Top 10 Office Cleaning Hacks Every Business Should Know

Maintaining a clean and tidy office environment is essential for creating a productive and welcoming workspace. If you have a day porter, this is as simple as a conversation and a business process; however, keeping up with office cleaning tasks can be time-consuming and challenging without those resources. Fortunately, there are several clever hacks that businesses can employ to streamline the cleaning process and maintain a pristine office space. You can incorporate these into your janitorial contract or ask your tenants to join in the effort!


Here are the top 10 office cleaning hacks every business should know:


  1. Declutter Desks Regularly: Encourage employees to declutter their desks at the end of each day to prevent the accumulation of papers and other clutter.

  2. Use Microfiber Cloths: Microfiber cloths are highly effective at capturing dust and dirt without the need for cleaning chemicals. Use them to wipe down surfaces, keyboards, and monitors.

  3. Create a Cleaning Schedule: Establish a cleaning schedule that outlines daily, weekly, and monthly cleaning tasks to ensure that all areas of the office are regularly maintained.

  4. Invest in Air Purifiers: Air purifiers help to remove allergens, dust, and other airborne particles, improving indoor air quality and reducing the need for frequent dusting.

  5. Utilize Multi-Purpose Cleaning Products: Choose multi-purpose cleaning products that can be used on various surfaces to simplify the cleaning process and minimize clutter in supply closets.

  6. Spot Clean Carpets: Keep carpets looking fresh by spot-cleaning spills and stains as soon as they occur to prevent them from setting and becoming more difficult to remove.

  7. Use Vinegar for Cleaning Glass Surfaces: Vinegar is a natural and effective cleaner for glass surfaces such as windows and mirrors—dilute vinegar with water in a spray bottle for streak-free cleaning.

  8. Clean Electronics Regularly: Dust and dirt can accumulate on electronics such as computer monitors, keyboards, and phones. Use compressed air or electronic-safe cleaning wipes to remove dust and sanitize these surfaces regularly.

  9. Sanitize High-Touch Areas: Pay special attention to high-touch areas such as door handles, light switches, and shared equipment to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria.

  10. Encourage Employee Participation: Encourage employees to take ownership of office cleanliness by providing training on proper cleaning techniques and encouraging them to clean up after themselves in common areas.


By implementing these office cleaning hacks, businesses can maintain a clean and organized workspace that promotes productivity, health, and employee satisfaction.
