What Is A Deep Clean?
Posted on 16th June 2020 by Andy Roberts
Cleaning commercial spaces are essential, especially when you consider how many people use them each day and end up touching everything within them. With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, cleaning is now more important than ever, and office buildings are going to start opening back up to their staff again. With this in mind, an increasing number of companies are looking to professional deep cleaning services to get the work done to a high standard. But the key thing you should be asking yourself is what is a deep cleaning, and what makes it different?
What is Regular Cleaning?
This is a set of cleaning tasks that are performed on a regular basis, and it is also referred to as domestic cleaning. This regular cleaning is carried out on a daily or weekly basis, and includes the standard home cleaning tasks you would expect such as:
- Vacuuming and mopping
- Cleaning bathrooms
- Cleaning kitchen
- General tidying
While regular cleaning is often referred to as domestic cleaning, these tasks are also undertaken in a commercial setting. Office buildings and other industrial work areas still require daily and weekly cleaning tasks, so don’t dismiss them before you have done your research.
It is best to combine regular cleaning services with deep ones, providing you with an end result that covers all your bases and is incredibly thorough. After all, you don’t want to risk your staff becoming sick due to a lack of cleanliness in the workplace.
What is Deep Cleaning?
This is a little different from regular cleaning, and it is also the kind of service that you hire at the end of a tenancy. Additionally, these are tasks that should be done every six months or so within a commercial setting. It covers areas that are not traditionally included in a standard cleaning service, such as:
- Behind kitchen appliances like the washing machine and oven
- Under the sink
- Inside the oven, including the oven door glass
- Inside of window frames and patio doors
- Inside and outside of all windows
- Washing all blinds
- Full and deep dusting including all the corners of rooms for cobwebs
- Scale removal from all bathroom tiles, kitchen tiles, taps, showerheads etc
Deep cleaning takes longer than standard services, but it leaves the area looking fresher and cleaner than ever before. To add some perspective, it can take between three and 12 hours to clean a typical two-bedroom home, so when you apply that to your office building it should give you a rough ballpark figure. It reaches all the hidden corners you would never think of, so it’s worth the extra time and money spent.
Why is Deep Cleaning Important?
Deep cleaning gets right beneath the surface, getting right into the nitty-gritty and removing grime that has built up over time. While your office might look good on the surface as a result of regular cleaning, the bacteria lurking below can cause a great deal of harm to the health of your workers – especially if it has gathered over time and been left to fester.
The current pandemic means that before you move your staff back into the office, you are going to want to ensure that their place of work is absolutely pristine to avoid risking illness – which will end up costing you money and losing productivity. Scheduling deep clean means that you can relax in the knowledge that they will be returning to a workplace that doesn’t put them at risk.
