Most people know that public places are full of germs and often many will take the proper precautions. However, whether you are at your workplace or away, you often forget about the place being infested with germs. When a co-worker comes to work sick, it adds to the problem. This is why it is important to keep an office clean and free of germs or there is a risk of getting everyone sick. With flu season underway, it is important to ensure the office is free of germs. Baker Sandoval Cleaning will share some of the most germiest places in an office and why you may need the help of a professional cleaning service.
Germs in Break Rooms
Most people would assume that a bathroom would make for the number one area in a work place that has the most germs. This isn’t true. There are reports that show the break room has far more germs as well as the variety of germs in it. This is because of two major factors: the break room cooks and stores food and two, it has a high traffic of employees that come in and out, spreading their germs and illnesses. One area in an office building that requires a detailed cleaning is the break room.
Office Desk Germs
Number two of the top most germiest places is your desk. Not only is the desk full of germs but so is the keyboard. Due to the many germs that a person comes in contact with every day, they spread these germs by everything they touch. For those who work at a desk, your pens, stapler, and key board is teaming with germs. Unless you’re one of those people that keep hand sanitation cleaner handy and wash your hands each time you return to your desk, don’t be surprised that your desk is filled with germs. Desks should be kept cleaned and regularly sanitized. A professional cleaning service is aware that desks requires a thorough cleaning and they often sanitize desks and keyboards to ensure a healthier work environment.
Germs in Waiting Rooms
Third on the top list of most germiest place at offices is (nope still not the bathroom) the waiting room. Waiting rooms will contain more germs than many other areas in a work place. Due to the high traffic of visitors that often wait inside waiting rooms, waiting rooms are also teaming with germs. They too have a far wider variety of germs that often are the cause of many illnesses. Chairs and end tables have many germs but not nearly as many as magazines or other distraction materials. Waiting rooms often receive a detailed cleaning. Not only does it reflect your business, but it also helps to eliminate germs and viruses that may be exposed to the waiting room.
