Daily Office Cleaning

What does commercial Daily Office Cleaning include?

Commercial daily office cleaning includes a wide range of tasks including vacuuming and sanitising desks and tables to maintain the cleanliness of the office environment. The main tasks are carried out on a daily basis and follow a cleaning specification with the tasks allocated by day.  Depending on the requirements of the client and office space, some lower frequency tasks are on a weekly, monthly or quarterly schedule.

Work schedules are provided for the cleaning staff to ensure nothing is missed and that the office consistently maintains high cleaning standards at all times.

COVID-19 has increased the requirement for sanitisations and this is now a key role for cleaning teams.

Daily office cleaning tasks

Typical daily office cleaning tasks would include vacuuming, sanitising and cleaning desks, tables and chairs.  Tasks vary by area:-

Vacuuming reception

Periodic cleaning tasks

Periodic deep cleaning provides a more thorough clean than can be achieved during normal office cleaning and usually forms part of the cleaning contract.  Examples are washroom and carpet deep cleans.

Non-standard tasks

Clients often ask for additional non-standard tasks to be added to the specification, for example:-

  • Cleaning or flushing out the bean to cup coffee machine
  • Cleaning work pods or individual booths

The office cleaning needs to reflect the client needs, and some additional tasks are often required to support the extended office environment, for example:-

  • Exterior cleaning eg smoking area, entrance and work pods
  • Jet washing patio and outdoor areas
  • Litter pick external areas eg car park
  • Cleaning bike sheds and outdoor bin storage areas

Lower frequency cleaning tasks eg weekly cleaning

Some tasks do not require daily attention such as:-

  • Waste bins are emptied daily, but the bins themselves may be scheduled for a full weekly clean to maintain hygiene and eliminate odours
  • Fire extinguishers do not require daily cleaning and often scheduled for a weekly damp wipe
  • Windowsills are spot cleaned each day to remove visible marks and stains, but often these are fully cleaned each week, fortnight or month depending on the location and office environment

Day House-keeping office cleaning

Some companies want a day housekeeper to maintain areas through the day, especially around midday during the busy lunch time period.  These tasks may include regularly sanitising of frequently touched points in the communal areas and stocking up washroom consumables.

Client-centric daily office cleaning

Whatever the individual requirements of the daily office cleaning contract, the primary aim is to deliver the right solution for the client.  For some this includes out of hours cleaning and sanitising, for others it’s a visible cleaning presence during the day to ensure areas are safe and clean.

How long does it take to clean an office?

This depends on the size and layout of the office!  No layout is ever the same even if the footprint is, and a site visit can ascertain the hours required.  No one size fits all and tailoring the cleaning to client requirements will provide the best service.
