10 Hidden Germ Hotspots in Your Office

Think your office is clean? Think again!  We’ve all heard about cleaning desks and doorknobs, but what about the hidden spots where germs love to hide? Germs can lurk in surprising places, putting your employees’ health at risk. Don’t worry, Mega Service Solutions has you covered. 

Here are 10 Surprising Places in Your Office That Could Be Harboring Harmful Bacteria:

  1. Desktops: These receive constant hand contact and rarely get cleaned, making them germ hotspots. Wipe down your desk daily with a disinfectant. Don’t forget to clean your keyboard, mouse, and phone!
  2. Coffee Machine Handles: Coffee stations are busy places, and the handles accumulate countless germs from countless hands. Wipe down the coffee machine handles daily with a disinfectant wipe.
  3. Water Cooler Spouts: Everyone touches the spouts to dispense water, but how often are they disinfected? Disinfect the water cooler buttons daily with a disinfectant wipe.
  4. Office Kitchen Refrigerator: Shared fridges are breeding grounds for bacteria, especially on door handles. Disinfect doorknobs daily, especially in high-traffic areas.
  5. Window Blinds: Blinds are often neglected during cleaning, allowing dust and germs to accumulate. Dust your blinds weekly with a microfiber cloth.
  6. Shared Office Supplies: Staplers, pens, and other shared items are touched by numerous hands throughout the day. Encourage employees to bring their office supplies. If you must share, disinfect them regularly.
  7. Light Switches: These are touched frequently but rarely cleaned, making them breeding grounds for germs. Wipe down light switches daily with a disinfectant.
  8. Elevator Buttons: Imagine the number of hands that touch these buttons every day! Disinfect yourselves with alcohol every after using these elevator buttons!
  9. Keyboards and Mice: We touch these all day, spreading germs without even realizing it. Wipe down your desk daily with a disinfectant. Don’t forget to clean your keyboard, mouse, and phone too!
  10. Remote Controls: These are often handled by multiple people and rarely cleaned, making them germ magnets. Wipe down the remote controls daily with a disinfectant wipe.

This concern doesn’t have to be a bottleneck for you and for your business. This may sound like a lot to cover, but a professional cleaning service can help you get the job done and help you maintain a healthy office.
