The 5 Newest Trends in Commercial Cleaning

As the seasons change, it’s time for commercial facilities to embark on annual spring-cleaning. This year, new trends are shaping the future of facility management, from integrating more sustainable cleaning practices to harnessing the power of technology. Let’s explore five trends in commercial facility cleaning to consider in building your spring-cleaning checklist:

1. More Sustainable Cleaning Practices

More sustainable cleaning, characterized by the use of greener chemistries and methods, is becoming more and more important. By incorporating new advancements such as less harmful cleaning solutions and energy-efficient equipment, you can reduce your facility’s environmental footprint while creating a healthier indoor environment for occupants.

2. Technology and Innovation

Leverage the power of technology to streamline cleaning operations. From robotic vacuums and other floor care equipment to smart cleaning management systems, innovations in cleaning technology have revolutionized facility management. By embracing automation and real-time monitoring, you can improve efficiency while delivering better cleaning outcomes.

3. Indoor Air Quality

Make spring a breath of fresh air – prioritize indoor air quality in your facility. Poor indoor air quality can lead to respiratory issues and reduced productivity among occupants. By investing in air purification systems and high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, you can create a healthier and more comfortable environment for everyone in a workplace.

4. Enhanced Disinfection Protocols

Enhanced disinfection protocols should be a top priority for facility managers. How to practically disinfect a facility from top to bottom is a critical question, especially considering the labour implications for time-stretched cleaning teams. That’s where electrostatic cleaning equipment and antimicrobial coatings come in. They provide better protection against pathogens quickly and efficiently, and can maintain protection for longer periods.

5. Employee Health and Well-being

Spring cleaning isn’t just about tidying up a physical space—it’s about taking care of the people in it, and the people who clean it. Provide training and support on proper cleaning techniques, implement technology innovations, establish clear cleaning protocols and feedback, and promote mental health awareness to ensure a healthy, positive and safe work environment for all.

Create cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable facilities this spring by integrating green cleaning practices, harnessing the power of technology, and prioritizing indoor air quality.
