Spring is long over, but let's be honest: You should probably be cleaning your office area more frequently than annually anyway, right?

If you need some motivation, consider two facts: Viruses can linger on unclean surfaces, and a cluttered desk may well be reducing your productivity. An infographic by Cleaning Services Group, a cleaning services provider, offers those reasons and more for sprucing up your workspace.
