Commercial Ceiling Cleaning Frequently Asked QuestionsThe ceiling cleaning experts at Compass Cleaning Solutions have nearly two decades of experience assisting business owners renew and restore their ceilings. We understand that damage to your ceilings and walls will negatively impact your business reputation. 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 will reveal a lot. For example, are there water stains? Is the ceiling tile yellowish compared to a newer tile? Have the odors from cooking or other activities become trapped in the porous ceiling tiles? 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 Be Cleaned?The first question we ask our customers is, when was the last time your ceiling tiles were professionally cleaned? Generally, when asked that question, the answer is "never" or "I can't remember". A quick rule of thumb is if your tiles have not been cleaned in the last six months, then they probably need a good cleaning.
However, another question we might ask 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 cooking ovens or flat tops or cigar and cigarette smoke from club-goers, then your facility should be cleaned at minimum once every three months. An office may simply have water stains from leaking roofs or HVAC equipment malfunctions. In this instance, cleaning may be a done on an as-needed basis.
How often your ceilings need professionally cleaned will depend on the acceptable appearance, safety requirements and the amount of smoke or grease, as well as dust and other contaminants, found in your environment.
The following standards are a good place to start.
- Restaurants & Bakeries – Clean every 90 days
- General Office Space – Once every 12-18 months may be sufficient
- Water Damage – Immediately or as soon as the leak has been repaired
What Are the Benefits of Having Ceiling Tiles Cleaned?As mentioned earlier, smoke and grease will discolor tiles and make them appear dirty. This will reduce the effective amount light in the work area. By cleaning the ceiling tiles, the ambient light level increases, making for a brighter and more pleasant work environment. Well-lit work environments have been proven to increase productivity.
There are other issues that should be addressed as well. Restaurants, delis, and bakeries, or any area where food is prepared, must consider health issues as well. Health departments have minimum standards of cleanliness and will close any kitchen that doesn't meet those standards. Your ceiling tiles and vinyl walls are especially concerning because 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. Kitchen closed for the week? What is that going to do to your bottom line?
While keeping these surfaces clean and free of bacteria are necessary and will score points with the health department inspector, there are other monetary benefits of cleaning your celling tiles. Cleaning the tiles and walls is far less expensive than replacing them, but there is also the loss of revenue associated with shutting down your business operations while tiles are replaced. This could negatively impact the financials for your business.
Can I Just Paint My Ceiling Tiles?In most instances, painting ceiling tiles is not a great idea. When tiles are manufactured, they are “painted” or “colored” with fire retardant materials to reduce fire hazards. By painting over the tiles, you have effectively blocked or removed the fire retardant capabilities, creating a potential fire hazard going forward. Many manufacturers offer multiple colors in their tiles or look for a paint that will meet fire code standards.
Additionally, painting your ceiling tiles without cleaning them first won't work, since the paint will not adhere well to a dirty tile. If painting your tile is your only option, then clean the tiles first and then paint them. It will cost less to do the job right once, then to have to go back and replace the tiles when the paint doesn't adhere. Keep in mind that you still need to find a non-flammable fire retardant coating to protect the building interior from a potential fire hazard.
Can Water Stains From HVAC or Roof Leaks Be Cleaned?Water stains are especially troublesome. They not only look terrible, but they imply a poor level of maintenance and care for your whole building and operation. This can lead to lost customers, lost revenue, along with an unwanted reputation for the business. Ask yourself, what is the cost of losing just one customer for their lifetime, due to a water stain on your ceiling that could have been taken care of? Sadly, those same customers will likely tell others, costing you even more money. Cleaning ceiling stains quickly is a great investment and can save you a significant loss in revenue.
Cleaning most water stains is quick, simple and cost-effective. Replacing an entire ceiling tile because of one six-inch stain is not the best option and can be expensive. You should handle water stains separately or in conjunction with the normal cleaning service for the business. In either case, removing the stain quickly is important to your bottom line.
Is Kitchen or Computer Equipment at Risk During the Cleaning?Cleaning is always a concern in areas where food prep is an ongoing process. The first step is to move as much of the equipment as possible out of the area, and then cover the remaining equipment with plastic to prevent any cleaning product or debris from landing on food prep surfaces. Not only is care taken to cover all fixtures and equipment before the cleaning service, but the same care is taken when removing the plastic to ensure nothing is contaminated at the completion of the process.
The products we use during the cleaning process will not damage any of your equipment surfaces. Rest assured knowing your equipment, and your staff, are completely safe.
