10 Reasons Why a Clean Workplace is a Successful Workplace

We’ve all heard the saying ‘a clean home is a happy home’ – well, the same goes for your workplace. Having a clean working environment leads to less stress and anxiety, and can actually improve physical and emotional health leading to fewer days being taken off sick.

At Lawrence Cleaning we work with dozens of businesses that know having a clean workplace
leads to a successful business. One of these is the prestigious and professional solicitors Talbots
Law, and we are thrilled to have recently started cleaning six of their offices in Codsall,
Wolverhampton, Kidderminster, Stourbridge, Halesowen and Worcester.

Maintaining a clean and organised workplace has many benefits that can contribute to the success
of your business.

In this blog, we explore 10 reasons why a clean workplace leads to a successful workplace.
Have you ever taken a moment to look around your workspace and realised it could do with a good
clean? As much as we may try to ignore it, a cluttered and dirty workplace can harm a business’s
productivity and success.

No one wants to go into the office on a Monday morning and still see the coffee stains and crumbs
on their desk from the previous week. Dirty footprints walked in from a factory are never a good
look and gathering dust can cause health problems.

So, why not make 2024 the year you commit to a professional cleaning regime, whether it be for an
office, factory or public sector building? At Lawrence Cleaning we work with businesses and
organisations ranging from schools and doctors surgeries to train stations and factories. We are
trusted to keep workplaces across the West Midlands clean and fresh.

Here we look at 10 reasons why a clean workplace leads to a successful business:

1. Boosts Employee Retention

A clean workspace can help employees feel more motivated and positive. This, in turn, can lead to

A cluttered and dirty workplace can create feelings of stress and anxiety. Clean work areas promote
a sense of calm and order, which can reduce stress levels in employees.

number of sick days employees take, leading to increased productivity and less disruption in the

Messy workplaces can pose safety hazards, such as tripping hazards and fire hazards. A clean and
organised workplace promotes safety and reduces the risk of accidents.

6. Enhances Customer Impressions

A clean and presentable workspace creates a positive impression on customers and clients. This can
lead to increased customer loyalty and new business opportunities.

7. Increases Employee Accountability

Maintaining a clean work environment will promote a sense of responsibility and accountability
among staff. This should lead to a more efficient and productive workplace.

8. Improves Equipment Longevity

Cleanliness at work helps to keep equipment running smoothly and extends the life of office
machinery, such as computers, printers and copiers.

9. Promotes Teamwork

Looking after your workspace promotes teamwork and collaboration among employees. This can
lead to increased creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills.

10. Saves Time and Money

A clean workplace can save businesses time and money in the long run. With fewer distractions and
accidents, productivity is increased, and the risk of costly legal action and fines is reduced.

So why put up with the same cobwebs and spilt coffee stains that have been there for years? To
some, a clean workplace may seem like a small detail, but its impact on workplace success cannot be
