Office kitchen appliances undergo ample wear and tear from daily use and are often neglected. They don’t get the thorough cleaning they need to ensure a healthy, bacteria-free office. These tips for cleaning office kitchen appliances will prevent illness from spreading around the office, and ensure your office kitchen appliances have a long lifespan.

Don’t Forget to Unplug

Begin by unplugging kitchen appliances to minimize safety hazards. This will reduce the chances of electrocution.

Wipe the Exterior

Office kitchen appliances are located in a high-traffic area and require frequent cleaning. Wipe the exterior of appliances with a damp cloth and warm, soapy water. Food-safe cleaning products are an alternative option. Exterior appliance cleaning stops bacteria and germs from lingering.

Wipe the Interior

Appliance interiors are just as important as the exteriors (or more). Microwaves, coffee pots, fridges, and blenders are examples of office kitchen appliances that require interior cleaning. Most appliances can be cleaned with a damp cloth and warm, soapy water or food-safe cleaning products. Refer to appliance manuals for the most accurate care information.

Check Instructions

All appliances come with instruction manuals to prolong their lifespan and ensure proper use. Most appliance manuals can be found online via an online search if the original manual can’t be found.

Sanitize & Disinfect

Sanitizing and disinfecting are a crucial cleaning method. Cleaning removes dust, dirt, and debris from surfaces. Sanitizing and disinfecting kills germs on surfaces and acts as a second layer of protection against bacteria and viruses. Together, these three cleaning processes are highly effective.

Create an Office Cleaning Policy

Office kitchen cleaning policies involve rules and regulations around kitchen etiquette. This includes things like washing dishes after use, emptying coffee grinds from the coffee maker, throwing out old food, covering food when microwaving, and putting away dishes after use. Office kitchen cleaning policies prevent unpleasant odours, unwanted pests, and looking like a tornado vandalized the office kitchen.
