It may come as somewhat of an unpleasant surprise to learn that the average office desk is home to 400x more bacteria* than a toilet seat!

Spending upwards of 35 hours a week at their desks, the UK’s office workers use their desks for more than just work. From grabbing a bite to eat to even filing their nails, desks can be surprisingly unclean.

Of course, it isn’t just the desk that can harbour bugs and germs, telephones, which are often shared, the kettle, microwave and door handles are all well-used places that can be breeding grounds for bugs.

While keeping areas hygienic is essential to the wellbeing of staff and visitors, it is also important when it comes to making a great first impression. Keeping areas clean, clutter-free and well-maintained shows visitors that you are a company that means business.

A potential customer greeted with a cluttered reception area, covered in a thick layer of dust may very well get the impression that the company they are visiting doesn’t care about the details and go elsewhere.

As a minimum, everyday should see office bins emptied, recycling removed, kitchen areas cleaned, communal areas vacuumed and surfaces wiped.
