Feeling motivated to tackle spring cleaning in the office this year? There are many compelling reasons to reorganize and declutter, including the potential for improved mood and productivity. If you’re ready to get started but the task feels overwhelming, consider the tips we share here. Breaking down spring cleaning into manageable steps will help you get the job done. With this checklist and EON supplies by your side, spring cleaning will be a breeze.
Start With Decluttering
If tidying up the workplace feels like a daunting endeavor, start by decluttering each room. Deep cleaning and organizing will be much simpler when unnecessary items are no longer crowding the space. As you begin the decluttering process, be sure to have plenty of bins on hand. Whether you’re working with teammates or solo, bins will make it easy to sort items into categories such as toss, take home, or donate.
Digitizing and decluttering go hand in hand. Once you’ve had a chance to sort through papers and toss or shred what’s no longer needed, you can start scanning and uploading important files. Anything that can be stored in the cloud can help the office reduce paper clutter and make it easier for team members to find what they need in one centralized location.
Wipe Down Surfaces
Even though the cold and flu season has passed, wiping down surfaces is still important. Surfaces such as keyboards and light switches house thousands of germs, so be sure to sanitize on a regular basis. When surfaces are freshly cleared, it’s the perfect time to give them a thorough wipe down with your favorite all-purpose or homemade solution.
Reorganize the Office Supply Room
When you’re focusing on an office-wide spring cleaning session, don’t overlook the importance of organization. Commonly used spaces such as the office supply room tend to get a little disorganized throughout the year, so it’s ideal to make time to sort and label occasionally. Clearly labeled bins and other organizational products will make a world of difference in keeping the supply room neat and tidy. While you’re sorting through supplies, be sure to take inventory so you can place an order to avoid running low on critical products.
Clean Out the Fridge
In a busy office environment, it’s easy to forget about personal food stored in the breakroom fridge. Before you tackle the ice box, consider sending out a fridge-cleaning notice. This serves as a friendly reminder for them to clear out any food or beverages that may have been forgotten. After removing all containers from the fridge, give the surfaces a wipe down with a gentle cleanser.
When the office is clean and free from clutter, employees are more likely to feel at ease and able to put in their best work.
