Spring is in the air and so is spring cleaning! While we may traditionally think of clearing out clutter and dusting those hard-to-reach places this time of year, it’s also time to think about deep cleaning your floors. That means carpets, tile, linoleum, and even hardwood. Here’s what you need to know about spring cleaning flooring at your business.
Shampooing Office Carpets
After a messy winter tracking in dirt, salt, and moisture, now is the time for a thorough, deep shampoo cleaning of your workplace carpets. Start with a good overall vacuuming to make sure all the dirt and debris is removed. Make sure to include moving your furniture to allow for complete cleaning coverage. Before the overall carpet shampooing, treat any stains and spot areas that need special attention. Once the shampooing and cleaning are complete, ensure the carpets are dry before moving furniture back to prevent any moisture from being trapped in the carpet or absorbed by your wooden furniture. If you have rugs in entry areas, either shampoo these or have them picked up and replaced by a carpet mat service. When you think about taking care of your office and business carpets, remember to follow a quarterly schedule to keep your business looking its best.
Spring Clean Tile and Grout
Spring is also the perfect time to deep clean your tile and grout. You will want to sweep and vacuum these hard surfaces as well to pick up all debris. From here, you’ll want to give the tile a good scrubbing, but most importantly, the grout has probably accumulated dirt over the winter season. Your tile has probably been mopped on a regular basis, but the grout is often left to a quarterly time frame for deep cleaning. Make sure to scrub and seal the grout lines to get them looking their best, and extend their life. If proper tile and grout cleaning hasn’t taken place in quite a while or if there is build up on your tile, you might want to consider stripping and re-waxing this surface. Refinishing your tile as necessary to really make them shine and give your office space a professional sparkle.
Linoleum Floors in the Spring
Remember the linoleum surfaces in your office and work space as well. You might have these in back exit ways, and maybe in bathrooms and kitchens. While they have been swept and mopped over the winter, you might notice grime build up on the surface or in the corners. Now is the perfect time to address these areas and make your whole office clean and sanitary after the cold, wet winter. They will look great after a good, thorough scrubbing and sanitizing.
Some office spaces also have hardwood. Maybe in the conference rooms or in a front entryway. While your hardwood flooring has also been swept and damp mopped during the winter, they may need a little more attention this spring. Maybe now your hardwood floors could use a refinishing or refreshing to give them the shine they once had! Spring is the time to take care of these areas to revitalize your workspace and complete your professional work appearance
