How often you should have commercial cleaning services performed depends on a number of factors. Here is what to consider when planning your cleaning schedule.
The Size of Your Business
Think about the size of your business before choosing how frequently it should be cleaned. This includes the physical space and how many staff members/guests you have. If you have a big space that many people use every day, you will need more frequent cleaning than a smaller space where just a few people work each day.
The Type of Business You Run
Some businesses are messier than others. While every commercial space requires regular cleaning, an office generally requires less frequent cleaning than a manufacturing facility. Consider what type of business you run and where the mess comes from. Do you have a daily mess caused by everyday workings of your business, or does the mess build up slowly? If the work you do inherently creates a mess, such as manufacturing a product that produces debris in the process, you will need cleaners more often than an office.
The Frequency of Cleaning Needed for Different Areas
Think about how many areas in your commercial space need daily cleaning. Are you or your team willing to take on cleaning these spaces sometimes, or do you want to fully rely on a cleaning service to clean these areas? Keep in mind that professional cleaners have the expertise and equipment needed to thoroughly clean and sanitize the areas without missing anything. Consider the frequency of cleaning needed for each area in your space, and build your commercial cleaning schedule from there.
