Keep it Clean in the Office


Keeping your office or work environment clean is not only important because it creates the right impression of you as a professional business person, but also because a clean place to work can boost your productivity and make it easier for you to complete daily tasks without being distracted or unable to find the tools you need to get things done.

With that in mind, here are some simple tips to help you keep your office as clean as possible:

Declutter Your Desk

If you do nothing else on this list, you should certainly take the time to declutter your desk. A lot of people would have you believe that a messy desk is an indicator of creativity, but for most people, the truth is much different and having a desk that is piled high with papers, old coffee cups, and various other discarded items will only distract you from the task at hand, make your mind more cluttered and breed germs and bacteria that could take you out of the game. The only things that you should ever keep on your desk are the things you need to complete your work that day, and nothing else.

Don’t Eat at Your Desk

One thing that will really help to keep your office environment clean is eating away from your desk. When you eat at your desk, you get crumbs on the desk, crumbs on your keyboard, crumbs on the carpet and it can make your workstation look unsightly, to say the least. So. stick to the canteen, or go out for lunch instead.

Wipe Down Your Tech

The tech you use every day can get very grubby very quickly. Not only can the things you use daily, such as your keyboard start to look grubby and discolored very quickly, but they can also become breeding grounds for bacteria, which is why you should use wipes to clean them down and compressed air, like the stuff at to remove embedded dirt on a daily basis for the former and a weekly basis for the latter. It will make a surprisingly huge difference!

Install Recycle Bins

Installing recycling bins for paper, printer cartridges, plastic and any other rubbish that can be recycled will help you keep the office clean and help the environment. Hiring a rubbish removal company, like the one at, top regularly empty them and safely dispose of your trash is also essential if you don’t want it to build up and make the office look messy. They will also be able to get rid of any non-recyclable rubbish responsibly and in conjunction with a good cleaning company, will work wonders to keep your office environment clean and tidy.

Doing just these simple things will ensure that your office is always clean, hygienic, and most importantly of all, presentable.
