Things To Consider When Cleaning Your Co-working Space

If you’re running a coworking space, keeping such a high-traffic property clean and organized might be one of your biggest concerns. Many people share space in a co-working setup, so it’s hard to maintain cleanliness and hygiene inside the property. Squeezing time for cleaning and tidying up may be a challenge when there’s too much going on in a busy space like this.

If you’re running a coworking space, keeping such a high-traffic property clean and organized might be one of your biggest concerns. Many people share space in a co-working setup, so it’s hard to maintain cleanliness and hygiene inside the property. Squeezing time for cleaning and tidying up may be a challenge when there’s too much going on in a busy space like this.

However, as the boss, it’s your responsibility to ensure that the area is always clean for those working in the space. So, you have to set regular cleaning schedule in this shared working space.

There are things you need to consider before doing that, such as:

1. Consider Your Neighborhood and Overall Environment

Since a co-working space is shared by different people, you have to consider each and every one of them when having the space cleaned. One person may be allergic to the smell of cleaning solutions, while others may be easily distracted by the presence of cleaners mopping or wiping down desks.

As much as possible, ask the cleaners to keep noise levels at a low, professional volume to avoid distracting other people. Also, make sure that the cleaners are not causing any disruptions or interruptions for those working.

2. Consider If the Cleaning Process Will Be Safe

If you’ve scheduled the cleaning process during business hours, make sure that it will be safe for everyone. For example, cleaners should only use non-harmful cleaning solutions when cleaning the co-working space to prevent triggering any allergies.

If the cleaning schedule is after business hours, you should also ensure that it will be safe for the cleaners. Everything should be well-lit so that cleaners can see clearly and prevent accidents. You can also install security cameras and have a gatekeeper to monitor incoming and outgoing activities.

3. Consider Hiring a Professional When Cleaning the Co-Working Space

Your employees are busy running the space. Unless they’re trained to do deep cleaning in your co-working space, don’t burden them with the cleaning tasks. Let professional cleaners do it so your employees won’t have to deal with all the hassles associated with cleaning.

Also, if you consider hiring a professional cleaning company, you can ensure that the space will be cleaned and sanitized deeply. There will be no mold, dust, mites, and animal dander that can trigger allergies, making the co-working space safe for you, your employees, and the people working in the space. Just make sure to look at their menu of best cleaning practices to be sure they’re sanitizing surfaces with chemically sensitive, non-toxic products.

Conclusion

Keeping your co-working space is imperative, especially since different people go in and out of it daily. There may be pathogens lurking around that your in-house staff might be missing, especially if cleaning is not really their specialty. You don’t want to compromise everyone’s health, so invest in the services of a professional cleaning company. This way, your co-working space will be a healthy environment where everyone can be happy, productive, and thriving.
