6 Essential Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Office
  A clean office can be a strong morale booster, helping businesses with a fresh new working environment.
Cleaning Workstations
Computers, mice, and phones – Computer keyboards, mice, and telephones are some of the most germ-prone spots in the entire office, outranking toilets for bacteria levels.
Desks – De-clutter desk areas, ensuring that desktops are free of old files, memos, or other rarely used objects. Tidy away pens and stationery by using stationery holders. Use filing cabinets and IN/OUT trays to organise paperwork.
Floors – If you’ve been using your floors as a storage space, now is a good time for clearing these out. Using filing cabinets for storage files and stow other items on appropriate shelving or in drawers.
  Windows and Doors    
Over time, windows, doors, and handles can accumulate grime and bacteria. Windows and doors should be wiped down with disinfectant solution. If you’re in a tall building, leave the outside of the windows to the dedicated window cleaners.
Storage Areas
A spring clean can do a lot of good for organisations with lots of paper files, food cupboards, or stock storage areas. Again, de-clutter your storage area, throwing out files and old stock that no longer needs to be retained.
This may be a good time for management to consider digitising files or re-arranging old storage systems to make them more space efficient, for example, by introducing new storage shelving and furniture.
  Communal Areas  
Wipe down fridges, microwaves, ovens, and other shared equipment. Spring cleaning time can be another excuse to upgrade the furniture and décor in communal areas.
Office Equipment
Wipe down printers, scanners, copiers, faxes, and any mobile devices. Board rooms or meeting room equipment and furniture may also need extra attention.
Your organisation may opt to update dryers, soap dispensers, and other hygiene facilities along with a good spring clean.
Introducing Simple Changes
Staff members always appreciate efforts to make the workplace more comfortable and hygienic.
All of these simple changes can encourage good hygiene standards, which in turn can enhance morale, reduce sick days, and improve productivity.
