I hesitate to use a sports metaphor here, but in line with Mark's first paragraph, when you've got editors doing housekeeping, in baseball terms, you have your pitchers selling peanuts in the stands. Not a great idea, and not cost-effective - however - in terms of things such as cleaning the monitors, and keeping the editing work area policed for empty bottles, food wrappers, etc., they should indeed be expected to keep their specific work area clean.

Depending on how dusty and dirty the air is in your area, it might be a good idea to do some daily light dusting (I have always kept a small 1.5 inch paintbrush hanging near audio boards, keyboards, and control surfaces for regular daily intricate dusting that you don't want a vacuum cleaner near) in the technical work area. If this is done daily, by you or by each shift of editors, the work will be very light, and you won't run the risk of having your monitors cleaned with Bon-Ami.
