Every office is unique and different, which means that every office also has different cleaning needs and requirements.
More frequent cleaning is required in offices with bigger offices compared to smaller offices with just a handful of employees.
Before you hire an office cleaning service, you need to prepare a checklist of cleaning tasks that your space needs every day, every week, and every month.
To give you a good idea, here is a short guide of common cleaning tasks you should add to your list.
Checklist for Daily Office Cleaning Tasks
When it comes to everyday cleaning of your office, there are several absolute minimum tasks that should be done for the space to stay sanitary and clean for all of your employees.
Your daily cleaning checklist must include communal office areas, such as the lobby or reception areas, workspaces including cubicles or individual offices, kitchen and break room, and washrooms.
The following are the most important cleaning tasks that should be carried out in office workspace, lobby, and reception areas
