Summer is great time time of year for an office cleaning since business often slows and you have time to get it done.

Is Your Cluttered Workplace Giving You the Summertime Blues?

Got dust bunnies escaping from overstuffed storage spaces? Is you staff working around piles of old folders, forms, out-dated files and other office debris? Is it getting difficult to distinguish between the old, broken office furniture and the newer pieces you're supposed to be using?

If so, you are probably way past due for an office clean out.

You will do yourself and your staff a huge favor when you finally decide to get rid of all the old, useless paperwork, tables, chairs, and appliances that you are no longer using. Storage space that could be used more efficiently will be opened up.

Clutter that is unsightly and possibly even a safety hazard will be disposed of. And you can use it as an opportunity to possibly re-organize some things around the office, as well.

Office Junk Disposal Needs a Plan

Good intentions don't tend to get much done. As a business owner or manager you are well aware of the reality that in order for something to get done you need a plan of action.

How many times did you look at those same junk items last summer and tell yourself it was time for a good cleaning? Maybe you thought you'd have more time to get it done than you actually did, or maybe you just procrastinated till after the Labor Day weekend only to find yourself caught up in the fourth quarter rush.

Take solace in the fact that you’re not alone. Very few business people would rank a clean out as a "high priority" task. Until it becomes one...

So, where to begin? Start with an assessment of your situation.

Here are some planning tips to consider:

  • Which part of the office do you want to work on first? Those storage rooms, for example, are not likely to be getting much use right now.
  • Consider the reception area, kitchens if you have them, and any conference rooms that see heavy use during your busy season.
  • Try doing most of the cleaning out night when the office is closed if you can. 

Being organized and having a plan is a great way to make your summer office clean out project go quickly and smoothly. Our guide can help you along in that direction.




You Can be Clean and Green!

Keep in mind that much of what you need to get rid of in your office or workplace is probably recyclable. In fact, the odds are that at least 70 to 90 percent of it will be.

For example, if you are going to be shredding any sensitive paperwork or old files and forms, the waste can be recycled. If you have any old appliances such as refrigerators from your break rooms,  broken or inefficient air conditioning units, and especially old computers, these can all be recycled.

Do you have old or broken-down office furniture such as couches, chairs and tables that need to be disposed of? No problem! These items can be dismantled and recycled if not refurbished and reused.

In your process of going through and doing a thorough office clean out, you should probably save your own office for last. That way you'll be able to spend sufficient time on it without feeling the pressure of getting everything else done and your clean out project completed.

By hiring a professional junk hauling firm like Junk King, for example, you also have the advantage of sharing in our eco-friendly approach. Because the recycling and repurposing of your junk items will be taken care of for you, you'll have the satisfaction of being a “good corporate citizen” without dealing with the logistics and details of where to take which items, and so on.
