Preparation is essential in life and makes difficult tasks easier to handle. When it comes to moving your business into a new facility, there are lots of things you can do to prepare. Here is a five-point checklist to get you started.

1. Declutter

Moving into a new facility is an excellent way to declutter and set yourself up for a brand new start. Encourage employees to clean out their desks and surrounding areas before packing to prevent clutter from traveling with you. You can set up three piles ‘trash’, ‘recycle,' and ‘donate’ to get the process going.

2. Clean Before Moving Items In

Before moving anything into your new building, have it cleaned in its entirety. Without furniture and bulky items, you can access all areas to clean without having to maneuver anything. Areas not to miss are windows, vents, walls, and ceiling tiles.

3. Deep-Clean Carpets

Traffic patterns in carpet are highly noticeable once you move old furniture. Cleaning your carpet can also improve air quality. The best way to get your carpets cleaned with a commercial carpet cleaner. It’s also a good idea to set up a regular carpet and hard surface floor cleaning appointment.

4. Touch Ups and Repairs

Before moving in you should walk around your new space and make a note of needed paint touch-ups and other maintenance. A fresh coat of paint can make the new space your own and create a good first impression for guests. Also be sure to check that all light bulbs are working, there are no broken window blinds, and door handles are solid.

5. Hire a Cleaning Company

Moving in any situation can be stressful. When you are moving a whole business and a large group of people it can be even more so. Hiring a professional cleaning company can help take some of the weight off your shoulders.
