Tips for Cleaning Your Home Office

Now that you are working from home, when was the last time you really cleaned your workspace? Just like the office/health room in your school, there are hundreds of microscopic hiding spots for viruses and bacteria. The crevices in your keyboard, the chair your children share with you, the TV remote, your laptop, your iPad, and even the refrigerator handle!

More than ever, keeping your workspace (and your home) clean is important to your health and the health of others. Here are a few tips for cleaning your home to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses:

  • Spray the cleaning product directly on a microfiber cloth. To keep yourself organized, you can even color code your cloths for each space in your home.
  • Clean in a linear motion. Move the cloth up, then move it back down. If you clean in a circular motion, you're just blending in the dirt and debris you're picking up.
  • Think about cleaning from high to low. This will help ensure that you don’t miss any key areas.
  • Focus on areas that your hands and fingers frequent. Areas like light switches, doorknobs, devices and appliance handles are all important to sanitize daily.
  • Don't forget to clean your personal items. You can use cleaning wipes for your bag, wallet, keys and phone.

If there is a suspected case of COVID-19 in your household, please review the CDC’s interim recommendations for cleaning and disinfection for households. They provide specific guidelines for cleaning hard and soft surfaces, electronics and linens.
