SENTENCE: Please maintain the COFFEE AREA neat and clean!

WHERE: My office kitchenette.

CORRECTION: Please maintain keep the COFFEE AREA neat and clean!

GRAMMAR: This one is purely based on usage. There is no logical reason why keep can be followed by an object with adjectives and maintain can't, but there it is.
