When thinking about commercial cleaning services, do you remember to think about making sure they clean the doors to your building? Doors are some of the most touched and used items that are attached to a commercial building. Anytime someone goes in or out of the office, restroom, building, file room, break room, or copy room, that person has to open and close the door. Dark doors won’t show the dirt and fingerprints as easily as lighter-colored doors, but that doesn’t mean that the dirt and germs aren’t there. Because these are such high-traffic areas, they are prone to bacteria and viruses that could be easily spread between everyone in the office.
Whether you have a commercial cleaning company that comes in and performs regular janitorial services, or if you keep it all in-house, it is important to make cleaning the doors in your office a priority. There isn’t much that goes into cleaning office doors. In fact, all you need are a few simple cleaning supplies: disinfectant cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Spray the disinfectant solution on the surface of the door, and wipe off with the microfiber cloth. For spots that are very dirty and refuse to come off, use a little bit of elbow grease, with a soft pad or soft brush. The dirt should come right off. Be sure not to fight the dirt too hard that the paint starts to come off instead.
One area that is frequently forgotten about is the top edge of the doorframe. You’d be surprised by how much dirt can be found in areas that are not visible, and therefore not cleaned. Another area that you’ll want to pay specific attention to, is the doorknob. The doorknob is the most used aspect of the door that everyone touches, making it the perfect breeding ground for germs to spread to the next unsuspecting individual to touch it. It is recommended to use a disinfectant or antibacterial spray to clean, especially during cold and flu season.
