Office Cleaning: Best Practices and Techniques for Fresh and Spotless Floors

As a business, your goal is to keep your workplace clean, germ-free, and inviting to potential clients and employees alike. However, keeping dirt, germs, odors, and allergens at bay can seem like a full-time job.

In this article, Sheri's First Class Cleaning’s commercial cleaning experts will fill you in on the best practices and techniques you can employ to ensure your offices are adequately disinfected and in compliance with local health and safety regulations.

Regular Vacuuming Helps Keep Offices Fresh

The foundation of a successful cleaning routine is regular vacuuming. We recommend vacuuming offices at least once or twice a week, depending on the foot traffic in the area.

It’s essential to use a high-quality vacuum cleaner with strong suction power and rotating brushes to effectively remove dirt, dust, and debris from the floor. Extra attention should be paid to high-traffic areas, including entrances, hallways, and common areas.

Spot Cleaning

Accidents happen, and stains are inevitable in an office setting. However, prompt spot cleaning can prevent stains from setting in and becoming difficult to remove.

It’s essential to address spills and stains immediately to minimize damage. To do this, we recommend blotting the affected area gently with a clean cloth or paper towel and avoiding rubbing, which can spread the stain further.

Deep Cleaning and Disinfection Services

In addition to regular vacuuming and spot cleaning, offices require periodic deep cleaning to remove embedded dirt and grime.

Depending on the traffic volume in your office, we recommend having your floors disinfected at least every 6-12 months.

There are several effective deep cleaning methods to consider:

Hot Water Extraction

Also known as steam cleaning, this method involves injecting hot water mixed with a cleaning solution and then extracting it along with the dirt using a powerful vacuum.

Hot water extraction provides a thorough cleaning and effectively removes deep-seated dirt and stains.

Dry Cleaning

This method involves the application of a dry-cleaning compound or powder, which is then agitated and vacuumed off. Dry cleaning is suitable for low-moisture environments or when minimal downtime is required.


Encapsulation involves the application of a cleaning solution that forms crystals around the dirt particles. Once dry, the crystals can be vacuumed away, leaving the area clean and refreshed.

Choose Professional Cleaners

While regular maintenance can go a long way in keeping offices clean, hiring professional cleaning services is highly recommended for thorough and efficient results.
