Summer is great for many reasons, one that probably isn’t the first to spring to mind is that it is the best time to step back and take a look at your office’s appearance and cleanliness.
With employees likely to be taking annual leave days to jet off on holiday it provides an ideal opportunity to nail down on the cleaning and get tasks done that might evade you throughout the rest of the year. Not to mention, the sunlight beaming in makes the dirt instantly more visible! We’ve put together some office cleaning tips on things you could consider this sunny season:
- Keep your desk clear
Dust builds up all year but chances are that you will only realise when the sun shines through and lights it all up. By making sure your desk is as tidy as possible at the end of the day not only will you feel organised and productive, you also minimise the chance of dust and crumbs building up amongst any clutter and papers.
- Give the walls some attention
Most offices have light coloured walls which can show up marks particularly easily. With the weather being warmer you will be able to give your walls a wipe down and a lick of paint and have it dry off much quicker.
- Dispose of food
Keeping food overnight in your office during the summer months is risky business! Even with air conditioning the heat can come through and make your food rotten, smelly and attract germs. Make a habit of throwing away any leftover foods before you leave for the night to avoid any smelly surprises the next day.
- Cure the carpet
Given the amount of time that staff members spend in the office, it is always going to be difficult to keep the carpet clean. With less employees in the office over the Summer period, now is your chance to tackle those stains that have been catching your eye all year.
