What is the final product you are looking for from your professional office cleaning services? Speak to one of our representatives and we will give you an honest and concise evaluation of your office.
Levels of Cleanliness
Here a is good time to address the different levels of office cleaning services and cleanliness you may want. These are the three basic levels:
1. An economic cleaning level.
2. A standard cleaning level.
3. A detailed cleaning level.
This will ultimately determine for your Los Angeles office cleaning program what to clean, how deeply you clean it and how often you address the various areas and aspects of the building. This also speaks directly to how much time will have to be spent to achieve and take care of their expectations in terms of calculating the monthly cost. Making certain it is commensurate and in line with the actual work load to achieve the desired end result.
Most customers are going to need and want the The Standard Level or the standard cleaning package. Through a quick meeting and walk through we will be certain before we leave your building which one of these you are looking for.
Basic Categories of Cleaning
Trash Collection and Disposal
Emptying all of the waste baskets & trash containers, relining the containers as needed with a plastic trash liner from the customers supplies then seeing that it is put into the trash dumpster outside. Of course making sure the containers & baskets are relined if needed and returned to their proper locations. Relining is a judgment call which sometimes is dictated by the customer. This can range from, change all trash liners everyday to when they are starting to get a bit worn change it or if there is food or liquid in it, change it. Sometimes a trash bag has a leak so you need to be aware and careful pulling it out of the container it’s in and with care put it in your large trash barrel that is also lined with a sealed container so there is no issue there. We are here to clean not create a fifty foot long leak on a carpet or tile floor.
Dusting and Cleaning
Desks, file cabinets, office equipment, phones, chairs are some of the basic items in professional office cleaning services. This can be different from customer to customer.
Carpets, floor mats, etc. Essentially any type of material that gets walked on and thus needing a vacuuming to get rid of the dust and dirt that gets left behind. Spot cleaning a coffee spill is smart to remove as soon as it happens as it is easier then after it has had time to set.
Dust Mop and Damp Mop Hard Surfaced Floors.
This is most often a vinyl tile, ceramic tile or a stone floor (slate, terrazzo, marble, granite, polished cement). Often the vinyl will need “waxing” and buffing or polishing depending on the customer and what he wants. Lunch areas, are a big part of professional office cleaning and will almost always have a vinyl floor and as such will need dust mopping and damp mopping to handle any food and spillage. A microwave will need cleaning inside and out along with a refrigerator needing at least an outside cleaning and depending on the customer a weekly or monthly cleaning of the inside.
Glass cleaning is usually needed to some extent. Many front entry doors are glass and will need cleaning daily to handle hand/fingerprints from daily use of staff and customers entering and exiting throughout the day. Partition glass in a wall or in a interior door also needs to be cleaned or at least touched up to keep it clean. Exterior windows, again depending on the customer may need frequent cleaning if in high profile areas or depending on the need and budget less often, maybe monthly or even quarterly..
Rest Room Cleaning
Just as any thorough cleaning services should, our Los Angeles Office cleaning services include rest rooms, which is a key area for all staff and their customers. This area needs thorough cleaning and sanitizing of the toilets, urinals, sinks, counters, mirrors and floors leaving them all smelling fresh and clean. Using the proper cleaning agents for each item makes a difference. Address odors at its source through cleaning with the proper solutions as well as making sure the air gets exchanged with a proper working ceiling fan. Also if there is a drain on the floor this can be a source of odor and may require an enzyme solution to handle any possible bacteria there.
We specialize in floor care, especially vinyl floors that need floors finishing and polishing. The main floor care procedure is usually referred to as floor waxing, stripping and buffing or burnishing. We will consult with you to give you a program that will keep your tile at the level where you want it or need it. This can be separately billed as requested or built into the monthly program and billed monthly as part of the regular cleaning.
Walls, doors, light switches, etc.: just about anything that gets touched will get dirty, so we clean these items on a regular basis to keep it looking clean. Our motto is: “Get the building to the level the customer wants, then keep it there. That’s what maintenance is all about, maintaining!”
