Outdoor Spring Cleaning Checklist


Because each office environment and situation may vary, we recommend moving at your own pace and doing these chores in whichever order works best for you.

You may find it easier to work in an order that will help you avoid extra steps.

This might include steps like dusting and cleaning from top to bottom or moving around the room in a counterclockwise or clockwise fashion to reduce missing areas, depending on what you’re doing.

Cleaning Tips

  • Try using a timer to challenger yourself.
  • Learn to move quickly and stay focused as you work.
  • Break tasks down if necessary or to avoid procrastination.
  • Listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks, or talk to others as you work.
  • Customize chores to suit your household, particularly if you rent vs. own your home.
