Keeping a clean, healthy and hygienic office is an important aim for many companies. But sometimes, the more pressing matters of day to day business can get in the way, leading to cleaning tasks being forgotten or delayed.

Office kitchen cleaning mistakes to avoid
- Using the wrong amount of cleaning product- whether you use too much detergent, or too little, can have a big effect on the end result of your cleaning. Too much bleach for example can linger on food preparation food surfaces, which will make your staff ill. While not using enough, could leave harmful bacteria like salmonella and E.Coli behind. To avoid this, you should follow all preparation instructions correctly.
- Using the wrong cleaning supplies- most companies buy cleaning products in bulk, and leave them in the supply room. One of the most common cleaning mistakes that are made when it comes to the office kitchen, is that staff are using the wrong cleaning supplies for the wrong tasks, or the same cleaning supplies for all rooms. This can result in serious cross contamination, from one area of the office to another, like the toilets to the kitchen for example. One way to avoid this is to make sure the cleaning products are clearly labelled, and to provide staff training.
