Where Dirt Hides in the Office

Cleaning an office means cleaning more than just the readily available areas. From tabletops and door handles to lunchrooms and coffee machines, office equipment can be home to a surprising amount of filth. What are some areas in the office that house the greatest amounts of hidden dirt?

Office Equipment

Human hands will come into contact with a myriad of surfaces throughout the day. Everytime you touch a new surface, you’re picking up new microbes and planting those that you’ve brought from other places. Therefore, it makes sense that the items touched most frequently by hands would be the dirtiest surfaces. Computer accessories, like mice and keyboards, are bacteria hot spots for this reason. Couple with the fact that dust and dirt can easily settle into the cracks between keys, and you’ve got yourself a dirty workspace! Luckily, there are plenty of electronic-friendly cleaning wipes that can be found that will help remove much of the bacteria. A can of pressurized air is perfect for blowing dust out of keyboards. Be sure to do this in a well ventilated area as you don’t want to reintroduce dust back into the air.

Carpets and Floors

Carpeted floors can be a great addition to the office, offering a touch of warmth and a sense of coziness to the space. However, carpet fibres also happen to be excellent at trapping dust and microbes and preventing them from being removed. This problem is exacerbated if the area sees a lot of foot traffic and shoes. While vacuuming can help, the best way to ensure a clean carpet is to get a professional carpeting cleaning done. Regency Cleaning uses powerful equipment with environmentally-friendly products to deep clean carpets and return them to their original condition. Not only will your space look great, you’ll also enjoy improved air quality and create a safer and more hygienic working environment.
