Office Cleaning / Commercial Cleaning
Cleaning every office requires us to complete five main tasks. These are:
1. Empty your bins
Our cleaners begin by emptying the office’s bins. While the cleaner is doing this, they also do two other tasks.
They pick up any other trash they can see and take mental notes about other tasks that they might need to complete during the clean, such as coffee spills or smudges.
Brennan & Co. will change your bin liners if they get dirty or show signs of age. Due to sustainability reasons, we don’t change bin liners as often as necessary. We all need to be mindful of plastic and not use it.
2. Wiping down surfaces and desks
After emptying the bins, the cleaner will wipe down any desks or surfaces using the appropriate cloth (always a microfibre green cloth).
When wiping down a desk, the number one thing that cleaners don’t do is move things around. Paperwork, books, and other items will remain the same.
It is possible to wonder why. You might wonder why? Moving things can be frustrating for your team, as we have discovered.
We only ask that all the items on your work desks be stacked one side. Then, we will move the pile, clean it underneath, and then put it back.
Computer screens are generally dusty but not cleaned. Because LED and OLED screens are fragile, improper cleaning can cause damage.
We generally wipe phones but never pick up the handset. It’s possible to accidentally phone someone using our office phones. It would be a mistake to accidentally make a call. You can request that the phones be cleaned.
There are two ways to look at vacuuming depending on how big the site is.
First, our cleaners will spot vacuum large offices. This involves vacuuming any areas that are visible dirty. These areas, which are often high-traffic, are vacuumed during each visit. Low-traffic areas are vacuumed on a scheduled basis. The office is vacuumed once per week, or as often as necessary.
Vacuuming in small offices (100 to 300 square meters) is done differently. It is more likely that we will vacuum the entire office in one clean. Because the site is small, foot traffic is concentrated. This means that the space needs more attention.
Our cleaners will often have a pre-moistened cloth in the hand while vacuuming. This is in case any other marks or smudges are missed.
Mopping the floors is the last task that a cleaner does.
Did you know there’s only one way to mop a flooring?
Brennan & Co.’s cleaners clean a floor from corner to corner, edge to edge. Our cleaners are provided with enough quality microfibre flat mopcloth covers that can be easily changed as needed.
Another option is to use an electric mop to scrub the main floor and then use a flat one to clean the edges.
5. Final check
Our cleaners will check your office one last time before leaving. The cleaners will make one final inspection of your office, usually with a dampened cloth in their hands. This is to ensure that everything has been cleaned and that all doors have been locked.
Our cleaners are trained to dress specific areas, such as board rooms or meeting rooms.
What does it mean to dress a room?
You will need to move all of the desk chairs into the area and make it look neat and tidy. This is done so your team will know which areas have been cleaned and are ready to use the next day.
Our cleaners can do little things like clean up after a site inspection that could prove to be very valuable to our clients. Imagine your team meeting early in the morning knowing that the boardroom is ready for them.
