Office Cleaning Services Whangarei: Why a Clean Office is Important?

Office Cleaning Services Whangarei: Why a Clean Office is Important?

In an office setting, no matter how organised you are within your own workspace, you’ll be lumped together with a mixed bag of people who may not share the same level of cleanliness as you do.  

Some don’t even tidy up their own desks. These are the type of co-workers that leave candy wrappers, spoiled food and used coffee mugs on their table. And even if you call them out on it, trying to get them to clean up their space can be a real challenge. And it can be incredibly frustrating for anyone trying to get the whole office clean, ready for a client visit.

There are many possible reasons why some workers choose not to clean their desks, so before you start calling staff in for a meeting consider that they are very likely just trying to prioritise work.

Whatever the reason, accumulated mess makes your office an unpleasant working environment.

Unhygienic offices can lower productivity. It can also negatively impact employee health in the long run. It can cause an increase in sick days with most employees missing important deadlines. Though this may be hard to quantify, a messy office environment can result in losses for the company. It can also leave a bad impression to clients who may happen to drop by for a meeting.

If you think you have this problem, there are better ways to help you manage your office and keep it clean for everyone.

Evaluate the messy areas.

Assess how much cleaning needs to be done and what kind? Is it a full-on spring cleaning? Or a CDC-inspired Hazmat clean-up? Are there really bad smells that deodorizers can no longer mask?

Identify these common messy areas.

Areas where office workers tend to get together such as the shared kitchen, the break room, and conference rooms, often turn out be the filthiest. It’s fine to send out a memo to everyone to keep common areas clean as a courtesy to other employees. This should come as second nature, right? But some people just need to be told.

Ask help from co-workers who are also neat freaks.

Pardon the term,but being an obsessively neat person can be a positive thing in a messy office. You need allies, and those who have a penchant for order and neatness can help you motivate other people to start cleaning up.

Hire a reliable office cleaning service.

When all else fails, ask upper management to cover the cost of a worthwhile office clean-up. This is the best solution. It's less divisive, and more importantly, the cleaning is done thoroughly and professionally.
