At most workplaces, the unfortunate truth is that deep cleaning is the last thing on anyone’s mind because right throughout the year, everyone is too busy working hard to help make the most money for the company and in turn try to make enough money for themselves in order to survive in this fast paced world. The common practice in most offices is that each person is responsible for their own workspace and they will keep their own spaces tidy when they can but in some cases, even this is not possible as most staff are busy working long hard hours. Even in cases when the staff of the office manage to keep their own work spaces clean, they rarely have time to clean up public spaces such as store rooms, lunch areas and deep cleaning is something that rarely happens. The month of December is a time when work slows down as most offices and staff tend to take their annual leave and therefore business in in general becomes slower allowing company owners to invest some money in having their offices cleaned.
Hiring the professionals
While your office staff themselves will be able to get together and clean up the office for the most part, you will need to invest some money in hiring professionals to do deep cleaning such as hiring a carpet shampoo service in Singapore. Most people are unaware of the fact that the carpet is one place in the office that gets the dirtiest and is cleaned the least. As a result, the carpet in your home and in your office becomes a breeding ground for numerous bacteria and dangerous disease causing germs. As such, it is vital for you to invest money at least every few months to have your carpets professionally cleaned and disinfected in order to prevent the spread of disease.
Make it fun and enjoyable
It is important for you to remember that office cleaning is not a part of your employees’ job description and therefore there is no obligation on the part of your sales personnel or your marketing personnel to help with cleaning your office.
However, getting your staff to help with the cleaning process will save you a lot of money and therefore it would be a good idea to make it a fun activity with lots of good music and good food so that the cleaning day at your office will be a fun activity and will serve as somewhat of a break from their everyday routine.
