Five Office Cleaning Mistakes You Must Avoid
When it comes to cleaning your office, you must not become a little lazy, because cleanliness has an impact on your brand image. Plus, it has an impact on the performance of your employees.
Just as cleaning is important to your office, doing it carefully and comprehensively is also very important, to avoid trouble with the cleaning equipment, to protect your eyes and skin, and to get a thoroughly cleaned office.
In this blog, we will discuss five common office cleaning mistakes that you should avoid for safe and quality cleaning.
1. Not reading the cleaning equipment manuals
Every cleaning product manufacturer provides instructional manuals with their products. They hire technical writers to develop those manuals. They don’t do this to increase their investment in their product production – they do it because they know manuals are important to read for every user. Most of the accidents that happen while dealing with cleaning equipment happen because their users don’t consider the manuals worth reading and throw them away. Ignoring the manuals can decrease the life of the equipment as well. You must read the manuals carefully before using any cleaning equipment. If you have any doubts, call the manufacturer’s customer helpline number to ask your questions.
2. Not wearing gloves and goggles while cleaning
You use different cleaning products, and some of them may include harmful chemicals, exposure to which can cause reactions to your eyes and skin. So, if you don’t put on gloves, you knowingly invite trouble for your eyes and skin.
3. Washing the windows in sunlight
You should not clean the windows in direct sunlight. Cleaning the windows in the sunshine affects the window’s shine and clarity. The cleaner will leave unsightly streaks on the window glass. Always clean the windows before the sun hits, or after the sun passes, or when the weather is cool and cloudy.
4. Cleaning everything with the same equipment
You cannot apply the same cleaning equipment and product for everything. You should first know what cleaning product and equipment is required to clean different areas in your office.
5. Not paying attention to door and window knobs
Door and window knobs are the places that attract the least attention and people often don’t clean them. If you don’t clean them, they will stick to your hands when you or somebody else opens the windows or doors, and they will become extremely germ-laden.
Avoid these cleaning mistakes mentioned above, and if you don’t want to take a risk and want to get the best quality cleaning, you should hire an experienced office cleaner for the job.
