Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Office

Clean Hard-to-Reach Areas

While you may be tempted to do your basic cleaning tasks now, refrain from this and start with deep cleaning those hard-to-reach spaces. This may include the spaces behind your desks, the back of the storage room, behind the fridge in the break room, and other areas that are often neglected. Pull out any furniture you need to and clean as thoroughly as you can with the help of house cleaning Brisbane or another firm.

Clean the Remaining Areas

Once you’ve cleaned the more difficult areas, move on to the common areas. Deep clean everything from the reception area to the conference room. Vacuum and shampoo the carpet. Wipe down the walls, including behind any wall decor. Clean all the windows and dust windowsills and blinds. Scrub the bathrooms from top to bottom, and everything in between.

Organize What’s Left

Once you’ve cut down on the items you have in your office, you need to organize everything that’s left. This may include reorganizing filing cabinets, getting storage bins to keep office supplies organized, and even rearranging the office furniture into a more space-saving layout. Whatever you feel like you need to do to keep your office organized and efficient for the rest of the year, do it.

Clear the Clutter

First, take stock of everything in your building, from files to furniture to office equipment. Go through every filing drawer and supply cabinet. Is there anything that you’re storing that you don’t need? If so, get rid of it. You may be able to give away a lot of things–like office supplies or used furniture–to some of your employees. The rest can be donated to charity or thrown away.

How To Prepare For The Big Cleaning?

Unfortunately, there is no way, your only choice is to hire a professional cleaning company but we’ll discuss this later. For now, you have to make preparations for the big cleaning, which is the perfect case will take the whole weekend. You have to make a trip to the store and purchase all the necessary supplies. In order to be sure you won’t forget anything better make a list of all the needed things, I always do it.

Before you go to the store decide what cleaning products are you going to use commercial, Eco-friendly or homemade. I recommend the last one, but if you don’t feel like wasting time with preparing the solutions at least go for the green detergents. Do not use all-purpose ones, because they’ll most certainly contain dangerous chemicals and if you find a label saying ‘trade secret’ run fast. Another thing you should consider is the rooms you’ll be needing the detergent for.

If you’re going to use it for three rooms get three bottles, and do the same for all the cleaning solutions. You should also get some basic supplies like protective gloves and a mask, mop, brush, sponges etc. After you’re finished building your arsenal, head back home and distribute the detergents and tools in small boxes. One for each room so you don’t have to run from the bathroom to the kitchen for something.

In order to ease the spring cleaning and save some time do some of the chores in advance like dusting the furniture, beating the area carpets and mats take care of the drain etc. By doing so you won’t feel like a rag after the spring cleaning. Of course, there is another possibility of finishing fast with everything.
