Whether you’re in a traditional office filled with cubicles (that are oh so good at collecting dust) or in a medical, retail or restaurant setting where cleanliness is critically important, we’ve put together an office cleaning supplies checklist.Not only does a clean office give a good first impression to customers, it’s also important for employees to come to work in a sanitary environment that’s organized and well kept. Spring cleaning has arrived! Let’s get started by stocking up on our essentials list.Make Your Office Supplies List – And Keep it StockedVacuum CleanerBroom & DustpanSponge MopPlastic BucketsRubber GlovesCleaning Supply CartTrash BagsDust TowelsNewspapers or Coffee Filters (for streak-free window cleaning!)Cleaning Towels – For General Surface CleaningBrillo PadsGlass cleanerWood PolishBleachLysol or Other Floor Cleaning SolutionsSoft-ScrubStainless Steel Cleaning Polish or PowderMold & Mildew CleanerDisinfectant WipesAir FreshenerKeep an Office Cleaning ScheduleIf you handle the cleaning of your office or work space yourselves (rather than contracting through a professional service), a cleaning schedule with required duties is helpful to post, along with the person responsible.Front & CenterPay special attention to the front entrance or reception area of your space, as that’s the area everyone sees and gives the first impression of your business.Sweep the area in front of your business and check for trash or debris daily.Keep the reception area free of clutter by stacking magazines or utilizing a wall rack.Dust tablesEmpty garbageClean windowsEnsure floors are swept and vacuumed or moppedIf you have plants in your reception area, keep them looking healthy – Nothing gives off a dingy and neglected vibe more than dead plants!Office Bathroom Cleaning: SimplifiedBathrooms are another area where cleanliness is absolutely non-negotiable. In fact, everyday, you should do the following:Wipe down sinks and mirrorsScrub toilet and toilet bowlsSweep and mop floorsRemove garbage from every recepticleRefill paper towels, toilet tissue, hand soap, etc.Zap Germs in Breakrooms & Office Kitchen AreasIn the workplace, breakrooms and kitchen areas are where employees go to unwind, grab a bite for lunch, and spread germs – yep, you read that right! Breakrooms and kitchens overflow with germs, so put these spaces at the top of your cleaning to-do list. Everyday, you should:Wash and put away dishesDiscard old food itemsClean countertopsToss expired foods and drinks in the refrigeratorWhat if I’ve Hired a Commercial Cleaning Professional?If you’ve hired a professional cleaning service to clean your office, make sure they’re covering the essentials. Often, companies provide an itemized list of their services with costs for you to determine how much you’d like to outsource. If they don’t have a list, provide them yours.Depending on cost, you may determine that some duties can be performed twice per week, for example, rather than daily (kitchens and bathrooms need to stay on the daily list!). Most cleaning services are flexible and will work out all the details with you. Make sure you get what you pay for, though. Inspect their work and hold them accountable for keeping their end of the contract.So whether you’re gloving it up yourself, or calling in the pros, there’s no better time than Spring to revisit your office cleaning supplies checklist. Good luck!
