Ways to Avoid a Messy Office

Ways to Avoid a Messy Office

Work can be stressful, and having an unorganized office space can add even more stress to your day.

It can also waste time. Studies show that the average office employee spends six weeks per year looking for something.

Here are some tips to save time, alleviate that stress, and help clean your office.

Avoid eating in your office. Eating at your desk can add crumbs and increase chances of spills. It also adds trash in your office that may leave a smell for the rest of the day. An alternative to eating in your office is eating in the break room or treating yourself to lunch out.

Create a paper system. Most office clutter comes from paper buildup. Create a place that holds all of your papers in an order that works for you. Having a system also keeps the clutter to a minimum.

Disinfect your office. Disinfect your office by wiping down your desk, keyboard, door knobs, and other items that are prone to bacteria. Make this a habit once a week, for example, on Fridays before leaving. This will be especially important during flu season.

Use hooks for personal items. Personal items can take up a lot of space, use hooks for outerwear, purses, bags, umbrellas, and other items. This way your personal items won’t pile up in your office.

Rearrange your office. Items that are not used often can be stored on shelves, while items that are used often can be kept close.

After cleaning your office, why not come home to a clean place, too? Let The Cleaning Authority do the rest of the cleaning for you at home! Visit us today for a free online estimate.
