Christmas time is fast approaching which means many workplaces will be thinking about winding down for the year. As most office environments will close down for a couple of weeks over the Christmas break, it’s a perfect time to schedule a professional workplace clean.
When you walk through those doors at the beginning of 2019 you want to feel as though you’re starting fresh. No one wants to be thinking about work while they’re trying to enjoy their Christmas break. And no one wants to return to the same set of problems they left behind.
Getting on top of things is important in order to keep a clear head while on holiday, but this refers to more than your workload.
The state of your workplace will play a major role in how you’ll feel when you return to work, so it’s important that the office is de-cluttered, cleaned and organised before you sign off for the year.
A professional workplace clean is a full top-to-toe clean of your entire workplace, indoor and outdoor.
Think of it as a way to reset your work space and have it 100% ready for a fresh start in the new year.
Leave things as you hope to find them
Clutter and mess won’t disappear while you’re on holiday.
What’s left behind will still be there when you get back, and you will feel like you are starting the new year on the back foot.
Studies have shown that a messy workplace directly impacts productivity. The whole point of a holiday is to rest and recharge, ready for another busy year at the office. If your clutter carries over to the new year it may well affect your level of enthusiasm for being back at work.
We wouldn’t leave the house in a mess before we go on holiday purely because coming home to a mess is extremely unpleasant. The same thing applies to the workplace. To leave things as you hope to find them is the number one reason for scheduling a professional workplace clean.
Consider how you’ll feel post-holiday
Most of us experience some level of post-holiday blues. As holidays never feel long enough, we’re always left wanting more. It can take a lot of self-coaxing to get yourself out the door on your first day back, so returning to a state of chaos makes it even harder to get motivated.
You need to be kind to yourself for the first few days back at work. You’ll want to be able to come in to a clean office, sit down and start planning for 2019. You simply won’t be able to do this in an unorganised environment. Any clutter that’s been left behind will make you feel like you never really wrapped up 2018.
A professional workplace clean goes a long way in minimising post-holiday blues. It’s easy to make a fresh start in a clean office. Once you know the benefits of a completely clean office at Christmas time, we know you won’t have it any other way in the future.
A professional workplace clean is more than a quick tidy-up
Sorting through the piles of paper on your desk is up to you. But cleaning every corner of the workplace both inside and out is up to us.
You’d be surprised at what can accumulate over the course of a year, even if you have a daily clean.
Dust, mould and debris are just some of the nasties we find during our workplace cleaning. We also think it’s important to put an equal focus on the interior and exterior. This full clean requires some heavy equipment and professional expertise in order to get the job done right.
You’ll return to an exceptionally clean environment that is not housing any unwanted bacteria, viruses or allergens.
If you haven’t yet scheduled your professional workplace clean, there’s still time to do so.
We can operate outside of your office hours to avoid interrupting your staff. Or if you’d prefer to have us come in once you’ve officially shut your doors for the holiday season we are happy to do so.
Resetting your workplace is the first step in ensuring a productive year ahead.
