8 Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Work Space

Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Work Space

Spring represents the time for office employees to re-energize and get things done to boost productivity and improve their mood. In this article, we share 8 tips for spring cleaning your workspace to make it more inviting.

1. Power wash the Exterior

Grime, dirt, mold, and mildew ruin the exterior aesthetics of your workplace and damage the material of your building and 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.

Read our blog about how often this process should occur to keep the carpets clean and smelling fresh.

3. Clear Away the Clutter

Unneeded clutter all over the workplace can serve as a distraction and add to the stress. Declutter the office environment by removing all unnecessary items 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. Refresh 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

Break rooms are rooms at the office that employees can use during a break from work to eat, socialize with colleagues, or just relax. As expected, the place can get messy and needs a good cleaning to get rid of any germs lurking around and spreading diseases.

7. Give Your Windows a Thorough Clean

Don’t just scrub the glass panels clean and call it a day when cleaning windows. Pay close attention to the window’s borders where dirt, debris, and mold can collect overtime. Neglecting them can run the risk of eroding 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 its view tends not to 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.
