Office and work environments can be busy and see a lot of traffic, or be quiet with just a few clients and staff passing through on a daily basis. Either way, an office space should be cleaned on a daily basis when it comes to areas that are touched or used often.
As we know, germs can linger on surfaces that are used or worked in. So, it’s important to have a routine to address your office cleaning every day. Even if it’s for lightly-used spaces, keeping your office space free of germs and clean goes a long way to prevent illness and provide a friendly environment for customers to appreciate.
What to Clean Daily in your Office
Bathrooms are often at the top of a cleaning list, and rightly so. Bathrooms are used frequently and can harbor many germs and bacteria. If your restrooms don’t see a lot of traffic, a thorough wipe down with disinfecting wipes could be a quick job at the end of the day. If the bathroom facilities see a lot of people during a workday, a full cleaning could be in order. Cleaning toilets, sinks, and other hard surfaces should be well taken care of and wiped down with sanitizing cleaners. Shining up mirrors quickly and wiping areas that are touched should be sanitized. Lastly, sweeping and mopping the tile or hard surface floors and emptying the trash will keep this environment looking its best and providing a safe, germ-free space for your office.
Kitchens and lunch rooms often need daily cleaning and straightening to keep them looking good. From wiping down hard surfaces and cleaning kitchen sinks to wiping out the microwave and making sure the floors are cleaned and sanitized, you’ll want to tackle this space every day based on how much it is used. Crumbs and spills will probably pop up during an average workday. Make sure these messes are taken care of, chairs are pushed in, and dishes are put away so the room looks good and smells nice for the next day.
Personal offices and cubicles can get germy and messy on a daily basis as well. Wiping down your hard surfaces like desks, phones, and keyboards daily will minimize the spread of illness. Picking up clutter and trash on the floor always keeps a workspace looking nice. Emptying the trash and vacuuming the floors will prevent smells and wear and tear, and prevent any pests from showing up.
Front lobbies shouldn’t be forgotten when it comes to a daily cleaning. Vacuuming or mopping is important when you get a lot of visitors or staff coming through every day. And, you will also want to wipe down the hard surfaces like door handles, glass doors, and arms of chairs in these types of entry areas on a daily basis. Continue to use the disinfecting sprays and wipes you are using in the rest of your office and work environments to keep germs at bay and make your work and office space shine nicely.
Regular Office Cleaning
Cleaning your work and office space on a daily basis goes a long way to keep the appearance nice and germ-free. It might not always be a full, extensive cleaning, but areas that get a lot of use throughout the day ultimately should really get some cleaning attention every workday.
