We all know that keeping things clean in general and washing our hands helps keep us healthy and avoids germs as much as possible. When it comes to our work environments though, we may just be paying attention to the wrong places. Of course, keeping the loos fresh and clean is always going to take the top spot on the cleaning ‘to do’ list alongside the kitchen where we prepare our food and drinks, and that’s just as it should be! However, there are some other areas in particular where more bacteria are lurking, waiting to strike down your workforce!
Why Your Business Needs Antibacterial Cleaning
On the average desk alone there are 20,000 germs per square inch, with three times more bacteria thriving on the average computer mouse than a toilet seat. Things like printer buttons, telephone handsets and keypads, door handles, keyboards and even the kettle handle in the staff kitchen are all germ hotspots that inevitably get missed if the cleaning regime only consists of a member of staff having a quick whizz-round with the hoover and a duster! With commercial cleaning from aZtec, these key areas will never get missed and will be disinfected on a regular basis.
Another great way to stop the spread of illness causing bacteria, is to supply hand sanitiser and encourage staff to use it! Simply using it after coughing or sneezing will then stop the germs being transferred to the next surface touched.
Here at aZtec, we know that antibacterial cleaning is not just for medical centres, veterinary clinics and surgeries. Making sure your workplace is germ free is a must for any business, in fact, according to a report conducted by the Centre for Economic and Business Research, poor hygiene in our offices costs the British economy a staggering £13.7 billion a year!
Economist at the Centre for Economics and Business Research, Daniel Solomon commented: “This report indicates that for every worker employed, British businesses are throwing £700 down the drain. It’s a general rule that the better you care for something, the better it will perform. The British workforce is no exception. For the majority of businesses, staff represent a significant investment. In failing to create a healthy workplace environment, employers are failing their employees and businesses.”
