Having a clean entryway and waiting room creates a great first impression for guests passing through your office building. These are some of the most important spaces to focus on during your spring cleaning because of the amount of people that see these areas. In the guide below, we will explore some spring cleaning tips for entryways and waiting areas so you can make sure your office looks great from the start.
Clean off Artificial Plants
Artificial plants in your waiting room can quickly collect dust from the air. If you do not clean these very often, you certainly need to during your spring cleaning. Wipe off the leaves with a cleaning wipe or a towel with cleaning solution on it. Start from the top of the plant and work your way down. Ideally, you may want to invest in real plants if possible so you do not have to worry about this process in the future.
Clean High Windows
If you have windows in your entryway or waiting area that are not easy to reach, you probably don’t clean them as often as the ground-level windows. During your spring cleaning, you should look into cleaning these inaccessible windows to let in more light and improve the look of your building as a whole. You could hire a window cleaning company to take on this task. They will use extension poles or waterfed poles to clean off the windows from the ground. If the windows are too high for that, they will have scaffolding and other equipment necessary to get the glass looking shiny and bright. It wouldn’t be worth your investment to buy this equipment when you only need to use it a few times a year, and you don’t have the expertise to use it properly.
Fix Chipped Paint
Chipped paint cannot be “cleaned” per se, but it can hurt the look of your office. When people walk into your building, you want it to look as nice as possible. During your spring cleaning, take some time to fix any paint chipping you notice around door trims, window frames, etc., and your office will look as good as new.
Shampoo the Carpets
It may not be easy to find time to shampoo your carpets because people are constantly in your waiting area. Nevertheless, you need to deep clean the fibers and padding underneath your carpeting at least once a year to get rid of set-in stains, oil, dirt, and debris. If your office is open at all times, you may want to clean out a nearby room to use as a temporary waiting area while your carpets are being cleaned. Schedule the carpet shampooing for a time when there is the least amount of traffic possible in your office, and you should not have to worry about much disruption.
