The average American spends 47 hours a week working. Depending on your title, that could mean over eight hours a day sitting at your desk or simply spending time in an office. That’s eight hours a day interacting with areas of your office that are contaminated with harmful germs and bacteria that can easily be brought back home. Image One has a wide variety of office building cleaning services to help eliminate harmful bacteria and improve the overall environment of your office.
Germ Hot Spots
Did you know that the average person carries almost 1,500 germs on their hands? With even the slightest interaction, your hand will pick up hundreds of potential viruses that put your health at risk. Maybe one of your coworkers is using public transportation to get to and from work! No harm, until the bacteria they carried over from the safety bar on the commuter train spreads to the doorknob of the main entrance. Studies have shown the areas in your office that have the carry the most bacteria include your desk, fridge, keyboard, mouse, mug, and even the air itself.
How Dangerous is it?
The most shocking part about all of this is not where the bacteria are colonizing, but the viruses they carry. Studies have shown that some of the most common bacteria within an office space include: norovirus, staph, influenza, salmonella, e.coli, c.diff, and h.pylori. And with new global diseases such as the coronavirus arriving in new states in the U.S. every day, why take your chances? Everyday science is finding new bacteria that are invisible to the naked-eye and harmful to your health. All of those common diseases found in the workplace are detrimental, but also somewhat preventable with our commercial office cleaning services.
What Can I Do?
As a business owner, there are steps you can take to promote a healthier working environment. One of the simplest steps any business owner could take is pointing out the importance of personal health and hygiene. If a member of your team is carrying a cold, encouraging them to conduct work from home could make all the difference. A survey conducted last year showed that 90 percent of workers go to their office sick every year. Since bacteria and germs are transferred so quickly between individuals, allowing your employees to take the time they need to recover could prevent office-wide illnesses.
