In this page, you will discover how to Clean an Office including how to clean all general Areas, Meeting Rooms, Desks and Reception Areas. First of all, we need to point out that all cleaning processes should follow a top-to-bottom approach. This means we start cleaning from the top then work our way down. You will also not that we train all our cleaners to use different colours for different areas to avoid cross contamination. So, here we go…
DUSTING, WIPING AND COBWEBS
