The average desk’s surface contains more than 10 million germs –
but they can easily be eradicated
Monday January 25 2010 – As more of us spend increasing amounts of time at our office or home desks, the areas around where we work are becoming ever-greater hazards to our health.
Hard surfaces, such as telephones, computer mice, printer buttons and door handles, are among the likely areas where some of the millions of germs lurking in every office are hiding – just waiting for their next unsuspecting victim.
Research has shown that the average office desk harbours more than 10 million germs. Many of these can cause minor illnesses, but, left unchecked, they can multiply to the extent that they become a serious health risk.
In order to help staff win this germ warfare battle, safety goods and signs supplier Safetyshop.com has added a comprehensive range of eco-friendly office cleaning equipment to its selection.
These latest products help keep every office surface clean and, more importantly, help to drastically reduce the amount of bacteria workers are exposed to.
