At iNX Commercial Cleaning Solutions, we understand that revitalizing your facility’s image is paramount in facility management. Regular occupants or occasional visitors continually assess your facility’s condition, and it can significantly impact their perception of your establishment. In these post-pandemic times, achieving and maintaining a pristine facility image is not just important; it’s an absolute necessity.
First Impressions – Floors
Let’s start by discussing the first thing people notice when they step into your building – the flooring. Regardless of whether you have vinyl composition tile (VCT), concrete, wood, stone, or carpet flooring, the condition of your floors creates a memorable impression.
Not only does it influence the overall perception of your facility, but it’s also a significant reservoir for contaminants. As people walk around, particles from coughs and sneezes land on the floors. Shoes, bags, or other items later pick up these particles, aiding in the spread of germs.
High Traffic – Restrooms
Now, consider the restroom – the highest traffic area in your facility. It’s safe to say that restrooms receive a visit from every building occupant and visitor at least once during the workday. Due to their high-traffic nature, restrooms can become breeding grounds for germs.
When assessing the overall image of your facility, it’s crucial to take into account the appearance and user experience of your restrooms. Perhaps it’s time for a renovation with new toilet partitions and restroom accessories to uplift their appearance.
Equally important is the cleaning process for restrooms. Are there unsightly grout lines or persistent foul odors that visitors notice? Restroom cleanliness significantly influences the overall perception of your facility.
“Clean” – What’s it Mean?
But what does it mean to be “clean”? According to Merriam-Webster, it means being “free from dirt or pollution” or “free from contamination or disease.” While there’s no universally accepted definition of “clean” in the cleaning industry, a proposed definition from the Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) suggests that it’s an environmental condition free from unwanted matter – a good place to start.
Traditionally, many believed that if something looked clean, it was clean. However, the industry has evolved, and we now understand that cleanliness goes beyond appearances. While removing visible dirt is crucial for improving the facility’s image, it’s only the beginning. Often, it’s the invisible dirt and bacteria that pose the greatest concerns.
