Keeping a commercial property clean can take a lot of time so ensuring your cleaning as efficiently as possible will save you time, money, and frustration. By being more efficient in the mundane tasks of cleaning, you will be able to increase your profit margins as you have more time to focus on the other aspects of your business that will help you make more money.
Clean more efficiently with these tips.
When your employees communicate effectively and efficiently, you’re able to eliminate redundancies that can cause them to clean less efficiently. On days of heavy cleaning, have a quick check-in before cleaning tasks are started and make sure to highlight any accomplishments from the day before and cleaning priorities for the day.
Use Better Cleaning Equipment
Implementing better cleaning processes and utilizing better cleaning equipment is an easy way to ensure your facility is being cleaned more efficiently. Consider the following tips.
- Once you start cleaning, try to avoid backtracking into other rooms to retrieve a cleaning solution or dust cloth. It will utilize time that you could have spent cleaning. Be mindful of putting these items down so you don’t forget them!
- Clean from top to bottom to eliminate having to clean surfaces twice. This will help you clean the space faster and before long, all of your cleaning tasks will be completed.
- Use a manual or battery-powered sweeper to pick up dirt, debris, and dust from your facility, sidewalk, and parking lot to ensure a positive first impression for those visiting your facility.
- Let chemicals do their work. Oftentimes, chemicals and other products need to sit for a little bit to work properly. If you rush the process, you’re going to need to re-clean the surface, which takes time.
Maintain Your Cleaning Equipment
Keeping your cleaning equipment, especially your sweepers, properly maintained will lengthen its lifespan and reduce the extra costs associated with major repairs. If you notice your sweeper isn’t working as efficiently as it should be, make sure you or a qualified professional diagnosis the problem sooner rather than later.
