How to Ensure the Cleanliness and Safety of Your Rental Property

As a property owner, you know how challenging it is to keep your building clean. But now more than ever, you know how crucial it is to keep your property looking clean and sanitized not only for appearances but for the safety of your tenants and guests. 

It’s your responsibility to keep the shared areas of your building spotless. Those areas include your hallways, lobby, staircases, and elevators, among others. 

Your trusted commercial cleaning company shares how you can achieve that:

Have a Daily Cleaning Routine

Proper cleaning of your shared areas will help you achieve a clean and safe living environment for both you and your tenants. The first step in keeping your property clean is to have a daily cleaning routine.

It should include the following:

  • Make sure that all common areas are free from any garbage.
  • Clean the lobby, as well as halls, elevators, and stairwells, and make sure that carpeted areas are vacuumed.
  • Sweep and mop all corridors and stairwells.
  • Wash all glass surfaces.

Take It a Notch Higher in Your Weekly Cleanings

While maintaining a daily cleaning schedule is essential, it’s also important that you engage a commercial cleaning company to come in weekly to do a more thorough job on your property.

Hire a cleaning company that will not only make sure that your property is cleaned with precision, but is also warm, friendly, and professional. It’s not just about the product, it’s about the experience!

Here are the things that you can expect from your weekly cleaning:

  • Maintain a dust-free environment.
  • Clean all windows and mirrors.
  • Dust all furniture.
  • Maintain toilet bowls, sinks, and mirrors in shared toilets.
  • Wipe all baseboards, floors, and glass surfaces.
  • Sweep and mop all hallways and stairwells.
  • Vacuum all carpets.
  • Clean all entrance doors.
  • Sweep and mop all corridors and stairwells.
  • Remove trash from common areas.

Do Deep Cleaning Every Month

We know how it is as property owners. You can have your common areas cleaned every week, but by the time you get to the monthly cleaning, you might just skip it altogether.

So, if you really want to do a thorough job, then engage a commercial cleaning company that will do a deep cleaning every month. You can save on your cleaning expenses by setting a monthly budget and allocating the same amount of money for each month.

Deep cleaning includes:

  • Deep cleaning of all carpets, including heavy traffic areas.
  • Deep cleaning of all hard floor surfaces, including baseboards and walls.
  • Wash all glass surfaces, including windows and mirrors.
  • Deep cleaning of all toilets.
  • Deep cleaning of all kitchen areas.
  • Deep cleaning of all entrance and exit doors.
  • Deep cleaning of all electrical fixtures, air vents, and toilets.
  • Deep cleaning of all hallways and stairwells.


Yes, thinking about all the cleaning you need to do to maintain your property can be overwhelming. However, you have a responsibility to keep your property safe and clean for your tenants. And that means that you need to engage a commercial cleaning company to clean your common areas. If you have a busy schedule, it will be helpful to have a cleaning company come in every week to do a thorough cleaning.
