Whether you realise it or not, a clean office can impact the mentality of your workers and the impression that your business gives to clients. That almost imperceptible difference between a tidy office and a truly clean office can have both a mental and a physical impact on everyone.
For your office workers a properly cleaned space can:
- Help clear their minds, freeing them up to focus on the task at hand
- Reduce illness contracted from grime, mould , and germ build up
- Improve the impression that your business is professional and worthy of respect
- Create a clearer atmosphere to optimize focus and efficiency in performance
Clients will be more impressed with a cleaner office. It just looks and feels more professional when the air is clear and there’s a certain sheen to the place.
That’s not to say that there isn’t a place for a bit or disorganisation or personalisation. In fact messy spaces have been shown to enhance the creative mind (although not the productive mind). However this doesn’t mean dirt and grime needs to be a part of that space. It’s still important to have a clean foundation even with those “messy” spaces.
For that actual aesthetics there is not a one size fits all approach. However when it comes to cleanliness no one needs dirt and grime to undermine their work space.
