Your conference room sees a lot of action and that can lead to some issues: dirty surfaces and bad odours. Keeping the conference room clean doesn’t have to be difficult, but you do have to be diligent about cleaning it regularly.
If you want to keep your conference room cleaner than ever, here are five easy ways to achieve a cleaner workspace:
Empty Trash Cans
Want to avoid a conference room that smells “off” when you first walk in? The best thing to do is to take the trash out on a daily basis. This eliminates those old coffee cups, takeout containers, and other smelly items people may leave behind. Empty the trash cans and take the garbage to its proper disposal site instead of leaving the full bags to sit in the conference room overnight.
Take Care of Horizontal Surfaces
Even if your conference room is used daily, it can still accumulate dust. Take a few moments at the end of the day to quickly dust all horizontal surfaces. These can include tables, desks, window sills, and even the chairs. Use a damp wipe to eliminate rings from coffee mugs or other spilled food items on the table or desks.
Clean Floors Daily
In addition to getting rid of the trash, it is also important to prevent any musty smell from the carpets. Be sure to vacuum daily to prevent this. If odour persists after repeated cleanings, you can sprinkle baking soda or an air freshener on the carpet before vacuuming. Make sure not to choose something with an overwhelming scent, though.
If you are lucky enough to have hard surface floors in your conference room, you may not need to clean them daily. Mopping can be done just a couple of times each week with a mild detergent. On the other hand, you might want to sweep more regularly to sweep up crumbs and debris from shoes.
Technology can be quite a hot spot for bacteria to roam free. Clean these high-touch items with a damp rag and some mild cleaner. Make sure to hit all of the frequently touched items like phones, keyboards, and computers. If you have any other tech equipment, this is a good time to wipe it down as well.
Keep Cleaning Supplies Handy
The best way to keep your conference room clean is to encourage everyone to pitch in. Keep the basic cleaning supplies, such as cleaning wipes and paper towels in a convenient spot where everyone can access them quickly. You might opt to keep them on a rolling cart or in a small bin next to the coffee pot. Encouraging employees to clean up after themselves makes your job even easier.
