

All these will improve your chances of going about your cleaning routine in the best way possible.

Top Things Definitely A Part Of Your Commercial Cleaning Checklist:

  • Nature of cleaning – daily routine, deep cleaning, or another niche
  • Places to cover – This should include the broader picture of all the rooms you have or the areas that are at your premises that need a cleaning procedure.
  • A list of all the floor areas along with the nature of their finish and the type of supply to be used for cleaning the same.
  • Directions of cleaning sensitive areas. For example, if you are going about your gym cleaning, the prominent thing that you’d have to look for is to prepare a list in prior of all the crucial areas that need disinfection routines as an add-on.
  • Even any smaller items in the itinerary like microfiber cloth, caution boards for wet floor signages should be part of the prepared list of inventories needed for the day before you head out with cleaning.
  • Directions of cleaning supplies if the ones you have are of a specific kind – for example, if you are doing a school cleaning services, you might have to definitely go with cleaning supplies that are completely chemical-free and corrosive content free. And their direction of use would be a little more specific where they’d have to be left at the surface for at least a minimum period before you wash it away.
  • The checklist can also be a comprehensive one if you hand it as printouts to your warehouse cleaning professionals and ask them to use it as a guidebook or even for documentation purposes. This can even have checkboxes or the name of the cleaners who cleaned it last and the date of cleaning.
