Cleaning Tips for Your Office

At Cool to Clean Ltd we talk a lot about the importance of a clean office space. It has been proven that staff who are surrounded by a tidy environment will increase their productivity and efficiency throughout the day. This is probably because they spend more time worrying about their work than keeping their own space clean. It is also a great advert for your business to have a clean office space. It tells visiting clients or customers that you are a company who cares about its image. If you want to look be seen as professional it is important that where you work reflects that in how it is presented.

The easiest way to achieve this kind of cleanliness is to hire the services of a professional contract cleaning company. At Cool to Clean we have access to the latest cleaning technology, as well as a team of dedicated staff who have been trained with the most up-to-date cleaning techniques.

We are always looking for clever ways to keep every part of your office clean and guarantee a quality finish. Below are a few of the more traditional techniques we have come across, a selection that you and your staff can use during the day before your cleaner arrives.

Eucalyptus Oil

This magical elixir comes from the leaves of the eucalyptus tree, which are dried, crushed and then distilled to produce an oil ready to be diluted and distributed. Found in products like Vicks Vaporub, it is commonly used to clear chest congestion and ease coughs. Not just great for health though, it can also be used to remove the sticky residue left by stickers after you remove them from windows. A dash of eucalyptus and they are squeaky clean again.


Has your office kitchen microwave experienced one too many reheated dinners and exploded soups? The easiest way to get rid of the food stains inside is to take vinegar, mix it with water and place them in a bowl. Set the microwave to heat for 10 minutes with the bowl inside and hey presto you are clean. Simply wipe down the surfaces and away you go.

Hair Spray

Sometimes, though lack of concentration, we can all get a little carried away with our market pens and find ourselves drawing on a surface that isn’t necessarily designed for ink. If your desk has received this treatment then try a little hairspray on the stain and simply wipe away. Fresh looking desk and a shiny clean surface is assured.

Bicarbonate of Soda

The go-to cleaning product for housewives across the UK. Having a small pot in the office may feel strange but can be a real stain saver. If your office is anything like ours then tea is regularly being poured and occasionally spilt on your carpets. A simple tip is to take a little bicarb mixed with water and gently rub into the stain. It may need repeating a few times but it certainly beats forking out for a new carpet!
