Organization for a Clean Office Space

There is a difference between a messy office space and a dirty office space. A messy office usually means a disorganized, cluttered working space. A dirty office means your space is unclean and unhealthy, with germs and bacteria present. While these two types of offices are not necessarily the same, a messy office could potentially lead to a dirty office.

Here are some ways to help keep your office space organized in order to prevent a dirty office;

  • Purge- Go through your entire office space and clear out any items you no longer need. Old files should be shredded and office materials should only be kept at a minimum. If there is an item or supply in your space that hasn’t been used in the past six months, toss it or donate it.
  • Zone- Create zones within your office space to determine where materials and supplies should be placed. This will help prevent papers and other supplies from piling up, causing clutter.
  • Label- Piles of papers are one of the major signs of a messy office. The longer the piles sit, the more likely your office will soon become a dirty office. Based on the type of work you do, label where certain papers need to go.
  • Close- The surface of your desk can harbor plenty of germs, so it’s best to keep your space as clear as possible. Determine what items you use the most on a daily basis, like your phone and computer, and keep them out on your desk. All other materials and supplies should be stored away until they are needed.
