Spring cleaning is a habit to extend into every area of your life. Your place of work is no exception. Make time each year to go through a list, specific to your business or workplace, of things you need to do in order to make changes to anything that may need some cleaning up or a change in direction. Here are some ways you can extend spring cleaning into your place of work and do it in a more manageable way.

Set Aside Specific Days for Cleaning

If you are the owner of a company, perhaps you could set aside a few days each spring when all your employees, including you, use their time for spring cleaning tasks. Does this seem like a waste of paid time? Nothing could be further from the truth.

Any time spent cleaning and organizing will add to the productivity of your employees. When the workplace is free of unnecessary clutter, individuals can do their jobs more efficiently.

If you are an employee, perhaps you could talk to your manager about arranging something like this. Even if that doesn’t happen, you can still spend some time alone making your office or cubicle a more pleasant place. It will give you and others around you a boost in morale.

Challenge Co-Workers or Staff to a Friendly Competition

Whether you are a manager or not, challenge your staff or co-workers to a friendly spring cleaning competition. This gives everyone a goal to work toward together. A little competition can go a long way when it comes to keeping up your resolve to get the spring cleaning done.

Lead the Way

Be the first to start the spring cleaning process in your place of work. There will be nothing more motivating to the individuals around you than seeing what a difference your effort has made. Be the one to take the initiative, and your efforts will be rewarded as they are mirrored by those around you.

Hire Some Help

If spring cleaning is going to be a huge task, consider hiring a professional to assist you in your efforts. Especially when there is a large common area, it may be easier to have one person hired specifically for the task than to add to everyone’s workload.

Be Aware of Health and Safety Hazards

When you are embarking on your spring cleaning mission, always put safety first. Educate yourself about your workplace surroundings.

Are there chemicals stored that you need to be aware of? Are there any items that are important to stay away from, or to approach with caution when cleaning? Always use great care and take proper precautions when cleaning areas that are known to be dangerous, or that you are not knowledgeable about.


Spring cleaning is just as important for your workplace as for your home. It may seem like a big talk, but you can encourage your team to make it happen together. With a little motivation, some necessary precautions, and a good dose of teamwork, your place of business will be clean and running smoothly in no time at all.
