The days are getting warmer and, inevitably for the people in large cities, like Leeds, homes and offices are being rearranged in certain ways to accommodate for this. At the office, it’s easy to ignore mess, but when the sunshine starts beaming through the windows and makes all the dust on your desk visible, you may feel the urge to have a good spring clean.
According to one survey carried out by Adecco, 57% of employees said they passed judgement on their co-workers based on the cleanliness of their work area. So, spring cleaning is something you should definitely do if you don’t want your colleagues to think less of you.
More importantly, though, giving your Leeds office a proper clean can bring about a myriad of benefits for yourself.
For example, did you know that there are physical health benefits to spring cleaning? In Leeds and the rest of Yorkshire, there are plenty of allergen and dust mites in the air which cling on to office surfaces – these can take a toll on the respiratory system, but this can be avoided by cleaning and polishing.
Another reason a spring clean should a priority this summer is to increase your productivity at work and reduce your stress levels. How does cleaning achieve this, you ask? Well, organisation of the physical space around you and de-cluttering can make you much more motivated to work and feel happier about it too.
Additionally, cleaning, whether it’s your Leeds-based home or Leeds-based office, has the capacity to release serotonin and endorphins, two of the chemicals in your brain responsible for general well-being and euphoria.
So it clearly shows that completing a good spring clean in the office and keeping on top of it is hugely beneficial.
