6 Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Office

Office Cleaning It may not feel like it right now, but spring is right around the corner, which means that many business owners are looking into tackling their spring cleaning. That’s because while you may not realize it, quite a lot of junk, dirt, and debris may have piled up in your office over the past few months.

This is not a project you should try to tackle on your own; rather, it is recommended that you hire professional office cleaning services to take on the major projects, such as cleaning carpets that lost their lustre because of salt, snow, and ice.

Having said that, here are some tips to help you prepare for your spring cleaning appointment.

Pick a Time for Your Office Cleaning

Spring tends to be a busy time for professional office cleaning services, so it’s wise to book now and avoid the rush. It is also recommended that you book the cleaning after your staff has left for the day.

Have Your Workers Clean Out Their Work Areas

Even if your employees have made an effort to keep their offices and cubicles clean throughout the winter, they should still go through their paperwork, supplies, and other items and figure out what can and can’t be disposed of. For confidential documents, you can hire a professional shredding company. Also be sure to rotate out magazines regularly.

Make Sure All Wires Are in Order

A professional cleaning should include vacuuming and waxing your floors, so it’s best to make sure that any tangled wires are organized prior to the cleaners’ arrival.

Book a Thorough Floor Cleaning

With the new harsh road salts that many municipalities are using and your employees are subsequently tracking in, your floors have likely seen plenty of wear and tear this winter. However, a professional floor cleaning and waxing can return your office’s floors to its former glory. Spring is also a season of renewal, so if you’ve been putting off having your floors restored, now is the time to call a cleaning service to take care of this project.

Get Salt and Stains Removed from Carpets

Powerful road salts don’t just take a toll on floors; your carpets can also be left worse for wear. There are a variety of ways that salt stains can be removed, but one of the most popular methods is steam cleaning, which uses hot water to break up the dirt, then sucks the dirty water back up again for a deeper cleaning.

Have Your Windows Professionally Cleaned

Your office’s windows have doubtlessly accumulated plenty of dirt over the winter, and with the recent extreme cold, making it outside to clean them may not be an option before the spring. Professional cleaning services use powerful yet safe cleaning materials to cut through months of accumulated dirt and leave your windows sparkling and clean.

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, Toronto’s Leading Commercial and Retail Cleaner, Warns: Winter Ice, Snow, and Salt Can Seriously Damage Carpets

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), November 25, 2013 – Clean-Slate Janitorial Services (www.clean-slate.ca) a Greater Toronto Area-based professional cleaning company that specializes in commercial office cleaning, retail maintenance, floor restoration, carpet cleaning, and construction site clean-up, warns that winter ice, snow, and salt treatment can seriously damage carpets. Clean-Slate Janitorial Services also announces that they are prepared to deep-clean carpets in any weather should an emergency arise.

“During the winter months, it can be difficult to keep carpets clean. Aside from snow and slush, ice control treatments applied to roads, sidewalks, and stairs can wreak havoc on carpets,” says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean-Slate Janitorial Services. “When carpets dry after having been walked on, what’s left behind are unsightly white salt stains.”

While vacuuming alone might help remove the stain and salt from the surface of the carpet, Panousis explains, it cannot reach all of the damaging residue attached to the fibres and latex backing of the carpet. In addition, road salt has a high alkaline content, which can permanently damage the integrity of a carpet. As a result, it’s important that salt and other winter treatments be removed as quickly as possible.

“People need to consider more than ice and snow when it comes to keeping their carpets clean over the winter months,” he adds. “It might surprise some to know that the threat of allergens is also high in the winter; in fact, those sensitive to mold spores and dust mites can find the winter months to be unbearable. That’s because people spend more time indoors during this time of year with the windows and doors closed. This can be a breeding ground for pollen, dust, allergens, smoke, and other irritants.”

Whether it’s a small residential home, restaurant, office, or large business, Panousis recommends hiring a professional carpet cleaning service. Clean-Slate Janitorial Services offers a wide variety of winter carpet cleaning services. The company’s environmentally friendly methods include using stream extraction—spraying hot water into the rug to break up salt, dirt, and allergens, which are then extracted using a special vacuum cleaner.

“Removing salt without the proper cleaners or the equipment can be difficult and can further damage the integrity of the carpet,” Panousis concludes. “This is why it’s best left to professional cleaners.”
