Here at Augie’s Janitorial Services, we’ve been providing commercial cleaning services in Detroit and the surrounding area for over 20 years, so you can say we know a thing or two about making a building shine. While you can count on us to make your facility as clean as possible, we wanted to provide you with a few commercial cleaning tips that we’ve gained over the years for when we’re not around.

If you’re currently in need of a professional cleaning crew, we’re here for you! Simply give us a call today and we’ll be able to set up a time for your free consultation.

Make a Plan

One of the most important things that you’re going to want to do is make a detailed plan and a checklist. When you go around cleaning with no specific direction, it’s more than likely that you’re going to forget to clean a few areas. This won’t be an issue when you’re simply going down the list and checking off the boxes. Another thing we recommend is for you to begin with the more difficult and important tasks. This will ensure that the job gets done in case you get held up during the day.

Have the Proper Cleaning Supplies Available

You’re going to want to make sure that your cleaning supplies are readily available for all of your employees in case they need it. Make sure to designate a specific area that’s conveniently located for everybody. As for the actual cleaning products, at the very least you need to have the basics. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Glass Cleaner
  • All-Purpose Cleaner
  • A Broom and Mop
  • Wipes
  • Garbage Bags
  • Air Duster (for the keyboards)

When you are buying your cleaning solutions, we highly suggest that you look for green cleaning products in order to help our environment.

Lint Rollers

Lint rollers are a must in the office. Not only are they used for getting pet hair and dirt off of our clothes, but they can be used to clean a variety of other things within the office. This includes chairs, small areas of carpet, lampshades, and so much more. You’ll be surprised with how often you use the lint roller when it’s around.

Disinfectant Wipes

As we all know, sickness spreads like wildfire in an office setting. It’s important to take as many precautions as you can to help prevent you and your coworkers from getting sick. In addition to washing your hands during the day, disinfectant wipes are key in preventing germs from spreading. Make sure to wipe down all areas that are touched frequently including door handles, surfaces, computer mice, and more.

White Vinegar

For areas that you have a hard time getting clean, you can use a tip that has been used for generations. White vinegar has a very high acidity level and is great at cleaning dirty surfaces. Mix it with some hot water in a spray bottle and marvel at how well it works.

Don’t Neglect the Floor

In the commercial cleaning industry, we all know that the floors are the fastest to get dirty. While you might not give it much thought, it’s very important not to neglect the floors when cleaning your facility. If you have carpeted flooring, make sure it gets vacuumed daily. For hard surfaces, you’re going to want to broom and mop it. Not only will it make the entire office seem much cleaner, but it will also help prevent germs from spreading as well.
