In a lot of ways, the work place is a lot like home. Even though things are being cleaned on a fairly regular basis, every few months it’s a good idea to go through the entire place, floor to ceiling, and freshen everything up. We’re talking the whole show here: carpet cleaning, wiping down the walls, cleaning upholstered furniture, cleaning tables, countertops, break rooms, bathrooms – no detail missed, no corner overlooked.
Here in Plymouth, the most popular time to schedule this kind of deep cleaning is in the spring. This makes a lot of sense. It’s during the winter months when people track in the most dirt, grime, and moisture. Even in workplaces where everyone’s careful to wipe their feet, after a few months of Massachusetts winter, things can start looking a little dingy. Having the Plymouth janitorial company come in to provide a thorough deep cleaning will visually improve the appearance of your facility. The workplace will smell better, and as a bonus, a clean workplace is healthier for your employees and your customers.
A Note About Floor Stripping and Waxing
While this technically doesn’t fall under the typical “Spring Cleaning” designation Spring is also a good time to have your Plymouth janitorial company strip and wax the floors. The reason why – timing. Many commercial floors are covered with layers of protective wax that keeps flooring material from being damaged or stained during the course of normal events. As these normal events happen, it’s the layers of protective wax that start looking grimy, scratched, and marked up. The way to restore the floor to its normal attractive appearance is to remove all the nasty old used up wax – in other words, stripping the floors – and then putting on a fresh, shiny new layer of protection by waxing the floors.
Here in Plymouth, wintertime is the most damaging time for typical floors. Once spring arrives, there’s just less wear and tear going on – and this will be true for the next five to seven months. To get the most value from having your floors stripped and waxed, do it in the spring.
