Spring Is Here
Warm weather is on its way, and it’s time for facility managers and building owners to review their cleaning programs and planning for spring. Daily cleaning tasks and deep cleaning initiatives go a long way toward preparing a facility for a new season for occupants and visitors.
Here is a list of 5 tips for facility managers and building owners to review while planning for the annual seasonal clean up!
Freshen up facility appearance: Take time this spring to focus on small details. Whether bulbs and ballasts need to be replaced, addressing the small issues will improve to the overall appearance and operations of the facility. Partner with a vendor that is capable for handling these common handyman tasks to help maintain the building.
Focus on flooring: Winter weather results in excessive wear and tear and a dulling of the appearance of flooring. Investing in a deep cleaning service for your tile and carpeting will go along way in the appearance of your facility. If you hold out to long on your flooring it will end up in a more expensive outcome. It will help delay replacement costs.
Refresh restrooms: Daily cleaning always helps facilities stay expectable for customers. Springtime is a great time of year to do a deep clean from top to bottom. Address dirty restrooms by implementing a deep cleaning service for restrooms that effectively removes built-up soils by sanitizing surfaces and fixtures using a high-pressure, chemical injection washer.
Clean air conditioning units: Most air conditioning units are not used through the winter. To ensure the best indoor air quality, facility managers should complete a comprehensive air conditioning coil cleaning service. Air conditioning units that are not properly cleaned can lead to lingering odors, allergies, unit failure and high-energy bills. Completing regular air conditioning coil cleaning removes dirt, grime, and built-up sludge from the air conditioning units to improve indoor air quality, and lower energy bills.
Go green: 84% of U.S. adults prefer to do business with companies that use environmentally friendly products and practices. Start out your spring green by selecting products that meet the requirements for the EPA’s Design for the Environment Program.
