Every year, before the lunar Chinese New Year, it is a common practice for companies to go through an annual spring cleaning of their offices. What does it signify? Well, it signifies the welcoming of a brand new year of opportunities and success! And of course, practically, it forces everyone to declutter (yes, we are guilty of hogging too!) and thoroughly clean up every nook and cranny so that we get those pesky germs and dust out of the way to usher in a healthier office environment.
Below, we will cover the checklist used by most professional office cleaners so that you can have a peek into how much work goes into a thorough office cleaning project.
So let's get started!
A Typical Office Cleaning Project in Singapore
1. Empty Waste Bins
An office cleaning company will ensure that their cleaners visit every cubicle and room to find out where all the dustbins are loaded and then dispose all the waste in its proper place depending on whether they are recyclables.
2. Vacuum Carpets and Mats
The one place where the MOST dust, dead skin cells and what not are found. The office carpet and mat is the one place that has it all and this can pose a health hazard to your employees and customers if they are not cleaned well and routinely. A professional office cleaning service will spend significant time on this to keep office dwellers happy and healthy.
3. Vacuum Floor
For areas not carpeted, dust and dirt still accumulates and it an essential part of the process to vacuuming these areas. Hard to reach areas are usually neglected and it is crucial for your cleaning company to clean those areas once or twice a year.
4. Furniture Dusting
Furnitures are the next major area where dust settles and accumulates. Even in an enclosed area, dust travels freely in the air and lands on anything from the cabinets to the pantry tops. Office furniture that is made of wood or leather will be especially vulnerable to attracting dust and have a good wipe down regularly.
5. Disinfecting the Floor
Disinfecting the office floor of micro organisms and bacteria is essential once or twice a year to improve the health of office dwellers. Such bacteria area are usually transferred through their shoes or feet when they move about the office, toilets and wet areas.
6. Cobweb Removal
Cobwebs typically form in corners and ceilings of the wall and window panes. Your cleaning company should remove all of them every once or twice a year.
7. Glass Walls and Entrance Doors
Fingerprints and stains can be found on glass walls and entrance doors of your office and meeting rooms especially when employees use them frequently. Cleaning them helps maintain the professional outlook of your office for clients and employees.
8. Windows Cleaning
Windows are where light comes in and brightens up your office, lifting morale and energy levels. It must not be overlooked and should be routinely cleaned to maintain staff happiness.
9. Attic Cleaning
If your office has an attic, your cleaning company will clean it and clear any mice waste that may be found.

Basins are hot spots for germs and bacteria to germinate. Regular thorough cleaning is required.

Clean elevators and stairs are important and must not be overlooked even if they are just passages. Handles must be regularly disinfected and dust and dirt cleared from the hard to reach corners.

Disinfecting, cleaning and topping up of fragrances must be done regularly.
20. Vacuum Vents Cleaning
Vacuum vents are prone to dust accumulation and cleaning them is essential once or twice a year.

The first impression guests have of your business starts from the reception and it is crucial that this area be given high priority. A dirty or untidy reception will certainly affect your business's credibility.
22. Outdoor Rubbish Cleaning
Rubbish that is in the doorway or corridors may affect the passage and outlook of your business. Professional cleaners will clear that out for you too.

If office furniture is shifted from one room to another, cleaning may be required for both rooms as dust from hidden areas are thrown up when moving occurs. It is hygienic and recommended to clean up with every relocation of office space.
