It seems like it’s been forever (nearly a year is a long time, no joke) since a lot of us have had to step into an office, but the time is approaching as things open back up and many of us make the transition back to working from an office instead of our living room couch.
That means that now, more than ever, keeping your office space clean and sanitized should be high on list of priorities for good day to day operations and keeping everyone safe while we ease back into a regular (sort of) schedule.
The biggest problem areas are places that have high traffic of visitors and potential cross touching. Desks, trash bins, doors, counters, computer equipment, and etc.
Cleaning Your Office and Surrounding Areas
The best way to keep yourself and everyone working in the same office space safe is to have a thorough cleaning plan in place, even if you don’t have an actual team that comes in to sanitize (if you’re looking for someone, Advanced Sanitizing offers comprehensive cleaning and sanitizing services for nearly any office or business setting).
- Surface Cleaning – A slightly damp soft towel or microfiber cloth is ideal for getting rid of surface dust and light messes. Make sure to go around surfaces in the office where dust tends to settle, including window frames, door frames, pictures, and behind or on top of computer equipment.
- Vacuuming and/or Mopping – Areas of high or moderate traffic will most likely need a pretty good cleaning. Depending on your floor, you will want to vacuum or mop to clean up persistent dirt, spills, and the various other bits of clutter that end up being tracked in by workers and visitors.
- Disinfecting – In the span of a day, a lot of surfaces are touched, and usually by multiple people. This creates a lot of opportunity for bacteria to gather, grow, and then spread quickly. Areas that are touched often, such as keyboards, phones, computer mice, and desk surfaces should be wiped down with a light cleaning solution or disinfectant wipe.
- Sanitizing – For the ultimate level of clean, professional sanitization services can benefit your business a lot. Using a combination of disinfectant fogging, UVC light decontamination, and then a final application of a hospital grade antimicrobial coating, you can rest easy knowing you have the benefit of full protection for up to 90 days.
One thing that is very important to consider when cleaning your office, or any area really, is how you are going to keep up with it. If you are only cleaning once every 3 months, it’s probably safe to say that your efforts aren’t doing much good. This doesn’t mean that you need a professional cleaning service to come every time, it just means that you will need to make a plan to ensure that at least general cleaning is done on a regular basis to make the time between professional sanitization treatments last as long possible and be as effective as possible.
Cleaning doesn’t have to be an all the time thing, but maintaining even a basic schedule will help you in the long run. And if you have a team that comes in to clean, even better. Keep that going, and every couple of months have a deep sanitization and disinfecting done to maximize the benefits.
