Spring is a mere few weeks away; this means it’s almost time for spring cleaning the office. Yes, the office! Spring cleaning doesn’t only end at home; your office needs to be spring cleaned as well.

Just as you’d spring clean the house getting rid of all the unwanted and unused items you do the same at the office.

From disposing of unused office chairs and desks to clearing out the office file cabinet of files from 10 years ago, spring cleaning the office comes with many benefits and beyond the benefits. A clean office is a good reflection on yourself and the company

  1. DON’T BE A HOARDER

Hoarding is a pandemic across the world, with many people not even being aware it occurs in their lives until it is too late. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (https://adaa.org/understanding-anxiety/obsessive-compulsive-disorder-ocd/hoarding-basics) goes as far as describing hoarding as a disorder that may be present on its own or as a symptom of another disorder. Those most often associated with hoarding are:

- obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD),

- obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD),

- attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD),

- and depression.

As you prepare to spring clean, you must be able to prioritise what is essential and valuable to what is not. In turn, this assists in getting rid of the unnecessary things at the office, from the old computers that are stacked away in the storeroom to the office chairs with broken legs sitting behind the door.

  1. DIVIDE YOUR OFFICE INTO SECTIONS

Before you start spring cleaning your office, it is vital to divide the office into sections. This division will assist in breaking down the workload, also giving you a clear indication of what needs to take priority.  So, start by doing a walk around the office to identify which areas need attention first and prioritise those. For example, if your office filing cabinet is not as full as the area behind the door, then you can choose which of the two, to begin with first.

  1. CLEAN OUT YOUR DIGITAL SPACE

Nothing is as frustrating as an inbox full of unread emails with no clear indication of the priority. The first step to spring cleaning your digital space is cleaning out your inbox. Read, reply, and delete emails you no longer need. After you’ve done that the next area is the desktop, remove unused desktop icons on your computer by filing documents away into folders and deleting duplicates. After all the fewer items on your screen, the easier it will be to find what you need quicker.

  1. INVEST IN NEW OFFICE FURNITURE
