These are our 5 top actionable office cleaning tips your company can start doing today!
The kitchen is likely the area that gets the most foot-traffic in any office. People come and go to drop things off and pick things up on an hourly basis. Because of the this, it is important that kitchen rules are applied to keep it well-maintained.
We recommend having a daily roster (perhaps organised by a personal assistant or office admin) where certain employees are in-charge of looking after the condition of the kitchen for the day. This may include making sure that the dishes are cleaned and that the drying rack is kept in a respectable condition.
Every desk has a bin. However, not everyone necessarily takes the initiative to dispose of it properly.
It is crucial that every office desk bin is emptied every 1-2 days. If not, you may find the office will quickly start to attract a smelly aroma.
The same applies to office fridges. If unattended regularly, food may quickly go off, and this will also attract weird and funky smells. We recommend keeping on-top of emptying the fridge and bins every 1-2 days.
The keyboard and mouse is one of the most used electrical items by every employee in any office. Because of this fact, it should be at the top of the list to regularly clean.
Cleaning the underside and the edges of the keys on the keyboard will get rid of excess dust and grit. Ensure to give your mouse a gentle wipe-down with a cloth. By doing this regularly, you eliminate the build of unwanted germs and bacteria.
Common office stationery such as staplers, paper notes, notepads, folders and mugs often find themselves piled up all over desks. This not only looks like an eye-sore, however, may also lead to a decline in productivity.
When we start to procrastinate tidying up our desks, it may also open up doors to procrastinate about other work-related tasks. It only makes sense right?
We recommend having a designated area for all your office stationery. All folders are organised in one section, paper notes in another and staplers and pens in a clear and visible location.
Every office should be equipped with a vacuum, cleaning detergent and bin liners. If your office doesn’t have either of these then it’s important to purchase them and store them on-hand.
A vacuum cleaner may come in handy when there are liquid spills that need to be cleaned up immediately. Alternatively, there are different kinds of vacuums available that may better clean hardwood surfaces or marble surfaces.
Cleaning detergent and a cloth can also be used by office employees to give their desks a quick wipe down. Always ensure there are cleaning equipment in storage as you never know what is going to be required. This is especially the case if your business or company houses a large number of employees.
