Cables for computers, screens and electricity
Further reading below

In many offices, cables for computers, screens and electricity are located directly on the floor. Our cleaning staff kindly ask you to not leave them on the floor since this makes the cleaning very difficult. We can all help our cleaning staff to simplify the cleaning job by collecting cables and attaching them to cable channels that are often attached to our desks. Cable ties to collect cables are available outside the janitor's office.
