Office Cleaning Schedule

Daily Cleaning Lists

Daily cleaning lists are comprised of the absolute minimum tasks that must be completed in order to keep an office clean and sanitary for office workers. Daily cleaning lists will address communal areas of an office, including the reception or lobby area, workspaces (offices or cubicles), washrooms and the break room or kitchen area.

Top daily cleaning lists for an office reception, lobby and workspace areas should include:

  • Vacuuming daily debris from all floor areas (including tile)
  • Disinfectant mopping of all hard floor and tiled areas
  • Empty waste bins, wash as needed and add new liners
  • Standard glass cleaner to wipe down all glass areas
  • Damp-wipe hard surfaces with mild disinfectant
  • Polish brass and bright work
  • Clean walls and painted surfaces as needed
  • Wipe down door handles, light switches and baseboards

By tidying your work space daily, you can keep it cleaner in the long run
