All businesses require different types of cleaning. Office cleaning for example will involve tidying, clearing, cleaning work surfaces and equipment etc including vacuuming carpets. Whereas retail and commercial cleaning will concentrate more on keeping the premises looking their best and looking professional for customers and clients. A professional deep clean is a much more intense clean focusing more on hygiene than regular cleaning, covering hard to reach areas that are often not cleaned in the regular cleaning process.
What is a professional deep clean
A professional deep clean is different from a regular clean as there will be more focus on hygiene. There is less tidying and more deep cleaning, concentrating on removing dirt, dust and bacteria. The hard to reach areas that are missed in a general clean will be cleaned of dirt and dust. The areas of the premises that aren’t used as frequently will have a thorough clean. Tops of cabinets, under desks and sofas will be deep cleaned and behind any furniture which usually gather dust will have a thorough clean. Furniture will be pulled out to ensure every area is thoroughly clear of dust and dirt.
The goal of a professional deep clean
To clean all areas including unseen areas- Pulling out furniture to ensure all the areas that aren’t usually seen or cleaned are cleaned of all dirt, dust and bacteria. Ensure all areas are bacteria free and not just surface areas.
Create a healthy environment- Remove all bacteria, dirt and dust which will in turn improve the health of your staff, customers and clients.
Improve productivity- By improving the health of your staff you will improve productivity. If staff are in good health you will have less staff absence therefore more productivity. If staff are not in the best health due to dust mites and allergens, even if they do come into work they will not be as productive. Having a clean hygienic work place will increase the work produces by staff.
