Doing some basic house work can reduce a lot of allergy triggers and help alleviate the symptoms that coincide. Knowing which chores to tackle and a few tips along the way can improve the situation and what to avoid that might provoke allergies. We at Baker Sandoval Cleaning would like to elaborate on cleaning for allergy season.

Cleaning for Dust Allergy Sufferers

Vacuuming: Ensure your vacuum is equipped with a HEPA filter because allergens are tine and pass through the standard vacuum filters easily. Basically, with a standard filter, the vacuum sucks up the allergens to only shoot them back out again. The high-traffic areas should be vacuumed daily, or as often as possible, and low traffic areas vacuumed 1-2 times a week. The more often the better.
Clearing clutter: The piles of clothes and linens as well as boxes, mail, catalogs, and magazines collect dust and pollen as well as attract dust must and roaches. Removing the clutter and keeping it under control can help significantly.
Bathrooms: Mold is a common allergy trigger. The bathroom needs to be cleaned routinely to avoid mold and mildew buildup. Scrub the shower, sinks, tubs, and especially the grout regularly in addition to the shower curtain and floor mats.
Patios: The front and back entrance ways outside should be cleaned frequently. Sweeping the area is ideal and scheduling a periodic power wash can also keep the dust and pollens under control.
Dampen cloths and mops: Using dampened clothes and mops as you clean will trap the dust and allergens as opposed to knocking them into the air.
Wash sheets: Washing the sheets weekly in warm temperatures of at least 130 F. The dust mites will be destroyed at this temperature. Any children with allergies should also have their stuff animals washed as well.
Avoid scented cleaners and detergents: Fragrances in cleaners and detergents can trigger allergy symptoms; opt for fragrance-free products.
No air-drying laundry: Clothes left outside to air dry can collect pollens and mold spores, triggering allergies, it is better to just dry them in the dryer.
Area rugs: If the rugs, door mats and runners are old, consider replacing them. If they are relatively new, ensure they are regularly vacuumed and professionally cleaned.
Window Treatments: Dust of the blinds and make sure the curtains and drapes are washed often to remove the collected dust.
No shoes: Consider enforcing wearing no shoes indoors. By having your family remove their shoes at the door you can avoid tracking in a lot of pollens and allergens.
Pets: Get furry pets bathed and brushed frequently.
Change filters: Remember to change your filters once a month to cut down on allergens and spare hardships on your system.

The more frequently you do the cleaning, the less allergy triggers can assault you. When you need help containing the allergens, call Baker Sandoval Cleaning and let our specialists deep clean your home or office for you.

When you let in-house commercial cleaning take care of the duties, there are some things that get neglected and they become fairly obvious when the spring/summer sun beams down and illuminates the dust and grime that have built up over several months. Having a clean presentation of your establishment, however, is essential for your business to make a good impression among clients, colleagues, and staff because how you represent your business is how you represent yourself. We at Baker Sandoval Cleaning would like to point out the most common locations that are often neglected in the commercial cleaning, that our experts are always sure to clean.

Places Most Often Missed when Employees Do Commercial Cleaning

1) Behind copy machines, printers, fax machines, etc: Printers, copy machines, fax machines and so on, do not only collect dust behind the electronic equipment, but the devices designed to make copies also leave tiny particles of ink and toner buildup that quickly accumulate.
2) Baseboards: Baseboards are commonly forgotten during the cleaning, not really part of the floor, but low enough to be out of sight during the dusting, they collect dust and debris. Additionally, countertop and backsplashes are also not cleaned the way they should be and the dust and grime will make the breakroom less than sanitary.
3) Vents: During the winter months, the heating system is constantly running, resulting in the dust, allergens, and other debris to adhere to the vents where few think to wipe them down. Ceiling vents and exhaust fans in the kitchens and bathrooms are also sadly neglected.
4) Ceiling tiles: Many commercial buildings are aligned with acoustic ceiling tiles that have the rough textures, making the dust easily collect easily to the surface and they are also prone to the dark stains if not regularly maintained.
5) Ceiling fan blades and light fixtures: Ceiling fan blades and light fixtures are rarely remembered when it comes to the dusting and polishing and when people are waiting around and looking, their eyes frequently travel upward and the swirling filth and dead insects can be quite the eye sore.
6) Walls and frames: After running your hand along the wall, you may notice the dust on your fingers. High traffic areas could also be especially built up in addition to smudges and fingerprints and other spots. Whether the walls are painted, textured, or wallpapered, the debris can build easily. The frames, being usually strategically placed on the wall, are often forgotten, having the same collection of dust and debris marring the other immaculate room, hallway, or lobby.
7) Steps: It doesn’t matter what is covering the surface of your steps; luxury tile, carpet, hardwood, or runners, dust isn’t the only thing settling on the surface but also everything being tracked in on the bottom of shoes and few in-house cleaning associates pay it any mind.
8) Switch plates and door knobs: So many diseases, bacteria, and germs are being spread because of these highly touched places. Where these areas should be the first places being disinfected at minimum, on a daily basis, most are leaving them to fest for months if not years at a time. Within hours, the germs on a door knob can spread to everyone in the office within hours.
9). Office kitchen: Where the kitchen is likely to get a surface clean, the fridge and microwave and probably even the coffee maker are most likely neglected; all of which should have all along been cleaned regularly.
10) Upholstery, Furniture, Office Chairs, Etc: Upholstered furniture, front and back of the chairs, the wood or metal framing, and the cabinets are subject dust, allergens, contagions, and even sweat and other contaminates.
11) Indoor plants: No matter if the plants inside your business are artificial or real, dust still builds up and cob webs will still form and the filth will escalate of not taken care of properly.

Taking care of the bathrooms is a never-ending job. Because they are constantly being used they are in continual need of attention. Having a cleaning guide to ensure nothing is neglected can help you ensure the bathroom is thoroughly cleaned. Below, we at Baker Sandoval Cleaning have compiled a bathroom cleaning guide to help you get your bathroom deep cleaned.

Best Bathroom Cleaning Tips

1) Start by removing the trash can, rugs, and any toiletries you keep on the countertops or in the shower. Removing them will make cleaning easier and it will also make certain you are cleaning around them.
2) After everything is removed gather your cleaning paraphernalia including your latex rubber gloves, mask if your sensitive to the cleaners, disinfectant, toilet bowl cleaner, scrubbing brush, and so on.
3) Drop the toilet bowl cleaner in the bowl so it can start doing its work and spray the shower and/or tub down with the appropriate cleaner so it can loosen the soap scum. Let the chemicals sit according to the label’s directions.
4) While the cleaner sits, go to the cabinets and drawers and remove the clutter. Toss the trash and expired products. Wipe down the shelves and drawers and replace the items. An all purpose cleaner and a damp cleaner should be adequate, be sure to follow up with a dry rag to wipe away the moisture before replacing the contents. Use your disinfectant to wipe the knobs.
5) Apply the disinfectant on the exterior of the toilet including the tank and bowl and scrub the inside first; after the inside is scrubbed, flush and use a few paper towels to wipe the exterior include the handle and lid to avoid recontamination and toss the paper towels.
6) Reapply the tile and grout cleaner to the shower and scrub the grout and tile well with scrub brush; you may need to use a designated toothbrush to get the corners and edges. Wash the tub out with the appropriate cleaner and be sure to rinse the cleaner from the shower walls and tub.
7) Use your favorite glass cleaner to wipe down the mirrors. Polish the light fixtures and dust the exhaust vent.
8) Disinfect the sink and countertops.
9) Sweep the floors well, ensuring you get the corners and edges well.
10) Fill a bucket with a water and ¼ cup of all-purpose cleaner and mop the floors.
11) If the towels and floor mat needed a washing, be sure they are laundered and dried before re-hanging and replacing.
12) Replace the garbage can and toiletries after wiping them down.
13) To clear the air of the chemical smell, flip on the exhaust fan.
As the moisture builds up in the bathroom, mold and mildew can potentially grow. It is important that you kick on the exhaust fan during your shower and about 30 minutes after to minimize the risk. Wiping down the shower after use and fanning out the shower curtain for proper drying also helps reduce the risk of mildew and mold growth.

Athletic club, gyms, and fitness centers have a lot of human traffic going in and out. Given the nature of the facility, it will also require daily cleaning. To have a clean and sanitized center, it is recommended to have a professional cleaning service come every day and give a top to bottom cleaning. Baker Sandoval Cleaning services would like to share the benefits and need for a professional cleaning service for all fitness centers.

Gym Cleanliness Standards

Since gyms and fitness centers have a lot of people coming in and out to work out, it is easily understood that they accumulate a lot of germs. Luckily, most gyms offer hand sanitizers to help keep the facility as clean as possible. However, at the end of the day, the gym needs to be cleaned from the day’s use. When a gym is professionally cleaned, it is important to wipe down all of the equipment with sanitizing cleaners to ensure there are no germs left. Floors, walls, and mirrors are also cleaned in fitness centers. Mirrors need to be crystal clear to help your customers focus on their form as they work out. As your clients use the facility, they’ll drip sweat on the equipment and floor which is why it is important for the training areas to be cleaned with detail to ensure the training area and equipment is clean for the next day.

Shower & Bathroom Cleaning at Fitness Centers

It is equally important to have the locker rooms, showers, and bathrooms cleaned as well. Bathrooms require a special amount of time and detail due to the nature of the area. The shower stalls need to be cleaned along with toilets, sinks, mirrors, and floors. The walls need to be wiped down and kept very clean. Lockers or shower rooms equally need to be cleaned with the rest of the facility.

Clean Athletic Club Office

Another major area that can get overlooked is the office and registration area. When a new customer comes to your gym or athletic club, they want to know that they facility is well taken care of and kept clean. Even if your training areas, bathrooms, showers and locker rooms are spotless and smell fresh and clean, when it comes time to sign up a customer, it says a lot about the business ethics if the office area is dirty and unkept. Show off your business ethic with a clean and orderly office. Show potential customers you care about every aspect of your business.
