Office computer cleaning tips
Category: Office Cleaning
Not only can staff become demoralised by a grubby working environment, they could also become ill if they are exposed to dirt and bacteria at their desks and in other parts of the office.
Computer cleaning can be carried out by professional office cleaners, and it is a good idea to have all of your company's gadgets properly sanitised once or twice a year.
That doesn't mean you can neglect them the rest of the time. Make sure your computers are considered as part of your regular Office Cleaning routine.
Keyboards and mice
Keyboards are a magnet for dust and crumbs, and they can be home to all manner of germs, especially if employees use them without washing their hands after eating or using the toilet.
To sanitise your keyboards, detach them from the computers and tip each one upside down, giving them a good shake to dislodge any debris hiding between and underneath the keys. You can then take a can of compressed air and blow out the rest of the dirt.
Antibacterial wipes can be used to clean the keys, or if you want to do more than just a quick job you can remove all of the keys and clean them individually before replacing them. You should also wipe down computer mice regularly to keep them germ-free.
Your computer monitors may appear clean, but take a closer look and there is probably dirt smeared all over the screens. As well as dust, they can also attract saliva and mucus as employees chat on the phone, eat their lunch and sneeze in front of their computers day after day.
A microfibre cloth and a basic cleaning solution is all that's needed to get rid of all that grime and restore your computer screens to their former glory.
Power down the machine, spray some solution onto the cloth and wipe gently, taking care not to use too much. You should also give some attention to any touch screen devices in your office, as they could be doubly dirty.
