Tips to Keep Your Commercial Space Organized

Too often Landlords, property managers, and business owners overlook organization in commercial spaces. The reality, however, is that clutter and messes can build up in commercial spaces just as they do in residential ones.

Because of this, it’s a good idea for managers to join in on “Get Organized Week” each year. Get Organized Week is celebrated the first week of October and focuses on decluttering, organizing, and generally getting spaces in nice, functional condition.

Here are some tips to help you and your team take part in GO Week this year.

1.  Make Sure You Have Enough Storage and Cabinets.

If you have clutter throughout the lobby, office, or storage areas in your building, the first thing you need to pay attention to is where everything should go. Is there enough space to organize everything in an orderly manner and to get it out of sight from customers and clients?

If the answer is no, find ways to add more storage and cabinets. When doing this, keep in mind that a high row of cabinets can be a great way to utilize your space and increase your storage.

2.  Assign a Team Member to Be in Charge of All High-Traffic Areas

Once you have the storage and cabinets needed to keep your space organized, the next step is making sure you have systems in place to ensure that all materials end up where they need to be. Don’t just hope that someone will put things away. Instead, have a person responsible for ensuring that all high-clutter spaces are well organized. This doesn’t mean that they’re solely responsible for keeping the space organized, it just means it’s their job to create systems, delegate tasks, and make sure the space stays in good condition.

3.  Have a Comfortable Break Room with Storage

One source of clutter is employees’ belongings that need to go somewhere throughout their workday or shift. A comfortable break room with ample storage is a good way to avoid having this clutter visible and to improve employee morale. This should include space for lunches and snacks, a place to keep belongings, and a comfortable place for employees to lounge during breaks.

4.  Enhance Your FiIling System

Whatever type of commercial building you manage, there is likely no shortage of paperwork that you need to keep. This can be an endless source of clutter, frustration, and disorganization.

The best way to combat this is with effective filing systems. Take a moment to evaluate how your filing systems are working. Look for areas of inefficiency and come up with a plan for addressing them. A better filing system can go a long way toward keeping desks and office spaces organized.
