Start 2017 Right with an Office Deep Clean
There’s nothing like a new year to remind you that there’s no time like the present to turn your business around and ensure it’s forever on the up and up. Therefore, at the beginning of this year, you should sit down and think carefully about what you can do this year that your business didn’t score as well in last year. Do you need to up your productivity? How about your staff engagement or client retention?
Some things require a lot of planning, but at least there’s one thing you can see to help your business out: its presentation. Here we’ll be showing you how you can start 2017 right with an office deep clean!
Deep Cleaning Your Bathrooms and Kitchen Areas
The most obvious places to clean in your office are the bathrooms and kitchen areas. These areas, if unmonitored for even just a couple of days, can quickly become dirtied. For the health of your employees and any visitors you have, these areas should be cleaned daily.
However, at the start of the year, we can focus on a deep clean. Clean out the fridge and give it a full antibacterial wipe down; do the same thing for your coffee machine and don’t forget to check under your sink for damp!
In the bathrooms, be sure to bleach everything heavily to ensure all drains are properly cleared. Check to ensure that all plumbing is working appropriately to avoid catastrophic mishaps.
A Thorough Carpet Clean
Vacuuming your carpets alone won’t suffice to keep them clean in the long run. January is one of the quietest business times of the year, so capitalise on the relaxed period to clean your carpets thoroughly. Carpet cleaners essentially shampoo your carpet before vacuuming out the muck. Once dry (and it may take a while to dry!) you’ll notice an immense difference in the colour of your carpets for the better.
Don’t Forget Your Windows
From the outside, all people can see of your office is its windows. As such, if your windows are allowed to get dirty, either on the outside or inside, the esteem people hold your company in could slip. As part of your deep clean, diligently clean the glass and window sills. Not only will people outside be impressed, but your employees will be happier at work because they can see outside so much easier!
Pay Close Attention to Your Lobby
Your company’s lobby area is the first thing your visitors will see is your office’s interior, so make sure it’s in pristine condition! The new year deep clean is a great time to make sure it’s up to scratch, but then you must ensure it never slips up. Clean the windows, the carpet, dust it thoroughly and think about introducing some new items of furniture to greet the new year in style!
Stock up on Cleaning Supplies
Finally, one of your office’s new year’s resolutions should be to not let the office get messy in the first place – clean as you go! For that, you’ll need a hefty reserve of cleaning supplies, including detergents, cloths, sponges and air fresheners.
What’s more, you should also consider purchasing your very own cleaning equipment if your business sees heavy traffic. But regardless of whether you’d like to hire or purchase your cleaning equipment, Alpha Power Cleaners will be here to help.
