Facility Cleaning Tips: Your Office Desk

facility site contractors facility cleaning

Using disinfectant wipes is a great way to sanitize frequently used items such as staplers, tape dispensers, scissors, pens, and other office accessories.

Today’s facility cleaning tips focus on office desks. It’s shocking how much bacteria end up on desks. For that reason, hiring a professional company to clean your facility is vital. Here are a few beneficial recommendations. 

Facility Cleaning: Cleaning the Desk and Its Accessories 

Start with the items that sit on top of your desk. Wash coffee cups and reusable water bottles daily. You can use the workplace’s dish detergent to wash these items or take them home every day and run them through the dishwasher. 

Also, use disinfectant wipes to sanitize frequently used items such as staplers, tape dispensers, scissors, pens, and other office accessories. It might even be necessary to clean the pen holders with soap and water. Disinfect the desk surface by removing all items or moving them to the side. Wipe the entire surface with disinfectant wipes thoroughly, and wait for the solution to dry before moving the desk items back in place. 

Cleaning the Keyboard, Mouse, and Screen

It can be challenging to move a desktop out of the way to clean, particularly if it has a lot of wires. Still, it’s best to keep such a frequently touched surface and its accessories sanitized. Power the device down, unplug the keyboard and mouse, and then follow these steps: 

  1. Clear loose crumbs by shaking the keyboard upside down
  2. Clear remaining debris by spraying compressed air
  3. Squeeze out extra liquid from disinfectant wipes to avoid dripping moisture that can cause damage. Clean the keyboard with a disinfectant wipe and pay attention to the space bar, and enter key
  4. Let the keyboard dry entirely before using it. 
  5. Clean the computer screen using a microfiber cloth dampened with mild dish soap and a warm water solution.
  6. Ring out the cloth with clean water, squeeze out additional moisture, and wipe again, removing the sudsy residue 

Cleaning the Desk Phone 

Like cell phones, desk phones can become germy. Clean the desk phone daily and wash or sanitize your hands as much as possible throughout the day. Unplug the phone and wipe down all ear and mouth pieces, cords, and buttons. Disinfectant wipes also apply to this facility cleaning tip.
