Why You Should Clean Your Office Meeting Room Regularly

An office meeting room is a place where great ideas, strategies and innovations are born. You also make important decisions and deals in your meeting room. That's why it's important that your meeting room is clean and tidy at all times.

You might not use it as much as your main office, but when you do, you want your meeting room to be comfortable and distraction-free. A dirty or untidy meeting room can have a negative impact on your business.

Dusty meeting rooms trigger allergies

Meeting rooms are often empty for long stretches of time. During that time, dust can settle and build up on surfaces and flooring. This means that anyone with breathing difficulties or allergies, including employees, partners and customers, will suffer as the meeting progresses.

Keep your meeting room dust-free by vacuuming and dusting after each use.

Musty odours distract and irritate

As well as dust, meeting rooms can also pick up musty odours. This is especially true if a meeting room is busy and the occupants often consume food and refreshments during meetings. Old food begins to rot and attract mould, while spilled drinks can also cause begin to smell bad over time.

During a meeting, cloying, unpleasant odours can distract and irritate the meeting attendees. In turn, this will affect the meeting itself, with the bad odours taking centre stage over the contents of the meeting.

Hiring cleaners to remove food debris and clean upholstery between meetings will prevent bad smells from ruining meetings.

Germs can congregate in meeting rooms

In the confined space of a meeting room, germs can build up on the surfaces. For instance, the surface of the meeting table will encounter multiple pairs of hands, not to mention drink and food items. This means that if you don't clean the surfaces in your meeting room regularly, the germs and dirt could begin to affect the health of your employees.

Pests flock to food debris and unemptied bins

It's also important to keep pests out of your meeting room as these can spread germs and cause allergies. If your meeting room bins always contain half-eaten food and food wrappers, pests like ants, flies and cockroaches might soon take an interest.

A pest infestation could render your meeting room unusable until you hire someone to deal with the infestation. By keeping your bins clean and free of food by emptying them daily, you can keep pests out of your meeting room.

A clean meeting room can make a good impression

When you invite special guests, such as customers or business partners to your business, a clean meeting room is an important asset. If your meeting room is organized, tidy and clean, you can leave a good impression on visitors. A dirty, smelly meeting room will have a negative impact on your reputation.

Keep your meeting room clean, well-stocked and organized at all times. This will ensures that you can invite guests to your meeting room whenever you need without encountering smells, mess and disorganization.  

Dirt and mess gets in the way of the creative process

If you have to clean and tidy your meeting room before—and during—every meeting, you'll have less time to focus on what's really important. You want meeting attendees to focus fully on the meeting, not the dirt and mess left over from the last meeting.
