If you want to get work done, a fresh environment is a great place to start. Research from Arizona University found 82% of workers claim they would work harder in a cleaner environment, such as a clean office. You’ll be surprised how fast the investment in a professional cleaning service will pay for itself.

Maintaining a Clean Office

If you entertain clients or customers at your office, you understand the value of first impressions. The state of your office directly reflects the quality of your business. Not only that, but it can be difficult to get any work in a messy environment. A clean space will save you a lot of time, and also some headaches.

A Clean Office Means a Clean Mind

We are all creatures of habit, and forming good habits can be a lot of work. Researchers have found it takes 22 days on average to form a new habit, but that is time well spent. A recent study published in Time found a correlation between clean houses and healthy people, and we have to imagine that carries over to the office. The average American works about 1,700 hours a year, so why not make those the best hours possible? Most of the time, symptoms of allergies can be attributed to an unclean space, too. And we won’t even go into germs.

The Joy of Organization

A well-organized desk reflects a well-organized mind. It goes without saying that it’s much easier to find things if they’re organized. A clean office also means you can avoid the dangers of clutter, such as feelings of helplessness, loss of control, and general fatigue. A UCLA study found a connection between clutter and depression. With a little bit of elbow grease, we can eliminate clutter in no time. Paper clutter is the most prominent in workplaces. Simply putting them in piles does not eliminate clutter, so look to use those filing cabinets. Check out this list for some clever tricks to eliminate some of the other most annoying types of clutter.
