Cleaning Electronics Around the Office

It probably hasn’t escaped your attention that electronic devices around the office are insatiable dust magnets. Office cleaning in Stockport is always complicated by the endless array of electronics the average office plays host to.  No matter what you do, you seem to find yourself dealing with dust on a near-constant basis.  Even those who offer professional office cleaning in Stockport tend to struggle when it comes to keeping electronics clean.

Nevertheless, it’s a job that must be done. Whether you handle your own office cleaning in Stockport or hire the experts, you’ll still need to play your part.  The reason being that when it comes to keeping electronics clean and dust-free, little and often is the key to success.

Nowadays, the average office is populated by dozens, maybe even hundreds of devices. Smartphones, computers, tablets, telephones and all manner of other electronics. All of which not only gather dust, but often tend to be shared between multiple employees. Which in turn means that your own strategy for office cleaning in Stockport should also take hygiene into account.

If you could actually see the germs and bacteria all around you, chances are you’d do more to get rid of them!

So with this in mind, here’s a quick rundown of just a few tips for better office cleaning in Stockport where electronics are concerned:

Smartphones and Tablets

First up, these modern-day essentials tend to be among the most revolting of all office electronics. That being, when it comes to the quantity of germs and bacteria they harbour. Think about it – how often do you wash your hands before touching these devices?  How many others may have touched them with filthy hands?  Have you ever taken them to the bathroom with you? Always use approved cleaning wipes to tackle smartphone and tablet screens, in order to avoid causing any damage. Use antibacterial wipes to keep them clean and hygienic throughout the day.


It’s also worth thinking about how much dirt and bacteria may be accumulating in your keyboard. On a daily basis, every keyboard around the office should be treated to a relatively intensive clean. Which is actually pretty easy to do.  Simply hold your keyboard upside down and shake out as much loose dirt and dust as possible. After this, take a can of compressed air and blast out any other dust and grime still stuck between the keys. Finish things off with an antibacterial wipe, in order to kill as many germs and bacteria as possible. You might also want to think about following this process before using someone else’s keyboard – or perhaps sharing your own keyboard with others.


The average office PC attracts dust and grime like almost nothing else imaginable. Unfortunately, the dirt that accumulates around your computer is not only unhygienic, but can cause operational issues and even breakdowns.  The two most important tools at your disposal for keeping your computer clean are a microfiber cloth and a can of compressed air. The more frequently you give your computer a quick wipe and blast, the less dust and grime will accumulate inside and out. Under no circumstances should you ever use wet or even damp cloths with these kinds of electronics, for obvious reasons.


Like mobile devices with touchscreens, it’s important to only ever use approved products to clean computer screens. That said, the back of any monitor can be cleaned in the same way as the computer itself, using a microfiber cloth and a can of compressed air. The easiest way of taking care of monitor cleanliness is to give the screen a wipe on a regular basis, rather than allowing grease and dirt to accumulate over time.


Last but not least, taking care of telephones plays a big role in effective office cleaning in Stockport. The reason being that not only are telephones routinely smeared with whatever the workforce has on their hands, but they are also used in close proximity to our faces throughout the day. Which is, suffice to say, a recipe for disaster where germs and bacteria are concerned. Disinfecting wipes or surface cleaners should be used to thoroughly clean all telephones on a regular basis. Contrary to popular belief, simply giving them a quick wipe at the beginning and/or end of the day isn’t enough to keep the office safe.
