The Importance of Having a Space Cleaned Before Moving Into It

If you’re moving into a new home, it’s likely that you’re focused on selling an old home, finding financing, or purchasing furniture. It’s important, however, to not forget about prepping the new space before moving into it. Instead of tackling the job yourself, consider hiring professionals like the Cleaning Ninjas to handle all the work for you. Of course, there are some steps you can take to make the transition even smoother.

The following is a look at some of the tasks you can complete to give yourself a fresh start ahead of moving day.

#1 Hire Professional Cleaners

You’re going to be busy in the days before move-in, so remove some of the stress from your lives by hiring the Cleaning Ninjas to clean your home from ceiling to floor before you even have any furniture in the home. We offer all the standard cleaning services for move-out and move-in: dusting off ceiling fans, wiping down trim, cleaning the bathrooms, and scrubbing the floors and baseboards. In other words, having professional cleaners wipe away all the dirt from the previous owners will give you nice, clean home to move into, almost as if it were brand new!

#2 Clean the Carpets

While the Cleaning Ninjas can vacuum your carpets for you, hiring a carpet cleaning service might not be a bad idea after we’ve finished cleaning the rest of the home. This will pull any old skin cells or pet dander from the carpet and give your feet a soft, clean service on which to live and be comfortable once you’re in the new house. The place will smell a lot better, too.

#3 Buy and Install New Toilet Seats

Buying new toilet seats is an inexpensive way to give yourself a clean start in a new home. Not only do they not cost much, but they are also easy to install. Cleaning Ninjas can clean the entire bathroom, but for something like toilet seats, you may as well as start completely fresh. This may also be a good time to replace any rusted or dated hardware, cabinets, or plumbing fixtures. Remember to make these swaps before scheduling a cleaning, so our professionals can get rid of any remodeling debris or dust.

#4 Change Your Air Filters

One way to keep the previous family’s dust and dander from spreading through the house is to change the air filter in your HVAC system. While it is meant to keep those things from circulating, they can be dirty if they haven’t been changed in a while. Again, this is an inexpensive fix that could not be any easier to do, and it is yet another way to ensure your home is as clean as possible on move-in day.

How Often Should a Medical Office Be Cleaned?

It’s hard to believe now, but there was a time in medical history not that long ago when doctors hadn’t the slightest idea what bacteria was, let alone its impact on the quality of health care. Of course, now that we do understand how important it is for a medical facility to be cleaned thoroughly and consistently, it is the responsibility of those running medical facilities to ensure that they are cleaned regularly and professionally.

Deciding How Often to Schedule Professional Cleanings

The question, then, turns to just how often a medical facility should be professionally cleaned, but there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Making that decision comes as a result of answering the following questions:

  1. What’s your industry? If the building houses a medical clinic or healthcare facility, the law requires that it be cleaned and sanitized daily.
  2. How often do patients visit your office? If your office employs a lot of people and brings a lot of patients through the door each day, you will need daily cleaning. An administrative medical office that doesn’t see patients may require less frequent deep cleanings.
  3. What season of year is it? Spring and summer are much worse for people with allergies, and as pollen accumulates, you may need more frequent cleanings.

The answers to those questions should give you some indication as to how often a medical office should be cleaned, but if you need any advisement in making that decision, don’t hesitate to call us here at the Cleaning Ninjas for a consultation.

Why You Should Hire Professionals

Once you’ve determined how often to clean an office, keep in mind that commercial healthcare cleaning is best left to the professionals. Why? Well, there are a few important reasons for this, including:

  • Medical office cleaning is different from other types of cleaning. It’s not as easy as taking out the trash and sweeping the floor. There are special techniques and cleaning materials needed to do the job correctly in a medical office.
  • Specialty cleaning requires certification and special training. Because a sanitized, hygienic medical environment is required by law, the best specialty cleaners are trained and certified to do the best job possible. You can’t hire just anyone to complete this type of work, so it’s best to hire someone who specializes in medical office cleaning.
  • Cleanliness matters to customers. Patients can tell when a doctor’s office is not clean, and since cleanliness is something they expect from medical facilities, it is possible to lose patients because of a lack of clean environment.
  • Proper cleaning can save you money. Untrained staff don’t know how to properly clean a medical office, which means doing it right can take much longer. Paying specialized staff will be faster and more affordable than a non-specialty cleaning crew taking twice as long.

If you are interested in getting an estimate for your medical office’s specialty cleaning needs, give the Cleaning Ninjas a call so we can help you get on the right track toward having a clean, sanitized building that your patients and employees can appreciate.
