As the year comes to a close, we often reflect on lost opportunities….we could have lost 10 lbs, spent more time with the family or given a little more in the workplace. Luckily we have a new opportunity in the next year to do better and with these ideas you can begin to focus on some key areas that can make 2016 the best year yet!

  1. Use down time for your advantage – Facility shut downs or long weekends are great opportunities to bring in a commercial cleaning company for a deep clean. Smaller pockets of time are also useful, many Massachusetts janitorial services offer overnight or weekend crews.
  2. Give the exterior some love – Power washing the outside of the building is especially important in the winter months as salt and chemicals build up. Cleaning the windows will also let extra light into the building which can boost productivity.
  3. Replace fixtures as soon as you notice a need – That light went out in April but here you are December and the bulb still needs to be replaced. Perhaps in the new year you can tackle those small tasks immediately. Whether it’s a bulb, dirty ceiling tile or window screen, tackling these small tasks will keep your building looking great and motivate you to take that momentum onto bigger projects.
  4. Set up regular cleanings – Commit to a schedule and stick to it. Consult with a commercial cleaning company for ideas on how to maximize effectiveness. Unicpro offers free quotes and initial consultations.
  5. Simplify multiple properties management – If you manage several facilities try and streamline the process. Using the same contractors, cleaning company, and tradesmen will help you to establish better relationships which makes calling in the occasional favor easier and you have the added benefit of only remembering one contact.
  6. Deep clean – At least once a month a good deep cleaning is needed, bi-weekly if your facility has a lot of foot traffic or more frequently in medical, foodservice or childcare facilities.
  7. Evaluate the need for dedicated cleaning – List the cleaning tasks you currently take on and compare that with the costs of outsourcing this work. You will often be surprised at how affordable it can be given the amount of time you will gain.

With these tips and some help from a trusted local commercial cleaning company like Unicpro, 2016 can be your best year yet! Start off the year right with a plan and the team behind you to make it happen. Contact us today for a free quote.
