Spring is traditional time to take advantage of the favourable turn in the weather and get your office de-cluttered and organised. Once that’s done it’s a perfect time for a thorough Perth office deep clean.
At least every 6 to 12 months you should arrange for a comprehensive and thorough deep clean of your business premises. This will ensure that your office remains optimally healthy and fresh and boost office productivity by reducing the loss of employees due to sickness. It will also make your office a comfortable place to be in for both your staff and clients.
So what is involved with office deep cleaning?
Well, basically it means every little bit of office space is cleaned. Regular office cleaning focuses on the main areas of use in an office, whereas an office deep clean is the comprehensive cleaning of all surfaces and ‘hard to get at’ areas where dust and grime can build up over time. Naturally, this is much more time consuming and requires a greater number of cleaners than normal to complete. Also, it usually undertaken ‘after business’ hours so that the impact on your business operations is nil or minimal at the least.
Some of the additional cleaning activities undertaken as part of a deep clean are:
- Detailed cleaning of light fixtures and switches, as well as door handles.
- Thorough carpet vacuuming using an effective HEPA-filter vacuum plus deodorising.
- Cleaning and vacuuming blinds and windowsills.
- Cleaning inside and behind the fridge and other appliances.
- Carefully sanitising and scrubbing the toilets and other surfaces in the bathroom.
- Dusting baseboards, ledges, and vents.
- Disinfecting all kitchen surfaces with effective cleaning agents.
- Sanitising desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and phones.
An office deep cleaning will remove any harmful elements that are not visible to the naked eye. These harmful elements include allergens, dust particles, mould, and germs and bacteria that have adhered to your office surfaces and equipment.
Importantly, these are the things that your office deep clean should always include:
Thoroughly cleansed Floors
Floors really cop a hammering throughout the year, particularly over the Winter months when mud and dust can be carried inside under shoes. Plus there’s the spilled drinks and food that build up over time. After a while unsightly stains and marks are obvious and the floors can begin to smell. It hardly leaves a favourable first impression with clients.
Proper deep cleaning of your office floors requires the furniture to be moved around so that every part of the floor is cleaned. Firstly, office upholstery should be vacuumed and then the floors vacuumed and if necessary scrubbed to remove tough stains before being finished with wet and/or damp mopping.
If it’s smells ok then it should be clean – right? Not so! Germs and bacteria aren’t visible to the naked eye but they are there, especially in the toilets. Walls, floors, toilet bowls, urinals, vanities, and washroom fixtures need to be not just wiped down regularly but periodically scrubbed to prevent the build-up of bacteria and viral laden material which can remain infectious for a long time. This will help prevent the spread of disease amongst your staff and clients and will have the bonus of having clean, sparkling and visually appealing amenities.
Deep Clean the Carpets
Carpets look and feel great but the reality is that they can be a receptacle for a load of dust and dirt; dead skin cells and grime which can be a breeding ground for allergens and bacteria. Firstly, a high powered vacuum that traps dust and allergen particles is needed then a professional deep clean is required to remove the mould spores, pollen, and other allergens – this will vastly improve the indoor air quality of your office.
Wash the Windows
There’s nothing worse than looking out a window through grimy and streaked windowpanes – it can really spoil a great view. Professional window cleaning will remove the rain marks from winter and fine layer of pollen that has built up in the early months of spring to leave you with sparkling clean and clear windows. Sparkling clean windows let the sunshine in and provide pleasing reflections to the streetscape. You will be surprised how this can boost staff morale and engender confidence in clients towards your business.
Hard to reach places
These are typically the forgotten places that you wouldn’t normally think to clean but where harmful particles tend to accumulate and become potent in their toxicity. Most people wouldn’t think to clean the top of air conditioning units, tall cabinets and cupboards, ledges and ceiling vents nor the upper reaches of walls where cobwebs collect. With the correct dusting tools and microfibre cleaning equipment these places can be reached and cleaned and sanitised. This ensures there are no dark corners where germs and bacteria can fester.
Skirting boards, Architraves, Dados and Windowsills.
In reaction to allergies caused by dust mites, pollen, etc, staff often take anti-allergy medications which can lead to brain fog and decreased productivity. Dust easily builds up in in the most visible places without us even noticing. Periodic dusting and/or damp dusting of surfaces such as walls, doors, skirting boards, windowsills and other office décor elements, will reduce the build-up of allergens and can help ease allergies. Ideally, a professional cleaner would work from the top down and use an all-purpose cleaner to dampen a microfibre cloth to wipe off dust particles and marks. This type of refreshed and sanitised workplace is noticeable by all who use and visit the space.
Is it time for your Perth office deep clean?
As mentioned, it is recommended that deep cleaning services are undertaken every six to twelve months to ensure your office space is immaculate. However, the frequency will depend on size and type of your business and the number of employees. Also, a special visit by important stakeholders or hosting special in-house event are also perfect opportunities to schedule a deep office clean. As a rule of thumb as soon as your notice the regular maintenance cleaning isn’t delivering the desired results it used to, then it’s time to book a deep clean.
