Making office cleaning easier for everyone
Category: Office Cleaning
But a dirty or untidy office can de-motivate employees and put off clients that visit the premises. It's therefore essential that you keep the place as clean and as ordered as you can.
Many companies hire professional office cleaning firms to come in and carry out jobs like vacuuming and wiping down desks in the evenings when staff have gone home.
However, there are some housekeeping tasks that bosses and employees need to attend to during the day, otherwise the hard work of the office cleaners will quickly be undone.
The best way to make sure your office stays clean and tidy is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to keep on top of things.
Cutting down on the amount of paperwork your office has to deal with has obvious environmental benefits and can help your employees to work much more efficiently.
However, it also means there are fewer pieces of paper cluttering up the space - sitting in piles by the printer, falling out of filing cabinets and strewn across desks.
Discourage desk lunches
It's tempting to eat a sandwich at your desk when you have a heavy workload to get through, but encouraging employees to have their lunch in the canteen or outside the office is a good idea.
Not only does it give staff a much-needed break and help to reduce their stress levels, it also means there are fewer crumbs and spillages to be cleaned from the desks each afternoon.
Place a ban on clutter
While it's nice to bring a few personal items into work to place on your desk, too much clutter can most definitely be a bad thing, so make sure you limit it.
By allowing one photo per desk and giving everyone their own set of drawers so that they can hide all of their files and other items out of sight, you'll make tidying up and cleaning much quicker.
