Why block of flats cleaning after winter is so important
Winter is on its way out, what’s left behind is dirty snow and slush. A disadvantage of winter weather is the mess it makes on the streets, on the stairs and in your tenant’s flats. Spring is on its way and it is time to clean up ready for better weather.
You can’t clean inside if the outside is still wet and slushy. The pavement in front of your building will be a mess of dirty salt-filled slush, if it is not cleaned, tenants and visitors alike will collect this slush on their shoes and tread it into the common areas and into the actual flats. The stairwell also needs to be cleaned, especially if it is not enclosed. The heavy salting it would have received to minimize the hazardous ice coating the floor, will have collected in the corners and mixed with grit and mud. There may still be flurries of snow and ice forming in the corners of the stairs, causing a hazardous ice rink. If your staircase is enclosed and has some type of flooring, it is crucial that all snow, salt and water is cleaned away, otherwise the salt mixture will cause the flooring material to rot, causing more expense for it to be replaced.
The interior central lobbies and shared areas can now be cleaned properly, if the pavement and stairs have been cleaned up of any leftover snow and ice; and any salt and sand have been removed properly there should be little chance of walking dirt in on anyone’s shoes. The cleaning upkeep of your building should now be easy to maintain. Commercial cleaning companies are fully prepared to carry out this work to the highest standards. They will professionally clean all the necessary areas inside and out. Ready for the spring weather.
