How Often Should You Clean Your Ceiling
January 13th 2021
Located in Surrey, BC Magic Mist Ceiling Cleaning is a premium ceiling cleaning company proud to service the Lower Mainland with our residential and commercial cleaning services.
The ceiling is often left behind when it comes to cleaning services, but what many don’t realize is the ceiling accounts for roughly 25 percent of a cleanable area. Leaving that much space untouched or uncleaned can lead to dust mites and bacteria, which can cause a range of illnesses. As such, not only does having your ceilings cleaned to remove dust and bacteria, but it will also benefit your health.
But how often does your ceiling need to be cleaned? First and foremost, it depends on your environment and whether it’s for residential or commercial purposes.
For residents, there are several key factors to consider when determining how often your ceiling should be cleaned, such as: if anyone in your home smokes, has asthma or allergies if where you live is densely populated, or is situated in a humid environment.
On average, residential ceilings should be cleaned every 5-to-7 years but considering those factors — and grease from cooking — this bumps that time frame up to every 1-to-5 year.
If you notice that there are some recurring stains, water, or mould, that is a sign of a bigger problem that should be addressed.
Commercial ceilings are a little different when it comes to how often they should be cleaned but is also dependent on environmental factors. We suggest they should be cleaned more frequently than residential ceilings — anywhere between 6 and 36 months — particularly if the ceiling is a commercial kitchen with a buildup of grease and other bacteria.
Regardless if you need ceiling cleaning for residential or commercial purposes, there are many reasons why it’s important to get them cleaned by a professional cleaning company, such as Magic Mist Ceiling, regularly.
A good ceiling cleaning will remove the tobacco, cooking oil, and dust in the air, which will vastly improve the air quality in your home or workplace. Over time, dust also accumulates on ceilings and, if not cleaned, can lead to eye irritation, allergies, ear-eye-nose-throat infections, asthma attacks, fatigue, and even depression.
Lastly, a buildup of bacteria can lead to illnesses and a loss of work productivity, so not only does a clean ceiling keep your employees healthy and safe, but it also boosts workplace morale and productivity.
At the end of the day, everyone wants their ceilings to look nice and contribute to a healthy home and office environment without the cost of having to replace them. Here at Magic Mist Ceiling, our professional cleaning services will dramatically improve the appearance of your ceilings at a fraction of the cost to replace them.
