Window Care is Essential for Your Business

Window Care is Essential for Your Business

Whether you have retail, restaurant, healthcare facility, office, or industrial space, window care is essential for your company’s cleaning program. In an office or healthcare facility, fingerprints, nose prints, smudges, streaks, and dirt make an otherwise clean property appear dirty. For retail businesses and restaurants, this problem is compounded by heavy traffic in and out of the establishment which needs to greet customers and diners positively. Even in industrial environments, dirty windows mean a less than favorable first impression. The Problems Some windows require more cleaning than others. Windows on businesses near busy highways and streets experience grime and dirt accumulation much faster than those in less trafficked areas. Landscaping around your building contributes to dirty windows with dripping sap from trees and grass, mud, dirt, and mulch from landscapers working outside and splattering up onto your windows.  Weather is also a factor in the dirt, grime, and debris that appears on your windows. Wind and rain brings leaves and debris even to the highest floor windows on your building. Windows on the first floor get dirt, road salt, water runoff, and mineral deposits. Those mineral deposits and stains result in that hard to remove spotty white haze, which when left alone can cause your windows to become permanently cloudy in appearance. Even sprinkler systems can cause streaks and spotting on your windows. On top of all that, your buildings architectural design can make your windows dirty. Inset windows seem to collect dirt and grime. Without the proper drainage in bad weather, runoff can cause streaks as wells buildup on sills and windows. The Solutions Regular window cleaning is necessary to keep your facility looking bright, allowing in natural light, and enhancing your company’s image to your customers, clients, colleagues, and employees. Cleaning your windows on a regular basis will prevent buildup, cloudiness, and streaking and keep your windows sparklingly clear. How do you know how often to clean your windows? First and foremost, it is better to clean more often than to wait until you see the dirt and grime building up. Looking at your dirty windows can give the impression to outsiders that you are going out of business or you simply don’t care. Often by the time you get to this point, all the people you hoped to make a good impression on have the wrong impression. If your business is a retail store with lots of customer traffic in and out your doors, your windows need to be cleaned frequently. Competition is fierce in the retail world and you want your customers and potential customers to have a positive first impression by way of your sparkling clean windows. If they walk or drive past and can’t see in your windows and get a glimpse of your products due to all the dirt and grime, they’ll likely make a visit to the competition. Depending on the type of offices you have, your windows won’t need to be cleaned as frequently as retail businesses. Offices in industrial facilities may need to be cleaned more frequently than others, while lobby windows in all facilities should be given extra attention to make a good first impression. Doctor’s offices, clinics, and hospitals should be cleaned frequently to be spotless and let patients know if you take such care with your...

Cleaning Tips as You Move to Your New Space

Cleaning Tips as You Move to Your New Space

When you move into your new space, be it office or retail, one of the first things you should do is clean. If you purchased your commercial space, it may or may not have been cleaned before the previous owner exited. If you are leasing your space, your landlord or the previous tenant should have had it cleaned following the tenant’s departure from the premise. In all likelihood, that cleaning may not have been done up to the standards you expect, or your business requires. With that in mind, here are some cleaning tips to help you before you move into your new commercial space. Prepare Yourself Cleaning your new commercial space is a big job, one that you must prepare for mentally and physically. Get on your work clothes, your comfortable shoes, and have your cleaning supplies at hand: rags, paper towels, trash bags, spray cleaners, brooms, mops, buckets, and even a pressure washer if needed. Mental prep includes reminding yourself the reason you are cleaning – this is the space in which you will welcome your customers, colleagues, and employees and it needs to look its best. Clear the Space As you begin, the first order of business is to get rid of the garbage left by the previous occupant. Anything you see that doesn’t belong, goes in the trash and heads to the dumpster. Sweep, Sweep, Sweep Once the trash has been cleared and dumped, you’ll want to sweep the floors. There is probably an abundance of dust, so begin by sweeping, more than once if necessary. Do not try to mop the floors clean without sweeping first or you will end up with clumping wet dust to remove. Mopping will come later. Clean the Walls If the walls have been freshly painted, you can skip this step. If not, you will need to clean the walls of smudges and sticky spots, before you apply your fresh coats of paint. Clean Windows and Surfaces Clean the windows with window cleaner until they are shiny and welcoming. Clean other surfaces with a powerful all-purpose cleaner to get rid of stains, slime, germs, grime, etc. Now repeat both processes again to be certain they are truly clean. Clean the Floors Now that your sweeping, wall cleaning, window cleaning, and surface scrubbing are complete you are ready to tackle the floors. Depending on the floor surfaces in your commercial space, this may be a multi-step process. A word or warning, this may take a little elbow grease. For hard surface flooring, grab your mop, bucket, and the appropriate cleaner for the surface and begin. If the mop isn’t doing the trick, you’ll want to get down on your hands and knees and apply the aforementioned ‘elbow grease’ to the trouble spots. If your office space has carpeting, you can steam clean them yourself or hire a professional to clean those carpeted surfaces before you move in. Breakrooms and Bathrooms Since your new commercial space probably has both, you’ll want to follow the steps above in each of these spaces. The breakroom, exclusively for the use of your team of employees should be a clean, relaxing, and comfortable respite. In addition, to the floor and other surfaces you will need to clean the refrigerator, scrub the sink, and clean the...

Cleaning and Maintenance Tips for Winter

Cleaning and Maintenance Tips for Winter

During winter, keeping your business clean is very important for several reasons. First, it keeps you, your employees, and your clients or customers, healthy and happy. Second, you want your business space to look clean and cared for, always welcoming to your visitors. Winter cleaning often requires a bit more attention because the climate is changing to some degree no matter where you live and work. Changes in humidity cause foggy films on your mirrors, windows, and even furniture. If your location is in an area that gets snow, ice, or rain in the winter months, you’ll find all manner of debris being tracked into your company by employees, customers, delivery people, etc. The heat is likely turned on all the time and with the windows closed, dust abounds. Now let’s explore some tips and tricks for cleaning and maintenance in the winter. Check out Your Heating System Now is the perfect time to schedule an appointment with your heating and cooling professional to check out and tune up your system. The technician will inspect your system, clean it up, make any needed repairs, and check for carbon-monoxide leakage. Consider adding an annual maintenance contract if you don’t have one already, it gives your business priority service and usually a discount of off every visit. It is time to change your furnace filters, too, a task you should be doing monthly or at least every two months to keep the air in your office clean. Dust Everything Because of the changing humidity, your commercial space will be dustier than normal in winter. Dust every surface from top to bottom regularly to keep dust down. Don’t forget the molding at the tops of your windows, the ceiling fans, your light fixtures, vents, and any items on higher shelves that often get missed. It is also an opportune time to get your business’s air ducts cleaned by a professional technician to reduce dust and allergens in your offices. Deep Clean Your Floors and Carpet Whether you have hardwoods, carpeting, tile, vinyl, or laminate flooring, all floors take a beating in winter. Now is the time to steam clean your carpet and rid it of fungus and bacteria that often find their way into your carpet on damp winter days. Keep your other floor surfaces clean and shining with additional cleanings. It is also a good idea to keep a dry mop handy to keep floors dry when visitors track moisture in – not only will keeping floors dry protect your floors, but it will also keep accidents away. Clean the Windows, Mirrors, and All Glass Surfaces Windows seem to get dirtier in winter, possibly because of colder air outside and warm air inside causing condensation, so keep them clean with regular cleaning. If your business has glass doors, washing them inside and out daily makes your entryway more welcoming to customers. If you have mirrors (and you do, if no where except the restrooms) keep them clean as well. Seal Air Leaks around Windows and Doors Winter is the ideal time to seal any air leaks around windows, doors, even the places wires and pipes enter your business. These air leaks waste energy, costing you money that your company could use elsewhere. These tips should get you well started performing winter...

Customers and clients, who use your restroom facilities, will undoubtedly equate your bathroom’s cleanliness with your business overall, meaning a clean restroom effects your repeat business and your bottom line. Bathrooms, especially in small businesses, often get overlooked. Tiles crack. Mirrors are broken. Paint and finishes get dirty. Floors aren’t mopped to shiny perfection. Soap dispensers fail to get refilled. Paper towels miss the trashcan and hit the floor. Cleaning isn’t up to par and the bathroom often ends up worse than those awful porta-potties at outdoor events! You may even see the bathroom as a nuisance while still being a necessity that your customers expect.

Great food, delicious specials, coupons, and even loyalty cards are used extensively to encourage regulars and newcomers alike to come into your restaurant. But there may be one very important thing you are missing – if your restaurant is dirty, dusty, smelly, and just a mess – even the best culinary school chef and coupons won’t help! The Truth In 2016, a study commissioned by Cintas Corporation and carried out by Harris Poll showed that 97 percent of patrons would not return to a restaurant in which they had experienced difficulties with the facility. The survey participants top five factors were all about the lack of cleanliness in the restaurant and included dirty surfaces (tables, chairs, booths, floors), a bad odor, dirty restrooms (odor included), dirty floors, and poor entryway cleanliness. Keeping Clean Now, as a restauranteur, especially if you are both chef and owner, you are often focused on the back of the house where you prepare delectable dishes for your patrons. The problem is your patrons are focused on the front of the house when they determine whether or not they will grace your establishment a second time. The question is how are you going to keep the front of the house clean and sparking so your facility cleanliness matches the quality of the food you are preparing. Keeping a restaurant clean is not an easy task – from tables to floors to entryways and restrooms, keeping things clean is a full-time job. The Solution Enter your quality commercial cleaning service and problem solved.

A quality professional commercial cleaning team will deliver in a number of areas – from the bathroom to the dining room to the entryway – ensuring a deep clean that your patrons will appreciate. When selecting a commercial cleaning team for your restaurant, find a company that does the basics like vacuuming, dusting, wipe downs, and mopping, of course. But in addition, you want a company who goes beyond to get rid of the deep-seated dirt, grime, and odors. Your commercial cleaning team should have the ability to perform specialized services unique to a restaurant’s needs, including: Window Cleaning (seen from the outside, clean windows make a good first impression for your customers) Pressure Cleaning (outside and in, from patios to sidewalks to awnings) Steam Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning (ideal if your entryway has carpet or your booths and chairs feature upholstered details) Vinyl Tile, Stripping and Waxing (your patrons want clean and shiny and a quality service will deliver keeping floors and other vinyl surfaces looking great) Steam Ceramic Tile and Grout Cleaning (perfect for keeping those bathroom surfaces and restaurant floors in like new condition) While this may sound like something that will cost you a lot of money, consider the money lost if your patrons see your restaurant as dirty and malodorous.

The Qualities of a Great Commercial Cleaning Team

Posted by on Oct 11, 2017 in Tidy Blog | 0 comments

The Qualities of a Great Commercial Cleaning Team

Think about it for a moment. Everywhere you go, you have a preconceived set of expectations you carry with you. Every time you require service at your home, your business, on your vehicle, or with your electronics, there are certain qualities you expect to see in the service technicians as well as specific talents and abilities. For example, when you go into a gas station’s restroom, your expectations may be lower than when you go into the restroom at a five-star restaurant. When you go to the garage for maintenance on your car, you are anticipating a different setting than you would expect at the computer repair store. Everywhere you go, there is a set of expectations, which change depending on the service or product you are seeking. Of course, some expectations do not change. Regardless of whether you are in a five-star restaurant, your local quick market/gas station, at the computer repair shop, or in the garage with your mechanic, there are certain qualities you expect every time. In all likelihood, your expectations include: services to meet your needs, quality and consistency, a trustworthy provider with a solid reputation, a fair price with value, communication, professionalism, and assurance. When it comes to a great commercial cleaning team for your business or organization, you should get all this and more. So, when you are seeking a trusted professional commercial cleaning service, make sure they meet the following criteria and exceed your expectations. Services That Meet Your Needs This not only means they have hours to meet your work environment’s schedule, but also cater to specialized cleaning needs. Most companies offer basic cleaning tasks like vacuuming, dusting, removing trash, replacing liners, and bathroom cleaning, but what if you need more? You want to be sure the commercial cleaning service you engage also offers specialty services including carpet and upholstery cleaning, power washing, window cleaning, stripping and waxing floors, tile cleaning, and more. Quality and Consistency When choosing a commercial cleaning service, you want to know not only that they deliver quality services, but provide those services on a consistent basis – meaning they have a set service plan to meet your specific needs every time. A Solid Reputation Choosing a trustworthy provider with a solid reputation is paramount, after all they are cleaning your offices and other work spaces where you maintain proprietary information. Never hesitate in asking for references and always follow through with speaking to each one. In addition, check internet sources for reputation and ratings by actual clients, noting years in business and experience. A Value-filled Fair Price You want to choose a company that provides value with a fair price – not the cheapest nor the most expensive. The saying, “You get what you pay for” is often very true! A commercial cleaning company should offer your business a free estimate and a pricing proposal based on your needs. Communication As you know, in any business transaction or contractual agreement, communication is key. Choose a company who will be easily available to answer questions and provide needed solutions. Professionalism Professionalism is manifest in appearances – the company itself, the company’s website, the professional cleaning personnel employed, along with the quality service provided. In addition, professionalism means the company is well-equipped for the job you are hiring...

5 Important Things To Focus On For Office Cleaning in Pompano Beach

5 Important Things To Focus On For Office Cleaning in Pompano Beach

Office cleaning in Pompano Beach doesn’t have to be complicated, we make it super simple to have a clean office that employees enjoy working at. Coastal office buildings have unique needs when it comes to full-service cleaning, especially regarding windows. For instance, coastal offices in Pompano Beach tend to have dirtier exterior windows than buildings located more inland simply because high salinity winds produce a buildup of salt on windows. Plus, all those beautiful coastal birds dump a lot of poo on windows and building exteriors. Instead of worrying about how you’re going to keep your office clean, you do your job and let us do ours. Here are some important areas we focus on when cleaning commercial offices in Pompano Beach. #1. Remove Salt from Windows Coastal buildings tend to require more frequent exterior window washing than buildings located further inland. That’s because ocean breezes are laden with salt and these salty winds can travel greater distances than often assumed. Cleaning windows as often as possible is key to preventing a sticky buildup of salt, bird poop, etc. Power washing windows on a regular basis keeps your office looking better and your windows lasting longer. Are you wondering how often your commercial windows need to be power washed? We provide custom window cleaning schedules based upon your needs, granting clean windows year-round without breaking the bank. #2. Regularly Clean High Trafficked Floors No matter what, commercial flooring requires regular cleaning. But, the types of surfaces employees or customers walk across before entering your business impact how dirty floors get and how often they require cleaning. Regular cleaning provides a nice appearance but it also ensures flooring surfaces pass the test of time. High traffic areas are crucial because they get used a lot, plus a lot of people see (and judge) them. Office hallways and entryways should be cleaned on a regular basis and deep cleaned as frequently as once a month. Reception areas, sales floors and anywhere you entertain potential clients should be in tip-top shape to present a good reputation. The hardest thing about cleaning commercial floors is stopping the regular flow of traffic long enough to clean surfaces. That’s why we offer after-hours cleaning; we can get the job done after everyone goes home.  #3. Bathrooms Nasty or unclean bathrooms can lead to poor employee morale. After all, no one wants to go to the restaurant across the street to use the bathroom because the one at work is so far gone. Unmaintained bathrooms can also lead to more employee sick days, which is bad for overall productivity. Long story short, commercial bathrooms are one of the most important areas to clean on a regular basis. Even if a bathroom looks clean, that doesn’t necessarily mean it is clean. Some of the most overlooked germy surfaces in the bathroom include faucets, door handles, and soap dispensers. #4. Break Rooms Sure, potential clients don’t typically enter the break room but that doesn’t mean you should ignore it. Your employees deserve a clean and comfy place to kick back, relax and enjoy some food before returning to work. If the break room is dirty, the fridge smells, or there are stains on every table, no one is going to want to use the breakroom. #5. Driveways, Parking...
