Keeping a commercial facility clean can be challenging, especially during winter. However, as spring begins to roll through, there are a number of tips that can make a significant difference in the cleanliness of a facility as well as safety for everyone who steps through those doors.
Here are five spring cleaning tips that any maintenance department or personnel should keep in mind when responsible for commercial facility.
Spring Cleaning Tip #1: Do a walk-through in the morning.
Doing a walk-through of the facility in the morning, before anybody shows up for work or to shop or to use whatever the facility offers is a good way for the maintenance department to get an assessment of what needs to be done that day.
Spring Cleaning Tip #2: Clean from the ceilings down.
Just cleaning the floors isn’t enough; it’s important to make sure the ceilings, walls, and corners are cleaned thoroughly as well. Whether the ceiling is hard wallboard or drop ceiling, when they are dusted and cleaned properly, it will lead to less dirt building up on the floors.
Spring Cleaning Tip #3: Use the right equipment.
It’s essential to have the right equipment on hand to properly clean any facility. During the spring, if extra cleaning tasks are on deck, having the right equipment is important. Don’t cut corners.
Spring Cleaning Tip #4: Have a commercial floor cleaning equipment serviced.
Even if the equipment is serviced regularly, it’s a good idea to have this done in spring as well. This helps to set the stage for a great summer ahead.
Spring Cleaning Tip #5: Inspire your maintenance personnel.
Offer an incentive for your maintenance personnel to pay extra special attention to the commercial floor surfaces and other areas. This can be a gift certificate to a great restaurant, movie tickets, or even an extra day off this summer.
When you pay attention to the cleanliness of your commercial facility, it will improve safety and appearance, making everyone feel much better about relying on the services, products, or space you have to offer.
