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

It’s time to get your office ready for the holiday season!

Some people think that cleaning the office before a holiday party isn’t all that important. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Holiday parties are essentially morale boosters. You have to show the office at its best, so that your people are proud to be part of your business. A clean office also helps people get into the partying mood.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, we thought we would share a couple cleaning tips for your building during this holiday season.

Make it sparkle

Before the holiday parties, do a deep clean to your office.  Your customers, contractors, salespeople and employees may be more willing to join in the holiday spirit if your facility is clean, shining and inviting. SanServe Janitorial can help make sure that this happens, well before you start decorating for the occasion. Clean windows, dust-free surfaces, spotless restrooms, shiny tile floors and clean carpets will show that you are proud of your building and that you truly want it to be presented in the best light.

Eat, drink and be merry – but also be clean

Certainly, you want your tenants to enjoy and celebrate this holiday season. Most everyone in every office building brings in special food during the holidays (especially sweets!). Take the time to remind them to securely store their treats at the end of the day so that ants and other pests don’t become a problem.

When it comes to party time, you’ll of course want to make sure that floors and carpets are spotless and that any food preparation areas, such as break rooms or kitchens, are sanitized before being used. After the party, your janitorial service can be your best friend. Parties lead to accidental messes, such as spilled food and drinks. A good janitorial service can remove all evidence of holiday partying from your office facility, often before the next business day. Of course, you will want to make sure to notify your cleaning service of any parties, gatherings or other special events that would affect cleaning times.

These holiday cleaning tips should go a long way toward helping your building be the very best it can be, this season and all year-long. SanServe Janitorial is ready to take care of your holiday janitorial needs, call us today 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.

I came across this hilarious commercial and yes, this is the worlds worst janitor but it does remind you of the importance of hiring a fully insured cleaning company.

 

 

 

I know we are always looking to save where we can and price is an important factor when choosing a cleaning company but you’ve heard the saying, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is“. The money you would save by hiring a non-insured/bonded company or individual could end up costing you big time in the long run!

Companies that are not properly insured often offer lower rates because they do not have to worry about the premiums that insured companies have to pay out such as SanServe Janitorial.   If you hire a company without the proper insurances, you as a business owner can be liable for any theft, injuries, or damages done by the cleaner.  SanServe Janitorial will take that responsibility off of you by bonding and insuring all of our employees, including a ten-million dollar umbrella liability coverage and workers compensation, giving you a peace of mind while we are in your facility.  SanServes employees are highly dependable, responsible, and love exceeding your expectation while cleaning your facility.  In addition to insurance and bonding, all of our employees are drug tested and have complete background checks to keep your mind at ease.

 

If you are looking for a fully insured/bonded & trustworthy janitorial company, contact SanServe Janitorial today. We’ll be the last cleaner you’ll ever hire... Call 1-800-274-8464 for a free quote!

Making hand washing fun for the classroom!

There is no way around it, our kiddos are notorious for having germy little fingers.  Unfortunately, while they are at school, they are less likely to wash or sanitize their hands after using the restroom, before lunch, and after recess….. Perhaps it is because they don’t have us there to nag.  If you think about it, students spend the entire day in such close proximity and when you have at least half of them not washing their hands throughout the day,  it’s no wonder why student lose nearly 22 million days of school per year.

As parents, we are constantly staying on top of clean hygiene with our own little ones but I couldn’t imagine trying to stay on top of entire classroom of kids.  It’s time to come together as parents, teachers, and staff to start promoting healthy hand washing habits to reduce the spread of these nasty germs that spread like a wildfire among these children. Here are a few fun activities that teachers and school staff can use to start getting students excited about washing their hands:

Coloring and Activity Projects
Allow the kids have a little fun during this lesson, it will keep them entertained and they will also get the visual of the importance of keeping germs away.  Here is a link to “Henry the Hand” free printable coloring and activity book.  This is a great start!

Explore the Campus
Set aside 15 minute out of the day to take the class to different sink locations throughout the campus.  The kids will look forward to not only taking a break from their school work but you will have them excited to explore the different areas of their campus…. Just another simple fun way to get them into the habit of washing their hands.

Reward
Encourage clean hand washing habits by coming up with a reward system.  Use a chart that they can earn stickers after they practice their good habits. Once they fill their card, offer fun incentives, such as a prize out of the “mystery box”, a homework pass, wear your favorite hat day, etc.  Be as creative as you would like, kids will love earning their rewards!

Oh my, glitter
Glitter is a great way to show the kids how much effort you should use to properly remove germs.  Since we cannot see germs, using glitter to symbolize germs will allow them to see the different techniques that are used to remove all “glittery germs”….. Let them try different variations of the process, warm vs. cold water, soap vs. no soap, etc.  This will allow them to see which method works best for germ removal.

This is a great start to keeping our kids healthy and showing that healthy practices can be fun. The more we encourage our kids/students to be enthusiastic over keeping their hands clean, the more likely they will keep germ-free hands and that will reduce the illnesses spreading in the classrooms.

I know what you may be thinking from reading the title, but this is not an article that is meant to make you feel bad about yourself in any way, promise. A lot of people, who work normal desk jobs and stay in their teeny tiny cramped offices all day, have a difficult time keeping it clean.

This is completely understandable, when it’s taken into account that you have to work to the best of your ability and pay no attention to the trash in your office.  That is totally okay because there special janitors out there who work and clean strictly for offices and industries.  Janitor services are really needed in any place where people stay for an extended period of time, besides their own homes of course.

The janitorial services are doing the job that they are doing for a reason, and that reason is that they want to help out anyone that they can and clean up their messes, to clear out the clutter in their offices and work spaces in general.  Most people hear the word "janitor" and their minds instantly jump to the thought of a creepy old man with a wonky eye rolling a trash can with wheels down the hallway of a school. Yes, there are janitors like that, and they are terrifying. But, that's not what we're talking about here.

It is also a belief that all janitors hate their jobs, and all of the people that are around them while they are working.  This is also not true.  Janitors take pride in keeping everyone's work space clean, and giving them a proper environment to do their work and earn their money.  All these stereotypes of janitors need to be put to rest and never awakened again, because they are not helping anyone and they are most certainly not true, actually they couldn't be farther from the truth.  If you want all of the stereotypes that you know about janitor to be proven wrong and you need someone available at all times to clean your work space, it might be a good idea to hire an office janitor today.

Because no one deserves to be stuck in a dirty office space all day, especially when it can’t be helped that the space isn't clean at all times.  Get rid of the clutter in your work space, and hire an industrial janitor as soon as you can. Call us for a free quote 1-800-274-8464

From time to time, we get calls from potential customers that are shopping around for their cleaning services, hoping to find the bottom dollar. I will be the first to admit, I love a good deal but there are some services where the cheapest price isn’t always the best deal, and I would like to tell you the top reasons why!  

·         The company could be using illegal immigrants and paying them below minimum wage or under the table.  This means they are not providing background checks, and the safety of your business could be at risk.  SanServe Janitorial conducts a mandatory DISA background check and drug test prior to hiring.  We also take pride on being able to offer our staff pay rates that attract and retain the best quality employees to meet or exceed your expectations.

 ·       Chances are, they are not bonded and insured. If something were to happen to them while they were on your property or let’s say if an item is stolen or broken; you are responsible for taking care of the damages. SanServe Janitorial and all of our employees are bonded and insured, including a ten-million dollar umbrella liability coverage and workers compensation.

·         Low proposals often reflect that the service will have cheap equipment, low end cleaning products, and unskilled employees who will provide less than professional service. When the bid is enormously lower than the others, it often means that corners are being cut in order to make a profit. We know what it takes to get the job done right because we are a specialty contractor and we have been providing janitorial service to the commercial, industrial, and petrochemical industry for over 50 years. This experience has allowed us to develop technical expertise, systems, and the ability to train personnel to facilitate services as it relates to these industries.  That is why we are able to exceed our customer’s expectations.

Most well established cleaning companies will rarely be the lowest bid proposal, they have invested in the training, equipment, and high end cleaning products in order to provide you with the high level of service that you would expect. Everyone at SanServe Janitorial prides ourselves on building long lasting relationship with our customers! If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-800-274-8464 or submit a quick quote!

Frequently scheduled floor care is so important for maintaining a clean environment for your customers and employees.  Floor scrubbing and buffing, as well as strip and wax refinishing can be done by Sanserve Janitorial’s highly trained floor technicians.  Here are a few tips to keep your vinyl floors lasting in between your scheduled floor maintenance. 

Always sweep or dust mop your floors, this should be done daily.

Place floor mats inside of every entrance to your building. This will help capture dirt off of everyone’s shoes as they enter the building.

You should only use cold water to mop vinyl floors and never use hot water. Use a mild floor cleaner and follow the manufacturer's recommended directions. Once the mop water becomes too, dump out your mop bucket and refill it with fresh water and cleaner. Also, change your mops regularly and would recommend using cotton or cotton/rayon blend mop heads.

Avoid using any of the following cleaners on a waxed floor, as these cleaners will dull floors over time.

  • Pine-sol
  • Ammonia
  •  Bleach
  • Powerful cleaner/degreasers
  • Solvents or any other strong cleaners

If you would like to start a floor care program, call or e-mail us today!  We would be more than happy to gear a floor plan to meet your needs!
