Four Things to Do For Fall

In Texas, we enjoy summer a little longer than the rest of the country, but it’s not too early to start thinking about fall. Although, if you’re anything like us, you’ve probably been thinking about fall since the first day temperatures hit one hundred degrees! You can prepare your business for the shift in seasons by calling in a professional janitorial service to tackle these four fall tasks you should have on your to-do list.

  1. Windows – Take advantage of the warm weather and clean those windows! If your windows or doors are dirty, they leave your customers with a negative impression. It is also important to clean your windows to let light in – especially during the fall and winter when exposure to sunlight is limited because there are less hours of daylight (and you’re in the office for most of them!).
  2. Floor Care – Your cleaning professionals can prepare and protect your hard surface flooring by ensuring that they’re cleaned, polished, and waxed. Waxing protects your floors from wet and muddy weather. Use entry mats to protect your floors and carpeting. We also suggest placing an umbrella stand in your entry or lobby so clients may easily stow umbrellas (and prevent water from dripping on to your floors)
  3. Duct cleaning – Consider having your janitorial service company clean your ducts this fall (and again in the spring!) to clear out any dust or pollen that could affect allergies or aggravate respiratory conditions.
  4. Gutters – Fall is a great time to have gutters cleaned to make sure they’re free from debris or leaves that could cause a clog when it rains. Ask your janitorial service company if they service gutters, or if they could recommend a gutter cleaning company to you.

Spring Cleaning for your Office?

You probably Spring Clean at home every year, but as a business owner do you spruce up your Fort Worth office for Spring? If not, you may want to also consider Spring cleaning your business because, just like your home, your office can get dusty, cluttered, and may need extra attention to ensure you are ready for your customers this season.

There are many tasks you can put on your list for Spring Cleaning but here are ones we consider most important:

De-Clutter/Dust: Help eliminate office clutter sorting discarding paperwork no longer needed (be sure to shred or recycle!). Paper creates dust which can be an allergen to many people. Dust is also attracted to your office electronics – so be sure to dust computers, keyboards, and monitors.

Carpet Cleaning: Deep cleaning your office carpet is very important. As we have mentioned previously, dirt, chemicals, and debris can get tracked into your business and impact the appearance, smell, and even the lifespan of carpeting. While you can vacuum your carpeting to keep it free of debris, you should hire a professional janitorial service to tackle the task of carpet deep cleaning at least once per quarter to remove chemicals, dirt, and harmful bacteria.

Floor Maintenance: Also ask your janitorial service about deep cleaning other flooring (tile, stone, or wood) in your office. It may need to be stripped, waxed, or buffed. It is important to have regular floor maintenance done by professionals in order to make sure your flooring is safe, well-maintained, and looking its very best.

Window Cleaning: Spring cleaning is also a great time for window cleaning. Cleaning windows will allow sunlight in and give your office a brighter and more inviting atmosphere. Window cleaning is a serious – and sometimes dangerous – undertaking best left to a professional janitorial service company.
