Keeping your workspace clean doesn’t just make you look good to your coworkers and supervisors; it promotes better productivity and focus. Of course, there is always going to be times when your papers, files, and sticky notes start to cover your desk completely. Trying to find the time to clean and stay tidy with your busy schedule can be a real headache, but, with a little help from your friends at Steemer of South Florida, we can help you achieve a clean workplace for good.
Have you ever heard the phrase, “the bigger the mess the bigger the stress”? A messy workplace is not only unappealing, but it can actually ruin your overall productivity and efficiency and create a stressful work environment on a day-to-day basis. With that said, a clean office space reduces stress, allowing you to keep a productive mindset to achieve a more efficient workflow.
Furthermore, when you keep a clean and tidy workspace it promotes a better view of your organization and your overall character to everyone else in the company, especially your boss. A messy desk and lack of organization reflects poorly on yourself and may discredit your attention to detail and other factors that employers expect out of employees. It’s even more important in positions where one is expected to oversee clients or facilitate day-to-day operations so that you can continue to be productive.
Aside from the numerous emotional and social factors, another perk of a clean work place or office is that it can reduce your risk of catching the seasonal cold. In an office environment where a lot of items and space is shared, bacteria can accumulate and contaminate surfaces that aren’t regularly cleaned. Take this statistic for example: the average office keyboard houses more than 7,500 bacteria on it. It’s easy to see how pathogens can be spread around.
Often, we’re either at home or in the office. It’s important to keep these two areas at their healthiest- meaning their cleanest. If you’re office could use the help of professionals, call Steemer of South Florida today!
