How to Clean Your Office Like A Pro

Office cleaning involves many activities such as dusting, wiping, mopping, polishing, and disinfecting, and doing them yourselves can be taxing. Companies most often hire cleaning services to do the job for them, but they can cost a lot. If you are on a tight budget but still want to make your office clean and presentable, we got you covered. We will discuss the different easy cleaning procedures that would not take much of your time in this article. 

Organizing and Cleaning Your Office

  1. Design: Consider the layout of your office, the tables, chairs, and drawers, are they located on the most efficient part of your office? Does your workflow run smoothly, or do you have to go from one corner and then go around the room to get to the other side to finish a single task? If not, you might want to fix the orientation of your office first. Once you feel like you can now move freely, organize your documents and other office materials and place in the trash bin the stuff that is no longer needed or damaged.
  2. Equipment/Appliances: Make sure to shut down your computer before cleaning it. Start with cleaning the keyboards using canned air—you can also use sticky notes fold in half or cotton swabs damp with alcohol. Then proceed to your monitor, disconnect it first and then wipe it with a microfiber cloth. Also dust the calculators, phones and other equipment in your office. Any other equipment that requires complex cleaning should follow according to the proper cleaning procedure stated in its manual.
  3. Chairs and Tables: In cleaning an office chair, search for its upholstery tag to guide the cleaning. For a water-safe chair, use a spray bottle with dish soap. If it is not water-safe, the spray bottle should contain alcohol and essential oils. A table/desk, on the other hand, should be wiped with a microfiber cloth, and if made of wood, apply furniture polish.
  4. Floors and windows: Wipe your window first with a glass cleaner spray and a cloth. Then vacuum the surfaces from the inside out. Tiled, hardwood, and carpeted floors require a different type of cleaning. Recoat tiled-floors to preserve their shine, but you don’t have to do this every day; do recoating every six months. On the other hand, hard floors should be re-buffed, and carpets vacuumed and shampooed twice a year.
  1. Washroom: Washroom and door handles should not only be cleaned but also disinfected. Start with refilling the toilet paper, sanitizer, and air-purifier. Then wipe down the glass mirror if your washroom has one. Clean and disinfect the bowl. Empty the trash bin and then mop the floor. Spray and wipe the door handles with disinfectants as well.

We are taught at a young age how important it is to clean ourselves. To avoid illness and to look and smell good. But hygiene should not be only applicable to our body but also to where our body goes, and for an office worker, that is often, of course, our office.
