Your office is more than a place to work – it’s a place for relaxation and reflection. Do not just clean the office, but sanitize it to maintain good health for yourself and your coworkers. Taking care of your employees always comes first so it is important that you do all you can to keep them healthy and happy.
1. Set Up a Regular Cleaning Schedule
Cleaning is meaningless if you do it only once a year. Set up a schedule that has you cleaning every month or so.
2. Know the Differences Between Words
Cleaning is not the same as disinfecting or sanitizing. Cleaning is as to remove dirt and germs on the surface, but the germs may still exist. Disinfect to kill the germs and bacteria that cannot be seen. Sanitizing is the process of cleaning or disinfection to remove germs.
3. Pinpoint the Most Unclean Areas
The heavy traffic zones where everyone’s feet or hands have been. Start by sanitizing rugs that are harbors for dirt and bacteria.
4. Use Sanitizing Products
The most commonly used product for sanitation is the hand sanitizer. Some air fresheners claim to have sanitizing sprays that remove germs in the air.
5. Clean the Least Expected Places
Germs are found everywhere, even in places where you least expect them. In your office, start cleaning places that you do not clean often. Start with the walls, doorways and other areas that have collected years of dirt and debris.
