Although cleaning your workspace often doesn’t make your daily to-do list, other than a quick tidying up at the end of the day, it does have many benefits. Your workflow, your creativity and your health could all suffer from a dirty and less-than-hygienic desk.

That could leave many surfaces untouched for weeks. Did you recently have a cold? Do you sometimes eat lunch at your desk? Did you spill a drink? Your desk could be harboring germs or mold from viruses or crumbs. Make a point of cleaning your desk and having your computer and telephone professionally cleaned on a regular basis for the sake of your health.
