A clean, organised workspace does wonders for business, not only will it benefit productivity and office morale but it also makes a positive and professional impression with coworkers and superiors alike. Keeping your office clean and organised doesn’t have to be difficult with these simple tips and tricks for office cleaning.
Clear The Clutter
Take a walk around the office and try to separate what your business needs. Most offices accumulate a lot of clutter, especially older companies. This unwanted clutter may comprise of unopened junk mail, old receipts, paperwork and even garbage. Begin the process by creating three different piles to help organise the sorting process. The first pile is to be used for items that are clearly disposable, trash or items that no longer serve a purpose. The second pile is meant for things that need to be stored, and the third pile is for items you are feeling undecided about. Once you have completed all of the sortings, take the first pile and throw it all out! Then use the new found space to find more efficient storage for items in the second pile. Then take another look at your third pile, try to make some decisions and move some of the items into your new found storage area or intro the trash. With the remaining items place them into an out of the way container and slowly go through it as you have the time to make some decisions.
Pause Before Placement
Whenever bringing something new into the office, even if it is only temporarily take a few minutes to think about its purpose. Is the item truly necessary to the effectiveness of your business and if not it does not belong there.
