5 Second Rule: Fact or Fiction?

Thu, 09/28/2017 - 15:41 -- Loretta Moerbe

Picture this: you picked up lunch from your favorite spot. You spent a little more than you normally would because it’s so worth it. You go to take that first bite and the unthinkable happens—you drop the entire plate on the ground! Your mother’s words quickly cross you mind and you shout, “Five-second rule!” You pick it up and inspect for anything stuck to your food. Luckily, you have a great cleaning service like Sonlight Cleaning Service and the carpet was vacuumed thoroughly the night before. So, you decide it’s safe and you eat it anyway, but… do you know what you’re eating?

            Every day, we walk into a number of places that directly transfer a number of bacteria onto our shoes. Think about the places you have been even just this morning. Perhaps you went to the gas station, the coffee shop, the bathroom, and the parking garage. If we pulled out our microscope and saw what’s on the bottom of your shoes before noon, I bet you’d think twice about eating that food off the floor. Daily vacuuming just isn’t enough in the battle against bacteria. At Sonlight Cleaning Service, we want to help keep you healthy, and that’s why we offer a wide variety of deep cleaning services to help you keep ahead of the bacteria that can make you sick.

            So what’s in our carpet anyway? According to The Five-Second Rule and Other Myths about Germs: What Everyone Should Know About Bacteria, Viruses, and Mildew, bacteria can live longer than 4 weeks on carpet! And, have you heard of “microbial adhesion”? This means that germs like Salmonella Typhimurium, Campylobacter, and Salmonella Enteritis are IMMEDIATELY transferred to food. In case you’re not familiar with these bacteria, these are the ones that cause extreme diarrhea and vomiting that can lead to hospitalization—thus declaring our five-second rule is fiction! Sonlight Cleaning Service offers several deep cleaning options for your carpets to help you keep germs at bay.

            Not only are our carpets laced with bacteria, you can also find any number of allergens deep inside the carpet fibers that can make you sick. Vacuuming will help keep the top layer clean and fresh, but what do we need to do about the bottom layer where all the dust and allergens get trapped? Sonlight Cleaning Service recommends you have your carpets cleaned by hot water extraction yearly, or biannually for high traffic areas, to effectively combat allergens, bacteria, and keep your carpet looking it’s best.

            Our process of Hot Water Extraction deep cleans your carpets with hot water mixed with disinfectant, leaving you with not only cleaner carpets, but also cleaner air and a much healthier environment for customers and staff. While, the Five-Second Rule isn’t all that reliable, Sonlight Cleaning Service strives to provide the best of customer service and is the premiere cleaning service for the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Call us today, and let us help you achieve a cleaner and safer environment for your business!

Limiting Your Limitations

Thu, 09/21/2017 - 12:53 -- Loretta Moerbe

We all have our limitations. Some may have limitations that exceed the limitations of others and sometimes limitations can be costly. However, in business, we shouldn’t have to cover the cost for another person’s limitations. Being aware of our own business-related limitations can help us take steps toward overcoming, expanding, or making up for these shortcomings. A major part of customer service is learning how to properly handle our shortcomings in a way that will instill confidence in our business or product as a whole. Sonlight Cleaning Service knows that a poorly run facility can be one of the biggest limitations in both customer and employee satisfaction. We are dedicated to helping you succeed by taking care of your facility and helping you make a great first impression every time someone walks in.

            Everyone is different. We all have different limitations, expectations, needs, etc., and Sonlight Cleaning Service is prepared to meet the unique needs and preferences of your facility by creating a tailor-fit cleaning program just for you! We offer cleaning services that refresh your facility daily so you can come into your work environment feeling fresh and ready to work without the limitations of yesterday’s mess waiting for you. Not only does a thorough daily clean help you enter your work environment feeling renewed and ready to go, but it can also help you increase the longevity of your facility by keeping away grime and dirt that can be corrosive to your building materials.  Sonlight Cleaning Service is there to help you see to it that you not only have a clean facility, but that you are also making a wise long-term investment in the maintaining of your facility to help you avoid costly repairs down the road.

            Usually businesses want someone to come and clean overnight once everyone has left, but sometimes that just isn’t enough! High traffic areas usually require attention several times a day, and Sonlight Cleaning Service understands that you need that great first impression to last beyond your morning coffee. We offer a Day Porter Service that will provide you with a continuous cleaning regime of your high traffic areas so you can maintain an immaculate appearance all day long. Check us out online at www.sonlightcleaning.com to see your limitless options included in our Day Porter Service.

            Finally, when it comes to limitations, we know that life is not about what limitations you have, it’s what you do with those limitations that really counts. We can turn our shortcomings into strengths by simply becoming aware of what is holding us back and taking steps toward a better tomorrow! At Sonlight Cleaning Service, we are dedicated to making sure the cleanliness of your facility is not a limitation to the services you provide your customers. We are excited to see our clients succeed and we look forward to being a part of your team!

Emergencies Happen: Are You Prepared?

Thu, 09/14/2017 - 19:36 -- Loretta Moerbe
     I.C.E. is an acronym that stands for “In Case of Emergency,” or ICE. It’s usually the phone number that is called to reach your most relied upon individual that is fully capable to take care of you in the event of an emergency. They’re who you call first in your time of need and usually know just what to do when you are in a crisis. Having emergency contacts and an emergency preparedness plan in place is a crucial part of business ownership. Employees need to be fully trained and aware how to handle every anticipated emergency in a calm and orderly fashion to promote not only safety but also to instill a confidence in your business. Customers notice how you respond in an emergency, and it’s best to always be prepared.
