It is a common assumption that a professional cleaning company isn’t needed to keep a workplace clean. Right?


Business owners and managers feel if there is a staff member who tidies up and does a quick clean each day, you don’t need a professional cleaner. However, this is not the case. On average, we spend more time in our workplace than anywhere else. For this reason, no matter the industry you work in, a workplace should be kept clean and sterile to protect the health and safety of you and your staff.

 A daily clean of a workplace versus a deep clean are very different. Read on to learn more including:

  • What is a deep clean?
  • How can deep cleaning reduce the spread of germs?
  • How can deep cleaning save me money in the long term?

What is a deep clean?

Deep cleaning ensures every corner and surface is fully cleaned and sanitised. A simple wipe over the bathroom sinks, wash over the kitchen counters and vacuum over a floor is not deep cleaning. Deep cleaning involves thorough cleaning to eliminate dirt, mould and environmental pollutants from flooring, surfaces and furniture. For a thorough deep clean to be achieved, workplaces should hire a professional cleaning company who have the training, experience and equipment to ensure a deep clean is done correctly. South West Cleaning are trained with years of experience and will make sure your workplace is deep cleaned including hard to reach places.

How can deep cleaning reduce the spread of germs?

Dirty office makes you sick

Have you noticed one person off sick on a Monday, soon turns into half the office away by Friday? With many people all working in a confined space and sharing bathrooms, kitchens and meeting rooms, contagious bugs and germs are easily spread from person to person. With winter just around the corner and the coughs, colds and flus that come with winter, deep cleaning is an effective way to help reduce the spread of germs and increase the hygiene levels in a workplace. Now is the time to enlist the services of a professional cleaning company. South West Cleaning also offer their services before and after business hours, allowing employees to stay focused and avoid being distracted from their work.

How can deep cleaning save me money in the long term?

While hiring a professional cleaner is a business expense that many people think they can do without, it can in-fact save you money in the long term. How? Deep cleaning involves thoroughly cleaning surfaces such as carpets and hard floors plus office equipment, upholstery and window coverings. Having these items deep cleaned means they will stay looking like new for longer and won’t need to be replaced as often, saving you money in the long term.
