Office Germ Hot Spots

Posted On: December 30th, 2018 Author: Stephen Matthews

In this post, I am going to show you the office hot spots that germs accumulate from by Clean Group. Keep reading.

We often think that germs aren’t present if our office desks are free from foot bits, dust and organised. However, under ultraviolet light, the surface reveals a different story. Although there may be less, they are still there nonetheless. To effectively reduce the number of germs and bacteria, we will need to wipe down our office equipment and benches with proper cleaning products that prevent the spread of such.

Bacteria and germ are mainly found on surfaces with Flavin (which can be found in Vitamin B). Identifying where germs and bacteria are commonly found, we can eliminate the health dangers that they pose. Not only that but they also have an impact on the productivity and absenteeism in the office.

 

Office Germ Hot Spots

 

Where are germs found in the office?

Desk

Are you one of the many people that bring food back to your office desk during lunch? This is a dream for germs. There is no doubt that after spending a whole day at your desk, there will be a lot of activity and space for germs to be present. In fact, there it is estimated that more than 10 million bacteria is present on your work desk. That’s 400 times more than the average toilet seat.

The next time that you sit at your office desk, consider minimising food bits around the desk and become familiar with disinfecting wipes to clean the office desk. Of course, commercial office cleaners are also there to assist you with reducing the number of dirty bacteria that is present at the end of the day.

Carpet

There is no surprise that the office carpet is a major attraction for germs and bacteria. Your commercial carpet is prone to receiving a high level of foot traffic daily. Outside microorganisms and bacteria can enter your commercial space and spread around.

That is why there are many benefits to getting a professional commercial carpet cleaning service to minimise and eliminate as much germ as possible from your office carpet. They have the right tools to completely target the germ deep down in the fibres and eliminate them. While doing so, the cleaners are also maintaining the carpet’s integrity by using effective yet gentle methods to prolong the life of your carpet.

Printer

In every office, there is a common and shared printer that everyone uses to print out their documents. Where there is sharing, there is a chance that someone did not thoroughly wash their hands before using the printer. This is where germs are easily spread and carried around the office. All it takes is for one person to start the spreading of germs. Printers nowadays are high tech and can be easily navigated by a touch screen. It is important to keep the screen clean at all times to minimise germs. Any commercial cleaner in the industry knows this and will always maintain a hygienic printer in the office.

Keyboard and mouse

Without a doubt, the most touched item in any office is the keyboard and mouse and therefore making it a hot spot for germs and bacteria. How often is it that you take the time off to clean your keyboard and mouse? We don’t mean simply wiping it with a wet wipe. Thoroughly cleaning it with the right products and using effective cleaners is the only way to completely ensure that germs are adequately diminished.
