You’ve heard of spring cleaning, but did you know that fall cleaning is just as important? Here are our top reasons to do a deep clean when summer comes to a close.
Clean Up Summer Dirt & Pollen
Over the summer, your guests have been tracking in dirt, pollen, and other pollutants from outside. All of that accumulates and leaves your space in need of a good scrub! To get rid of summertime debris, make sure you do a thorough cleaning of all surfaces, including floors, windowsills, walls, and furniture.
Prolong the Life of Floors & Rugs
Having your floors and rugs cleaned regularly helps to maintain them and lengthen their lifespan. Fall is a great time to do this to get your floors and rugs in tip-top shape before winter’s challenges of road salt, snow, and ice start getting tracked in by your staff and guests.
As the weather starts to cool down, rodents, insects, and other pests start looking for warm, dry places that can provide them with food and shelter. Your commercial space is a lot less likely to become infested if you do a thorough fall cleaning to remove any potential food sources or nesting materials.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
As the temperatures drop, you’ll be starting to keep your windows closed and may be turning on the heat in your commercial facility. That means decreased air circulation, dryer air, and the potential for more dust and allergens in the air. Indoor air quality is always worse than outdoor air quality, and in the winter it tends to be particularly poor because of forced-air heating and a lack of fresh air coming in. The best thing you can do to improve the indoor air quality of your space during fall and winter is to have your building thoroughly cleaned to get rid of dust, allergens, and pollutants.
