Keeping your commercial building clean is no small feat. These spaces are large and there are so many people coming in and out regularly, it’s no wonder that it is so difficult to keep clean. Whether you’re the manager or owner of a commercial building, creating a cleaning schedule for your space is a must. It doesn’t matter if you’re hiring a professional cleaning team to get the job done or you’re doing it yourself, it’s crucial that you have a schedule made up.

To determine what needs to be cleaned and how frequently, you are going to need to look at a few factors. The team at Floor Expo are going to touch on some of the things that we believe play a part in creating a cleaning schedule for your commercial building. Let’s dive in!

Number of Employees

Without a doubt, you are going to need to consider the number of employees that are regularly in your commercial space when figuring a cleaning schedule. For starters, the number of employees is going to contribute to the size of the building and the size of the messes that you’ll see, but it will also contribute to how quickly messes happen.

Customers Coming In

Aside from the number of employees that you have in your commercial building regularly, you are also going to want to take into consideration whether or not customers/clients are coming in. If they are, how many are coming in regularly? Adding this number to that of your employees will give you an idea about the number of people you need to account for.

Type of Flooring

The part of a commercial building that often gets the dirtiest will be the floor. Given that this is what everyone is walking on, it doesn’t take much for it to get dirty and show. So, when you’ve determined how many people are walking on the floor and what they look like at the end of a day with that much traffic, you can get an idea of how frequently they need to be cleaned. Along with that, the type of flooring that you have installed throughout your commercial space will factor into how often they need to be cleaned. Tile and hardwood floors are much more likely to show a mess than carpet will be.

Tasks Being Completed

Not all commercial spaces are used the same. If your commercial space is primarily an office building where people are spending a majority of the day sitting at desks, then you likely won’t have to worry about bigger messes happening. On the other hand, if your commercial building is going to be used for working on messier projects, you may need to increase the number of times that it is being cleaned and what exactly is being maintained.
