Commercial Ceiling Cleaning Frequently Asked QuestionsThe cleaning experts at Compass Cleaning Solutions have nearly two decades of experience helping business owners restore their ceilings. We understand that damage to your ceilings and walls can negatively impact your business. Here is a list of frequently asked commercial ceiling cleaning questions, along with answers to each question.
How Do I Know If My Ceiling Tiles Need to Be Cleaned?A quick inspection of your ceiling can reveal a lot. For example, are there water stains? Is the tile yellowish compared to a newer tile? Is there a possibility that the odors from cooking or other activities have become trapped in the porous tile? Does the tile feel sticky or a bit oily? If you answered yes to more than one of these questions, then having a commercial cleaning company conduct an inspection of your ceiling tile is a good idea.
How Often Should Your Ceiling Tile Receive a Cleaning?The first question we typically ask our customers is, when was the last time your tiles were cleaned? Most of the time, when asked that question, the answer is never. Our rule of thumb is if your tiles have not been cleaned in at least six months, then they probably need it.
However, a question we might ask first is, what type of space do you have? This is because general office space is less likely to need ceiling tiles cleaned than a restaurant or private club. If an area is exposed to smoke and grease from ovens or flat tops or cigar and cigarette smoke from club-goers, then your facility should be cleaned at minimum once every three months. On the other hand, an office may have water stains from leaking roofs or HVAC equipment. In these situations, cleaning can be done on an as-needed basis.
Ultimately, how often your ceilings are cleaned will depend on the acceptable aesthetic look, safety requirements and the amount of smoke and grease, as well as dust and other contaminants, found in your building.
The following standards are a good place to start.
- Restaurants, Bakeries – Every 90 days
- General Office Space – Once every 12-18 months
- Water Damage – Immediately or as soon as possible
What Are the Benefits of Having My Ceiling Tiles Cleaned?As we mentioned earlier, smoke and grease can discolor tiles and make them look dirty. This can reduce the effective light in an area. By cleaning the tiles, the ambient light level increases, making for a more pleasant work environment. Well-lit work environments have proven to add significantly to increased productivity.
However, there are other issues that must be addressed as well. For example, restaurants and bakeries, or any area where food is prepared, have to consider health issues as well. Health departments have certain minimum standards of cleanliness and will close any kitchen that falls below those standards. Ceiling tiles and vinyl walls are particular areas of concern because the oils, greases and organic matter from the cooking process are great breeding grounds for bacteria. Restaurant owners must consider the costs of fines and closure if their walls and ceilings do not pass inspection.
While keeping these surfaces clean and free of bacteria will score points with the health department, there are other economic benefits of having your tiles cleaned. Not only is cleaning the tiles and walls less expensive than replacing them, but there is also lost economic activity associated with shutting down your operation while tiles are replaced. This could negatively impact the financials of your business.
What If I Just Paint My Ceiling Tiles?Generally, painting ceiling tiles is not a good idea. When tiles are manufactured, they are “painted” or “colored” with a fire retardant material to reduce fire hazards. When you paint over the tiles, you have effectively removed the retardant capabilities, creating a potential fire hazard. Many manufacturers offer multiple colors in their tiles or look for paint that will meet fire code standards.
Additionally, painting your ceiling without cleaning them first will not produce a great result, since the paint will not adhere to the tile. If painting your tile is the only option, then you should have your tiles cleaned first and then painted. You will not lose your money and will achieve a better result. However, keep in mind that you still need to find a non-flammable fire retardant coating to protect the interior of the building from a potential fire hazard.
Can You Clean Water Stains From HVAC or Roof Leaks?Water stains are especially annoying. They not only look ugly, but they imply a poor level of maintenance and care for your building. This can lead to lost customers and lost revenue, along with an unwanted reputation. Ask yourself, what is the cost of losing one customer due to a water stain on your ceiling worth to you? Keep in mind, those same customers will likely tell others as well, costing you even more money. Quickly cleaning ceiling stains can save you significant revenue loss.
Cleaning most water stains is quick and cost-effective. However, replacing an entire ceiling tile because of one six-inch stain is not the best option and can be costly. You should handle stains like this separately or in conjunction with the normal cleaning service. In either case, removing the stain quickly is important to your bottom line.
Is My Kitchen Equipment or Computer Equipment at Risk During the Cleaning?This is a big concern in areas where food prep is an ongoing process. Our first step is to move as much equipment as possible and then cover the equipment with plastic to prevent any product from landing on surfaces where food could come into contact with the equipment surface. Not only is care taken to cover all fixtures and equipment before service, but the same care is taken when removing the plastic covering to ensure nothing is contaminated at the end of the process.
On a side note, the products used during the cleaning will not cause damage to any of your equipment surfaces. You can rest assured knowing your equipment and your staff are completely safe.
