Whether you work from home or in an office building, it's important to keep your premises clean and hygienic, and as free from bacteria as possible. A dirty work place can have a negative impact on you and your employees health and moral. Not to mention the bad impression you are sending to possible clients!
Did you know that 80% of infections are spread through hand contact? Basically anything your hand touches has the potential to be full of germs. The best advice therefore, would be to regularly wash your hands and hire the services of a cleaning company that specialises in office cleaning. The following areas need particular attention:-
RISK HOT SPOTS

CLEANING REALLY DOES MATTER, HOW CLEAN IS YOUR OFFICE?
"A report conducted by the Centre for Economic and Business Research (CEBR) on behalf of hygiene specialist Initial Washroom Hygiene, has identified that the British economy could save £13.7 billion if office hygiene standards were improved – the monetary equivalent to the construction of 25 major new hospitals or the combined annual wages of 460,000 UK office staff".
Daniel Solomon, economist at the Centre for Economics and Business Research, commented: "This report indicates that for every worker employed, British businesses are throwing £700 down the drain. It’s a general rule that the better you care for something, the better it will perform. The British workforce is no exception. For the majority of businesses, staff represent a significant investment. In failing to create a healthy workplace environment, employers are failing their employees and businesses.” (Cleaning Matters)
