According to research, a single working desk contains millions of microorganisms. It is estimated to have 400 times the amount of germs found on a typical toilet seat. Microbial pathogens such as e.coli, salmonella, coliforms, and norovirus, to mention a few, are prevalent on office equipment such as the keyboard and mouse, predisposing personnel to illnesses such as the flu, common colds, diarrhoea, and pinkeye.
Additionally, let us not forget about our carpets. These thick cloth patches serve as filters, trapping dirt and filth. Over time, your workplace carpet develops an excessive amount of dirt, dust, bacteria, and even mould, posing a health risk to personnel. Food particles from spilt beverages and food may also contribute to the odour and growth of germs in your carpet. Regrettably, routine workplace carpet cleaning is insufficient to eliminate, or at the very least lessen, health concerns.
The good news is that the current trend in workplace cleanliness is a notch higher, or should we say deeper, than the norm. This is referred to as office deep cleaning.
