Keeping the office clean improves productivity and morale, removes germs, and makes a good impression on visitors. However, some items in the office need to be cleaned more frequently. Here are five things in an office that should be cleaned regularly but are frequently missed:

  1. Computer and Keyboard

Employees touch their keyboard and mouse constantly throughout the day. This could inadvertently transfer germs, and dirt. Cleaning the keyboard and mouse can get rid of harmful bacteria. Wiping down the computer monitor keeps the screen easy to see and free of dust.

  1. Desks

Desks often become quite messy with all of the items employees put in there. Cleaning the inside helps to keep everything organized, gets rid of bacteria and those left over food items. Wiping down the top of the desk keeps dust away that can cause allergies and asthma act up.

  1. Trash Cans

Plastic bags help to keep the trash can clean, but the trash can should also be regularly disinfected. Trash cans are a breeding ground for bacteria, which can lead to illnesses.

  1. Floor

Whether it’s tile or carpet, the floor should be cleaned regularly. Carpet especially can trap dirt, dust, and other debris that can make allergies and asthma worse. Stains on tile show easily and don’t make a good impression.

  1. Phones

Phones, much like the keyboard get touched a lot. To help prevent the spread of germs and bacteria, they should be cleaned and disinfected frequently. Crevices in the phone can also catch all sorts of dirt particles that need to be wiped off.

Other items in the office that should be cleaned regularly include door handles, light switches, bathrooms and more.
