Most people don’t enjoy waking up at the crack of dawn and going into their office to start a busy day of work. Getting up and going into a dirty office is even worse, since sitting in an untidy environment makes few people feel good. The best way to make the most out of your work day and your office is to make sure that you keep it tidy. Apart from the cleaner who may go in every morning and clean it up a bit for you, you can also do things to keep your office in tip-top condition.

 Stay organised

One of the best ways to stay organised is to have things which will help you to stay organised. For example, have a box for your pens and pencils. Have a filing cabinet with different drawers and sections for different things. On your desk, have storage compartments and filing space where you can put things.


When you choose a desk, choose one which is large enough for your computer and other things but also one which has drawers underneath and even more storage space. This is particularly helpful if you have a small office without much room, since you’re able to make the most out of the little room that you do have.

Organise a huge annual clean

You can do this either annually or semi-annually. It doesn’t need to be done too often as long as you stay on top of everything. This big clean is where you completely clean your office from top to bottom. This could include things such as hiring a carpet cleaning Scarborough company or changing your chair and desk.

This is something that you can look forward to since your office will feel so clean and fresh afterwards that you will love walking into it. It’s also a great way to impress any clients or colleagues who come into your office, since a dirty office never looks good.

Have hand sanitiser available

It’s a sign of a hygienic work place if there is hand sanitiser readily available. You can offer this to anybody who comes into your office, or simply have a pump on the wall where they can get it themselves quite easily. You should use this regularly, since it will stop the spreading of more germs and will also make you feel clean throughout the day. You may also like to use quality air fresheners on your furniture and in the office. This will not only make it smell nice, but in many cases, it actually helps to get rid of the dirt and dust and prevent more from building up.
