Maybe you have an in-house team that cleans your facilities and you are too busy to walk behind them to see if they are doing a good job. Maybe you have a professional cleaner that is cutting corners on their way to their next client. Below are 10 of the top places we discover that in-house cleaning teams and mediocre professional cleaners miss…

Behind Printers and Copy Machines

The high performance copiers and printers leave behind a lot of tiny particles that accumulate over time. The machines are large and  it can be a bit of a pain to move them, so those spaces can get overlooked pretty easy.

Baseboards/Back Splashes

To check you can run your finger on top of baseboards and counter top back splashes to see if they are clean or not. Dust and grime can accumulate quickly and end up in your HVAC system which will create a back indoor air environment.


When heating systems are in constant use they attract dust, allergens and other particles to stick to the heating vents and cold air exchange intakes on walls, ceilings, floors and especially in bathrooms and kitchens.

Ceiling tiles

Acoustic ceiling tiles have a rough texture that loves to collecting dust especially the tiles near vents.

Ceiling Fan Blades

Dust and particles in the air stick to fan blades like glue. Not only does it look bad, it’s spreads this dust and particles as far as it can throw them.

Light fixtures

Bugs love to end their lives on and near fluorescent light fixtures! Light fixtures on walls and desks also accumulate a lot of dust.


Textured or Wallpapered walls collect the most dust but you’d be amazed how much dust you can find on walls behind open doors and in less traveled areas of you office or facility.


The corners of stairways and stairwells attract dust, salt, and debris brought in on the shoes of your employees, vendors, and customers.

Switch plates and Door Knobs

These are illness spreading mistakes waiting to happen. es are possible no matter the time of year. Everyone is touching these areas so they need to be cleaned regularly.  Contamination of just one single doorknob can spread germs to an entire office within hours.


Pull out a chair or couch cushion and look at the top and bottom. Notice a difference? If a chair has its back to a wall, pull it out and compare the unseen side with the used side. Upholstery needs a scheduled steam cleaning at least a couple times a year.
