Office cleaning tips for Christmas

December 19th, 2014 Category: Commercial

Many businesses will be incredibly busy over the next few weeks, with staff taking time off for Christmas and New Year, and firms will  trying to complete projects in time for clients.

However, one thing that can create major obstacles for businesses is a disorganised or cluttered work environment.

If your workplace does not facilitate efficiency at a time when many staff members will be under the most pressure, this could result in important documents disappearing, accidents, and increased stress all around.

Furthermore, there have been a number of studies published in the past which have highlighted the link between productivity and a clean work space.

After all, when staff members are able to work in a place that is pleasant, tidy and organised, they are likely to be much more motivated and engaged with the work process.

Cleanliness is also linked to enhanced well-being and productivity, so investing some of your resources into improving the office environment can help to reduce absenteeism in the long term and boost morale.

Therefore, it is definitely worth ensuring that your office is in the best condition it can be.

With that in mind, we have included some hints and tips below on how you can get your office tidied in no time at all.

Professional cleaners

Most businesses do not have the time or resources to allocate to cleaning, especially in the run-up to busy periods, such as Christmas.

This is where professional cleaners come in. Rather than staff members having to take time out of their schedule to tidy up, it is much easier and cost-effective to get in experienced and skilled cleaning staff to do this for you.

Costs are affordable and highly reasonable anyway, however, you will also make additional cost savings from the increased productivity that will come about as a result.


It can sometimes be very difficult for firms to organise their paperwork effectively. Therefore, one way to help cut down on mess accumulating in the office is to put in place an effective filing system.

It may mean that you have to consider buying extra cupboards or desk organisers, but by taking this step alone, it can dramatically help to cut down on rubbish building up.


Not only is this much a good habit to get into, it can significantly help to boost the green credentials of your firm, and provides an easy way to get rid of excess paperwork.

Just be sure that all staff members are aware of where and how to recycle papers. Recycling bins should be clearly labelled with instructions left to the cleaners on when to put it all out for collection.

Empty bins

Ensure that the bins are emptied on a regular basis, particularly if you notice it building up during the day.

If you have a particularly high amount of rubbish piling up, then you may need to increase the frequency of your cleaning schedule.
