We are now on summer’s doorstep. The warm weather has arrived and the time has come for building owners and facility managers (if you haven’t already) to be sure you’ve laid the foundation for a fantastic summer. Beyond routine maintenance and cleaning, managers and owners should be taking on deep cleaning initiatives in advance for a fresh season of new visitors and occupants at your facility.
Whether you’re an office space, government agency, event venue, industrial building or warehouse, or an educational facility the appearance and cleanliness of your space is paramount. Our goal at Team Clean is to do just that. We want to make sure that every nook, corner, and floor is living up to the prestige of your business or property. From Quality Assurance programs to our hands-on management approach our team is fully qualified and committed to delivering exceptional results. Having the right team is crucial and having the right information is the best foundation to build upon.
If you’re not a Team Clean client, you may want to consider revisiting your game-plan for taking on deep cleaning initiatives. Here are 5 essential tips that you should strongly consider adopting from Buildings.com:
“1. Freshen up facility appearance: Dedicate time this spring to focus on small details. Whether patched and caulk lines need to be redone or bulbs and ballasts need to be replaced, addressing the small issues will improve to the overall appearance and operations of the facility. Partner with a vendor that is capable of handling these common handyman tasks to help maintain the building.
- Focus on flooring: Winter weather results in excessive wear and tear and a dulling of the appearance of flooring. Invest in a deep cleaning service to revitalize tile and carpeting. The combination of high-pressure steam, agitation, heat and extraction removes more dry particulate soil than any other method, helping delay expensive replacement costs and revitalizing floors to a like-new condition.
- Refresh restrooms: There’s no denying that daily cleaning helps facility managers maintain restrooms. Despite standard precautions, dirt and bacteria will build-up over time. Address dirty restrooms by implementing a deep cleaning service for restrooms that effectively removes built-up soils by sanitizing all restroom surfaces and fixtures using a high-pressure, chemical injection washer.
- Clean air conditioning units: Most air conditioning (A/C) units remain dormant throughout the winter. To ensure the best indoor air quality (IAQ) for building patrons, facility managers should complete a comprehensive A/C coil cleaning service. A/C units that are not properly cleaned can lead to lingering odors, allergies, premature unit failure and high energy bills. Completing regular A/C coil cleaning removes dirt, grime and built-up sludge from A/C units to improve IAQ, lower energy bills and extend the life of air conditioning units.
- Go green with spring: According to a recent Harris Interactive survey, 84% of U.S. adults prefer to do business with a company that uses environmentally-friendly products and practices. Select products that are Green Seal certified or meet the requirements for the EPA’s Design for the Environment Program (DfE). In addition, businesses can implement green cleaning methods, including dilution control chemical dispensers and reusable mops or wipes to limit environmental impact.”
