white office black chairsIf you own a business of any kind, you probably have dozens of tasks you need to complete on any given day. Most proprietors’ to-do lists are a mile long! One facet of your company you don’t need to be overseeing, though, is cleaning. Dealing with your own everyday maintenance can be both tedious and frustrating. That’s where we come in. Our skilled team of janitorial professionals can take the hassle out of cleaning your space.

As you read this brief guide, you will come to understand exactly why it doesn’t make sense to clean your own business. These are not the only reasons, but they are some of the most common; no matter what sort of establishment you run, these issues are likely to impact you if you’ve been trying to keep up with chores without professional assistance.

You’re spending unnecessary money.

As a janitorial service, we have spent a lot of time determining which cleaning products and pieces of equipment are must-haves and which we don’t really need. We know how to spend the least amount of money while still effectively cleaning all kinds of facilities.

You are potentially putting your health at risk.

Some cleaning supplies can react with one another, leading to potentially serious health problems. If you aren’t acutely aware of which combinations are bad for you, you may end up paying a visit to the emergency room. This isn’t worth the risk when services like ours exist.

You are taking time away from your personal life.

Owning your own business is time-consuming enough without trying to clean your building yourself too. Your family has probably sacrificed a great deal of time with you in order for you to pursue your dream of being an entrepreneur. Spend the free time you do have with them and allow us to handle cleaning your business.

You may not be efficient.

Since our janitorial team has years of experience cleaning various commercial spaces, they know how to get through any kind of facility quickly and efficiently, working on tasks in a logical order. Because you don’t have this background, you may be taking far longer than necessary to clean your business and you may not be doing things in the most reasonable progression.

It is easy to fall behind.

When you have numerous other things to do on a daily basis, it’s easy to let cleaning your building fall to the bottom of the list. By the time you get to it, you might be too tired or too distracted to actually do it. This could lead to a dirty facility, which is especially bad if you regularly have clients come into your workspace. We’ll make sure your facility is spotless every day.

Contact us to discuss your needs and to create a cleaning plan that is right for you. We will work with you to customize your program so it fits your unique situation. We look forward to hearing from you!

dirty floors being cleaned by professionalsNo matter what sort of business you operate, the state of the floors in your building is probably the least of your concerns on an everyday basis. You should, perhaps, think about them a bit more, though. It’s entirely possible that dirty floors are actually costing you clients. As you read this article, you will come to understand why this is the case and what you can do about it.

Your industry could play a role.

While it is important to maintain a clean facility regardless of your company’s field, some industries are more cleanliness-centered than others. If, for example, you are a doctor in private practice or you have a restaurant, potential clients will expect your facility to be spotless at all times. If they notice that the floors are dirty, they are likely to walk out and never return.

Word-of-mouth is probably hurting you.

Even if your floors are usually clean, letting them get dirty even for a day or two could cost you, customers. This is because word-of-mouth is still crucial for small businesses, even in today’s technologically advanced world. If someone comes into your establishment while your floors are dirty, they may very well be disgusted enough to tell their friends and family members to avoid coming to your business too.

You might come across as unprofessional.

Having dirty floors in your building might make prospective clients think you simply don’t care about how your business comes across, even if this couldn’t be further from the truth in reality; first impressions are everything, after all. Coming across as unprofessional is a surefire way to lose patrons. People don’t want to trust someone who may or may not know what they are doing, especially with important tasks like tax preparation or estate planning.

The best way to ensure that your business’s floors are never dirty is to hire a professional janitorial service to come into your facility on a regular basis. Our team is highly skilled and has the ability to effectively maintain all sorts of buildings, from conventional offices to assisted living homes. Just let us know what you need, and we will create a cleaning plan that works for you!

carpet cleaningSchool is back in session! That means school administrators and office staff like you are busier than ever. Between handling paperwork, talking to students, and meetings, the last thing you have time for is thoroughly cleaning your desk space on a regular basis. That’s where we come in.

If you’re not convinced you need a janitorial service to assist you in maintaining your school, continue reading to discover some of the benefits you’ll experience.

By trusting our janitorial professionals to keep your space shipshape, you never have to worry about how parents are going to feel about the state of your office area.

Whether you have memos to look at, lesson plans to review for your teachers, newsletters to proof, or documents to sign, you have a lot going on, on your desk. The last thing you need is to worry about keeping your office spotless. By allowing us to clean for you, you can focus on the reason you got into education in the first place: the students.
  3. We will keep things clean over breaks – One of the perks of being in the education field is that you get breaks throughout the year.

If you work with us, you won’t have to worry about this as someone can keep your space in pristine condition while you are out enjoying time with your loved ones.

manufacturingIf you are the manager or owner of a manufacturing facility, you may have never considered hiring a professional janitorial service to clean your plant on a regular basis. The information in this guide will help you understand what our skilled janitorial staff can do for you and your building. Everyone will benefit from working in a more well-maintained space, from upper management to assembly workers. The service offerings that are detailed below are not an exhaustive list of what we can do for you. In fact, we will work with you to create a plan that is ideal for your manufacturing facility’s unique needs.

We will clean the floors.

The flooring throughout your facility probably gets dirty on a daily basis. While this is unsightly, certainly, it can also be dangerous. If, for example, a liquid substance gets spilled on the floor and isn’t cleaned up, your employees could slip and fall. Even dust can cause workers to lose their footing. Any employee injuries can lead to reduced morale and legal issues for your company. Furthermore, clean floors are simply more sanitary than those that are allowed to remain grungy and dirty.

We will remove old boxes and production materials.

It is not uncommon for manufacturing plants to have a lot of boxes and trash pile-up every day. Sometimes, these goods are not disposed of in a timely fashion. Our janitorial professionals will make sure that any items of this nature are recycled or otherwise gotten rid of appropriately. This will save you and your staff time and prevent stacks of boxes and garbage from forming in your halls.

We will make sure every room is clean.

Sometimes, when you’re trying to keep a manufacturing facility clean and functional without professional help, it’s easy to neglect spaces that aren’t used all the time. This may include storage closets, server rooms, and even out-of-the-way bathrooms. Once you hire us, though, you can rest assured that all areas of your building will be cleaned and maintained to a high standard.

We will maintain your exterior too.

If you’ve been trying to keep up with your facility’s cleanliness without a dedicated janitorial company’s aid, the outside of the building has probably fallen by the wayside. We will make sure your manufacturing plant makes a good first impression by picking up litter, emptying outdoor trash cans, cleaning windows, and doing other similar tasks.

We look forward to hearing from you and are excited to create a schedule that works for your business. We take great pride in what we do, so you can trust that our team will work with the utmost professionalism and will keep your facility looking great for you and your staff every day.

carpet cleaning You may be surprised to find that cleaning your office carpet is a different experience than cleaning your carpet at home. Due to the attention to detail and specific products that are needed, it’s highly recommended to call on the services of an experienced janitorial company who has the expertise to thoroughly clean your carpet. If you’ve been trying to save money by cleaning your office carpets alone, you could be damaging your office more by using the wrong products and techniques.

If you haven’t yet contacted a commercial cleaning company in the Greater Boston Area, here’s some advice from the professionals.

Deep Cleanings are Needed: While vacuuming consistently is a huge help, you won’t be removing 100% of the debris. This means that any left-over debris and dirt gets into the carpet and tears away at the carpet fiber, in turn, degrading the carpet.

Carpet Does Not Need to be Visibly Dirty: Even if there isn’t dirt or stains on the carpet, the carpet is still filthy if it’s not cleaned daily. Because you see the carpet every day you most likely won’t notice it deteriorating…your guests and clients will. Why risk having others notice a dirty carpet in your office?

Avoid a Traditional Stand Up Vacuum: Offices are crowded so vacuuming with a traditional upright vacuum that you use at home just won’t cut it. A lightweight HEPA  (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) backpack vacuum that straps on your back is ideal for spaces filled with desks, bookshelves, furniture, etc. This also ensures that you clean every possible area of your office.

Bonnet Cleaning is Good, but Not Great: Hotels and businesses can certainly benefit from bonnet cleaning, but this only cleans the top layer of the carpet. In fact, any dirt beneath the carpet will end up rising up to the surface in a matter of time. This means the carpet is just going to be left soiled again. Additionally, bonnet cleaning can create a chemical residue buildup from the pressure of the machine which could potentially lock in more dirt.

Contact Professional Commercial Cleaners for Carpet Cleaning

The team at Clean Facilities Group Inc. delivers fast, efficient and high-quality results, whether it’s mopping, vacuuming, carpet extracting or dusting. Our team will thoroughly clean your place of business so you can spend time managing your company.

restroom cleaning If you’re still in the process of looking for a professional janitorial company in the Greater Boston Area and need some tips on commercial restroom cleaning, we’ve provided several tips and tricks below. Whether you have a small office with a private bathroom or a large corporate office with multiple stalls, cleaning the restroom should be done thoroughly and correctly to ensure germs do not spread.

  1. Take Caution with a Wet Floor Sign

When cleaning the restroom, you must always have a wet floor sign available, whether at the entrance or surrounding the area you’re cleaning. If you do not post this sign, there could be serious injuries which your company is liable for.

  1. Refill Supplies Daily

There’s nothing more frustrating than not having paper towels to dry your hands or walking over to the sink only to find there is no soap. Make sure supplies are always fully stalked for employees, especially toilet paper. You don’t want to lower office morale from something as frivolous as restroom supplies.

  1. Sinks & Countertops Must Be Cleaned

While this may seem obvious, some cleaning companies will only give the counters a quick wipe. You should use disinfectants and sprays designed for the bathroom to rid the bathroom of germs. Don’t forget to clean the mirror as well!

  1. Ring Out Rags

When chemicals are dispersed into rags, it’s critical to ring these out after use to drain out any excess. Rags should also be placed in a container separate than other cleaning materials such as cloths, mops, sponges, etc.

  1. Use Disinfectant When Cleaning Toilets & Urinals

Always apply disinfectant to bowls before cleaning. Flush each toilet so there is no contamination, and this also lets you see if they are working properly. In regard to urinals, always wear gloves when removing debris and make sure urinal screens are replaced as needed.

  1. Remove Sanitary Napkins

This is actually something that goes unnoticed far too often. When taking out the trash, go into the stalls to empty the trash cans that are designed specifically for sanitary napkins. Remove these and replace the liners right away.

  1. Top to Bottom Dusting

Dusting can be a bit more complex than you may think. Following the top to bottom rule ensures everything is completely dust free.  Begin dusting the ceiling corners, wall vents, door frames and light fixtures using a long-handled duster. This can be done a couple times a week.

clean desk with plantThe paint color, office décor, furniture, and layout are all major influencers when it comes to the overall atmosphere of the office, but have you ever factored in the smell? Many business owners aim to keep their office in pristine condition but if the office is gorgeous and the scent is making employees uncomfortable, this could seriously affect company morale. The professional commercial cleaners at Clean Facilities Group Inc. will discuss everything you need to know to keep your office smelling fresh.

  1. Empty Garbage Bins Daily

It’s impossible to avoid using the garbage bins at work but don’t let it overflow. While this may come as a surprise, forgetting to empty the trash bins is not uncommon.

  1. Hot Water Extract Carpets

There could be a multitude of foul odors coming from your carpets due to spills and stains that have not been properly cleaned. In order to fully remove the bad odors, a pre-spray must be applied to the entire carpet followed by a complete hot water extraction to remove the soil and odor.

  1. Keep Sponges Out of the Sink

The breakroom is used often and when employees scrub their dishes, they have a tendency to leave the sponge in the sink which can leave an awful odor. Purchase a sponge holder to keep things sanitary.

  1. Stick with Mild Scents

Avoid using scents that are overpowering or you could be making the office smell a lot worse. Try making your own essential oils by using scents like lemon, vanilla, lavender or orange.

  1. Get an Office Plant

Believe it or not, office plants purify the air and they can improve the overall mood of the office. Don’t overdo it by purchasing bouquets of flowers but make sure to get an English ivy, Areca Palm, Lady Palm or Bamboo Pal.

Contact Our Commercial Cleaners to Have Your Office Smelling Fresh

At Clean Facilities Group Inc., we have been providing a variety of offices in Massachusetts with exceptional janitorial services. Although you can follow the steps above, your office is guaranteed to smell fresh when you hire a professional janitorial team. We use the best products available and thoroughly train our cleaners, so you can focus on work. Let us handle the cleaning to ensure your office remains in top-quality condition.

You should always be mindful of how clean your office environment is, but when it comes to medical office buildings, spray and wipe tactics just won’t cut it. Medical offices revolve around the health of the patients and to avoid cross-contamination you’ll need professional cleaners to step in. Make sure to consider the following before you get involved in medical office cleaning.

Cleaning Products Geared Toward Medical Offices: OSHA has requirements on how medical offices should be cleaned and certain disinfectants need to be used. While offices do enjoy green cleaning products, they usually aren’t strong enough for medical offices.

Hire a Team with Extensive Training: When hiring a professional commercial cleaning team, you’ll want to make sure they follow various healthcare requirements. The correct cleanup of syringes, bandages, medical waste, etc. must be used to ensure everything is up to the EPA’s regulations.

Cleaning Staff Should Have the Proper Shots: Prior to cleaning, the professional cleaners should have their Hepatitis B vaccinations and all other mandatory shots.

Commercial Cleaners Use Correct Strategies: From following bathroom cleaning protocols to using medical-grade disinfection systems, janitorial cleaners have extensive experience cleaning medical offices.

Below are several common issues medical offices face without the help of a janitorial crew:

  • The restroom isn’t cleaned or stocked with paper towels & toilet paper
  • Dust builds up on desks, cubicles, computers, and windowsills
  • Carpets are stained and soiled
  • Improper disinfecting and sanitation

When a janitorial company is not utilized, the medical office can become extremely dirty which leads to a high employee turnover rate and loss of patients. If you’re currently looking for a janitorial cleaning company for your medical office, make sure you ask the following questions:

  • What services do you provide?
  • What types of products do you use?
  • Do you have references?
  • Is the pricing competitive?
  • How long have you been in business?

Contact Clean Facilities Group, Inc.

Clean Facilities Group, Inc. has years of experience professionally cleaning medical offices around Massachusetts. To get in touch with the expert janitorial staff, please contact 781.894.4828.

polish tile floors Keeping your office in pristine condition takes hard work and dedication, that is, if you don’t have a reliable cleaning company to get the job done. While it’s important to make sure the front entrance of your office is up to date and you have a space that is welcoming to potential clients, burnishing the floors should never be dismissed. Clean floors actually impact the overall look and feel of your business, but, how often should you burnish your office floors? Read more to find out.

Floors should be burnished every week depending on how much foot traffic and debris gets tracked inside. It is crucial that the floors are dry mopped and wet mopped every day to prevent dirt from scratching and dulling the floor surface.

Polishing Marble Floors

Marble, limestone and travertine tend to lose their shine much quicker than hardwood. In fact, marble floors can start wearing down within days if there is a lot of foot traffic. However, if dirt, sand and other debris are wiped from the floor each day, your polish is going to last much, much longer. To keep your polish in tact for as long as possible, avoid cleaners that are not specifically designed for marble flooring.

Polishing Hardwood Floors

First, it’s important to note that polishing and refinishing are completely different. When you polish the floor, you’re keeping the finish in good condition. When you refinish the floor, you’re removing the finish and replacing. Similar to marble floors, how often you polish the hardwood floors depends on the foot traffic. These can also be polished every 2-4 months.

Polishing Ceramic Tile Floors

Ceramic tile floors can be polished every 1-4 months, but you must make sure you’re routinely mopping and sweeping. Polishing these types of floors restores the protective layers and it’s a quite quick and simple process.

Polishing Laminate Floors

Laminate floors are extremely popular in homes and commercial spaces because they come in a wide-range of colors, they’re low maintenance and the price is very affordable. Over time, laminate floors can lose their shine so it’s important to polish these every few months. Due to dirt buildup and grime, that nice shine can easily fade so make sure you’re washing the floors at least once a week. Use a cleaning product designed for laminate floors to make them look brand new.

Are you in need of professional floor polishing for your office? Contact the team at Clean Facilities Group Inc. We have a commercial cleaning team ready to make your floors shine.

flu seasonFlu season is in full swing and while most of us take the proper precautions to ensure we do not get the flu, this year vaccinations have fallen short. In fact, as of February 24, there were 23,324 flu-associated hospitalizations, according to CNN. This year we’ve seen a significant increase in flu cases but there is plenty we can do to get proactive about combatting this illness.

Did you know that flu viruses survive on surfaces for nearly 48 hours if they are not disinfected? Let’s explore why your company should invest in janitorial services to beat this year’s horrific flu season.

Cleaning Germ-Heavy Spots: Germs are commonly found in offices, specifically on doorknobs, light switches, water coolers, telephones and staircase railings. Far too often people miss these areas when cleaning and since these spots are constantly being used, germs quickly spread.

Safe Cleaning Methods & Products: Many over-the-counter products won’t fully eliminate germs. While they do leave a pleasant scent and they are strong enough to remove stains and residue, a strong disinfectant cleaner is needed to wipe out all bacteria.

Regular Cleaning: When businesses don’t rely on janitorial services, cleaning important areas falls by the wayside. Commercial cleaners ensure that your space is fully cleaned on a regular basis, helping to prevent germs from spreading and ensuring your office in top-notch condition.

 

What Your Office Can Do to Avoid the Flu

Although the flu isn’t truly unavoidable, your office can get proactive to decrease their likelihood of catching the flu.

  • Discuss the importance of vaccination with your co-workers/employees
  • Hang informative posters in restrooms with hygiene tips
  • Send out a memo reminding employees about the flu
  • Change your HVAC system so your office has good ventilation
  • Make sure you are reading up-to-date flu information
  • Remind employees to stay home if they feel under the weather

We make sure our staff implements new practices and has undergone the proper safety training.
