Office Cleaning Tips

  • Most office supply and electronics stores offer special wipes made for keyboards. Pick some up and wipe your keyboard and monitor daily, price especially if you sometimes eat meals or snack at your desk. Let the the keyboard dry before you begin using it again.
  • Clean your office phone frequently by spraying cleaner onto a cloth and wiping that on your phone. Dip a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol to wipe down the dial pad.
  • Take out the trash frequently and vacuum frequently in areas that people eat. This will help keep the bugs at bay.
  • Require employees to write their name on any food they put in the refrigerator. If they plan to keep something in the fridge a long time (like salad dressing, for example), they should write the date they opened it as well. Also, assign a day each month to be “kitchen clean-out day.” Any food left in the fridge that day should be thrown away (unless it’s an item that takes a very long time to expire, like ketchup or olives).
    All dishes in the break room should be cleaned immediately after a meal. Also, require employees to put dried dishes away on a specific day of the week so that the dish rack doesn’t become overcrowded.
  • If you make a mess in the microwave, you have to clean it up immediately. Waiting will only make the problem worse because the food will have dried up.
  • Take good care of any office plants. Remove dry and shedding leaves, water consistently, and watch for signs of decay. If you can’t keep the plant looking beautiful and healthy, either purchase an artificial plant (and be sure to dust it often) or don’t have any plants in the office whatsoever.
