4 Reasons Your Office Desk Should Undergo a Spring Cleaning
Cleaning your desk has been on your to-do list for several weeks. But inevitably, the task keeps getting pushed to the next day… and the next day. You might even be having a hard time justifying making time to do it.
And now that the warmer weather is just around the corner, this isn’t going to be the first time you’ve heard the phrase “spring cleaning”—driving the reminder and stress even more into you that you should really give your desk a spring clean as well.
So what are some reasons that might motivate you to finally make it happen? We’ve compiled four reasons that might surprise you as to why it’s crucial for you to have a clean and organized working space.
- Sensitive or private documents are far safer in a filing drawer at your desk, rather than scattered around your desk for anyone to see.
- Studies show the average worker wastes approximately 4.3 hours per week searching for papers or documents—whether that’s due to a messy desk or a disorganized filing system on their computer.
- You might be able to check off your task list a lot faster with an organized desk. In fact, have you ever heard the phrase “mess creates stress”?
- Have you been battling the flu or more colds this season than normal? The bacteria could be coming from your cluttered desk or the most touched areas on your desk.
