Is your home office gathering heaps of desk work and a layer of residue? At that point, it might be the ideal opportunity for a profound clean. Follow our step by step guide to de-clutter and deep clean your workspace:
Before you begin cleaning, de-clutter the workplace! The workplace can be a dumping ground for things that don't have some other spot to live. In addition, mail and administrative work can accumulate rapidly. Remove any things from the workplace that doesn't have a place there. Choose if you need to keep them or dispose of them. In the event that you keep them, assign a particular spot for them in your home so they don't wind up in the workplace.
Go through your file cabinet and get rid of any papers you no longer need. If you do need to keep them, but still need to thin out the drawers, consider scanning documents and saving them on your hard drive.
Before you toss the junk mail, contact the companies and ask to be removed from the list. Go through your bills and see if you can set them up electronically. Then you’ll have less paper mail to contend with on a regular basis. After making your calls, toss or shred the mail you don’t need to keep and file or scan the stuff you do need.
Take stock of your office supplies. Are you overrun with pens and highlighters? Is there a stack of post-its that you never use? De-clutter any supplies you don’t use.
Once you de-clutter, it’s time to start cleaning!
Start at the top of the room and work down when dusting: Light fixture, corners where walls meeting the ceiling and each other, shelves, pictures, and artwork.
Thoroughly clean windows, not just the glass part. Get into all the nooks and crannies!
Gadgets pull in the dust! Set aside some effort to truly clean your PC, console, printer, tablets, and so forth… Be certain to utilize a cleaner explicitly made for hardware so you don't harm them. At that point, if conceivable, stash a little duster in your office someplace for snappy cleaning around the hardware.
Take everything off your work area and give it a decent wipe down. Expel all things from the drawers and clean within the drawers too. Consider including cabinet dividers before re-filling all your them sorted out.
Clean Office Chair:
Vacuum your chair and wipe down the arms and legs.
The underneath of a desk can get really messy and dusty. Wipe down the legs of the desk and any dusty cords that live there.
Organize Cords and Chargers:
It’s very possible that there are lots of cords and chargers tangled up in the office. Take some time to straighten them and restrain them using zip ties or even purchasing clips that are made for just this reason!
While you are under your desk, wipe down the baseboards in your office.
Sweep and mop your floor. If you have carpet take the time to steam clean if you have access to a steam cleaner. If not, sprinkle some baking soda on the floor and let sit to absorb odors before you vacuum.
Add Organizational Tools to Your Office:
When your office is deeply cleaned, pause for a moment to consider whether you could add a few apparatuses or items to assist you with remaining composed. Would a notice barricade help keep papers off the work area? Would some cabinet dividers make finding the stapler somewhat simpler? Assuming this is the case, get them. In any case, abstain from purchasing sorting out items except if they would truly profit you. Else, they'll simply jumble up your recently cleaned office!
