When the time comes that you need to move out of your current office or commercial space, you need to pack up your stuff and clean the area before moving out to make it welcoming enough for the new tenant.
You might feel overwhelmed with the mere thought of the long and tiring process of transferring things from your present location to the new one and make sure that you clean up every single thing and every nook and corner you will leave behind.
To make this process less arduous on your part, here are a few tips to help you out.
Pack Up Your Stuff First Before Cleaning
A rather common mistake that people do during a move is that they try to clean first before they have packed up everything. What they don’t realize is that doing this only doubles your work because you need to clean all over again after you have boxed up and moved out everything.
To save yourself from all the hassle, it pack your things first before you put on your gloves to do some deep cleaning.
Assign a Staging Area for All the Packed Boxes
Or you can also take the boxes to your new office or space immediately. But, if this is not doable because of a reason or two, you can designate a dedicated spot in the space where you can put all the packed boxes. This will let you clean the rest of the areas easier and faster.
Clean from Top to Bottom
As far as cleaning is concerned, gravity is always your worst enemy. All those spiderwebs and dust that you cleaned throughout the process will soon end up gathered on the floor. Similar to the first tip about how you should pack everything up first to avoid cleaning twice, the same principle also applies to cleaning the high shelves and ceiling first before moving down to the floor.
Perform a Thorough Window Cleaning
You might want to spend more time on window cleaning to make sure that you get rid of all the dust and smudges that might have gathered on the windows during your time of using the space. A vacuum, window cleaner, and even a simple rag can do the trick to make the windows look new and sparkling all over again.
Finish Things Up at the Pantry and Bathrooms
While you are busy with all the cleaning and packing, you will probably be taking some quick trips to the bathroom. The pantry is probably one of the dirtiest areas in your space since this is where employees gather to dine and talk.
Therefore, you need to wait until the last minute as much as possible to sanitize these spaces to ensure that you can perform a thorough and deep clean.
The landlord will probably pay close attention to these parts so don’t skimp and put some extra effort in addressing even the smallest details. Once you are done with the pantry, you can move on to the bathroom.
Partnering with a reliable commercial cleaning company like Courtesy Building Services Inc will give you the peace of mind knowing that you will have an easy and seamless move.
