organizing-working-tableWorkplace is a personal “control center”. Your personal efficiency depends on how rationally and well-minded it is organized. We’ll show you how to clean-up a mess on the working table and to become much more efficient.
Nowadays there is a profession called “professional organizer”. This person helps clients to clean up rooms and offices, papers and electronic files, as well as to create an individual planning system.

Studies show that in average a person loses at least an hour per day only because of disorganization. And people get terribly annoyed when they cannot find something. After all organizing and order establishment take much less time. That is why experts recommend organizing the workspace to maximize efficiency and productivity.

Recommendation 1. Arrange everything correctly

The placement of your monitor is important not only for your efficiency but for your health as well. It should be located at the level of your eyes, and the distance between the eyes and monitor should be approximately 18-22 inches.
Place the items you use more frequently (your telephone, stationery, etc.), at the side of your dominant hand. You’ll see how convenient it is: there will be make a long arm for them, knocking down everything around.

Recommendation 2. Rational use of stationery

You scarcely need every day the whole abundance of the stationery which can be found at hand on the table. Put on the table only those office supplies that you use every day. Others put in a box or a pencil case and keep it in a drawer, but rather somewhere away. Because getting up and walking from your table to get a pen, pencil or anything else, for some time you’re turning the brain off from the project you’re working on. This will allow you see it from a new perspective, when you come back. Some experts emphasize that it is more convenient when workers store office stationery supplies in a separate place (for example, in a common cabinet or on a rack), instead of placing them in their drawers.

Recommendation 3. Use the stickers for notes without fanaticism

Monitor pasted by numerous colored papers as a message board is neither useful nor productive. When there are too many such reminding prompts they become useless.
Be restrained – the reminders on stickers should be really important and preferably short-term.

Recommendation 4. Be reasonable with the personal items

It is significant to keep balance between professional working environment and personal life on the workplace. And it’s not easy.
Family photos, vacation souvenirs, and other pleasant trifles can warm your heart and cheer you up during the day. Nevertheless, the item which are too precious for you and may cause a whirl of memories, are too distracting. Because even if we do not notice and realize this, when our sight slides on the subjects, the brain works on the information. Specialists recommend keeping on the table not more than 3 personal things.

Recommendation 5. Regulate your “communication” with e-mail

Even nowadays email remains the most often used and convenient communication method in the Internet. But it can take a heavy toll on efficiency if you will constantly be diverted by emails.
Professional planners/organizers highly recommend checking the e-mail several times a day, at precise times. The remaining time should be devoted to working only. And don’t forget to turn off the e-mail notification on your desktop, so that it won’t destroy your “working mood”.

Recommendation 6. Leave some free space on the table for any paperwork needed

At times your working table is so overloaded that no place can be found to sign a paper or to create a hand-written document.
Try always to keep on your table an “island” free of items (the side where it will be located depends on your dominant hand). It shouldn’t necessarily be big, a space of 10 × 15 inches will be quite enough.

Recommendation 7. Arrange work processes

The documents which have nothing to do with your current work should not be kept ready at hand. If your table is heavily littered with various papers on the projects you’ve done in the past, you are doing now and with drafts of your coming projects, be sure chaos will set in. The recommendation of experts in this case is to sort the papers by folders:
-important and urgent;
-urgent and unimportant;
- important and not urgent;
- unimportant and not urgent.
Use special organizers for the folders and do not pile them, this will make the workflow easier.

Recommendation 8. Clean up as frequently as possible

The mess helped Alexander Fleming and Alan Turing to perpetuate their talent. But such illustrations are single. For the majority of people a mess has a negative effect, it decreases concentration and efficiency. You should regularly ask yourself a question: are all the items located in their place on your working table?
To clean up the table at the end of the working day takes 5-10 minutes, and the next day you’ll be able to start organized and without any distraction.

42-cleaning-tips-restaurantToday, professional cleaning in catering establishments has become not a luxury, but a real production necessity. Cleanliness of the premises is directly linked to the health of people who visit the restaurants, cafes, bars, and therefore the requirements of regulatory health authorities as to production and storage facilities are very high.

Hot Line / Food Preparation area

Cleaning of this space is the most time- and labor-consuming. Deep cleaning of the hot line is conducted mainly at night-time. At the initial stage of cleaning the filters are removed from the hoods and put into the degreasing solution, and all cutting boards which were in use are placed in a protein concentrate, the windows are washed. Next comes the turn of the walls; they are washed with a solution of a bactericidal alkaline detergent that is removes grease and oil very well from any solid surface.
Then the numerous kitchen appliances should be cleaned. The specifics of this type of work are that the cleaners often have to deal with the grease on the walls of the oven. For this purpose there are special cleaning agents in a form of concentrated gel, which has a strongly alkaline medium. The agent is applied to the walls of ovens and cooking tops, and after a while carbon deposits dissolve and can be easily washed off even with a sponge.
The next step is to clean refrigerator / freezer, previously removing products from it, then shelving, cabinets and work tables. For their cleaning the same cleaning agents can be applied as for the cleaning of walls.
A separate phase of deep cleaning is a power cutoff and the purification of all electric motors of the equipment from grease, oil and dust.
In conclusion, the floor is cleaned. First, all the focus is on ramps, draining. The degreasing chemical is poured in them, that dissolve all the grease deposited on the pipes, and at the end of the shift the enzymes friendly substance must be poured. It is composed of bacteria that decompose grease and at the same time eliminate the bad smell.
Next, the floors are washed by the floor scrubber using a universal kitchen cleaning detergent.
Regular daily cleaning of hot lines / food preparation areas is not so time-consuming. It includes cleaning of the equipment, working surfaces and floors.

Cold kitchen / Storage / Bakery

In the cold kitchen the main problem is associated with the juice from fruits and vegetables. But during daily cleaning using universal cleaning products for kitchens there should not be any difficulties in removing these stains. If the rules of food storage are observed, the warehouses can be cleaned only once a month. And the bakery available at the territory of a restaurant is equated by the complexity of cleaning to the hot line.

Dishwashing area

In addition to the basic steps of cleaning the dishwashing department, do not forget about the main functional purpose of these premises, in accordance with which it is equipped with a large stainless sink and dishwasher. Sink is designed for soaking and washing of kettles, grilles and other large cookware. To wash such cookware the detergents are used which have a neutral reaction and are absolutely safe for hands and do not require rinsing.
All other glassware used by restaurants is cleaned in the dishwasher, for which there are specialized detergents. They consist of a cleaning agent removing the main contaminations and rinse aid, which prevents the formation of streaks and reduces drying time of glassware. Thus, the dishwashing process is fully automated. We should not forget about the maintenance of the dishwasher itself. The main problem here is the high concentration of salts in tap water. Therefore, periodically run dishwashers idle, using special agent, cleaning their parts from limescale.

Equipment and inventory

To the large equipment used in cleaning refers the floor scrubber (floor washing machine). It has a big round brush, with the help of which it removes grease from the floor surface. Less bulky and more affordable is the cleaning inventory. This can be a bucket with reinforced back for removing water from the mop.

As you can see, the deep cleaning of the kitchen is a time- and labor-consuming process. The best and easiest way to get your kitchen sparkle is to entrust the cleaning to professionals like Pro Quality Office Cleaning Company. Our staff will do all the needed cleaning quickly and meticulously, without missing any, even smallest, spot. All you need is just to contact us!

For the office to make a favorable impression on visitors and partners, to be comfortable and cozy, the question remains of daily cleaning.

Some business owners include the cleaners into the staff team, so that they could clean the office up. However, as practice shows, such action is not always expedient. These employees typically have the same working schedule as everyone, so cleaning is carried out during working hours of the whole office staff that interferes and sometimes even stops the production process of the entire office.

Many people like it better when the morning cleaning of offices is held and by the beginning of the working day the office is shining with cleanness and smells fresh. The office team works in a comfortable environment, nothing distracts from the production process.

Evening cleaning of offices is carried out by experts of a cleaning company after the end of the working day, when the premises are already vacated by employees and visitors. All rubbish, dirt and dust that has accumulated over the business day, are removed by means of special agents and equipment. To carry out cleaning works high-quality detergents and cleaning agents are used, which ensure the provision of crystal cleanliness.

Taking care about health and welfare of the office staff, about their comfort, the ecologically-friendly means are used during cleaning. Having sufficient experience in the use of various detergents, cleaning company chooses quality materials with low price. This approach reduces the cost of cleaning works, which significantly saves the customer’s budget.

If the working peculiarity of an office is a work activity during the evening time, the morning is more preferable. In this schedule, the employees usually start working day not very early, which makes it possible to conduct high-quality cleaning activities in the early morning. After such cleaning office meets its employees, customers and visitors with purity and freshness.

For companies, whose working day begins in early morning, evening cleaning of the office is optimal. Workers of the cleaning companies are ready during the evening time to restore the order and prepare the office for the early working morning of the next day. No household trifles will distract the company staff from carrying out their job assignments.

For the successful solution of office problems and achievement of success in business, you must completely devote yourself to production process, without being distracted by such things as office cleaning. Trusting the cleaning in the office to professionals you will reach the productive heights.

THE DIRTIEST PLACE IN AN OFFICE

95-dirtiest-place-in-officeAll people are different and are respectively afraid of different things. For example, now many people are afraid of the economic crisis. They are afraid of losing their jobs, bank deposits, they are afraid just of tomorrow. Meanwhile, each of us is surrounded by things far more fearful than the loss of a job!

American scientist Charles Gerba considers that the usual office equipment, such as a telephone, a keyboard or a mouse, is a serious threat to human health. According to the results of his research, some workplaces are a hundred times dirtier than public toilets.

For example: a mouse which has not been cleaned for several weeks, contains about 1,676 microbes per square inch, and the keyboard – 3300 microbes based on the same area.

The dirtiest place in the office is the phone. Due to regular calls, conversations with colleagues, visitors and customers there are approximately 25,127 microorganisms on one square inch of the phone buttons.

On average, the usual office is home for about 21,000 microbes per square inch. Toilets in the same offices are 400 times cleaner – there are only up to 50 microbes per square inch there.

Microbiologists investigated the different surfaces of three thousands different working places and determined which office space represents the greatest danger to the health of employees. Here are some figures for comparison:

● phone – 25 127;
● desktop surface – 20,961;
● keyboard – 3295;
● mouse – 1676;
● toilet seat – 49.

The scientist reminds that microorganisms carrying the viral infections, such as influenza, can live on different office surfaces for 3 days. Moreover spilled coffee, crumbs, dirty mugs on the table are a favorable environment for the development and reproduction of microbes.

Only regular disinfection can solve the problem. Wipe the phone and keypad with alcohol. This simple procedure destroys 99% of germs.

HOW TO CLEAN THE CEILING FROM DUST

On July 6, 2016, in Cleaning advice, by admin

94-ceiling-cleaningDust on the ceiling is quite common, because we usually do not clear the ceiling during cleaning. As a result, the tiny dirt and dust particles are deposited on the surface of the ceiling, and it looks dull and gray. In premises with high humidity and in the kitchen steam and smoke also settle on the ceiling.

Employees of our cleaning company will professionally and efficiently perform cleaning of your ceiling from dust and dirt. If you want to do it yourself, you may use pieces of advice given by our experts.

Dry cleaning method is the best one to clean the dust from the ceiling.

Purchase a long-handled brush with soft hair and use it merely for cleaning dust from the ceiling. This brush is convenient for removing cobwebs; it collects and retains fine dust and dirt without smearing it over the surface. It is extremely difficult to damage the ceiling surface while cleaning with such a brush.

To remove dust from the ceiling, a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush-tip may be used. To avoid scratching the ceiling, the tip of the vacuum cleaner must be kept at a small distance from the ceiling surface.

If the ceiling is particularly dirty, it is necessary to clean it manually. This requires a ladder or a sturdy table. The choice of cleaning method depends on the ceiling surface.

Emulsion paint 

Emulsion paint is the most common finishing coat of the ceiling in our homes. This coating does not tolerate wet cleaning; water contact with such water-based paint can cause stains and blotchiness. Therefore, the dry cleaning will suit better for such ceiling.
Small contamination can be cleaned from the ceiling surface with special wipes. Before using them, check the effectiveness of their impact on the paint at an inconspicuous place.

Oil paint 

Taking care of ceilings covered with oil or latex paint is much easier. All-purpose detergent can be used to remove contaminants from such a ceiling. Dissolve it in water and wipe the ceiling with a sponge or a cloth soaked in this solution. In order not to leave any water stains or blotches on the ceiling, thoroughly wipe it with a clean dry cloth.

Polystyrene tiles 

Ceiling tile lined with polystyrene tiles with protective film on them can be cleaned with a damp sponge or cloth. If there is no protective film, only dry cleaning is recommended.

Stretch ceilings 

While cleaning the stretch ceilings you should be very careful not to damage the surface. They can be washed with lukewarm water with using some specialized detergent. To clean the surface use a spray bottle, a soft damp cloth or if you like it more – microfiber cloth. Excess moisture should be removed from the surface in the direction of the welding joint. The cleaned surface must be carefully wiped with a dry cloth.

Important! When cleaning the stretch ceilings do not use hard brushes or abrasive detergents.

5-commercial-cleaningCleaning companies can efficiently and comprehensively solve issues for businesses concerning cleaning the business territory, office cleanliness, maintaining an appropriate level of cleanliness and even the timely management of all sorts of wastes and garbage.

Business structures are the ones who most commonly involve (pay for) services of cleaning companies. It is also worth mentioning that quite often industrial and commercial enterprises after the conclusion of the contract on the usual periodic cleaning, after considering the whole range of possible benefits from such cooperation, move on to more intensive cooperation with a cleaning company. For example, they hire the specialists to prepare the rented premises for holding various business events or corporate entertainment events, followed by cleaning the place of the event.

Cleaning companies are always ready to provide services in quick or deep cleaning of premises, such as cleaning the windows, getting rid of dust, bringing the flooring in a perfect state, keeping bathrooms perfectly clean, etc. And after all representatives of any business understand like no one else, that order and cleanliness can be used to create a good atmosphere in the team and improve working efficiency, and this opportunity should always be used.

Peculiarities of professional cleaning

- deep cleaning of premises, including window cleaning, cleaning of carpets and flooring, wall panels, upholstered furniture;

- cleaning after repair, relocation and construction works, conducting the intermediate cleaning to perform various repair stages;

- cleaning of common areas, such as entrance halls, elevators, underground parking;

- external cleaning of facades and glazing of different types and complexity;

- seasonal cleaning services of the adjacent territory and roofs – snow or leaves removal, washing the sidewalks, breaking the ice;

- cleaning and disinfection of premises, including industrial ones.

Customers can order both, a comprehensive performance of works, and carrying out one-time cleanings. Fast performance of works and their high quality determines the level of a specialized company.

The main advantages of addressing to a cleaning company for cleaning and disinfection of premises are as follows:

- time saving – certain types of work can be quickly and accurately performed only by a specialist, constantly improving his skills in this area. Cleaning company also determines the number of employees who will optimally accomplish the assigned tasks;

- cleaning with using professional equipment and special agents – purchase of cleaning machines and special care products for cleaning surfaces made of various materials, as a rule, is not provided by any family or corporate budget;

- cost saving – the high enough cost of professional cleaning services is still lower than the purchase of expensive equipment, safe detergents and risks to reduce the quality of cleaned premises and equipment;

-reduction of risk of unfair provision of services and preservation of property – addressing to a professional team reduces the likelihood of property damage, poor performance of works or theft of valuable things, than a one-time involvement of individuals to perform such works.

How to Take Care of Paintings

On December 11, 2015, in Cleaning advice, by admin

91-taking-care-of-paintingsThe harmony of images and colors on the canvases awakes a storm of emotions in humans. Joy, peace, serenity, inspiration – this is far from a complete list of feelings that we are experiencing looking at a work of art. The desire to constantly experience these emotions makes a man already for many centuries to decorate his dwelling with various artworks.

If your house or office is decorated with pictures, remember that they require a special care. It seems what can be easier? Just hang a picture on the wall and admire it. In reality, in order for the picture not to deteriorate but to delight your eyes throughout many years, several very simple rules should be followed.

- Do not hang a picture in direct sunlight, in places with high humidity, near heaters and above air conditioners, because changes in temperature and humidity may have an extremely negative impact on it.

- Try to do everything so that drops of water and fat do not get on your picture, do not touch the drawing with the fingers.

- Pictures do not tolerate fumes and tobacco smoke, because they absorb the smell and get covered with unpretty coating.

Watercolor Paintings
Watercolors are insufficiently durable. Over time, especially under the influence of direct sunlight, they lose their brightness and fade. Furthermore, the paper on which the drawing is made also fades, gets easily contaminated and becomes brittle.
If dirt gets on a watercolor painting, under no circumstances should you use water or an eraser for cleaning. For gentle cleaning, you can use a rolled-up white bread crumb. Thus it is necessary to process not only the contaminated area, but the entire surface.

To protect the watercolor drawings, experts advise to put them in a frame under glass. Due to the fact that the contact with glass also harms the drawing, it is the most advantageous to use the passé partout.

If your painting is hidden behind the glass, taking care of it becomes absolutely not burdensome: periodically clean the dust with a soft cloth from the glass, from the frame and the backside of the painting. To clean the glass, do not spray on it a wiper; the glass is better to be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened with water and some glass cleaner.

Oil Paintings
Paintings in oil are created on canvas, cardboard or wood. Such pictures, as a rule, are not hidden behind the glass. A picture painted in oils dry several years, therefore you should hang them in a warm place which a good ventilation. After a layer of paint hardens experts advise to cover the picture with varnish. It gives the picture additional stability to sunlight, water and mechanical damage. Place the picture at an angle to the light. If there is no varnish on the surface, glare of light will be uneven.

Painting in oils must be dusted from time to time. From the front side the dust is removed in one direction with a dry flannel or velvet cloth. Do not use a brush, a duster or a vacuum cleaner. The backside of the painting should be dusted with the same cloth. The cleaning of the backside of a painting should be done at least once in half a year. The dust from the frame is cleaned with a soft cloth. Faded gilding of the frame will restore its gloss if you wipe it with a flannel cloth soaked in a mild alcohol solution.

Experts advise not to use water and detergents for cleaning the pictures if the paint layer is cracked, this can irrevocably ruin the picture.
If the picture is heavily contaminated or deteriorated, do not try to correct the damages yourself. Only a professional restorer will be able to do a good job in high quality restoration of the picture.

Clean Windows in the Office – EASY!

On November 27, 2015, in Window cleaning, by admin

90-office-window-cleaningCleaning windows in an apartment or office, at first glance, is not the most difficult task. In most cases, getting ready for a big cleaning, usually between dusting and cleaning the office equipment, people begin to clean windows. And we agree with that. Cleaning of office premises, of course, has its own peculiarities and nuances, but we recommend starting with window cleaning. Let in your office more light and sun! Then the rest of the work on cleaning the office will be much faster and better!

Our cleaning company provides services on cleaning windows  in premises of any type. We qualitatively perform our work in the shortest possible time and at the lowest prices. Moreover, we clean windows not only inside but also outside. No building is too high or wide for us. More information about window cleaning – in Section OFFICE WINDOW CLEANING SERVICE. COMMERCIAL WINDOW CLEANING.

But let us return to our task. Before you start cleaning, check the the availability of detergents.

Means for cleaning the windows

For window cleaning, you will need:

• A brush or a paintbrush to clean the glass and window frames from dust and stubborn stains
• Microfiber cloth
• Squeegee with rubber
• Washing liquid for windows

Let’s consider the listed tools and equipment in details.

Brush instead of cloth
To remove dust, we do not recommend using a cloth, but a brush. Or even a paint brush. Wiping the dust with a cloth may leave dirty marks on the glass and frames, which then will leave spots and stains. Best of all is in the beginning to dust off by using a brush and collect the dust with a vacuum cleaner. You can even vacuum the glass and frame – it will be much more effective than using cloths. It does not take much time, but will greatly facilitate the subsequent washing of glass and help to cope with cleaning faster and better.

Always use a squeegee for window. It has a rubber blade that effectively cleans dirt from the glass. The main difference of squeegee from the cloth – combined with a good glass cleaner it copes well with fat, so there will be no streaks or blotches or greasy stains. The main thing is to clean the rubber well after each passage. And ensure that the rubber is not worn off and is not deformed.

Cloth is also useful
Cloth can also be useful for us, but only for cleaning window frames and making the final gloss on the window glass. Prepare several cloths of soft microfiber.

Often, instead of using cloths people use different handy tools. For example, it is recommended to wipe the glass and mirrors with old newspapers. This method has been widely used by our grandmothers in the past, but nowadays it is still better to use modern materials. Moreover, the newsprint, after getting wet, leave dirt on the glass, barely noticeable at first, but later creating a lot of problems.

Powder or alcohol?
And at the end – a little bit about cleaning agents and detergents. Do not use washing powder or soda for cleaning your windows – due to the abrasive substances in their composition, which can scratch and “wear” window glass. Best of all is to dissolve instead in warm water some ordinary soap and rinse the window glass with this solution. But the best choice is alcohol-based liquids for window washing. As for the efficiency and ability to cope with grease on the glass such means has no equal!

And in the conclusion – about the time suitable for washing the windows. It sounds strange, but cloudy cool weather, and not a hot and sunny day, is better for window cleaning. The fact is that in the sun the water used for cleaning dries too quickly – before it is removed. As a result, the stains and unpleasant streaks remain on the glass. Therefore, wait for a cool day, and start a big cleaning in your office.
