Here’s Your Preventative Fall Cleaning To-Do List

Fall is here, and you know what that means: falling rain, falling temperatures, falling leaves and debris. It can get messy and keeping your facility clean during the transitional seasons can be a challenge. But, it’s important not to let fall detritus build up—or you could end up facing even bigger problems later. A little preventative fall cleaning and maintenance can help your building weather the coming winter, and now is the ideal time to take care of some of those semi-annual maintenance tasks that help keep your facility in top shape.

To protect the longevity of your property, both inside and out, we recommend adding the following services to your regular commercial cleaning plan.

Pressure washing to remove leaves and moss

Wet, decomposing leaves on your property are bad news for everyone. Not only do they pose a slip hazard for visitors, but they can leave behind ugly stains. Moss growth on roof overhangs, fences and parking lots is another common occurrence that can turn into a bigger problem if left unchecked.

Adding pressure washing services to your preventative fall cleaning routine will help nip these problems in the bud. By staying on top of leaf and moss removal, you can help keep your building looking crisp and clean.

Gutter, roof drain and downspout inspection to avoid clogs

Fall debris has a nasty habit of clogging up your gutters just when you need them most—and no one wants to walk under an overflowing gutter to enter your building. Keeping your gutters, roof drains and downspouts clear during the rainy season is essential.

We recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year, and fall is the perfect time to do it. If your building has a flat roof, plan on checking roof drains just as frequently as you check the gutters. Ask your cleaning company to add a gutter, roof drain and downspout inspection to your fall maintenance plan to help spot potential problems before they become headaches.

Floor maintenance to protect against moisture 

No matter how hard you try to keep the exterior of your building clean, there’s no stopping the moisture, mud and leaves from getting tracked into your building. Consider boosting the frequency of mopping, vacuuming and carpet cleaning throughout the fall to avoid letting dirt and debris linger on your flooring. 

Got moisture-sensitive flooring that needs occasional polishing, finishing or other protective treatment? Ask your cleaning company to take care of that now to protect your floors throughout the rainy season. Another great preventative fall cleaning task: give your floors their semi-annual deep cleaning.

Window washing to clear away the grime

Sunlight will be in short supply for the next several months, and you don’t want grimy windows to block a single ray. Wash off the dust and pollen of summer and maximize the natural light in your building by scheduling your annual or semi-annual window cleaning. Your janitorial company can help you determine the right window washing schedule for your facility.
