Celebrating the dawning of spring, many people are breaking out the soap and water to do spring-cleaning in their homes. But what about your office or workspace? While many of us think of resolutions as something you set in January, now is the perfect time to get out the cleaning supplies, beautify your business, and make a plan to keep it looking that fresh and clean year round. Here’s how you can do just that.
Do a Thorough Cleaning
First things first; let’s get any problems under control early on. You need to do a thorough cleaning of every nook and cranny you can find. Dust all of the ceiling fans and vents. Move all of the supplies and items from the desks and dust these as well. While you are doing this, clean the desks and supply closets out of anything that you don’t need or use regularly. This is a time to throw out what is no longer needed. It’s also a great time to hire a professional carpet cleaning service to get rid of the deep dirt and grime that has built up.
Create a Schedule
Now that you have your office looking professional and clean again, create a regular schedule of what needs to be done to keep it that way. Some tasks, such as emptying the trash, should be handled daily, while others such as cleaning windows might be more of a weekly chore. Create a checklist, assign the proper employees to maintain this cleaning schedule, and make sure that it is kept up with.
Have your employees partner up and work together to get the regular housekeeping chores maintained. This way, if someone forgets, there is a back-up who can remind them to take care of what needs to be handled.
If this sounds like a lot, realize that housekeeping tasks like this are vital to running a successful business, but they do take your employees away from their other duties and responsibilities in the workday. For that reason, you should consider hiring a professional cleaning service to come in and clean your office regularly. This relatively small, added expense will save you time and money in the long run.
A professional looking office is an absolute must. That is why you should take these tips to heart and consider how best to make sure that your business space looks its best in the coming year.
