What 4 things can you do to keep your office clean this winter?

Even though it may be a more difficult task in the winter months, as the air seems to bring in more dirt in the cold weather, we looked at just what you should do in order to keep up appearances for your company, ensuring that your business stays professional and clean throughout the winter months. So, just what should you be doing in order to ensure the cleanliness of your office this winter? Find out in our latest blog!

Plan your office out neatly

When you think about having a clean office, maybe one of the last things to come to mind would be the overall layout of your workspace. Imagine walking into your office for the first time as a prospective client, would you be impressed? If you can honestly answer yes, then you can just this completely and go onto our other 3 tips, but if the answer is no, it’s best to take our advice and switch it up. Your workspace should only please the client in an aesthetic sense, but it should be decorated according to your business.

Tidy up your tech

It’s not common for technology to take the main stage in pretty much all offices over the world today, as many businesses are reliant on the internet in order to conduct their work through an online presence. It’s down to you to keep your technology in tip-top shape, and whilst you sometimes can’t help the breakdown of the PC that’s caused by internal problems, it’s your responsibility to keep it clean on the outside, as this will help you keep your PC equipment in a healthy condition. Be sure any lose cables are tucked away, minimising risks of hurting staff and giving off a clean, well-presented vibe to clients.

Is your stationery organised?

Organising stationary may seem like a small task, but it’s one of the best you can do in terms of achieving a clean office. When you’re busy, it’s hard to imagine prioritising the organisation of your stationery, but you must put yourselves in the shoes of a client who may be visiting. It gives off an air of untidiness and lack of professionalism as you struggle to keep your workplace tidy. The easiest way of tackling this problem is to invest in trays, filing cabinets and folders, all to store your stationery and paperwork.

Clean, clean, clean

As this is the most obvious point we have to offer, we’ll keep this one short and sweet. You should aim to keep your office clean at all times, especially throughout the winter. The weather that winter brings can cause your office to be dirtier, due to the mud, rain, sleet and snow being brought into the office by your employees. Try to keep your cleaning regime a regular thing: set aside an hour or two every week to get your office cleaned and ready to go. Nobody wants to see dust covered folder or bins filled with food: take care of your office and it’ll return the favour tenfold.
