After spending at least five days a week at your office, it is most surely your second home (and if you are a real workaholic, congratulations, your office is your official home now!). Of course, we spend a big part of our everyday life at our workplace and this is how life is nowadays. Still, considering the amount of time spent at the office, why we don’t taking care of anything around as we do at home? Since your office is your second home, you most probably have to take the same care of it, to make it comfortable, to create a certain atmosphere that inspires you and helps you be more productive, to ensure every inch and every nook and corner are extra clean, every appliance, every electronic is taken care of and you can have that peace of mind that you work and spend a big part of your life in a healthy, safe and positive feeling place.

Well, yes, we guess you would like your workplace to be just as clean as your beloved home, but there is always not enough time and energy. With such a hectic working life we have to lead nowadays and so much stress because of the constant battle to be better than the others, to grow in the career, to make your boss satisfied, to improve, with so many overwhelming projects, meetings and tasks, you can hardly fit cleaning at the office in your priority list. Of course, the whole cleaning process is not your responsibility, you are at work in dealing with other kinds of problems and this is why professional janitorial services, business building cleaning and business building maintenance services exist for your comfort and for taking care of your workplace, office, business facility. However, there are still a few things you have to deal with within a few minutes every now and then in order to make sure that your day at the office is easier, more enjoyable and hassle-free as much as possible. And all that without any professional help!

Since the office is your second home and there are so many things that need to be done, you are most probably familiar with eating your breakfast and lunch at your desk….and over your keyboard! As much as we understand that this is the only way to take your daily dose of energy, otherwise you are going to strive to death, eating at your desk is a little habit that may leave your desk and keyboard a big mess and even worst – the big risk of spilling liquids over your laptop/keyboard.

So how to clean your keyboard whenever needed? Find a few minutes for a quick break and dealing with that. Start with shutting down the computer and detaching the keyboard. Then turn the keyboard upside down and use a can of compressed air to blow out all the dust and dirt collected. Shake gently! Clean the sides of the keys with a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol for extra sanitising. For even more thorough cleaning, you can remove all the keys and blow out any debris and dust accumulated, then wipe gently with a damp cloth (now moist!). If any type of fluid enters the keyboard during the process, or you accidentally spill coffee and water over it, then shake it gently upside down to remove the excess moisture, After that, you have to gently pour over a bag of white rice and wait for it overnight. Rice will absorb all the moisture.
