Looking Ahead: 3 Spring Cleaning Tips for Commercial Facilities

open windowIt’s always nice to look ahead when you’re in the middle of winter. Spring is just around the corner and even though we still have a few weeks of potentially harsh winter weather to get through in the Greater Toronto Area, homeowners, apartment dwellers, and commercial facility owners are all looking towards spring.

That’s because spring means a lot less attention has to be paid to chasing down water stains, getting the floors cleaned of all of the road salt and sand that gets tracked in, and making sure everyone that walks across the facility is safe.

With more time on the maintenance department’s hands, they can focus on some important spring cleaning tips. Here are a few to keep in mind.

Spring Cleaning Tip #1: Evaluate those bathrooms.

The bathrooms may be clean, but are they as clean as possible? If the maintenance personnel has been more focused on cleaning the commercial floor surfaces and keeping them dry and safe, they may only have been doing rudimentary cleaning in the bathroom.

Spring is a great time to bleach the walls, clean out any mold and mildew from the grout, and make any repairs necessary to the tiles.

Spring Cleaning Tip #2: Thoroughly strip, wax, and polish the floors.

When the weather is nice, now is the time to use the best quality commercial floor cleaning equipment to thoroughly strip, wax, polish, and buff those floor surfaces.

During this particular spring cleaning, the maintenance personnel should note any particular problems with the linoleum or ceramic tile surfaces so they can repair them quickly.

Spring Cleaning Tip #3: Open those windows.

Even though the temperature may not be considered warm yet, when it turns warm enough, open the windows and doors and allow some fresh air to blow through. You may need to turn the heat on to keep the entire facility comfortable for everyone who uses it, but when you do this for just one day early in the spring, you’re going to notice the difference in the freshness of the air itself.
