The Office Cleaning Checklist You Can’t Do Without
Posted on by Beirut Abu Hdaib
Only a few people out there can thrive in an unorganized and messy environment, however, for the rest of us, having a clean and tidy setup is an essential key to clarity and provides a forward push towards being more productive.
I work from home and in order for me to be able to sit and get any work done, my office needs to be spotless and neat. If you are anything like me, you will definitely appreciate this office cleaning checklist, as it is simple, easy and very effective.
Bookshelves: Remove all the books, magazines and any gadgets or decorations, dust them, wipe down the shelves with a microfiber cloth and then put everything back in its place. If you don’t have much time on your hands, you can simply use an extendable duster to dust the bookshelves without removing anything and leave the heavy cleaning for a later time.
The Desk: Dust all the accessories you have on the desk, pick them up and wipe under them as well. Dust your computer and keyboard and any other electronics you have. Finish off by wiping the desk’s surface, its legs and any drawers it may have.
*If you have filing cabinets, tables and other furnishings, make sure you dust them too.
“Hangables”, Accessories & Decorations: Blinds, hanging picture frames and light fixtures can be wiped down or simply dusted using the extendable duster we previously mentioned followed by a quick wipe down of door handles, light switches and baseboards.
* On a monthly basis, you can take down any office curtains and wash them if you find yourself up to it.
* You can also clean any windows in your office once or twice a month, depending on your schedule and their cleanliness.
Floors: If you have some rugs or carpets, make sure you vacuum them. Otherwise, just use a broom to collect the dust and finish off with a quick floor mopping. Empty any waste bins you have in the office.
*If you dust and vacuum occasionally, dust will not accumulate and cleaning will take much less time and effort.
Final Touches: If you can any copper or brass, make sure you polish them too along with any glass surfaces.
