Home Office Cleaning: Dusting, Lights, Seats, Windows

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basics when it comes to cleaning and maintenance of any home office space. More and more people are utilizing home offices for permanent or partial work needs, and ensuring this area stays clean and healthy is naturally very important.

At Healthy Homes Housekeeping, offices are just some of the numerous rooms and home areas we’re happy to assist Ogden clients with when it comes to maintenance cleaning, deep cleaning or any other kind of housekeeping need. While part one of our series went over themes like desks, computers and bookshelves, today’s part two will look at some other important office cleaning concepts and areas, whether you’re cleaning on your own or enlisting the help of our professionals.

Importance of Dusting

For every area of a given office, dust can an issue. Computers, bookshelves, desks and other furniture should all receive regular dusting to get rid of the buildup that can occur over time. This will not only make a home office look cleaner but also reduce allergens in the air and increase airflow for better overall health.

As you’re dusting various areas, don’t forget about hard-to-reach places like the tops of shelves and corners. Detail dusting often includes a feather duster or swab for extra tight spaces that are hard to reach with a cloth.

Light Fixtures and Windows

While they may not be the first areas you think of when it comes to office cleaning, light fixtures and windows are also important to keep clean. Dust can build up on bulbs and in hard-to-reach fixtures, as well as in window corners and sills. Cleaning these areas regularly will help ensure optimal lighting for the space and remove any potential allergens from the home office environment.

Seat Cleaning

Another important area to focus on when cleaning a home office is seating. This includes dusting, vacuuming and deep cleanings of any chairs or couches in the office space. Many times, upholstery will require extra care — such as spot-cleaning — that goes beyond basic dusting and vacuum work.

Phones, Remotes and Other Small Accessories

Most offices also come with a variety of small accessories and items, such as phones, remotes, chargers and other electronics. These should all be wiped down on a regular basis to avoid buildup of dust or dirt. Wiping everything off with a damp cloth and disinfectant can help keep the office environment clean as well as reduce risk of germs spreading around the space.
