Facility Maintenance and Cleaning Checklist

Posted by ServiceMaster | August 14th, 2022 | Categories : Cleaning Tips

Maintaining your building according to a facility inspection checklist is the best way to make sure everything stays up to code. You have a difficult job managing upkeep and quality of a building, but if you do it correctly, you’ll avoid damage to the building.

Over time things in a workplace are bound to move around, suffer damage, or get misplaced. As a facility manager, you should be doing routine maintenance inspections to help you spot current and potential problems before they become serious. Our facility cleaning experts shared our professional facility cleaning checklist below to help you get started. If you’re in need of commercial cleaning services, ServiceMaster Twin Cities can help!
