In the past, I’ve really struggled to keep my office space and desk clean. And, my guess is, if you’re reading this article, there’s a chance that you’ve also struggled or are currently struggling with that same issue as well. 

The truth is, keeping your office space and desk clean can be a pretty daunting task, especially if you’re someone who spends a lot of time in that space. However, by following a few simple steps, you can maintain a clean and organized office environment.

Things You Can do to Keep Your Office Space and Desk Clean

The first step in keeping your office space and desk clean is to establish a daily routine. This can include tasks such as straightening up your desk, wiping down surfaces, and organizing papers and documents. It’s important to make these tasks a habit, so that they become second nature and don’t take up too much of your time.

Another important aspect of keeping your office space clean is to declutter regularly. This can include going through your drawers and filing cabinets and getting rid of anything that you no longer need or use. This will not only free up space but will also make it easier to find what you need when you need it.

In addition to decluttering, it’s important to keep your office space organized. This can include using desk organizers and trays, as well as labeling folders and documents. This will make it easier for you to find what you need, and will also make your office space look more professional.

It’s also important to regularly clean your office. This can include dusting, wiping down surfaces, vacuuming, or sweeping. This will not only help you maintain a clean environment, but it will also improve the air quality in your office.

Finally, it’s important to be mindful of your own behavior in the office. This means being mindful of what you bring into the office, such as food or drinks, and being mindful of how you use your space. For example, try to avoid eating at your desk or at least clean up after yourself if you do.


Keeping your office space and desk clean is important for both your productivity and your overall well-being.

So, no matter how daunting of a task it is, by establishing a daily routine, decluttering regularly, keeping your office space organized, cleaning your office, and being mindful of your own behavior, you can maintain a clean and organized office environment!
