Don't Forget To Clean These Common Office Touchpoints

Quick Tips • Disinfection

Your office can easily become a breeding ground for germs & bacteria without a proper cleaning system in place. Investing in a commercial cleaning company allows your office to stay clean & illness-free without lifting a finger. Be sure to clean & sanitize high touchpoints within your office between commercial cleanings to avoid sick employees. Read on to make sure you don’t forget to clean these common office touchpoints!

Door Handles

Both employees and visitors constantly use door handles, causing them to rack up germs easily. Cabinet handles and drawer pulls also fall into this category. You should clean doorknobs, cabinet handles, and drawer pulls every single day. Adding door pedals is a smart way to reduce the number of office touchpoints.


Light Switches

Some other common touchpoints throughout the office are light switches. Like door handles, office staff uses light switches daily, allowing them to accumulate bacteria quickly. We recommend cleaning light switches daily to prevent illness in the office. Make it a habit to use light switches with anything but your fingers/hands—use your elbow, an object, or your sleeve (over your hand/finger)!    

Appliance Handles/Buttons

Some people tend to overlook shared office equipment & appliances such as printers, microwaves, and refrigerators as a common touchpoint. The handles & buttons on these appliances enable the spread of germs, creating a sick staff. Even buttons on the office thermostat should be cleaned frequently!

Keyboards, Phones, & Other Devices

It's especially important to clean keyboards, phones, and other devices if they're shared throughout the office. A 2022 study found that 96% of keyboards tested were contaminated with bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus. You should clean any shared office devices daily, but we also recommend cleaning personal devices frequently to be safe.    

The thought of daily cleaning tasks can seem overwhelming, but it’s actually very quick & simple! Taking a few disinfecting wipes to clean each common touchpoint at the end of every day only takes a few minutes. Plus, it saves you money in the long run by preventing sick employees. Admittedly, investing in a commercial cleaning company is the most efficient method of keeping your office clean & disinfected.
