Do all office areas need professional cleaning?
Simple tasks like wiping down the coffee maker or tidying up individual desk areas may be suitable for light cleaning by employees. However, high-traffic areas, common areas, or spaces that require specific cleaning solutions or methods, like restrooms, are best left to the professionals.
How often should you schedule your professional cleaning services?
First, identify the areas to be cleaned. Highly trafficked areas that receive the most use need to be serviced daily. This includes areas such as lobbies, reception, restrooms, and break rooms. Although we highly recommend daily service, at minimum these areas should be serviced three times per week. This will ensure the cleanliness and safety of all employees and office visitors.
Along with daily cleaning duties, offices also require additional types of cleaning and sanitation that are more acceptable on a less frequent basis. Things like dusting, carpet cleaning, and floor polishing can be completed weekly, monthly, and sometimes even quarterly, depending on the facility.

Your office carpet is continually fighting a battle with dirt, bacteria, and debris. A clean carpet will enhance your office space and maintain a healthy indoor environment.
Color and Type of Carpet
If you have a light-colored carpet, make sure to vacuum daily. Vacuum cleaning is a must to keep the carpet looking fresh and clean, as it also prevents the dust and dirt from settling in the fibers.
Traffic in Your Commercial Space
The frequency of carpet cleaning highly depends on the number of employees and visitors coming to your office. The carpets in high-traffic areas like entranceways and corridors should be vacuumed daily, whereas with lower traffic areas like conference rooms, once a week is fine. If your workplace sees a heavy amount of foot traffic, professional carpet steam cleaning services may be done twice a month.
Type of Business Facility
Office building carpets should be steam cleaned every six months to a year, depending on the number of people entering the office space. Spills should be cleaned as soon as possible to prevent permanent staining.

There are numerous benefits of recycling, both for your business and the environment.
Monetary & Energy Savings
Reduced waste means reduced costs. Set up recycling stations around the office to recycle paper, batteries, and electronics. Saving energy is beneficial on both a financial and environmental level.
Protect the Environment
Recycling reduces 10 major types of air pollutants and 8 categories of water pollutants. For every ton of paper recycled, you save 7000 gallons of water and 17 trees, reports the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Recycling also decreases the strain on landfills. This is particularly important for materials such as office electronics, which contain toxins that could otherwise contaminate groundwater, affecting the health of your local community.
The recycling industry requires a far greater workforce than waste management. In California, for example, for every job in recycling collection, eight are created for manufacturing the recovered materials, reports Stanford University.
Improved Company Image
Consumers love to know that the companies they conduct business with are responsible. Recycling can also improve your image with employees — seeing an effort being made in the office can boost morale, lower staff turnover, and increase individuals’ efforts at home.
Starting an office recycling program will allow you to take full advantage of the benefits of recycling, and conducting a waste audit will help you know the eco-friendliness of your office. Contact Peach State Cleaning Solutions to create an affordable cleaning service for your business. Our green cleaning services ensure a healthy and eco-friendly working environment for you and your employees.
All commercial cleaning companies are the same so you might as well hire the company with the lowest quoted price, right?
Yes, price must be a consideration, but it should never be the only consideration when choosing a cleaning service. A cheap price might indicate an inexperienced company that doesn't understand just how much time it is going to take to clean the building. This company will soon realize they can't operate, much less make a profit, at the low price they quoted, and soon will be asking to raise the price, or cut back on the services currently being provided. Or, they'll just start cutting back without having a discussion with the client, leaving that client frustrated with the quality of service.
Companies that offer cheap prices in order to secure an account usually end up performing subpar quality cleaning and find they are unable to fulfill the contractual requirements. The client begins to notice that their building is no longer being cleaned like it should and realize that perhaps choosing the company with the lowest price may not have been the best decision.
There are many incorrect assumptions about commercial cleaning, but this one needs to be put to rest. While building owners and facility managers may have some predetermined notions about cleaning companies either from lack of knowledge or perhaps a bad experience, what will always remain the same is the need for a high-quality, professional cleaning company that will keep their building clean and fulfills their needs at a fair price.
At Peach State Cleaning Solutions we can prove that any predetermined assumptions do not apply to us, and bet our reputation on it. We maintain superior service standards by providing services through pre-screened and well-trained employees. By listening to our client's needs, we are able to address these needs, and deliver unmatched value with clear, transparent pricing. Providing prompt and polite customer service and quickly responding to any concerns, questions, or issues creates a solid association with our clients.
Floors make an important impression on your building.
Dirty Floors Have Short Lives
Floors that are not properly cleaned will have a shorter life. Over time, the accumulation of dust, debris, and dirt can wear down, corrode, and structurally damage floors. Some debris may contain chemicals or acid, which can cause extensive damage to the floors, especially when they are not cleaned or removed for a long period. As a result, you may need to repair or replace your floors more frequently.
Negative Brand Image
As a business, you should maintain the reputation of your brand image. Do not think that dirty floors can only affect your employees, it can also affect your potential business partners, suppliers, and customers who regularly visit your premises. If your business leaves a bad impression on them, they will likely terminate your business collaboration. Make every effort to keep your floors clean and please your business affiliates.
Affect Employee's Health
Unclean floors contain germs, bacteria, and viruses, which can cause potential health problems to your employees. Your business may experience an increase in employee sick days if your floors are dirty. On the other hand, you will be able to protect the health of your employees and cut down sick day expenses by having a clean floor, which is free of microorganisms.
Peach State Cleaning Solutions can help you get rid of dirty floors by effectively cleaning and removing the microbes, dust, dirt, and other substances. We have the right cleaning equipment and chemicals to get the job done perfectly and precisely.
With floor care services offered by a commercial cleaning company, you can enjoy clean and sparkling floors, which can create a professional image for your business.

Safety checklists help in reducing or removing risks that can cause illnesses, injuries, and incidents to janitorial workers.
While it’s impossible to provide a fully comprehensive list of janitorial safety guidelines, this list will provide you with a solid foundation to follow:
Make sure your facility is adhering to all OSHA regulations especially in regards to bloodborne pathogens. Contaminated and improperly disposed of sharps can cause puncture injuries and possibly transmit bloodborne infections.
All businesses and institutions that use sharps for medical care must adopt practices that isolate sharps and ensure they are disposed of properly.
This includes training your employees and posting visual aids around the workplace as reminders of the specific guidelines.
Falls on floors occur in various ways and from various causes. The principal causes of falls on floors are due spills and other contaminants. The National Safety Council advises that all employees be trained to use containers for the disposal of trash and wrappings only, taking care to dispose of liquid waste separately (to prevent leaks and possible slip and fall injuries).
Additionally, if containers are not large enough to hold the trash that accumulates during the workday, make an effort to secure larger containers (to prevent lower back injuries, trash weight inside containers should be limited to 35 lbs), provide janitorial service more often, or study the operation in an effort to reduce the amount of trash. A recycling program, if not already in place, is recommended for the disposal of cardboard and paper products. Most importantly, trash must be kept off the floors.
Janitorial employees are often faced with a myriad of safety concerns when working at night. If they are required to move trash from the building to a dumpster, there is an additional risk.
Therefore, ensuring a safe workplace is critical. All outside areas should have lighting in good working order. This includes parking lot lights, dumpster area lights, and all entryway lights. If any lights are burned out be sure to get them replaced right away. Lastly, be sure to trim down any overgrown trees, shrubs, etc., which can create dangerous blind spots.
Let's commit to creating a plan for a safe work environment for all who enter your business. Partner with Peach State Cleaning Solutions to maintain a safe and healthy workplace by identifying potential hazards and implementing safe work practices.
These 3 resolutions can help you reach your 2022 business goals.
Over the past 12-plus months the marketplace has changed drastically and we have seen new cleaning trends emerge, strategies evolve, and employee and customer needs continue to shift. The new year is a time to reflect on what has worked and how to develop strategies to continue to improve.
Below, we have listed three resolutions that will set you and your team up for a healthier and more successful year:
When evaluating your office space, ask yourself: does the design of your office create an efficient workflow or does it promote chaos? Does the general organization help or hurt your team’s productivity?
The beginning of the new year is a perfect time to clear clutter and get efficient with ways to make your space work for you. The new year is also a perfect time to introduce new policies or procedures that will keep the office running smoothly throughout the year.
Going green is a great way to remove harmful chemicals from your environment and reduce your company’s overall negative impact on the earth. Make it a priority to proactively look for opportunities to implement environmentally-friendly practices like recycling programs, reducing print usage by moving to digital workflow, or encouraging ride-sharing.
Consider upgrading outdated equipment to newer models, as many newer machines require less energy and resources. Switch cleaning supplies to earth-friendly, natural products or work with a company like Peach State Cleaning Solutions that does.
Consistency is Key
When it comes to change, we all start out with the best intentions in mind, but sticking to our resolutions, regardless of how beneficial they are to us, can be difficult, especially when you’re running a business.
This January, commit to a regular cleaning schedule that proactively takes care of maintenance and quickly addresses any issues or messes. If that sounds like a lot to take on right now, we get it. And we’re here to help you get started. Peach State Cleaning Solutions will meet with you to evaluate your building or workspace to create a customized solution that will meet your needs and preferences.
