Best Practices for Maintaining Cleanliness in a Commercial Space

Both employees and consumers are paying closer attention to their surroundings than ever before. This translates to some being hyper-sensitive about the cleanliness of your commercial space. Whether it be the office, food and beverage outlets, storefronts, or other public spaces, cleanliness has a significant impact on their perception of your business, and can impact everything from attracting and maintaining an excellent workforce to providing a pleasant experience for your customers.

Maintaining a consistent level of cleanliness can be a daunting task. Let’s face it, you have a lot to do every day and ensuring an impeccably clean environment is just something else to add to your already-full plate. Creating a strategic approach to commercial cleaning can be advantageous in more ways than one. Consider incorporating these best practices into your business model:

Develop a regular maintenance and cleaning schedule.

This can help to keep everyday traffic dust and dirt from building up in your commercial space. Don’t let things go too long between cleaning as it can result in expending more resources than if maintained regularly.

Make sure that you are in compliance with specialized guidelines pertinent to your industry.

Restaurants, health care facilities, manufacturing plants all have regulatory oversight that mandate the frequency and types of cleaning products required to be compliant.

Sanitization is uber-important in the post pandemic world.

Keep high-touch areas such as door handles, computer and cash register keyboards, and restrooms not only cleaned, but sanitized. Prevention of bacterial growth and germs will help keep your co-workers healthy and reduce absenteeism. Customers appreciate the availability of hand sanitizer and clean surfaces.

Consider harnessing the power of sustainable cleaning agents in lieu of harsh chemicals.

Energy-efficient and naturally sourced cleaners help to reduce the carbon footprint of your company and demonstrate care and consideration of the environment to your co-workers and customers.

Waste management is an integral part of maintaining commercial cleanliness.

Your commercial cleaning plan should include regularly scheduled removal of waste, and inclusion of recycling options for employees and customers alike.

Hire trained professionals with a solid reputation providing efficient cleaning services.

Whether you are looking for daily maintenance/janitorial services, a monthly deep cleaning service, or your business requires specialized cleaning, outsourcing can be an economical and efficient way to keep your commercial space up to snuff.
