Is your office or commercial property ready for Winter Season in the lower mainland Vancouver B.C.? With winter months coming, proper cleaning can help reduce cold-weather problems before they happen in the office or workplace. Peak Janitorial Inc. is here to give your property the maintenance it deserves. Here is a checklist of tips to reduce the impact of harsh winter conditions on your commercial property:
Prevent Slips and Falls
One of the biggest concerns in winter is falling on icy walkways. De-icers like salt, keep snow from sticking to the ground and increase the surface temperature enough to prevent ice from forming. Apply these in anticipation of each store to keep people safe from injury.
Along with cold weather comes extreme conditions such as snow and ice. It is important to introduce certain safety precautions into your facility before bad weather hits, such as bringing out the safety mats at the main doors of your building. Due to the harsh conditions, these mats may become dirty, making your commercial building look less appealing. Peak Janitorial Inc. offers convenient carpet floor care to get rid of the slush, dirt, and salt from your mats!
We provide cost effective cleaning systems to keep your property and businesses looking and feeling their best.
Prepare In and around Lobbies
Consider the impact de-icing agents like salt may have on walkways, carpeting, floors, and even the plants around your buildings. Careful use of ice melt products can minimize damage to these surfaces. Consider installing quality, absorbent floor mats to help keep ice melt residue from being tracked into the building.
The high-traffic entryway of lobbies shouldn’t be overlooked in winter preparation and floors need special attention. Things used to keep pavement safe – like sand, grit and salt – get dragged in, and act like a sandpaper on the flooring that’s difficult to clean. Many maintenance workers will use the same cleaning process during winter that they use in warmer months, and that’s a big mistake. At Peak Janitorial Inc. we highly recommend to increase the frequency of vacuuming in the winter. So should dry soil removal and thorough cleaning of hard surfaces.
Disinfect to Avoid Illness
It’s important to keep your commercial buildings clean and disinfected. As the temperature drops and cold season arrives, it’s all the more important to be stringent in your cleaning and disinfecting routine, even when we aren’t dealing with a pandemic. With the disinfecting services we have available, this is easier than ever. Our electrostatic disinfection provides a broad-spectrum approach to disinfecting a complete surface area and an entire room as we have never seen before.
Give your Floors Proper Maintenance
With rain, snow, salt and mud being tracked into the most high-traffic areas of your space, it’s important to be prepared to keep these surfaces looking clean and continuing to make a great impression on your customers. It will also help preserve the value of your building! Having the right equipment is key, and Peak Janitorial has it all--perfect for floor stripping, waxing, buffing, tile and grout cleaning, etc.
Keep your Windows Clean
With shorter days, natural light is something we lack during winter time, so it's best to keep your windows clean to let in sunshine as much as possible. Increased natural light during the wintertime can also help cut down on the use of artificial lights, resulting in a lower energy bill. Dirty windows can actually fall apart faster in the colder months than in the summertime.
Cleaning is essential during the winter-time as grime and debris quickly accumulate. Harmful particles that aren’t properly cleared away can cause scratches and other forms of damage to your windows. The build-up of dirt can also lower the visibility into your office or business and block natural lightening, which brightens up dark spaces during winter.
Peak Janitorial has the perfect crew and products for those spotless windows that you have always wanted. Call us, and we will help you achieve those perfect windows. Our commercial window cleaning service can provide regular maintenance for your office building daily, weekly, or monthly.
Prepare for Snow Now
There’s nothing worse than heading out to the equipment shed after a big storm only to find a loose blade on your snow blower or a faulty wire on the plow for your truck. That’s why it’s so important to audit your equipment now. Take stock of what you have, order what you need and replace older or worn out parts before they break to save money.
If you use a snow removal service, touch base with them now. Make sure your contract hasn’t expired and it’s up-to-date with the latest rates. Plowing services book up quickly, and if they don’t show with the first snow, there’s a good chance you’ll be getting out there yourself with your shovel to help your residents.
With our highly efficient snow removal services, you can rest assured during the snowfall knowing that you won’t have to go out in the cold to clear a path yourself. Just leave it to us and stay cozy inside. Get the best commercial snow removal contract. Keeping your property safe and accessible all winter is our main concern.
