A good first impression is essential for any business. But how often should you have your office cleaned to keep that shine and sparkle? Understanding the kinds of cleaning services you require can help you organise a schedule that creates a positive impression and a healthy working environment.
Every office benefits from daily cleaning tasks including vacuuming, polishing and emptying bins. Some germs can thrive for days on dirty sinks and WCs so it’s good practice to have communal areas including kitchens and washrooms cleaned daily to meet health and hygiene standards.
The size of your office can also impact the amount of cleaning you require. The general rule of thumb is that the bigger the office, the more regularly it needs cleaning. However, the type of business can also influence the amount and type of cleaning required – a medical practice will need several deep cleans a week unlike a general office space which may only need deep clean weekly.
A deeper clean
A monthly window clean has several benefits. Aesthetically, sparkling windows look attractive and allow natural light into the office. This, in turn, has been shown to encourage productivity and wellbeing in your workforce. Office carpets should also undergo a professional deep clean at least twice a year and more often if they’re light coloured.
Hardwood flooring and tiling will generally be dealt with as part of your daily office cleaning routine. Factor in a six-monthly deep clean for tiles and a yearly deep clean for hardwood flooring to keep them looking their best and to increase their lifespan.
The nature of your business
Different businesses also have different cleaning needs. A dental surgery or GP practice will have stricter hygiene requirements than a general office, and a factory where oil and chemicals are present will have different cleaning needs to a hotel lobby.
