Office cleaning is one of the most important tasks that a business can take on. Not only does it help to maintain a clean and tidy workspace, but it also helps to reduce the amount of stress that employees feel.

There are a number of ways that office cleaning can be done effectively. One approach is to use deep cleaning techniques, which involve taking extra care in removing all the dirt, dust and debris from every nook and cranny. This process is often times more thorough than traditional office cleaning and it can help to restore your workplace to its original condition.

Deep Cleaning Tips

There’s no doubt that a clean office is a happy office. Not only does it look nicer and feel more comfortable, but it also boosts productivity. Here are some deep cleaning tips that will help keep your office in top shape and free from harmful bacteria:

  • Remove all the clutter. This includes everything from magazines to outdated files to stray pens and pencils.
  • Wipe down every surface with a clean rag or sponge.
  • Clean out all the waste baskets and empty coffee cups.
  • Vacuum every corner and crevice.
  • Get rid of any unwanted furniture ornaments and decorations.
  • Scrub toilets, sinks, showers, windowsills, doorsills, and ceilings with a cleaner designed for this purpose.
  • Polish all wood surfaces with a wood care solution or polishing cloth.
  • Wash windowsills, frames and screens regularly; this helps to prevent rain from clinging onto the surface and causing mildew.
  • Clean the inside of ovens and kitchen appliances; this will help ensure that food doesn’t stick to the grate or create harmful smoky fumes.
  • Vacuum often, especially if you have hardwood floors or upholstery; dirt and dust can accumulate over time, creating an ideal environment for mould growth.
  • Professionally mist (or fog) the premises. The misting method uses a biocide that is a 1 per cent Silver Stabilized Hydrogen Peroxide blend that avoids utilising concentrates or dangerous chemicals in the field of application, to quickly deliver a broad-spectrum biocide to the surface and airborne viruses.

  • The next step is a wipe service utilising a 3 per cent Silver Stabilized Hydrogen Peroxide, for all touch points.
