If you and your employees are relatively neat, it can be easy to believe that your cubicles are impeccably clean. After all, you may arrange your papers neatly at the end of each day and don’t notice any dust or debris while you’re working. However, it’s important not to confuse tidy with clean. Just because your cubicles are relatively clutter-free does not mean they are inherently clean. Here are some factors you may not be considering.
How to Tell How Dirty your Cubicles Really Are
- Desks Every day, your desks are used for heavy duty work. Sure, you may keep things in order and may not deal with products that seem likely to make your desks sticky or dirty, but they get used all day, every day. This means employees are likely to eat at their desks, accidentally get pen or highlighter on their desks and sometimes even – gasp! – sneeze at their desks. As a result, desks can often be much less clean than they visually appear. It’s important to give desks a regular cleaning to make sure that they are germ-free and ready to serve your needs.
- Cubicle Partitions and Walls Cubicle partitions are often overlooked spaces. While your desks may get wiped down on somewhat of a regular basis, it’s incredibly unlikely that your employees are regularly cleaning their cubicle partitions. As part of every day wear, they’re likely to get dusty and may even have residual stains from spills without regular cleanings. This is something you may not even notice until you give those partitions a good hard look. Luckily, you don’t need to be highly skilled in partition cleaning – a well-trained commercial cleaning service can do that for you.
- Cabinets and Baseboards Much like at your home, cabinets and baseboards can gather grime over time. Unlike at your home, it’s rare that businesses remember to clean these regularly. Why would they? They’re busy doing work while they’re at work, and not trying to maintain a fully sanitized environment. Rather than spending precious work time cleaning surfaces like cabinets and baseboards where dirt can build up slowly over time, it can save time and money to hire a janitorial service.
Of course, we’re somewhat biased. That’s because we’ve seen everything there is to see when it comes to cubicles and how clean they really are. We want to help you put your best foot forward so that you can focus on the work you need to focus on. Taking cubicle cleaning off your hands can save you time and money – something we’ve also seen in regular practice.
