Spring has sprung! The flowers are blooming and the sun is shining. Now that the snow is gone, it’s time to do some serious spring cleaning, both inside and outside.
When it comes to a commercial facility, spring cleaning refers to the cleaning and maintenance of those spots around your building that need special attention after the winter months – months where visitors and employees are bringing snow and salt into the facility.
We clean some of these areas during the winter months as part of our regular commercial cleaning services, but spring time gives us a chance to really get the dirt out, without the worry that someone will track snow, ice and salt back in the next day.
In the spring, we focus our commercial cleaning efforts on a number of areas:
Carpets take a beating in winter. Snow, ice, salt, mud and debris walk in on every shoe or boot that sets foot in your building. We make thorough cleaning, especially of high-traffic areas, a priority because it rejuvenates your carpet’s appearance, adds freshness to the air, and helps extend the life of your carpet. We address tough stains, too, to prevent them turning into repair or replacement issues. This cleaning includes a thorough cleaning of your entrance mats, as well.
Our regular commercial cleaning takes care of the flooring people see, but spring cleaning is the time to “get moving.” That means moving desks, file cabinets, large conference tables, etc. to get every last bit of dirt and dust. These are the spots where dust bunnies and grime hide out, which can contribute to allergic reactions, bacteria and germs.
Winter snow and sleet leave a filmy residue on windows, and this is the time to clear things up and let the sun shine in! Low windows that may be in contact with salt used to melt snow will get special attention. We’ll also clean the windows on the inside. This is also a good time to deep clean your window blinds, if you have them.
Dusting those hard-to-reach areas, such as high beams, the tops of light fixtures, ceiling fans, air vents, and tops of doors, can improve the performance of your HVAC system and reduce allergens that can cause illness.
Spring upholstery cleaning rounds out your spring cleaning plan. Removing dust, dirt, stains and grease from upholstery improves furniture’s appearance and extends its life.
Sidewalks, ramps and entry ways never look worse than after the last snow of the season has melted. A buildup of salt and sand, along with normal dirt and debris and staining, detract from a professional appearance and leave a less-than-positive first impression. We can pressure wash your sidewalks, walkways, and outside walls for a “new and improved” spring image!
