Your Office Spring Cleaning Checklist

All Melbourne businesses get busy thought the year. At these busy times mess builds and grime and dirt collects. The first thing you need to understand is it’s not your fault. Even if you’re a business owner who is highly organised (which I’m sure you are) you won’t be able to get to everything.

What’s more, you can’t control everything and everyone around you. Your staff and even sometimes your customers will create mess without you knowing.

But I already have a cleaning company

Yes, this may be true but there are a couple of things you need to consider.

  • There are a lot of cleaning companies out there but they’re definitely not all the same. Some, just don’t apply a high enough standard to their work. They seem content in doing the minimum possible.
  • Even with a great cleaning company dirt, grime and mess will inevitably build up. This is the whole pretence for a spring clean.
  • Finally, out of respect for you and your employees, cleaners try not to move around personal belongings. Often staff will leave their things on and around their desk and this makes it quite hard for cleaners to do their job properly. This is actually, an excellent virtue as respect for personal belongings should be the highest priority.

What is the best time to get my office cleaned?

It really depends on your business and the industry you are in. You should consider when your peak times are and when you have the least activity.

For most businesses, this is around the Christmas period when employees go home for the holidays.

Do I need to prepare a spring clean?

Yes! Whether it’s going to be you or a professional commercial cleaning company, you must do a pre-clean declutter.

Here are a few things to look out for:

  • Clear out everything on the desks
  • Clear out from under the tables and desks
  • Clear out kitchen refrigerator
  • Organise cabinets and draws
  • Remove excess chairs

It helps to get you staff involved in this process. They will be the best people who can get rid of all that excess stuff!
