This time of year, we usually get one request more than any others…any guesses as to what that is? “Can you add an extra cleaning to my schedule?” There are many reasons why we are asked this, but we want to highlight two for you here: Your Flooring Retail stores, offices, and other commercial property managers understand what snow, salt, and sand can do their floors. Adding an extra cleaning can help keep up with the maintenance and care of your rugs, hardwood floors, and tile. In order for your floors to last longer, it is vital to have them cleaned on a regular basis. Vacuuming, sweeping, or mopping on a weekly basis can help them looking shiny and new, and give a fresh, clean look to all who enter. Adding a steam cleaning of your carpets on a regular basis will help remove any dirty water brought in from the snow and can help prevent moisture/mildew build up Cleaning up the salt on sand will keep it from eating away at your flooring that will cause divots and holes – which become bigger problems down the line Taking care of your flooring now, means less cost in the long run. You will not have to replace them as often with regular floor maintenance. Germs, germs, and more germs Employees, customers, and clients are spending more time indoors with windows and doors closed. This gives germs more time to dwell in your space and potentially affect those in your buildings. (Read more on our blog about why keeping your employees healthy will save you money in the long run.) Only one person needs to get sick in your space, and the lack of increased cleaning can increase the spread of those germs. By dusting more often, you are giving germs less time to set up shop in your office or store Employees will appreciate not getting sick from germs that were brought in by someone else because the office is cleaned more frequently Customers will feel safe while shopping in your store when they see areas are disinfected and dusted on a regular basis By adding Millennium Shield to your locations, you are signaling to all who enter, that you care about their health and safety When it is time to protect you and your employees, look to Millennium Cleaning Services.
