Fall Cleaning To Get Your Office Ready For Winter

Spring shouldn’t be the only time for a thorough office cleaning.

Unfortunately the official first day of autumn is tomorrow, September 23rd and as much as we’ll miss summer pool parties, BBQ’s, and drinks on the deck, there’s something special about the turning leaves and crisper, cooler temperatures.

DBS Building solutions for office fall cleaningSpringtime shouldn’t be the only season to focus on good quality cleaning. Take advantage of the extra time you spend inside during the shorter days. Remember these fall cleaning tips for your office, to start an enjoyable and healthy holiday season.

  1. If you spend more time on the computer while at home, remember to wipe down your electronics such as your keyboard, mouse and monitors. If you know your way around computer parts, dust the CPU fan as it can get pretty dusty (office-dwellers, do this too!).

  2. For many, the fall season conjures up images of Thanksgiving meals and lots of leftovers. Don’t forget to focus on germ hot spots throughout your office kitchen if you plan on having holiday parties . Don’t know what germ hot spots are? Click here for a list.

  3. Best to get your carpet or hard floors professionally cleaned before the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Your floors might need special care depending on the traffic in the office.

  4. If you’re unpacking decorations from your storage closet, that’s the best time to take a look around at places you usually don’t clean.  Do you have a dust problem, dirty vents or extra cobwebs? See if your cleaning plan includes these problem areas and if not, contact your local cleaning professionals so they can take care of it for you.

  5. Vacuuming is an important step to annual or bi-annual cleaning, especially when it comes to your indoor air quality. We strongly suggest using a HEPA filtration vacuum. HEPA filters can remove up to 99.97% of particles as small as .3 microns (very small).

What have you neglected over the summer (or year?)

There are lots of other areas to keep you busy while you clean up, including your lobby area, windows, random storage closets and various fixtures around your office or facility.
