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.

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.

Food Courts Tables

We think that all food courts are clean and sanitized, but actually the cleaners use the rags and cloths that contain bacteria that can be spread around, such as E. coli.

Restroom Sinks

Fitting Rooms

Not only fitting rooms, but also such an action as trying on clothes can lead to catching different diseases. Be careful and use hand sanitizers at least.

Toy Stores

Electronic Shops

Different gadget shops are not safe because people touch these gadgets thousands of times, if not more. Scientists also conduct the research that showed that viruses can be easily transferred between screens (glass surfaces) and fingers.

How to Pack Correctly?

On February 14, 2014, in Cleaning advice, by admin

38-packing-correctlyVery often our work requires a great number of business trips; that is why every person who plans to go on a business trip needs to know how to pack things correctly.

Never pack as you go. Do not throw the things in your suitcase in the last minute, because more likely you will forget some stuff. It is recommended making up a list with the most essential things. This list will help you not to grab things that you don’t need and to be focused on the things you need.

Be sure not to take clothes that do not match. Organize your outfit at home; choose simple colors that can be matched with different colors and styles. Choose very basic things that can be appropriate for different meetings and gatherings.

Save space while packing. Shoes are the best place for small things like stockings. Don’t forget to use this space.

Also place your clothes into plastic bags, because plastic helps to reduce frictions. In plastic bags your clothes will be less wrinkled.

Good luck in your business trips!

On January 31, 2014, in Office area, by admin

36-hand-sanitizer-at-workExperts say that offices tend to have much more germs than other territories. What are the dirtiest things at the office? The answer is easy…the phone, computer and your desk. Scientists say that there are 400 times more bacteria on your desk than on an average toilet seat.

So, do we need a hand sanitizer at work?

YES, we need it.

Hand sanitizer at work will help you to get rid of bacteria, but you also need to remember that you need to wash your hands as often as possible and disinfect your workplace, telephone and computer with special disinfecting wipes.

It is recommended to keep a bottle with hand sanitizer on your desk.

Also place several bottles in public areas, kitchen (if you have one) and in a break room. If there is a special phone or other equipment in your office that is used by many people, place hand sanitizers near them too.

It is not recommended placing hand sanitizer in the restroom, because employees may substitute washing hands by using sanitizer. You need to remember that some bacteria cannot be killed by hand sanitizer that is why it is highly recommended washing the hands as often as possible, especially when the flue season starts.

Be healthy and take care!
