Cleaning hacks from janitorial services

Janitorial services in Charlotte and Kannapolis, NC, can easily help keep your office clean and organized. There are useful hacks you can do to help fix stuff around the office when assistance from hired janitors is not available at the moment you needed a task completed.

Desk hacks

It is easier to organize small items on your desk using a spice rack; this way, you can have separate containers for each small item yet do not have to worry about these collecting some dust because the makeshift organizer has covers.

Make sure to clean your keyboard daily using a small paintbrush. You can also use scotch tapes or the sticky part of the post-it notes to clean out the areas that are hard to reach. Another excellent option is to use cotton buds to clean in between the keys. Commercial office cleaning can also do the cleaning for you.

Binder clips are not just useful on your documents but can also keep cords around the desk as neat as possible. If there are bulky cords underneath your desk, simply hang a small kitchen basket to keep these organized and supported.

Cardboard boxes can be used to organize your drawers. Ask Charlotte and Kannapolis, NC, janitorial services if they have some extra, unused springs. These can be quite useful for organizing small items such as envelopes and notepads.

Office food and dining hacks

Plastic wraps with ‘mold’ design can keep someone from stealing your lunch. Of course, there is always the option of bringing a mini-fridge for your desk; this could hold a sandwich and some soda cans.

So that you will not spill drinks on your documents, you can buy special cup holders such as the ones you can clip at the edge of the table.

If your office provides brewed coffee but you want to drink it cold, simply place some ice cubes inside the glass. For a quicker cooling, you can also place ice cubes and some water in a container, then put the glass with the coffee inside. Of course, you have to make sure the water from the container does not get inside the coffee cup or glass.

Janitorial services can help you remove coffee stains from the tables and countertops using some baking soda. For commercial stripping and waxing, you can ask your service provider if they also offer this kind of cleaning service.

Other office hacks

Commercial cleaning services staff might tell you that the ink cartridge you are throwing out still have plenty of ink inside. Tampering with the ink cartridges to pour the ink into other containers can be messy. To save the ink, try to find the reset button on the cartridge. Click on it using the tip of a paper clip.

As for the large containers on water dispensers/coolers, you can replace them with trendy containers or wrap them with cool prints or washi tapes/ribbons. That will also brighten up the space and make an interesting conversational piece with your officemates.
