Spring is in the air, and so is the mess that winter left behind. Now is the perfect time to purge, organize and deep clean. Let the season of new beginnings be the motivation to kick start a fresh new feel in your office. Not only will your office look and smell fresh, you’ll feel lighter and this will help produce more efficient employees. Here are six tips for spring cleaning your medical office.
The flooring of your medical facility has taken a beating this winter season. A thorough cleaning of the floors should be a top priority this spring. Not only does a good cleaning give old floors a revitalized appearance, it adds a freshness in the air and extends the life of the floors.
With spring come allergens, so it’s important to clear out the particles that have settled in your office. Pay close attention to those hard to reach areas such as ceiling corners, light fixtures, air returns and baseboards. Pull out filing cabinets, bookcases, desks and ensure the dust bunnies are cleared away.
Schedule a time to have the upholstery in your office professionally cleaned. Removing grime, dust and stains from furniture gives your office a more professional feel, gets rid of germs and helps it last longer. Don’t forget about wiping down and sanitizing tables, and get rid of outdated magazines. This is also a great time to focus on deep cleaning and organizing desks; get rid of clutter, throw away old papers and maybe implement a new filing system.
A nasty winter build up is common and will affect the appearance of building and sidewalks after the season. Mold, salt, dirt and other build up can take away from your professional image. Make an appointment to have your building and sidewalks pressure washed so your property looks as fresh as the inside.
No one likes to do windows, but it’s an essential part of spring cleaning and a necessity after pressure washing. Cloudy windows filled with dirt and grime not only detract from your spring view, but they will have a big impact on the appearance of your building.
While you’re in the cleaning mood, now is the time to pay attention to your website and online presence. Polish up your website design, review the content, add a blog section, replace outdated images with new ones and reinforce call to actions. Once that is done, check the internet for negative reviews and ensure any information that comes up in a search is accurate, such as contact and location information.
While it may seem tedious, spring cleaning your office will be worth your effort. When you and your staff enter a rejuvenated and fresh office, you will all feel less stressed, more energized and ready to start your day. More importantly, your patients will feel this as well!Posted by
