The Importance of Deep Cleaning Your Workspace

Offices need not only routine cleaning, but they also need deep rug cleaning every week or after 2-3 weeks, depending on foot traffic, weather, etc. Regular cleaning does the bare minimum while deep cleaning removes stains on carpets, cleans blinds, air ducts, keyboards, copy machines, wood,t tile, ceramic, etc. Thorough cleaning eliminates any of the dirt missed during regular cleaning, especially in the hard-to-reach spots. Deep cleaning does more than just the basic vacuuming, wiping surfaces, and mopping floors.

Don’t underestimate the importance of a clean workplace for you, your employees, and your customers. Here are some of the benefits of deep cleaning:

1 Prevents illness

During this period, the world is battling Covid-19; deep cleaning will play a vital part in protecting your employees and clients from this disease. You can check the CDC website for guidelines on how to clean and disinfect your workplace. Covid has become part of how people do business; thus, you’ll need to take all precautions necessary to prevent and limit the spread. Remember, some employees could be asymptomatic, and others could be symptomatic. Thus, commit to regularly clean and disinfect your workplace. Occasionally, you can have a commercial cleaner handle deep cleaning to ensure that your guests and employees are in a safe workplace.

Also, if your workplace is a medical facility, school, has a kitchen or an area for kids, you’ll need to schedule regular deep cleaning. A medical facility will require daily deep cleaning to prevent the spread of diseases. An area with kids will also require regular cleaning to prevent the same.

2 A clean workplace makes for good business

Employees are happier in a clean workplace as they feel that their boss cares about their well being. Happy employees translate to better productivity and efficiency. These are the people who will promote your services and products to their friends and family. You will want to keep them contented by providing them a clean workplace.

3 Customer impressions 

The first thing customers notice when they walk into your restaurant, lobby, or office is the cleanliness. They’ll notice those rugs you’ve barely cleaned in months, dirty conference room, broken chairs, etc. They might promise to come back but never will simply because your workplace is dirty. You can avoid this by cleaning your office, rugs, lobby, etc. If you can’t, hire a cleaning company to handle the cleaning for you. Also, don’t forget to dust off the coffee tables, lamps, tables, bookshelves, etc. to reduce the buildup of dirt and debris in your workplace, especially in areas accessed by customers.

4 Extend the life of your carpets and rugs

Typically carpets and rugs don’t last long due to the conditions they are subjected to. For example, a carpet in a high traffic area would need regular and deep cleaning to maintain top condition. Also, choose a carpet or rug that’s suitable for the location you want to place it. Your lobby will have more traffic compared to your office; thus, you’ll need a carpet that can handle such traffic without wearing out quickly.

Extend the life of your carpets by cleaning the stains while they’re still fresh. Your carpet will get stains from food, juices, ink, pet stains, etc. and you’ll need to clean them before they dry. Removing fresh stains requires less effort compared to cleaning old, dry stains. In addition, hire a professional carpet cleaning company to deep clean your rugs and carpets. Thorough rug cleaning will remove stubborn dirt, stains, and odors. It also keeps your rugs and carpets looking new for longer.

How often does your workplace require deep cleaning?

As mentioned earlier, the frequency of deep cleaning will depend on certain factors, such as:

1 Number of employees 

How many employees are situated in the same office space? If you have about 3-10 employees, they will bring in the dirt but not as much as 100 or 200 employees. The latter will necessitate regular deep cleaning schedules while the former can survive with deep cleaning once a week.

2 Do you have appointments or walk-in customers?

If your business is done online, and there is little to no contact between employees and customers, you can deep clean every 2-3 weeks. However, if your customers visit your business every day, you’ll need to conduct thorough cleaning once or twice a week. Customers tend to pay attention to the little details such as clean spaces, employees, etc. If your workplace is dirty, they’ll probably take their business elsewhere.

Wrapping up

Clean your workplace regularly, and don’t forget to sanitize and disinfect the surfaces to prevent the spread of germs, bacteria, etc. Deep clean depending on how often your workplace needs it, and ensure that those cleaners understand safety rules.
