Dirt, debris and dust can build up during the winter months and leave a facility looking less than its best. Conducting a thorough spring cleaning can give your facility a fresh boost from the winter elements to help enhance your business’s image. If the thought of a spring cleaning sounds daunting, partnering with a professional services provider that offers flexible programs can help make the process a breeze. 

Important tips to consider when spring cleaning your facility include:  

1. Organize and stock supply closets

Spring is a great time clean out supply closets and evaluate your supply needs. To help keep closets clutter-free, consider partnering with a provider who delivers supplies on demand. This helps ensure you will always have the cleaning supplies you need and trusted brands available without tying up money in inventory. Delivery of cleaning chemicals, laundered microfiber cloths and mop heads straight to your supply closet also saves time and frees up a significant amount of space to help keep them tidy and organized. Furthermore, using fresh, laundered cleaning tools enables you to clean at optimal performance.

2. Clean, disinfect and sanitize surfaces

Correctly cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing surfaces is important no matter the season to help prevent germs from spreading in a facility.  Consider an on-site surface disinfectant and  sanitizer spray service during your spring cleaning. These services apply a disinfectant or sanitizer to kill germs on hard, nonporous facility services, including flooring, doors, elevators, escalators, light switches, doorknobs and handrails. It will give you and your customers peace of mind that measures have been taken to reduce the spread of germs in the facility.

3. Deep clean restrooms

Dirt and bacteria build-up over time and can leave restrooms looking dull and even foul smelling – even with daily cleaning. Tackle restrooms by implementing a  deep cleaning service that removes built-up soils by sanitizing restroom surfaces and fixtures using a high-pressure, chemical injection sprayer. This technique cleans surfaces from top to bottom and removes soil and dirty water to help prevent cross-contamination, remove odor-causing bacteria, and to help your restrooms sparkle again. 

4. Clean mats

A quality mat system is the best defense to stop debris and moisture from entering your facility, but they can become dirty and saturated if not cleaned on a routine basis. To provide a welcoming entrance with clean, dry floors, regularly vacuum and launder your mats to remove contaminants and moisture. An alternative to purchasing mats is to rent them. A professional  mat service delivers fresh, clean mats on a regular basis to help protect the floors year-round. 

5. Supply quality hand hygiene products

After your spring cleaning is complete, ensure you have ample, quality hand sanitizer available. To help prevent the spread of germs, consider placing hand sanitizer stands and dispensers strategically around your facility. Employing a program is a great way to ensure you always have hand sanitizer available to meet user expectations and promote a healthy environment.
