Office 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, areas in an office space that are touched or used often should be cleaned on a daily basis. As we all know, germs can linger on surfaces, so it’s important to have a routine to address your office cleaning every day. Here’s our guide for what to clean daily in your office.
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 the priority, and wiped down with sanitizing cleaners. Shining up mirrors quickly, too. 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, smells nice, and keeps pests away.
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 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 regular use ultimately should get some cleaning attention every workday.
