Busy Bee Cleaning & Organization Tips

Cleaning is like exercise—people either love it or they hate it. And while cleaning may not be a favorite task of many people, it is essential to prevent illness and infection. Cleaning is even more important when it comes to an office, where cleanliness can instill a sense of professionalism, maturity, and responsibility. When it comes to office cleaning, business owners or organization leaders are often encouraged to create a plan, start small, de-clutter, “work down,” and relax. Finally, individuals who are having an especially difficult time keeping their home or office clean and organized may want to consider hiring an office cleaning service. The references of office building cleaning services should be evaluated carefully before the hiring process has been completed to ensure optimal results.

Make a Plan

As with any large project, making a plan is essential to achieving success when it comes to home or office cleaning. For best results, home owners or business men and women should start by identifying what items need to be cleaned, how often they should be cleaned, and the urgency of the tasks. When cleaning a house, most home owners focus on the areas which are used the most, and therefore receive the highest amounts of traffic. Similarly, during office building cleaning, owners should pinpoint the areas in which customers spend the greatest amounts of time. In most cases, cleaning a reception area, bathroom, and other similar spaces should be of utmost importance when it comes to office cleaning.

Start Small

Starting small can also be an effective technique to use during office building cleaning. In many cases, home or office owners can become overwhelmed when an area appears especially dirty or cluttered. Instead of focusing on the enormity of the project, individuals should start with a few, small, manageable tasks, and gradually work towards projects that are larger or more difficult. For example, during office building cleaning, owners may want to start by sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming a reception area, dusting coffee and end tables, and straightening up magazines and other reading materials. Once these smaller tasks have been completed, owners can work towards some of the other, larger tasks involved in maintaining a clean office, such as washing windows, shampooing carpets, and cleaning window blinds.


To maintain a clean office, de-cluttering is essential. Over the course of a professional career or lifetime, it is surprising how many books, pictures, and other knick-knacks a person acquires. Unfortunately, these items are highly detrimental to maintaining a clean office or home. Individuals who are determined to keep their home or work space neat and tidy should consider working through the facility at least once a year, and identifying items that are no longer of use or interest. These items can be donated to other members of the community, who will likely be able to put them to good use.

“Work Down”

While there are a variety of techniques that can be used by office cleaners to maintain a tidy environment, many professionals recommend the “work down” technique. In this process, home or office cleaners start by cleaning objects or items that are raised or elevated, such as wall-hangings, pictures, windows, mantle places, and bookshelves, and slowly working down towards the carpet or floor. By using this technique, home or office cleaners can ensure that once an item has been cleaned, it will not be exposed to more dirt or debris. In contrast, if a home or office cleaner starts with objects on or near the floor, and then “works up,” dust, grime, and other particles from elevated items may fall to the floor—resulting in a need for repeated cleaning.


A good home or office cleaner should always remember that while a tidy space is important, it is not life-or-death. Instead, a home or office cleaner should only do the best that he or she can with the resources and time available. While home or business owners are often exceptionally conscious of each and every speck of dust, visitors or customers are less likely to notice. In most cases, these individuals are often much less critical of cleanliness than home or office owners believe. For business owners who are exceptionally concerned about the appearance of this facility, an office building cleaning service may be essential.

Hiring an Office Cleaning Service

Finally, individuals who do not believe that they can keep their home or office clean and tidy on their own may want to consider hiring an office cleaning service. In many cases, office cleaning services will not only be effective at cleaning, but may also be faster than an individual who is not accustomed to the task. Office cleaning services can usually be hired on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, and may be available at a variety of different times of the day. Though office cleaning services can be expensive, they are often seen as essential for busy working professionals. An office building cleaning service can usually be contacted through personal contacts, Internet sources, or commercial advertisements.
