The Office for National Statistics in the UK stated that the average number of sick days used each year has been on the rise. That was even before current conditions. There is no doubt that the figures have increased this year throughout the world, including here in the United States. As a business with an office staff, those sick days can be a financial hardship by reducing your profitability. It makes sense to do everything you can to keep germs at bay so that if one of your staff members becomes ill, the germs don’t infect everyone else, as well. Here are some key areas that you should be sure that your office cleaning company isn’t missing, and it wouldn’t hurt to clean them in between their visits, as well.
- Photocopiers- The touch keypads get touched by nearly everyone at your office throughout the course of a day. Even daily cleaning may not be enough to combat germs, so consider having disinfecting wipes nearby so that it can be cleaned often. The same goes for other office equipment, such as scanners and printers.
- Telephones- Most surfaces in an office are germ havens because of being touched by multiple people. An extra problem with telephones is that the handset comes in close contact with germ-laden saliva and breaths during each telephone call. Your office cleaning professional will wipe them all down for you, but it doesn’t hurt to do so often throughout the course of the day.
- Door Handles- Even an office building with open cubicles utilizes doors to get into the building, for key personnel offices, the bathroom facilities, and other areas of the building. Your staff likely touches dozens of door handles throughout the day that should be disinfected regularly to reduce the spread of germs, bacteria, and viruses.
