Even though employers schedule daily professional cleanings, personal items such as computers, phones, and chairs may not be part of the professional cleaner’s duties. This means that employees will have to do a little day-to-day cleaning to maintain a productive and clean working environment. Even though employees are busy and hard at work, here are some simple inexpensive office cleaning hacks that can be done in just a few minutes.
Chairs will wear down your carpets and hard floors. Keep them looking pristine by investing in a chair mat. You can get them from your local office supply store or from online retailers like Amazon. They will usually run you between $20-$40 dollars, but it is far less expensive than replacing your carpet or hard floor. Cleaning them is easy, often needing just a sweep or a quick wipe down with a damp cloth.
Stains can be cleaned from office chairs or lobby furniture by creating a stain remover with one tablespoon of dish soap and two tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide. Apply a generous amount of the mixture and scrub away with a small brush. This is best done at the end of the day or after hours because it works best when left sitting for a few hours.
Electronic screens, such as that of a laptop, tablet, or television, can be cleaned using a soft microfiber cloth or a coffee filter. At most, they should be only slightly moistened as water damages electronics.
Many employees bring in their own lunch, but often forget to bring it home or throw it out. The food gets moldy and clutters the fridge. Schedule a disposal day, like on Fridays, where everything that is left gets tossed out at the end of the day.
