The Ultimate Commercial Office Cleaning Checklist

The Ultimate Commercial Office Cleaning Checklist

A commercial office cleaning checklist can help your office stay pristine year-round.

Cleaning the office has always been one of the most important tasks in maintaining an office building. Cleaning regularly and thoroughly ensures that tenants work in sanitary and humane conditions and avoid falling sick, which is sometimes known as “Sick Building Syndrome.” While the importance of a clean office might be rudimentary to some, how to keep it well-maintained is another issue. With a handy checklist, all office managers and owners will have all the bases covered every time. Below is the ultimate commercial office cleaning checklist, which North Arundel Contracting can help you accomplish.

Lobby Area

The lobby or reception room is where more traffic occurs every day. Not only do employees come through here, but business partners and customers too. The start of the commercial office cleaning checklist is as follows:

  • Clean front doors on both sides, especially glass ones
  • Clean, vacuum, and straighten doormats, if any
  • Wipe down reception counters, desks, phones, computers, etc. with disinfectant
  • Vacuum and clean the flooring
  • Vacuum and clean the chairs, side tables, and coffee tables, if any
  • Straighten out coffee or side table contents, like magazines
  • Straighten out decor
  • Take out the trash and replace liners


Work spaces are where your employees spend most of their hours. 

  • Wipe down doors and doorknobs
  • Dust all surfaces
  • Wipe down desks, chairs, keyboards, and other desk equipment
  • Disinfect cabinetry
  • Take out the trash and replace liners
  • Sweep and vacuum floors and deep clean flooring routinely
  • Wipe windows
  • Vacuum blinds or shades
  • For an even deeper clean, consult with an HVAC professional

Break Room

A commercial office cleaning checklist must not forget the break room, possibly the room most at risk for messes.

  • Consult with your teammates to clean out the fridge and keep desired items
  • Clean out the coffee maker
  • Wipe down the microwave oven
  • Disinfect the countertops and cabinets
  • Wash the sink and the faucet
  • Sweep and mop the floor
  • Wash dirty dishes and towels
  • Organize dishes, cutlery, and other equipment 

Commercial Office Bathrooms

If there is one more major area that offices need to keep clean for everyone’s health and user experience, it is the restroom.

  • Disinfect sinks, faucets, and counters
  • Mop the floor with disinfectant solution
  • Wipe down mirrors 
  • Wipe down stall doors, walls, and toilets
  • Clean the toilets thoroughly
  • Take out trash and replace liners
  • Refill paper products and hand soap
  • Wipe down the doors and handles
