Commercial buildings, including offices, warehouses, and specialty buildings, such as hospitals and factories, need cleaning on a regular basis. Most commercial establishments use a professional cleaning service daily to handle everyday cleaning such as surface disinfecting, vacuuming, wiping down cabinets, cleaning restrooms and breakrooms, and waiting areas, emptying trash containers, and in specialty offices such as medical or dental sanitizing equipment and surfaces used to care for patients. But, just as in a home, there will come a time when daily surface cleaning is not enough, and thorough deep cleaning will be needed. Most commercial cleaning services will offer this service at an additional cost as it takes time and cleaning products not needed for the daily cleaning.
Depending on the use of the building in terms of how many people come and go each day, the type of business, and the building’s location will factor into how often a deep cleaning is needed. Additionally, such health alerts as COVID l9 will require a more frequent deep cleaning. As a deep cleaning is different from the daily cleaning, what should be the expectations? (The following list is somewhat generic as specialized offices and buildings may require additional services under the heading of deep cleaning.)
Bathrooms are key areas of concern when deep cleaning as behind fixtures and under sinks are areas that collect dust and bacteria. A deep clean will mean carefully wiping these areas with a disinfectant cleaner. Such items as soap dispensers, paper towel holders, blow dryers, and toilet paper holders will need to be thoroughly cleaned as well.
Breakrooms are another area prone to collecting dust and bacteria as well as the build-up of food particles on chair rungs, in corners, and in appliances such as microwaves, fridges, and coffee makers. Under sinks, in cabinets, and all tables and chairs (legs and rungs included) need to be thoroughly sanitized. Floors need a special check to be sure food particles are not hiding in corners.
Floors and carpets All areas need a good vacuuming with a commercial strength vacuum. Floors should be cleaned according to their material, and this may be the time to strip and rewax as well.
Wastebaskets, trash cans, and any waste containers should be washed with a disinfectant, making sure no debris is stuck to the inside.
Blinds, windowsills, and baseboards need to be wiped with a disinfectant cleaner safe for the surface to be cleaned. If there are curtains or drapes, they need to be taken down and washed or dry cleaned.
Vents, tops of doors, ledges, and ceiling fans need wiping with a damp, disinfectant cloth. If there is a lot of dust build-up, these areas can be vacuumed before being wiped down.
Such small details as doorknobs, door handles, light switches, light fixtures, and coat racks and hooks should be wiped clean with a disinfectant cleaner.
Electronic devices, including monitors, keyboards, and the desks they sit on, need a disinfectant wipe down. However, be sure the cleaning company knows the proper way to clean screen surfaces without damaging them.
Waiting areas for clients, customers, and patients need special attention in a deep clean. All furniture, including chairs, tables, and magazine holders, need to be thoroughly wiped with a disinfectant. Floors, rugs, and carpets need thorough vacuuming and cleaning when appropriate. All the small detail cleaning should be done as well.
Disinfectant spray should be sprayed in all areas when the deep cleaning is finished and left to penetrate all surfaces.
