The 7 Most Ignored Cleaning Spots in Offices
Saturday, September 19, 2020
Occasionally, office cleaners might miss a spot and think, “Hey, it looks good, they’ll never know!”Well, allthough appearances are important, as long as there is bacteria or grime accumulating, that’s a health risk. If you want a clean office, you’ll want to tackle every cluttered and dirty area. Below we detail the 7 most ignored areas of an office that should see a good, thorough cleaning regularly, preferably by a professional commercial cleaning company like Green Mountain:
Carpet on its top may appear clean, like new even. Below that, though, a carpet can easily hide thick layers of dust and possibly even mildew. Be sure to give the deep part of your carpet a good look every now and again.That way, you won’t be caught off-guard by mildew development or increased office allergies.
Doorknobs hosting bacteria and germs
Some days doorknobs are the most touched surface in your office. Even so though, they are still occasionally forgotten about. Apply a mild disinfectant on a regular basis to ensure bacteria is not spread between employees.
Ceiling fans need to be sprayed and wiped down regularly. Take a look at them. It’s inevitable the blades will become covered in grime and dust.
Clean and disinfect all telephones in the office. Due to constant use, the buttons on a phone are the perfect place for pathogens to hang out. A phone’s receiver can also get gradually covered in makeup or fingerprints, which is not something anyone should hold up to their face.
Computers and printers
Computers and printers get used every day, and yet, a lot of the time, we forget how many pathogens they can gather. Printers, in particular, don’t see a lot of cleaning. Turn the keyboard upside down and give it a few taps – you’re likely to see some debris fall out. The surface of your mouse should also be wiped and disinfected as well on a regular basis because it’s used every day.
The last most ignored spot in the office are the top of light fixtures. Like ceiling fans, these are perfect places for dust in the room to accumulate. Because you can’t see it, you might not think twice about these places. That said, giving them a quick wipe with a microfiber cloth on the regular does a tremendous amount in reducing dust build-up.
A commercial cleaning company like Green Mountain can keep your staff and customers safe from pathogens by ensuring these areas are cleaned with commercial-grade disinfectants. Contact us today for a quote: https://www.green-mountain-group.com/page/contact-us.
