If you buy beautiful office furniture you need to clean it regularly and keep it in top shape! Even the most stylish of choices is going to age pretty quickly if you leave it fall into a state of disrepair and if you don’t tidy your desk occasionally, how are you supposed to see it under those piles of paperwork?
For that reason, there is a small amount of general desk maintenance every employee should do on a regular basis.
- Clean office desks using a cleaning wipe every few days
- Wipe down the telephone (if you have one) every day with an antibacterial wipe, especially if it is shared
- Clean out your keyboard every few days to get rid of any dust or debris – for this reason, never eat at your desk!
- Leave your desk tidy every evening before you leave work, with no papers left lying around
As you can see, it’s not so hard! Whether you have executive desks or not, it’s vital that they are clean and tidy. This isn’t only from a productivity point of view but also from a health point of view too – nobody wants to sit at a dirty and dusty desk!
Honestly, do you regularly do your desk maintenance?
