Commercial Carpet Cleaning

20 Commercial Cleaning Tips for Stress-Free Building Maintenance

A well-maintained building makes an excellent first impression. Of course, the outside is the first thing visitors will see, but the inside matters just as much. Clean floors, uncluttered workspaces and fresh-smelling carpets all make people feel welcome – whether they’re employees or potential customers. Having the right information and putting it into practice is a winning combination.

How To Keep Your Outdoor Space Safe

USE A BROOM AND SWEEP WALKWAYS leading to the front doors frequently to remove debris and dirt from the surface.

• HOSE OFF THESE AREAS occasionally to remove substances and stains.

SOME LIGHT PRESSURE WASHERS CAN BE USED ON SURFACES. Test an inconspicuous area before proceeding, ensuring there’s no loss of grout, and that no etching or chipping of natural stone occurs. *Be cautious of high-pressure washers, which can easily damage concrete and tile surfaces, wearing them out much faster than normal.

Here are 20 commercial cleaning tips and tricks you can follow to keep your office space or business in tip-top shape.

Change your air filters

Air filters in your heating and air conditioning system are a magnet for outside yuck, such as allergens, dirt, dust and – in some extreme cases – mildew.

Dirty air filters have unhealthy and costly consequences

Frozen coil

The coil freezes because there isn’t enough airflow.

Premature furnace failure

Dirty filters also cause the furnace to work that much harder, making the equipment not last as long. You may face an expensive repair or total replacement.

Carpet wears out faster

Dirt, dust and oil particles that escape the soiled filter land on carpets. As the carpet is walked on, the soil grinds into the fiber acting like sandpaper, causing the carpet fibers to break down more quickly. It’s recommended that you replace air filters monthly, but that frequency also depends on the type of filter you use. Advanced filters can last a little longer between cleanings and replacements. Consult the manufacturer of the filter or the furnace for a recommended schedule.

But, when in doubt….replace it!

Here’s a bonus business cleaning tip:

Add commercial furnace filter changes to your calendar. Like NOW, before you forget.

Clean your carpets on a schedule

Often, some of the carpet doesn’t need to be cleaned with the rest of the business carpets, such as in an unused office or the top floor of a four-story building. For example, the top floor of a building won’t get as much soiling, because most of the yuck has already been transferred to entries, stairs and elevators. BUT (Why does there always need to be a but?), let’s use the fourth floor as an example again. Even though you so kindly left the soil from your shoes on the first floor, the carpet still needs to be cleaned.

A ROUGH SURFACE IS MORE PRONE TO COLLECT DIRT AND MILDEW. Periodically sprinkle some baking soda over the affected areas to slow the growth of moss and mildew, and – as an added bonus – it’s all-natural and not harmful to the environment.
