Believe it or not, we’re finally rounding the final corner of winter, and that can only mean one thing.
It’s time to think about your spring cleaning plans.
If you’re running an office or commercial space, a spring cleaning might seem like the last thing on your mind. You have deadlines to meet, clients to keep happy, and larger projects to work on. Maybe spring cleaning isn’t at the top of your priority list.
But we’re here to tell you it should be.
There are many benefits to overhauling your commercial space every year and organizing a deep clean in the spring. At Pristine Cleaning Services of Georgia LLC, we’re not only experts at cleaning your space, but we’re also experts at understanding why it’s so important to do so.
Read on to learn why you should prioritize spring cleaning this year!
A Clean Space Is Good for Your Health
The first reason is perhaps the most obvious.
A good deep cleaning every year is fantastic for your physical health. Messes can build up all throughout the year, even in subtle ways, and this is never good for any business trying to promote a healthy lifestyle and work environment. To get the most out of your team, it’s important that everyone is kept healthy and free from illness.
There are some ways a spring cleaning helps here.
First, you’ll clean those items that you use every day. Your phones, keyboards, door handles, office fridges, and any other commonly touched but rarely thought about surface can get a disinfecting wipe-down. This will help you cut down on bacteria and viruses in your office by removing them entirely. Look forward to having a workplace with less sickness going around, just by cleaning these common surfaces.
Second, a good cleaning in all the nooks, crannies, and corners can remove the build-up and potential spread of dust, mildew, and mold, things that commonly grow and stay untouched through the winter months. All of these can be triggers to allergies and the immune system, potentially causing unnecessary health problems for you, your employees, and your clients.
So, to promote good health, opt for a spring cleaning.
Elevate Your Mood with a Spring Clean
Did you know that spring cleaning can actually improve your mood? Well, it’s true!
If you’re working in the same space every day, removing messes and clutter can have an enormous effect on mental health and well-being. Keeping your workspace organized, de-cluttered, and clean can relieve a burden from your mind, allowing you to feel less stressed.
You’ll feel more satisfied with your workspace if it’s tidier, and the stress of a cluttered area can be kept at bay. Our mood often reflects our environment, so don’t you want your environment to be tidy?
This is especially important in the springtime, to give your mind a feeling of renewal, a fresh start, that’s occurring out in the natural world. This can help you and your team feel happier and work better together.
Increase Focus and Office Organization
Nothing is more distracting during the day than working in a messy and cluttered space. There is research that shows that a cluttered area can be visually distracting, serving as a physical reminder of unfinished tasks and a build-up of chores.
A cluttered workspace can also simply make it more difficult to work. Files are never found easily, nothing is ever where it’s supposed to be, and you have to dig through your mess to ever get anything done. This can lead to loss of time and increased distractions – none of which are helpful when trying to stay on task and work efficiently.
To increase your focus and your productivity, spring cleaning could be the solution you’re looking for.
Keep Pests Away by Cleaning
If the messes of winter stay untouched into the spring and summer months, you may be sending out invitations to unwanted visitors.
Pests love messes.
In your office kitchen, any food that’s been left lying around, or an accumulation of crumbs, debris, and other food particles could signal a feast to insects. Bugs like ants, flies, and beetles can be attracted just by having these little messes to feed on. And once they get into your space, they’re hard to get rid of.
Bathrooms can attract bugs as well, often due to moisture that’s been left unaddressed. This is how you can attract infestations of cockroaches or silverfish. You want to eliminate excess sources of moisture by cleaning regularly and deep cleaning when spring comes.
Lastly, rodents and spiders are creatures who love the dark corners and hiding places created by clutter. Prevent an infestation by these creatures by removing clutter and removing these hiding places. It can help store your files and belongings in sealed containers rather than open cardboard boxes. You can easily accomplish this during your spring cleaning.
