WHAT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO CLEAN YOUR OFFICE?

When it comes to keeping offices clean, it's essential that a schedule of tasks gets followed both daily and monthly. Certain chores need to be done every day while deep cleaning chores need only take place once a month.

Daily office cleaning is important to keep allergens, dust and other irritants at bay which is especially important for those staff members that suffer from allergies or sensitivities. Deep cleaning can be done monthly and is more focussed on areas that are not as “high-traffic” as your daily cleaning zones would be.

WHAT IS NEEDED TO CLEAN OFFICES?

Here are a few daily cleaning tips and tricks that your cleaning team should implement every day in and around the office. Use these as a checklist for keeping the high-traffic or well-used areas in your office clean and germ-free.

DUST WORK SURFACES DAILY

TIP #1 – DUST WORK SURFACES DAILY

Dust is a nasty allergen that can affect many staff members if not kept at bay. Cleaners will often keep work areas like desks, computers and keyboards dust-free but will forget out-of-the-way places like shelves, bookshelves, fans and air vents. All your cleaning team needs is a good quality micro-fibre cloth that they use over all office areas every day, to keep dust from settling down or getting blown into the air.

DISINFECT HIGH TRAFFIC ZONES DAILY

TIP #2 – DISINFECT HIGH TRAFFIC ZONES DAILY

When we talk about high traffic zones within an office, we mean those rooms, areas and surfaces that get used constantly throughout the day by multiple people. Spaces like the kitchen, bathrooms, chill areas, coffee stations, eating areas, meeting rooms, or hot desks. Your cleaning team should use a great quality product like Handy Andy Multipurpose Cleaner which is available in 5 L professional sizes and is the perfect all-purpose cleaner to disinfect surfaces in high-traffic areas as well as floors and walls too.

HOW DO YOU DEEP CLEAN AN OFFICE?

Office deep cleaning should take place once a month and this entails a full, deep clean of certain areas that otherwise might not get cleaned thoroughly each day. Here are our tips for your office deep cleaning checklist.

DEEP CLEAN THE FRIDGE EVERY MONTH

TIP #3 – DEEP CLEAN THE FRIDGE EVERY MONTH

The communal office fridge can be a breeding ground for bacteria especially when leftovers and lunches are, well, left over. Staff often forget to eat what they've left in the fridge, and this can lead to food going bad. Get your cleaning team to clean out the fridge completely once a month, taking absolutely everything in it, out. They should use a good bleaching product like Domestos Multipurpose Thick Bleach to tackle any areas where mould or spoiled foods have leaked.

VACUUM CARPETED AREAS THOROUGHLY

TIP #4 – VACUUM CARPETED AREAS THOROUGHLY

This task can be done more often than once a month, and in fact we recommend it be done every second week. If your office has carpets in areas like meeting rooms, board rooms, or in desk areas, then dust can commonly settle throughout the day. A good vacuum every second week will ensure that the dust is picked up and soiled areas are cleaned as well.

As businesses, it's important to get feedback from your staff on how happy they are with the office's level of cleanliness. A clean, germ-free, dust-free office goes a long way in improving employee wellness and health too.
