Cleaning the office is normally one of the most dreaded tasks, yet it remains vital in order to ensure the health and wellbeing of your workforce. Whilst we would suggest appointing a commercial cleaner to ensure all problem spots are completely cleaned, we’ve also put together a few tips for office cleaning on a budget.
First things first, you will need to de-clutter and organise the office. Make each employee responsible for their own space and divide jobs for organising shelves, bookcases, drawers between the workforce. This exercise can help with team building too.
Get rid of any items you haven’t used in the last four weeks and keep only the necessities on your desk. By clearing the space, you will be able to conduct a thorough clean of the office. Clean and clear desks make way for productivity.
Unless you have an office cleaner, you will need to buy the right products for use when cleaning different surfaces.
A trade tip, though, is to use lemon juice. It’s one of the best natural cleaners due to the antibacterial properties it possesses, as well as its low PH. With its fresh smell, lemon juice is a chemical free way of cleaning materials such as fabric or wood with very little risk of damage.
To clean laminate surfaces the natural way, use a diluted lemon juice solution in a spray bottle. Simply spray, rinse with water and wipe dry afterwards. The fresh smell is sure to lift the office space and bring that spring feeling indoors.
Microwaves are notorious for harbouring germs, especially in busy offices. If you do not have an office cleaner, we have a tip for you. Place a cup three quarters full of water and lemon juice into the microwave and heat until it’s boiling – leave the door closed for around ten minutes. After the ten minutes, use a clean cloth to wipe away food particles and get rid of those unpleasant food odours too.
Do your employees bring food to work? Another tip is to soak containers in diluted lemon juice, add some baking soda and scrub. By doing this, the stains and odours are removed leaving them clean and fresh ready for tomorrow’s lunch.
These tips are designed to make lemons work as more than just one of your five a day. But to remove the hassle of cleaning, why not let Mrs Bucket work for you? We can help to give your space more than the annual spring clean and have it lemony fresh all year round. (Add link to corporate offering)
