Most people do not know what sydney office cleaning services entails. They report in the morning, find a clean office, and then leave in the evening because someone will take care of it. Just like any other building and structure, offices should be cleaned often to avoid dust accumulation, germs and other microorganisms.

A clean office is a comfortable space to work in where one focuses on important things rather than the foul smells, dirty window panes, dirty and stained carpet among other areas. While cleaning the office, one is prone to make mistakes that could lead to damages.

So, what are the 8 cleaning mistakes that could ruin your office?

Using Too Much Water

While cleaning the office, remember using too much water on the floor or carpet, which means the office needs more time to dry. Wet grounds can lead to mildew which can pose serious health issues. Too much water can also cause metallic items in the office to rust.

Offices also host a number of electrical systems that could be damaged if they get into contact with water. If water and electrical systems come into contact, it can lead to electrical shock which can cause serious health hazards.

Using Different Cleaning Products

Cleaning products are made of different components. It is important for you to read the ingredients before using the products. Some of the ingredients in the cleaning product can damage the surfaces of your furniture.

They may also contain fumes that are not good for your health. Mixing different cleaning ingredient can cause even more damage if not used carefully.

Using a Dry Rug to Dust

Using a dry cloth to dust surfaces will not only create static charges that will attract more dust particles, but it will also scratch the surface of the furniture. For the best result, consider using a soft microfibre cloth. A microfibre cloth will collect and hold all particles from the surface.

Vacuuming Everything

Some people assume that with a vacuum cleaner, all cleaning in the office is sorted. However, you may want to get other cleaning tools such as stain remover. This will help to keep the office neat all the time. A vacuum cleaner may not remove all dust particles on all surfaces.

Desks and tables need to be cleaned with a microfibre cloth before vacuuming the office. Also, remember to empty the vacuum bag after cleaning.

Scrubbing Spills

If you have a carpeted office, you should avoid scrubbing spills and spots. So many things can cause spotting in the office, such as tea, coffee, ink or grease. Scrubbing may lead to damage or cause the spill to go deeper into the fibre, and spread it further.

When accidental spillage occurs, you can place a towel on the stain then use a stain remover. If there are stubborn stains on your carpet consider getting a professional to help.

Spraying on Surfaces Directly

Contrary to what most people believe, spraying on a microfibre cloth will save on the amount of detergent you use and leave the surface cleaner for longer compared to spraying directly on the surface.

Dispose of Garbage Regularly and in the Right Place

This is one of the most common mistakes that employees commit. Leaving food scrubs and any other food waste in the bin can attract pests such as cockroaches and rats. Make sure the office bin is emptied regularly.

Garbage should also be disposed of in the right places. The office should have a garbage bin to ensure litter is not left anywhere which will always make it hard to clean and clear clutter in the office.

Rushing Through the Cleaning

People spend the most hours in a day in the office, therefore, the office should be given the same care that is given to cleaning the house.

Rushing through while cleaning the office will leave some blind spots that with time will accumulate in a heap of garbage. Ensure you give enough time for cleaning the office.

A clean office will allow people to enjoy a conducive environment for people to work in. It will also create a good first impression with the customers. However, finding the right people to clean your office thoroughly can be a task.
