If you’re in the business of fun and games and own or manage an entertainment venue such as a bowling alley, movie theater, arcade, or concert arena, you know that keeping your facility clean is a monumental task. Maintaining restrooms, keeping concessions clean, and ensuring common areas and seating are up to snuff is a lot for in-house cleaning crews or hourly employees to manage. If you want to make sure your floors aren’t sticky and you have happy customers that will come back, you should consider hiring a professional janitorial service.
Janitorial service companies tackle your toughest cleaning jobs more efficiently than hourly employees who should be focusing on sales and ensuring customer satisfaction. Janitorial services prepare your place for crowds. They will clean, stock, and sanitize restrooms in order to keep them fresh, ready, and protect your patrons’ health. Door handles and handrails also collect germs as customers visit and move through your business. Professional cleaning crews tackle your floors and carpets, and even make sure they’re protected against oil, dirt, and chemicals tracked in by your customers. Janitorial service companies handle your seasonal maintenance to polish and wax floors in foyers and hallways, and deep clean your carpeting to prevent stains.
Professional janitorial service companies also protect your investment by cleaning your venue’s seating including fabric coverings found in movie theaters and concert halls. Cleaning fabric upholstery removes dirt and grime that can build up in threads and make fabric appear dingy and unattractive to guests. Dirt and grime also makes upholstery fabric wear faster.
If you’re considering outsourcing your entertainment venue’s cleaning needs, contact a professional janitorial service for quotes. If your business keeps late hours, make sure you communicate your scheduling needs when searching for a provider. This allows the vendor you choose to understand your schedule, clean behind the scenes, and make sure your customers are having good, clean fun!
Commercial carpeting is made for high traffic, and it’s a good thing it is, because it typically undergoes a great deal of wear and tear. Fortunately for business owners, there are steps you can take to keep your carpet looking great, and prolong your carpet’s lifespan.
While commercial carpets are made to withstand more traffic, they also require more maintenance. Commercial carpets should be vacuumed daily – but not just for aesthetics. Vacuuming daily removes both seen (and unseen) dirt and debris from carpet’s pile and prevents it from wearing down fibers.
It is also important to use the right kind of vacuum to clean your carpets. Commercial cleaning services use commercial vacuums to clean your business’ carpet, as they are built to handle heavier dirt loads than residential vacuums. Commercial vacuums are also more durable than residential vacuums.
Just like vacuuming regularly, it is also important to have your carpets regularly deep cleaned. Many businesses do not have their carpets cleaned on a regular schedule simply because they don’t appear dirty. However, commercial carpets are made to hide stains and dirt – and thus do not look dirty to the eye. As a result, carpet pile may be degraded by unseen (and untreated) dirt and stains.
Another way to prolong the life of your carpet is to ensure office chairs have protective mats underneath them. Chair rollers can damage carpet but trapping dirt and pushing it further into the pile – even more than normal foot traffic!
Maintaining your commercial carpet is not difficult, but the basic maintenance steps described above should be done consistently and frequently to protect your investment and extend the life of your carpet. Replacing your business carpeting can be expensive, but a consistent cleaning schedule or regular service by a professional carpet cleaning company will protect your investment.
