Every season brings about its own unique cleaning requirements and considerations. Autumn is no different, doing its bit to complicate everyday office cleaning in Stockport. Or at least, provide you with a few additional bits and pieces to think about, as the leaves begin to fall.
While many rue the end of the summer months, the British autumn can be absolutely beautiful. Messy to say the least, but messy in a beautiful way! Plus, there’s really no need for your office or workplace to fall into a state of dismay and disrepair.
Not if you work with our helpful checklist, anyway!
So from those who know office cleaning in Stockport better than most, here’s a quick look at a few things you might want to think about right now:
1. Entrance Mats
First and foremost, there’s no time like to present to take a good look at your entrance mats – indoors and outdoors. This is precisely the time of year when more people tread more detritus into the office than ever. Entrance mats can make office cleaning in Stockport that little bit easier, by trapping this kind of stuff before it makes its way indoors. That is, just as long as the mats and other protective products you use are in good condition. Not to mention, present in the first place! If not, you are going to be staring more intensive and on-going office cleaning processes in the eye. Which is unfortunate, given the way in which they aren’t exactly difficult or expensive to install!
2. Exterior Walkways
On the same note, you might want to think about taking a look at your exterior walkways too. The reason being that it won’t be long before things get cold, wet, dark and slippery enough to become downright hazardous. If there are areas where you could benefit from laying down protective floor coverings, now’s the time to do it. In addition, such walkways can have the same beneficial effect as the mats mentioned above. It might not transform your requirements for office cleaning in Stockport, but every little helps…right?
3. Heating and Hot Water Systems
Why wait until the mercury plummets to find out that your heating and hot water systems are not working properly? Admittedly, this doesn’t necessarily come under the bracket of effective office cleaning in Stockport. Still, there’s no better time of year to ensure that things are working exactly as they should be. So if it hasn’t been done for a while, think about having your heating and hot water systems inspected and tested.
4. Ventilation and AC
Chances are you’ve been using your ventilation and AC systems quite a lot over the summer. Which means that the filters, pipes, fans and so on have probably become quite disgustingly dirty. As such, this is also the best time to have them inspected and cleaned/repaired as necessary. The last thing you want is to allow this dirt to fester and multiply over the coming weeks and months. For health and hygiene purposes, ventilation and AC systems form an essential part of responsible office cleaning in Stockport.
5. Windows and External Doors
Both for the sake of staying warm and keeping energy costs low, now’s the time to check for leaky windows and doors. If there are any gaps, broken seals or anything thus likely to allow cold air in, get it fixed! Once again, it simply makes sense to take care of these kinds of things now, rather than wait for things to get really cold.
6. General Floor Coverings
Last but not least, autumn and winter can wreak havoc with floors of all kinds. Leaves, dirt, salt, grit, mud and so on – all out to get you. Realistically, the only way to protect attractive and/or fragile flooring properly is to cover it up. Protective mats, rugs, carpets and so on – all far better ideas than allowing your floors to get destroyed. Plus if you choose washable mats and coverings, it all makes for a much easier office cleaning in Stockport!
