Top Delray Beach Office Cleanout TipsIf you want to get an office tidied-up, then start with the big items first. Don’t waste time, money, and effort on doing yourself. Instead, call a junk hauling and removal service and they’ll do all the work for you to get it emptied out (plus, you can write off the expense through your business). Next, do the following:
- Go through the entire space. You should document any damage and provide photocopies to the leasing company, as well as request repairs. Take you time and account for everything.
- Clean from top to bottom. That cramped kitchen might not be much, but it can still get really dingy. Clean every nook and cranny and then restock supplies. Disinfect it and give it a final walk-through before you leave.
- Bring-in your own equipment and furniture. You should take measurements first and pre-plan where each item will go so you have the best layout. This way, you’ll spend less time and effort rearranging furniture and can get back on-track quicker.
