With the weather cooling down, it is important to take a look at your businesses’ winter cleaning practices. Your commercial space is the heart and soul of your business, and keeping it clean will contribute to the health, morale, and safety of your employees and visitors. R&S understands how important it is to keep your space clean, so we are sharing our tops tips for commercial winter cleaning.  

Entry and Walkways 

There is always a possibility that employees or visitors could slip and fall walking in the building after a winter storm rolls through. Whether there’s rain or snow, be sure to have anti-slip and waterproof mats at every entrance to the building. The mats will also help lessen the amount of dirt, snow, and grime that may come in on winter boots and shoes. 

Keep Your Floors Clean 

During the winter months, make sure you’re taking care of your office flooring as it gets a lot of use. Employees and visitors bring in a lot of water and salt on their winter boots and shoes that can eat away at your floors and cause permanent damage. Regularly maintain your floors by mopping, vacuuming, and adding entry mats for people to wipe their feet. 

Disinfect Surface Areas 

Colder weather means an increase in seasonal illnesses like colds, the flu, and many other viruses. Remember, germs and illnesses spread quickly in highly used areas! Keep the germs at bay by regularly disinfecting surface areas and touchpoints such as: 

  • Desks 
  • Doorknobs 
  • Handles 
  • Computers  
  • Flat surfaces 

The Windows 

Keep employee and visitor morale high by cleaning the windows and letting the light shine in. Cleaning the dirt and grime from winter weather will help with the appearance inside and outside of your space and will boost everyone’s moods while working inside.
