Office and Store Cleaning Checklist

retail store cleaning

When you are busy running a successful company, dealing with clients, managing employees and handling contracts, the last thing you need to worry about is cleaning your office. That’s why you need a professional cleaning team. But before you hire a commercial cleaning service, make sure that you have developed an office cleaning checklist so that the cleaning service know exactly what you expect of them and what duties they will be required to undertake to fulfill their contract.

A larger commercial professional cleaner will usually have a wider variety of services to offer and often have more technologically advanced equipment, more highly trained professionals and are more experienced on cleaning much large commercial facilities.

For example, a larger commercial professional cleaner may have ultra-filtration vacuum systems (with HEPA filter to limit the amount of dust in the air), dusting equipment with nano-fibers to reduce dust and static. They may also offer extra services such as pest control, landscaping, parking lot maintenance and HVAC cleaning and maintenance. Another advantage of a larger cleaning company is that if you are not satisfied with their work they have a large enough staff to send you alternative personnel to do the job satisfactorily.

Reception Room/Foyer Cleaning Checklist

This is the first part of your facility that clients will se as they enter so it is vital that it makes a good impression. For this reason the reception area needs more than just a routine weekly dusting. It should be vacuumed daily. If it is carpeted the carpet should be stem cleaned on a regular basis to prevent it becoming stained to too dirty. If the floor is not carpeted it need to be treated and polished on a regular basis to prevent it from becoming dull. Any trash bins need to be emptied daily and all surfaces should be dusted and sanitized. Windows should be kept clean inside and out. Cobwebs should be removed from corners and ceiling s on a regular basis. Light switches and door handles should be kept clean.

Restroom Cleaning Checklist

Bathrooms absolutely must be cleaned at least one each day and more often if they have a lot of use throughout the day. This cleaning regime must include the hand basins, floors, toilet bowl and urinals. Hand sanitizers and towels should be replaced. Mirrors, hand driers and light switches should be cleaned. Waste bins should be emptied. Any air fresheners should be refilled.

Break Room/ Kitchen Cleaning Checklist

All surfaces should be sanitized particularly food preparation areas, cooking surfaces and sinks. Waste must be emptied daily. Tables and chairs should be cleansed. Remind staff not to leave left over food in the refrigerator.

Office Area Cleaning Checklist

All other areas should be dusted cleansed and vacuumed if necessary on a daily or bi-weekly basis as needed. Internal and external windows should be kept clean dan wasted should be removed regularly.
