The easy way to approach business spring cleaning

  1. Start with a Plan

Before diving into your spring-cleaning efforts, take some time to assess the areas that need attention! You’ll find that you’re much more efficient if you work with a cleaning plan in mind.

Create a detailed checklist outlining tasks such as decluttering, dusting, sanitising, and organising. Then it’s time to decide whether your business spring clean should be assigned to your internal team or whether it’s better to get cleaning experts involved.

  1. Declutter and Organise

Clutter can quickly accumulate in a busy workplace. This in turn leads to decreased productivity and increased stress. Take this opportunity to declutter your workspace by removing unnecessary items and organising storage areas.

Encourage employees to tidy up their desks and workstations. It might also be worth considering implementing systems to keep clutter at bay throughout the year.


Strategies for Effective Office Cleaning


  1. Address Weather-Related Concerns

If you run a business in Bridgend, you’ll know all too well that you have unique challenges that the Welsh weather brings. Some of the unique challenges our Bridgend cleaning contracts have is dealing with damp and mould. So whether you’re looking to clean in-house or outsource to expert Bridgend commercial cleaners – this needs to be a consideration! Particularly if the Welsh weather we all love to complain about shows up. And yes we mean you cloudy rain showers!

  1. Combat Coastal Grime

While it’s fantastic being a stonesthrow from the coast, it can bring its own sets of challenges. Depending on where your Bridgend business is based, you might experience a build up of salt and sand on the exterior of your building. Regular power washing of exteriors, paths and parking areas can help combat the coastal grime and maintain a clean appearance.

  1. Focus on Allergy Control

With the lush greenery surrounding Bridgend, businesses should prioritise cleaning practices that minimise allergens. This includes regular dusting of surfaces, hoovering carpets with HEPA filters, and cleaning air ducts to improve indoor air quality.

  1. Stay Environmentally Conscious

Bridgend residents often value sustainability and eco-friendly practices. Businesses can appeal to this environmentally conscious community by using green cleaning products and practices that minimise chemical exposure and environmental impact.

So regardless of whether you’ll be using expert commercial cleaners, or looking to tackle the spring cleaning internally – this needs to be a conversation you’re having!

  1. Adapt to Seasonal Shifts:

Bridgend’s weather patterns fluctuate throughout the year. The Welsh weather is also known to change within the same season, with different weather conditions surprising us all the time. Just think of the May snow – nobody expected that!

But whether you’re just looking for spring cleaning, or need to set a cleaning plan for year-round, it’s important to focus on how the weather impacts things. For example, deep cleaning is great to do in the spring to help get rid of that winter grime and prep for the (hopefully) warmer months ahead.

  1. Collaborate with Local Experts

Partnering with a Bridgend-based commercial cleaning company familiar with the area’s unique cleaning needs can ensure that businesses receive tailored cleaning solutions that address local challenges effectively.

It also means that you’ll be taking the burden off your staff. Allowing your team to focus on their daily duties without worrying about trying to be cleaning experts.

  1. Deep Clean High-Traffic Areas

High-traffic areas such as entryways, break rooms, and bathrooms can harbour dirt, germs, and odours if not cleaned regularly. Invest extra time and effort into deep cleaning these areas. Look at paying close attention to floors, countertops, appliances, and fixtures. Consider using eco-friendly cleaning products to promote a healthier environment for your employees and customers.

  1. Refresh Carpets and Upholstery

Carpets and upholstery can trap dirt, allergens, and smells over time. This impacts the overall cleanliness and appearance of your workspace. Schedule professional carpet and upholstery cleaning services to remove embedded dirt and stains and restore freshness to your workplace. Regular maintenance can prolong the life of your carpets and upholstery and create a more inviting atmosphere for employees and visitors.

  1. Don’t neglect the exterior of your building!

Don’t forget about the exterior of your business when spring cleaning. Sweep pathways and parking spaces, remove debris and rubbish, and trim overgrown plants and weeds.

It’s a good idea to schedule power washing services to remove dirt, grime, and mildew from exterior surfaces. Make sure they’re paying attention to the walls, windows, and any signage that you have! A well-maintained exterior enhances curb appeal and makes a positive impression on customers and people passing by.

  1. Implement Regular Cleaning Protocols

We know that you’re just looking for business spring cleaning tips, but it’s a good time of the year to implement your regular cleaning protocols too! After all, there’s no point in going to the effort of deep cleaning your business if you aren’t going to continue that effort.

We’d always recommend working with a trusted Bridgend commercial cleaner like ServiceMaster, as it often is the cheaper option in the long run. Plus you get the added benefit of their experience, high-quality cleaning products, and tools.  

However, spring is a great time to set up your cleaning protocols for internal staff too. Think about who needs to do what, when, and how often. This can help break up the burden and make it easier for your internal team to manage.
