Good Office Cleaning Practices To Implement
Even if clients and/or customers never see the office(s) belonging to your company, office cleaning practices are important. For one thing, the health and happiness of your employees can be greatly affected by the cleanliness of your office. The appearance of your office, and how clean you keep it, goes a long way toward defining your company's culture.
To help you in your quest for office cleanliness, we're going to offer a handful of tips. Let's look at some good office cleaning practices to implement.
Adhere to a Schedule
By booking a professional cleaning team, you can have your office cared for by people who not only know what they are doing, but have all tools needed for the job. While encouraging your employees to tidy up after themselves is fine, don't rely on them for regular or deep cleaning. Turn to a trusted company. Work with the company to decide what should be cleaned and when.
Regular Station Cleaning
Employees can certainly tend to their own stations. They can wipe down their keyboard, printer, and monitor. Encourage the use of disinfectant to guard against germ transfer. This can be done daily.
Get rid of the following whenever you can: extra pens, unused coffee mugs, expired calendars, outdated business cards, etc. They make your office look untidy and take up valuable space. They can also be distracting.
Practice Good Hygiene
Along with wiping down common surfaces with disinfectant, make sure when dealing with sensitive electrical equipment, appropriate safety precautions are taken. Confer with professional cleaners if you're in doubt as to how to regularly clean certain surfaces/equipment and what products to use.
Clean As You Go
This is particularly applicable when it comes to break rooms, cafeterias, and the like. Encourage your employees, if they make a mess, to please clean up after themselves. Before leaving the office for the day, also encourage them to make their desks look at least somewhat organized. This will be beneficial for appearances as well as making it easier for your employees to be efficient and productive.
A Place for Everything… And Everything in Its Place
You've heard this before, probably from your mom. But it applies to any work space, including your office. When effective office cleaning is executed, your supplies, files, accessories, etc. are more organized and found in an easier fashion. Anything you don't want handled by the cleaning company, simply put it away in a drawer or cabinet. Enhance office appearances, improve focus, and reduce chaos by maintaining the cleanest office space possible.
