Keep Your Office Clean and Organized to Increase Productivity


Most of us spend a lot of time at our office, maybe even more so than our waking hours at home. Having a clean office space should be just as important as keeping your home clean. A clean workspace results in a clear mind and increased productivity. Here at Cleantec, our business is cleaning, and our professionals know a thing or two about keeping an office space tidy. Here are 9 tips on how to organize and sanitize your desk, straight from our professionals:


Organize paperwork and files, discarding unnecessary clutter. Ask yourself, do I really need this? If you don’t, get rid of it. Create a space for items you are keeping. When everything has a designated space, it is easier to keep your area decluttered.

Disinfect Your Workspace

Computers, keyboards and phones are some of the dirtiest places on your desk. Disinfect them regularly by wiping the surfaces of these tools weekly with a disinfecting wipe.

Cotton Swabs Are Your Friend

A cotton swab allows you to easily get things like dust and crumbs out of those hard to reach areas.

Use Compressed Air for Hard to Reach Spaces

Dusting off your desk can be a hassle. This is especially true if you must move everything to access hard to reach places. A can of compressed air eliminates the hassle and allows access to even the hardest to reach places in seconds.

Organize Your Computer Desktop

A cluttered computer desktop can be just as overwhelming as having a cluttered desk. Organizing important papers and documents into files will relieve this stress while saving you time when looking for specific documents.

Go Digital

Scanning documents and filing them on your computer saves office and desk space. It also reduces the possibility of important documents going missing.


Sorting your work from highest to lowest priority ensures you’re completing all necessary tasks for the day.

Clean Up

Get in the habit of cleaning your desk before you leave work every day. This will help you to start each day fresh, while also preventing clutter pileups!

Get a Trash Can

Having a trash can and recycling bin within close reach is one of the easiest ways to prevent trash from piling up on your desk.
