About Commercial Cleaning

Commercial cleaning is associated with the cleaning of offices, shops, showrooms, factories, and other workplaces, and is hugely important to uphold a clean and safe business environment.

Generally, you can hire commercial cleaners to work daily, weekly or periodically, and this will depend on the type of commercial property that needs cleaning and what equipment you need cleaning. However, there are a number of daily chores that should be done in offices, showrooms and shops, and these include dusting desks, emptying waste bins, cleaning toilets, and vacuuming or mopping floors.

Along with these daily tasks, there are also a number of periodic and specialist duties, such as computer, telephone, photocopier, scanner and curtain cleaning, which are discussed in more detail below.

Computer Cleaning

These days there is a growing number of IT equipment cleaning specialists in the UK, who are specifically trained to clean computers, laptops, scanners, printers, and in some cases calculators and photocopiers.

Dirt and dust in your computer is largely responsible for over-heating, data corruption, downtime, and malfunctions, which is why it is important to have your computer equipment cleaned on a regular basis. It is worth having your IT equipment cleaned on a six-monthly basis, although equipment such as keyboards and monitors may need cleaning more frequently, say once a month.

Telephone Cleaning

Telephones and faxes are now vital part of business life, with most office workers having their own telephone at their desk. However, telephones can also cause the spread of germs around an office and that is why you should insist on having telephone hygiene services.

It is worth having your office telephones cleaned on a weekly basis to keep them germ free, while faxes should also be cleaned regularly to stop them from over-heating and breaking down.

Window Cleaning

Whether you have offices at the top of a high-rise tower block or you own a ground floor shop, give your staff and customers a clear bright view by keeping the windows nice and clean. Dirt and grime can soon build up on the outside windows due to rain, dust, debris, etc. But cleaning windows at the top of a tower block or very large windows takes skill and that is why it is best to call in the professionals.

Commercial window cleaners have all the necessary equipment to get the job done efficiently and safely, and they will be able to clean the windows regularly, either weekly, fortnightly or monthly, so your windows are always beautifully clean.

Carpet, Curtain and Upholstery Cleaning

Dirt, dust, food and other stains can easily become trapped in carpets and upholstery, and although it is sometimes not visible when the dirt is there you should have your carpets, curtains and upholstery cleaned regularly, at least once a year, to keep them hygienic.

If you do not have office carpets and upholstery cleaned then germs can spread and the furnishings can deteriorate and need replacing earlier than they would if you kept them clean. These days there are a number of professional cleaning companies that offer carpet, curtain and upholstery cleaning on a regular or periodic basis.
