Many small businesses are able to handle all of their cleaning needs through minor work from the employees. However, as the workload increases, employees have less time to clean, while the need for cleaning increases. Eventually, for the good of the company, you will need to hire a professional janitorial service in the Bucks County area. If you have been on the fence about hiring commercial cleaners, our certified cleaning professionals have helped construct a list of the main benefits you will experience by doing so.
Productivity: One of the most noticeable benefits of hiring a professional service is the drastic increase in your employees’ productivity. Since your employees will no longer need to stop working to clean, they will be able to focus on the job you hired them to do.
Well-Being: Our cleaners have undergone extensive training in various cleaning techniques, which means we are sure to get your office cleaner than your employees could. During a routine cleaning, we will ensure everything is properly sanitized. Since there will be less bacteria and allergens, you will have healthier employees. By looking after the well-being of your employees, they are less likely to take sick days, which in turn leads to an increase in their productivity.
Savings: By having regular maintenance performed, you will increase the lifespan of your floor and carpets by delaying the need to have either replaced. It will also reduce the need to have extensive cleanings performed, such as buffing and refinishing the tiles. Hiring a commercial cleaning company will also eliminate the need for you to pay and provide benefits for an employee hired solely to clean.
Atmosphere: A dingy office not only diminishes your employees’ morale, but it also gives off an air of unprofessionalism to the clients. A dirty workplace makes for bad first impressions and can hurt your business’s bottom line. By making sure the floors and windows are shining, you will help create a positive environment for your workers and your customers.
When your company has grown to the point where your employees can no longer handle the cleaning duties, you may actually be hurting your business by not hiring one of the janitorial cleaning services in Bucks County.

We have all said it at least once in our lives. “This year I resolve to get my house organized and clean.” It sounds really good when we say it too. Problem is actually following through with the statement. We know that we really do have great intentions but typically they start out strong only to fizzle as time goes on. Maybe it’s because we don’t actually set a plan up to use and follow up with. Well we want to help with that. We have put together a plan of action for you to follow so you can keep up with it. We know life gets crazy at times, but we simplified this plan as best as we could to help keep your home clean and organized.
This plan that we developed will help you distinguish between daily, weekly and monthly cleaning necessities as well as set organization goals. And the best part is if you happen to veer off course, its pretty simple to hop back on track. We recommend writing it out, maybe on a dry erase board. Truth is your less likely to forget about it, if it’s placed in a highly visible location. Here is a list of how we broke it down for you:
There are a few things that should really be done on a daily basis. These things are simple and can be done throughout the day. They are: make the bed, put all dirty clothes into the hamper, wipe down sinks and counters in bathroom, open mail then toss/organize as needed, wipe down sinks and counters in kitchen, wash all dirty dishes, spot vacuum or sweep high traffic areas (if needed), and pick up any toys/clutter around the house.
Typically weekly chores have an assigned day to complete them. Assigning them to a certain day helps create a routine and in turn your more likely to keep up with them. Things to complete weekly are: laundry, changing bed linens, scrub stove top, clean kitchen appliances, disinfect counter tops, doorknobs and handles in kitchen and bathrooms, wipe down all mirrors throughout house, wash/clean any throw rugs, deep clean shower walls and tub in the bathroom, scrub toilets in bathrooms, dust all furniture throughout the house, vacuum all carpeting, sweep and mop all floors, sort through any paperwork that has accumulated during the week (file what needs to be and trash the rest).
Monthly cleaning is when you really have to get down and dirty. No it’s not fun but at least it’s only once a month. The things that need cleaning monthly are: clean the refrigerator inside and out, clean all ceiling fans, wash all floorboards, vacuum all furniture, wipe down walls as needed, dust all air vents, clean windows throughout the house, clean office areas (keyboards, monitors, etc), organize any family rooms or kids toys, and organize your paperwork that you have filed already (keep whats needed, trash what is not).
If you have an area or more that you want to get really cleaned up and organized, set up a realistic goal to achieve with it. Pick a day of the week and a time limit to work on it. For example maybe every Thursday for 2 hours you clean up the attic. Keeping it realistic is important. Life happens but it will happen much smoother if you are clean and organized.
Many of us find that as we grow older, the roles change with our parents. Suddenly we become the caretakers (like a parent) and they need us more and more everyday. And if you are the caretaker, your well aware that it is quite a task. You will find old books/magazines, musty linens and clothes all while navigating through their clutter. And that’s just a start. You can only imagine what you will find in the refrigerator. The reason why it is so important to go through everything for them and de-clutter their home is because living in a chaotic environment provides major risks for aging adults. So when you are ready to tackle cleaning their home, here is a checklist of a few things you wont want to forget:
~ throw away any and all expired food in the freezer/refrigerator.
~ clear objects off of all stairways and walkways.
~ dispose of any outdated medications and expired cleaners/beauty products.
~ make sure all handrails are securely anchored to the walls, that all carpets are secured to the ground, and all the rugs lay flat on the floor.
~ wash or replace soiled bedding, mattress pads, and pillow covers.
~ clean any mold/mildew in bathroom.
~ Look for water damage and mold throughout the house.
~ wash or replace musty curtains, blinds and draperies.
~ check for dusty/moldy walls, ceilings and corners of rooms especially because they can cause respiratory problems along with dusty ventilation and ceiling fans.
Keep in mind that when you are doing this for your loved one, it is very important to include them in the process. As overwhelming as it is for you, its the same way for your loved one. The key to it all is to not put it off! Just about everyone who has been through this ordeal have all said the same thing, wished they would have started sooner!
The battle of donating/selling/tossing items versus keeping them will be tough. For your loved ones, it is more about the memories then the physical items. A good tip for this situation is to take a picture of them. It may be easier for them to donate once they realize the memory has been captured. You could even create a fun photo album for them with some old and new photos for memory’s sake. And for the pile of knick knacks that your loved ones swear will be worth millions in 20 years, try some elegant boxing/packing. Get sturdy boxes, carefully label the contents and relocate the prized items to a basement or storage unit. Nine times out of ten, they will never ask about or to see those items again, but they will feel reassured they are in a safe place. And as the saying goes, when mamma’s happy, everyone is happy!
There are many things to consider when choosing a cleaning service for your home or place of business. It is very important to be thorough and ask lots of questions especially since after all, your placing a lot of trust in the company. Some of the questions we recommend are:
How long has the company been in business?
Is it a privately owned company or a franchise?
Does the company have proper insurance and liability coverage?
How many cleaners per team and do they same cleaners come back to your home each time?
Do they complete background checks, drug testing, and reference checks on the staff?
Can they provide with a list of what is completed each clean?
What types of things are considered extra services? Are oven, refrigerators, and windows included? If not what are the costs of those things
Does they cleaning service provide the tools needed for the clean or does the customer provide them?
What forms of payment are accepted?
How is the schedule done? Do they give exact times? Do they do reminder/confirmation calls?
Always remember to never be afraid to ask any question. Check with the Better Business Bureau. Get the company’s references. Ask them to provide a proof of insurance, liability and bonding. This is your home/business and it is very important that you feel 100% comfortable with the company. Trust and communication are the keys to a successful relationship of any kind.
Did you ever wonder how your showerheads or bathroom faucets became so dingy and crusty looking? You may have also noticed your traditional bathroom cleaning products are not doing the job. This may be the cause of hard water.
Hard water is when your water has a high mineral content. They are formed when water absorbs these minerals through rocks or soil prior to making there way through your plumbing system. However, it is not harmful to one’s self, but can cause some serious damage to your fixtures. When your toilet or sink basin has rust, it is when iron particles are exposed to the air. You’ll see this occur in leaky faucets. As for the crusty, soap scum, buildup it is commonly the cause of magnesium and calcium in your water supply.
Not only can hard water stains leave your fixtures looking dirty and old but it can also make detergents less effective. After running the dishwasher you’ll see your dishes have unwanted spots still lingering on them even after the wash. These hard water stains, can also build up in your pipes staining everything where water comes out of such as your shower, sink and toilet.
How can you tell if you have hard water? If it lathers quickly and easily when washing your hands with soap you don’t have hard water. If you there are no suds or lathering under water than there is probably extra minerals in your water system. A very visible sign to tell whether you do or not is check all your fixtures where water comes out of.
Here are a few tips on how to get rid of hard water stains that leave your dishes stained and your faucets looking grungy:
1. Fill an empty spray bottle with half water and half vinegar
2. Spray your concoction wherever the water stains are. For example, bathroom/kitchen sinks, toilets, showerheads and fixtures.
3. After spraying your surfaces, scrub the objects with a towel to get any excess scum off.
4. If this doesn’t work, cut up some lemons and put then in the spray bottle. The natural acid from the lemon will help break apart any hard water buildup.
For those trying to rid of the hard water stains from spotting your dishes try adding vinegar in your dishwasher while the water is beginning to fill. This will help reduce any hard water stains that were left behind on your dishes and glassware.
Cleaning your household appliances can be cheap and easy. Especially with the use of pure vinegar, those hard water stains and soap scum walls don’t stand a chance. So grab your spray bottle, vinegar and water and starting getting rid of those embarrassing hard water stains.
On a daily basis your home sees a constant flow of traffic, whether it is from your family, pets, or simply objects accumulating dust. When it comes to cleaning most people clean the obvious: floors, countertops, dusty TV’s, and bathrooms. What homeowners forget about is the little objects we use the most, but never think to clean.
First, there are light switches, which are used constantly, all day, and each time you walk into a room. Not many people think to clean light switches, because we are always cleaning a surface or object, not a fixture that is flush against the wall. Light switches don’t ever look dirty or dusty but think of all the times your hands were not clean and you’ve flipped that switch. Bacteria builds up on the switch plates from numerous people carrying all types of germs, which can easily make you ill. Another item similar to this is the remote control, which is also overlooked when cleaning. So, a great way to keep these objects clean and you healthy is to disinfect them every few weeks. You can simply spray disinfectant on the light switches or wipe it down with an anti-bacterial cloth.
Wondering where those foul odors are coming from? If it’s not the trash then what is it? Kitchen drains can build up past meals, grease, and oils. They have a tendency to capture the smell of old food particles and more, long after you are done cleaning. This is what causes unpleasant aromas to linger in your clean kitchen. Lucky for you getting rid of foul drain odors is easy to take care of. For those who have a garbage disposal, putting leftover foods down the drain is a great way to cut down on trash, but this also results in your drain smelling like your garbage. The solution for this is to cut up a lemon and drop it down the drain. Turn the disposal on and grind up those lemons for that fresh citrusy smell. However, for those who do not have a garbage disposal you are still in luck. Pouring hot water mixed with baking soda can fix the foul kitchen drain odors as well.
Another object people forget to clean are keyboards. The build up of bacteria can tend to have as much as the average toilet seat. The reason why this average occurs is because toilet seats are frequently cleaned, whereas keyboards can go years without a simple anti-bacterial swipe. So, highly consider cleaning your keyboard every once in a while. If you want to go to extremes consider using an air canister or vacuum to get rid of all the dusts and crumbs that may have fell in-between the keys.
Don’t just clean the obvious surfaces and objects anymore. Clean these forgotten items with these quick tips to help make your home a healthier and safer place to live!
Having a clean environment not only makes you feel good, but also makes for a more productive workspace. Also, a tidy work area that is seen by clients and customers is important in the way you present yourself. This gives off the impression that you take pride and care about your business. By having a clean environment, clients are more inclined to put their trust in someone who “has their act together.” Therefore, it is highly important to consider the right commercial cleaning service to take care of all your needs.
In any commercial building, the floors see constant traffic whether it is from workers or clients. Think about all the dirt dragged in and scratches your floors take each day. No matter how durable your floors are, they are bound to take a toll. You want your clients to be impressed when they first walk through your establishment.
1. Make sure the company is insured, protecting them from any damages. By hiring a fully insured commercial cleaning company it protects both parties when it comes to any accidents or damages.
2. Trusting a company in your environment could leave you anxious. Having confidential paperwork or information around the office could be risky if you do not trust the cleaning service with your belongings, or other people’s information for that matter. For peace of mind you could go the extra mile and see if the cleaning service you wish to hire conducts background checks on employees, relieving you from any stress when you’re not in the office.
3. Make sure the cleaning service company has references. This is the best way you can get a feel for the company allowing for first hand reviews from former and current customers.
Whether they are insured, if background checks are done on employees, and if references are supplied is a good indicator and start when hiring a commercial cleaning service company. Feeling comfortable with these responses and trusting them in your workplace not only provides you with a clean workplace, but puts on a good image for clients who are visiting. This is just one step in the right direction to having a successful business.
