In addition to keeping a healthy environment for yourself and your employees, one of the goals of keeping a clean work space is to ensure you can increase revenue. Whether that’s through clients and customers being impressed by your space or employees being able to work more efficiently because they’re not surrounded by mess, businesses should see a direct impact from keeping a clean work space. With that said, it’s important to know when the best times are to clean without disrupting your business.

Best Times to Clean without Disrupting Work

  1. Early morning Before the work day starts, you have some low traffic time to get things ready for the day. Spaces like your office lobby can be cleaned prior to opening. This means clients, customers and employees walk into a fresh space without distractions. This can be done by someone who has opening duties or a cleaning crew that is scheduled to do a once over before you open for business. Either way, make sure you have a checklist of activities you’d like accomplished regularly so that nothing gets missed.
  2. Evenings After a long day at work, it might be easiest to end the day by tidying things up and putting things back where they belong. This can include removing debris from carpets and floors, cleaning finger prints off much-used surfaces and more. These tasks are often accomplished in the evening when people have gone home for dinner ” that way there isn’t anyone coming in early to walk across floors that may still be drying or otherwise disrupt the cleaning process. Evening cleanings mean everyone walks into a sparkling work space tomorrow.
  3. Weekends While there are certain tasks that need to be done daily, like emptying waste baskets or sweeping up, sometimes deeper cleans can be left for days that your office is closed. For many businesses this means weekends (though some close on Monday or Tuesday to make room for their weekend rush). When your business is closed, you have time to tackle cleaning and also do some deep cleaning, like removing stains from carpets, having your windows cleaned and even giving the break room fridge a good scrub down. Weekends are a great time not just to catch up on regular maintenance but also to tackle the bigger issues that need to be addressed to keep your business spotless.
  4. During Business Hours There are some tasks that have to be done during business hours because leaving them left undone may actually negatively impact business. This can include things like emptying full or smelly garbage cans, cleaning the restroom or cleaning the break room. If you have a large space to clean and your employees can’t jump in on these tasks, you may want to consider hiring a day porter to take care of these items so they don’t interrupt your work day.

The best times to clean can be intuitive if you’re thinking about when each space gets the most traffic. However, it’s not always easy to find the time for these cleaning tasks.
