When you perform janitorial tasks with your commercial cleaning business, ever consider cleaning the fabric on cubicle partitions? It’s a simple task and can improve the look and the air quality of your work space. Keep reading, and I’ll show you how to clean cubicle wall partitions.
Ah, the fabric on the office cubicle dividers! Let’s be honest here, as general cleaning contractors, it never occurs to us to clean the fabric on our customer’s cubicle office dividers. I mean really. We focus more on dusting the top and around the hard surface panels.
That’s it. Never the fabric.
Well, the fabric holds even more dust than the hard surface. It collects more germs, dust mites, and allergens which causes more sick days for your customers and you. (I say you because you empty their trash cans, remember?)
And, having stains on these things is hideous. Right?
Wouldn’t we do our commercial cleaning customers justice by offering to clean the fabric on their cubicle dividers? After all, they’re the ones sitting there on average of 8 hours a day.
Let’s see just how simple of a task this can be.
Clean office cubicle dividers for these 3 main reasons
- Remove allergens, dust, dust mites, and germs.
- Improve the air quality of “your work space too”.
- It makes the office look better.
BONUS: It makes you look better too! It brings value to your professional janitorial service. How? Because providing a multitude of services proves that you are a one-stop shop for your customers.
Additionally, you don’t have to rent an upholstery cleaning machine to clean the fabric on office cubicle dividers. You can simply vacuum. Or, vacuum and damp wipe.
Take this detail cleaning of office cubicle dividers as “deep” as you feel comfortable.
Just understand this though… get paid for it!
See, cleaning the office cubicle dividers is an “extra task” so, you should get paid “extra money”. Okay?
Using your professional cleaning skills is not a way to save the world! It is a way to make a living. And your customers understand this – they know that nothing is free.
So when you make the offer to provide this “deep/detail” cleaning to your commercial cleaning clientele, be sure to attach a price for your estimated time.
Materials you’ll need to clean
- Vacuum with upholstery attachment
- Bucket with warm water and disinfecting soap. (I like Thieves!)
- Non-scratch scour pad
- GOOD MUSIC or an e-book (not kidding)
How to clean fabric cubicle partitions
Instructions to clean fabric office partitions
- Vacuum first all around even underneath the partition.
- Dip your towel in the water solution, wring tight, and lightly wipe.
*** Gotta stop here. There is a thing to wash walls from bottom to top, then rinse from top to bottom. Buuuut, since this is wiping fabric walls, I would say, to lightly damp wipe from top to bottom. Okie Dokie! This would also prevent the carpet from getting too wet.
- If you choose to really go for it, rent a machine with an upholstery attachment and just go for it. (Adhere to the instructions of whichever machine you rent.)
- Wipe the hard surface all around to remove all residue.
That’s it! We encourage you to take your professional cleaning just a little deeper and consider to provide this extra service to your office cleaning customers.
