Why Having A Strata Cleaner Is Important
Strata managers have a tough job. They look after apartment buildings on behalf of the property owners and manage everything from repairs, maintenance, communications, enforcing strata rules with tenants and preparing and managing budgets for facilities, maintenance and upgrades. One of their many responsibilities is also to manage the cleaning of common and shared areas of an apartment building.
So, where should strata cleaning come on a very busy list? Surely it’s easy to wipe down a handrail, dust a coffee table and a mop of a lobby? Not so! There is much more to strata cleaning.
What does Strata Cleaning Cover?
Strata cleaning commonly includes quite a lot of services and the difference between strata cleaning companies is highlighted, in particular, with the maintenance and individual services offered. After all, every building is different, so every strata service-cleaning contract should be too. Common scope of works are:-
- Mopping all hard surfaces
- Using correct chemicals and cleaning products to protect stone, marble, wooden and heritage floors.
- Buffing, strip and seal of various floor coverings
- Picking up all litter and debris scattered through common areas
- Cleaning and polishing letterboxes
- Cleaning and disinfecting all steps and walkways
- Cleaning and oil management of all car park areas
- Changing any light bulbs and cleaning all light fittings
- Checking that emergency lights are working and clean
- Taking out garbage bins, washing out bins
- Cleaning of external and common area windows
- Carpet vacuuming and steam cleaning
- Gardening and pruning
Why Is The Right Strata Cleaner Important?
The list of standard strata cleaning is not a comprehensive one, and there are many different cleaning and maintenance requirements depending on the building. It could be a new build, which has expensive finishes and floor coverings, which need special care. It could also be an old heritage building where extra rules and regulations are in place, and certain chemicals cannot be used; for example, on heritage parquet flooring, or stained glass windows.
Strata managers are always incredibly busy, so it pays to have professional cleaners who will not only clean the common areas but will replace light bulbs and do all the extras such as take out the bins and ensure that strata areas are sparkling clean and well lit.
