Three Major Benefits of a Clean Office
We have all heard the phrase ‘a tidy house is a tidy mind’. This is also true when applied to the office. When you spend almost as much time at work as we do at home, it really does pay to have a clean and tidy workstation. Not only does this improve your state of well-being, but will also help increase your productivity too. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the easy things you can do to help, and how in turn they can help you.
Peace of mind
The last thing you want when you finish work is to come home to a house that needs tidying. The exact reverse is true too. As if the Sunday blues were not bad enough, you could really do without the weight of a messy desk and unkempt keyboard on your mind. On a base level, this just gives you nicer area to work in. Beyond that, tidiness and cleanliness will help reduce stress and anxiety. If you are working in a fast-paced environment, this will make a massive impact on your wellbeing. You might also find that your tidy desk has a bit of a knock-on effect. By you keeping your station clean, you’ll influence your near-neighbours to do the same. This adds a greater sense of peace of mind for you and your colleagues.
This might seem like a more obvious one. But it is often overlooked. Most people do not associate untidiness with their health as much as you think they might or should. To ensure you are not making yourself ill, a full clean by a professional team is the best way you can provide this. That is not to say there aren’t things you can do yourself. Did you know that the average keyboard is only second to the office toilets in the amount of dirt and bacteria it contains? A quick turn upside down to bash out all the crumbs and bits of dead skin would help take out the grime. A simple wipe down with a wet-wipe will dramatically reducing the nasty elements that could be making you sick.
Keeping up Appearances
Having a clean and tidy office is not only important for you and your health. It can also really make the difference when you have visitors. Regardless of if you have a home office or a large open plan space, make sure your area is clean to give off the best impression possible. On a daily basis, this is impacts team members, but over time you will no doubt also entertain external visitors who may be making decisions that directly impact you or your company. Keeping your office clean doesn’t take too much effort, but can help reap the rewards when it comes to wowing all those who pass through it.
