Office cleaning sounds like such an easy job. You see a bit of dust here, so you swipe it off the desk with a damp cloth, vacuum the carpets from time to time, and that’s about it. Anyone can do it.
In fact, why not take someone away from their regular job and have them clean the toilet? That sounds like a perfect way to boost employee morale!
It’s not of course. And without walking into your office, I can already point to at least 3 mistakes you are making when cleaning that a professional office cleaning service Toronto wouldn’t.
Imagine having a conversation with an important potential client, when one of your employees walks into the office and starts vacuuming the carpet. That would be odd and not very pleasant.
Okay, that’s a bit of a harsh example, but it perfectly showcases the problem here. Cleaning can distract your employees from their regular job and lower their productivity. This is why it’s best if it’s done in the off-hours when no one is around.
This is how you may have used to clean your bedroom when your mother made you (typically just dumping everything in the closet), but not how you clean a place of business. Just because it “looks” clean and you can’t see any more dirt, doesn’t mean there isn’t any.
More importantly, doesn’t mean there aren’t any germs, bacteria, viruses and other “pleasant” and infection-causing microorganisms floating around and ready to strike. Without properly sanitizing the place, you’ll never get rid of these.
Every job requires certain tools in order to be completed successfully. Office cleaning is no different. If you want a clean office, the minimum that you’ll need in terms of tools is a vacuum cleaner, a mop, and a broom. But there’s much more to it. Do you also have cleaning gloves, different clothes for different surfaces, a longer broom to reach higher places and so on? There are a lot more cleaning tools that you’ll need if you want to get the job done right.
Even if you get things more or less right with the tools, you’ll probably fail when it comes to the cleaning products you should use. For instance, using abrasive cleaning products can visibly damage delicate surfaces. Likewise, if you see a stain on your office carpet, using the same stain remover as on the upholstery can yield some unwanted results.
These were just a couple of mistakes most people make when cleaning their office space. Luckily for you, a professional office cleaning service Toronto won’t
