You were most likely taught the importance of keeping a clean house at a very young age, but unfortunately most kids never learn the importance of a clean work environment. Contrary to popular belief, a clean work environment is just as important as a clean home environment, which is why commercial cleaning services exist.
However, they shouldn’t have to do it all. While they are trained professionals, there are a few good habits you should get into at the office to ensure they can do their job properly.
Everything has a place, and everything should be in its designated place before the cleaning company arrives. Not only does this create a more organized and productive environment for you while you work, it can take a huge load off of the shoulders of a cleaning company hen they arrive to perform nightly, or even weekly duties.
Keep Restrooms Disinfected
If you or someone else in the office has a cold or some other kind of illness, take extra measures to keep the bathrooms clean and bacteria-free. Keep a small can of disinfectant near the sinks so employees can spray the faucets and knobs in an effort to prevent disease from spreading.
Electronics are often the cornerstone of a workplace. In fact, workers use computers and phones to complete the vast majority of their necessary tasks for the day. It’s incredibly important to keep these items clean on your own, even if some are being cleaned by a janitorial service. Phone mouthpieces should be paid special attention because of their proximity to noses and mouths.
Keep the Break Room Clean
Fortunately, it’s not that difficult to wipe crumbs from the counter or wash the dishes you’ve put in the sink. As long as everyone puts forth their best effort and cleans up after themselves, the nitty-gritty cleaning work should be a breeze for your cleaning services.
Keeping an office clean takes more than just one person. While a cleaning company can do a lot, it’s important that everyone in the office knows to at least do their part in keeping their own personal spaces clean. Continue.
