Most office workers will be aware their computer keyboards and mice can be hot-houses when it comes to germs. However in the drive to ensure this type of equipment stays clean, it can be all too easy to forget the desk itself.
“An office desk can be a haven for germs,” said a spokesman on behalf of Procare Cleaning. “However many office cleaning companies focus on cleaning the office equipment we all use and ignore the desks themselves.”
Modern working lives mean many people end up eating their lunch while they work. Even snacking at your desk can lead to germs building up throughout the day, let alone the week. So even if your keyboard, mouse and phone are cleaned regularly, you still need to focus on cleaning that desktop on a regular basis.
It is recommended this should be done daily if you eat lunch or snack regularly at your desk. This will help reduce the amount of microbes and bacteria gradually multiplying there. The ideal product to use is something that guarantees it kills 99.9% of known germs. Some people keep a packet of wipes in their top drawer for spot cleaning between visits by the office cleaning company. This is ideal for a quick clean after every lunch you eat.
Many offices are of course quite clean since they are tended to regularly. However in the absence of such a service things are not so good!
