General cleaning of the business premises – Is your space ready?

Početna 5 Facility management 5 General cleaning of the business premises – Is your space ready?

General cleaning of the workspace has surely been on your mind for a while, especially since spring has recently arrived. And, it’s natural to freshen up not only your living space but also your working environment.

The goal of general cleaning in buildings where a large number of people spend their daily lives is to eliminate environmental pollutants that can have a direct negative impact on health.

Furthermore, tidying up the workspace can make employees more enthusiastic and energetic about their jobs.

Why should you conduct general cleaning of the the workspace at least every six months?

In addition to regular hygiene maintenance, general cleaning of the workspace should be conducted at least once a year. Ideally twice or more frequently if necessary, such as during construction work or relocation.

There are objective reasons for establishing this six-month standard: health and aesthetics.

Health reasons

To protect employees from infectious and other diseases, companies must take all necessary preventive measures. Starting from shared areas such as corridors, dining areas, and restrooms, to communal and individual offices.

Organized and systematic hygiene maintenance is expected daily or two to three times a week, depending on the facility’s requirements. However, without timely and regular thorough cleaning, complete hygienic integrity of the premises cannot be achieved.

Why is that?

Because deep removal of dust, dirt, grease, food residues from carpets, walkways, upholstered furniture (chairs, sofas, couches), as well as residues from footwear, eliminates pathogens and allergens from the entire space.

It is well-known that many people suffer from various allergies. But even for those who don’t have allergies, long-term exposure to an unhealthy working environment can lead to their development.

Mold, dust mites, spores, germs, viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms are the cause of many respiratory acute infections and chronic diseases. If not prevented, they can be costly for both employees and employers.

Since a single sick employee can trigger a chain reaction, overall productivity can be significantly reduced (or even halted!) for days. Therefore, it is best to constantly work on prevention and mitigating such risks. And, reducing this risk is only possible through professional commercial general cleaning of the workspace.

Aesthetic reasons

Is it even necessary to talk about how wonderful it is to work in a clean and tidy environment! A properly cleaned space is airy, bright, and exudes a pleasant atmosphere.

Windows without stains or marks, upholstery free of grease stains, and carpets without dark traces leave a favorable impression on anyone who spends time in that room.

And undoubtedly, it improves the overall mood!

Apart from machine cleaning of furniture and both hard and soft floor coverings, what other tasks does general cleaning of the workspace entail?

Experienced cleaners provide support to hygiene technicians by accessing all the non-exposed areas of the premises during general cleaning of the workspace. They remove dirt, dust, cobwebs, and mold, and clean the glass, window frames, and blinds.

Using appropriate chemicals and microfiber cloths (which are highly effective at eliminating microbes), they meticulously clean all the furniture. They pay attention to the vertical and horizontal legs of desks, all the solid parts of chairs, shelves, cabinets, kitchen and dining elements. Also, appliances, chandeliers, coat racks, notice boards, and flower pots.

Administrative equipment is not overlooked either: photocopy machines, computers and their components, monitors in conference rooms, and more.

Special attention is given to window cleaning due to their exceptional importance in allowing sufficient light and warmth.
