What does a deep clean involve?

Staff and client welfare is always a priority and to ensure that everyone feels confident coming in to the workplace, the working environment should be clean and hygienic. This will in turn promote wellbeing, leading to higher productivity.  A deep clean is a lot more thorough than a regular clean and should, at a minimum, include the following:

  • Scrubbing and sanitising the floors
  • Disinfecting the outside of appliances and surfaces in the kitchens 
  • Cleaning the insides of cupboards
  • Cleaning internal windows and frames
  • Cleaning all the carpets and door mats
  • Vacuuming air vents
  • Sanitising the toilets and washroom facilities

Probably the most critical areas to clean are the common touchpoints such as:

  • Exit push buttons
  • Light switches
  • Door handles
  • Door plates
  • Alarm keypads
  • Printers (surrounding areas and buttons)

It's also important to pay attention to individual areas and meeting rooms, by sanitising:

  • Desks
  • Telephones
  • Conference speakerphones
  • Headsets
  • Mice
  • Keyboards
  • Screens
  • Chair arms
  • Bins

Attention to detail is the key to a deep clean.  There's no point just quickly wiping down a few surfaces and hoping for the best.  

Once the deep clean has been completed, you may find that you'll need to increase your regular cleaning to ensure a high standard of cleanliness is maintained.  Perhaps look at products that you can use throughout the day to help - such as our aerosol disinfectant spray that you can use on door handles and other frequent touch points.
