It’s that time of year, where temperatures start to drop, storms happen more frequently, and your employees start dragging the mess of it all into your commercial building. The downside to these cooler months, aside from it being chilly outside, is that it seems so much easier for a mess to form in your building. Be it leaves, dirt, snow, you need to be prepared for the ways that your commercial building is going to be affected by the poor weather outdoors. 

The team at Anago Cleaning Systems® has spent years helping commercial buildings stay on top of the mess that builds up during this time of the year. That is why, in today’s blog, we are going to go over a few of the things that you need to be prepared for as temperatures continue to drop. Let’s get started.

 

Building Entrances

One of the very first things that we need to cover is the first thing that people will use in your building: your entrance. Unless you plan on banning all employees for the rest of the year for the sake of your building’s cleanliness, this is a space that you can guarantee is going to get dirty. People are going to be tracking in mud and snow when the weather calls for it and leaves are going to be blowing in with the high winds. 

While this is something that people understand and expect to happen during this time of year, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to tidy up the entrance of your building when it does happen. Prepare for the weather by putting down mats for your employees and patrons to wipe their feet on as soon as they step through the door. Aside from that, hire a company that will be able to tackle all of the debris and dirt that needs to be swept up, the mud that needs to be vacuumed, and the footprints that need to be mopped up.

Trash Clean Out

Another thing that we always talk to owners of commercial buildings about is trash. Trash may not seem like a huge problem when it’s tucked away in a can with a lid over it, or in the bins by your employee’s desks, but the reality is that trash is a major concern during this time of year. Now, it’s important to note that trash isn’t an issue because of the smell or appearance, but because of the guests that it warrants: rodents. 

During cooler months, small rodents and pests are looking for a warm place to call home. If your building has open space and plenty of trash for them to munch on, chances are they may consider a long-term stay. While we can’t help you tackle pest problems, our team can definitely help you prevent a rodent problem by keeping your building nice and clean.
