6/20/2022 (Permalink)

The heat, dust, and insects of summer can cause your workplace to look a bit less professional than it usually does. Here are some SERVPRO tips for you to use to keep your place of business looking great during the summer months:

Which Cleaning Tasks Should Be Done Daily During Summer?

The following tasks should be done daily whenever possible to keep your Hermitage/Donelson business location sanitized, neat, and clean:

  • Dust surfaces daily.
  • Clean and disinfect all bathrooms, including mirrors, countertop, sinks, and inside AND outside of toilets. 
  • Clean and disinfect doors, door handles, and light switches. 
  • Sweep and mop floors using a disinfectant liquid. Make sure the mop head gets cleaned and replaced regularly. 
  • Clean cigarette trash from provided receptacles. 
  • Clean and polish drinking fountain.
  • Clean and disinfect kitchen area to include sinks and countertops. 
  • Clean all glass, especially entrance doors. 

Which Cleaning Tasks Should Be Completed Weekly?

You should perform the following cleaning and maintenance tasks weekly to help you tackle dust, insects, and other summertime challenges:

  • Install insect traps in places where they hide and use fly strips near entrances. 
  • Wipe down and disinfect work desks and machinery such as phones, keyboards, printers, and filing cabinets. 
  • Sweep and vacuum all offices. 
  • Dust accessible window sills and baseboards. 
  • Dust artwork, framed certifications, news articles, etc. 
  • Clean out the refrigerator and wash/disinfect the microwave. 
  • Sweep exterior entrances, both front, and back.
  • Make sure break areas are clean and presentable. 
  • Remove trash and debris from parking areas.
  • Ensure there is no standing water on the property that could attract mosquitoes.

What Should My Monthly Maintenance And Cleaning Projects Include?

Keeping your Hermitage/Donelson commercial property in good repair is just good business:

  • Inspect the roofing, exterior doors and windows, and parking areas for potential problems and maintenance needs, especially if there have been some heavy storms in the past few weeks.
  • Trim back large bushes and tree limbs on your property ahead of wet summer weather; this is a great time to remove leaves and branches from the area and get rid of weeds. 
  • Do a quick inspection of fencing and entrance gates.
  • Schedule periodic maintenance of HVAC and ductwork regularly during this season of heavy use.
