Overlooked Areas for Cleaning in an Office

Office cleaning can be a complicated job and you need to have professionals who understand the scope of work to carry it out. Public places carry a lot of dirt and germs and you need to make sure they are cleaned and sanitised regularly to ensure the health and safety of the employees.

You need to carry out some research when selecting a company for office cleaning Canberra. You will need to discuss the requirements for the office and the areas that will require regular cleaning with the company. When cleaning, there are certain areas that can be overlooked. But if you work with a competent company, you will be able to come up with a checklist that specifies the frequency of cleaning for all areas of the office. There may be public areas that are cleaned daily and certain areas that will be cleaned on a weekly and monthly basis. Generally, the floors are given special attention when cleaning. But the walls and the ceiling tiles of the office will not be given the same attention. If there is wallpaper or decorative wall features in the office, there is a lot of dirt that can accumulate there. Also ceiling tiles can also carry a lot of dust if they are not cleaned regularly. Over time, if ceiling tiles are not cleaned, there can be stains that can be hard to get rid of.

Curtains and blinds can accumulate a lot of dust as well. While windows get a regular cleaning, curtains and blinds don’t get the same attention. And it can be a hassle to remove the blinds and install them again. But with a regular cleaning system, you will be able to have these cleaned at least once a month to prevent the build-up of dust. Upholstery can also be quite hard to clean. Most of the time upholstery gets overlooked especially the underside of office chairs. Furniture can collect a lot of dust and germs and this can affect the environment negatively especially in air-conditioned areas.

If there are ceiling or wall fans in the office, the fan blades can collect dust and become discoloured. Then there are vents and dust where dust can accumulate such as those installed in the ceiling, kitchens and bathrooms. This can contribute to unhealthy indoor air circulation. It can result in allergies and give rise to more illnesses. You also need to make sure that carpets and rugs are cleaned frequently to get rid of dust and allergens that get caught in the carpet fibres. There are many electronic appliances and equipment in an office environment such as microwaves, telephones, printers, computers, scanners, photocopy machines etc. These items are also commonly used by all the people in the office and can collect a lot of germs. There can be food particles and grime inside the microwave and there can be a lot of dust in between the nooks and crannies of equipment. This can affect the performance of the equipment as well. With regular cleaning, you will be able to use them for a longer time without having to undergo major repairs.
