Cleaning Your Office in the Most Effective Way - Blog and News for Augie's Building Services - banner-2-something

The condition of your office is a good indicator of how you do business. Now, how would you like to be perceived by your boss or by your clients? Do you want them to have the opinion that you're cluttered and disorganized? Of course not! If a client were to see your work area, you want them to get the opinion that you’re structured and know where everything is. Here at Augie’s Janitorial Services, we know that work can get hectic and that keeping your office clean isn’t your top priority, but by taking a little time and doing some simple cleaning tricks, it’s incredibly easy to keep it clean. In this blog post, we’ll provide you with a few tips that we’ve found work best. And if you want your office/building to be at the next level of clean, then don’t hesitate to contact us today for our commercial cleaning services in Detroit!

Decide On the Most Important Things to Clean

Take a step back from your desk and really analyze the room. Each office is unique and has its own things that get dirty quick or are more necessary to keep clean for the general appearance of the room. Do you have windows in your office? When was the last time you cleaned your screen and got the dirt and debris out of your keyboard? We recommend taking the time to write out what needs to be cleaned in your workspace and keep it in a safe spot.

Declutter

We’ve spoken about this before, but clutter is not a good thing at the office. You don’t want to be flipping through pages like a mad man trying to find an important document that has gotten lost in the piles of paperwork that you have on your desk. Knowing where everything is is incredibly beneficial to you. Not only will it cause you less stress but it will also help you to be a more efficient worker. You’ll notice a world of difference when you organize everything in your work area. Cleaning Your Office in the Most Effective Way - Blog and News for Augie's Building Services - cta5-5beb4281c7bfd

Be Prepared

We highly recommend having cleaning supplies near your desk. Messes can happen out of nowhere and you want to be ready at a moment’s notice. All-purpose cleaners, glass cleaners, stain removers, disinfectants, and the like are very helpful to have around you. And with them being so accessible it’s likely that you’ll remind yourself to clean more often than you do when they’re all the way down the hallway or locked up in the janitor’s closet.

Put It On Your Schedule

The main thing that you want to keep in mind is that it’s not a one and done thing. You have to stay active with your cleaning duties at the office. Make sure to put it on your daily schedule to do a bit of cleaning every day. Even five minutes will make a huge difference! If you’re a morning person, take a few minutes when you get to your office to pick up and wipe down surfaces. If you’re not a morning person, just do it at the end of the day and walk into a clean office the following morning! You just want to be sure to make yourself do it.
