Anyone else’s desk look like this?
You’re probably not alone. This is the typical working desk.
According to the Workplace Organisation Survey, 41% of employees in the UK believe that a tidy and organised workspace is key to enhancing productivity, 49% said an untidy workspace affects how they feel about going into work each day and 73% of managers perceive those with an untidy workspace as being disorganised.
A clean and organised workspace is beneficial for your mental health. When your desk and office area are clean and clutter free, it makes you feel good. These feelings of happiness will contribute to better morale, increased productivity, and can even have a contagious effect on your staff.
And then there’s all the gremlins lying beneath the surface that you can’t see! We’re talking about the 3,295 germs embedded into your keyboard (thank you sandwich), the 25,127 nasties found on a standard office phone, and the 20,961 germs harboured on the average desktop.
Dirty desks put two thirds of office workers at risk of sickness. Ignoring the mess and foregoing a cleaning regime encourages bugs such as Helicobacter pylori, Staphylococcus aureus, E-coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa to breed.
Whilst famous cleaning influencers like Mrs Hinch might be proud of you for tidying your desk, why not go that extra mile for your staff and seek help from Techclean, the UK’s leading specialist cleaners of desktop IT.

Something as simple as cleaning can dramatically impact the performance and longevity of devices, boost staff morale and reduce staff sickness. Need we say more?
