There’s a lot that goes into running & managing a workplace and deep cleaning is an important piece the puzzle. Whether you’re in education, healthcare, food services, etc. deep cleaning services help create healthier work environments on top of enhancing the overall appearance and extending the life of your floors.
Deep cleaning is different from maintenance cleaning as it goes beyond surfaces to extract deeply embedded dirt, dust, and dander. Within a year, floors and upholstery take on loads of traffic creating frequent wear and tear. The best way to combat this frequent wear and tear is with, well, frequent cleaning! While a one-time deep clean may seem adequate, routine deep cleaning is the real key.

Maintenance cleaning like wiping down tables, vacuuming floors, emptying trashcans, etc. are essential tasks to keep a tidy workspace. However, this type of cleaning should be coupled with routine deep cleaning. Deep cleaning tackles layers of dirt and grime that get packed into floor fibers and grooves from day-to-day occupancy. With regular deep cleaning, you help make maintenance cleaning more effective. Not to mention, deep cleaning is provided by highly trained professionals. At Stanley Steemer, we have advanced, proprietary equipment and safe, trusted cleaning solutions. Paired with our uniquely skilled technicians, we deliver exceptional results that maintenance cleaning simply can’t.
A recent survey found that nine in ten Americans say that the cleanliness of a business is an important deciding factor for whether they’ll be a repeat customer. With routine deep cleaning, you’ll help create a professional image that visibly improves the look and feel of your business. As the saying goes, first impressions are everything and a clean atmosphere can make all the difference. No matter who walks through the doors, regular deep cleaning helps ensure you leave positive impressions on customers, guests, and clients alike. Even on short notice!
Outside of maintaining original beauty, regular deep cleaning also helps maintain the original condition of floors and upholstery for as long as possible. This translates to higher cost-savings and helps extend your capital investment. Add-ons like deodorizer and protectant also further protect your floors and upholstery by adding extra layers of defense between professional cleanings. This means you can spend less money on replacements down the road and focus on your business. At Stanley Steemer, our maintenance deep cleaning program makes this process seamless by working with your schedule to come weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or whenever else you need.
Regular deep cleaning creates a healthier, safer workplace. With heavy foot traffic day in and day out, your floors and upholstery are also packing in irritating allergens like dust and dander as well as germs. In fact, one in four buildings in the U.S. can be classified as a sick building. More so, the EPA defines the term sick building syndrome as “situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified.” These acute symptoms can include eye, nose, or throat irritation; cough; dry or itchy skin; difficulty in concentrating; fatigue; and more.
An investment in professional cleaning can also be viewed as an investment in your business’s health and wellness. At Stanley Steemer, we pride ourselves on being able to remove common allergens that can contribute to sick building syndrome. We’re data-backed and proven to remove an average of 94% of allergens from carpet, 96.5% of allergens from tile and grout, and 96% of allergens from hardwood.
We also provide disinfecting and sanitizing services that can effectively kill 99.9% of germs, including common cold and flu viruses. Using electrostatic sprayers and low-volume applicators, we can quickly deliver a cleaner, healthier business in minutes. With reoccurring services, you can help prevent the spread of illnesses year-round and particularly during flu seasons.
Beyond regular floor and upholstery cleaning, you should also be looking to have routine air duct cleaning. Air duct cleaning helps to remove pounds of buildup and contaminants that cycle through indoor air in workspaces. By extracting dust, dirt, pollen, and more, you create cleaner indoor air while also improving HVAC system efficiency. Proper ventilation is even noted by the American Lung Association as a way to create a “lung-friendly workplace.” This is especially beneficial for those with asthma and allergies which around 25 million Americans suffer from (or about 1 in 12 people).
Finally, deep cleaning and creating healthier work facilities also in turn, increases employee productivity. A study from the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine states that when health risks go down, productivity goes up. The author of the study, Laura Haglund-Howieson, also says, “the key implication is that health improvements must be maintained over time so the productivity impacts can accumulate.” By deep cleaning your business more than once a year, you can maintain these health improvements and consistently provide a work environment conducive to productivity. When employees feel 100%, this also means they can work and perform at 100%.
