Commercial space is where a lot of foot traffic happens day in and day out. With the pandemic slowly easing out, businesses are embracing the new normal and are rapidly expanding by all possible means. Although people are more conscious about contamination and personal hygiene, business premises should take full-on accountability in keeping every corner of their area uncompromisingly clean. This is the reason why professional cleaning services.
Some places especially are prone to be more susceptible to the accumulation of germs than the rest. These places should be taken much more care than the other areas.
Here’s a list of places where your cleaning services should be on point:
1. Restrooms top the list – No surprise there, right?
Every last corner of your toilets including the sink, urinals, toilet seats, taps, flush handles, and even the sanitizing stations, shampoo dispensers, and toilet soaps are all prone to maximum contamination.
A research finding shows that a typical 16.5-inch toilet bowl could carry a massive total of more than 34,000 units of bacteria in total. According to OSHA, it is advised to have at least one restroom for every 6 to 10 people in a commercial space with separate toilets for men and women.
At JBN Cleaning, we would also recommend you to clean your restrooms at least twice every day with proper sanitization and disinfection routine followed at appropriate time intervals. A commercial cleaning company can do it with clear-cut strategized planning for you.
2. Common shared areas
Your cleaning services should ideally start from the first entry point of your premises. The hallways, receptions, garden areas, elevators, and other shared strata spaces are the ideal places where your clients get the initial picture and form their first impression of you.
Hence, it is not just enough to ensure that the four walls of your business space stay neat but also the areas outside your premise that are in the way of your potential clients.
3. High touchpoints
Touch-prone surfaces like door handles, elevator buttons, staircases, switchboards, tables, and chair handles are all some of the areas that are prone to a higher amount of contamination. Performing a disinfection routine along with your daily cleaning services is ideal if you want to get rid of all the germs that are lurking on top of these surfaces. Ideally, an office kitchen counter is found to have more germs than even a usual toilet seat. Sounds very unpleasant, right?
Another routine would be sanitization where you get rid of the germs upon these surfaces before every use. A deep cleaning procedure is something we would suggest you go for every month, especially with the given pandemic in place.
4. Electronic gadgets
Some of the office equipment that you use every day including your xerox machines, telephones, switchboards, AC remotes, desktops, laptops, mouse, keyboards, etc are all going to be handled by multiple people all through the day resulting in potential contamination and accumulation of harmful bacteria and viruses. They should all be sanitized at regular intervals if you want to retain a safe working ambiance for your employees.
A cleaning company would ideally do this sanitization with microfiber cloths dipped into appropriate solutions. Since we are discussing costly electronics, we would highly recommend you to take all the necessary precautions and even get yourself insured beforehand.
5. Vending machines, water coolers, and refreshment dispensers
In a typical office environment, employees are prone to touch the water cooler at frequent intervals. Keeping reusable cups or bottles will only escalate the situation and spread diseases on the go. The best practice especially in times of a pandemic like this is to ask your employees to bring a bottle that they can fill and use on the premise. The tap handle should be a part of your sanitization routine.
Avoiding spillage around the coffee dispensers is essential since the dampness can be a home to bacteria to colonize and increase exponentially. Clean these areas with white vinegar and water as often as you can.
Mugs that more than one person share is also not as clean as it might seem. This is mostly because of the space they are kept in which might be extremely untidy grounds and they might share a common messy sink before every wash.
Eating packaged foods from vending machines doesn’t solve the problem either. It is known that one in five such machines are likely to spread disease-causing germs. These are not cleaned as much as your food-serving areas, but you should very well treat them the same way when it comes to your office cleaning.
6. Industrial floors and equipment
Scrubbing, degreasing, removing dirt from the interiors of crucial structures on a day-to-day basis will all ensure that the running life of your equipment is prolonged than usual. Since this equipment is sensitively designed, you cannot just like that utilize the first supply you find in your cleaning closet. There are a wide variety of supplies of varying nature that are specially designed to suit different purposes.
A cleaning company like JBN Cleaning would be your best choice when it comes to niche segments like this. They are not just better in terms of the experience they carry or their expertise, but also because they’d cut down your whole operational cost that would be involved in the hiring, maintaining, and investing in the capital cost of supplies & equipment as you onboard an in-house janitorial team.
