Tips for Cleaning and Sanitizing Your Office

Tips for Cleaning and Sanitizing Your Office

As more Arizonans return to the workplace, it’s essential to implement new cleaning and sanitation guidelines to keep employees safe and healthy at the office. While many offices do utilize custodial services, these services may not be enough to stop the spread of illness and address current coronavirus concerns. The following tips will help you clean and sanitize your office effectively and efficiently. 

Close for a Deep Cleaning Day

If it has been a while since the last time your office was deeply cleaned, dedicate a day to cleaning your workspace. Moving into the summer season, many businesses are finding work to be slower than normal. So, you may have some spare time to schedule staff for a cleaning day. Household disinfectants are effective for surfaces like desks, countertops, tables, and other common high-touch areas in the office. When cleaning, use a one-direction technique when wiping down a given surface. This will avoid bringing new germs to a space that’s already been cleaned. 

Know How to Disinfect Electronics 

Electronic devices can prove tricky to clean and disinfect, because water and other liquids can easily damage these devices. However, your office is likely filled with various electronics that get handled by multiple employees each day. Keep a stack of clean microfiber towels handy to wipe down different electronics and use rubbing alcohol with a cotton swab or microfiber towel to disinfect devices. Eyeglass cleaner can be used for surfaces like touchscreens. 

Provide Cleaning Equipment to Your Staff

One of the most important steps in cleaning and sanitation is repetition. To keep your office clean, keep it stocked with disinfectant wipes and other cleaning equipment that can be quickly used after a given task. For example, keeping disinfectant wipes in the conference room can remind team members to wipe down the table and chairs after a group meeting.
