This is the time of year when everyone is trying their best to stay away from whatever’s “going around”, and it can be a tall order when you work in an office with several other people. It doesn’t take long for sickness to tear through an office or workplace, and it seems like there isn’t anything you can do about it. Baker Sandoval Cleaning is here to share some tips to keep your office or workplace clean and free from germs.

Where Are Germs Found the Most? Disinfect Communal Hot Spots

It is rather easy to keep your little cubical and private space clean and free from germs. The problem areas are often places like bathrooms and breakrooms as well as machinery, light switches, knobs and handles that everyone in the office is touching. You would think the bathroom is the place you should be most concerned about, but think again. The breakroom of any workplace is often the space that is the most germ infested. This is the area where people are eating and spending a lot of time without washing their hands. Copy machines, land line phones and lobby counters etc are all things that are touched by several people in one day. Wiping down these surfaces with disinfecting wipes can be a great way to get rid of lingering germs. To make your own disinfecting wipes use a stack of paper towels and place them in a container. You will want to mix up a solution that consists of ½ cup bleach a 2 ½ cups water, then pour over the top of the paper towels. Wiping surfaces with these wipes will kill unwanted germs.

Wipe Down Your Desk & Work Area Every Day

Even though you think you are the only one that is using your desk and bringing germs into that area, you are most likely mistaken. Wiping down your desk area each day will help stop the spread of germs.

Train Employees to Wash & Scrub Hands Often

It is a proven fact that the best way to eliminate the spread of germs is with proper hand washing. Creating this basic habit will go a long way in reducing the spread of germs at your workplace. Teaching employees the importance of hand washing is key.

Air Purifying Indoor Plants Clean the Air & Remove Toxins

There are several plants that can be placed in the workplace to improve indoor air quality and help employees remain healthy. Some plants to consider are:
• Peace Lily
• English Ivy
• Gerbera Daisies
• Bamboo Palm
• Chrysanthemum
Not only will these plants clean the air, but they will add an organic design to your office space as well.

When you are running a school there is a lot of cleaning that needs to be done. Depending on the age of the children at the school there are particular kinds of cleaning that will be necessary. The ages of the kids differ between the types of school and so do the activities and messes that are left behind. Janitorial services will come in and clean the school based on what is needed.
 

Baker Sandoval Cleaning Outlines the Different Levels Of Cleaning Needed for Childcare Settings & Schools

Guidelines for Cleaning A Daycare, Childcare or Preschool: When having a janitorial cleaning service come into a preschool, there is a lot that has to be done to keep it sanitary and clean. Some of the cleaners that are used can be irritants to some small children. At this level of school you are dealing with kids that are quite young and they tend to be sick more often. The immune system of a young child is not as great as an older child. That means that the flu and cold germs tend to be more abundant than in schools where older children learn. The cleaning service needs to be more accurate and all areas need to be disinfected to kill the germs that cause illness. This is the best way to keep the school healthy as well as the teachers and students present.
Duties for Cleaning An Elementary School: One thing that sets an elementary school apart from a high school or even a preschool is that one set of students stays in a particular room for the day. The kids are a bit older and are able to withstand some illness. Disinfecting is still necessary and the bigger issue are the bathrooms and cafeteria lunch rooms. The bathrooms need to be cleaned and obviously restocked regularly to keep them functioning. Garbage cans can be filled up fast and will need to be taken out each day. The school will need to have the main cleaning done at night or while the kids are not at the school to avoid distractions. Another area is to ensure that the carpets and flooring is clean by vacuuming and mopping regularly. The floors can be full of debris from pencil shavings, trash and dirt. The floors will keep the classrooms looking their best.
Standards for Cleaning A High School: A high school is a place that also needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. The janitorial service will need to empty out trash bins as well as clean the floors similar to an elementary school. The biggest difference when cleaning a high school is that there are older kids and the possibility that graffiti, gum and other substances can be on the walls and other surfaces. These will need to be cleaned and removed from the school. The bathrooms are always a big concern when cleaning a high school. The kids use the bathrooms to get ready and hang out so they need extra attention.

Rentals see many residents, and if you are moving into one, you are never certain about the diligence they implemented in their cleaning habits, nor know the extent the owners performed to clean and sanitize your new home. On the other hand, it may be time for you to move on to greener pastures and ditch the old rental, but you want your deposit back and to leave on a good note. Or you may own a rental property and feel an obligation to have the home clean and ready for the new tenants.

A) Cleaning Apartment or House Rental Kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the home for many families and as a result gets the most abuse. Meals are prepared and consumed, crafts and goodies are often completed on the counter spaces and tables, homework, school projects, and work projects get finished, and other harmonious activities often transpire. With that in mind, the kitchen is one of the prime locations of the home that needs work. Besides the obvious, below are a few items to clean and sanitize during your cleaning endeavors.

2. Garbage disposals requires monthly cleaning and odds are, never happened or is at least overdue. Freeze some vinegar in an ice tray and run it down the garbage disposal along with either lemon or orange peelings while the cool water is running.
3. Dishwashers are neglected too often and need some cleaning. Run the dishwasher on empty using lemonade powder and dishwasher detergent. with the citrus acid in the mix your dishwasher will be clean and deodorized.
B) Cleaning Closets and Other Storage Spaces. The storage places and closets are frequently neglected. Normally all you need to do is wipe down the walls, shelves, and tend to the floor thoroughly.
C) Dusting & Washing Walls. If the landlord insisted on repainting the walls you don’t have to worry about any cleaning. Otherwise years of dust, fingerprints, and anything else little ones might leave behind have accumulated and need to be washed. Dust the ceilings, and sanitize the outlets and light switches, be sure to use precaution when cleaning around electrical switches and outlets.
D) Baseboards, Doors & Trim Cleaning. Wipe down all the baseboards, doors, and trim to free it of dust.
E) Cleaning Bathroom. The bathroom is a place where a lot of hygiene practices are done and a lot of collected moisture builds up, which creates a lot of mildew and mold among other contaminates.
1. Spray concentrated vinegar generously on the surfaces soap scum and hard water stains found on the shower and tub, and wipe away clean.
2. For a better clean, combine 1 cup of vinegar in a toilet bowl and allow it to set over night. Come the morning, you can scrub everything away.
3. Mildew stains on grout can be dealt with baking soda. Sprinkle on the mildew, and with an old toothbrush, brush clean.
4. If the showerhead needs attention, unscrew the head and allow soaking in a container of vinegar over night. Rinse thoroughly while using the old toothbrush to gently scrub off any remnants. If the head doesn’t unscrew just wrap a baggy filled with vinegar, and secure it over the showerhead with a rubber band.

When we go to gym we don’t really think of all the sweat that gets left behind. Moist sweat creates the perfect conditions for bacteria and other germs to thrive. Bacteria and germs get moved from one piece of equipment to the next and from the locker room to workout areas. This presents a cleaning challenge to all athletic gyms and fitness facilities but fortunately there is an easy solution; hire a professional cleaning service like Baker Sandoval Cleaning!

Members Expect & Demand a Clean Fitness Center & Gym Equipment

If your facility isn’t clean, your members won’t feel as if they matter and you’ll want your facility clean when potential clients come into the gym. You can lose potential customers if the place smells like old sweat and body odor and if it shows signs of needing a good clean. Hygiene is very important in a gym. There are other reasons that clients expect a clean gym. People feel safe in a clean environment. They also feel more confidence in your business as well as your employees. Members feel important if you make the effort to maintain cleanliness. If they feel this way, they’re likely to come back and refer others to your business too.

Your Gym May Be Harboring Germs that Cause Skin Rashes, Athlete’s Foot & Other Infections

Members come to a gym to get healthy, not become sick if germs and bacteria are lurking. Damp, humid conditions are the perfect breeding ground for germs and infection. Your staff will use less sick days if they don’t become ill at work. Fitness facilities that are poorly maintained can lead to sickness and health issues, from a mild case of athlete’s foot to flu outbreaks. Athlete foot outbreaks should not be taken lightly. The fungus that causes it can lead to other fungal infections that can be transferred easily from person to person via bodily fluids.

Why You Should Hire Professional Cleaning Services for Your Gym Facility or Fitness Center

We are called professionals for a reason! We are trained and have the experience to get your gym clean and looking its best. This means your facility will not only be clean, but safe and healthy too. Are you trying to decide if it’s worth it? Make a list of all the duties that would need to be done by your staff and look at the total cost of assigning these duties to them along with the cost of supplies and equipment along with the cost to replenish the supplies. And don’t forget the negative effect on morale and self worth of your trainers and other staff. Consider the job your staff will do versus a professional cleaning service. The reason professionals are so effective and efficient is because of the supplies and equipment they use as well as knowledge and experience. It’s our job and it’s all we do, so it makes sense that we’re great at it. You’re getting a full-time custodian instead of a member of your staff taking a turn with a mop. Another consideration is the flexibility of being able to have a professional come in during non-peak or after business hours depending on whether you run a 24-hour facility to get the job done. This makes it better for your customers too as there is a clean facility with no interruptions.

How Much Does Fitness Facility Cleaning Cost?

There are variables to take into account that will determine how much this service will cost. The size of the building, its location and what you’re expecting out of the service will affect the cost. Commercial cleaners will either charge an hourly rate or by the square foot. If you will be utilizing deeper cleanings, like for carpets or rugs, windows and VCT floor waxing, the cost will rise.
