Don’t Forget The Doors
There are a great many things to consider when evaluating your commercial cleaning company. Beyond the obvious areas like floors and restrooms, it is important to ensure that your cleaning services company also cleans your doors. Doors are some of the most touched items in your commercial space and as such, they often harbor bacteria and viruses that can easily be transmitted to your clients and staff. Whether you outsource your cleaning to a commercial janitorial service or perform these duties in-house, cleaning and disinfecting your doors should be a priority.
While the entranceway doors are the most visible and often the most used, every door in your facility needs to be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis. Entrance doors, restroom doors, office, and breakroom doors all need to be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. For glass doors, a quality glass cleaner should do the trick on the glass surfaces. A microfiber cloth sprayed with a disinfectant cleaner should be used on door handles as these are high-touch items. For wood and panel doors, a quality disinfectant spray and a microfiber cloth will do the trick. Be sure to clean the entire door paying particular attention to the areas most often touched and do not forget the top edge as this is a gathering place for dirt and dust.
Doorknobs and handles are obviously of particular concern as these are the most touched part of any door and a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. Pay particular attention to these areas and use a high-quality anti-bacterial or disinfectant spray and clean knobs and handles thoroughly.
