How to keep your desk clean
The coronavirus pandemic has brought cleaning to the forefront of all of our minds. Whether you are working in an office, shared workspace, home office or from your kitchen table it is important that you keep your desk sanitised and germ free.
Here are some handy tips to help you keep your workspace clean:
1: Start with the surface of your desk. Try and use an antibacterial or virucidal cleaner and wipe with a damp cloth. If you don’t have these to hand you can use a solution of white wine vinegar and water. Work from top to bottom to make sure you reach all of the surface. Don’t forget the corners.
2: It is important to clean your telephone regularly, particularly if you are in a shared workspace. Spray virucidal cleaner onto a microfibre cloth and wipe gently. Remember to clean telephones after each use as these can often be shared amongst colleagues. Don’t forget to wipe both the base and the headset.
3: The IT equipment you use on a daily basis can harbour a lot of germs, particularly your keyboard. Tilt your keyboard upside down to remove any dust and debris from between the keys. You can use a vacuum cleaner to remove any other crumbs or debris. Use a microfibre cloth with a virucidal cleaner to wipe the keys, if you use too much solution it may soak under the keys and damage the keyboard. Remember to switch off and unplug all electrical equipment before cleaning. A screen wipe will help to keep your laptop or monitor bright and dust free.

4: The easiest way to maintain cleanliness is to keep your desk tidy. Make sure you regularly file away all that paperwork and throw any rubbish away. The tidier a desk is, the easier it is to keep it clean and sanitised.
