In some ways, winter makes it easier to keep your commercial property clean. After all, doors and windows are kept closed, and there’s less lawn debris being tracked in. Yet, your building being essentially sealed during the winter months also presents some new cleaning challenges.
Although everyone thinks of spring for deep cleaning, you don’t really have to wait. You can give your commercial property the winter cleaning it deserves now.
Maintenance Service Systems, Inc. (MSSI) are the commercial cleaning experts. We provide routine cleaning services to maintain a hygienic and aesthetically pleasing professional environment. We also provide the heavy-duty deep cleaning surfaces needed to restore a commercial property that’s been neglected too long. To avoid major spring cleaning expenses, we suggest incorporating these practices into your winter cleaning routine:
You can minimize the chalky residue and flooring damage by removing excess salt and ice melt.
When all ice and slush has melted and re-freezing is unlikely, then use a stiff-bristled push-broom to sweep away remaining crystals. If the weather is going to be above 40° long enough for water to completely dry (at least two hours, depending on the size of the area you are cleaning), you may also consider hosing off your sidewalks.
Because floor stripping also entails applying wax and polish, your floors are protected against salt/ice melt that may be needed for late winter weather events.
MSSI clients do not have to perform any of these winter cleaning jobs. Most of these tasks are already part of your contracted commercial cleaning services, and your account manager has likely already developed a schedule for non-routine tasks like deep floor cleaning.
For business owners or commercial property managers who would like to delegate these tasks, contact MSSI. We customize commercial cleaning services to meet your needs.
