Preparing your Facility for the Winter Months

By 18th October 2019Blogs

It’s inevitable… winter is coming! To ensure that you have a clean, well-functioning office space and a healthy workforce, there are many things you can do to prepare for this snowy season ahead—and Facility Plus can help you every step of the way. We have put together the following office cleaning tips to help keep your staff healthy, and your facility sparkling clean… all winter long!

1. Start with Parking Lot Safety

Be sure to repair any sidewalks or parking areas, and do any asphalt resurfacing or patchwork before the weather turns cold. Have your parking lot’s high lighting replaced or repaired for maximum visibility to keep your staff safe and slip-free! Learn more about our extensive list of exterior services here.

2. Protect Your Floors from the Outdoor Elements

As your clients and employees make their way into your building from the outside, salt, dust and moisture will definitely be making its way into your office as well. Also, this moisture can lead to bacteria build-up… or even harmful mold. Keep this debris off your floors by scheduling regular carpet and floor cleaning. Facility Plus has programs that include deep cleaning, steam cleaning, dry foam cleaning & encapsulation carpet cleaning. We also offer the latest in green cleaning programs. Learn more here!

3. Schedule Regular Window Cleaning

Many businesses forget about their windows during the winter  but having the sun shine through can actually boost your company morale, especially for employees that may feel seasonal depression during the winter. Removing any built-up dust and water stains from your windows will instantly make your office space feel cleaner. Facility Plus offers both exterior and interior window cleaning.
