How Dirty are Your Walls?

bannernovemberMost to-do lists for facility maintenance managers are similar. They include tasks like window washing, furniture dusting, restroom disinfecting and break room sanitizing, but there is one task that is frequently ignored: washing the walls.

When thinking about surfaces that need to be cleaned, walls rarely enter the mind, but they should. All walls hold on to grime and dust and, without proper cleaning, will appear dingy over time. Even walls that appear to be smooth have a texture that holds onto dirt, particularly in facilities that house manufacturing operations.

Talk to your janitorial staff about using our cleaning supplies in Boston at least once a month to keep your walls looking their best and your facility as healthy as possible. Here are just a few reasons why it is important:

Clean Walls Create Good First Impressions

When customers walk into your facility, one of the first things they notice is its cleanliness. Dirty, dingy or damaged walls detract from otherwise clean spaces and create negative first impressions.

Clean Walls Promote Good Health

Environmental pollutants, oils from hands, dirt, smoke, dust and dead microorganisms are just some of the contaminants that stick to walls and negatively affect the air quality in your facility. Without regular cleaning, a stick film can develop and worsen the problem over time.

Clean Walls Brighten Your Facility

The light that reflects off clean walls creates an airy feeling in facilities, increases safety and decreases the need for additional lighting. Walls that are coated in dirt or grime do not adequately reflect light and create a dull, drab and dim atmosphere.

Clean Walls Last Longer

When you remove grime, dust and dirt from paint or wallpaper, these wall coverings last longer. By making time to clean walls, you’ll extend the life of these coverings and have to repaint or repaper as often.

Using a gentle cleanser on your walls once a month will improve the appearance of the walls, the life expectancy of paint and wallpaper and the health of your facility.
