Does your building or office have time off to spend with loved ones over the holidays?
Most businesses and buildings have some degree of shutdown – whether it’s a complete closure or working with a skeleton crew – during this time. That means it’s the perfect time to have those more extensive cleaning tasks done!
Here are the top two cleaning jobs that are ideal for this time of year:
If you want shiny, attractive hard flooring in your building, regular floor refinishing is a must.
Floor stripping and refinishing is an essential component of a proper floor maintenance plan. It gets rid of stains, old wax, and stubborn soiling that can’t be swept or mopped away.
However, floor refinishing can mean closing a whole floor or area of the building while the cleaners do their work – unless the building occupants are already out of the building for the holidays!
Your carpets are another area of your building that need to be frequently cleaned with care. This is particularly vital during the winter months, when snow, slush, and salt from outdoors are ground into the carpet fibers by pedestrian feet.
Remember: Carpets conceal their soiling for a long time before you can see any marks. By the time the carpets start to look grimy and unpleasant, they’ve had far too much time to absorb the dirt.
Although every carpet cleaning method needs to be used appropriately through the winter, we highly recommend the hot water extraction method over the holiday break. It’s the method that offers the deepest clean, removing even the most stubborn, deeply penetrated slush and dirt.
This, too, is great maintenance item to check off your list over the holiday season while building occupants are off-premise.
