Just because temperatures drop and things feel less dirty, it doesn’t mean that public or business spaces don’t require continued care and attention. It’s true that during winter there is less dust in the air, but there is also more moisture and rainfall which will leave windows and floors more affected. As any property owner and cleaner knows, the devil’s in the details – and he doesn’t hibernate, unfortunately. In this article, we look at why winter cleaning is so important.
A professional office cleaning service can be tailored to meet your requirements and respond to weather-related incidents, increasing the level of attention required at such times.
That most challenging time of the year
In fact, winter presents all kinds of challenges and potential slips and (pit)falls, which is why outsourcing a professional service is your best option to cut down on this potential for accidents and still retain good results. Whether it’s simply a matter of approaching a designated area using well-worn safety procedures, wearing proper protection or using the most suitable product, the results will be self-evident. Comments regarding smears or streaks will not present themselves from visitors and apologies will not have to be made to clients.
Windows in particular (where glass contracts with the cold), will benefit from remaining clean and clear, allowing much-needed light to brighten employee moods and in turn, maintain general positivism and productivity in the workplace. This could mean less reliance on artificial lighting, to help reduce bills. Also, there is much more salt and grime accumulating over winter, which can cause damage over time. It’s definitely well worth having the right people available and to respond quickly.
These will begin to present themselves in all manner of scenarios, from the obvious and unexpected to the very subtle and unimaginable. Paying attention to details that nurture staff experience could mean that just a careful positioning of a floor sign prevents a major accident. Alternatively, if there are difficult, inaccessible or high-level internal or external areas that need deep or regular cleaning, it’s vital to have fully-trained, dedicated cleaning staff who can work safely and spot and report potential hazards. This can end up protecting everyone on-site consistently throughout the winter period.
