Office Cleaning Program and Janitorial Services
Cleaning an office and cleaning a home is different so the approach also needs to be different. Offices deal with the public and often directly, so keeping the office clean, sanitized and tidy is of the utmost importance.
Many office managers have questions about a cleaning program for their office which range from what supplies to use, what should be cleaned and how often the office should be cleaned.
Here is advice on how to establish an office cleaning program for your business:
Just like establishing what a business will need to perform its daily activities, the same can be said for an office cleaning program. Stop and remove yourself from the office and become a customer. Take a highly critical look at what you see; make notes of what should be a focus. This becomes paramount to your cleaning program. High-traffic areas need extra attention, so spending extra time in these areas is vital. Consider what parts of the office can be updated, rearranged or organized to better suit the customer or a cleaning program? These are crucial decisions.
Speak to your employees about office cleanliness and have them give frank answers. They understand the flow of the office so their input is vital. Additionally, their needs must be met to keep harmony in the office. If an employee has an allergy to certain cleaning products, it is important to know. You also will not want to affect the productivity of employees by having them be responsible for all of the required office cleaning. Learn what tasks they can reasonably do without affecting the work they need to get done.
Consult a Professional Cleaning Company
Once you have a personal list and the list from your employees, it is time to meet with a professional cleaning service, such as ServiceMasterABC. They will be able to help you meet all of the specific needs you have outlined as well as provide additional tips to help keep the office clean. The cleaning company can help you decide on a cleaning schedule whether it is daily, weekly, or monthly. They can also help to educate the employees on the cleaning program so they can help do their part to keep the office clean at all times.
In conclusion, when developing a cleaning program for your office, take into consideration the needs of the office space, and the needs of the customers and employees. Once you understand your needs, contact a professional cleaning company to provide additional suggestions.
