When it comes to office spaces, deep cleaning is often overlooked. However, just as spring cleaning your home is important, a deep clean of your premises should be prioritised at least once a month. There are many reasons for this, here are two of the most crucial,

– The spread of COVID-19 forces people to take additional precaution when visiting offices, but germs stay on surfaces for at least 12 hours. Deep cleaning can minimize it.

– Office bound employees share spaces with colleagues, increasing the potential to spread germs and dust.

What does deep cleaning entail?

Deep cleaning is a thorough cleaning of your premises, ensuring that all surfaces are sanitised. This includes hidden surfaces that are tough to reach, ceilings, plug points and light fixtures. The process includes disinfection, dusting, wiping, vacuuming and power hosing if necessary.

How often should your premises be deep cleaned?

The frequency of conducting a deep clean is based on the type of industry you operate in. Some businesses require frequent deep cleaning, and the Servest team bases the frequency using the following criteria,

1. Foot traffic

The number of employees and visitors at your premises is an important factor when deciding the frequency of deep cleans. The more people that visit your premises, the higher the need for a deep clean.

2. Type of industry

Small to medium businesses require less frequent deep cleans. However, the industry plays a large role in deciding this. If a business is in the medical or manufacturing industry, they will require deep cleaning more often than a corporate business.

3. Seasonal deep cleaning

Change of seasons also plays a huge role in deep cleaning. Based on seasonal ailments such as the common cold or its more serious counterpart, the flu, offices need to be deep cleaned to prevent the spread of germs. This not only ensures a clean working environment, but also healthier staff that take fewer sick days.
