The average person spends ⅓ of their life at work, so it’s important that their professional environment is clean and healthy. Discover six simple ways to keep your office clean, and consider enlisting help from the professionals at Misty Clean to assist you with the rest.

Organize Your Desk

Clutter is the biggest enemy of a clean desk. Gather the necessary supplies, like folders, and take a few minutes to organize your files and important documents. Not only will this help to decrease clutter, but an organized desk is proven to increase productivity.

Erase Your Keyboard

Your keyboard is subject to all sorts of germs. Whatever you pick up during the day is immediately transferred to your keyboard, and all of that bacteria can build up over time. Use a magic eraser to scrub your keyboard clean, but ensure that you squeeze all of the water from the eraser first.

Wipe the Entirety of Your Desk (Except Your Computer Screen)

Using a microfiber cloth, wipe all of the parts of your desk and computer, except for the screen. Ring the excess moisture from the cloth first, so that water doesn’t drip into the screen and damage it.  

Sweep Your Chair Mat

If you work in a carpeted building, chances are you have a plastic mat underneath of your chair. If so, sweep it at least once a week. You can also wipe it off with a damp rag if you don’t keep a broom in your office.

Care For Your Office Plants

If you have office plants, gently wipe their leaves with a damp cloth once a week. Dust can develop quickly on plants, leaving them in an unhealthy condition.

Tend to Your Headphones

We all love to listen to our favorite playlists and podcasts while at work, but ensure that your headphones are hygienic. Wipe off our earbuds or headphones with a cloth, then disinfect them by with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol.
