Any type of transit station is going to be a high-traffic area. Airports, and train and bus stations require cleaning on a consistent, continual basis. With large spaces like transit and travel stations that move large amounts of people and equipment in and out every day, staying on top of the clean up keeps your transit location an inviting and easy to use space for visitors and staff alike. Let’s look at 4 areas of utmost importance to keeping your transit stations clean and pleasant.
4 Areas to Clean in your Transit Station
Restrooms receive vast amounts of use on any given day in these types of environments. In a way, more than many other types of facilities. The reason being, the large amounts of travelers who will be in the restrooms while cleaning teams are also servicing these areas. This type of overlap of cleaning staff with travelers should be accounted for in these types of environments. Restroom patrons will be dashing around in a hurry to get to their destinations when in an airport, bus or train station. These types of circumstances might leave facilities extra messy. When cleaning your transit station bathrooms, your cleaning team needs to stay aware of this fact and plan their clean processes accordingly. For example: staying on top of trash cans and emptying them often, as well as picking up floors and flat surfaces to keep these areas dry, tidy and free of debris.
2. Waiting Areas
Many of us love to travel. But travel goes hand in hand with waiting. And waiting areas of airports, bus and trains stations can get messy. Travelers will be eating and drinking, talking on the phone, and probably even napping. In these types of situations, food debris, dirt, and trash will inevitably be left behind. Cleaning crews need to pay special attention to these areas to keep them looking their best. Keeping these areas clean not only helps create a happy atmosphere, but it will also help prolong the good conditions of the travel facility – keeping furniture, fixtures and carpets looking better longer.
3. Tidy Not Trashy
A highly important cleaning task for airports, bus and train stations is: trash. People drop things and forget things. A cleaning crew needs to be on continuous circulation throughout your facility because of this. They can do this by conducting a repeating sweep for trash in walking areas, restaurant eating areas, and ticket areas, just to name a few. Picking up trash on floors, tables, and seating areas while also emptying trash bins in this vast, but crowded space, is important to keeping an airport, bus and train station environment pleasant. Again, with large traffic areas like a transit station, messes will be made. Staying on top of them is the best option to keep your facility looking its best.
4. Carpets and Windows
While carpets should be vacuumed on a daily basis – and more often in higher traffic areas of your airport, bus and train station – the carpets and windows might not need to a cleaned every day. A rotation type of schedule is probably best for these areas. For example, you can work from one side of the airport, bus and train station, to the other, cleaning and shining windows throughout the week. And you can follow the same process when shampooing carpets. At the same time, touch ups in these areas should be regularly monitored to clean up obvious messes in between your rotation schedule.
Hire a Cleaning Crew
The best way to keep your airport, bus or train station looking its best is to hire a professional cleaning team to come in on a regular basis.
