The days are getting lighter, and spring is nearly in the air. This means one thing for your office – a lovely spring clean is just around the corner!
Here at Ultimate, we like to keep on top of tidying our workspaces. Don’t underestimate the power of a spring clean in the workplace. Not only will you look your best for clients, customers and visitors, but it can also improve productivity and morale too.
Set a date in the office calendar and a time that suits everybody. Then gather the cleaning supplies – disinfectant wipes, dusters and bin bags.
Cluttered desks can be distracting and an unproductive workspace. Although we did blog in the past about how a messy desk can lead to increased creativity so maybe leave some papers lying around.
When did you last tip your keyboard upside down and whip through the keys? The amount of hidden dirt here will make you squirm, especially if you eat at your desk. If you share your desk space the germ sharing can be even greater.
It’s a terrible idea to have a junk drawer at work. How many dud pens and pointless papers does one office need? Scan in any paperwork you can to save space. Be sure to shred any important documents and take any clutter home with you.
Got time for your digital clean?
Spring cleaning in the real world takes priority. But your digital desktop needs a tidy up too. Purge old emails, unwanted bookmarks and unnecessary files. Your computer might even run faster for it.
Out with the old, in with the new…
Part of spring cleaning is knowing what to throw and what to keep. If your office chairs are more than five years old, for example, then it’s certainly time to replace them – we have some tips to help you find the right office chair. If a carpet stain won’t budge, despite your best efforts, remember that we can supply you with a spotless new carpet, we have a variety of quality flooring brands we work with including Wilson Carpets and Polyflor.
After your office spring clean if you are left thinking that there needs to be bigger changes than a desk tidy then please get in touch and we would be happy to have a chat about our office furniture and design services including office refits and refurbishments.
