6 Things a Messy or Dirty Office Says About You and Your Business

A few months ago, a friend of ours walked into a local business to discuss starting a working relationship. He knew exactly what he was looking for and was open to giving this firm a shot. But as soon as he and his wife began walking through the lobby and into the main part of the building, he couldn’t help but notice how messy, dirty, and cluttered everything looked. He even whispered to his wife before shaking the owner’s hand, “What a dirty office!”

Our friend isn’t the most nit-picky person out there, so the fact that he was so bothered really said something. There were numerous stains all over the carpet, which looked like it hadn’t been replaced in over a decade. The lobby smelled musty, and there were streaks on the windows. Even the office desks were caked in dust, and every trash bin was overflowing.

He swore to us later that it was the dirtiest office he’d ever been in. So guess what happened? He chose a different firm.

Did he overreact on the whole dirty office thing?

Doing business can be chaotic, especially when you’re hyper-focused on taking care of your employees and customers. But first impressions are everything, and while you’re probably amazing at what you do, your company image should always be top of mind. When people are coming and going — whether they are prospective clients or people who visit you all the time — and your office smells bad or has dust, debris, and trash everywhere, it isn’t exactly a great look.

In fact, studies consistently show that when choosing between two companies, most customers see a dirty office as a massive turnoff. And it’ll likely send them running in the opposite direction to one of your competitors.

Believe it or not, but a dirty office says this about your company:

  1. You’re not organized.
  2. You have poor attention to detail.
  3. You spend more time trying to find things than doing things.
  4. You and your staff aren’t serious about your work.
  5. Perhaps you buckle under pressure.
  6. If you don’t invest money in cleanliness, you might not do the same with your products and services.

Dirty Office = No Bueno

As we spoke about in one of our previous blog posts, it’s important to be active and involved in your community — especially as a small-business owner. Along with that is ensuring that your office or storefront is in tip-top shape when community members and prospective clients visit you. It’s critical that everyone walk into a clean environment.

Your office should smell good and be clutter-free.

Your carpets and hardwood floors should be vacuumed, swept, mopped, and professionally cleaned.

Trash should be out of customer view, and widows should be spotless. Public restrooms should also be cleaned and stocked.
