Remove Clutter

Clutter can really detract from an office. Take the time to get rid of clutter. This should include things that aren’t actually needed in the workspace. It can also help to prevent the build-up of dirt and debris. Working in a de-cluttered area will also help to improve productivity.

Have A Designated Eating Area

In a 2012 study, it was found that as many as 39% of employees were eating at their desks. While eating elsewhere may seem counterproductive, it can actually improve the cleanliness of the office and help employees to be more productive. Designate an area for snacks and lunch breaks.

Empty Trash Cans

While it might seem like this is a lot of work, but by emptying trash cans you’ll create a neater area for working. This is especially important if employees are putting food in the trash cans and it can help to reduce bacteria and germs. This can lead to a healthier workspace.


Taking the time to organize can help employees to feel more productive. Consider handy storage spaces like pen holders, drawers and cabinets and other storage solutions to help encourage organization. You won’t only have a cleaner office; you’ll also have a more productive work environment, and no one will have to waste time looking for important items.

Maintain Electronics

Have plenty of microfiber cloths on hand to help remove dust. Don’t forget some rubbing alcohol to sanitize them as well. After wiping them down and sanitizing them you may wish to use some compressed air to remove any remaining dust.

Check the Restrooms

While you don’t need to make them spotless, a few minutes of care should help. Rinse sinks out after use, pick up debris such as dropped paper towels, etc. This will help to prevent the spread of germs. This, in turn, should help to keep staff healthier.

Tidy the Break Room

Break rooms are typically the most visited area in an office. When you keep this clean and neat it can give employees a safe place to prepare snacks and meals without risk of infection and germs.

Seek Out A Cleaning Company

Find a great commercial cleaning company like Professional Choice  to help you keep your office neat and tidy. Hiring a cleaning company to come in and do the deep cleaning on a weekly basis will go far towards helping you to maintain a clean office and keep everyone healthier. A healthy office will help to keep the entire staff healthy and more productive. Offices that don’t have a regular cleaning team may find that the staff is falling ill and lagging behind in performance.
