What is Included in a Professional Deep Clean?
At Spotless Cleaning, we provide a range of cleaning services, and while we do provide daily office cleaning, you may find that from time to time your business premises might need a professional deep clean. This blog outlines what exactly a commercial deep clean should include, and the benefits of having one.
What is a Professional Deep Clean?
Deep cleaning is a cleaning process that removes dust, dirt, bacteria, and grime from every single area of your premises. This includes areas that are hard to reach and rarely touched where dirt has had the opportunity to build up over time.
Deep cleaning requires every single item, whether fixed or mobile, to be moved so that thorough cleaning can take place. Every surface, every corner, and every nook will be reached. This wouldn’t usually happen on a daily or even a weekly basis.
What is Included in a Deep Clean?
Deep cleaning usually includes:
- Hard-to-reach ledges, windows, light fixtures, and above cabinets
- All taps de-scaled
- Remove HVAC vent covers and wash them in the sink with warm soapy water
- Windows inside and out, frames and glass
- Ceiling Fans
- Shampoo carpets and upholstery
- Hard floors scrubbed
- Doors and doorframes thoroughly wiped down and disinfected
- Sanitize rubbish bins, recycling, and wastebaskets
- All furniture moved and every surface cleaned including underneath
- All equipment moved and thoroughly cleaned
- TVs, monitors, and CCTV cameras, including on top
- Cabinets and drawers inside and out
- Behind radiators
- All kitchen appliances were pulled out and cleaned thoroughly
- All walls washed down and disinfected
- Bathrooms thoroughly cleaned including all grouting, toilet base, and behind.
How Often Should You Have a Deep Clean?
The level of hygiene and cleanliness that is needed in a commercial business is dependent on your business operations. Extra measures are often required for an industrial business, healthcare, or the food industry. Specialist cleaning is necessary for these areas because each is regulated by its authorities with its mandatory requirements. But in many commercial organisations like schools, offices, retail, or hospitality, a ‘deep clean’ is a service provided by professional commercial cleaners that fundamentally goes far above and beyond the daily cleaning of welfare facilities and visual areas, or just those areas that are most used or seen.
All cleaning has important hygiene considerations, but daily office cleaning can be more about keeping an area workable, tidy, and clean from a practical standpoint. In commercial premises, keeping a business looking and feeling professional is important. But a deep clean goes far beyond this.
How Often Should an Office Have a Deep Clean?
There aren’t any rules about how frequently a business premise should be deep cleaned. But as a guide, we’d recommend this takes place every quarter. We would organise a deep clean after hours to minimise disruption to your business operations. They’ll need to move all your desks, cupboards, and equipment to clean behind and underneath them and reach areas that aren’t usually accessible.
As a business owner, you need to choose how often your premises needs a deep clean. We can run through a full risk assessment with you to help you make an informed decision. A deep clean is usually during a weekend or during shutdown periods.
What are the Benefits of a Deep Clean?
You’re not just removing the top level of dust and dirt; you’re getting to the very core and the structure of your space. This includes cleaning areas that aren’t as frequently seen. This improves the health and welfare of your staff by eliminating the build-up and spread of bacteria. Reduced sickness improves the productivity of course. In addition, productivity can increase by removing dust mites and allergens that can cause employees to feel drowsy and unproductive. In addition to this, it’s not uncommon for deep cleans to identify emerging health, safety, and hygiene issues that would otherwise go undetected.
