5 Tips for Effective Office Cleaning
Focus Most on Cleaning High Traffic Areas
Focus on the high traffic areas of the office, they will need the most in-depth, focused attention. Walkways, waiting rooms, break rooms and bathrooms are the most important areas to tackle with fast and effective office cleaning. Once those zones are clean, you can pay attention to areas that are not as commonly used.
Dust from Top to Bottom
When you dust, start with the highest surface you want to clean, like ceilings, light fixtures, picture frames or fan blades. Dust will fall to lower parts of the room as you go and can be vacuumed up versus creating more of a mess if you do upper surfaces last. Take care of the top first and you’ll only have to go over each surface one time.
Clean Floors from Back to Front
Whether you are vacuuming, mopping, or sweeping, you want to start with the back corner of the room and work your way out the door. This will prevent you from stepping on the same areas and tracking in dirt in the process. Use long, firm strokes when you vacuum, and try to only make one stroke over each part of the floor.
Use Specific Cleaning Products for Intended surfaces
Pay attention to what surfaces you are cleaning and use the specific products intended for them. Some office furniture might need wood polish while glass surfaces need glass cleaner to prevent streaking. Keyboards and other electronics require a compressed air product.
Have a Routine Office Cleaning Schedule
Ideally, you should have a routine office-cleaning plan with a team of professionals. This relives burden from employees and establishes a schedule.
