Office Maintenance Tips/FAQs

We at Superior Quality Cleaning, know a thing or two about how to best maintain your office! Below are a few articles with our suggestions on the absolute best ways to care for your office.

  • How Can I Save Money on my Cleaning Service  Without Sacrificing the Cleanliness of the Office?

    Oftentimes, the first thing to change when trying to cut down on the budget is the frequency of service. Then everyone starts complaining about how the bathrooms look! It's hard to win when managing a cleaning budget for your office, here's what we've learned over the years that has helped others!

     

    1 - Does the carpet that doesn't have much traffic need to be vacuumed 5 times a week? Probably not, but those bathrooms probably DO need to be cleaned every time. You can cut back on some of the services that don't need to be done each time. There are some offices that will only have everything vacuumed & dusted and recycling removed once per week, while the bathrooms, break room and garbage are cared for every time.

     

    2 - Up here in Central Wisconsin, our flooring needs a lot more care in the winter with all the slush and salt we bring in, whereas we need more dusting in the spring and fall when cobwebs accumulate very quickly. Change up your service based on what you really need. For example, maybe you need the floors swept and mopped 3 times per week in the winter/spring months and only once per week in the summer/fall months. This can reduce costs in the yearly budget overall.

     

    3 - The cost for janitorial office cleaning is primarily in the labor, so how long it takes to clean your office is what determines how much your fee is. Dusting desks often takes up a bigger chunk of time than most people would think. If you have an organization that is open to a bit more progressive approach, have each person care for their own space. This takes a touch of planning as you'll need to have a few supplies available for them (we can help you with this!) but this can yield some amazing results! If each person spends 10 or so minutes on their own area each week (in between other tasks when they might've been idle otherwise) you'll not only save money but because employees will take more pride in their own space, you're likely to have an even cleaner office. Due to our own procedures, we do not move papers or valuables on desks to clean, so when a person cleans their own desk, they can make sure everything is cleaned perfectly.

     

    We'd love to do a walk-through at your place of business so we can give you personalized information on the best way to care for your office's janitorial needs. Give us a call!

  • How Can I Maintain My Carpeting?

    The best way to care for your carpeting is to make sure it is vacuumed and professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Depending on how much traffic your office sees, you may need it to be cleaned fairly often. This extends the life of your carpet but also helps it to vacuum up better.

     

    Another way is to ensure your employees are on board for taking care of your office. The more they leave on the floor that is bad for it, the worse it is. For example, if they are generous with the staples, these dig into the carpet fibers and take time to remove. Staples are also bad for vacuums, so encouraging your employees to clean up after themselves helps your carpet and equipment.

     

    If a spill does occur, clean it up quickly! Stains set in quick, so responding to a spill with a clean white cloth and water right away can do wonders. Keeping some professional spot cleaner, can help treat spots right away. If it looks too daunting to care for by yourself, call in your carpet cleaning professionals right away and we can help you out!

  • How Can I Maintain My VCT Flooring?

    Regular cleaning is the number one way to care for your VCT flooring! It is so much easier (and less costly) to maintain a floor, than it is to bring one back from the dead, so to speak. Depending on the age of your floors, the amount of traffic they receive and what kind of traffic that is (ie. foot traffic, fork lifts, rolling carts, etc.) will determine how frequently your floors should be buffed, scrubbed or waxed. We'd be happy to look at it and share our expert opinion though!

  • What Frequency of Janitor Cleaning is Best For My Office?

    This really is a hard one, as every office is so different! Really what this comes down to is how many hours your office is open, the type of office and the amount of employees working there.

     

    We have small (tiny, even) offices that have one person full time and another person occasionally. They can easily get by with getting cleaned once a week or every other week, though the employees may need to remove the trash in between our visits.

     

    A very large office, with many employees, may need to be cleaned 3 to 5 days per week to keep up with the bathrooms and garbages.

     

    Also, a retail or sales type location may desire to be cleaned more often as their clients will be seeing it, but an office where no clients or customers visit it, may be able to get away with a lower frequency.

     

    Without seeing your personal office, it's really hard to give an exact answer, but we're always happy to come and take a look at your office, with no obligation to hire us, and share our expert opinion with you.
