It’s time to clean up the office!
Summer has come and gone, and it is time to prepare for many people’s favorite season! But how do you know your business is ready for fall? With kids at home, and employees bringing germs from all over the world due to their vacations, the office is definitely in need of a clean! Not to mention, the warm weather is the perfect time for multiplication of germs on all surfaces. No need to be discouraged though, cleaning a few key areas in the office makes all the difference and helps everyone start the fall on the right foot.
1. Carpet Cleaning
Carpet Cleaning is essential to the health and appearance of the office. Even though you may have the perfect pattern picked out that disguises the dirt, we all know that with the rainy season it is full of dirty water stains. In addition, the office will look and smell clean, which both tend to lead toward productivity!
2. Fully Clean Employee Work areas
Surfaces are the perfect place for your coworker’s germs to hang out when they pick up your phone while you are at lunch. Let’s stop the spread. A full clean of the work areas with a strong cleaner, even bleach can help minimize sick days. In addition, productivity can increase when the work areas are picked up and cleaned. Who doesn’t love a clean work space?
3. Organize Supply Closet
Yes, that closet. The closet that has paper reams disorganized, and also has the funky smell. It is time to clear out the closet, create an organizational system, and to inventory what is in there. Starting a new season with a clean closet will minimize the purchase of materials already in there and also help employees keep the closet organized going forward. A little organization now will mean less organization that has to be done in the future.
Dust is everywhere! On the book shelf in the corner office, to behind the coffee maker in the break room. Before it gets any thicker, a good dusting in the office is absolutely essential for the seasonal transition. Dust only becomes worse over time, and can drastically affect employee’s allergies. No customer wants to talk to your employee with a stuffy nose on the phone.
5. HVAC check
So it has been the whole summer, and yes, the Air Conditioning has been working with some minor tweaks. But it has been working overtime and is completely exhausted. Time to get the units checked to make sure as the weather transitions, that the unit will not have any issues. The worst thing is to have a freezing cold office. That scenario that will guarantee cold hands and less productivity!
As the seasons change, cleaning the workplace is important. Seasonal cleaning can prevent severe maintenance and health problems throughout the year and can also result in good morale! Everyone loves to work in a clean office..
