Whether we like it or not, the office is where most of us will spend most of our lives! The majority of our day is spent sitting at a desk between 4 walls…what we are about to reveal about those 4 walls might be harmful for those with sensitive stomachs (just kidding) but there are some scary facts you’ll want to be aware of…
Firstly, let’s educate you on just how many germs are hiding in your office… – Up to 10million bacteria can be found on your desk surfaces. – Up to 3,295 germs per square inch can live on your keyboard! – Up to 229,000 germs per square inch call your office bathroom tap handle their home – And up to 25,127 germs per square inch sit on your desk phone!
THE OTHER AREAS OF CONCERN If you had to guess, most would probably say the “office toilet seat” was the dirtiest place in your office, but this guess would be wrong! Number one on the list is in fact the tap/handle of the bathroom sink – ironic, isn’t it? This is usually used in aid of hygiene after using the bathroom! It really is key to have a hygienic space in which to work and even more importantly where clients can be invited. The appearance of your office leaves a lasting impression about your business or organization. Have a look at the rest of the areas of which to be wary…
- Basin tap handles
- Microwave door handles
- Refrigerator door handles
- Water fountain buttons/vending machine buttons/ elevator buttons
