Cold weather poses particular challenges to keeping your business clean and dry. Winter storms cause problems with wet floors, while sand and salt used to melt ice can make floors gritty. Not only do dirty floors create an unsightly environment, but they also create slick surfaces that could cause customers and employees to slip and fall. Taking care of your floors is essential, but it’s not the only area of your office that needs extra attention. Here are tips to keep your office clean during the cold months. 


COVID-19, the flu, and the common cold run rampant during winter. Cleaning and disinfecting your office equipment, especially phones, keyboards, countertops, tables, doorknobs, public areas, and high-touch points, is vital to help stop the spread of viruses and germs. Professional commercial cleaning services like Integrity Janitorial Cleaning Services can do the job for you with high-quality cleaning and disinfecting products that leave your office clean and sanitized. Keeping germs under control prevents employee sickness and prevents loss of productivity due to sick days.


Keeping your hard floors mopped and carpets vacuumed is an excellent way to keep your office clean during the cold months. Not only does it prevent people from slipping and falling on slippery floors, but it also keeps moisture levels down. While you may need to mop customer areas more frequently throughout the day to prevent safety issues, an office commercial cleaning service can shampoo your carpets or polish floors after business hours. Integrity Janitorial Cleaning Services can advise you on how to keep your floors looking good during the day and over the life of your floor.


It may be tempting to skip the window services in the cold months because of frequent storms, but the aftermath of those storms is why you need to keep them clean. Dirty windows look cloudy and reduce the sunlight in the office building, which means less natural light and passive heat make it inside. Natural light promotes productivity and boosts the mood of both your employees and customers. During the dark days of cold months, a boost of bright sunlight from the windows can breathe new life into your business. Sunlight also helps to dry floors and keep excess moisture under control. Keeping your windows clean during the cold months lightens the mood and makes a good impression on customers.

Air Quality

Your office can get stuffy and suffer from air quality issues during the cold months with the windows and doors closed. But you can solve the problem by installing an air cleaner or dehumidifier in your office. You can also help air quality by keeping plants that remove toxins from the air and effectively control indoor air fresh. Some good plants for this include ficus, English ivy, and peace lilies. These plants all thrive in the low-light conditions common in offices. Placing plants in work areas, break rooms, and lobbies brings a touch of nature inside and help prevent problems with poor air quality.
