An office is an environment that can be difficult to keep clean. As there will normally be a great deal of foot traffic and due to the fact that not everyone will remove their own rubbish, it is a good idea to have a checklist in place to help tackle what can certainly be a challenging task. Let’s take a quick look at some of the primary areas that should be attended to.
All bins should be emptied out on a daily basis or as is needed. Rubbish is not only unsightly, but it can present a health hazard. It is also recommended that sanitiser be sprayed into each bin at least once every week. This will again cut down on bacteria, mould and fungus.
Surfaces such as counter tops and desks should be wiped down at least once every five days; preferably at the end of the work week. Areas such as kitchens will obviously need to be cleaned more regularly.
It is obvious that an office bathroom will deserve special attention. Particularly in the case of an office with many employees, a bathroom may need to be cleaned on a daily basis. Common surfaces such as mirrors, basins and toilets need to be disinfected. The floor should be swept and mopped. Another great tip is to also wipe down any light switches or paper towel dispensers.
All floors and carpets should be swept, mopped and vacuumed (if applicable). While tile floors can be cleaned quite easily, it is recommended that carpets be addressed with a steam cleaner; many allergens and dust particles could otherwise remain present. Within a commercial environment, it is recommended that an industrial-grade floor cleaner be used instead of one that is only designed for domestic purposes.
These are some of the top tips that will enable any office cleaning job to be tackled quickly and efficiently. In terms of quality control, proper cleanliness is essential to have in place. With a bit of foresight and planning, even the needs of the largest office can easily be met.
