Are you feeling overwhelmed at work? Stressed out? Tense and unable to focus?

If so, a dirty office environment may be to blame. Clutter and mess may contribute to many negative feelings of health and well-being, including depression. However, a good thorough cleaning enables you and your employees to feel in control of their environment.

No one wants a dirty workplace, so you may be tempted to try and clean it yourself. But if you don’t hire a professional cleaning service, you’re likely to make these office cleaning mistakes.

Rushing the Job

One of the more common office cleaning mistakes is rushing through the job. Rushing through a cleaning job is a guaranteed way to miss areas and leave behind blind spots. Over time, this is a great way to accumulate dirt and dust, which won’t be revealed until whenever you discover these hidden messes, which could take days, weeks, or even months.

Plus, if your office also serves as a space where you host clients or customers, the last thing you want is for your visitors to discover your hidden messes. There’s no quicker way to ruin a first impression than by visitors seeing dirt, so make sure you have a sanitary office.

Not Hiring a Professional Cleaning Service

If you’re a small business and you’re trying to save money, it’s tempting to try and do everything yourself, including cleaning. However, it’s always better to hire a professional cleaning service. 

Don’t waste your time trying to do your office cleaning first thing in the morning. Don’t stay late after hours touching up the place. Hiring a regular cleaning service frees up your valuable time for more important tasks like actually running your business.

Your business needs all the attention you can give it, especially since only 78.5% of businesses survive their first year. Don’t be a statistic, spend your time building and growing your business instead of weekly cleaning.

Using Harsh Chemicals

Many cleaners may use harsh chemicals. While they can be effective, they can also have negative side effects.

For one, your employees may have allergies or sensitive skin issues. If they come into contact with any residual chemicals left behind on surfaces such as desks and counters, they could suffer from health issues such as skin irritation and other adverse effects. 

Often these cleaning chemicals aren’t very environmentally friendly either. Opt for a cleaning service that understands your employees’ well-being and how commercial cleaning affects their health.
