santa getting ready to clean commercial building

It’s that time of the year again when the sun is shining, Christmas music is celebrated, and people are getting ready for their holiday of the year!

It’s also a time of year to make sure your commercial building is prepared for a safe return after the holidays.

Maintaining a commercial building has its challenges, and with the added pressure of Covid-19, there is no room for taking shortcuts, especially when considering the health and safety of your employees and customers.

However, with some simple and effective preparations, you can start the year 2022 going into business with confidence.

The importance of a safe workplace environment

Creating a safe environment for your employees and customers is essential for doing business. High standards of health and safety practices help promote a professional and safe environment.

A healthy work environment is happier and more productive. A healthy environment also means workers take less sick leave, reducing the huge cost that sick leave places on businesses.

With Covid-19 in our midst, workplace environments need to meet hygiene standards now more than ever. This applies to all workplaces, not just workplaces handling food and beverages.

So, how can you prepare your commercial building for a safe return?

Let’s go in-depth with some effective cleaning preparations that will significantly increase the safety in your commercial building.

Commercial cleaning

Commercial cleaning is more than just a regular residential clean. It digs deeper into the nooks and crannies, sanitising door handles, railings, phones, desks, and anything else that a standard residential clean can miss.

One of the most apparent differences between residential and commercial cleaners is their experience. Commercial cleaners are usually trained to a higher degree, qualified to use specialist equipment, and versed in Health & Safety guidelines.

Commercial cleaning involves more significant, more complex, and more specialised tasks, and it is not appropriate or safe for inexperienced staff to undertake this kind of work.

Commercial cleaners bring larger and more robust pieces of equipment and perform tasks like carpet cleaning, window washing, power cleaning, or hard floor deep cleaning.

If you have a business such as a restaurant, factory, retail store, or office, a commercial clean will offer your commercial building great benefits.

Industrial cleaning

Industrial cleaning is one step again from commercial cleaning.

Industrial cleaning cleans the hazardous areas in industrial facilities such as factories, warehouses, power plants, and other industrial facilities.

Industrial cleaning improves site presentation and meets ongoing health and safety obligations.

A commercial clean will do a deep clean, but an industrial clean will thoroughly sanitise a factory from top to bottom, leaving no dirt, mould, or dust behind.

We cover a wide range of industrial cleaning services, including:

  • Ceiling cavities
  • Cleaning roofs, gutters, and downpipes
  • External building washes
  • Window cleaning
  • High and low pressure washes
  • Paving and concrete washes
  • Floor cleans
  • Fencing, decking and patio washes
  • Workshop and warehouse cleans
  • Silo and tank cleaning
  • Drain cleaning
  • Ducting, shafts and ventilation cleaning
  • Cleaning of high and confined spaces
  • Building and construction tidies
  • Removal of slippery surfaces
  • Stairway cleans
  • School and office cleaning
  • Hotel and motel cleaning
  • Shopping centre commercial cleaning
  • Factory, brewery and mill cleaning

Antimicrobial treatments

If you want a clean that goes that one step further again, then an antimicrobial treatment will certainly give you and your commercial building a safe and reliable clean you can trust.

An antimicrobial treatment is a solution that kills or rapidly slows down the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi such as mould.

The main classes of antimicrobial agents are disinfectants, bleach (which kill a wide range of microbes on non-living surfaces to prevent the spread of illness), antiseptics, sterilizers, and antibiotics.

We cannot see bacteria with the naked eye, so bacteria in food manufacturing plants require specialized chemicals to remove the bacteria.

Bacteria in food manufacturing occurs when protein builds upon surfaces. All surfaces are prone to bacterial growth – floors, walls, ceilings, benches, and manufacturing equipment, and surfaces prove to be breeding grounds for potentially hazardous bacteria.

We cater to all facets of food and beverage manufacturing, and we have vast experience in treating the following:

  • Bakeries
  • Meat and poultry processing plants
  • Dairy factories
  • Wineries
  • Breweries
  • Snack manufacturers
