Cleaning Tips Before Moving Into A New Office

Cleaning Tips Before Moving Into A New Office


It can generally go without saying that nobody wants to move into an unclean office. After all, you never know what kind of mess the previous people left behind. However, trying to clean up an office all on your own is also something that can take a lot of time and effort. If you are moving in on a deadline, then there’s a good chance that trying to clean the office on your own could lead to trouble.

What’s worse is that if you try to get the job done on your own, without the proper equipment or method, then you could end up doing a poor job cleaning, leaving you right back where you started with a messy office. Thankfully, there are a few methods that you can use to ensure that your office will be as clean as possible when you move in.

1. Get the Vacuum Cleaner
Even if you are planning to leave the heavy cleaning to one of the commercial cleaning companies in Adelaide, you should always make sure that you have a vacuum on-hand so that you can get all of the dust, grime, and cobwebs removed from the office. You should make sure that your vacuum has the right extensions as well so that you can clean all corners of the office. You should focus on cleaning the ceiling, any and all corners, and the walls near the ceiling when you are using a vacuum, as these are all places where cobwebs and dust can pile up unnoticed.

2. Work From the Top of the Room Down
Whenever you are cleaning, you are going to want to work from the top of the room down to the bottom. This means that you are going to be starting with the ceiling, then the top of the walls, and then the top of any cabinets or light fixtures. You will want to slowly work your way down to the ground, where you can finally sweep and vacuum everything away, leaving you with a perfectly clean office space. If you try to work from the bottom up, nothing will really happen aside from the fact that you will be doing more work at the end when you have to clean the floor for a second time. Depending on the dust, you may have to dust the walls several times if you work from the bottom up, as falling dust from the ceiling can easily attach itself to the walls. More often than not, working from the top of the room down will be the most efficient way to get the job done.

3. Know When to Call the Experts
There are times when it will be far more work than it is worth to try and get your new office space clean before you move in. If you notice that there is more dust and grime than you know how to deal with, it might be time to consider getting in touch with the experts. As you might be able to imagine, the experts will know how to get your new office space clean in a quick and timely manner, allowing you to get ready to move your equipment into the freshly cleaned area.
