Office trailers are perfect for any business that is on-the-go or overflowing with employees. These mobile offices are sturdy, secure, and equipped to help your team get work done. While the structure itself is vital to smooth operations, its cleanliness is also a significant factor in employee health. Below are a few ways to take care of your office trailer for an all-around excellent workspace.
Perhaps the most obvious way to keep your office trailer clean is to clean it. Wipe down tables and chairs with disinfectant, dust all surfaces, and vacuum the carpet. It wouldn’t hurt to wipe down office supplies like pens and keyboards either. If your company does not have the time to give the office a deep clean weekly, you can hire a professional cleaning service. Even so, it is best to maintain as clean an office as you possibly can.
Change the Air Filter
Office trailers are suitable living quarters; they have finished interiors, lighting, and HVAC systems. While one may jump for joy at the realization their office trailer is so comfortable a workplace, one must also understand that someone has to take care of the heating and cooling system to keep it running well. Like a residential HVAC system, ones in office trailers need air filter replacements every few months at least. If your trailer sits amid a construction zone, you will need to change the filter even more frequently.
Use Windows Strategically
Windows provide natural light into an office trailer; they also give the option of allowing fresh air into your abode. In very cold weather, cracking the window for a short time can let overly-warm air out. In spring, it can keep thick pollen from penetrating the allergy-safe zone. On a construction site, it may be better to keep the windows shut, but any company can use open windows to assist in the trailer’s ventilation.
Add Air-Purifying Plants
Another way to improve the office’s indoor air quality is to add a houseplant or two. Some species are known for their air-purifying effects; aloe vera, Boston fern, and peace lily are a few of the options. It is a natural and beautiful way to bring fresh air into your office trailer. However, don’t forget to water them!
Lastly, a part of regular cleaning includes tidying up one’s belongings regularly. Besides taking out the trash, decluttering and recycling papers no longer in use is essential in a small space. Because there is less storage available in an office trailer, messes appear much faster.
