TOP TIPS TO MAINTAINING A CLEAN OFFICE

At Mint Office Cleaning Services, we look after all of your office cleaning needs.

But you can also help to maintain the cleanliness of your office by following some very simple steps…

MAKING SURE YOU WASH YOUR HANDS

All staff should realise how important it is that their hands are washed regularly as bacteria and germs can be spread like wildfire otherwise. We are touching door handles, phones and keyboards and then touching our faces or handling food.

The majority of germs are passed through touch, so maybe a good idea would be to have an automatic soap dispenser as you would see in hospitals or kitchens. This will vastly improve hygiene and cleanliness in the office.

HAVING A CLUTTER-FREE DESK

If you are working in a clutter-free environment, you are more likely to work more productively. Not only that, but it will reduce the amount of dust and germs in the surrounding area.

Nothing is more important than our health, and small things like tidying your desk could reduce the risk of infection being spread in the workplace.

EMPTYING BINS DAILY

Nobody wants a full rubbish bin beside their desk, so they should be emptied every day. If you are throwing food waste in your bin it can start to smell, and this makes the office unpleasant for everyone.

This will also create a build-up of germs and bacteria in the workplace, so waste bins should be replaced daily. A pleasant and odour free office is a much better place to work in and it is also welcoming for visitors and potential clients.

NOT EATING AT YOUR DESK IF POSSIBLE

This is something that you may be unable to avoid at times, as we know how busy you can get in the office and also it is really convenient to eat at your desk. If you can get away from your desk for your break, you will feel refreshed when you return and also your desk will be clean and free from crumbs and mess.

If you are going to eat at your desk, you should have disinfectant wipes as crumbs can go in between the keys of your keyboard and you may have greasy hands when typing, so germs are just constantly being spread.

Overall, good housekeeping can go a long way in the workplace – and it benefits not only you but everyone in the office.
