5 Things You Forget To Clean At Your Workplace

By | Cleaning

Workplace cleanliness is important for more reasons than just sanitary purposes. A study found that clutter and overstimulation have a detrimental effect on one’s attention and efficiency. Because cleanliness reduces clutter, the brain can concentrate on the task at hand. Still on productivity, hiring a professional cleaning service keeps bacteria at bay, meaning that diseases caused by unsanitary conditions are minimized which cuts down on sick days among your employees. While most office managers understand the essence of maintaining cleanliness, several places easily get overlooked:

1.     Computer Screen, Keyboard, & Mouse

When is the last time you cleaned these computer parts? In truth, most offices barely remember to clean computer parts. Yet, a research conducted by the University of Arizona found that computer parts, particularly the ones mentioned here, contain three to four times more germs than the average office toilet seat. Contributory reasons include poor personal hygiene practices like failure to wash hands and also people eating lunch at their desks.

2.     Door Knobs

Doorknobs are one of the most highly contacted surfaces at the workplace yet also one of the most neglected when it comes to regular cleaning.  In reality, doorknobs hold lots of bacteria and viruses that can survive for weeks. As every single person at the office touches the knobs when entering and exiting the office, bacteria will spread from one person to the other pretty quickly. Bacteria aside, doorknob surfaces will also hold onto oils from people’s hands. Over time, the oils will attract more germs and foreign particles.

3.     Coffee Machine

A nice cup of coffee for your employees is a perfect way to increase bonding in the office or better still, fight off sluggishness. While the coffee machine is a great investment to have at workplaces, if it doesn’t get a regular, thorough cleaning, it’s likely going to cause sickness among workers. The coffee maker’s water reservoir and piping system make a great environment for bacteria and moulds. If there’s obvious slimy stuff in the coffee maker, something is growing in there and you need to stop it!

4.     Plants

Studies show that flowers and plants increase employees’ productivity by 50 percent. Going back to science, flowers, and plants through the process of photosynthesis, absorb the carbon dioxide in the air and release oxygen thereby purifying the air. Breathing in purified air results in increased happiness, mood boosts, and concentration. Plants, though, can accumulate a lot of dust and require regular cleaning, otherwise, you’ll end up dealing with allergies and respiratory problems instead of enjoying all the perks of having some nature in the office.

5.     Fans

Fans play a crucial role in improving circulation at the workplace. But when in operation, it’s hard to see the amount of dust accumulation on each blade so it’s no wonder they get forgotten in normal office cleaning. The problem with a dirty fan is that instead of circulating clean air, the fan will be circulating dirty and dust mite filled air. The impact of polluted air is increased allergies and respiratory illnesses among the employees.

Germs are present in every corner of our lives. At Anago Cleaning Systems, we try to keep them at bay by tackling sneaky spots where they like to hide. For more information on how to make your office sparkle through and through, give us a call at (204) 594-4666.

Cleaning for Child Care Centres

By | Cleaning

There’s one thing kids share unbiasedly, and that’s germs. Children are more prone to spreading germs and catching diseases because, at a young age, they are exposed to unhygienic behaviors like poor hand-to-mouth habits, mouthing objects, and undeveloped personal hygiene habits like failing to wash their hands properly after visiting the toilet. This is what makes cleaning a childcare centre different from any other cleaning. To reduce susceptibility to illness, childcare centres must maintain top-notch cleanliness.

A Three-Pronged Approach

Cleaning a childcare centre goes beyond merely clearing dust off surfaces. Remember, as aforementioned, kids, unlike adults haven’t developed their hygienic habits, so one aim of cleaning is to ensure that everything in their surroundings is germ-free. Professional cleaning will, therefore, involve basic cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing. Let me explain:

Cleaning is the mechanical/physical removal of accumulated grease, dirt and debris from surfaces. But this is just basic cleaning which means that some germs (these are invisible to the eyes) are still left on the surface. Cleaning may be suitable for many low-risk areas in the childcare centre like the walls, but high-risk surfaces like the toys, toilets and nappy change areas need to be sanitized or disinfected soon after cleaning and rinsing the area.

Sanitizing is using a chemical to inactivate or reduce germs to a level unlikely to cause the spread of disease. Disinfecting, on the other hand, requires stronger chemicals that virtually kill all the germs. In essence, sanitizing reduces and minimizes germs but does not kill the growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi – it’s disinfecting that does that. Food contact surfaces, dishes, and toys that children put into their mouth should be sanitized after cleaning. Surfaces such as toilets and diaper areas that don’t come into contact with the mouth should be disinfected. It’s also worth noting that the only sanitizers and disinfectants used in childcare settings should be only those permitted by law.

Specific Areas of Cleaning

To maintain high standards of cleanliness, childcare centres should follow a thorough cleaning routine every day. Tiles and vinyl floors should be vacuumed and swept daily. At least once every week, they should be wet-mopped using detergent and warm water. Toddler dining areas should be mopped daily and carpeted areas vacuumed daily. In infant and toddler areas, the carpeted areas should be steam-cleaned at least quarterly. The rest of the carpeted areas can be wet or steam cleaned twice annually.

The bathroom surface is one of the most sensitive areas in a childcare centre. All bathroom surfaces like wash basins, tap handles, toilet flush handles/buttons, toilet seats, etc. should be washed at least once daily or more often if visibly soiled. Toilets should be cleaned and disinfected after each use and the floors should be cleaned and disinfected at the end of each day.

Any fabrics like towels, linens and pillows need to be washed and sanitized before being allocated to a specific child. Children centres should adopt a procedure for cleaning fabrics to prevent the spread of germs and staph infections.

This article is just a peek into the intense cleaning that goes on in a childcare centre –  there’s even more that goes on! That’s why Anago will work with you to create a cleaning plan custom-tailored to meet your centre’s needs. Keep in mind, detailed processes must be followed when cleaning childcare centres.

Carpet and Upholstery Care

By | Cleaning

Carpet and upholstery are an integral part of any home; they bring a sense of warmth and improve the ambiance in a space. To extend their years of service, high-quality janitorial services are requisite for their cleanliness and maintenance. To keep your carpets and upholstery fabrics in great shape, you need to know when a thorough cleaning is due.  How can you tell?

Bad odor

You know that your carpet and upholstery need attention if they are smelly. Owing to their superior ability to absorb almost anything, carpets and upholstery tend to absorb spills that end up causing a bad odor over time. Dust particles will also make their way past the top layer of the carpet to hide underneath. Damp carpets and upholstery, if left untreated, will likely encourage the growth of harmful mold and fungus. This can prove detrimental to your health especially if you’re asthmatic or have other respiratory issues. Having a cleaning company come in once every few months can save you and your family a whole myriad of health problems.

Frequent Allergy Attacks

As aforementioned, dust mites, bacteria, mold, and other allergens find it conducive to multiply in carpets and upholstery. While vacuuming is great for eliminating any dirt and loose particles, it is not enough to clean and reach deeply into the carpet and upholstery fibers. With time these germs and impurities accumulate and end up triggering allergies and respiratory issues. You may notice that you cough and sneeze a lot when anywhere near your carpets. Your eyes may turn red and get teary owing to irritation from the microscopic mold particles in the air. Professional carpet cleaning services help you access relief by eliminating such allergens.

Your Carpet and Upholstery Appear Dull and Dirty

It may not be visible to the naked eye but dust particles, pet dander, and human hair that accumulate onto the surfaces of your carpets, rugs, sofas and other fabrics all have the power to degrade and thus reduce the appearance of your home. Have you ever noticed how clean and vibrant your carpets and upholstery look when you just had them professionally cleaned? This is because cleaning professionals have special machinery, experience, and skills to remove stains and dirt, turning your dull fabrics into dirt-free bright ones.

How often you should ask for professional janitorial services? There are a few factors that may demand you get cleaning services frequently. For example, if you own a pet, you have toddlers or have a relatively high number of people in your household, you will require cleaning services more frequently, say once every month. Although it might seem much cheaper to clean your carpets and upholstery yourself, there are many downsides to consider. Different fabrics require specialized care and if you lack the skills and knowledge, you may end up damaging your costly fabrics. Instead of going through the hassle, inviting a professional cleaning company to do it for you saves you both time and money in the long run. 

Clean Environments and Mental Health

By | Cleaning

The world is on a rollercoaster on cleanliness; we can see how organized, charming and perfectly presented our office spaces are becoming today. This has transitioned our culture to the need for a more appealing environment in our homes too. As such, janitorial services are becoming more of a necessity as opposed to ‘leisure budget’ cost.

Being organized and clean goes beyond outward appearance and in essence, has a profound impact on mental health. Cluttered spaces make easy distractions which impair the brain’s ability to process information. That’s why most people report feeling unsettled when in a dirty room full of clutter. Yet processing information quickly is one of the factors that boost productivity.

It’s important for professionals to have a positive attitude at work, and if mental well-being is critical for this to happen, then bringing on board professional cleaning services to make your office more appealing is a priority. However, being well organized is challenging and it’s only made easier by creating an organizational culture that centers on cleanliness as part of your work habits. Besides, good organization warrants every file is in its place and you can easily track every unfinished business without feeling too anxious about what you left undone. In a nutshell, you can give a good progress report at the end of any business day without spending too much on that process.

Now, keeping things clean is not just relevant for your home or workplace but is also instrumental for your mental wellness. A study done on the psychology of the home showed that people who thought their homes to be teemed with ‘unfinished business’ or ‘cluttered’ felt more fatigued and depressed when they got home. In comparison to individuals who thought their homes were ‘restorative’ and ‘restful’, this cohort showed higher levels of mental well-being and happiness. These findings bring clarity to the discussion of why mental well-being is critical in productivity for any professional. Also, it was noted that if individuals engaged in habitual cleaning, they felt more optimistic – even after a series of failures; tidying up was also observed as a sign of confidence and self-esteem for these individuals.

Why does it seem so hard to get or stay organized if being clean is as important as it seems? When you get to the office, your focus is solely on the task ahead and not necessarily how clean the office is. As such, most professionals sort of ‘lack’ the time to clean, and the truth is, making your office well organized could take quite some time. That on its own is determined by how much size of clutter you’ve accumulated, which echoes discouragement even before you get started.

So, when we grow into a space that isn’t ritually cleaned or organized, the human routine of changing that environment to become clean and organized requires prioritizing those two as a task in the office. In return, people who work in the same office not only fix their bad habits but also generally improve their mental well-being. Therefore, it is critical to have a reestablishment of what you’ll consider a clean and productive environment if you are to make strides towards improving your organizational culture in that sense.

Office Floor Maintenance for Small Business Owners

By | Cleaning

When a visitor first enters your business place, what’s their perception? Often, small business owners overlook the value of floor maintenance, yet the floors, just like the walls of your office reflect on your business brand. When a visitor walks into your office, they’ll at an instance take notice of your floor (even if for a brief second). A crisp clean flooring builds a sense of trust with your guests increasing their chances of doing business with you; dirty floors do the opposite. Aside from enhanced appearance, professional commercial cleaning and floor maintenance is also mandatory for smooth operations. Keep in mind, office floors endure constant traffic hence collect more dust and dirt. Here’s is how you maintain your office floors for positive branding.

It starts with regular cleaning

Cleaning the office floor regularly may seem obvious but it’s a mandatory office floor maintenance practice most business owners love to ignore. We’ve already mentioned that clean floors enhance your office space appearance, but even more, when it comes to floors, safety takes precedence. Cleanliness and safety are intertwined in this way: When you skip cleaning the floor, tiny particles of dust accumulate on the floor over time. As people walk around the office, the particles are swept around like sandpaper; they slowly erode the floor’s friction needed for proper footing. The result is a hazardous flooring that poses a risk to anyone who enters your facility. Making floors less hazardous therefore calls for regular cleaning.

Creating office maintenance culture in the office

Whether it’s an open space office setup or small cubicles, dragging furniture on the floor causes ugly scratches and indentations. Your employees need to understand the essence of great office maintenance practices. And since great company cultures rarely form on their own, engrain this culture by having some discussions on how maintaining the office impacts on business performance as a whole. If your office furniture demands constant movement, use sliders. These are special pads made of either rubber or plastic, that fit underneath furniture legs. Sliders enable furniture to glide across the floor without scratching it.

Installing a heavy-duty office mat

It’s at the entrance that most dirt finds its way into the office. Placing a doormat at every entrance point in your business premises is a simple solution that prevents the amount of soil, dirt, and moisture from getting into the office. You can place heavy-duty mats in the main entrances and regular ones inside the building in places such as near the steps and elevator shaft. Mats not only reduce the amount of dirt getting into the office but also make workplaces cozier. You can always play around with colors to add a sense of style into your office. And better still, non-skid mats prevent falls and injuries in case of spills.  Still on mats, to create transitional surfaces that shield floors from everyday activities, invest in office chair mats. Office chair mats are made from durable plastic and other than protecting the floor from wreak, they also provide easy chair maneuver and ergonomic support. Of course, the office mats need also regular cleaning too otherwise they won’t be of much help in the floor maintenance efforts. 

As a small business owner, you already have a lot on your plate. Hiring a commercial cleaning company to take care of your all your office cleaning needs will help you stay focused on the core duties of your business.  

Cleaning For Childcare Facilities

By | Cleaning

Kids are messy. You could pin it on their lack of coordination, absentmindedness, or general lack of ability to understand that if they don’t clean up, someone else will have to – no matter what the reason, the mess remains. When you’re a part of a childcare facility, be it an elementary school or a daycare, you don’t want to focus on how messy your space is; you want to focus on helping our children grow into productive, responsible members of society who clean up after their own messes. Anago has janitorial services Winnipeg childcare facilities can trust; what special steps can you expect from us?

Kids are small, agile, and creative; that means the messes they make can get into really unexpected places. When we clean your space, we’ll be incredibly thorough, checking under desks, in small nooks and crannies, supply closets, and anywhere else the kids could have snuck into to make messes. We’re thorough in our cleaning process because we don’t want unexpected sights or smells to derail your day.

Immune systems are one of the more interesting challenges for cleaning services looking to work in childcare facilities. The immune systems of children aren’t as developed as those in adults, so it’s important to use cleaning products that won’t trigger health problems in kids. One way that we do this is by cleaning with green products that are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs); this lowers the chance of an adverse respiratory response in vulnerable children. We can also use HEPA filter vacuums in order to remove dust, pollen, and dander from the air, helping those with allergies and asthma breathe easier.

The weaker immune systems of children also mean antibacterial cleaning agents are a must. There is a bit of a tradeoff, though; as strange as it sounds, we do want our kids to come in contact with some germs. We recommend using antibacterial products to clean surfaces, but it may not be in your best interest to use antibacterial soaps in your facility; these can create antibiotic resistant bacteria, and might leave kids with too weak an immune system. It’s a good idea to speak with healthcare professionals about how you want your facility cleaned, and what hygienic products you want to use. No matter what the specifications or recommendations, we can customize our solution to fit you.

That last sentence applies to every element of our services; this post is about childcare facilities, an intentionally vague term. Whether you’re a school, a day care, a community center, or any other spot that takes care of groups of children, we can help you. We can stop by and clean every day, once a week, once a month; whatever you need. No place is too big or too small for us to clean. We want to help you provide the best, cleanest, most rewarding experiences for children. We trust you to care for and nurture them; trust us to care for the space you’re in, so you can focus on what’s important.

Office Recycling Tips

By | Cleaning

Here, the professional office cleaning services of Anago Cleaning Systems offers the top tips to reduce your business waste:

Concentrate on Paper Consumption

The majority of office waste comprises of paper. The greatest impact action you can take to decrease your waste includes reducing consumption of paper. The two primary actions you may take to decrease paper include setting up all printers on double-side. This simplistic action might cut your paper consumption in half.

Step two is more technical and requires capital investment in order to setup yet is worth exploring if you hire over 50 staff. It’s referred to as “FollowMe printing’ or ‘pull printing’ and essentially relies upon a user who activates a print job at a printer.

The reason it works well is that more than 30 percent of print jobs sent to a printer aren’t ever collected. This method may decrease printing volumes by a minimum of 30 percent. If that sounds like an option, speak with your printer supplier who will have the ability to give you more information.

Reuse or Reduce

Strategies for paper reduction offer an excellent chance to decrease waste yet there also are other areas in which it’s possible to reuse or reduce resources. Take some time to browse other articles in your waste stream and explore methods of reducing consumption or reusing materials.

Slowly Expand Your System of Recycling

Once you’ve exhausted your reduction and reusing options it’s then time to consider your recycling options. The best systems for recycling begin small and build on sound foundations over a period of time to become exemplary.

Always begin with card and paper recycling as it usually is the highest volume and most visible waste product inside the office. Over a period of time try and expand your recycling system to additional waste materials – plastics, glass, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, CDs, toners, furniture, food waste, IT equipment etc.

Buy Good Labelling and Bins

All of us know that offices utilize a ton of recyclable materials yet not all workplaces have designated spaces to recycle. As you present a new recycling option to your office be certain that the selection is well communicated to team members and that the recycling space is highly visible.

We suggest sourcing bins which are highly visible, look good, and are affordable. Separate waste bins for every recycling option is important because it ensures that waste streams don’t become contaminated and may be easily recycled. Use color-coded bins that are prominently displayed inside the office.

It’s helpful to include a photo of what may be disposed inside the bin and a punchy, short label that offers practical guidelines for staff members.

Remove Personal Bins

As there is a strong recycling system in place it’s important to remove as many general waste units – especially personal bins underneath each employee’s desk. The key includes having a small quantity of general waste bins that are centrally located, as well as a much greater ratio of recycling bins obtainable around the workplace.

How to Keep an Environmentally Friendly Workplace

By | Cleaning

You may be considering what measures it’s possible to take to make our earth a better place. As you spend a lot of time at work, the best place to begin is at the workplace. An eco-friendly workplace not just helps the earth, it also can increase morale and slash overhead expenses.

Take measures now towards an eco-friendlier office with tips from the Winnipeg janitorial services of Anago Cleaning Systems:

Bring in A Plant

Research shows having greenery around your office or having a plant at your office may decrease stress, as well as develop a healthier workspace. As plants absorb CO2 (carbon dioxide), as well as release O (oxygen) required to survive, having one or two plants on your office desk may do wonders.

Use Less Plastic

It is so easy to stop by the office refrigerator and get some bottled water before a meeting, yet all of that use of plastic adds up and really can damage the environment. Rather than purchasing plastic bottles for your office, dedicate yourself to putting in a water filtration unit, as well as encourage staff members to bring in reusable mugs or cups from their house.

Rely Upon the Natural Sunlight

Rather than turning on your lights each time you have to brighten up a conference room, cubicle, or office, try to open the blinds instead. Relying upon natural sunlight may decrease the utility bill at your office and sunlight also has been shown to improve productivity and moods. Before opening your blinds, see that windows are clean and steak-free to allow in more light. Consider employing a commercial cleaner business if your workplace windows need a little attention.

Keep in Mind That You Should Recycle

Everybody has an idea of the advantages of recycling, yet some staff members may not be too happy about doing this if they have to stroll across the floor just to recycle a single sheet of paper. Be certain your workplace has just as many recycle bins as it does regular garbage receptacles. Reliable janitorial services may make sure recycling never gets out of control up by correctly disposing it upon a consistent basis.

Unplug All Electronics

It isn’t enough to leave laptops and computers on standby when it is time to call it a day. Employees ought to power down and unplug all electronics before going home. It may be easier to keep them plugged in, yet phantom power may unnecessarily add to the utility bill.

Use Disinfectants Approved by the EPA

To get your place of business as clean as it can be, make certain to employ a commercial janitorial business which uses EPA-approved disinfectants. Chemicals that aren’t EPA-approved are unregulated and might be dangerous to the environment, guests, and employees. The top commercial cleaning business will routinely wipe down spaces susceptible to germs like telephones, counter tops, light switches, and door handles – yet just doing so with Environmental Protection Agency-approved cleaning solutions for the safety and health of everybody in the workplace.

Janitorial Services for Winnipeg Churches

By | Cleaning

Janitorial services by the professional cleaning service of Anago Cleaning Systems for Winnipeg churches is extremely important to assist in maintaining an attractive, clean facility.  Because after all, they say cleanliness is next to Godliness. One challenge is the management of the employee schedules to coordinate with church meetings and activities.  In general, in a church, peak usage is on weekends and in the evenings. Cleaning must be done in a frame of time after the activity which might fall outside the regular day shift.

Most churches find that employing a janitorial services contractor with expertise in working for worship centers is a cost-effective method of accomplishing this. It may free the church team from the supervising, training, and hiring of custodians. Step one in assessing janitorial services includes conducting a needs evaluation of the numerous maintenance functions.    Priority ought to be given to the public restrooms and worship area. Determine the cleaning frequency, as well as the days of the week which require coverage. It might vary from respective churches from once a week to 7 times a week. If there’s a childcare center or school, some churches use a day porter that keeps up on cleaning all throughout the day.

There are a variety of specifications the janitorial services must provide.  All spaces ought to be vacuumed to include classrooms, offices, common areas, as well as the worship center.  All hard surface flooring must be sanitized, and dust mopped each time. Bathrooms have to be completely cleaned to include all basin bowls, plumbing fixtures, toilet seats on both sides, as well as urinals outside and in.  Waste containers ought to be emptied, disinfected if necessary, and replaced with suitable trash liners. Drinking fountains ought to be polished and cleaned. Glass doors and windows must be kept free of streaks and smudges.  Those functions must be spelled out in-depth in the janitorial agreement to fit the precise needs of the worship center.

Additional considerations to make might be if there’s a need for set-ups of sound equipment or tables and chairs.  Is there a necessity for janitorial services for special occasions like funerals, weddings, etc.?

Ways to Prevent MRSA In Medical Facilities and Hospitals

By | Cleaning

MRSA: it’s a hazard that all healthcare facilities have to take diligent measures to eliminate. Use the following tips from the expert commercial cleaning professionals at Anago Cleaning Systems to assist in preventing MRSA from spreading and developing inside your facility.

MRSA: What is it?

According to the CDC, staph is a bacteria which may be found on around 1 out of every 3 people. While the majority of folks do not experience any problems, there are some cases in which staph may cause severe infections, such as pneumonia, blood infections, and wound and skin infections. If left untreated, a staph infection might cause life-threatening complications.

Antibiotics typically are an efficient staph treatment. Unfortunately, the high quantity of antibiotics provided in healthcare settings contributed to permitting staph to develop a resistance to these antibiotics. These resistant antibiotics are what are referred to as MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

MRSA infections occur most often within healthcare environments such as outpatient care centers, nursing homes, and hospitals. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention states that patients are more than likely to be infected by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus if they have any of these circumstances:

  • They’re suffering with additional health conditions.
  • They’re being treated using invasive medical devices like catheters.
  • They’re being treated close to an additional patient with MRSA.
  • They’ve been treated using antibiotics.
  • They have wounds.

While it’s still possible to treat methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, treatment is substantially more challenging. It’s why it is essential that all healthcare employees stay diligent to assist in preventing MRSA from initially spreading and developing.

How To Prevent MRSA Transmission

MRSA that is acquired in outpatient facilities and hospitals may be prevented when visitors, patients, and staff take all of the necessary precautions. Some things doctors may do to prevent MRSA involve these:

  • Do hand hygiene after, during, and before treating patients or touching bodily fluids.
  • Use the proper PPE (personal protective equipment) when needed, which includes face protection, gowns, and gloves.
  • Appropriately deal with patient laundry.
  • Restrict patients’ exposure to additional patients with MRSA.
  • Perform correct disinfecting, sanitizing, and cleaning all throughout the day.

What Should Patients Do When They Arrive Home from The Hospital?

According to the CDC, patients returning home after a stay at the hospital also can take measures to decrease their odds of obtaining a MRSA infection or spreading it to other people. Some suggested measures to take after exiting the hospital to aid in preventing MRSA involves the following:

  • Finish all of your antibiotics prescription according to the directions provided by your physician.
  • Regularly wash your hands, particularly after and before changing any bandages.
  • Clean wounds according to healthcare facility directions.
  • Don’t share personal possessions such as towels or razors.
  • Dry and wash your clothing and bedding using the warmest temperatures your direction labels permit.
  • Follow all additional directions provided by your healthcare provider.

While staff may take specific measures to restrict their patients’ exposure to harmful infections, it also is critical to begin with a clean facility. That is why Anago Cleaning Systems is committed to producing the highest standard of clean each time we enter a health facility.
