When it comes to commercial cleaning services, most people tend to overlook doors and the importance of having them regularly and adequately cleaned. Doors are one of the most touched and used objects in a commercial building. Whenever someone enters or exits the building, office, restroom, copy room, file room, or break room, they have to open and close a door. While dark-colored doors may not show fingerprints and dirt like lighter doors, this doesn’t mean that dirt and germs aren’t present. Considering that doors are high-traffic areas, they are often ridden with germs, bacteria, and viruses that can be easily spread from one person to another in the workplace.
Regardless of if you’ve hired a commercial cleaning service that visits your establishment and does regular commercial janitorial services, or you have an in-house cleaning team, cleaning the doors in your building should be made a priority. After all, cleaning office doors is a simple task. All that is required are just a few common cleaning supplies to get the job done: a disinfectant cleaner and a microfiber cloth. You just have to spray the disinfectant cleaner on the door’s surface and wipe using the microfiber cloth. If there are spots that are too dirty or prove to be stubborn, some bit of elbow grease with a soft brush or pad should be effective. It will help to get the dirt right off. However, don’t overdo it to avoid destroying your paintwork.
The door frame’s top edge is one of the most frequently overlooked areas when cleaning the office. But such areas that are hidden from sight tend to accumulate a lot of dirt that ends up not being cleaned. The doorknob is another area that you’ll want to pay special attention to. As you are aware, the doorknob is the most used part of the door. Considering that everyone using the door has to touch it, it provides an ideal breeding ground for germs to spreads to all the other people who touch it. It is highly advised to use an antibacterial or disinfectant spray, particularly in the cold or flu season.
