Spring represents the time for office employees to re-energize and get things done in order to boost productivity and improve the mood. In this article, we share with you 8 tips for spring cleaning your workspace to make it more inviting.
1. Powerwash the Exterior
Grime, dirt, mold, and mildew not only ruin the exterior aesthetics of your workplace but damage the material of your building, as well as also have an impact on the employees’ mood. With the weather no longer shiver-inducing, spring represents the perfect time to get the power washer out of office storage and get the cleaning crew to work.
2. Deep Cleaning the Carpets
Over time, dirt and debris can accumulate deep down within the carpet which simply vacuuming alone won’t get rid of. Deep cleaning the carpets is a great way to get rid of stubborn dirt off your carpets and make them look and smell better.
3. Clear Away the Clutter
Unneeded clutter all over the workplace can both serve as a distraction and add to the stress. Declutter the office environment by removing all unneeded items that may have accumulated over the year.
4. Clean or Replace Old plants
Some of your old office plants may have accumulated a fine layer of dirt over their leaves and stems, making them more vulnerable to diseases as the weather warms up. Consider having them cleaned or buy replacements.
5. Refreshen the Walls
With time, your office walls will be witness to plenty of smudges, stains, cracks, and marks. Apply a fresh coat of paint to make the walls look fresh.
6. Don’t Forget About the Breakroom
Breakrooms are rooms at the office which employees can use during a break from work to eat, socialize with colleagues, or just relax. As expected, the place can get really messy and needs a good cleaning to get rid of any germs that may be lurking around and spreading diseases.
7. Give Your Windows a Thorough Clean
When cleaning windows, don’t just scrub the glass panels clean and call it a day. Pay close attention to the window’s borders where dirt, debris, and mold can collect and overtime. Neglecting them can run the risk of corroding the window materials and can harbor all sorts of nasty bacteria. Give your windows a thorough clean and prevent such issues from occurring.
8. Wash the Ceiling
The ceiling is one of the common areas in the office that the cleaning crew may forget to clean as the view of it tends to not be eye level. Inspect the condition of the office ceiling and if it isn’t spotless, have it washed off any dirt, stains, and grime.
