The main benefit of spring cleaning your business is to ensure a cleaner and safer workspace that improves focus and mood, leading to higher productivity and happier employees. Here's a comprehensive spring cleaning checklist for the office to get you started.

Sanitize and Organize the Workstations

The average workstation is home to a shocking number of germs (10 million), 400 times more than found on a toilet seat. Therefore, workstations require more than a quick wipe-down when spring cleaning the office.

It's essential to use a disinfectant at the right concentration and a damp microfiber rag to sanitize tables, drawers, electronic devices, keyboards, and phones. In addition, you can add visual appeal by organizing and sorting out files, papers, pens, and other odds and ends to eliminate clutter.

Since we live in a digital age, remember to organize the computers. Get rid of digital clutter and improve workplace efficiency by removing junk files, clearing internet browser cookies, organizing folders, updating apps and operating systems, and backing up essential files to an external hard drive.

Deep Clean the Kitchen and Breakroom

The kitchen and breakroom need extra attention because they have many shared high-touch surfaces that can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria.

Start by deep cleaning the refrigerator. Remove leftovers and expired condiments, wash all the removable items, and use a gentle, effective, and non-scratch cleaning solution to wipe down the inside. Next, tackle the microwave, coffee maker, and other appliances by removing any buildup and disinfecting the inside, outside, handles, and buttons.

Clean the cabinets and sink, wipe down tables and chairs, disinfect all kitchen surfaces, and vacuum and mop the floor. This creates a spotless and appealing environment for staff to hang out during breaks and lunch.

Scrub the Bathrooms

The office bathrooms and restrooms may already be subject to regular cleaning, but they also need deep cleaning occasionally. That means spending more time spot cleaning, disinfecting, and paying extra attention to grime and dirt buildup.

Start by scrubbing and sanitizing all surfaces and touchpoints. The list includes restroom stalls, walls, sinks, faucets, pipework, dispensers, dryers, vanities, benches, and mirrors. In addition, it's essential to clean and sanitize toilet seats, urinals, and bathroom floors to ensure a squeaky-clean restroom experience for staff and visitors.

Refresh the Office With These General Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring cleaning the office typically happens once or twice a year, so make it count by adding the following to your checklist:

  • Vacuum the entire office
