5 Office Surfaces That Should Be Disinfected More Often 

Now that flu season is fast approaching, it is more important than ever to stay on top of regular cleaning and disinfection, especially in the office. Although the best way to maintain a safe and germ-free environment is by hiring a professional cleaning service such as S.J. Services, certain office surfaces should be paid extra attention to. 

Keyboards and Mice 

Perhaps the surfaces most touched in an office, especially an office whose work is primarily completed on computers, are the keyboards and mice. Although the one benefit to this is that these tools are rarely shared among individuals, they are nonetheless completely riddled with germs from being constantly touched every day of the week. 

The easiest way to stay on top of disinfecting your keyboard and mouse is to simply keep a container of Clorox wipes, or disinfectant spray and paper towels at the ready. Simply wiping down the keys and surface of the mouse once a day can significantly lessen the germs residing on them. 

Handles and Light Switches 

Handles and light switches are some of the most commonly touched surfaces in the office by all employees. If not properly maintained, they can be the point of germ transfer among employees that can double the number of people in your office experiencing cold symptoms. 

It is difficult to keep such menial tasks at the forefront of your mind when you have an entire business to keep up and running. Incorporating the disinfecting of common touchpoint surfaces in your office is an option, but the better option is hiring a professional who is trained in proper disinfection. 

Kitchen Appliances 

Have you ever thought about the number of people who touch the office coffee pot in one morning to get their caffeine fix? Cleanliness isn’t always the priority, especially when you haven’t had your morning coffee, but considering how often the kitchen is used in your office may make you question the last time the most commonly used appliances were properly cleaned. 

The Bathroom Sink 

Did you know that the most germy surface in a bathroom is not the toilet, or the floor, but the sink? When you wash your hands, much of the germ residue that you wash off continues to linger in the sink. Depending on the size of your office, your sink may be more or less germy, however, incorporating this often-forgotten surface into your regular cleaning routine can be especially helpful during flu season. 

When you hire a professional cleaning service such as S.J. Services you needn’t worry about seemingly irrelevant little cleaning tasks, despite how important they may be.
