How to Avoid Office Clutter

A clean office is vital to running any good business. An organized workspace environment improves productivity, creativity, focus and ensures happy, healthy workers. A clean office also helps maintain your business’ reputation because clients and other guests who stop by can see that your business is efficient and cares about its employees. Use our essential office cleaning guide to make sure you never have a cluttered office again.

Keep Stocked with Office Cleaning Essentials

Always make sure your office is fully stocked with essential office cleaning items. If your office is missing any of these items, it may be time to make a quick trip to the store.

  • Broom and dustpan
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Dusting spray, dust swiffers
  • Glass cleaner
  • Microfiber wipes
  • Trash bags
  • Paper towels
  • Air freshener
  • Sponge, scrubbers, and magic erasers
  • Toilet bowl cleaner and brush
  • Plunger

Put Everything Where It Belongs

Everything in your office should have its own place. Leaving office supplies and documents around willy-nilly makes your office space cluttered and uncomfortable. Practicing good labeling and storage habits will also help your employees to remember where things are located. Remember, reducing office clutter means reducing office stress.

Get Rid of Stuff You Don’t Need

Avoiding office clutter is all about doing more with less. Limit the amount of items you allow on your desk. Take a good look at everything you have in your office and ask yourself, when was the last time I used that? Remove any and all nonessential items. If it’s not something you use frequently try to keep it in a labeled storage area. Keeping a minimalist work environment reduces visual and physical distractions.

Clean Up Messes Immediately

Don’t let office messes fester. Spills and and other messes should be cleaned immediately to avoid stains and potential damage to your office furniture. Vacuum and take out the trash frequently. Make sure any expired food in your break room refrigerator is thrown away. Leaving food out unattended can cause your office bug problems that nobody wants.

Imagine yourself as the client in somebody else’s office. Would you be happy with their tidiness? Don’t let office clutter get in the way of running a successful business.
