How often have we heard the phrase “Your mother doesn’t work here!” in our professional lives? Maybe you’re the one saying it because you feel like you’re always cleaning up after everyone! The commercial cleaning services offered by ServiceMaster Cleaning By Simons will keep your Lincoln Square, Chicago, IL office building thoroughly clean. With a few extra steps, you and your coworkers can work together, peacefully, knowing that everyone has lent a helping hand.

Reception Area and Conference Rooms

The reception area is the first room your visiting clients encounter, followed by the conference room where you hold your meeting. You want to make a good first impression by presenting a spotless environment.

  • Have glass cleaner, paper towels, trashcan liners, a shovel, and sidewalk salt easily accessible in a nearby closet or storage space.
  • Regularly clean windows and door glass on both the inside and the outside.
  • Check the conference room before the meeting to make sure the room is clean and all the equipment you need is set up correctly.
  • Empty trashcans when they are full. Remember to replace the can liner.
  • Tidy up any magazines and promotional materials you have on display.
  • Pick up any stray trash that missed the trashcan or was left behind by a guest.

Bathrooms

The office bathrooms are shared by everyone. Maintain office-wide peace by making it possible for everyone to keep them clean.

  • Store extra paper towels, toilet paper, soap, and air freshener in a bathroom cupboard.
  • Remind your co-workers to replace the toilet paper and paper towel rolls when a roll runs out.
  • Ask everyone to pick up stray trash that is left on the floor.

Break Room

The break room is a space just for employees. Your visiting clients most likely won’t use this space, but it’s just as important to keep your break room clean to prevent one small mess from causing a mountain of unwanted office drama.

  • Keep dish soap, a few clean dish cloths or a scrubber, and extra rolls of paper towels on hand in a break room cupboard.
  • Make a refrigerator clean-out rule if one is not yet in place. Many businesses clean out the company refrigerator at the end of the week. They may send out a building-wide email that any unclaimed food will be thrown out. Choose a time that makes sense for your company and stick to it every week.
  • Ask your co-workers to replace the paper towels when they use up the last section of the previous roll, rather than leaving the next person to face an empty dispenser.
  • Encourage your co-workers to wash their dishes in the break room sink. Remind them to scrub out the sink and take their dry dishes home when they are clean.

You and your co-workers can work together to maintain a clean office space. In general, every employee should leave the room cleaner than it was when they arrived. This is similar to the campground etiquette that you may already be familiar with. While it’s easy enough to tidy up a bit for a cleaner office, leave the serious cleaning to the commercial cleaning professionals at ServiceMaster Cleaning By Simons in Lincoln Square, Chicago, IL. Contact us at -773-376-1110 and enjoy a sparkling office environment today.

Commercial cleaning services include so much more than taking out the trash and vacuuming surface dirt from carpeting. Our upholstery cleaning experts pick up crumbs and clean stains and dirt from your office furniture so the upholstery continues to look like new. Regular carpet cleaning lifts dirt from the surface down to the roots of carpet fibers, treats tough stains, and freshens up the carpeting in each section of the office building, including those that experience the highest levels of traffic. Hard-surface floor cleaning removes dirt, erases scuffmarks, and returns the original sparkle to linoleum, hardwood, and tile. We are often able to prolong the lives of your flooring and office furniture by giving them regular, professional maintenance.

The benefits of teaming up with commercial cleaning experts go much further than simply being able to work in a clean office building. You’ll create an excellent first impression with your visiting clients and maintain that same professional atmosphere with each visit. Your co-workers will feel more comfortable and happier. They may even become more productive, allowing them to fulfill their own resolutions to contribute more at work. You will notice higher morale in each department. Thanks to a healthier, more sanitary work environment, your staff will take fewer sick days.

Quality commercial cleaning services benefit each person’s experiences within your office building in some capacity. That’s why at ServiceMaster Cleaning By Simons, we support your Hyde Park company and others throughout Chicago, IL with our commercial cleaning services all year long. Together, we’ll make 2016 our best year yet. Call us today.

While the students enjoy their freedom from pencils and books, summer cleaners are hard at work making sure the building is shipshape for the fall.

While it’s important to have a clean environment for children to return to when school starts again, it’s also important to make sure that environment is healthy. Unfortunately, many common cleaning products contain chemicals that can negatively affect health, and children can be especially susceptible to this danger.

Corrosive cleaners like bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner, oven cleaners, and lye can have the most serious immediate effects on children’s health. Some short-term symptoms from these chemicals include eye-irritation, respiratory problems, headaches, and sneezing.

Other chemicals aren’t immediately dangerous, but prolonged exposure can lead to   serious risks and irrevocably damage a child’s health. Chemicals like diethanolamine (DEA) and triethanolamine (TEA)—sudsing agents found in many all-purpose cleaners—can contribute to an increased risk of cancer later in life.

Other chemicals can cause long-term hormone disruption, leading to decreased sperm count and some possible male birth defects. One of the many possible causes of these hormone disruption symptoms are some substances in most detergents called alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEs).

Many of these chemicals can flow into the water through drains, affecting the environment around schools, homes, and businesses as well. Phosphates are commonly found in water and most -phenol compounds are toxic and non-soluble. Any carcinogens that can permeate the skin are incredibly dangerous for developing bodies. If they can be kept out of school environments as much as possible, we can lower health risks for children.

That’s why at ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons, we support green cleaning products. Contact ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons today for commercial cleaning services in Chicago, IL.
