A Comprehensive Cleaning Checklist for Banks

Efficient commercial cleaning depends on an organized approach to different tasks covering different areas throughout the property. This checklist template for cleaning banks pulls everything together with daily, weekly and monthly duties. Use it to develop a property-specific checklist that streamlines and maximizes your bank’s in-house cleaning services.

Daily Bank Cleaning Routines

Daily cleaning routines cover the basics. Janitorial staff vacuums, sweeps and dusts every room in the building and empties all trash receptacles. Individual areas in the bank need extra attention.

• Entryways

Polish glass doors, windows and partitions. Sanitize door handles several times during the day. Check floor mats for potential tripping hazards.

• Lobbies and Offices

Wipe down furniture upholstery and trim. Fluff back and seat cushions while inspecting for spills or tears. Make sure cushions are secured to furniture frames.

• Break Rooms

Wash and put away dishes and cutlery immediately after use. Keep sanitizing wipes available on counters. Don’t allow food debris to accumulate in trash cans.

• Bathrooms

Clean and disinfect toilets, sinks and counters before or after regular hours. Frequently check bathrooms for cleanliness, and replenish soap and paper supplies.

• Storage Areas

Maintain neat storage rooms and closets by returning cleaning essentials to assigned areas and shelves. Be careful about storing chemical cleaning supplies.

Weekly Bank Cleaning Tasks

Focus weekly cleaning on polishing glass surfaces throughout the bank building. Pay special attention to windows, glass doors and glass wall partitions. Include these room-specific cleaning tasks in the weekly schedule.

• Entryways

Flip floor mats, and inspect for signs of wear. Dust floor-to-ceiling window and door frames. Check corners for accumulated debris and ceilings for cobwebs.

• Lobbies and Offices

Vacuum fabric upholstery, brush window drapes, and clean window blinds. Wipe down wood and metal doors making sure all hardware is in good operating condition.

• Teller Stations

Deep-polish surfaces, and inspect for scratches or dings. Refill and straighten up supplies on both sides of all stations. Check station signage for positioning and accuracy.

• Break Rooms

Clean out cupboards and refrigerators. Note expiration dates on packaged food, and discard as necessary. Look inside cabinets and drawers for signs of insects or rodents.

• Bathrooms

Scrub hard-to-reach areas behind toilets and under sinks. Head off plumbing problems by inspecting exposed pipes for leaks and checking adjacent walls for damp spots.

• Storage Areas

Straighten up storage closets. Check cleaning and office supplies. Restock as needed, and update supply inventory tracking.

Monthly Bank Cleaning Jobs 

Monthly bank cleaning jobs ensure overall property safety and a healthy work environment. Test security system equipment and smoke detectors. Clean ceiling and wall air vents building-wide, and replace all HVAC filters. Take care of individual areas with specific monthly cleaning routines.

• Entryways

Power wash exterior entry landings, steps and walkways. Check door locks and hardware for proper operation. Make sure entry door weather stripping is secure. Inspect signage for wear or damage.

• Lobbies and Offices

Dust all overhead fixtures and ceiling fans. Polish wood paneling, steam-clean carpets, and buff hardwood floors. Clean windows sills, door frames and baseboards.

• Teller Stations

Straighten out contents of drawers, adjacent file cabinets and storage areas. Remove items from shelves, dust, and reorganize. Clean areas in tight corners and under counters.

• Break Rooms

Empty and deep-clean cabinets, drawers and refrigerators. Clean all appliances inside and out. Inspect electrical cords and outlets for signs of wear or scorching.

• Bathrooms

Make sure sink and floor drains are free of clogs and unpleasant odors. Check behind toilets, under sinks and inside cabinets for dampness, mold and mildew.

• Storage Areas

Remove supplies and inventory from shelves, clean, and reorganize. Move items as necessary for deep-cleaning under and behind shelving units.

Outsourced Bank Cleaning Projects

While janitorial staff can handle most of the work, some jobs require heavy equipment and specialized products. It’s best to outsource these projects to a commercial cleaning service.
