As a business owner, you know that it’s essential to run a well-oiled and efficient business in order to make any sort of profit (and keep several satisfied customers as well). But have you ever considered keeping a clean office to be near the top of your daily to-do list in your place of business?
When you make cleaning a priority in your office, you’re not just keeping a professional profile. You’re also helping your employees become more productive, keeping your customers and employees safe, and prolonging the life of your equipment. Here are 5 tips to help you keep a clean office!
Discourage Eating Lunch at the Desks – Employees tend to just eat their lunches at their desks, hoping to be efficient in getting work done while eating. Not only is this not particularly a healthy practice for your employees, it also can be messy and unprofessional if clients come in and see loose crumbs and wrappers around the workspaces. Instead, encourage them to eat in the break room or outside of the office to both enjoy themselves and keep their spaces clean at the same time.
Keep Common Areas Clean – High-traffic areas can become dirty quite quickly. Take the time to straighten up high-traffic areas and clean them properly. Consider delegating the cleaning to all of your employees. When everyone works together and cleans, it goes by much more quickly and everything gets cleaned as well.
Take Care of Office Plants – Plants can help liven up an office space, but if the plant is shedding leaves, it can look quite unprofessional to customers. Make sure to water the plants often and pick up any fallen leaves frequently to maintain a clean look.
Keep Desks and Counters Clean – A clean desk is a happy desk! Make sure to keep spray bottles of wood and glass cleaner and hand wipes in the office to help wipe down dirty and smudge-covered tables and desks. Don’t forget to clean around and behind desks, couches, chairs, and other pieces of furniture. A cheap floor vacuum or sweeper will work perfectly and make cleanup a quick and easy task.
Disinfect the Restroom – A clean bathroom isn’t just necessary for a clean company office; it’s important to keep it clean and tidy for the safety of your employees and customers. Strive on cleaning the restroom(s) every day. Remember to scrub the toilet bowl and seats, wipe down the sinks and counter areas with a disinfecting cleaner, sweep and mop the floors, and refill soap dispensers, paper towel holders, and toilet paper dispensers.
