So, here we are, it’s time for another season change and the transition is upon us; it’s time to set aside all those summer essentials and to prepare for fall, not just at home, but to prepare for fall at the office. Season change can provoke different feelings; we may feel a bit sad and down to be leaving all those warm and sunny days behind us, but we should always try to find something positive in what is to come next, right? With this season change, we are looking forward to days with still lots of sun, but maybe not so warm. We are looking forward to those beautiful fall colors that will soon surround us, to all those red, oranges and yellows. Hey, we are even looking forward to those rainy days that make you feel cozy and at peace just by sitting at the window, sipping some tea and watching raindrops. So yes, even with this season change there are still some nice things to look forward to.
But, what about fall time at the office? What is there to do in regards to cleaning the office and to welcoming the fall fully ready? Is there something we can do to get ready for winter that is fast approaching? Ok then, let’s see what we can do to make the office ready for fall.
One of the most important things you can do, at any time of the year, is to make sure the air quality at your office is of the highest quality. It is quite possible that during those gorgeous summer months windows and doors are left open for a longer period of time. Even though this breeze is great to help bring some fresh air in, it could also attract pollen, airborne viruses, and other allergens that can potentially cause various respiratory problems. That is why it is extremely important to have the air ducts professionally cleaned to help remove any possible pathogens, as well as dirt and dust that may have found its way into the office. Another thing you could do is add an air purifier in your office space to help remove any air impurities or dust. By doing so you will have a cleaner working area with the best possible air quality.
Another cleaning step related to the first one we’ve just discussed is making sure your heating system is working properly. With fall and winter fast approaching, it’s always a good thing to think ahead and make sure your heating system is running like a clock. It will surely need a thorough check after those long summer months of not being used. The best thing to do is to get professionals to check the system and service it, so you don’t end up with an icy cold office in fall or winter months, which can make your business suffer, if the office is too cold to work at. Planning ahead is key!
So, what else is there to do when preparing your office for fall and winter months? Another big part of the office is carpeting, so make sure you don’t leave them out of your fall cleaning schedule, as office carpets can also take a beating in your office space. All that heavy traffic along with dirt and spills can leave your carpets looking dull and worn-out. That is why fall is the perfect moment to rejuvenate your carpets by giving them a good professional cleaning in order to remove all stains and dirt, leaving your office carpets looking fresh and clean with a new-like appearance. Just make sure this is done by reputable and experienced technicians; they will tell you when the timing is right for your fall carpet cleaning and which are the best steps to take. We at Geyen Group South will always make sure to find the right cleaning methods for your carpets in order to have them looking as good as new.
Upholstery is also in need of a fall cleaning, so don’t forget about your chairs and couches! They see consistent traffic on a day-to-day basis, so dirt build up is quite expected. We suggest having professional cleaners come and tackle tough stains and odors on your upholstery. This will help restore the overall appearance of your office furniture and will provide stain resistance in the following months. An ideal scenario would be to have a professional cleaning service that will clean the entire office, from carpets to upholstery and fabric panels.
Last but not least, window cleaning. Why not give them a good scrub and clean them before those fall and winter months? Trying to get them clean in winter probably isn’t the best option, so now is the perfect moment to clean them before it gets too cold. Clean windows will provide more sun and light coming through, which is quite important during fall and winter when days are shorter and there is less natural lighting coming through. If it’s possible, it would be ideal to have professional cleaners to give them a thorough clean so you can be ready for colder weather.
So, there you go, here are some tips and tricks to get your office ready for fall and, eventually, winter. As you saw, now is the right time to give your office a good clean, after summer and before winter, in order to avoid any potential issues when next season change comes. Having a cleaning plan and schedule, with the help of the cleaning company of your choice is always the best possible solution. No matter which season it is, you will always have a perfectly clean and healthy office environment so your employees can have all the benefits from each and every season. Let us say goodbye to spring and summer, and welcome fall and winter in our offices. Instead of proposing a toast with a cold drink, let’s propose a toast to fall months and clean offices with a nice cup of hot tea. Welcome, fall!
