Your government office is getting dirty and dusty, and it’s time to bring in some help. The office space, bathrooms, kitchen, and hallways all require regular cleaning attention, while some areas can be sensitive security-wise, and require special accommodations. You know everything needs cleaning regularly, but what should be involved for which areas of your government building, and how often should someone take the time to tidy up? Let’s discuss everything you need to know about how to clean a government office building.

“When your environment is clean, you feel happy, motivated and healthy.” Lailah Gifty Akita

How to Clean a Government Office Building

Cleaning is More than Dusting

Cleaning any office environment means more than dusting and vacuuming. Cleaning also includes other high traffic areas like restrooms, employee kitchen and lunch areas, as well as lobby, hallway and reception areas. Tackling every space as a whole office will keep the entire space looking its best.

When the public and your employees enter your government building, they expect a reception area that has been dusted and vacuumed, shiny floors, windows that are free of fingerprints, and chairs kept spot and stain-free. The restrooms in these front areas will be a high traffic space and should be treated as so, remembering to disinfect toilet and sink areas, but also making sure mirrors, windows, doors, and light switches are free of dirt and grime. Keeping these areas sanitized and picked up will ensure a safe and pleasant visit.

Cleaning Employee-Used Areas

Keeping your government facility clean also involves the cleaning of offices and employee-used areas. This means keeping work spaces dusted, sanitized, and vacuumed. It also involves a thorough cleaning of restrooms and kitchen or lunch areas so they are disinfected and shined up nicely. Caring for these employee areas keeps staff happy and healthy as well.

Special Trash Disposal Requirements

Trash should be dealt with according to the protocol required by the government office being cleaned. Disposal of trash and shredded paperwork should be handled with respect to rules and handling for these types of trash. Disposal of sensitive types of papers and trash, regular trash, and recycling throughout the office, public areas and kitchens need to be taken care of on a regular basis. Also, keep in mind that high traffic areas might need to be emptied more than once a day.

Floors and Safety

Not only do floors need to be vacuumed, dry dusted or wet mopped, they also need to be picked up and kept clear of any wet spills or objects dropped in these office spaces. Addressing safety issues as they come up will help safeguard against accidents. High traffic floor areas tend to get dirty pretty quickly, and you’ll want to stay on top of floor cleanup.
