Spring Clean Your Headset

Traditionally spring is the season to deep clean and organize, a coming out after a long, cold winter. At home, tasks might include scrubbing walls and baseboards, organizing canned and dry goods in the pantry, and deep cleaning carpets, rugs and furniture upholstery.

At the office, your headset could use a spring refresh, too. Need some ideas? Here are a few:

1. With a slightly damp cloth, avoiding contact with buttons, slots, or plug contacts:
    a. Wipe down your wireless base unit, cords from the phone or computer to the base unit, headband and boom arm of your wireless headset

    b. Wipe the cords*, headband, and boom arm on your corded headset

    c. Don't forget to clean your amplifier and cords*!

    d. Remove wax, sweat and dust build-up from your ear gels, too

    e. Specific headset models offer washable foam ear cushions, so check your user's guide for that information.
*handle cords carefully during cleaning, taking care to not pull on them

2. Replace:
    a. Ear cushions, foam or leatherette

    b. Microphone windscreen

    c. Ear gels
For a few dollars, these easy replacement items will help your headset look and feel brand new!

3. Headset Firmware:
Check the updates for your headset's firmware and make sure you have the most recent version. Each manufacturer offers unique software for their products, including Jabra's PC Suite, Plantronics' Spokes, and Sennheiser that help ensure your product stays up to date!

4. Organize Headset Paperwork:
Are the user's manual, quick start guide, and assorted paperwork that came with the headset filed together in an easy-to-find file? It's so easy to organize, yet many of us are guilty of throwing those helpful booklets in random places around our desk area, never to land in the same place. Set aside one designated file for these types of things.

Now that you've started the cleaning process, is it time to take a closer look at your workspace? Can you see the top of your desk? Are your files bulging with paperwork that isn't needed anymore? How about your computer files? Could your monitor use a scrubbing? Is it time to bring in the latest family photo? Cleaning, organizing, purging and updating might be what you need to re-engage and energize yourself in your job once more! Make it a contest with office mates to see who can create the cleanest work space.

Let us know if you have been inspired to clean your cubicle, and you could be entered for a chance to win ear cushions and microphone windscreens to help get you started!
