Surprisingly, a brand new 2017 is around the corner and we’re already preparing ourselves for the holiday season. However, have you considered preparing your office for the new year that awaits you when work mode is in full force?
Those pesky papers lying around, peeping at you ever so often, making you feel slightly uncomfortable as you just don’t know if you will still need them before you close for the festive season.
Even worse, you’re stuck with a dusty desk in need of a clean, but you’re so busy trying to get everything done in time that cleaning is the last thing on your mind.
Consider these factors before officially closing your 2016 office doors, possibly even using a corporate cleaning company to freshen up the office space for a fresh new year.
- To recycle or to shred?
Truthfully, 2016 has been a rollercoaster of a year, but which year hasn’t been? Invoices, receipts, and those sticky notes that are always finding themselves everywhere except for on your desk. Do your part by recycling used up papers and stationary you no longer need. Not only will you help the environment a great deal, you’ll also prepare your desk for a much-needed break this holiday season.
- Sanitise all over
This specific task is the main reason why you need to hire a corporate cleaning company. They’ll be sure to remove 2016’s germs and bacteria lurking around, cleaning up and sanitising where it is absolutely necessary for a healthy workspace. Keeping this job for 2017 can turn into a nightmare; mainly for health reasons. This job can be daunting at first, but so worth it when you walk into a sparkling office when everybody returns from their break. To get the cleaning mode switched on, don’t hesitate to enforce the help of professionals who specialise in office cleaning.
- You’re leaving your PC jumbled
Not only should you sparkle and shine up your office, but also your computer. Working on this particular technology piece carries most of the bacteria. Surprisingly, it’s possible for your keyboard to harbour five times more germs than the average toilet seat. Apart from needing a good clean on the outside, it’ll also be a great idea to clear unnecessary files internally. Be sure to organise your files and applications on your computer as this will make your work activities easier and navigation will be faster.
- Don’t forget about the carpets
As one of the most used ‘items’ in your office building, you need to take a good look at your office carpets. Apart from the normal dust mites that you should expect on any carpet, you also need to be aware of other factors such as mould, Athlete’s Foot, germs, and causing factors of asthma. Always hire a corporate cleaning company that offers professional carpet cleaning services to ensure clean carpets for the new year ahead.
As far as starting the new year fresh, don’t leave it until the last minute. Start preparations now to ensure smooth sailing into 2017, alongside a reliable corporate cleaning company and happy employees. What are you waiting for?
