Commercial Cleaning and Your Business Assets
Regular commercial cleaning provides many benefits to your business; from improved employee morale and productivity to enhanced customer perceptions and even increased sales. One benefit of commercial cleaning that is often overlooked is the preservation of your facility’s physical assets.
Let’s face it, your business is made up of a variety of physical assets. carpets, flooring, upholstery, wood furnishings, electronics, and other physical assets all have a healthy price tag and the longer you can make these assets last, the more value you receive from them. Routine professional cleaning can extend the life of these assets while adding value to your business.
CARPET CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Ask any carpet manufacturer and they will tell you that proper care and maintenance is the key to extending the life of your carpets. Without proper care and maintenance, dust, dirt, and other abrasive materials build up and break down the fibers that make up your carpet. This means increased wear and a shorter lifespan.
Daily vacuuming and regular deep cleaning of carpets help to mitigate the build-up of harmful abrasives and extends their useful life. In addition, regular cleanings help to remove allergens and bacteria, providing a healthier environment for your staff and customers.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE OF HARD SURFACES
Hard surfaces like floors and countertops come in a variety of materials, from hardwoods and granite to marble, linoleum, and tile. These assets are extremely expensive to replace and proper care and maintenance are key to making them last.
Over time, dirt and debris will build up in seams between tiles and hardwood slats causing a slow almost imperceptible deterioration of these surfaces. The same is true for expensive marbles and granites which can become marred and scratched without regular cleaning.
Each of these materials has unique maintenance requirements and a qualified commercial cleaning company will know to properly clean and maintain them. Using the wrong chemicals or cleaning techniques can permanently damage your hard surface assets leading to costly repairs or replacement.
UPHOLSTERY AND FURNITURE CARE
Your facility’s furnishings are another physical asset that will benefit from regular cleaning and maintenance. Like floors and hard surfaces, these assets come in a variety of materials, from leather and fabric to wood and glass. Knowing how to clean and maintain these materials is vital to their longevity.
Fabric furnishings require daily vacuuming and regular deep cleaning much like carpets and leather upholstery needs to be properly cleaned and maintained to avoid drying and cracking. e furnishings also will dry and crack without proper care and glass-top desks and conference tables are prone to scratching if not cleaned on a regular basis.
A professional cleaning company will know how to meet the unique requirements of each of these materials and can help ensure that these assets enjoy a long and useful life.
CLEANING ELECTRONICS THE RIGHT WAY
In today’s world, electronic equipment is at the heart of our everyday life. Computer equipment, printers, fax machines, and phones are essential to our daily business operations and they are one of the most valuable physical assets in your facility. Proper care and cleaning of these items can extend their useful life and help eliminate downtime.
Dust is the enemy of all things electronic and by their very nature, electronics attract dust. Without proper maintenance, dust can build up on your electronics and cause them to overheat, leading to expensive repairs, replacement costs, and downtime.
Electronic equipment should be wiped down with a quality microfiber cloth on a daily basis and compressed air should be used to remove dust and debris from hard to reach places like between the keys on a keyboard or hinges on a laptop.
Proper cleaning and maintenance of your business’ physical assets can increase their useful lifespan and help maintain their appearance. The longer these assets are maintained the less often they require repair or replacement and that saves you money in the long run.
