If you are opening a new business, you are probably also moving into a new office space. If that's the case, you are probably already considering the fact that it will need consistent cleaning. In fact, if the office isn't in great shape at the present time, cleaning the office is probably at the top of your to-do list. if you already have a plan in place, you can stop reading now.
On the other hand, if you aren't all set with getting your office cleaned, from arranging for janitorial services to creating a schedule for maintaining a clean office, here are some ideas that might help you.
Arrange For Janitorial Services
If the office is already in pretty good shape, you can probably do the light cleaning yourself and save yourself some money. On the other hand, maybe the office was left in an unsightly way. Or, the office might have been empty for quite some time and things like dust and even spiderwebs might have accumulated.
If heavy cleaning is needed, consider leaving the job to a professional janitorial service. The service will provide workers who have the training and the experience to thoroughly clean your office. The cleaning will include leaving the bathrooms spotless and making sure that your break room is ready to be used.
If your floors need extra attention, that can happen, too. For example, if the office has hardwood floors that are in disrepair, the janitorial service can take care of that. If the bathrooms have a tile floor, even the grout will be cleaned.
Does the office have hard-to-reach windows? The janitors will have the equipment and the products needed to clean those until they shine.
A Cleaning Schedule
Of course, you'll more than likely encourage your workers to help keep the office nice. For example, in the break room, you might have a little sign that encourages your employees to clean up after themselves.
However, to keep the office looking as nice as it did when the janitors finished their initial cleaning job, you might want to set up a cleaning schedule for the janitors to return on a consistent basis. How much you can spend on that service will help you to determine how often the janitors will return. For example, you might want just once-a-week cleaning. Later on, when your business is more established, you might want to increase the cleaning visits to every evening.
