Some Factors to Consider
Do You Share Office Space with Other Businesses?
One of the most important factors to consider is whether or not you share space with other El Paso businesses in the building. Even if you have your respective areas bordered off, dirt and debris can still travel easily amongst spaces.
Additionally, it is important to keep up with cleaning your office space. This way, you are not caught off guard by the other businesses’ cleaning schedules.
How Often Do You Have Visitors?
Keeping your El Paso office as clean as possible should be one of your top priorities when you have visitors regularly. If you don’t already, here are many reasons why you should clean when you have several visitors:
- Dirt brought in by heavy foot traffic
- Accumulation of dust and debris in unused meeting spaces
- Natural clutter made by staff daily
Size of Office Building
If your El Paso office space is relatively small, you could get away with office cleaning two times a month. But if you have a bigger office space, consider having cleanings done a bit more often.
To give you a better idea, think of your office space relative to the size of the average house. If your office is as big as a home, clean it as often as you would in a home. If it’s bigger, then make it a priority to clean it regularly more often.
How Big Your Staff Is
Just like you consider the size of your office, you also have to consider the size of your staff. For an office staff that amounts to 15 or fewer, it is recommended to clean the space two times a month. For a staff size of more than 15 people, it is highly recommended to clean more often. Think about it: the more people you have in your office, the dirtier the space will get, and much faster!
Where Are Employees Permitted to Eat?
If you have a specific room where your employees can eat, you can break up cleaning duties by room. For example, if it is only the kitchen or eating area that is dirty, you can have professionals clean these rooms more often and other rooms less often.
The Bottom Line
So, as we have mentioned already, a good rule of thumb for a cleaning schedule is to have the space deep cleaned at least once or twice a month. If you can handle smaller and easier cleaning tasks more often, do not hesitate to do so.
As El Paso business owners, we understand how difficult it can be to take care of additional tasks on top of your responsibilities, but the cleanliness of a workspace can say a lot about your business! Show your customers and partners what you’re all about with a clean office!
Basic Office Cleaning Tasks
If you do have the bandwidth to take care of basic cleaning tasks on your own, you can get started with the following:
- Quickly dusting desks, window sills, frames, and computer monitors
- Disinfecting highly touched surfaces (knobs, keyboards, computer mouses)
- Emptying all trash cans
- Cleaning kitchen countertops, sinks, and nearby surfaces
- Quickly sweeping work areas (under desks and meeting tables)
