Can you envision the cleaning process in your office or facility? Do you see the team vacuuming, wiping glass doors, emptying the trash, and dusting?

We’ve rounded up a list of the places people often forget to clean:


You’d think dirt, debris, and salt would only accumulate on the main path of the stairs. Surprisingly, buildup can happen just as quickly in the corners and edges, too; it’s easy for our shoes to kick particles into those areas.
