Disinfecting the Workplace. Why is this so important?

Disinfecting the Workplace. Why is this so important?

Everyday interactions in the workplace such as an office, warehouse, manufacturing plant, etc., can easily cause the spread of germs and bacteria for an unhealthy work environment. According to a 2014 study, a virus sample placed on a doorknob and tabletops in an office spread to nearly 60% of the workers and visitors within just 4 hours. Frequently and thoroughly cleaning high-touch surfaces, like door handles, phones, and desks will prevent germs from spreading and causing widespread illness.

Hiring a professional cleaning company like DRC Cleaning Solutions to disinfect the workplace is the best way to maintain a healthy work environment, ensure productivity, and keep business operations running smoothly.

5 of the Germiest Places at Work

No employee wants to work in a dirty workplace. According to a 2017 Healthy Hand Washing Survey, 89% of Americans believe the condition of a workplace restroom is one indicator of how a company values its workforce.

1. Restrooms could be an entirely separate topic, as one of the germiest places of them all. Regular cleaning of restrooms and other key areas in the workplace will ensure that hygiene remains at the forefront and does not go unnoticed by employees and visitors.

2. Whether your desk phone is for your own personal use or used by several employees, the handle, buttons, and receiver may hold more than 25,000 germs per square inch.

3. Water fountains can hold up to 2.7 million bacteria per square inch, just on the spigot alone.

4. Multiple people often use the same keyboard in a workspace, which increases the chance of transferring germs.

5. Countless people touch the buttons in building elevators each day, which gives germs a perfect place to accumulate and spread.
