It may seem like a money-saving idea to have your office building lightly cleaned occasionally. Bathroom cleaning, a bit of sweeping and some dusting makes an office look pretty clean, right? So why pay for any deeper cleaning in Dallas, TX? Actually, hiring a thorough cleaning service like Bell Janitorail can save you time, money and even increase your business productivity. Swarming all over your office building are germs–invisible to the eye, but devastating to a company’s productivity when employees start staying home sick in droves. And these germs reside in places you might not think of immediately, like office phones, desk chairs, microwave handles, and computer keyboards. A recent study analyzed the bacteria present in office spaces in three cities. While bacteria levels varied based on city and employee gender, it was discovered that chairs and phones were the most contaminated surfaces, with bacteria from human skin, oral and nasal cavities constituting the main source of bacteria.
Another study brought found that personal office spaces (desks, cubicles) are often the germiest places in an entire office–more contaminated than even public toilet seats. Next in line for “germiest area” were drinking fountain handles and microwave handles. University of Arizona’s Dr. Charles Gerba points out: “We don’t think twice about eating at our desks, even though the average desk has 100 times more bacteria than a kitchen table and 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet.” He goes on to state that “Without cleaning, a small area on your desk or phone can sustain millions of bacteria that could potentially cause illness.” Office employees spend a significant amount of time at their desks, so frequent deep cleaning in Dallas, TX is crucial to that office’s well-being, because sick employees means lost productivity.
After comparing offices that disinfected daily and those that did not, the study reported that – “In offices, common areas that are cleaned and disinfected every day have fewer germs and bacteria than most desks. (On average, the area where you rest your hand on the desk has 10,000,000 bacteria.)” and they went on to state that disinfecting, even with simple hand wipes “can reduce the number of germs and bacteria on office surfaces by up to 99.9 percent.”
