A clean and organised work environment is fundamental to further output. How would your clients react if they strolled into your business to be faced with clusters of paper work everywhere, dirty carpets and disorganised desks?
If I entered into such an office, I would turn back and exit straight away and I gamble you would too. With that mind set I’ll share with you some effortless to execute office cleaning secrets to assist keep your office glistening clean at all time, be it a city office or a home study.
Generally city business units are cleaned by professional recognized cleaning companies but there are certain things that can be done to help improve the cleanliness of these work places.
This first tip may sound obsolete but you would be surprised how many office blocks still haven’t used it to their work environment. Reduce paper clutter by bringing in a digital filing system.
It’s likely your concern already has a network, and that’s a positive starting point. Next comes a complete overhaul of the network’s file structure. This will take some time and cautious consideration.

Construct a cleaning and organisation inspection team, the idea here is to select two or three employees, determined on the amount of your workforce, to go around the office inspecting tables and drawers.
This inspection team should report directly to the office manager or to you. They should give out warnings for those who don’t keep their workstation organised and then issue penalties. That way you will incite your team to keep their tables and drawers organised at all times.
For home office workers you will have to be your own inspectors, even though you might not get any person visiting your office. Remember what was said in the beginning of this article – A clean and organised workplace boosts productivity.
Encourage recycling by adding recycling bins in your office’s kitchen and around the office. Select a day of the week to do a “paper recycling day”. You can use the cleaning and organization inspection team to go around the office asking for people to dispose of aged paper work that won’t be filed.
As my last piece of advice, I would recommend you seek specialist help to enhance even more the cleanliness and hygiene of your office. Recruit an office cleaning business and get them to do the dirty work for you.
