Office spring cleaning can help improve your employees performance at work and the company’s reputation with customers, partners, and employees. It is a well known fact that neat and tidy office increases productivity and in addition it will keep your office free of germs and encourage less employee absenteeism. Giving your office a good cleaning on a continual basis will help boost productivity and improve the office ambiance and in turn attract the best customers and employees. The following are the top things companies can do to keep offices clean…
Clean The Phones
The more buttons, the more areas for gunk to build up! The phone is designed to sit right by your face it can become filled with a lot of undesirable microscopic bits and pieces. To keep phones clean, we use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol and swab the area around the button, the receiver and the mouthpiece. Then, we spray a microfiber cloth with disinfectant, and wipe the entire phone down including the body and the entire receiver. phones are a cesspool of germs.
Get Rid of That Smell
No one enjoys a smelly carpet! Though, we can’t avoid the accidents that could make the carpet stink we can regularly clean the carpets. Working in an environment that doesn’t smell good is a factor that declines worker morale. Cleaning and shampooing your carpets will guarantee this problem is corrected.
Keep Desks Dust Free
With the average American working at least eight hours a day, your office may seem like a second home. That’s why for employees with allergies and asthma, it’s important to that their offices are as clean and allergen-free as their own homes. Dust carries many allergies which cause a lot of people to get sick. Dusting your commercial space, as well as all the desks, is very important.
Sweep That Floor
A clean workplace means more than just having a sparkling, fresh building. A clean workplace also ensures the safety and health of employees and visitors. Working in an office space that is cluttered or dirty does not help increase productivity. It is also something that may turn off prospect customers. Sweeping and cleaning floors is imperative to having a clean office.
Empty the Trash
Emptying the trash daily is very important when it comes to maintaining the productivity in an office. Full trash cans of snack and lunch wrappers and empty coffee cups can attract little critters and bad smells. An employee working in an area that smells like a garbage bin won’t be as focused and productive as one working in an office with fresh air. Not to mention these little critters carry contaminants that may make you and your employees sick.
Keep a Clean Office Kitchen
There’s a bunch of things in the office kitchen that should be brought to your attention. Unlike the items in your home kitchen, all of the items in the office kitchen are communal and that means they are used by everyone. The faucet, the coffee maker, the microwave, the water cooler, the fridge, even the vending machines and the water fountains – they all get touched by employees in your office. Make sure they are all washed and cleaned at least once each week.
Don’t Forget Doors
Doors are some of the most touched and used surfaces attached to a commercial building. Because they are such a high traffic area, they are prone to bacteria and viruses that could be easily spread between everyone in the office. It is very important to make cleaning the doors in your office a priority. Have a professional spray the right solution on the surface of the door and then wipe it off with a clean cloth. Do not forget the top edge of the door frame and especially the doorknob.
