Spring Cleaning is a yearly practice that many follow which involves a complete house cleaning, but many businesses have also adopted Spring Cleaning as a way to get organized and give the office a new refreshed look. During the winter offices become dirty and dusty in similar ways as your home. When it snows outside roads and sidewalks get covered in sand and salt which gets tracked into your office and gathers on your floors and carpets. Also because of reduced ventilation during the winter dust build up is a common problem many offices face. Spring cleaning is an important time to get organized and clean up around the office. Here are several spring cleaning tasks you should consider for your office.
De-clutter: Reducing office clutter by throwing away lose pieces of paper and moving any objects to create space is a great first step to getting your office clean. Paper creates dust which gathers around desks and can be bad for electronics and your health. De-cluttering and organizing your office will also open up space to make your cleaning more thorough.
Carpet Cleaning: Carpet cleaning is a very important for your office. During the winter dirt and debris gets tracked into your office which if not cleaned up will decrease the longevity of your carpets, and cause them to lose color. It is also important you clean carpeted areas you may not be able to see like under your desk because this is where dust likes to hide. We also recommend shampooing and steam cleaning your carpets as this will give them a more thorough cleaning than a vacuum and will leave them looking bright and new.
Floor Maintenance: Just like carpets the hard surface floors in your office can become dirty and lose color over the winter. We recommend taking a look into your records and seeing when your floors have been cleaned last. There are many floor maintained services such as buffing, waxing and stripping and sealing which you should consider. It is important to have a regularly scheduled floor maintenance program so that you can ensure your floors are kept clean and maintained.
Window Cleaning: Many offices usually don’t get their windows cleaned during the winter and wait for spring instead. Getting your windows cleaned will let in more sunlight which will give your office a brighter more inviting feel now that the sun is out longer.
When it comes to office cleaning the spring is the perfect time to remove dust and dirt from the winter. Not only will your office feel better for your employees, but it will also look better in the eyes of your clients.
