It’s now more important than ever to know what cleaning service you are getting from your cleaning provider. 

When did your cleaning provider last reach out to you? If you haven’t heard from them a while, give them a ring, pick up the phone, talk to them. 

Make sure you know what service you’re getting. Are they just coming in, emptying the bins and wiping over the desks? Or are they doing the phones? Are they doing the touchpoints? Are they doing the keyboards? What chemicals are they using? Are they going down to the local supermarket to buy things? Or are they using a medical-grade antibacterial disinfectant that’s used for medical theaters? Are the chemicals that they’re using strong enough to kill COVID?

A standard disinfectant isn’t really enough anymore – you should make sure that your cleaning company is using a broad-spectrum disease disinfectant. 

At Sparkle Cleaning, we use a product called Versan. Versan is BS EN 1276 and BS EN 13704 rated. This means that it’s a medical standard, and has undergone European standard testing. We’ve rolled this out to all of our sites, and made sure our clients that they have a bottle of this product under their shelves so that they can clean down between our visits, too. 

Our aim here, during COVID and beyond, is to make sure that we’re keeping you safe, making sure that we’re keeping your family safe, and making sure we all work together to help beat COVID.

We’re now in a situation where we’re not just trying to keep our team safe in the office with us, but it’s also about keeping our team’s family safe, too. 

It’s now more important than ever to make sure that you know exactly what you’re getting from your cleaning provider. 

If you have any doubts, reach out to Sparkle Cleaning. We use the same medical-grade sanitizers and antibacterials as medical theaters. We’ve upgraded all of our PPE for our teams to medical-grade PPE. We’re here to not just keep you safe, but also to keep your offices safe, and keep your family safe. 

As a business, the safety of your staff and customers is paramount, and in these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your offices are cleaned to the highest standard. Our clients can rely on us to communicate with them openly and clearly, so they have knowledge of everything that’s been cleaned and when.

Offices may not seem like the type of place that can quickly get dirty and cluttered, but with lots of people working there and lots of activity, things can get unkept and quickly. This is why many people turn to the services of a professional commercial cleaning company.

The decision to hire one is usually relatively simple, you know when you need one, however, what you may not be quite so sure of is how often you should organise for your office to be cleaned. Essentially it will really depend on your workplace and your needs, however, to help you to plan, we have put together how often it is likely that your office will need to be cleaned.

The most regular tasks

The regularity that you organise an office clean will really depend on the size of your business, the nature of what you do and of course how many employees that you have. However, there are some certain tasks that really need to be done on a twice weekly, if not more frequent basis, if you want to make sure that your office space looks its best.

The first place to start is with the reception area, this is the first part of your business that people will see and there is also a good chance that visitors will be spending some time sat in this space, which means that it needs to look its best. Else, you may find that they form the wrong opinion about what you are like as a company.

Next, you need to think about the toilet. Much like the reception area, this is going to get used on a frequent basis, and a dirty look is never a good thing. Also, a toilet that isn’t cleaned enough is likely to start to smell and this can travel through the entire office in no time at all. Whilst we are thinking about nasty smells, the bins are another part of the office that should be emptied and cleaned out as often as possible.

Last of all, if you have decided to opt for modern office design, with lots of lovely glass partitions, then these are going to need to be wiped down at least every other day. Fingerprints and general dirt and dust are not only attracted to these surfaces, but they show up too, which will end up making the entire space look messy.

What about other less frequent tasks?

So, these are the types of thing that you should organise to be done at least on a twice-weekly basis, if not more often. What about those things that are less regular?

Hoovering the carpet is incredibly important, but for the majority of office spaces, this can be a weekly job, especially if it is teamed with hoovering any fabric chairs at the same time. You may also want to arrange for desks to have a good wipe down every week, as they can soon become dirty if they are left uncleaned for too long. Monthly jobs include cleaning the windows and making sure that any cobwebs are removed.

As you can see, there are a variety of tasks that you need to think about arranging for your office clean, the frequency that you arrange these really depends on just how dirty things get in between the cleans. However, if you choose a Sparkle Cleaning, then in no time at all, they can turn the dirtiest office into a space that everyone is happy to be in.
