Several factors determine the amount and frequently of cleaning needed for your facility. For example, food preparation premises require much more rigorous cleaning than an office. Even in an office, break rooms and toilets require regular cleaning. If you are a business owner, you must consider the frequency and types of cleaning task that best suit the requirements of your business.
Daily Cleaning Schedule
When open for business, it is common to need daily cleaning. If your office is open Monday to Friday, then it shouldn’t be necessary to have cleaning done on a weekend. If you have a lot of incoming foot traffic in your facility, then daily cleaning will be essential, but if you have quiet days then you may be able to reduce the amount of cleanings during the week.
Waste bins should be emptied every day. You never know exactly what employees and visitors will put in the garbage, and there may be items that spoil overnight. Only by emptying and replacing bin bags, can you be sure that these items are removed. Having cleaners collects bins at the end of the day should prove adequate coverage for a business with only minimal cleaning demands.
A daily cleaning service can dust fixtures and kept common areas like the reception room, toilets and kitchen looking spotless for visitors and sanitary. For a daily cleaning service, it’s routine to have them visit either before or at the end of the working day.
Window washing, carpet cleaning, and wall washing doesn’t have to be completed on a daily basis. For example your facility cleaning schedule should include carpet cleaning on days when nobody is in the office. Window cleaning is best done on a weekend or days when workers will not be close to the windows.
Another weekly item for cleaning is hard floors. Buffing and polishing machines can get in the way of your staff and be distracting due to their noise. Since hard floors show scuff marks, you may need a weekly cleaning schedule to keeps marks to a minimum and allow the cleaners to be able to do the job while the office is empty.
Dust and Hazards
Desks, and especially electrical and electronic equipment, accumulate dust quickly. This looks unsightly and can pose a hazard. Too much dust around computers can cause them to overheat and may even lead to fires.

You should set a cleaning schedule that matches the needs of your employees, visitors and business.
