How to Deep Clean Your Office in 4 Steps


Columbus may not be synonymous with the fast pace of other big cities (hi, New York City), but for business owners, time is always a precious and fleeting commodity, no matter where they're located.

Your days could always use a few more hours to meet with clients or plan for the business's future, so chances are you don't want to spend a minute more on cleaning your Columbus office than you absolutely have to. Good thing you can get a high caliber of cleanliness in these four steps.

Deep Office Cleaning Step #1: Dust Surfaces, Nooks, and Crannies

Move from left to right around the office to make sure you don't overlook anything and so you don't redo areas you've already cleaned. Dust surfaces with a microfiber cleaning cloth, including…

  • Hard-to-reach areas, such as the tops of shelves and ceiling fans.
  • Corners and vent covers where dust gets trapped.

If your employees and clients suffer from allergies, this part of the process is especially important. Dust buildup hurts your office's air quality and can make the building feel stuffy.

Deep Office Cleaning Step #2: Disinfect the Hot Spots

Any surface that comes in contact with food or hands is going to have a significant amount of germs and bacteria (read more about that here: "The Secret Dirtiest Spots of Your Office"). That's why you'll want to disinfect…

  • Keyboards.
  • Phones.
  • Sink faucet handles.
  • Door handles.
  • Break room countertops.

Plus, the office fridge shelves should get a good scrub down about once a month to rid them of bacteria from spoiled food. Lastly, don't forget to clean and disinfect the bathroom!

Deep Office Cleaning Step #3: Freshen Up

A surefire way to get rid of germs and bad smells? Get rid of the source!

  • Throw out spoiled food.
  • Empty the rubbish and recycling bins.

As a bonus, spritz some green air fresheners in room corners and high-traffic spaces. For odor-neutralizing tips, read "Two Men & A Vacuum Naturally Remove Odor from Your Home."

Deep Office Cleaning Step #4: Vacuum Like You Mean It

Vacuuming does more than simply rid your floors of dirt and debris, especially if your office has carpet. When you use the appropriate vacuum cleaner, it can also…

  • Remove allergens and dust that settle into the fibers of the carpet.
  • Improve the air quality in your building.
  • Promote the health of your employees and visitors.

Be sure to vacuum the whole area, including underneath and behind furniture. Pay special attention to high-traffic areas (doorways, meeting areas, and under desks) where dirt collects.
