What Dallas janitorial services do for you

Let the Dallas janitorial company tell you what they do

As we mentioned in our previous blog post, Selecting a reputable janitorial service, a great way to approach your search for a Dallas janitorial service or cleaning company is to interview candidates as if you would interview a potential new employee. This includes asking questions, asking for qualifications, and asking for (and checking) references. While this is a great way to start your search, there are additional ways to qualify candidates.

One additional way to do this is to ask potential vendors to give you an overview of their services. This overview should be a strategic detail of their cleaning process. Quality candidates should provide you an explanation of how and when they clean as many providers choose to clean along a planned path for efficiency and to ensure proper coverage. The cleaning services provided should also be scalable for future growth.

Potential vendors should also be able to provide you a schedule for deep cleaning. This deep cleaning encompasses tasks such as polishing and waxing floors and steam cleaning carpeting. Good companies understand that regular and routine maintenance of floors and carpeting both keeps flooring looking good and extends its life.

A professional cleaning company should also be using commercial cleaning equipment. They should provide their own cleaning solutions, linens, and equipment and ensure it is also well maintained. Good companies recognize that using quality cleaning tools is a critical part of providing great service.

Many janitorial services or cleaning companies can provide strategies for your business to save money, such as implementing inventory and stocking systems for paper products and cleaning chemicals.

Companies that you interview that can provide strategic, scalable services coupled with commercial cleaning equipment can provide quality and cost-effective cleaning. This level of cleaning will keep your office or business looking great!


Hot Tub or Petri Dish? Minimize Health Risks While Maintaining Your Hot Tub.

Hot tubs are a popular way to unwind or soothe sore muscles at a gym. As a result of frequent use, hot tubs can become one of the germiest places in the workout facility.

As people use the hot tub, water can become contaminated. Most facilities have posted signs cautioning against use if an individual is ill, has a rash, or has open cuts or sores, but these warnings are often ignored. If contaminated water is accidentally swallowed, it can cause infections in eyes, ears, and nasal passages. Fecal, fungal, and staphylococcus microbes are often found in hot tub water samples, and can cause serious skin infections. Skin infections are the number one reported side effect of using hot tubs according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Because hot tubs may simply smell of chlorine or appear to be heavily chlorinated, many people believe that hot tubs are germ free. While chlorine does kill most germs, it does not kill all germs. Chlorine treatment also does not sterilize the water in the tub. High water temperatures can speed up the evaporation of chlorine and other sanitizing chemicals, making it important that chemical levels be consistently monitored and maintained in order to ensure a high level of safety.

Gyms and other facilities with hot tubs should have a maintenance and sanitation program in place, or utilize a reputable, professional company to maintain and sanitize the hot tub and its equipment. This maintenance and sanitation program should include draining the tub completely in order to thoroughly sanitize the tub (including interior pipes). The maintenance program should also include the removal of any debris from drains and filters. Finally, a well-managed chemical treatment system should be established and followed at all times in order to minimize the growth of germs and minimize risk.
