Commercial Cleaning and disinfection checklist – check 1, 2, 3

Commercial Cleaning and disinfection checklist

Commercial cleaning, or any type of cleaning for that matter, will prove more efficient with a cleaning checklist. It will ensure that all the necessary areas are cleaned in the correct manner at the correct time. A checklist will also promote the staff to be involved in the cleaning process of the company and give them a clear understanding of what is expected when it comes to cleaning.

The topics covered,

  1. Frequency checklists
  2. Areas that need cleaning
  3. What needs to be cleaned?
  4. Important points to keep in mind when cleaning

Frequency Checklists 

Cleaning Checklists can be in the form of daily checklists, weekly checklists and monthly checklists. The daily checklist should include the cleaning procedures that should be done daily including dusting and cleaning areas where there is frequent contact. For weekly cleaning, it should include things that need to be regularly cleaned but not as regularly as for daily cleaning. For more deep cleaning purposes a monthly cleaning checklist can be kept for the cleaning processes that need to be done less frequently.

Let’s take a look at the areas that need cleaning

The cleaning process will be more efficient if the areas that need regular cleaning and the areas that are frequented by staff and customers are noted down.

Here is a list of some areas that require regular cleaning in offices.

  1. Front-desk/reception and customer waiting area
  2. Kitchen and break rooms
  3. Bathrooms
  4. Conference and Meeting rooms
  5. Elevators

What needs special attention?

In the front desk and reception,

  • Phones
  • Desk accessories such as staplers, pen holders
  • Computers and other frequently used electronic devices 
  • Desk and chairs
  • Sanitizer dispensers
  • Water cooler
  • Garbage bins

In the kitchen and break rooms,

  • Kitchen utensils specially the handles
  • Fixtures such as switches
  • Chairs and tables

Important points that shouldn’t be missed

  1. As much as wiping, sanitizing and disinfecting is important, it is also important to take out the trash regularly if possible daily.
  2. Create a cleaning calendar including the cleaning job assignments with the names of the employees that are assigned.
  3. Use single-use clothes or disposable paper towels when cleaning toilet fixtures and fittings.
  4. Soap should be washed off before disinfection.
  5. When using cleaning products it is important to follow the instructions mentioned on the label.
  6. Avoid mixing different kinds of cleaning products if not indicated, as this may be harmful and toxic to health.
