Cleaning Entrances and Common Areas

This article was originally published in Clean Link.

Entrances and common areas are very different from personal office areas, and cleaning them is no exception. This information article recently published in Clean Link identifies eight steps to cleaning entrances and common areas.

  1. Move furniture or other items as directed using care not to scratch surfaces.
  2. Take more time vacuuming carpeted areas to allow pick up and also be more thorough in covering the area wall to wall. This applies especially to mats and entrances or high traffic lanes.
  3. Promptly address spots on carpet as soon as possible to reduce the chances of it becoming a stain. Identify the spot type, choose appropriate chemical, spray and blot turning cloth over to allow soil to wick into cloth.
  4. Inspect and dust mop hard floor surfaces taking note as to the type floor (Vinyl Composite Tile with finish or granite as an example). Use a microfiber dust mop when possible and be sure to sweep up debris.
  5. Place appropriate warning signs for any wet work being performed.
  6. Inspect and remove gum, heel marks and other abrasions when possible before damp mopping.
  7. Damp mop utilizing a neutral detergent that will not damage finish or stone surfaces which can be susceptible to harsh acids or alkalis.
  8. Clean and return all equipment to storage area for the next day’s use. Ask your supervisor to take a digital picture of how the closet, cart, barrel should look and then make sure that you keep your area and equipment clean, stocked and up to standard.
