78-professional-office-cleaningProfessional, high-quality and inexpensive office cleaning by a cleaning company is a common phenomenon in a modern world. The cleaning process is more and more frequently entrusted to specialized companies. Well, and it’s needless to say that cleaning should be done regularly.
The principle “It’s clean not where people clean up, but where they don’t litter” allows only increasing the interval between bringing an office in order, but in whatever way there comes a time when you need to take up the dusters and carry out this wearisome process. The list of things required for cleaning the premises, especially for deep cleaning, is quite impressive. You will need mops, brooms, buckets, vacuum cleaner, dustpans, sponges and all sorts of cleaning agents.

One of the principal and seemingly inconspicuous problems is dust. It can adversely affect the health of your employees, who breathe it, and some can become allergic to it. For dust control you will need special wet and dry wipes, which should always be in excess. It is also desirable to have antibacterial sprays in stock for more qualitative cleaning of surfaces.

One of the extremely important points is also a proper cleaning of expensive office equipment by applying special suitable means, in order not to damage it and not to lose the information stored on the computers. Therewith, a regular cleanup of the equipment will extend its life. Office cleaning isn’t finished with this, to be more precise – it’s only the first stage of a long and hard work.

Before you start to wash the floors, windows and walls, you need to use a vacuum cleaner. Dry cleaning always precedes the wet cleaning.
Thus, cleaning assumes the possession of various expert skills. To perform this process with a high quality you will need to:

·    know the cleaning procedure;
·    know the types and application of various cleaning agents;
·    cleanup the office equipment carefully but thoroughly in order not to damage it.
In addition you need to possess certain skills to do it quickly and efficiently.

Personnel recruitment for cleaning

Well, you provided yourself with everything required for regular professional cleaning of the office premises in the company. But who will do it? Certainly not office workers. And it is impractical to organize your own cleaning department. Hence there comes a time to search for a cleaning lady who will thoroughly carry out her work. This is also quite a difficult problem, and the search for a reliable employee may drag on. And if you apply to a specialized recruitment agencies for personnel selection, you will have to pay them quite a large amount.

The cleaning lady that you find will come to the office at regular time intervals and will establish order and cleanliness while all the staff members are busy with their work. In order not to distract the manager she can ignore cleaning the workplace and the space around it. It’s obvious that with such a superficial way of cleaning the carpets and decorative components gradually fade, monitors become dull, a thick layer of dust forms in hard to reach places… Eventually even a cosmetic repair may be needed.

But the cleanliness of the office determines the reputation of the company. Clients, visiting your company, usually pay a close attention to the cleanliness and tidiness of the office.

It’s never too late to think about how to maintain the cleanliness of the office. Easier not to puzzle over this question but to entrust the deep office cleaning to the team, specially prepared for this, and the price of such service will be reasonable. Especially that the professionals will have with themselves everything required for a high-quality work. You may conclude a contract for cleaning with varying frequency – from once a day up to once a month (and less often). A good practice is also to do a deep cleaning once per couple of months or more often.

The benefits of cleaning done by specialists are obvious:

·    it takes minimum time;
·    its quality is much higher than if it were done by yourself;
·    it is carried out by a professionally trained staff, who will use the cleaning agents exactly as intended, so you need not be afraid for a damaged table, computer or any other valuable item you have in the office;
·    the price of premises cleaning is not too high, and you will be able to return to the working rhythm in maximum short terms.

59-clean-desinfect-schoolCleaning and disinfecting are the most important approaches for preventing infectious diseases, such as flu.

Of course, students should be taught at home and reminded at school that it is highly recommended washing hands, covering sneezes and coughs, etc.

But schools together with janitorial services should know how to stop spreading of flu and other diseases through disinfection and cleaning.

First of all, let’s talk about the terms.

Cleaning helps to remove germs, bacteria, dirt and dust from the surfaces. Usually janitors use cleaning detergents or soapy water. Cleaning doesn’t kill germs or bacteria, but removes them from the surfaces.

Disinfection, on the contrary, kills germs and bacteria. For disinfecting, janitors use all kinds of chemicals that kill germs.

So, what should be done at school to stop flu and other infectious diseases?

First of all, there should be special school’s standard procedures for disinfecting and cleaning. There should be a special routine developed by the janitorial services and schools.

Typically, janitors sanitize surfaces and objects that are touched very often at school. This includes desks, countertops, computer mice and keyboards, doorknobs, faucets, etc.

Most schools also choose to disinfect bathrooms on a daily basis, in addition to regular cleaning.

How to clean and disinfect?

It is very important for janitors at school to follow the directions written on cleaning products and disinfectants.

It is very important to use EPA-registered disinfectants for killing germs and bacteria. If your janitors do not have EPA-registered products for disinfection, they can use a fresh chlorine bleach solution.

In order to prepare it, add one tablespoon of bleach to four cups of water. The solution should be applied on surfaces using clean cloth. Leave it on the surface for 3-5 minutes and then rinse with clean water.
