Keeping your workplace in a good condition is very important for numerous reasons; if you are in need of some advice, here are 6 office maintenance tips to keep your office running smoothly in a good condition!

  • Look At The Doors In Your Office, Are They Easy To Use? Make sure that all your doors are working and make sure that any confusing doors are appropriately labelled. It could be embarrassing if you invite a client to your meeting room, reach for the door and try to pull it open; only to quickly remember that it is a push door.
  • Don't Ignore Problems, Tackle Them Whilst They Are Small! Small problems might be easy to ignore, but sometimes small problems can turn into bigger problems. Don't allow today's mild annoyances to turn into next week's disaster. Save yourself the hassle and stress; tackle problems when they are small and easier to deal with.
  • Don't Forget To Clean Desk Spaces! When people think of cleaning the office, they think about keeping the toilets clean and making sure that the vacuum cleaner is frequently used in the workplace. However, it is also very important to remember to keep office desks in a clean and tidy condition. Desk clutter can quickly build up. An employee might decide to keep an empty drinks bottle on their desk because they're busy with work and don't want to leave their desk to throw it away, but if they forget to throw it away later; that one bottle could soon become two. As such it could be useful to schedule a day of the week as 'desk tidy day' and ask all employees to make sure that their desks are tidy before they leave work on a specific day of the week.
  • Look At Your Carpets! Are your carpets full of life? Or do they need a bit of a touch up? Keep your office's carpets in a good condition by frequently cleaning your carpets. If your office has a visitor, damaged or dirty carpets could provide a poor first impression of your business; so make sure that you keep them clean and tidy!
  • Think About Your Furniture! Sometimes redesigning the office or refurbishing your workplace isn't necessary. Sometimes all you need is a bit of re-organisation in your office.

    If you re-organise the furniture you could create a much more efficient workspace. Additionally by re-thinking how your office furniture is placed, you could make your office easier to navigate and provide your employees with more room in the workplace.

First Impressions Count, So Make Sure That You Keep Your Office In A Good Condition!
