A quarter or more of our weekly time is spent in our work space which means it’s also one of the most likely places we may spread germs.  Make sure these spaces get cleaned and doesn’t contribute to the office germ pot luck. 

-Door handles: Everyone has to touch them and they are a community center of germ infestation.

-Keyboards and mice: Weather it’s clocking in or out or updating office data, the small crevices and frequently touched buttons are an easy way to spread the common cold throughout the work place.

-File cabinets and racks: If it collects dust, it will collect germs.  Make sure to wipe them down as part of your weekly office cleaning.

-Water cooler: The water cooler is one of the most over looked places to clean because it’s not always in frequently cleaned areas but is used by almost everyone.

-Printer, copier and phones: So many buttons and so many germs! Disinfecting wipes are an easy way to clean in small spaces while not damaging critical components.

-Time clock: If it’s got buttons then it’s probably a germ factory. It’s another item that takes just a few seconds to wipe down with a disinfecting cloth.

-Computers: The front of computers is the perfect home for a family of dust bunnies and allergens. Use compressed air or a soft cloth to clean.

-Appliances- Things like the coffee pot, refrigerator, tea kettle and toaster are all things that collect germs but may not get cleaned unless used by the person doing the cleaning.  Make sure they get cleaned at least once a week or after every use.

-Window units heating and air conditioning- While most offices have central heat and air conditioning, that may not be the case in offices that are primarily warehouse space.  The top of the units, vents and mesh filter may need cleaning at least once a month while the coils should be cleaned at least once a year.

For high traffic areas, consider daily cleaning.  Also, don’t overlook places like trim, baseboards or window sills when deep cleaning.
