How to Deep Clean your Office

How to Deep Clean your Office


Systematically deep cleaning your workspace is crucial for maintaining a hygienic and pleasant working environment. Deep cleaning helps control the spread of infections and viruses as well as keeping tabs on clutter and dust. At Service Master NI, we know the true value of having a clean and hygienic workspace for productivity and overall health benefits. 


- What makes Deep Cleaning different from regular cleaning? 

A regular clean is designed to help maintain a certain level of cleanliness around your office. A deep clean involves a more thorough cleaning procedure. Deep cleaning will cover all the nooks and crannies, surfaces and corners in your workspace.  It is not just a daily task or a general tidy-up, it is a cleaning process which removes dirt, dust and other types of grime and bacteria that can build up in different areas over a period of time. 


A deep clean should be done at least once a year, although larger companies might find twice a year works better. If your office has a period of closure, such as over Christmas, this is the ideal time for a deep clean, as there’s nobody in the office. You can pull everything out and clean in all the hard to reach corners without disturbing staff while they’re working. 


Step 1: Clear out the office 

Remove all clutter in your office, all the unnecessary nick-nacks that have been piling up need to go. Empty all desks, cupboards and filing cabinets and don’t forget to recycle! Any furniture that can move should be gathered into the middle of the office space, exposing all the edges (and areas where dust has built up). By pulling out all the furniture and kitchen appliances, you can get behind them and reach the kind of dirt that can build up in those usually hidden areas. Cleaning hard to reach areas like this improves the air quality and the hygiene standards of the office, as there’s no mystery dirt or mouldering old food releasing bacteria and unpleasant smells into the workspace. 


Step 2: Considering the layout or the workspace and rearranging 

If your workspace becomes cluttered and untidy quite rapidly, then it is maybe time to reconsider the layout of the office and experiment with different layouts. Ask your team how could we rearrange things to make the layout more practical, functional, and easy to work in?  If people can reach drawers and shelves from their desks or have more storage space of their own at their desks, they’re more likely to use it. This stops piles of paperwork and other clutter from gathering on the desks and making the office look untidy. Small changes like this make a huge difference. 

Step 3: Dust and Disinfect

One of the big reasons a deep clean is so vital to an office is to improve the air quality. Poor air quality can mean your team will find it harder to concentrate thanks to lack of clean air and they may suffer from headaches, breathing issues, and other health problems. Make sure the office is well ventilated, and get to work with dry dusting all surfaces. Start from the top of the room; light fixtures, rails and high shelving or tall furniture first. Disinfect thoroughly to get rid of all the germs and bacteria, especially around your keyboard and office appliances. These are the areas which generate the most bacteria in the whole office. 

Although you and your team performing your own deep clean is beneficial. Service Master NI will be able to provide the most advanced cleaning technologies and processes to ensure that your office receives the deepest of cleans. With over 40 years of experience, we have a completely different and fresh approach to managing commercial cleaners and the quality of their work. Contact us today for any deep cleaning inquiries!

The Importance of Carpet Cleaning



You’d be amazed at how many people overlook the need to clean their carpets on a regular basis. Vacuuming and spot cleaning is good for the short term care of your carpet but commercial carpet cleaning is the key to the long term.  

Here are the reasons why it is so important to get your carpets professionally cleaned:  


  • Healthier Environment

    Carpets are the main gatherer of bacteria in offices, with germs, allergens, dead insects, dirt and crumbs all gathering in the fibres. This build up of bacteria filters into the air of the office and it is actually proven to increase the chance of sickness among employees.  Specifically, the dust affects employees who may suffer from asthma and those who are prone to allergic reactions. 


  • Remove Stains

    Carpet stains are unsightly for you and visitors in your home/office and can really take away from the feel of the room. Professional carpet cleaners can remove the toughest of stains and marks on carpets so that they look brand new. 



  • Improve the Smell of the Room

    There is nothing worse than the smell of a mouldy carpet. This is especially true for households with pets and young children. Vacuuming can clean your carpets but they struggle to improve the smell. With our wide range of services and equipment, ServiceMaster Clean can lightly clean a carpet and have it dry and smelling lovely in just minutes. 



  • Extend Lifespan-

    According to research, regular cleaning of your carpet can extend their lifespan by around 2 years, which is definitely worth the investment. Your carpet is subject to wear and tear everyday due to dirt being walked into your office or home. This can cause damage to the carpet fibres causing premature wear. 


Here at ServiceMaster NI, we recommend that you have your carpet professionally cleaned every 6 to 12 months to help prolong the life of your carpet and protect your investment. We use specialist equipment and cleaning solutions to remove not only dirt but, excess shampoo residue and water unlike most rented carpet cleaning equipment leave carpets wet with detergent residue. We provide a wide variety of levels of cleaning leading up to what we believe is the country's largest fleet of heavy weight truck mounted extraction systems that give the deepest clean possible!

The Key Factors that are causing a Mess in your Office

Keeping your office space clean and tidy is easier said than done. As we know, the office environment has a direct impact on employees productivity. If offices and desks are already filled with junk, it can be all-too-tempting to simply add to the existing pile of stuff. 

With this in mind, here are some of the key factors, which you should avoid, that lead to extra mess building up in your office. 



Research has shown that a third of office workers don’t leave their desks to eat lunch. As a result, food particles smear across your desk, mouse, phone and even in between the keys of keyboards. The mess left by food doesn’t just look bad, it smells bad and could cause health hazards. Office kitchens offer shared spaces for your employees to store and prepare food, and things like the microwave and the sink can become dirty and unpleasant. 



With people coming in and out for meetings in an office, it is inevitable that a mess is going to be caused. Between coffee cups and plates, the office always ends up looking like a bombsite. After a day of continuous meetings, nobody can be bothered cleaning up and the mess just gets moved to the office kitchen sink, or left for another day. 



Paper creates a lot of mess around the office. Sticky notes, reports and documents buildup over time and create a huge clutter if not cleaned. These must be dealt with regularly to keep the volume down, however it’s something which often gets overlooked. Spending just a few minutes every day sorting papers into ones to recycle and ones to keep can prevent this from becoming an issue. 


Poor Cleaning Standards 

If the standard of cleaning in your office is poor then you are never going to get rid of the mess that keeps building up. It is every employees’ responsibility to maintain a good standard of cleanliness within the workspace. Your office culture needs to be one that makes keeping the workplace tidy a necessity. 


If your office always looks dirty and messy, maybe it’s time to invest in a professional cleaning service like ServiceMaster NI. Our skilled team can handle all the messes that you don’t have time to address to keep your workplace hygienic and productive.  With over 40 years cleaning experience, we use the most advanced cleaning technologies and processes to ensure that you will be completely satisfied with the service we provide.

How can Commercial Cleaning improve your overall office environment

Due to the decline in face-to-face meetings, many businesses have neglected the importance of cleanliness in their offices. Even though office cleaning  isn’t the most exciting aspect of a business, it is still an extremely important part of the everyday productivity of a company.  Commercial Cleaning is an easy way to sort this problem.  


Here is how commercial cleaning can improve your office: 



Imagine working everyday surrounded by clutter and mess? Spending your office time hunting for documents and becoming distracted by the mess surrounding you. Studies have shown that employees who are more likely to feel well disposed to an employer who invests in them, prompts them to make more effort in their roles. Creating a clean, organised workspace can therefore increase your employees concentration levels. It also removes potential distractions during meetings. Less time wasted ultimately means a more streamlined office process!



An office should be an extension of your brand, even if your clients don’t usually see that side of your business. It is always important to remember that your employees spend more time at work during their waking hours than at home (on average), so helping them to keep positive is a necessity. An untidy workspace sparks a negative atmosphere, by having your office commercially cleaned on a regular basis you will transform your workplace environment. 



Indoor spaces, if not ventilated and aired out regularly can become stagnant and polluted. Air quality has a big effect on your cognitive function. Regular commercial cleaning, with the occasional deep clean will clear your office air free of built up dust and leave your work environment feeling fresh. 


ServiceMaster NI provides commercial cleaning services across Northern Ireland. We take great pride in delivering a professional cleaning service together with exceptional customer service.
