New Year’s Cleaning Resolutions with S.J. Services

As we head into 2023, the annual tradition of New Year’s resolutions have once again become the focus of everyone looking to incorporate slight adjustments and changes into their daily life. If you are looking to improve the overall cleanliness or hygiene of your workplace or business, keep reading for some of our recommended New Year’s resolutions that will ensure a prosperous and healthy new year. 

Establish a Cleaning Routine 

Going into the new year, make cleaning a bigger priority for your office or business. Although operating a business is difficult and has notable intricacies that can disorder priorities, put some genuine time into creating practices and protocols that will keep your space clean and fresh at all times. 

This can involve anything from requiring used dishes to be washed or put in the dishwasher right away instead of being left in the sink to dedicating 15 minutes at the end of each work day to wipe down high touch point surfaces with a Clorox wipe. Just the slightest change and a little effort will largely improve the level of cleanliness in your office or business. For further information on how to establish these cleaning guidelines in your workplace, check out our previous blog. 

Carry Out Proper Cleaning Procedures 

If you are a part of an organization that already sets high standards for cleanliness, consider looking further into the processes you have become familiar with and accustomed to. All too often, the traditional cleaning routines we have religiously followed are, in fact, not as effective as we believe them to be. 

Certain norms such as using cleaning sponges on every surface or disinfecting surfaces before cleaning them have become second nature. Really stepping back and taking a look at what your organization does to stay clean might reveal some oversights or misconceptions, making your efforts for nothing. For more information about common cleaning mistakes and how to avoid them, check out our previous blog post. 

Make Product Switches 

Gone are the days of using bleach and hydrogen peroxide to clean every surface. Modern technology has allowed for modern cleaning products to use far less harmful and abrasive chemical components. 

Additionally, in the effort of transitioning to a more eco-friendly lifestyle, there are many products available that provide the same level of cleaning and disinfection, but utilize green ingredients that are safe for kids, pets, and the environment. For suggestions on common products to swap out, check out one of our previous blog posts. 

Enlist Help 

Oftentimes, one of the best decisions you can make to help yourself is to admit when something is too much and ask for help. In a dream world, we would all be able to do everything we need to by ourselves. In reality, this is a recipe for disaster. If you or your organization is starting to suffer due to lack of time or skills in the area of cleaning, taking the time to invest in the health and wellbeing of your business is sometimes the best choice you can make. 

Booking a regular cleaning with a professional cleaning service cna make a world of a difference in your professional life. Clients or customers will notice a considerably more clean space, employees will feel more comfortable and less burdened with the threat of potential illness, and you will feel the relief of responsibility knowing that your organization’s wellbeing is in the hands of professionals.

Make Health a Priority 

Ultimately, one of the best decisions you can make for your business or organization in the new year is to prioritize health. Especially in the world we live in today, health and wellness are at a constant threat in every facet of life. When your employees or customers are able to arrive at your organization with peace of mind that their health and well being is prioritized, your business is already set up for success. 

Maintaining a healthy place of work can do wonders in so many different aspects of your professional life. For more information on how keeping a clean workspace improves mental health and company culture, visit one of our previous blog posts.
