Take a look around your office. Does it look clean or dirty? Most people try to keep the office as tidy as possible, but the truth is that dust and dirt will quickly pile up, especially in those hard to reach areas.
No matter how often we clean or how reliable the cleaning agents are, areas will get overlooked. Sometimes, we think that space is clean, however germs and bacteria are thriving. High traffic areas need extra cleaning service, especially if you want a healthy office environment. There is no better way to preserve these areas than by using professional cleaning services. Here are just a few areas you might be missing.
1. The Breakroom
The breakroom is always our top cleaning service, and that’s for a reason. Believe it or not, the break room is usually one of the dirtiest places in an office and yet receives the least amount of attention. Sure, most people will probably wipe up some spilled coffee or empty old food, but that does not add up to proper sanitation. With commercial janitor services, you can know that things like coffee pots, kitchenware and more are clean and sterilized.
Air quality is essential to the office space. Air particles, specs of dust, germs, and more go through the office’s central HVAC system. If someone in the office who sits 20 feet away is sick, this could potentially spread it throughout the office. Cleaning and replacing air filters not only prevents the spread of bacteria but also helps your system function more efficiently, increasing the airflow throughout the office.
3. Keyboard and Mouse
Everybody always assumes that the bathroom is the dirtiest places and while that can be true, it’s often the only place that gets regular cleaning. On the other hand, keyboards and mice are used every day, frequently by other people, and can quickly pile up bacteria and germs.
Properly sanitizing them is difficult as you don’t want to damage sensitive electrical equipment. When you hire a professional janitorial service, the team carries the proper equipment and solutions designed to clean your keyboard and mouse properly.
4. Handles and Faucets
We never really think about how many handles and faucets are in the office. Think about it — you have door handles for the entrance, various offices, the bathroom along with faucets and other high traffic areas like the break room. These door handles and faucets get touched by many people throughout the office. They require professional cleaning services no matter how minute the detail might be.
One place that gets frequent cleaning is the floor. From vacuuming to mopping, and everything else in between, the floor is one thing that never gets missed. However, how often do you lie down on the floor and eat? For appearances and safety sakes, it’s vital to have clean floor areas, but what about upholstered seating areas like sofas and chairs? These are the places people sit for their lunch break. Crumbs, bugs, germs and more like to hide in these areas. You need periodic steam cleaning of these places to reduce germ growth and extend the life of these products.
