With Spring in full swing, it’s time to de-clutter your desk and spring clean your workplace!
Did you know 57% of workers admit to judging a co-worker based on the cleanliness of their workspace? With this in mind, what do you think your workspace says about you? With busy schedules and deadlines to meet, it can be easy to let the papers (and the dust) pile up, however it is important that you find the time to de-clutter and organise your workspace to create a cleaner and more productive office environment. A tidy desk really does make a tidy mind and can help reduce stress and increase efficiency within the workplace, therefore it really is worth it!
Here are just a few tips Eco Brite Cleaning Services would give you to get you started with your office spring clean:
- De-clutter – Clean out your filing cabinets and clear your desk of any old paperwork that is no longer needed! Do the same with any electronic files on your desktop or emails so that you can access the files you still need more easily.
- Organise – Spring cleaning provides the perfect time to create a filing system that helps reduce workspace clutter. Choose a system that works for you, whether it’s paper trays, folder, or another method that you’ll stick with.
- Sort that Junk Drawer – Every workspace has one… but do we really need to keep everything inside? Throw away or recycle any items no longer needed such as old pens, stationary, cables or promotional leaflets no longer in date… be ruthless… it’s called junk for a reason!
- CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN – Clean all work surfaces including your desk, chair handles, keyboard, mouse, telephones etc using antibacterial cleaning agent or sanitising wipes. Our desks are high germ zones, therefore it is important to regularly clean your workspace thoroughly to ensure your office environment is kept as hygienic as possible!
Establishing and maintaining a clean and organised workspace has been proven to help boost your business, however if you simply don’t have enough time to keep on top of your regular office cleaning requirements yourself, rely on the professionals and contact Eco Brite Cleaning Services to arrange a free quotation for all your commercial cleaning needs.
