A deep clean is a comprehensive cleaning process that involves thoroughly cleaning and sanitising a space. This type of cleaning is usually performed by professional cleaning services to ensure that all areas of a premises are cleaned to a high standard.
Having vast experience in all types of cleaning, we’ve put together a guide about what a professional deep clean entails.
First and foremost, a professional deep clean involves a thorough inspection of the premises. This allows the cleaners to identify any areas that require special attention or may need additional cleaning. They will also determine the type of cleaning products and equipment that will be required.
Deep cleaning usually includes the thorough cleaning of:
- Ledges, windows sills, light fittings and on top of cupboards and cabinets
- HVAC vent covers
- Windows inside and out, frames and panes
- Ceiling Fans
- Carpets, upholstery, and soft furnishings
- Hard floors
- Doors and doorframes
- Underneath all furniture and appliances
- All equipment
- TVs, monitors, and CCTV cameras
- Cabinets and drawers, inside and out
- Behind radiators
- All kitchen appliances
- All walls
- Bathrooms, toilets, sinks, taps, tiles (descaling may be required), and grouting
Once the inspection is complete, the cleaning team will begin the cleaning process. This usually starts with removing any clutter or debris from the area. This can include removing furniture, appliances, and other items that may obstruct the cleaning process. The cleaners will then clean and dust all surfaces, including walls, ceilings, and floors. This involves removing any cobwebs or dust that may have accumulated. The cleaners may also use a specialised cleaning solution to remove any stains or marks from the walls.
Next the cleaners will focus on cleaning the floors. This can involve sweeping and/or vacuuming, and mopping, depending on the type of flooring in the space. If there are any stains or spills on the floor, the cleaners will use specialised or professional grade cleaning products to remove them.
The next step in the cleaning process is to clean the windows and mirrors. This involves using a specialised cleaning solution to remove any streaks or smudges from the glass. The cleaners will also clean any frames or sills around the windows, and mirrors placed in communal areas.
Once the surfaces have been cleaned, the cleaners will focus on sanitising the space. This involves using a disinfectant solution to kill any germs or bacteria that may be present. The cleaners will pay special attention to high-touch areas such as doorknobs, light switches, desks, and countertops.
Finally, the cleaners will perform a final inspection of the space to ensure that everything has been cleaned to their satisfaction. They will also make any final touches to ensure that the space is ready for use.
In addition to the above steps, a professional deep clean may also include other services such as carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and window washing. These additional services can be added to the cleaning package based on their need.
It is important to note that a deep clean is different from a regular cleaning service. While regular cleaning services are designed to maintain a space on a regular basis, a deep clean is a more comprehensive cleaning process that is usually performed less frequently.
How often should the office be deep cleaned?
There are no rules about how frequently a business premises should be deep cleaned, but as a guide we’d recommend every quarter. A deep clean is easier to carry out after business hours so that your cleaners can have full access to all areas, without being disruptive to your staff.
As the business owner, it’s down to you to decide how frequently you’d like a deep clean, but we recommend a full risk assessment to identify what is needed. Weekends or holiday shutdowns make the ideal time for this type of work to be carried out, but most professional cleaning contractors will be able to allot a time suitable for everyone.
How do we benefit from a deep clean?
There are several benefits to having a deep clean carried out, including:
- Improved air quality – Over time, dust, dirt, and other particles can accumulate in any workspace. A deep clean can help remove these pollutants, improving the air quality and reducing the risk of respiratory issues.
- Increased productivity – A clean and organised workspace can help employees feel more focused and motivated, leading to increased productivity. It can also help reduce distractions and create a more pleasant working environment.
- Reduced sick days – A professional deep clean coupled with regular cleaning can help reduce the spread of germs and bacteria, leading to fewer sick days and a healthier workforce.
- Extended lifespan of equipment – Dust and debris can accumulate on office equipment, such as computers and printers, which can lead to malfunctions and a shorter lifespan. Regular cleaning can help prevent this.
- Improved aesthetic – A clean and tidy office can create a positive impression on clients and visitors, making the business appear more professional and trustworthy.
