If you have been contemplating hiring a domestic cleaner for your home office, here are some reasons that will help convince you to commit.
If you have clients coming into your home office for meetings, or even video conferencing meetings where clients or co-workers can see your office, having a clean and tidy office presents a professional appearance and increases peoples trust in your ability to do your job. By hiring an office cleaner, you don't need to constantly worry about your office presentation showing as dirty or unkempt, which can be a significant concern if your work is usually done in a more corporate environment.
Many people feel more productive and motivated in a clean and organised office. Bringing in a cleaner could spur you to spending more time in your office, and help you to find more focus while you are working.
If you don't have a cleaner come in, then you will need to spend time cleaning the office yourself. If you already have a professional cleaner coming in for the rest of the house, adding in the home office is not going to add too much to the cost, and the cost of the office cleaning will be tax deductible as an operating expense.
Professional cleaners are very efficient at cleaning and will clean your workspace in less time than it would take you, and they will not get distracted by phone calls and tasks as you do. In a well organised office you will be able to find items quicker and work more efficiently, which can also end up saving time.
A messy desk is an occupational health and safety risk with more chance of slips, trips and falls if there are items on the floor. By cleaning dishes and emptying bins, you can also stop germs and bacteria from spreading round the office, which can reduce your sick days. Home offices are often small spaces so keeping them neat and tidy is an important way to maximise the usable area.
As you can see, a professional cleaner can be a very important member of your office team, even if they are not directly working in your business. Make sure to clearly communicate your expectations on what you would like cleaned (and anything that shouldn't be touched).
