High Dusting – Ceilings, Air Ducts, & Pipes
High dusting is the process of cleaning difficult to reach spots, and removing bacteria, dust and dirt build-up. The reason that this process is called high dusting is because the areas that are being cleaned (air vents, ceilings, pipes, etc.) are usually over 16 feet high.
High dusting is a very important part of cleaning, the reason being that the areas that get cleaning during high dusting (also known as detailed cleaning) are the areas that many people neglect to clean. The best commercial cleaning companies make sure to do detailed cleaning and it’s recommended to only hiring a cleaning company that makes sure to clean the walls, pipes, and other areas where dirt and grime buildup occurs.
While many people who clean their office and their home make sure to clean the carpet, windows, and wax the floors, many people neglect to clean the air vents and ceilings. One might hire a professional cleaning company to clean the floors and carpets for them, but one rarely hires a professional cleaning company to clean the air vents and remove dirt buildup in these places. Just because many cleaning areas might be neglected that doesn’t make the cleaning of those areas less important than cleaning obvious areas, such as the floor.
At Four Star General Cleaning, we want to make sure that you have the most meticulous and clean office possible, which is why we make sure to do high dusting.
There are professional ways to remove dirt buildup in the high areas and it’s important to know how high dusting should work so you know that your cleaning company is cleaning the way professionals are supposed to clean.
The way to remove dust from the ceiling is not by blowing the dust off with a blower. The way to remove dust from the ceiling is with a vacuum cleaner. HEPA vacuum cleaners are the best type of vacuums to use when removing dust from the ceiling. A HEPA filter vacuum is the most effective way to keep fine particles of dust from getting into other hard to reach areas.
After the area is properly vacuumed, some additional janitorial cleaning may need to be done. Sometimes all that’s needed is to clean the ceiling area with wet towels. It’s recommended to use buckets of soap and water to clean the high areas (such as the ceiling) after the vacuuming is done.
It’s best to have a cleaning company that will not just make sure that the visible areas of your office are clean, but all the areas. Just because you might be unaware that certain areas of the building need to be clean, a professional cleaning company will know to clean these areas and if they really care about making your office clean and removing as much dirt and grime as possible, they will make sure to do some high dusting.
