3 Office Items You Should Clean Between Cleaning Company Visits, Austin, Texas

Having a commercial cleaning service come by the office once a month is a great way to thoroughly clean work spaces. However, there are certain items you need to clean more regularly. These pieces of office equipment are essential to most people’s day. When neglected, they’ll slow down your workday and make the office unpleasant, so stop what you're doing for a quick once-over between commercial cleaning visits.

3 Office Items You Should Regularly Clean

1. Computer Keyboards

commercial-cleaning-jk-commercial-cleaningYou touch a lot of things throughout the workday, all of which carry germs. If you have a computer-based job, these germs ultimately end up on your keyboard. Slowly, you’ll notice the keys fading or having grime build on them, and dirt, crumbs, and dust will eventually find their way into crevices. This can be especially problematic for laptops. To keep things clean, blast your keyboard with a bottle of air duster every few days and wipe down the surface.

2. Trash & Recycling Bins

Areas around trash cans quickly become dirty after a few spills and shouldn’t be neglected until the next corporate cleaning service visit. If you notice stains, drip marks on the wall, or small piles of crumbs, take a moment to clean them up. These will eventually attract insects and create unpleasant smells. The same is applicable for personal trash cans at your desk; they should be emptied and cleaned regularly.

3. Computer Towers

Dust is the primary killer of computer equipment, and desktop towers receive a lot of neglect. They’re usually hidden beneath desks and are rarely moved. As dust piles up and gets inside, it can clog the fan, cause parts to overheat, and mess with connections on the motherboard. You can’t afford to deal with a computer malfunction, so blast your tower with air duster now and then. If you aren’t familiar with computers, ask an IT person to help you.
