Home Office Organization Hacks for Post-COVID Workforce Housing

Maintaining productivity is dependent on keeping your home office tidy and organized. It can be not easy to maintain cleanliness, particularly if you are not used to working from home. Your company may have also hired professional office cleaners. Your office may be so clean that no amount of cleaning at home will compare.

It’s still not difficult to organize your home workspace. Here are a few hacks and tips to help you get started.

Start with Your Desk

You can think of your desk as the hub of all activity. If your desk is a mess, it will make everything look and feel cluttered. It is only logical that you organize your desk first before tackling anything else in your office.

Trays or document holders will help you keep your desk neat. Mugs and other containers are also useful for holding pens, scissors, and other tools. You can also buy cable organizers or simple twist ties. These are great for keeping charging cords, different wires, and cables out of your way. They also keep your desk looking tidy.

Regularly wipe your desk surface with a dampened cloth sprayed with antibacterial spray. Use equal parts of water and white vinegar. Why? Your desk is dirty by more than dirt and dust. You’ve probably eaten your lunch at work and left crumbs everywhere.

For wooden desks, sodium bicarbonate is effective in removing scratches and other marks. Hair dryers work well on water rings.


Home offices don’t have the same clear boundaries as a traditional workplace. It would be best if you were well organized. There are many simple ways to keep your things organized.

To begin with, you should dedicate a space to your books and notepads. Use trays or document holders for your paperwork; if there is a lot of it, you may want to invest in a file cabinet. Instead of using scrap paper to take notes, use a notebook (you shouldn’t print too many documents anyway).

Have a bin or a basket ready for all of your non-work items that find their way into your office. Put everything in the bin or basket while you are working. After a long day of work, you can pick up the bin and return everything to its proper place.

Handheld vacuums are Magic.

Handheld or mini vacuums can help you keep your home office free of dust. These small, powerful vacuum cleaners can pick up dust, pet and human hair, pollen, and other debris.

You can use the handheld vacuum to clean almost any surface of your home office from top-to-bottom. It can be used to clean an office chair, especially if it is upholstered. Use the right attachments for a deep clean.

Do not forget your computer keyboard and screen.

It’s easy to forget about things like the keyboard and screen of your computer when you are cleaning and organizing your home office. When you leave them as is, these items can quickly collect dirt, dust, and grime. It will not only make the object look bad, but it can also be a breeding ground for bacteria.

It’s very easy to clean computer components. You can clean your keyboard with items that you have at home. To remove dirt, use the brush attachment on the handheld vacuum mentioned above or compressed air. Use a cotton bud lightly dipped in alcohol to remove stubborn dirt between the keys. You can also use a microfibre towel to clean the key faces.

To prevent scratches, use a microfibre soft cloth on the screen. If you see any greasy residues, such as fingerprints, dampen the microfibre cloth with distilled water or filtered purified water. Do not spray liquid directly on the screen. Even eyeglass cleaning cloths are sufficient for regular maintenance.

Daily Maintenance

Consistency is the key to keeping your home office organized. Do not let the clutter build up. Wipe or dust surfaces exposed at the end of each workday. Return any items that are not in the right place. It’s important to complete small tasks as quickly as possible to avoid them becoming bigger ones that make you procrastinate. A clean, organized workspace can boost your productivity and improve your mood. A dirty work environment makes it difficult to be productive. With a clean and tidy workspace, you will be able to do your job faster and better. These simple tips will make organizing your home office easy.
