Understanding Professional Deep Cleaning

Deep Clean

A professional deep clean refers to a comprehensive cleaning process that targets and eliminates dust, dirt, bacteria, and grime from every corner of your premises. It goes beyond routine cleaning by reaching areas that are often overlooked and difficult to access, allowing for the removal of accumulated dirt and contaminants.

During a deep clean, every item, whether stationary or movable, is carefully shifted to enable thorough cleaning. This ensures that every surface, corner, and crevice is attended to, providing a level of cleanliness that is not typically achieved through daily or weekly maintenance.

How Often You Should Perform Deep Cleaning

The frequency of deep cleaning required for commercial businesses depends on the nature of their operations. Industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, and food services often require specialized cleaning due to specific regulations and mandatory requirements. These areas necessitate thorough cleaning to maintain hygiene standards. However, in many commercial settings like schools, offices, retail, and hospitality, a "deep clean" provided by professional commercial cleaners goes beyond the daily cleaning of commonly used or visible areas and welfare facilities.

While all cleaning tasks have hygiene considerations, daily office cleaning primarily focuses on maintaining a functional, tidy, and clean work environment. For commercial premises, maintaining a professional appearance and ambiance is crucial. However, a deep clean surpasses these objectives.

Determining the frequency of deep cleaning for an office space does not have strict rules. As a general guideline, we recommend scheduling a deep clean every quarter. This deep cleaning session is typically arranged after business hours to minimize disruption. During this process, the cleaning team will move desks, cupboards, and equipment to clean areas that are usually inaccessible, such as behind and underneath them.

As a business owner, you have the authority to decide how often your premises should undergo a deep clean. We can assist you in conducting a comprehensive risk assessment to help you make an informed decision. Typically, deep cleaning is conducted during weekends or scheduled shutdown periods to ensure minimal interruption to your regular business operations.
