Do you own or manage property in Denver? Managing and maintaining a property can be more complicated than first appearances may reveal. Consider how you care for a simple property, your home:
- Floors, including carpet, tile and usually another type of material
- Yard Care
- General Repairs
- Preventative Maintenance
- Systems such as HVAC, plumbing, and electrical
And when you scale all this up, as in any one of Denver’s many commercial properties, you add square footage, variety of space use and equipment considerations. Clean building maintenance then becomes a matter of scheduled and systemized processes to manage and maintain the expected standards for safety and sanitation.
Clean Building Maintenance Checklist for Commercial Properties
This checklist is not customized to your specific property in Denver, but is designed to help you understand what to consider in building one. Of course, a quality janitorial and maintenance provider will create, manage and maintain high standards with systematic and scheduled services to meet your property goals, and is a great option.
Outsourced clean building maintenance providers can be a cost effective alternative to janitorial and/or maintenance personnel, or even a supplement for deep or specialty cleans at specific intervals. Consider what makes the most sense for you as you review the checklist. Add or remove any areas of focus due to the nature of the business and the facility needs. As you look at each item, answer these questions:
Who is responsible for the care of each item?
How often do the items need to be checked and/or serviced?
What is the process for repair, procurement of supplies and/or vendors?

Of course this isn’t a fully exhaustive list for clean building maintenance, as it really needs to be customized for your specific property. Overall, think about this: whether in your property or another property you have visited, how did you feel about seeing areas of neglect such as ceiling damage, trip hazards, safety concerns, and sanitation issues? While nothing is perfect one hundred percent of the time, it is important to discover habitually neglected cleaning and maintenance concerns and fix them.
Clean building maintenance solutions reflect on and create the processes needed to be put into place to bridge the gap in expectations and determine what services, activities or tasks need to be done systematically to prevent extended damage and/or injuries. Also consider what events are projected in order to be proactive, rather than reactive.
