Keeping a home clean can seem like a full-time job, especially if there are a lot of people living under that roof. Many men and women both discover a number of tips that help them keep their living space as clean as possible.
Some of those home cleaning tips can actually transfer to commercial spaces, providing maintenance departments and personnel an opportunity to be more effective and efficient with their cleaning schedules.
1. Clean one room at a time. Depending on the facility, it may be more prudent for a maintenance department to focus on one part of the building at any given time. If the facility is not open 24 hours a day, it might make sense to wait until it is completely closed and clear of personnel before cleaning the entire building at once. If any offices, hallways, corridors, or sections of the building have a tendency to close down before official closing time, the maintenance department could start there first.
2. Spring cleaning is a great opportunity to de-clutter. Even commercial facilities can acquire a lot of junk. Storage rooms can become cluttered, making it difficult to find any cleaning supplies or equipment.
Spring is a great time to devote one entire day to cleaning out any storage facilities or rooms. Get rid of any equipment that is never needed, selling it to make back some money, and organize the cleaning supplies for safety of all personnel.
3. Look up, look down, look all around. When many people clean their home, the most common thing they do is vacuum or wash the floors. They don’t often look up and miss cleaning ceiling fans, window trim, and top shelves or the top of cabinets in the kitchen and other rooms.
The same holds true of any commercial facility. Pay attention to what’s overhead and start their whenever cleaning the entire facility.
