OFFICE CLEANING MYTHS

 

Cleaning the house is one thing, but cleaning the office is quite another. No matter what products you use, or how much time you seem to schedule yourself to do it, no one truly wants to clean the office themselves. Trying to figure out who to hire to help you clean can be tricky, especially when you start to believe some of the industry’s biggest myths.

Commercial cleaning is too expensive. I can’t trust them inside my building. I don’t need my office cleaned. As ridiculous as some of the myths may be, people believe them, and we are here to break the trend. Remember, you don’t have to believe everything you hear. Here are some of the most common myths about office cleaning:

 

 

MYTH: I CAN DO IT MYSELF

Wrong, so very wrong. While we tip our hats to the thought, there is no way that one person can handle cleaning the office all on their own while trying to manage the other countless tasks at hand. But that’s what your employees are for right? Guess again. We have been in business for over 50 years and we have come to understand that many business owners do not use commercial cleaning services because they think that they can rely on their employees to help with the menial tasks.


While it would be nice, and frankly, quite helpful, you cannot rely on your employees to take out their trash, clean out the fridge, wipe counter off, and sanitize the bathroom. Your employees want to do other things with their personal time, not help you clean their workspace. While you may be able to convince your team to take their trash out on Friday, chances are, that’s about as much as you’ll get out of them.

 

The good news is, you can always count on us! Professional, friendly and always ready to help, we offer our office cleaning services any day, anytime, whenever you need us the most.

 

 

MYTH: OFFICE CLEANING IS NOT IMPORTANT

So maybe office cleaning is not as important as remembering to pick your kids up at daycare, but it is up there on your list of things you need to do. As the first thing someone notices when they walk into your business, the cleanliness of your office represents the quality of the service that you provide. Neglecting to clean your office can impact a potential customer’s decision to work with you, as well as reduce the productivity of your employees.

 

 

 

MYTH: I DO NOT NEED COMMERCIAL GRADE PRODUCTS

Nice try. Just because you have spare cleaning products at home, does not mean you should bring them into the office and try to do a quick wipe down. Not only are you going to need much more than what you have on hand, but many cleaning products on the market are actually pretty harmful to you, your employees, your property, and the environment.

 

Impacting the indoor air quality and potentially harming your workstation surfaces, hiring a professional office cleaning company is a sure way to guarantee you are left with a spotless, safe, and sanitary environment.

Are you Prepared for Hurricane Harvey?!

Hurricane Harvey is dangerously approaching the Texas Coast and is an extremely dangerous flood threat for Texas and Louisiana. SanServe Janitorial will be working around-the-clock to ensure that our customers are kept safe and dry.  SanServe Janitorial hopes that you and your love ones stay safe through Hurricane Harvey.

SanServe Janitorial would like to offer some helpful tips how you can safely prevent long term damage after flooding because flood waters not only cause visible damage but also hidden damage to your building.  Dangerous bacteria can grow and prosper from still water and cause you and your employee’s major health problems. After calling your insurance company to see what is covered in your policy, try some of these tips on how to avoid such damage to your building.

Immediately extract water when possible. When water is standing still, it provides a breeding ground for germs and bacteria especially in carpeting.  Once the water is extracted, call your local janitorial company to perform a deep cleaning to your carpets.

Use your air conditioner and if possible, a de-humidifier to reduce moisture by drying out the air inside your home. This is the best way to stop the bacteria from growing inside your building because the bacteria needs humid conditions in order to grow. It can take weeks for flood soaked items to dry.

Properly clean and disinfect the items that came in contact with the flood water within 48 hours, otherwise dispose as much as you can of absorbent material items. This is an important part of water damage clean-up.  If it is not cleaned properly, it can cause the bacteria to hide in them and will affect the quality of air in your building.

Call your janitorial company to properly wash and disinfect walls, floors, shelves and effected items. Your janitorial service provider will take care of your floor care needs and can offer any additional water clean-up service to get your building back to where it needs to be!

This is a great opportunity to clear out the items you no longer need and can start a fresh 2016!  Here is a Spring Cleaning Checklist and a few tips on how to go about spring cleaning your office:

 

Keep only what is need

Our work spaces tend to be full of… stuff.  So look around and ask yourself, “do I need these or will I be needing it in the near future?” It’s likely you will not so time to toss it!  It will be more productive to have that extra space for yourself and your workers to breathe and move around in. 

A clean and organized office is visually pleasing to your clients and visitors…. Don’t forget, your clients may think an office reflects the work you are producing.

 

Clear desks

Allow yourself a couple minutes at the end of the day to dispose of food containers, wrappers, coffee cups, and any other trash. Then go through the files and paperwork that are still sitting on your desk and sort them, file them, and put them where they need to go. No more “oh, I’ll take care of it tomorrow.” 

 

Paper

Do we really need to print out all those unnecessary reports and old agendas? By scaling back on printing, or printing double-sided when you need a hard copy, you’ll reduce those stacks of paper that only end up piled up on your desk. Plus the trees will thank you!

 

Sort your inbox

Cleaning out your digital clutter is essential— the more organized your computer/files are, the easier it will be for you to find what you need and be more efficient. From updating contacts, making sure you are operating on the latest software upgrades, uninstalling programs that you do not use, organizing your documents that you’ll need again to the cloud or memory stick and trashing or archiving the rest, to deleting/sorting emails.  Spring comes once a year, and thank goodness so does digital spring cleaning.

 

Call the professionals

Your cleaning company can take care of the rest, but take extra responsibility for the personal and shared spaces you use on a day-to-day basis. Keeping your office clean and organized will not only help you stay sane and on track, but most importantly, it will keep your productivity level high. 

If you are ready to let us take care of the rest, call us for today for a free estimate for your janitorial needs! 1-800-274-8464

While preparing healthy meals for your family, it is so important to handle food properly and to keep your kitchen appliances clean.   Appliances such as, refrigerators, freezers, ovens and microwaves are used on a daily basis, causing these appliances to easily accumulate grease, grime and then they become breeding grounds for bacteria and germs.

Not to worry, here are a few SanServe tips and tricks on how to keep your kitchen appliances not only hygienically clean, but also to lengthen their lifespan:

 

REFRIGERATOR

CUT THOSE BAD SMELLS OUT OF YOUR FRIDGE:

ALKA-SELTZER:

Place a tab of Alka-Seltzer in a glass at the back of the fridge to remove odor in a day

VANILLA EXTRACT:

Let 2-3 cotton balls sit in a pool of Vanilla extract on a plate at the back of the fridge

CLEANING UNDER THE FRIDGE:

Get rid of all of the cobwebs, dirt, dust and food droppings that land under the fridge with a yard stick covered by a tube sock.

 

FREEZER

SPRAY METHOD

Mix equal parts of hot water and vinegar, or 1 qt hot water with 2 tbs baking soda in a spray bottle.  Spray liberally inside of freezer.

CHARCOAL:

Purchase activated charcoal from a pet store, set in freezer to absorb odors.

 

OVEN

CLEAN A DIRTY OVEN:

When cooking, don't let food bake on and then cool if bubbled over.  Toss salt on spilled food while it is still liquid and after cooling, it will be easy to wipe up.  You can apply this trick to the stove top as well. 

Create a solution of 5 T baking soda, 4 drops of Dawn soap and 4 T vinegar into a paste.  Apply to the surface of the oven with a sponge and let sit for 15 minutes. Cut a lemon in half, apply salt and scrub thoroughly with lemon, wipe clean.

 

STOVE

CLEANING GLASS STOVE TOP

Fill a bowl with hot water and mix with dish soap.  Wet a rag, then wring halfway dry.  Apply baking soda to spots and drip water with rag.  Let sit for 15 minutes and swirl the rag to clean surfacewith the paste.  Dry stovetop and it's good as new.

 

MICROWAVE

Take a handful of wet paper towels and microwave them for 3-5 minutes.  The steam will soften the grime, making it easier wipe with the paper towels once cooled.

Microwave a bowl of water and vinegar in a microwave safe bowl on high of 2 minute. Again, the steam will help break up any stubborn stains, wipe clean.

 

DISHWASHER

LEMONADE KOOL-AID

Run a packet of lemonade Kool-Aid in an empty dishwasher.  The citric acid will clean stains and lime deposits quickly.

TANG:

Use 1/2 of Tang instead of detergent and the the empty dishwasher on the normal cycle to avoid buildup.
