How regularly should you have your office cleaned?
As an Office Manager, the last thing you want to see on a Monday morning is an untidy workspace with overflowing bins, dirty kitchen surfaces and an under-stocked bathroom. Hiring a professional office cleaning company is the simple solution.
Contracting a professional cleaning service is beneficial in more ways than one. A clean office encourages employee productivity – boosting morale and helping you reach standardised health and safety guidelines. A clean workspace also presents a positive first impression to clients visiting your office.
There are a variety of factors to consider before selecting a professional cleaning service that best suits your business and its requirements. These include the size of your office, the number of employees, how you intend to use your office space and the type of specialist cleaning services you may need.
At Swift Office Cleaning Services, we’ll tailor our cleaning services to suit your office space, while a dedicated Account Manager will ensure that every job is always completed to the highest standards.
Areas that need to be cleaned regularly
Our professional cleaning services are structured to suit your office space and areas that require the most attention.
To maintain a clean environment, and comply with health and safety regulations, communal kitchens and bathrooms should be cleaned daily. Duties include taking out the bins, vacuuming floors, wiping down surfaces and sanitising kitchen appliances.
Examples of weekly clean jobs include spray buffing hardwood floors, emptying and disinfecting the fridge and bin receptacles and restocking supplies.
Monthly cleaning services are mandatory for long-term office cleanliness. These comprehensive services drill down into the finer details that are often missed, like cleaning windows and cloth chairs, dusting all high surfaces and vacuuming air vents.
At least once a year
Some office areas only need to be tackled once a year such as deep cleaning your carpet and hardwood floors. Swift Office Cleaning Services are experts in providing deep cleaning services, ensuring your office will always reach the highest standards of cleanliness.
Factors that should be considered to best tailor cleaning services to your office space
Size of the area
The size of your office is a determining factor in deciding how best to service your office space. Companies with large spaces and multiple rooms require regular cleaning services to reach standardised health and safety guidelines.
Number of employees
The footfall and amount of people using the appliances and equipment in your office also plays an integral part in deciding what cleaning services you need. We find that companies with more than 100 employees, for example, require daily servicing in all communal areas, as well as, a general tidy around the office.
Purpose of your office
Is your office used to hold regular client meetings? To showcase projects? Host guest speakers? The more people visiting your office, the dirtier it will get. The Swift Office Cleaning Services team will quickly identify the areas that require regular attention and structure a cleaning plan that best suits your company to ensure your office always reflects your values and standards.
Specialist cleaning services
Depending on the type of appliances and equipment you use at your office, you may require specialist cleaning services, which could include office equipment cleaning and green cleaning services. Our Account Managers can guide you in determining the scope of services your office will require and with regular site visits and cleaning inspections you can rest assured that every detail of your clean will be covered.
