High-touch surfaces are any surfaces that many people have to touch multiple times a day. These areas should be cleaned at least once a day, preferably more, in order to help reduce the spread of germs in the office.
- Elevator buttons
- Door handles
- Telephone receivers
- Printer/copier buttons
- Restroom faucet handles
- Restroom paper towel dispensers
- Fridge door handles
The kitchen or breakroom is a breeding ground for microbes, and there are a lot of areas that often get missed because everyone in the office assumes that someone else is doing it.
- Fridge (inside and out)
- Coffee maker/kettle
- Dishwasher handles
Restrooms should be thoroughly cleaned once a day to ensure that they are kept hygienic and clean. Thorough cleaning means focusing on all of the following, not just a quick wipe down of fixtures.
- Stall doors
- Paper towel dispensers
- Hand dryers
- Soap dispensers
This is where employees spend most of their day, so it is important to focus on this area and make sure it is cleaned thoroughly at least once a week (in addition to daily cleaning of high-touch surfaces).
- Desk surfaces
- Shelves/filing cabinets
- Computers (screen, keyboard, mouse)
- Floor sweeping/mopping
- Carpet vacuuming
The reception/waiting room area is where guests make their first impression of your business. Make sure it’s a positive one by focusing on cleaning the following thoroughly at least once a week.
- Reception desk
- Coffee tables/side tables

Keeping an office thoroughly cleaned takes a lot of work and attention to detail–don’t try to do it all alone! Trust Anago of Vancouver to get the job done.
