Spring is usually a time of revitalization and refresh. This is the perfect time to give your facility a “spring clean” on the inside and outside of your building. Take a look at some of the simple ways you can give your facility a fresh boost to enhance your image and keep your facility at its top performance.
Clean, Disinfect, and Sanitize Surfaces
No matter the season it is critical to sanitize surfaces in your facility to help prevent germs, but in keeping with the spirit of spring, a thorough cleaning it is a good place to start! At Omni Facility Maintenance we offer sanitation spraying. It is recommended by the CDC that you regularly clean and disinfect high touch surfaces such as tables, chairs, and doorknobs, and our sanitation spray service makes it easy. Not only will it clean the surfaces that you use most frequently, but it will also give you peace of mind knowing that your staff and all who visit your facility, are in a safe environment, free from germs and harmful bacteria.
Deep Clean Restrooms
Daily cleaning is essential to keeping your facility’s restrooms clean. Dirt and bacteria can build up over time and can leave your restroom not only looking unclean, but also smelling foul. Make your restrooms sparkle again! After a thorough clean and sanitization, you should then implement a routine for regular cleanings to maintain cleanliness and prevent cross-contamination and odor-causing bacteria. Use the routine to create daily checklists of areas to be cleaned, and maintaining the restrooms in your facility will be a breeze!
Organize and Stock Supply Closets
Organizing your supply closet may not always be top of mind, and because of that they can easily become disorganized. When your supply closet is a cluttered mess, day-to-day cleaning operations and restocking can be challenging. Spring is an opportune time to fully clean them out and evaluate what supplies work and which don’t. Once you have cleaned out the supplies that have not been used or have passed their expiration, you can restock your supply closet with products used daily for easy access.
Check your Air Conditioning Units
Spring means longer days and warmer temperatures are ahead. By checking and servicing your air conditioning units, you can be better prepared for rising temperatures. As seasons change, it is always a good idea to check the equipment in and around your facility as a means of preventative maintenance, which will also keep your reactive maintenance to a minimum. When AC units sit unused for months, they can not only become dirty but can also accumulate a build-up of dust which can impact its performance.
Cleaning the exterior of your commercial property is just as important as keeping the inside clean and sparkly. In fact, your exterior is the first impression visitors will have of your facility before entering the inside. Power washing isn’t only about improving your curb appeal, it is also used to clear away dirt that builds up over time from seasonal changes. Failing to clean debris on your property’s exterior can lead to more significant deterioration over time. The build-up of grime and other unpleasant material like dirt and bacteria can be difficult to remove if left untouched for extended periods of time, and in worst case scenarios, can compromise the structure of the building. Left uncleaned, moisture can become trapped, leading to mold and mildew which can cause health issues for tenants and visitors of your property.
If you are thinking about power washing your building, hire a professional! At Omni Facility Maintenance we can clean and disinfect your building, sidewalks, parking lot, drive-thru, dumpsters, and even shopping carts. Power washing requires time, care, and experience to ensure that all areas are being cleaned properly. At Omni, our professionals come equipped with the correct cleaning agents and tools to get your facility properly.
Every building is susceptible to gaps and cracks, and when moisture gets trapped from wet weather conditions the issue can easily get out of hand, leading to a compromised building structure. Caulking can remedy the normal wear and tear on your facility’s exterior that comes with seasonal changes, like the April showers that we can expect to see this month! Caulking can be very beneficial on the exterior of your building because it not only improves the overall appearance, but also serves as a protective shield preventing drafty air and dripping water from coming into your building through small cracks.
Caulking can also be very cost effective; it can save you from having to replace items that might become damaged or moldy in leaky environments like ceilings, doors, windows, and flooring. The cost to repair or replace these items is well beyond what you would pay for caulking and regular maintenance. Additionally, if your building experiences water damage and that damage turns into mold, the potential for employee illness increases leading to a loss in productivity. Finally, caulking can save you money on your heating and cooling bills. By ensuring that windows and doors are properly sealed, you prevent costly hot or cool air from seeping out.
