If a workplace is dirty and cluttered it most likely will hinder the staff's performance. Keep the workplace clean by having regular cleanings done by a professional team. It could be daily, or weekly, it all depends on what fits the needs of your building. This cleaning should include vacuuming, wiping and dusting hard surfaces, emptying trash, and whatever else your space may need.
It’s more common for employees to become distracted when desks are messy or when they have to sift through drawers of unorganized files. Encourage employees to stay on top of keeping their desks neat and tidy, as well organizing paperwork away in files and cabinets. Have them spend 10-15 minutes at the end of each work day to clean their areas and put away anything they need too, that way they can come in the next morning without any interruptions.
