If you are managing an office, you might need to have it cleaned from time to time. Many managers will task their employees with cleaning their offices, thinking that it will save them money. That’s not actually the case, though. In most cases, you will end up spending more money by having your employees clean up the office beyond just quick maintenance. When you task your employees with cleaning your office, you are paying them to clean. You’ll then have to pay them to do the work that they would have done in that time. So, in a sense, you’ll be paying them twice. 

Since they’re not professionals, they’ll likely do a less effective job than professionals would. So, that means you’ve paid them like professional cleaners to do a job below the standard of professionals. That’s a poor financial decision. It’s a better option to hire professionals, but make sure they are ones who specialize in cleaning offices. 

Office Cleaners

Some maids explicitly specialize in cleaning offices. That’s particularly important because offices have some particulars that can make cleaning them difficult. For example, many offices are full of dozens of computers. Computers need to be cleaned with specific cleaners and specific practices. Computer fans tend to collect dust that needs to be cleaned out. It can be vacuumed out and/or it can be blasted out with compressed air. Cans of compressed air duster or air compressors aren’t necessarily standard tools for a maid. They are pretty standard for office maids, though. 

Furthermore, offices tend to have more paper and staples around the floor. If a maid runs a normal vacuum over dozens of staples, they might damage the vacuum. Oftentimes, maids who work in offices will bring vacuums that have magnets across the front. The magnets will pick up the staples before they can get sucked up in the vacuum. 


Professional cleaners who work in offices are going to be better than other cleaners at estimating how long or how difficult the job might be. That means that they’ll be able to give you a more accurate estimate of the time involved in the job. A better estimate will allow you to budget your time more effectively; it will also make it easier to schedule. Some cleaners like to work in an empty office; if you need to empty out your office, you don’t want to do that for longer than is absolutely necessary.
