Keep your employees healthy and happy with a regular office cleaning routine. A clean and organized office improves productivity and reduces sick days. A messy office doesn’t just look unprofessional, it can also distract colleagues and decrease motivation. Molly Maid is here to keep your office clean and organized with a printable office cleaning checklist.

Office Cleaning Tips
- Clear the clutter - Recycle, throw it away or put it back where it belongs. Use zip ties to keep cords coiled and organized.
- Dust away - Wipe dust from common areas with a damp rag or paper towel. Use compressed air to remove dust from hard-to-reach places like your keyboard crevices. Don’t forget light fixtures and fan blades.
- Glass duty - Spray a towel with glass cleaner and wipe away smudge.
- Disinfect - Hit all hard surfaces with sanitizing spray and a clean rag. Pay attention to high-germ areas like the vending machines, microwave, fridge handle, and water fountain buttons.
- Clear the cobwebs - Use a rag to remove cobwebs from every corner of the office. Put the rag on a broom handle for those high, hard-to-reach corners.
- Empty the fridge - Throw away old food and drinks to create more space. Perhaps this is a good time to establish some fridge rules; no one likes to find two-week old takeout.
- Wipe-down kitchenware - Clean cups, plates and appliances with warm water and soap. Take a few minutes to organize the cabinets.
- Restroom duty - Scrub the toilet and refill soap and paper dispensers. Wipe down the mirror and disinfect all hard surfaces.
- Empty trash/recycling bins - Properly dispose of trash bags and recyclables.
- Vacuum/sweep - Clear the dirt and debris off the floors (and furniture). Lift couch cushions and move furniture to clean underneath.
