Office cleaning tips

A busy office with a large group of employees can become messy very quickly. Due to the bustling activity of the workers, some messes may not get cleaned up right away or may be forgotten about altogether. Fortunately, we provide office cleaning services that can help to maintain the professional look of an office. The following are some other reasons why it is beneficial to hire us for office cleaning services as well as some office cleaning tips for employees to help in the effort to keep an office clean.

At Allpro we sweep tile floors, vacuum carpeting, wash the inside of windows, and dust office furniture. These are all services that help establish a welcoming atmosphere in an office. We know where to find the places within an office where dust and dirt collect. Restrooms must be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent a build-up of bacteria and germs that can cause illness.

Piles of Paper

One of the biggest office offenders is piles of paper — on your desk, on your shelves, and eventually on your floor. It’s easy to get busy and start stacking papers to file for later, but before you know it, you have a task that’s too big to tackle. The key is to process papers as you go. Set up a system of trays or file folders that are clearly labeled and make it a habit to use them.

We know that you eat at your desk so you can work through lunch. And it certainly impresses your boss, but your co-workers are probably snickering about the week-old stroganoff stains. Fortunately, it’s a simple fix. Head to your local office supply store, pick up some wipes that are specifically made for electronics, and make it a point to wipe down your keyboard and monitor daily. Not only will it keep dust and debris from gumming up your computer, but it also helps keep germs at bay.

Your Desk is not the Kitchen Table

If you’re like many people, your desk probably acts as the kitchen table for your office. It’s the place where everything gets dropped, and pretty soon you have to dig to get to yourcomputer. A clean desk will guarantee more productivity, but you’re already so busy trying to be productive, who has time to stop and clean? The key is to schedule it daily, and treat it like it’s a meeting you can’t miss. It helps if you minimize the tchotchkes and picture frames and only keep work essentials on, in and around your desk.

The Commercial Landscape

A well-maintained commercial landscape speaks volumes about your business or property. The time and effort that you put into how great everything looks is an investment unto itself. So there’s no reason to neglect your commercial landscape.

Maintaining a commercial landscape takes care and time. To ensure that everything looks beautiful and plentiful, equal amounts of energy needs to be applied during all seasons of the year, not just during spring and summer. Not only does your commercial property benefit from a beautiful landscape, so do the people who visit your business.

So to help you create a wonderful and hearty commercial landscape that brings lasting effects and repeat business, here are 5 tips to help you manage the workload throughout the fall.

Plan of Attack

No matter your level of expertise or your desire for extravagance, always have a plan of attack in place. Deciding what you want, and how you want it done, is important in setting a landscape standard for your commercial property.

Look at the Big Picture

A landscape’s design scope helps your commercial business succeed on a larger level as well. How you correlate your aesthetics with your building’s colour and architecture is important to how others perceive what you have to offer. That’s why, it’s never a good idea to try to mix elements together that are uncomplimentary. When landscaping is done correctly, however, the end result should enhance what you have and add to the building’s architectural beauty.

Inspiring Designs

To add to the above statements, consider landscaping with native grasses and plants. Not only will plants indigenous to the area add an element of comfort for those who visit your commercial business or property, they are far easier to care for in the long run. One of the biggest mistakes a commercial property owner or manager makes is when they attempt to add exotic elements to an otherwise simple property. Plants that fall into this category never last long, and you can pretty much guarantee that they will die during the winter.

Throw Down the Welcome Mat

Finally, a commercial landscape should invite people to come inside by creating a welcoming entry, a true statement in every season. The entrance to your commercial building is the first thing that people see, so guarantee that they feel welcomed by adding bright colors near the ground along the door. People who feel welcomed by your entryway are more likely to return, which is just another important benefit of a great landscape.

The more work you put into your commercial landscape, the greater the chance of creating long-lasting customers and clients.

It’s never too late to get your commercial landscape in order. For more information on how we can help you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
