It does not matter how organized and detailed you are as a business owner. There will always be some tricky areas you may forget to check and clean. Regular commercial cleaning will not be enough if you do not pay attention to these easily overlooked areas. Whenever it is time for your next general cleaning, make sure to read below.
16 Office Areas that Need Commercial Cleaning Attention
Take a look at this checklist for an overall efficient deep commercial cleaning.
· Tops of modular furniture
Tops of office partitions, file drawers, and office shelves may seem like thin surfaces. However, a lot of dust is prone to settle in these areas. Imagine how precious these spaces are if you put company awards, certificates, photos, and other mementos here. Don’t let the dust settle between them.
· Plants and greenery
Dusting plants may seem like an unusual thing to do. Whether real or artificial greenery, dust, and cobwebs hang around the leaves, stems, and flowers. These are meant to decorate your office space and make it look more pleasant. If these plants are not cleaned thoroughly, they may only be a good decoration for the next Halloween.
· Office chairs
Not just because clients and employees sit on office chairs, it will never get dirty. The chair’s base and the castor wheels are likely to have a buildup of debris from the floor. It is more common during the winter months when snow from shoes enters your commercial space.
Though upholstery is made to cover and protect your furniture, that doesn’t mean they are undeserving of care. You will notice the difference in the color of the back and bottom areas from the front. When you do, it is time for some major commercial cleaning.
· Office kitchen
No one looks under the microwave or behind the refrigerator, so it’s easy to forget. Can you imagine what filthy things hide in these dark spaces?
· Switchplates and doorknobs
People touch the light switch and doorknobs countless times each day. That does not only house millions of germs, but that can also make your space look unhygienic if left filthy. Sanitation should also be a priority to prevent the spread of illnesses, which can significantly affect productivity.
The corner of steps may not be completely cleaned during daily dusting. All the buildup of debris, salt, and others can be removed if you have regular commercial cleaning.
· Picture frames
Picture frames come with glass cover, making them prone to fingerprints and grime. Even a canvas could be coated with dust if not cleaned regularly. Save your artworks so guests can appreciate these even more.
Vertical spaces can also accumulate dust and other particles. Textured walls and wallpapers are even more likely to get dirty. It’s also easy to forget wall surfaces you don’t usually see, such as those behind doors and furniture.
· Light fixtures
Though people don’t often look up to stare at your lights, dust buildup affects their shine. If you use fluorescent lights like most businesses, you may also notice many dead bugs in your bulb.
· Ceiling fan blades
These hard to reach areas will need expert commercial cleaning regularly. Usual cleaning tools may not be enough. It’s essential to clean dust and grime buildup on ceiling fans that circulate all the air in your office space.
· Ceiling tiles
Same as ceiling fans, ceiling tiles need special tools and cleaning solutions. Acoustic tiles can also collect a lot of dust because of their rough texture. Dark stains are also unsightly, especially if you have the common lightly painted ceilings.
These are hard to clean areas, which may be easier to ignore since they are not in sight. It is most especially applicable in bathroom and kitchen vents. However, dirty vents also affect the ventilation in your office space. Allergens, dust particles, and other bacteria can circulate and can pose health risks as well.
Baseboards are tricky fixtures because it has a lot of crevices where dust and grime can build up. Because these are in the corners of the room, all the dirt can easily be pushed and pile up in these areas. Baseboards are not only for function but are also meant to make your space look elegant. It would do the opposite if covered with dirt and stains.
· Countertop backsplash
When cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms, most of us only pay attention to the countertop. However, a dirty backsplash can leave a negative impression and make your entire space look unclean.
· Behind printers and copy machines
This equipment is heavily used daily, and dust and other particles can build up behind it. If left unclean, your machine can also be damaged.
