How a Clean Office makes Happy, Healthy employees

Your office environment will have a great effect upon the people working in it, having repercussions for health, well-being, productivity and morale.

With employees spending a large proportion of their day within their workplaces, it is important that steps are taken to make this environment as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Workplace cleanliness is a factor which has a significant influence on the office atmosphere, so let’s take a look at how this can have an impact, for bad or good.



Don’t underestimate the effect of morale on employee performance. If workers feel happy and motivated then they are likely to perform better and have a higher output of quality work. By providing a workspace which is clean, tidy and organised, you can ensure that the physical work environment is a positive and pleasant place your employees like to be in. Conversely, if you let your office become cluttered and unclean, this can be a mood depressor and cause a stressful and distracting environment.

To help keep morale up and your workplace looking attractive and professional, keep surfaces dusted, clean and free from clutter, upholstery fresh and floors spick and span.



As mentioned above, messy and dirty spaces can really bring down a space. In terms of productivity, uncleanliness has a twofold negative effect: time can be wasted sifting through clutter to find relevant work and focus can be impaired by the subpar surroundings. Research has found that messy, dirty surroundings can hamper your focus by drawing your attention away from the task at hand – not something you want your employees to be experiencing. A clean environment is, therefore, not only attractive but also conducive to efficient working practices.

Encourage your workers to keep their workstations tidy and ensure the whole office space is kept fresh with regular cleaning, from disinfecting the kitchens and bathrooms to dusting surfaces.



Allergies can be a nuisance, but did you know an unclean workplace could be making them worse? Dust, mites and allergens can build up in offices which aren’t cleaned properly or regularly and, as a result, could exacerbate your employees’ allergic reactions. From asthma to hayfever, allergy sufferers will appreciate a clean workplace where they can work uninterrupted by symptoms.

Carpets can harbour a lot of allergens and irritants so thorough carpet cleaning, using professional equipment, will make sure your workplace isn’t unpleasant for allergy sufferers. General upkeep, such as dusting and vacuuming, will also help.


Sick days

If your office isn’t cleaned regularly or effectively enough, you run the risk of germs and bacteria being left to linger. With workers in close proximity, equipment being shared and communal kitchens and bathrooms being used, without thorough cleaning germs and illness can easily be spread around the office. This can end up costing your business money through preventable sick days being taken.

Ensure your office is regularly disinfected using effective products and equipment. Pay particular attention to communal areas like breakout spaces, kitchens and bathrooms. Steam cleaners can be a great way to sterilise such areas and antibacterial products are useful for desk areas.
