10 Ways to Get Your Office Building Ready for Spring

Springtime means the arrival of many good things, like flowers and sunshine, but it also means that you have a lot of work to do to salvage the damage the winter caused on your office building. From inside to out, here are the 10 things you need to do to get your building spruced up and ready for the season.

Pressure Wash Walls and Windows

With all of the snow and ice that have been covering up your grounds for the last few months, it is no secret that your building is going be dirty once all of the snow subsides. The easiest way to give your building a fresh look is by pressure washing it. Hire someone to clean it from the roof to the ground, including the windows.

Wipe Away Cobwebs

Spring-cleaning isn’t just beneficial for your home. Your office building can greatly benefit from a deep cleaning, both inside and out. Not only will it make your building look better, it can also force your employees to get organized, and therefore, be more productive.

Change Out Light Bulbs

Spring is a great time to make sure all of your light bulbs are in working order. For an added benefit, replace the burnt out ones with CFL bulbs to increase your office’s energy efficiency. There are CFL bulbs available in all sizes and for all uses for indoor and outdoor use.

Get Sidewalks Repaired

Something else heavy snow and ice is known for is damaging walkways. You want to get any cracks patched and loose bricks repaired. Not only will it make the entry into your office building look better, it is also a liability issue.

Test the A/C

The days of needing to run the air conditioner are not far away, so you want to make sure to get the equipment tested to ensure it is safe and that it actually works. You will want to allow time for any repairs, if needed, before the air conditioner becomes a must-have.

Inspect the Roof

Wintertime can also wreak havoc on your roof. So much so that a post-season inspection of your roof is worthwhile and may save you from more costly repairs in the future.

Freshen Up Paint

Another simple change that can go a long way in improving your office for spring is to apply a new coat of paint. Premiere Works painting provides both interior and exterior paint jobs to make it seem like your entire building underwent a renovation.

Change Up Furniture

Bright, lively colors signify spring; there are no questions about that. One easy way to make your office in the mood is by switching out your drab, rundown chairs to new, bright-colored pieces.

Revitalize Desk Accessories

If new furniture isn’t in your budget, you can have the same effect by adding in some colorful tape dispensers, pens, or even paperclips. It’s all about livening up the mood and letting the season shine through.

Bring the Outside In

Now it’s time to bring in some plants to finish up your spring improvements. If you aren’t keen on having to keep a real plant alive, there are plenty of silk varieties that will provide the same cheer-inducing benefits.
