Snow is light, fluffy and beautiful, but don’t be fooled by its sparkly appearance. The white stuff can wreak havoc on office buildings, especially in towns like Detroit and Cleveland that get frequently ravaged by winter storms. Keep your facility looking great throughout the season by focusing on these three areas and investing in the right cleaning supplies:
1. The Floors
Moisture, sand, debris, rock salt and mud take a toll on floors during the winter months. It’s crucial to maintain yours and prevent scratches so it still looks good come spring. Properly maintaining your floors also increases safety in your facility and reduces the risk of slip-and-fall accidents. Our experts here at Hercules & Hercules recommend investing in floor matting to protect your floors, your employees and your clients.
2. The Carpets
Just like hard-surface floors, your carpets can easily be damaged by winter elements. Increase vacuuming, especially in high traffic areas, to eliminate rock salt and sand that gets tracked into your facility. Entrance mats should be cleaned daily — they are your facility’s first line of defense against moisture!
3. The Windows
Windows often get ignored in the winter months, but keeping them clean is even more important when the days are shorter. Clean windows let in more light! Dirty windows can up your heating bill and degrade faster over time, so make cleaning them a part of your regular winter cleaning routine.
