Maintaining a Clean Office – Productive Workspace

|August 30, 2023

Maintaining a clean and healthy office space is the first step to facilitate both employee satisfaction and productivity. Evening cleaning routines are a great way to get traditional cleaning tasks completed, but here are a few reasons how daytime office cleanings can supplement your after hour efforts.

Task Prioritization

During office hours, it is important to prioritize cleaning areas that matter. High-traffic areas like keyboards, desktop surfaces, door handles, and office phones should be regularly disinfected. Other 

shared spaces like restrooms and lobbies will show signs of dirt more often than others, so frequent upkeep throughout the day will ensure that both employees and clients see that you value taking care of your office and those in it.

Clear Clutter

It is important to not only encourage employees to keep their workspaces organized and clutter-free, but to also provide a space that is easy to do so. A clutter-free environment not only looks cleaner and promotes productivity with a clean slate, but also reduces the surface area that needs regular cleaning. 

In order to allow your employees to keep a clutter free space, be sure that the desks are adequately sized for the materials they need and provide proper in-drawer storage and shelving to keep items up and off of the work space.

Have Supplies Readily Available

By offering readily available cleaning materials such as disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizers, and microfiber cloths, you empower your employees to take charge of their immediate surroundings. Easy access to cleaning supplies enables employees to promptly address spills, maintain a tidy workspace, and contribute to the overall cleanliness of shared areas, all contributing to a sense of ownership and responsibility for the workspace. 

More importantly, in the context of heightened awareness of health and hygiene, offering cleaning supplies demonstrates your commitment to their well-being, creating a workplace that prioritizes both physical safety and peace of mind.

Flexible Cleaning Times

Depending on the office’s layout and workflow, consider flexible cleaning hours that align with quieter periods of the day, minimizing disruption. Office cleaning is crucial, and should be done so effectively, efficiently, and when the time is right.
