A clean office is essential for encouraging a happy working environment. Maintaining a clean and tidy working environment is not only important for productivity but also for the health of your employees. Keeping on top of cleaning your office equipment is actually key to running a successful office. Encourage a regular cleaning schedule to keep your office equipment at its best, this will encourage happy productive staff. Here is a guide for cleaning office equipment which should give your your equipment a longer lifespan if followed on a regular basis.
Firstly encourage your staff to not eat at their desk, this will ensure food isn’t lodged in the gaps of your keyboards. Always switch off your keyboard before cleaning. If you have solid buttons (not rubber ones) you can remove the buttons with a screw driver in order to properly clean the them with warm soapy water. Remove any crumbs from the keyboard base, this is most effective using a compressed air can. Return the buttons to the keyboard, ensuring they are fully dry first.
Cleaning computer screens
Computer screens will have a build up of germs, dust and dirt, therefore regular cleaning is important. You will need a spray bottle with 50/50 distilled water and white vinegar. Ensure your monitor is switched off. Spray half of the screen with your solution. Clean all of the screen with a microfibre cloth, using circular motions. Then wipe again with a dry microfibre cloth to remove any streaks.
Cleaning office desk
Regular cleaning is essential for your office desk. This is where you are spending all of your time so it is important it is free from germs, dust and dirt. Not only will it help you work better but it will also be better for your health. Firstly remover everything from your desk. Move monitors and keyboards to one side while you clean that area. Dust the area. Then wipe down with an antibacterial spray to kill any bacteria. Move your monitor and keyboard back in place and do the same for the area you missed. Put your belongings back and enjoy a clean fresh work station!
Cleaning office chairs
Office chairs come in many different varieties. If your office chairs are plastic, they are easy to clean by wiping down with an antibacterial spray. Shine any chrome areas with a little WD-40 on a cloth.
If you have mesh chairs you will have to hoover first to remove any debris then wipe down with a cloth and warm soapy water.
With fabric office chairs you will also have to vacuum first then check the fabric label. If the label says W then you can clean with water based cleaning product. S means solvent so they can be dry cleaned only, WS or SW means they can be dry cleaned or water based cleaned. So if the label has W, WS or SW then you can clean them yourself with warm soapy water.
