After using the same furniture and living in the same space month after month, furniture, common areas, and carpeting begin to gather germs, dust, fungus, bacteria, dirt, and more than anyone wants to imagine.
A clean and healthy office supports workers’ health and productivity. People tend to pick up illnesses in places where they congregate with many other people, some of whom may be sick. The workplace is no different. In light of the COVID-19 virus, it’s become more important than ever to clean and disinfect surface areas that people touch, such as office desks, chairs, and computer equipment. In particular, shared office equipment, like printers and conference rooms, must be cleaned regularly.
Your employees may be hesitant to come to a workplace that they perceive to be covered in potentially harmful bacteria. Be proactive in fighting COVID-19 and other illnesses by scheduling regular office furniture cleaning and disinfecting sessions. Not only will it help workers keep their health, but it will also provide everyone with peace of mind so they can focus on their duties.
At CRS, we offer professional office furniture cleaning and disinfecting. Find out how our services can benefit your workplace with a free quote.
How Germs Spread in an Office Setting
Even the cleanest office can be one where germs fester and take a toll on your employees’ health. Managers and employees would be surprised at how many potential office hygiene hazards exist. They can include:
Office furniture, like desks, chairs, and filing cabinets, that are not frequently cleaned can be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Workers who constantly touch their furniture bring outside germs into the office on their skin and clothing. Workers who eat at their desks may also make their workspaces less sanitary. You can’t always count on your employees to clean their desks, but you can count on CRS to get into the crevices when cleaning and disinfecting your office furniture.
Computer equipment — like keyboards, monitors, computer mouses, mousepads, telephones, and headsets — are used by office workers constantly in an 8-hour shift. Keyboards and mice are among the most heavily used items in an office and can end up harboring bacteria from sweat, skin cells, and food residue. Computer equipment should be cleaned weekly, at a minimum, to reduce the potential for harboring dangerous illnesses that can make your employees call out sick.
Shared Kitchen Appliances
No office should have a refrigerator full of forgotten or discarded foods, but many do. If your office suffers from a dirty fridge, or your fridge is host to a number of unwanted and expired lunches, it’s time to do a deep clean. Microwave ovens also attract lots of food particles and grime. Since germs need warmth, a microwave splattered with food particles can be a possible health risk.
Now is the best time to invest in cleaning your office kitchen appliances, ensuring the health and safety of your workers. CRS can help you keep a clean and sanitary office kitchen.
