Commercial_Janitorial_Cleaning_Austin_1Spring has become synonymous with cleaning. We are compelled by the change in temperature and the general need to organize and bounce into Spring. It has become the go-to season for millions to deep clean homes, the workplace and get rid of unnecessary clutter, and organize things. However, doing these chores isn’t just reserved for the home, they can also benefit your work space. Before you do a complete overhaul of your 40-hour-a-week home, start with this checklist! Let’s get started on Spring cleaning your work space.

Doing office spring cleaning once a year is a great way to insure that your office stays in good condition, and there’s no shortage of spring cleaning tips to help. Deep-cleaning once or twice a year can go a long way, especially for things that don’t get dirty often but seem to gather dirt slowly throughout the year. Now is the time to inspect your office blinds, baseboards and dusting the tops of cabinets and plants. Yes plants! Plants collect their fair share of dust and if you currently do not have a plant service, grab and microfiber towel and gently wipe off plant leaves. Chores that are usually done only once or a few times per year include cleaning ceiling fans, blinds, and baseboards, and dusting the tops of cabinets and tall furniture.

If you have that rock star Office Manager that I’ve mentioned in a previous blog, you can bet she/he is probably on top of the things mentioned below. I’d reason to bet that you’d be the rock star employee if you pitched in every now and then!

Office cleaning always starts by dusting off the tops of the kitchen or break room cabinets and removing or organizing any items that may be on top of the cabinets. Use an all-purpose cleaner and a paper towels to clean the fronts and shelves of the cabinets.

Tackle your catch all drawer or otherwise known as your junk drawer. Okay, you probably have more than one of these. Just go through one drawer at a time and toss or recycle anything you no longer need. Are you the employee that has a dozen dry ink pens? Personal spaces can become a catch all for all of those items you really don’t know what to do with. This is a good time to go through and organize.

Empty the fridge and clean out the drawers and shelves with a microfiber towel and an all-purpose cleaner. Don’t forget to toss old food or containers that are unclaimed after alerting employees about the office spring cleaning.

Make sure all cleaning supplies and items that have been uprooted during the office spring cleaning are returned to their proper places. Next, mark off your cleaning checklist, and you should be good to go.
