Why Your Workplace Needs Professional Cleaning & Disinfection Services

Dr. Charles Gerba, a.k.a. “Dr. Germ” – a professor at the University of Arizona and one of the nation’s leading experts on environmental microbiology did a study funded by the Clorox Company. The study found that surfaces in offices and cubicles had higher bacteria levels than surfaces in common areas like bathrooms and break rooms. Here are some eye-opening statistics on germs and hygiene (or lack thereof) in the workplace that will probably surprise you:

  • 32% of employees admit to not washing their hands after using the bathroom.
  • 30% of employees said they only use water to wash their hands after using the bathroom.
  • 26% of people have fecal bacteria on their hands.
  • A workspace desk is 100 times less hygienic than the average kitchen table and almost 2 out of three office workers say they eat at their desks.
  • The average desk has approximately 400 x more bacteria than the average toilet seat.
  • One in 5 office workers says that they never clean their desks before eating on it.
  • 11% of office workers admit to never wiping down their keyboards.
  • 46% of workers say they sanitize their keyboard less than once per month.

“Most people think it’s coughing and sneezing that spreads germs, but the number of objects you touch is incredible, especially in this push-button generation,” said Dr.Gerba.  Along with regular hand washing, one of the best ways to help stop the spread of illness-causing germs (bacteria, fungi, and viruses) in the workplace is to hire a reputable and experienced cleaning company.

We use an EPA registered disinfectant solution with a broad-spectrum kill claim (proven to be effective against Covid-19). The EPA’s definition of a “broad spectrum” disinfectant is one that has public health claims for all three of the major classes of organisms, including bacteria (effective against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria), Fungi (effective against at least one pathogenic fungi), and viruses (effective against pathogenic viruses). 

Our professional disinfecting services include:

  • Hand wiping and electrostatic spraying
  • Use of EPA approved disinfectants with a broad-spectrum kill claim
  • Adherence to CDC, EPA, and OSHA guidelines 
  • Use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Disinfection of high-touch surfaces including light switches, handrails, elevator buttons, door handles, faucets, dispensers, drinking fountains, countertops, work surfaces, desktops areas, phones, keyboards, mouse devices, and all other frequently touched surfaces in the workplace.

All surfaces are cleaned of visible dirt and grime prior to applying a disinfectant. An EPA registered chemical solution is then sprayed and left to dry on surfaces, allowing for proper dwell time in order to kill bacteria, fungi, and viruses (including coronavirus). Note: Sanitizers are not considered broad-spectrum by EPA’s definition since they are only meant to reduce bacteria levels.
