The Dirtiest Office Areas

Would you be surprised to know that you may be reading this in a dirty office right now, maybe even eating as you do it?

Your office’s dirtiest area is your desk, which can carry up to 400 times more germs than the average office toilet seat. After reading that, no doubt you are starting to feel uncomfortable in your surroundings.

Most microbes are concentrated around your desk phone, with the desktop becoming a breeding ground for harmful germs and bugs that can make you unwell fast if not cleaned regularly and properly.

Having your desk and phone cleaned professionally along with every other surface within your work environment is extremely important – and equally important is to not do it with a cheap, quick job unprofessionally.

Away From the Desk

No doubt you have already had second thoughts about eating at your desk until you know it’s thoroughly cleaned, but when we move around your offices you can be spreading those germs around with everything you touch.

Hygiene plays a big part in how an office is managed successfully and people are more conscious of germs being passed around the office. Even a dust-induced sneeze can cause everyone in the office to become adverse to working around them.

Many people also come and go to a big office, whether it is for a meeting or to deliver something. Not everyone can be counted on to have washed their hands before or after contact with lift buttons or door handles.

Some of these people could have a cold or worse, and those micro germs certainly spread fast around touch areas. Professional office cleaning Manchester takes these pivotal areas into high consideration when conducting a routine clean.


Another huge dirty office area is the kitchen, with the kitchen sink being the biggest offender in this area.

Taps are exposed to everything on your hands that you look to wash off, as you have to turn them on whilst your hands are still dirty – but not many washes down the taps after turning them off. You would be hard-pressed to find any employee who has ever done that at all.

The bottom of the sink congregates all of the gunk, leftover food and germs and bacteria associated with them which soon becomes a health and safety problem. This requires a heavier dose of cleaning regularly to ensure that the area where food is stored is not shared with a hive of bacteria.
