With the arrival of the new year, most people are compiling lists of goals to achieve in 2017: Personal, health, business, financial, and many more key aspects of life. At work, there are multiple areas every individual tries to succeed within their careers. Whether it’s gaining more sales and business, a company must begin at the core of their company. In some cases, the main office acts as the root where employees work out of on a daily basis and the central operation headquarters. Some companies’ facilities are strictly open to their customers for use every day. For example: Gymnasiums, schools, libraries, retail stores, medical facilities, condominiums, and more. Therefore, businesses must present to their customers and employees an exceptionally clean facility. The bottom line is without a great janitorial staff, an office or work space can deteriorate on all levels: Dirty environment, sick and dangerous germs, angry customers, and upset work staff or tenants. To avoid these mixed emotions, one should consider hiring a professional and experienced commercial cleaning company to care for their office janitorial needs. 2017 should be a year of productivity, growth, and happiness within a company. Begin with caring for the fundamental structure of a company, and you will see changes within a business. Here are Apple Corps’ best 2017 New Year’s office cleaning solutions:
Shiny floors & Clean carpets: Our first resolution is to maintain clean floors and carpets. Consider having a scheduled carpet or floor cleaning multiple times this year. The frequency will be based on a few factors. What type of industry do you work in? If your company is industrial, or if you have heavy machinery that can create a lot of stains, spots, or dirt, then consider having your floors done every few weeks. Do you have a lot of foot traffic in your facility? If so, floor surfaces can be damaged quicker than you think. Dirt, dust, germs and other unwanted particles are brought in by people’s shoes; consequently, compromising the condition of your floors and carpets. If you have a ton of foot traffic, you should have your floors done quarterly or at least twice a year. Professional cleaning companies offer different types of floor janitorial services including: Stripping and waxing VCT floors, machine scrubbing, high speed buffing, carpet cleaning, steam cleaning, and many more depending on the material of your floor surfaces. Talk to your office cleaning company about scheduling floor maintenance periodically throughout 2017.
Dust free surfaces: This begins with removing the clutter. Most people find it difficult to purge out the old. But, one must let go of the old in order to allow new stuff to enter. The office is a precious space to most employees because it’s the environment in which one works in. A cluttered, dusty, and dirty work space can clutter the human mind. Have you ever tried working at a desk that is completely cleared off minus the essentials (computer, keyboard, mouse, pen, and paper)? Try this experiment: Completely clear off your desk minus the few things you need on a daily basis. Next, wipe down all surfaces to ensure there is no dust lingering on your desk surfaces. Finally, get to work! See how productive you can be in your office minus the dirt and clutter surrounding you. Chances are, you are most likely going to have a more successful work day. It’s imperative that dusting occurs on a weekly basis in your office.
Healthier Environment: One of the most important goals an office should strive for is a healthy and clean work space. Professional office cleaning can eliminate sick days in your office. People tend to get sick and go into work surviving on medication and tea. However, this runs the risk of their coworkers of catching their cold and illness. Prevent the spread of germs and sickness by sanitizing your offices. Create a safe work one by practicing proper disinfection and sanitary procedures. An experienced cleaning team can facilitate a disinfection plan for your business. By simply spraying and wiping down commonly handled surfaces in your office, disinfection sprays are powerful enough to kill contagious germs. Start the year off right by building a healthier environment for you and your employees.
Make more money! As talked about in the other cleaning resolutions, a clean work space creates productivity. Productivity equals more work and ultimately more money. Healthy (and happy) employees will produce better work results. In the same sense, if you have a facility open to the public, you want to establish a good reputation for being a very clean business. Gymnasiums, health clubs, medical facilities, and all other types of companies may thrive on the fact that they have the cleanest establishment. Having a notoriety such as this may bring in more business for those types of companies.
