How Landlords Keep Office Building Garages Clean

Office Building GarageEver wonder what Landlords need to do to keep office building garages clean? Your office building parking garage is a potential breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and fungus. These contaminants will not only affect your employees’ health but also their productivity! Landlords  take steps to clean the garage, but what do they do? We’ll share some best practices in this article.

Pressure Washers

A pressure washer is a great way to clean the garage. It will remove all of the dirt, dust, and debris from the surface. There are 4 kinds of gun pressure washers that are the most common. They include electric, gas-powered, cold water, and hot water pressure washers.

The best one to use for cleaning those hard-to-get spots in a garage is the electric pressure washer. It is more affordable than the other types of pressure washers and it is easy to use. You just need to plug it into an outlet and you are ready to go. The electric pressure washer produces a high level of pressurized water that will quickly clean the surface.

There are also truck mounted pressure washing systems that are eco friendly. Some even bring in their own water and vacuum up 98% of it at the end of cleaning, to be recycled for future use. Of course, a gun pressure washer will still be needed for the hard-to-get places that a truck can’t get to.

Grime Seals

Grime seal is a great product for cleaning the garage floor. It will make it look new again and protect against further staining or damage to the surface. This type of floor coating can be applied both indoors and outside. You just have to apply one coat with a roller, allow time for drying, then apply another coat in the opposite direction with a brush. The grime seals are available in several different colors so you can choose what color looks best on your garage floor depending on whether it is near an entrance or not.

Floor Coating

Floor coating is another product that will protect the garage floor against damage. It is made of a petroleum-based material which means it has great adhesive power to adhere to concrete surfaces. Floor coatings are available in several different colors, textures, and finishes so you can choose what works best for your needs depending on whether there is an entrance or not. This type of coating also does not peel up like regular paint when exposed to weather conditions over time because it adheres very well between layers.

Garage Door Cleaning

The garage door is often one of the dirtiest parts of the garage. It can get dirty from all of the dust and debris that accumulates on it over time. To clean it, you will need a ladder, bucket, hose, and soft-bristled brush. The best way to clean it is to start at the top and work your way down. Be sure to rinse off the brush frequently so that the dirt does not accumulate on it. This will make it difficult to clean later on.

Floor Mats

Floor mats are great for keeping the garage clean. They will trap all of the dirt and debris that falls to the ground as cars come in and out of it through the garage door. The best way to use floor mats is at each entrance into the garage so that people can wipe their feet before entering. This will keep any excess dirt or pollutants outside, where they cannot damage your floors indoors. It also creates a barrier between dirty shoes coming inside versus just having them touch regular flooring surfaces directly without anything to protect them first.

Brush and Dust Mop

A brush and dust mop is a great way to clean the garage floor after pressure washing it. You can use them together or separately depending on what works best for your needs. If there are areas that need more attention than others, you may just want to focus on those with the dust mop first before moving on to other surfaces. The bristles of the brush will get into any grooves in between tiles so that all loose debris is removed from them too. Then when you switch over to using a dry dust mop, this will pick up anything left behind like dirt particles and small rocks in crevices where they could scratch certain spots if not properly cleaned out beforehand.

A clean office building parking garage will not only will keep employees happy and healthy, but also impact the impression clients have when they come to visit. When you are negotiating a lease, make sure and inquire about the garage cleaning schedule.
