How a clean office can boost productivity in the workplace

A clean office is a simple but effective way to optimise productivity in the workplace amongst colleagues and employees. A cluttered and unclean work space is one of the biggest causes of workplace stress, often hindering efficiency and a high standard of work. Central Cleaning services, based in Birmingham and the Midlands, can help. With a strong reputation for our high standards of working practice, hygiene and attention to detail, we could be the ones to take away some of the stress in your workplace. But why does clutter mean stress? Read on to learn more and discover how we can help.

Mental Well-being

A cluttered office almost certainly means a cluttered mind. Consequently, less clutter and a clean office space will reduce stress levels in employees. Being surrounded by too much mess can result in people trying to focus on too many things at once. Of course, a more practical benefit is that employees will have more time to focus on work if they are not having to think about cleaning or do the cleaning themselves. A clean working space improves the general mood, creating a happy working environment. Therefore, making employees more committed to producing their best quality work. Tidying the office will tidy the mind, creating a positive and happy work space.

At Central Cleaning, we offer an office cleaning service that we take pride in delivering. We are confident we can help create the right environment for your workplace.


Creating an inviting, clean and bright office space will encourage employees to be eager to work in their surroundings with no distraction, therefore boosting productivity. Working in a clean environment means employees are less likely to get distracted by miscellaneous or unrelated objects that might be cluttering your offices and desk spaces. Being organised is key to keeping up with office-related tasks. A clean work space makes keeping paper work and even computer files organised much easier. Employees are more inclined to want to keep things tidy, making one feel in control of tasks at hand.

Even things like bright, clean windows and tidy floors can have a hugely positive impact on an employee’s mental well-being and creativity at work. We offer a deep and eco-friendly commercial window cleaning service as well as floor cleaning services.

General Health

Whilst a clean space is proven to increase productivity in the office, it’s important to not forget the health benefits to a clean office.

The average employee loses 9 working days per year to sickness. The lack of hygiene in office spaces could be responsible for some of these days away from work. Ensuring your business has an office space that is as clean as it can be, is a worthy investment that you’ll see a return on. A typical office keyboard can carry up to 7,500 bacteria at any given time, this unwanted bacterium could cause illness in employees. Viruses such as the flu can linger on unclean surfaces such as office desks or printing equipment for up to 24 hours.

Keeping your office equipment clean is sometimes overlooked, but necessary to creating a healthy and hygienic working environment. All communal equipment such as printers and photocopiers, along with desks and floors, should be sanitised regularly and cleaned and maintained to reduce breakages. Thus, ensuring productivity can continue to thrive.

We offer a thorough equipment cleaning service that will leave you feeling confident that there is as little bacteria as possible lingering on your equipment. Making a healthy and happy office more obtainable for you.
