The cleaning industry is complex and giant. The UK market for contract cleaning is estimated to be £5.6 billion alone. Within this massive industry there are an array of different types of cleaning services that will suit different types of businesses. These range from the need for an industrial clean to wanting a one off basic clean.
In this article we explore some types of cleaning available for your business to help you narrow down what exactly it is you need.
If your offices need a regular clean, daily cleaning services are right for you. These can take place either before or after your staff are out of the building. A daily cleaning requirement is usually created on a bespoke basis matching the need of the client.
Daily cleaning services are often required by businesses with a large capacity and high foot traffic throughout the day. Cleaning on a regular basis ensures you create a good first impression to anybody walking into the office and give the perception of a professional, organised company.
Daily cleaning can include:
- Cleaning and sanitising individual workstations
- Dusting and wiping computer monitors and keyboards
- Cleaning and sanitising office phones
- Cleaning and sanitising light switches, handles and doorknobs
- Removing cobwebs and dust light fixtures
- Cleaning windows, glass, and any painted surfaces
- Cleaning and sanitising all hard surfaces
- Vacuuming or mopping floors
- Cleaning general areas including reception, meeting rooms
- Cleaning and sanitising kitchen, sinks and food preparation areas
- Washing hand towels and tea towels
- Cleaning and sanitising bathrooms and toilets
- Emptying waste and recycling bins, cleaning and disinfecting where necessary
Periodic cleaning is ideal for an office that does not require a daily clean. Just like daily cleaning, however, the services provided are the same. When creating a periodic cleaning schedule, a business must take their requirements into consideration and create something that works for them. This means a business can be cleaned every other day, every week, fortnightly or monthly.
Periodic cleaning is often beneficial for smaller offices that do not have as many visitors and staff using them each day. They are also good for an industry that does not have regular visitors to an office.
A deep clean is a professional cleaning service offered when a business needs something cleaned, beyond the level of cleanliness offered through daily and periodic cleaning. A deep clean is performed by a specialist team using the latest methods of cleaning.
Kitchen Deep Cleans. Industrial kitchens often need regular cleaning of all equipment and the surfaces to ensure maximise levels of hygiene are being achieved. This involves using eco-friendly and biodegradable chemicals, where feasible, to de-scale, de-grease and remove carbon deposits. This includes ovens, fryers, canopies and extraction units.
Commercial and/or Residential Property Deep Cleans. These premises can suffer from a severe build-up of dirt, debris, or even just everyday dust. This can be in materials, on surfaces or in the carpets.
A deep clean not only drastically helps improve the appearance of a business’s premises and assets, but it can also prolong their life.
Clinical cleaning is for environments which require a high level of hygiene, such as Clinics, Hospitals and Treatment Facilities. A clinical cleaning service can be put in place to manage places that have an incredibly high risk of infection.
Often clinical cleaning will comply to the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and National Healthcare Standards. This means that specialists can support businesses through approved consumables, such as sanitisers, soaps, recycled paper products, washroom services and waste removal (including sharps).
Again, infection control services are aimed at hospitals who are looking for a cleaning service that goes above and beyond the average as it is so important in this sector. It is important that this service is carried out correctly and to a high standard to stop the spread of infections. This can be done by various high temperature steam and fogging techniques.
A window cleaning service is necessary for most businesses. The cleaning of a company’s windows helps create a professional and competent feel for visitors visiting your premises. Window cleaning can be booked when you need it or it can be set up on a regular schedule.
Window cleaning services are unique and depend on the client’s requirements. Some are as simple as cleaning reception and low-lying windows easily visible to customers, where others require techniques such as rope access window cleaning to reach hard to reach windows. Hiring a professional window cleaning service helps ensure you are cleaning your windows in the most efficient and non-intrusive way possible.
Pest control is a type of cleaning solution that helps prevent and treat the infestation of pest and rodents on a business’ premises. Pest control cleaning services can cover both commercial and residential properties from shopping centres, offices and factories to residential homes and flats. Based on a site survey, it is possible to implement a suitable pest control programme based on routine maintenance and strategic baiting.
