Ceiling Tile and Vent Cleaning

Ceiling Tile and Vent Cleaning

Ceiling tiles and vents in your workplace may be among the most overlooked when it comes to cleaning. Keeping ceiling tiles and vents properly cleaned not only makes your business cleaner but also safer. Think about it the next time you see dust, debris, or dirt floating around your office from the less than clean HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) vents or when something unidentified comes floating down from the ceiling and lands on your desk. If you can’t remember the last time your ceiling tiles and HVAC vents were cleaned, the time is now to get the job done right. HVAC Concerns and Cleaning Studies have shown a single ounce of dust is home to 40,000 or so dust mites. Which means depending on the size of your workplace environment, there are billions of dust mites making their home in the building. Even if your workplace is an office and not an industrial facility, normal office activities generate contaminants like dust, dander, debris, and chemicals, not including the pollen and other pollutants brought in by employees and customers. As these pollutants are circulated daily by your HVAC system, vents collect the build-up, and the whole process can result in issues – allergies, asthma, respiratory problems – for those doing business within. In addition to lost productivity when employees are sick, dirty vents reduce energy efficiency and cost your business even more. You can easily determine if your vents need cleaning by looking. If your vents need cleaning, you’ll see debris, dust, and more collecting on the intake/outtake vents in your workplace. Wipe your finger across the panel and a take examine the particles being circulated daily in your space. Your vents need to be cleaned, by a professional, at least annually, and depending on your business, possibly more often. Professional cleaning services will also replace filters and notify you if any issues are noted.  Your HVAC duct systems should be professionally cleaned every three to five years, again depending on the nature of your business. Ceiling Tile Concerns and Cleaning While walls and floors get all the attention when it comes to cleaning, the ceiling is equally important. Dirty, stained, and dust coated ceiling tiles not only detract from your space’s aesthetics, but also contribute to illness among your employees. Keeping ceiling tiles clean means healthier air quality, better sound barriers, and fire protection, plus clean ceiling tiles last longer. Ceiling tiles should be professionally cleaned and maintained every two to five years. The professionals will cover your furnishings and equipment before the cleaning begins. First the tiles will be brushed and vacuumed, followed by the safe, application of specialized enzymatic cleaners. The professionals can also cover minor stains with specialty products that won’t affect your ceiling tile’s performance and save you the cost of having to replace tiles. After a professional cleaning, not only will your office look better, your tiles will be more functional, and the air within your office will be more healthful. Ceiling Tiles and HVAC Systems Working in Harmony Your ceiling tiles and HVAC system should work together keeping your office spaces safe and healthy for your employees and customers. HVAC systems trap dust and other contaminants, and they often generate static electricity which causes circulating dust and pollutants to adhere to...

Commercial Cleaning Services – The Essentials of Clean

Commercial Cleaning Services – The Essentials of Clean

Cleaning your business is quite different from cleaning your home. Workplace or commercial cleaning includes much more than simple household cleaning like vacuuming, dusting, mopping, because workplace cleaning includes the commercial cleaning of offices of all kinds, warehouses, distribution centers, factories, schools, hospitals, and manufacturing facilities. Commercial cleaning services not only provide the essentials of clean, but also help prevent workplace injuries and accidents, can enhance the business environment, and improve your brand image. Proper commercial cleaning also keeps your business or facility in compliance with regulatory organizations and government entities. In addition to the usual cleaning, vacuuming, dusting, and mopping, commercial cleaning services deliver these crucial essentials of clean to your business. Building and Floor Maintenance In addition to the usual sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming, commercial cleaning services also provide floor and other building surface maintenance. To keep your facility safe and looking good, walls and floors should be free from oil, grease, spills, and other debris to eliminate hazards and prevent accidents and injuries from occurring. Warning sign placement is key to avoiding problems until the spills are cleared away effectively. In addition, an exceptional commercial cleaning service should also note issues which come to light during cleaning and may be in need of repair, including flooring, plumbing, electrical, doors, windows, and other areas. Shining the Light on Fixtures Lighting is key to safety, productivity, and aesthetics in any business environment. Light fixtures must be cleaned routinely to avoid dust and debris buildup which effects the functionality of lighting and decreases light intensity in the space. Your professional cleaning team should ensure your lighting is cleaned regularly, because it is crucial to workforce performance whether in an office setting, a school classroom, or manufacturing facility. Tools and Equipment In a commercial or industrial environment, tools and equipment must be clean and functioning properly. Properly cleaned tools and equipment can be easily maintained and prevent accidents from occurring. A quality commercial cleaning team will see that tools, equipment, and machinery are cleaned and stored properly as needed. Often tools, equipment, and machinery cleaning are an essential part of a company’s custom cleaning contract. Declutter Aisles, Stairways, Offices Commercial cleaning services often include advising businesses on areas which need additional cleaning services – like cluttered aisles, stairways, and office spaces. Clutter breeds dust and debris and can also cause trip and fall accidents in the workplace. Aisles, stairways, and office spaces should be clutter free with pathways through the company unobstructed for safety and appearance. Cluttered spaces can send the wrong message to customers and employees who may see it as a sign of disorganization and lack of care. Storage Spaces Like clutter in office spaces, stairways, and aisles, storage spaces should also be kept clean and free from clutter so that employees can find what they need when they need it. An unkempt storage space attracts dust and debris and can cause accidents when items within are stored improperly.  Waste Management Disposing of trash and waste materials is part of a commercial cleaning business’ services. Proper waste management includes appropriate disposal of materials as required by regulatory organizations and local ordinances. Tidy Team Cleaning Services delivers exceptional commercial cleaning services including janitorial and housekeeping as well as floor stripping and waxing, window cleaning, carpet cleaning, and pressure washing...

Let’s face it clean carpets keep the office spaces fresh and sanitized, creating a welcoming atmosphere for customers and a healthy workplace for employees. Here’s why commercial cleaning is so important and what you should expect when you have it done. Why Commercial Carpet Cleaning is Important Commercial carpet cleaning is more important than you think. Though appearance is a significant reason to have your business’s carpets cleaned, here a few more reasons for getting the job done. Improved Air Quality – While you may think your carpet looks pretty good considering the traffic in your space, the truth is odors, dirt, and bacteria are buried deep in your carpet. Each of these pollutants affect the air quality in your office. Commercial carpet cleaning is an investment in your customers’ and your employees’ health. Increased Business – Your customers and clients are influenced by the first impression you make when they visit your business. Having your carpets professionally cleaned ensures not only a deep clean, but also helps maintain your carpet’s appearance and makes it long wearing. A clean, odor free, polished environment will help your business attract more customers and help your business succeed. Don’t let a first impression, marred by dirty carpet, be your last impression. Enhanced Productivity – Your employees spend a lot of hours at your business, so making their environment comfortable, fresh, and clean with commercial carpet cleaning means they will be more productive. Plus, as an added bonus, you’ll have a lower number of call outs for sickness because of dust, bacteria, and other contaminants hiding in your carpet. Get your carpets cleaned for a germ-free environment that will enhance your team members productivity. Longer Lasting Carpets – Commercial carpet cleaning specialists will ensure your carpets are cleaned properly with the best equipment and cleaners, designed to help our carpet look great and last longer. Commercial Carpet Cleaner’s Checklist When your commercial carpet cleaning team arrives to clean your carpets, the process should begin with pre-vacuuming, followed by pre-treatment. These two simple steps prepare your carpet for the best possible clean. Pre-vacuuming is performed with a commercial grade vacuum designed to remove dust, dirt, and hair before carpet cleaning extraction starts. After vacuuming, a highly concentrated cleaner is applied to pretreat stains and breakdown embedded dirt, dust, and other particles. Next, comes dirt extraction, followed by deodorization. The extraction process utilizes a steam cleaning system which removes embedded dirt, cleaning the carpet fibers thoroughly. A deodorizing application comes next to remove odors and ensure a great smelling carpet. Finally, a neutralizer is applied to prevent future dirt accumulation and help your office’s carpet...

Clean and Disinfect Though you and your staff may be fairly neat and tidy, dust, crumbs, dirt, and fingerprints still build-up on and around office surfaces. Keeping disinfecting wipes available for your employees will help keep desks, countertops, keyboards, telephones, and other surfaces, clean and germ free. Doing so will also encourage your staff to keep their office spaces organized and thus more productive. Organize Your Office Spaces Seeing that each of your employees’ office spaces are well-organized will help create an organized work environment.

Each of your team members should have space for his or her computer, an area for research, storage for supplies, and filing space – providing for an efficient use of office space. In organizing office spaces, remind employees to only keep what they need atop their desk, putting away extra pens, papers, files, etc. Keeping each desktop free of clutter, with only monitor and keyboard, a pen on two, telephone, lamp, and a family photo, will mean a cleaner workspace and greater productivity. Supplies, paperwork, and other items should be kept in the desks or designated areas. If necessary, employees can keep a basket or filing box for short-term storage items, like files they are working on during the week. Other personal items (purses, gym bags, shoes) should have cabinet space where they can be put away during the work day and not cluttering the office work areas. Paper, Paper, Paper While the digital age promised a paperless office, today, everyone realized it was a false promise. Most offices are buried in paperwork.

With labels like to read, to do, to file, ongoing, complete, needs attention, etc., your staff will know where everything is and be able to work efficiently without endless stacks of files and paperwork cluttering their desks. In addition, and while on the subject of paperwork, set guidelines on when file cabinets need to be cleared and old information shredded.

Spring is a Great Time for Pressure Cleaning

No matter the size of your business’s property, from the skyscraper to warehouse to manufacturing facility to retail store to corner office, your company’s building needs cleaning and refreshing at least annually. Sunlight, pounding rain, wind, water, birds, mildew, dirt, sand, and  other pollutants effect the appearance of the exterior of your building and create the need for pressure cleaning to keep your property looking its best. A clean exterior not only welcomes your clients, colleagues, and customers, but also projects your professionalism and attention to detail, allowing you to attract even more clientele. Building facades are made from a variety of materials – brick, granite, concrete, and more, plus your roof, windows, and sidewalks – all of which can be cleaned with pressure washing. The process is best done by a professional cleaning team who know exactly how to treat your building’s exterior without causing any damage while restoring your business’s appearance. The Benefits of Pressure Washing for Your Business Custom, professional pressure washing will rid your property’s exterior of dirt, grime, stains, and streaks improving the building’s curb appeal. Having your property pressure washed by a team of professionals can increase the value of your structure by improving its appearance. Your clients, colleagues, and employees will enjoy coming to a clean, well-kept building and potential clients and employees will appreciate the professionalism displayed. Pressure washing can also prevent repairs from damage caused by mold and algae growth, bird droppings, and the buildup of dirt and other pollutants. If left unwashed, many building materials will begin to succumb to damage and deterioration. Having your exteriors, including your roof, gutters, and windows regularly pressure cleaned can reduce the risk of property damage over time. Cleaning other exterior spaces like walkways, sidewalks, and public parking spaces can also keep your property looking great. Pressure washing these components as well as loading areas, awnings, and even dumpster areas will remove unsightly stains and grime while improving your customers and your employees’ experience. Pressure washing can also enhance clients and employees’ experiences with your business by protecting against injury and providing health benefits. The removal of pollutants, pollen, dirt, mildew, algae, and dust through pressure washing can help customers and employees avoid allergies, asthma attacks, and other diseases. Professional pressure cleaning can also work toward preventing accidents like slips and falls on caused by mold, grease, and other slippery substances on sidewalks, at entrances, and in parking areas. How to Hire the Professionals You Need for Pressure Cleaning Professional pressure cleaning services have the ultra-high powered pressure washers which are needed to target the grime, dirt, and pollutants common to building exteriors, sidewalks, walkways, parking lots and more and get them clean and fresh. These professionals also utilize safe cleaning solutions which won’t harm plants, soil, or leave behind unwanted residues on exterior surfaces.  For extra tough stains, professional cleaners utilize surface spinners for flat surfaces, hot water at low pressure on wood surfaces, and high pressure cold water to get rid of built up debris.

The Benefits of Professional Carpet Cleaning

Your carpets are the most highly traffic areas of your office, exposed to the wear and tear of your employees and customers who unintentionally track dirt and grime in each and every day. What you may not realize is that keeping your carpets clean and maintained will not only result in an improved aesthetic appearance but also increase the length of wear of your carpet. In a busy office, the carpets should be professionally cleaned a minimum of twice per year and more often if needed. In addition to professional cleanings, your carpets should be vacuumed regularly by your commercial cleaning service. Let’s explore all the benefits of professional carpet cleaning. Professional Carpet Cleaning Delivers a Clean, Healthy Environment for Everyone Professional carpet cleaning does double duty in promoting a healthy environment for you, your staff, and your customers. First, carpet cleaning removes dust and other allergens which have gathered and become trapped in your business’ carpets. These allergens cause allergic reactions, respiratory problems, and other health issues which carpet cleaning professionals destroy, leaving your carpets fully sanitized. Second, professional cleaning completely removes dirt and bacteria which causes odors in your workplace, as well as illnesses and allergies among your employees and customers. All this debris will continue to gather and become embedded until a professional cleaning occurs. Commercial Carpet Cleaning Extends the Life of Your Carpet The dirt, debris, grime, dust, and allergens accumulate in your carpet and become embedded in its fibers. The result is all this debris damages the carpet fibers over time. Removing this build up means the longevity of your carpet is improved and further build up is prevented. A professional carpet cleaner utilizes hot water to deep clean the fibers and sanitize the carpet. Professional Carpet Cleaning  Eradicates Stains and Diminishes Traffic Lanes A professional carpet cleaner can remove even the toughest stains – mud, ink, wine, coffee, – using the same hot water extraction method which destroys bacteria and allergens. Once removed, your business no longer need be embarrassed by stains when customers visit. In addition, highly trafficked areas like hallways and reception areas often show more wear, known as traffic lanes, than other areas in your office. Professional carpet cleaning diminish traffic lanes, removing the dirt, restoring the fibers, and increasing the longevity of your carpets. Commercial Carpet Cleaning Improves the Appearance of Your Office While you may not realize it, your business’ carpet works toward making a good first impression to visitors. A dirty carpet makes your carpet look old and outdated making a poor impression on customers and colleagues. Having your carpets professional cleaned on a regular basis helps you and your business make a positive impression.

New Year – A Fresh Space

Posted by on Feb 9, 2019 in Tidy Blog | 0 comments

New Year – A Fresh Space

A new year signals the time for new beginnings and what better way to start than with a fresh space for your company. While you might dream of moving your office and staff to a brand new office space, most of the time a more practical solution is a fresh clean workplace at your current location.  Having a clean office delivers a plethora of benefits for your business which should put hiring a professional cleaning service at the top of your New Years’ resolution list for your company. Here’s why a fresh, clean space is so important to your company’s success. Make a Great First Impression When clients walk into your business, what do they see? Is it clean and organized or untidy and disheveled? The first impression potential clients get when they walk through the door sets the tone and often determines whether they become a valuable repeat client for your company. A clean and organized space gives the impression that your company is reliable and trustworthy before even a word is spoken. It says you’ll give them the same attention should they become your client or customer, the attention they deserve. Not only, does a clean office give a good impression to potential customers but also to prospective employees. Keeping a clean, tidy office indicates to would-be employees you run a professional company and can win the best employees for your business. Increase Productivity Remember those great employees you earned by having a clean, organized office? You can further increase their productivity by keeping your office that way all the time. Plus, a clean work space reduces employee stress and improves everyone’s mental health, promoting happiness, contentment, and focus. And the result is greater productivity and less time wasted. On top of that, having a clean office actually encourages sales and contracts for your business. A pristine space invites customers in and welcomes them, increasing their interest in what you and your team have to offer. The result – they become satisfied customers who stay with you and your company for the long haul, as well as spread the word about your business – the best form of advertising. Reduce Sick Days A clean working environment helps you and your employees stay healthy. Keeping a clean space prevents the spread of germs and bacteria, and results in less sick days. By disinfecting shared spaces regularly, you can help control illnesses contracted by your employees. A professionally cleaned office also means less dust and reduces sinus infections, allergy flare ups, and asthma which can keep employees home. When employees are out sick, your business suffers as the workload increases and fewer clients can be served. Save Time This one may sound a little strange, but it’s true – a clean fresh office space saves you time. How? Well, first of all, many employers believe they can get by cleaning the office themselves or having their employees pitch in to get the job done. This creates stress for you and your staff, whose focus will be divided. Rather than focusing on essential tasks to grow your business, valuable time is wasted cleaning. With a professional cleaning service, time is saved, and you and your team members can focus on the important work of building your company and achieving business...

Getting Your Office Ready for Flu Season

Posted by on Jan 12, 2019 in Tidy Blog | 0 comments

Getting Your Office Ready for Flu Season

Flu season is here once again! And like other business, you want to get your office ready. Of course, being ready means keeping your team healthy and productive throughout the season. As the season progresses, it is hard to avoid team members arriving at the office sneezing, sniffing, coughing, and more. And with those conditions, the number of ill employees can double or triple, reducing productivity and costing loss revenue. By being proactive and taking action now, you can keep your office humming along productively through flu season and all year long. A good start is installing hand sanitizers if you don’t already have them and encouraging your team members to get their flu shots early. What you may not have thought about is how hiring a professional cleaning service can rid your office of germs on a regular basis throughout the year before anyone falls ill. Preparing a Prevention Plan Starting now means you can plan ahead and protect your team members from the flu. The ideal place to begin is with “high touch areas” – desks, phones, keyboards, door knobs, doors, bathrooms, sinks, counter and surfaces in break rooms. Germs can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours infecting those who come in contact with the surface. Standard cleaning products can’t kill the worst of germs and store bought disinfectants only rid your office of the mildest bacteria.  A professional commercial cleaning team will see that these areas are sanitized regularly with premium disinfectants to prevent the spread of the flu and other germs and bacteria in your office. Performing Routine Cleaning On top of developing a prevention plan and sanitizing touch points with disinfectants, a commercial cleaning service will clean your office according to your specifications. A clean office is important to the health and wellness of your team and a professional service will deliver the highest quality cleaning. With a professional service, you choose the time that is best for you, day or night, and a licensed, bonded, insured cleaning staff will clean your offices thoroughly – removing trash, dusting, and vacuuming to get rid of dirt, grim, dust, allergens, and infectious germs. Plus, a professional cleaning service can steam your carpet or upholstery, clean ceramic tile and grout, strip and wax your vinyl floors, pressure clean exteriors, clean windows, and other needed services.   Ensuring Safe and Effective Use of Cleaning and Disinfectants A professional cleaning service will see that all cleaning and disinfectants are handled safely and effectively. These products, if not handled appropriately, can be dangerous. Professionals know how to use the products to kill germs, bacteria, and viruses without causing damage to property or danger to staff members. In addition, professional cleaning services have all the needed equipment to get the job right every time. Commercial cleaning services like the team at Tidy Team Cleaning Services offer customized packages to meet every clients’ specific needs.
