Top 5 places in the office you may forget to clean

Top 5 places in the office you may forget to clean


When cleaning your office, there are many places that you may overlook and forget to clean. Though you may remember obvious places like your desk and kitchen counters, don’t forget these places.


1. Blinds and window sills

Workplace Clean


You may regularly clean your office windows, but do you remember to clean the blinds and the window sills? The blinds will catch all the unhealthy dust that is floating around the room, and the longer you leave them to clean, the harder it will be to clean the stains.


2. Under office furniture


Making sure that your office furniture is clean and presentable is often on top of people’s lists when it comes to cleaning the office. What a lot of people don’t realise is that underneath and behind the office furniture can collect a lot of dust and dirt.  

3. Food appliances


Food appliances are always used in the office, whether you use the microwave or the toaster. Food in the microwave can spill or explode, leaving behind a bad smell and nasty bacteria. If cleaning food appliances is not one of the first things you think of when cleaning, you should make sure that they are clean and sanitised more often.

Light Switches and touch points

Especially in the age of COVID, it’s more important than ever to make sure you consider the touch points around the office when cleaning. Some touch points in the office include light switches, handles for the doors and refrigerators and commonly used items.

5. Fire extinguishers


Hopefully you don’t have to use your fire extinguishers regularly in your office, if you do you should probably take a health and safety course! When fire extinguishers aren’t in use, they end up just sitting at their place on the wall, which ends up collecting dust as they are easily forgotten when cleaning.
