Spring Cleaning for Your Business - A Guide for Being Successful

Spring is here and the weather is starting to warm up; it’s no wonder that most of us get the itch to open all of the doors and windows, get some fresh air, and clean things out. Around this time of year, even businesses can feel stuffy and stale. Spring cleaning is not just another cleaning session you do in your house. To deep clean in the spring is a habit that needs to extend into every area of your life – including your workplace.  You should always ensure your business is clean, disinfected, and smelling great!

If it’s feeling overwhelming to Spring Clean in your workplace, you’re in the right place! Follow our tips to make Spring Cleaning manageable for your business. At Neutron Industries, we have the products you need for whatever cleaning challenges you’re facing in your workplace.

Tip #1: Schedule time for cleaning: Spring cleaning is more successful when you have a plan and schedule. Maybe you schedule a couple of days or maybe it’s more manageable to schedule an hour a day for several days that everyone spends time completing spring cleaning tasks. You might think that this sounds like a waste of paid time but nothing could be further from the truth. Any time spent cleaning and organizing will add to the productivity of your employees. When the workplace is free of unnecessary clutter, individuals can do their jobs more efficiently.

Tip #2: Create a Checklist and gather supplies:  Make a checklist of all the areas in your business that do not receive daily cleanings. Some examples may include, windows and window sills, walls and baseboards, employee refrigerators, the breakroom microwave, etc. Once you’ve created your checklist, contact your Neutron Sales Professional for guidance on the products you’ll need to clean your workplace from top to bottom.

People love to have a clear goal and this will give everyone a goal to work toward together. Us the checklist you created and whoever finishes it in time gets a prize.

Tip #4: Be the Example to Others: If spring cleaning is not a normal attitude in your work environment then why not be the first to start the spring cleaning process in your place of work?

Your employees could be itching to re-organize their space, clean those walls they look at every day, or talk about rearranging a space to help with the flow of business.

Get familiar with your workplace surroundings, you should never deal with things that could be toxic. Educate your staff on the importance of using chemicals as directed on the label.
