Establishing a schedule of dusting and disinfecting your office regularly will help to improve the health and well-being of your employees and customers. After all, nothing creates a negative impression of a company more than accumulated dust on furniture and desks. Dusting keeps the furniture clean, the environment healthier and helps prolong the life of the furniture.
Check the air vents and regularly clean them to ensure that the ventilation system is collecting dust properly and that your workplace remains clean and healthy. It is also important to make sure that you dust less obvious areas where dust can collect, such as light fixtures, shelves, blinds and windowsills.
Only Use Microfiber
If you have never used microfiber cloths, then it is time to start. Microfiber is made of synthetic fibers that are electrostatically charged and is the perfect tool for regular maintenance. Microfiber is very efficient, highly absorbant and effectively removes pollens and other irritants. Go over surfaces with a clean microfiber cloth and appropriate cleaning product.
Take it down
For obvious reasons, dusting is a dreaded task for most people. However, for the health and appearance of your office, dusting should be done regularly and thoroughly. Before dusting your desk and other flat surfaces, remove all items so you do not miss a spot or waste time moving around objects. This is the perfect time for a quick declutter.
Top to bottom
With all objects out of the way, start from the highest point and work to the lowest point so that any dust that falls down can be wiped clean or vacuumed once the dusting is complete.
Suck it up
Did you know that most professional cleaners use vacuums to dust the tops of doors, baseboards, floors and window blinds? It is the perfect way to eliminate any dust that fell down while dusting. Many dust cleaners add a protective layer over surfaces. To reduce the amount of dust particles in the air, use a vacuum cleaner with HEPA filters. HEPA filters trap more dust and reduce the amount of dirt and microscopic dust mites. Good news for people with allergies.
