Cleaning the break room at your business

MTO Janitorial can keep the break room at your Prescott business clean and sanitary to help keep your employees healthy.Everyone knows that bathrooms need sanitizing, office work spaces need to be as dust-free as reasonable, indoor air quality must be healthy, and public spaces for vendors and customers kept pristine. However, MTO Janitorial reminds Prescott business owners not to overlook the attention that break rooms need in order to keep employees healthy and safe.

Creating a cleaning list will help you keep track of cleaning duties on a consistent basis so that your break room gets clean and stays clean. The employee break room must be kept sanitary, especially if food preparation and storage is performed there. Here are some recommendations to ensure consistent sanitary conditions:

Daily Cleaning

  • Wipe down countertops, tables and chair seats
  • Wipe down sink and faucet handles
  • Wipe down microwave handles and inside
  • Wipe down hand towel dispensers
  • Wash coffee pots
  • Empty all trash containers
  • Sanitize appliance handles and knobs

Weekly cleaning

  • Wipe down all the window sills and doors to remove fingerprints and dust
  • Empty trash cans and replace liners
  • Vacuum and/or mop floors
  • Clean glass surfaces inside and out
  • Refill soap dispenser
  • Toss out unlabeled or perishable food at the end of every week

Monthly Cleaning

  • Clean the fridge inside and out
  • Clean the stove inside and out

These cleaning guidelines are to help Prescott business owners provide a healthy and safe break room for your employees. Don’t forget it’s a place to take a break. There is nothing relaxing about a mess. And, like most businesses, it’s not all that unusual for someone unexpected to drop by; so having a clean break room is important for that reason, too.
