When people at work get sick, they blame factors outside of the office. One person got the flu because his child caught the flu at school, another had a stomach ache because of something he ate at home, and so on. Nobody ever says that he or she got sick because of something in the office. However, the truth is that some items in the office have even more bacteria than a bathroom.

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the excellent quality of work done by your staff. Without worry, I know that I will have a clean home to come home to after you are finished. It isn’t often that you can have a service provider perform the tasks you hired them for and have…

— Ian A. Johnson, Small Business Owner

Moreover, people running around to meet tight deadlines and goals hardly ever have time for good hygiene practices, and they have less time to supervise the person in charge of cleaning the office.

How many times have your desk and its items been cleaned and sanitized?

How about the stapler, erasers, and pins that are in your drawer? Or the telephone, paper tray, paper cutter, bulletin board, or ruler?

We can go on naming items that you can find in any office, but we bet that you have already noticed some items that have never.

Have you ever seen how your office is kept clean?

What gets cleaned and what doesn’t? Does the cleaning staff move the desks and chairs when cleaning, or do they just clean the tops of the desks? Do they go deeper and also clean the drawers and everything inside of the desks? How about the door knobs and the light switches? Have you looked at the items they clean with? Do they use a different sponge to clean the bathroom, or do they use the same sponge? How about the cleaning cart, is it clean? If you answered no to any of these questions, your office may need an Office Building Sanitizing.
