The Health Benefits of a Clean Workspace

July 18, 2018, Author: Park Ave Cleaning

When you wander through your office, do you spot some desks that are neatly organized and others that seem to be covered in the manuscript of War and Peace (plus about a month’s worth of Starbucks cups)? Some people believe that, as long as they know where everything is, having a cluttered workspace doesn’t matter. However, that isn’t really the case! A clean workspace doesn’t just help you get to work more quickly; it also benefits your health.

Mess = Stress

Mental health plays a big role in how productive you are and how you feel when you’re hard at work. A messy and dirty workspace will raise your stress levels, whether or not you realize it. When you have to spend extra time searching for something, or the stack of papers on top of your desk is always seconds from toppling over, it creates a tense and uncomfortable atmosphere. A neat, tidy desk area will take away distractions and let you stay focused on the task at hand instead of your mess.

Protect Your Health

Do you know why some “office bugs” linger so long? No, it’s not just because of the forced air flowing through the facility and potentially distributing the germs. It’s also often because of a dirty work environment, with communal surfaces that aren’t cleaned often enough. Keyboards, appliances, trash cans and door handles all harbor tons of dangerous bacteria that can harm your health. If you don’t take the time to clean your workspace and office (or hire a professional to do it), you’re putting your health at risk. The reason that cold keeps circulating week after week might lie on the refrigerator door handle!

Many workers also don’t realize that leaving food trash behind, like wrappers and empty cups, can also attract rodents and vermin that are harmful to employee health and safety. A clean workspace keeps pests away and saves you money on your pest control bill.

Better Air Quality

Since we now spend the majority of our time indoors instead of outdoors, indoor air quality really matters. Dusty and dirty surfaces create air quality issues that can affect your health and aggravate allergies or asthma in affected employees. We use cleaning products that are safe for your employees, so you don’t need to worry about harsh chemicals making the air quality even worse than it was before.
