How to start your business year off with a clean office space

There are a lot of benefits of having a clean workspace, from increasing productivity and boosting the physical and mental health of your staff, to being an integral part of your customer service when dealing with clients in-house. In this blog, we’re going to tell you some tips to keep your office clean all-year-round.


Always organize your paperwork and declutter the desk space

The key to having a clean office is to make sure that there is no mess on your desk. Make sure you’re keeping everything organized. A huge difference can be made by little things like filing away paperwork or storing it on desktop trays, then recycling it when it’s no longer needed, as well as taking used mugs and other utensils back to the kitchen at the end of the day to put in the dishwasher.





Clean the restrooms on a daily basis

Office toilets need to be cleaned every single day in order to ensure employee and customer safety. The toilets need to be scrubbed, the counters need to be wiped and the floors need to be mopped every day after working hours in order to get rid of all the bacteria which have been built up through the day.





Keep electronics free of dust and dirt

To clean your electronics without damaging their functionality is to wipe them with a soft rag moistened with a disinfectant, or using a duster to get into the spaces between keyboard keys etc. But it’s important to make sure that you’re not getting any excess moisture into your devices because it could cause an array of troubles from malfunctions to short-circuiting the whole office.





A clean break room

Tea rooms and lunch break rooms at your workplace should be clean at all times. Wipe the microwave after it has been used, load the dishwasher at the end of the day, give the counter a clean and empty the bins.
