Does your office break room need a little attention? Don’t let crumbs and sticky tables get you down Instead, contact a commercial cleaning company for your Chesapeake, Virginia Beach or Norfolk office.
The break room is often the smallest space in an office, yet it’s one of the hardest areas to keep clean because it’s where everyone takes a breather or enjoys their lunch.
On one hand, a break room means that less people will eat at their desks-resulting in cleaner workstations.
But on the other hand, the more people using the office break room, the more crumbs, stains, and trash.
Eco Green Office Cleaning knows your pain and the importance of a tidy break room or kitchenette. We’ll go the extra mile to keep this space clean and sanitized for your health and comfort. But, how do you keep your break room clean in between cleanings?
#1. Remove trash daily
Don’t leave food or food containers in the break room overnight. Left out food can cause unpleasant odors and bring un-welcomed pests. Put food scraps in the garbage disposal, if available, and take trash to an outside dumpster every one or two days.
#2. Disinfect tables and other surfaces
Purchase disinfecting wipes for the break room and post signs reminding employees to clean up after themselves. This includes removing all food items from break room tables and disinfecting tables before returning to work.
Also, post signs requiring employees to clean any microwave splatters, as well as spills in the refrigerator and on cabinets.
#3. Keep a supply of cleaning supplies
Encourage teamwork by maintaining a supply of cleaning supplies in the office janitorial closet and under the kitchenette sink. Items to have in the closet include a broom, a dust pan, trash bags, microfiber cloths and surface cleaners.
Even if you use Eco Green Office Cleaning for your Chesapeake, Virginia Beach or Norfolk office, having your own stock of supplies keeps your office in good shape in between services.
It also helps to create a break room cleaning schedule in between services, and then assign weekly tasks. For example, an employee can be responsible for taking the trash to the dumpster on nights that you don’t have janitorial services, whereas another person might be responsible for tidying up the bathrooms.
#4. Increase the frequency of office cleaning services
If your break room needs frequent attention, maybe it’s time to increase the frequency of your janitorial services. Instead of one cleaning a week, switch to two cleanings a week or more.
