Cleaning Epoxy Floors

Epoxy floors are generally easy to care for. However here are some guideline to keep them in tip-top condition. Read on to learn more.

General Maintenance

Dust mop once a week. The best way to maintain your epoxy floor is to run a soft dust mop over it once a week. This removes dirt and dust gently, which prevents scratches and protects your floor. For floors with an anti-slip aggregate coating–such as aluminum oxide–a soft bristle push broom may be more effective than a standard dust mop.

Vacuum any joints once a month. If you have visible construction joints or saw cuts, you should use a vacuum to clean these out. For best results, use your vacuum attachment hose with a crevice tool. Vacuum these joints about once per month. If you do not have a vacuum, you can try to clean any joints/cuts with a stiff bristle broom.

Clean spills immediately with a soft cloth. Oil, chemicals, or even just water left to sit for too long can damage your epoxy floors. Clean any spills as soon as you see them using a soft towel or cloth. You can use a gentle cleanser–such as Windex–if a spill is sticky or leaves a film.

Deep Cleaning

Perform a deep cleaning every three months. In addition to general cleaning, you can keep your epoxy floors in good shape by doing a deep cleaning about once every few months. In order to accomplish this, you may need to move some vehicles, tools, or other items out of your way.

Choose a cleaning solution. You have two good options to choose from: the first is a non-toxic, biodegradable cleanser (like Simple Green), and the second is ammonia. When prepared with the right amount of water, both of these cleansers are safe and effective for epoxy floors.

  • Mix 12 cup (120 ml) of Simple Green with 1 gallon (3.8 L) of hot water. If you make an over-concentrated solution, it can leave a film on your floor.
  • Mix 12 cup (120 ml) of ammonia with 1 gallon (3.8 L) of hot water.

Mop the floor with a hard foam mop. Create a bucket of cleaning solution, as well as a bucket of plain hot water. Submerge your hard foam mop into your cleaning solution, ring it out, and then move it over your floor. Rinse the floor. Fill a bucket with clean warm water. Using your hard foam mop, go back over the floor with water in order to rinse off any detergent. When you’re finished, dry the floor with a soft towel.

Stain Removal

Remove tire marks with a concrete degreaser. The best way to remove tire marks from epoxy floors is to saturate the area with a concrete degreasing product and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Then use a stiff bristle nylon brush to vigorously scrub tire marks away. If they are persistent, you may need to apply the degreaser a second time. Once the tire marks have been removed, rinse the area with a bit of water and dry with a towel.

Work on tire marks right away when they’re made. They will be more difficult to remove the longer they build up.

Cautions

  • Do not use cleansers with vinegar or citrus oil in them. These abrasive substances can damage epoxy floors.

  • Avoid using soap and soapy cleansers. These can leave streaks or make your epoxy floor slippery.

  • Park a vehicle so each tire is on a piece of cardboard or carpet if it sits on epoxy floors for a prolonged period of time.

Cleaning Iron Railings
Written by Desert Oasis Cleaners

Cleaning Different Kinds Of Railings

Railings can be very beautiful regardless of the material they are made from but they need to be kept clean and be safe from a structural standpoint. Read on to learn how you can clean railings made from different materials.

Powder Coated Railings

Many-a-times railings are powder-coated to ensure that the underlying materials are safeguarded, making these railings tough, corrosion-free and highly durable. Use soapy water and sponge to clean your powder-coated railings. Ensure that the soap/detergent that you use does not contain chemicals that can damage the coating. If the application is mild and does not hurt your skin when you touch it, it is most likely usable. Test the application in an inconspicuous area of your railing and observe before spreading completely.

Aluminum Railings

Aluminum railings require virtually no upkeep. Use soapy water and a soft cloth to rinse away any dust stains on your railings. Hosing down the railings with a power-hose may be a good alternative. Always dab away the extra moisture with a soft cloth and leave it to air-dry. Railings around coastal areas may be exposed to an accumulation of abrasive salts. Similarly, railings installed on a high-rise balcony may be subject to bird droppings and dust. In such cases using an appropriate solvent or cleanser may do the trick. You can lacquer your aluminum railings using a coat of car wax or floor wax. This will make maintaining your railings an easier chore, especially when they are constantly exposed to the elements.

Stainless Steel Railings

Stainless steel are available in two kinds,  polished and satin. Although stainless steel is largely corrosion-proof, some unsightly marks and stains may retard the appearance. Use distilled water to clean away the white marks on steel railings. And pat down with a soft cloth or newspaper. You may also use polishing cleansers to remove tougher marks and stains. Oil and grease stains may require the use of solvents, such as acetone or alcohol wipes. It is a good idea to always use gloves and protect your hands while applying the polish or solvents to your railings.

Brass Railings

There are both solid brass railings and the brass-plated railings. These two require significantly different approaches to maintenance. All brass tends to oxidize or tarnish fairly quickly. Use warm soapy water and sponge to clean and maintain your brass railings. If the stains are tough, use a stronger variety of soap, like dishwashing soap. Using conventional polish, like Brasso, may work for solid brass. But avoid using polish on plated-brass at all costs. The brass polish will cut through the brass and leave the underlying material (usually steel) exposed.

Cleaning Wrought Iron Doors

These days we are all more aware than ever before about the importance of keeping everything as clean as possible. So, read on to learn more about how to keep your wrought iron door clean and in tip-top condition.

  • Start by using a mild cleanser and a non-abrasive, lint-free cloth. For a DIY cleaner, mix together liquid castile soap or a vegetable-based soap with a touch of water. Soak the cloth in the soap mixtures and gently wipe down your doors. The rust on your doors should start to come off with ease. 
  • Once you cleaned your door with your soap mixture, make sure you rinse it off thoroughly with a hose. Any remaining soap can leave unwanted residue on your custom wrought iron doors. 
  • When you are wiping down your iron doors, make sure that you don’t leave any excess water to dry, for this will cause more rust to form. Chemicals and hard minerals that are found in tap water can stain and damage your doors. 
  • Once your doors have been properly cleaned, use a cloth or sponge to completely dry off your doors. By drying off any remaining water, you are ensuring that your custom wrought iron doors will remain stain and damage free. 
  • Depending on the area you live in, you may have to take a few extra precautions to ensure that your iron doors maintain their beauty year-round. For example, if you live near the coast, you should properly oil the hinges of your iron door on a monthly basis. Salt water air can corrode doors if they aren’t taken care of and maintained on a regular basis. 

To keep your custom wrought iron doors, beautiful, durable, and secure, it’s so important to come up with a proper maintenance plan.

How To Clean Walls With Flat Paint
Written by Desert Oasis Cleaners

How To Clean Walls With Flat Paint

The majority of rooms are painted with latex or alkyd paint that are both washable and durable. Available in a wide choice of finishes, they are easy to not only apply but also to maintain. Flat painted walls need special care when being washed to ensure the paint is not damaged during the cleaning process. Read on to learn more.

Step By Step

Dirt and stains can safely be removed from walls by utilizing a gentle soap detergent. Here is how to do it:

  • First, utilize a vacuum cleaner or a feather duster and remove the dust particles from the wall.
  • Get two buckets and fill them with warm water. Take one bucket and add a few drops of dish soap and keep the other bucket just full of warm water. Get a sponge and put one of them in each bucket.
  • Remove the sponge from the bucket of plain water and wring it out into the plain water bucket to remove the excess water.
  • Use the sponge to run the wall down in a motion that is circular, hence avoiding the removal of any of the flat paint surface. If the plain water does not remove the grime and stains, it is time to use the soapy bucket of water.
  • Remove the sponge from the bucket of soapy water and wring it out into the soapy water bucket to remove the excess water.
  • Using the soapy sponge rub the wall, starting at the bottom and working your way upwards. This trick will prevent the dirty soapy water from running towards the floor. Again, utilize a circular motion as you do this.
  • Finally, rinse the wall with plain water and then wipe away any excess moisture with a towel or soft cloth.

Cleaning Plaster Walls
Written by Desert Oasis Cleaners

Cleaning Plaster Walls

Plaster walls particularly when unpainted, absorb dirt, dust and can appear dull and lifeless very quickly. Regular dusting helps but inevitably a deep clean will be needed to make sure the plaster retains its original color. Common household bleach is very effective as a cleaning agent. Read on to learn more.

  • Clean the walls by dusting ensuring the dust and dirt is fully removed. You can utilize a vacuum cleaner if the wall has a rough surface.
  • Keep furniture away from the walls and use a drop cloth so furniture and carpeting are covered and protected from the bleach.
  • Put two gallons of cool water in a bucket and mix 1.5 cups of bleach with cool water.
  • Use rubber gloves to protect your skin and take a large sponge and soak it in the solution you have made. Wring out the sponge so it is only very slightly damp.
  • Use the sponge to wipe down the wall applying more bleach solution as needed. Best to start at the bottom of the wall and work your way upwards.
  • Wash small areas at a time and dry each area with a towel that is clean. If you dry during the process of washing, it will prevent water from cascading down the wall, reducing streaks.
  • Lastly, fill the bucket with clean water and repeat the cleaning and drying process

Top Tip

Test the bleach solution you have made on an area of the wall that is usually hidden to ensure damage is not caused!

Caution

  • Keep the area ventilated by opening a window to minimize fumes from the bleach.
  • Do not be tempted to mix the bleach with additional cleaners, especially those that have ammonia as an ingredient. Bleach and ammonia create a toxic gas.

Cleaning Workplace Bathrooms
Written by Desert Oasis Cleaners

Cleaning Workplace Bathrooms

It is very important to keep workplace bathrooms hygienic and presentable. Read on to learn more.

Preparation

Assemble your cleaning supplies and make sure rugs and mops are properly labeled so they are not used in any other area. Ensure the restroom is not occupied and post signs that rest rooms are closed. You can use a janitorial cart to block the doorway.

Daily Maintenance

  • Visually perform an inspection of the restroom. Pick up any debris on the floor, around the toilet, urinal and sink areas.
  • Check recycling bins and garbage cans. If they are full or nearly full, remove the trash can liner and replace with a new one.
  • Check toilet paper, soap, and paper towel dispensers to make sure they are properly stocked.

Weekly Procedures

  • Scrub and clean all interior surfaces of urinals and toilets with a toilet bowl cleaner. Wipe down all exterior surfaces, including toilet seats, with a disinfectant.
  • Wipe down and disinfect all surfaces, including door handles, partitions, dispensers, light switches and countertops.
  • Clean all mirrors with a glass cleaner to remove any marks and fingerprints.
  • Use an acidic or germicidal surface cleanser to wipe down the handles, sinks and faucets.
  • Dust mop, sweep and wet mop the floors, taking care to keep the mops, mop buckets, and solutions to be used only in the bathroom. Avoid cross-contamination with other areas of the facility at all costs.

Monthly Procedures

  • Dust all out of the way areas, including the tops of doors, partitions, shelves, dispensers, air vents and hand dryers.
  • Replace all metered air fresheners and aerosol deodorizers.
  • Replace the urinal blocks as necessary, if there are urinal cleaning blocks in place, replace these.  Not only will they deodorize the restroom, as it continuously cleans the urinal walls, but it also helps to unclog pipes and make sure they can adequately drain at all times.
  • Check to make sure all drains are properly draining.

Cleaning Up

  • Remove all trash bags and place in the dumpster. Do not remove the caution/restroom closed signs until all work is finished and all surfaces, including the floors are completely dry. Rinse out and clean the mop buckets, mops, and rags that were used.

Restaurant Cleaning Cost
Written by Desert Oasis Cleaners

How Much Does Restaurant Cleaning Cost?

The average cost of restaurant cleaning is $85 per hour with average restaurant cleaning services rates and prices ranging from $20 to $150 per hour for the US in 2020.

The reason for the wide variation in costs is because the price depends on many different factors. For example, light cleaning (dusting, vacuuming and cleaning bathrooms) averages $35 per hour with costs ranging from $20 to $40 per hour. Conversely, commercial kitchen cleaning is considerably more expensive because of the level of difficulty. You can look to spend an average of $100 per hour on commercial kitchen cleaning with costs ranging from $50 to $150 per hour. The good news is a heavy-duty kitchen cleaning is only needed a few times per year. Professional carpet cleaning costs average $0.15 per square foot with costs ranging from $0.05 to $0.25 per square foot.

When you hire a professional cleaning service, you determine the frequency of the cleaning. You can choose from daily, weekly or even monthly visits. You can be sure the professional and experienced staff at Desert Oasis Cleaners will do all of the cleanings to the highest standards and can be a supplement to the routine cleaning chores handled by your staff.

  • Bathrooms- Scrubbing and sanitizing all surfaces, including countertops and toilets; mopping and sweeping floors; removing trash; and refilling paper products and soaps.

Choosing A Restaurant Cleaning Service

You want to choose the best restaurant cleaning service, so here are some important tithings to consider when you decide who to opt for:

  • Be sure to meet the people from the cleaning company before you hire them. Make sure they seem professional. Ask lots of specific questions. How long have they worked for the company? What kind of training did they have? Will they be arriving at the same time every week?
  • Limit your search to companies that specialize in restaurant cleaning. If they are only experienced with necessary office cleaning won’t understand the unique needs of a restaurant or proper sanitation procedures.
  • Do some background research. Ask for references and check them – have past customers been pleased with the service? Check the company’s track record with consumer protection organizations like the Better Business Bureau as well as online reviews.
  • Make sure the cleaning service is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), a nonprofit that sets standards for the restoration, inspection and cleaning services.
  • Ensure you have a checklist of specific cleaning tasks that will be performed. This way you know exactly where your money is going. Be sure to ask things like:  “Is window washing included in the price or does that cost extra?” and “What about washing walls or dusting ceiling fans?”

The Best Way To Clean Bricks
Written by Desert Oasis Cleaners

The Best Way To Clean Bricks

Many businesses have a brick driveway or entrance to their doorway and having it look nice makes a great first impression with customers. Yet, some people continue to be intimidated by what is an easy maintenance job. Read on to learn more.

What You Will Need

  • Pressure Washers
  • Garden Hoses
  • Scrub Brushes

Preparation

Firstly look for any cracks both in the bricks and the mortar as these will have to be repaired before you commence washing. Protect and cover any electrical outlets, light fixtures and jacks with a material that is waterproof so water will not be forced to enter them during the cleaning process. Make sure nearby flower beds, bushes and shrubs are also covered and ensure windows are tightly sealed.

Detergent Application

Use the pressure washer with a low-pressure nozzle and spray the detergent from one end of the pathway to the other. Allow the detergent to sit for a few minutes so it can get to work on breaking up surface stains and other assorted dirt. The instructions with the packaging will indicate how long this process will take.

Water Pressure

Next use the high pressure nozzle on the power cleaner to clean the brickwork in the same manner you applied the detergent. Use horizontal strokes over an area roughly three to four feet at any given time. Moderate pressure is probably ideal and again look at and follow the instructions from the manufacturer regarding the best distance for the nozzle to be from the surface you are cleaning. You can then increase the pressure as needed. Utilize a garden house to make sure nearby services are completely rinsed, such as the walkway, driveway, patio ensuring they are free of residue from the detergent.

Problem Areas

After a couple of days once the brickwork has dried, perform an inspection. You can then spot-treat any stains that may have been missed. Especially look for masonry bloom, algae or stubborn mildew. A wire brush may come in handy for persistent stains and other stained areas can be treated with clean water and a cleaner wit ha prayer for application. For mold and mildew stains mix equal parts of water and chlorine bleach. For rust and mortar stains, use an acid-based detergent for masonry and be sure to follow the instructions from the manufacturer. Then rinse everything very thoroughly and allow it to dry.
