Office Cleaning: The Most Overlooked/Easiest Places to Clean

office cleaning concept

Office cleaning is critical because so many people share this space

Office cleaning is critical. When you’re at home, it’s not as challenging to get a handle on germs as when you’re in the office. At home, you can clean as often as you like. However, the office is more unpredictable because people have different cleanliness habits. This reason by itself is why you should consider a commercial cleaning company such as us. You’ll feel secure knowing that your office will be spic and span. Here’s a look at some of the germiest yet most overlooked places to clean in the office (that doesn’t take much work to clean). 

Sink Faucet Handles

The sink faucet is one of the germiest places in the office because so many people touch this area. The same concept applies to bathroom door handles. An effective way to clean a sink faucet handle is to use a disinfectant spray along with a paper towel. If you want to use an Eco-friendly option, there are plenty of green alternatives that exist.

Microwave Door Handles

Microwave door handles can get pretty greasy and grimy. Bacteria from food and uncleanly hands live on companies’ microwave door handles. Many people don’t even think about cleaning this area. Normally people wipe out the inside of a microwave if they see caked-on food, but that’s typically the full extent of cleaning a microwave. One suggestion that we have is to leave a note for office employees to wipe down the microwave handles. Using bleach wipes are a quick and effective way to keep the germs away.

Keyboards

It’d be impossible to count the number of times that office employees touch their keyboards. What’s even more impossible to guess is the number of bacteria and germs that surround a computer or laptop keyboard. Getting up to wash your hands every few seconds isn’t realistic or productive, but what you can do is keep hand sanitizer at your desk. Another tip that we suggest is remembering to wipe down your keyboard at the end of each shift. Here are a few other helpful cleaning tips for how to go about this:

  • Shut the computer or laptop down
  • Detach all cables
  • Take batteries out of a wireless keyboard if your goal is to deep-clean it
  • Shake out all loose debris
  • Use compressed air to blow residue debris away
  • Utilize a dust vacuum to access hard to reach spots
  • Clean around keys with an isopropyl-dipped Qtip
