DIRTIEST SPOTS IN AN OFFICE – WHAT MIGHT SURPRISE YOU
The dirtiest places in every office are those places you probably don’t even think about.
An office – just like any other commercial place – is filled with bacteria and other microorganisms. Your office floors, surfaces, walkways may look clean – even after cleaning them nightly – but if no one is disinfecting those hidden germ holders, your office ‘bug’ can keep spreading for weeks.
Here are some of the most common ‘germ holders’
Depending on the office setup, the computer location and the computer itself might be amongst one of the dirtiest places in an office. If your office is the type where each employee has their own computer and keyboard, it might be easy ensuring that the computer station doesn’t hold dirt but for workspaces that share equipment, the computer might be the dirtiest piece employees’ use.
The keyboard is especially dirty, as people breathe and sneeze on it all day, rarely washing their hands before sitting down to use it. Germs build up on the keys all day long, just waiting to transfer to the next unsuspecting worker who comes to use the computer.
The issue with a shared kitchen is that, while only a few surfaces are cleaned down every day, some parts only get disinfected once in a while and these parts have germs developing on them constantly. Worktops and sinks may get cleaned daily, yet the faucet and handles that people regularly touch are once in a while cleaned down.
The necessary tools of the office that are generally accessible by everyone represent a significant risk for the spreading of germs and bacteria. Office employees may be exposed to bacteria and dirt by all or some of the following sources:
- Remote controls
