How To Go From Messy To Simply Neat

Isn’t it amazing how easy it is to get a place messy! For instance the staff kitchen in many offices seems to get messy in a heartbeat. For communal areas like this to stay clean and tidy all employees will need to play their part. If the dirt and dishes are allowed to pile up the task of cleaning can feel overwhelming. It is best to keep things from getting too messy in the beginning and this article will give you some helpful tips on how to achieve this so that you can go from messy to meat in the shortest amount of time.

Things Do Daily:

Try to put everything back in its place immediately after use. Tidy your desk at the end of everyday so that you can start the next day with a clean and tidy workspace. Your day will also start much better in the morning if it doesn’t look like a hurricane went through your desk. Apply the ‘basket rule’. Put loose stuff in a basket if you cannot put it immediately where they belong and sort it out before you leave work EVERY day.

It can take as little as five minutes to clear surfaces off and create a clutter-free effect. You should also have a designated place for everything in your office and aim to keep everything in its place while it is not in use. Keeping things in the assigned places makes it easier to find them when you need to and it also gives the office a neat and organized appearance.

Remember to clean your computer, phone and other equipment regularly. Throw out your dustbin daily and never throw liquids or food in your office dustbin. Organize and sort your drawers and keep them like that.

Staff Kitchen – to keep the staff kitchen clean everyone who uses it should make an effort not to make it messy. If you use dishes for your lunch, rather than leave them in the sink wash them right away or put them into the dishwashing machine if your office has one.

Office Bathroom – keeping the bathroom in your office clean makes it much more comfortable for you and your coworkers to enjoy. Quickly wipe up any spills and you may make on a visit to the loo and if there is air freshener available (which it should be), be kind and spray some rather than leave any unpleasant scents when you leave.

In General

If your office is to remain clean it needs to be properly cleaned on a regular basis. Some companies have an in-house cleaner who is responsible for this type of cleaning, but it is still a good idea to have cleaning experts come in occasionally to do a thorough cleaning. A cleaner will be able to take care of tasks like routinely emptying the garbage and wiping up spill accidents but for more detailed cleaning like that required for carpets and specialised equipment, professional cleaners are more suited for the job.
