As you spend a lot of time in your workplace, anything that can be done to improve the space is always a good idea. Keeping your workspace and other places in the business clean and tidy will give the overall impression of the company a boost, as well as help you feel more productive and happy.
A commercial cleaning company can make sure the workplace is professionally clean but there are also some things you can do to keep things spick and span.
Tidy your desk at the end of each day
Coffee mugs, food wrappers from that hurried lunch at your desk and the daily build-up of paperwork can make your desk look disorganised. Get into the habit of spending 5 minutes at the end of each day to declutter and organise your desk ready for the next day. Remove dirty mugs, put all rubbish in the bin and tidy up or file any paperwork away. This will help you start each day with a clear desk and will help prevent dust and germs building up on the desk surfaces.
Have a designated area for eating
It may seem like having employees eating lunch at a desk each day gets more work done, but it can have the opposite effect. Designate a room for staff to eat their lunch and make sure staff use it. Taking a proper break away from the workspace will help people to come back for the afternoons work refreshed and ready to go. This also prevents food crumbs and other debris from building up on desks, in keyboards and other business machinery.
Practice workplace kitchen etiquette
If there is a kitchen area for employees to use, encourage everyone to use it responsibly. If you make a cuppa in the kitchen clean any spills from the counter tops or floors. Use the fridge for food you intend to eat each day. With lots of people in the same place, space could be limited so don’t hog it all with a weeks worth of food. Any appliances should be left how you found them or better. Wipe the microwave down after using it or empty crumbs out of the toaster ready for the next person to use it.
Wash your hands regularly
Germs and diseases spread easily and simply washing your hands will help prevent spreading germs around the workplace. You can keep hand sanitiser on your desk or in the bathroom to quickly clean your hands before eating or after using the bathroom.
These simple steps can help keep your workplace tidy throughout the day. A professional cleaning company will make sure that the office, factory or any other type of workspace is cleaned properly. Ace Cleaning can offer services to meet your requirements and tailor them to suit your company.
