How to Clean an Office

Whether you’re cleaning your home office or tidying up your desk at work, Molly Maid wants to help you keep your office tidy, clean and disinfected. Learn how to organize an office and clean an office from our cleaning experts.

Cleaning Your Office

While sitting at a desk over sustained stretches of time, we do a lot more than just work. We chew, sneeze, cough, touch and spill – day after day. It’s no wonder that home offices quickly become a microbial zoo. On top of the germs lies the clutter and mess from our busy lives that needs to be organized and cleaned.

  1. Use a damp microfiber cloth to wipe down all surfaces. Remove your papers, file folders, calendars, stapler and other objects so you can wipe down your desk. Don’t overlook areas like power strips behind your desk, fan blades, window sills, the top of your monitor or the tops of picture frames.
  2. Work top to bottom. You should alternate between the upholstery brush, narrow attachment, and carpet attachment to thoroughly vacuum each and every surface on your desk and in your office. Pay attention to the areas you dusted, and vacuum up any loose dust the cloth didn’t capture.
  3. Sitting at our desks, we do lots and lots of touching, creating new micro-bacteria colonies with each keystroke, mouse click and phone call. Disinfect that mouse and office phone: the keypad, headset, mouthpiece, the whole thing.
  4. Put a reminder on your calendar to clean and organize your desk weekly or bi-weekly. A cleaning routine will make it easier next time. Even better, keep disinfectant wipes near your desk so you can give everything a quick wipe-down between cleaning days.

How to Organize an Office

  • Create two “zones” on your desk: one for computer work, the other for non-computer work.
  • Every office desk needs a place where items that don’t have a home yet can live. Dare we say “junk drawer”? Use a document tray or a file drawer for these items instead of a pile in the corner.
  • Use zip ties to bundle electrical cords together and keep them from creating a cord nest.
  • Use stacking document trays to free up space and provide separation for documents: one for mail, one for documents that need signatures, one for documents that need to be filed, etc.
  • Go vertical. When you run out of desk or drawer space, free up space by using walls to hang shelves or whiteboards.

How to Clean a Keyboard

  1. Shake it out! You may want to do this outside or over a trash bin.
  2. Use a can of compressed air to force the remaining dust and food particles out from behind the keys.
  3. No canned air? Try folding a Sticky Note in half with the sticky part facing out. Run it through the cracks on your keyboard to collect debris.
  4. Dip cotton swabs in alcohol, and swipe them between the keys.
