The winter is finally winding down and spring will soon be bringing us flowers, thoughts of love, and starting everything anew. This means that your thoughts are probably also turning to throwing out the old and bringing in the new by spring cleaning your office. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done, however. In this list, we will go into a few of the simple ways to commence your office spring cleaning and be ready to start anew when the flowers begin to bloom.
1. Hire a Professional Cleaning Service
One of the simplest and easiest ways to spring clean your office is, of course, hiring a professional cleaning service to come in and take care of the problem for you. When you hire the professionals, it not only saves you time it ensures that the job is done the right way as well. The cleaners with a service are trained to remove everything from debris to dust from the office, so you can start spring off the right way, with a fresh smelling, clean environment to work in.
2. Toss Those Papers
One of the hardest parts of spring cleaning an office is knowing what papers to keep and what papers to toss. If over the winter, you have lost your desk and your papers are spreading into other people’s workspace, it’s time to take a stand and a day to go through the paperwork. Toss what you don’t need and find a filing system for the ones you do need.
3. Reduce the Clutter
If the stapler sitting on your desk hasn’t been used in months and the tape is yellowing on the edges, then it might be time to clean out those drawers and make space for items that you don’t use all that often. Make sure that you still keep these items within reach, so that you can be organized and efficient, just not cluttering up your desk, which can be distracting.
4. Add Cleaning to Your Calendar
One of the best ways to ensure that your spring cleaning follows you into the summer and fall of the year is by putting cleaning on your calendar. You have everything from meetings to picking up the kids from ballet practice on your calendar, so why not put cleaning on there as well. Remember, it’s a lot easier to clean the office every day, than it is to put it off and have to spend a whole day cleaning when it’s so distracting it’s hard to work anymore.
5. Do a Deep Clean
Once the office is free of clutter and your desk is clutter free as well, it’s time to do a deep clean. After all, isn’t that what spring cleaning is all about? Clean the carpets or deep clean the hardwood floors, disinfect your desk and wipe down your computer, monitors, and other electrical equipment. Don’t forget to clean out your keyboard and give everything a dusting. You will be surprised at how much more motivated you are to get things done once the office is clean and smelling great.
6. Add Some Smell Good to the Mix
It’s always a good idea for your office to smell fresh and inviting. That’s where wax warmers and your favourite melts come in to play. It’s easier to work in an office that is clean, cosy, and reminds you of something you enjoy after all.
These are just a few of the top tips out there for ensuring that your office is clean this spring. From smells that induce you to work to deep cleaning the entire office, spring is in the air, so you should start getting ready to welcome it, don’t you think?
