It may alarm you to discover that more than an amazing 10 million bacteria could be lurking on your computer keyboard, mouse and phone. You would probably recoil if a work colleague coughed or sneezed in your direction, unaware that your keyboard is probably far more infectious. Cleaner offices improve staff morale.

Keep Workspace Clean, Tidy & Hygienic

Over a single day, your desk area and keyboard can collect human skin, faecal matter, nasal mucus, food waste and probably the odd splash of coffee.

Imagine how much is collected over a week, month or more?

The fact is, germs are invisible and for many of us, out of sight is out of mind.

The Problem

Unless your workspace is kept clean and hygienic, germs will spread and they will cause infections unless dealt with properly and regularly.

Lack of time is not an excuse. It’s a factor.

Think of it this way.

You have a busy work schedule and your staff are key to your ability to deliver the work on time for your clients. If a member of staff falls sick, or even worse multiple members, due to a sickness bug or even the common cold, it’s detrimental to your business.

The main culprits for a grubby, unhygienic keyboard and workspace are unwashed hands (after using the loo) and eating at your desk.

Let’s not forget also that it’s not unusual for keyboards and general workspaces to be shared and due to this more dirt and germs are transferred. You may be the Howard Hughes of hand washing and cleanliness, but it’s not to say your work colleagues are!

4 Germs often found on keyboards and devices in the office include:

E Coli Bacteria

Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium of the genus Escherichia that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms


Coliform bacteria are a commonly used bacterial indicator of sanitary quality of foods and water.

Staphylococcus aureus

Staphylococcus aureus is a gram-positive coccus bacterium that is a member of the Firmicutes and is frequently found in the nose, respiratory tract, and on the skin


The Enterobacteriaceae are a large family of Gram-negative bacteria that includes, along with many harmless symbionts, many of the more familiar pathogens, such as Salmonella, Escherichia coli, Yersinia pestis, Klebsiella and Shigella

Proactive Management of Hygiene Standards

It is easy to combat the majority of bugs by simply keeping your office environment clean.

Ensuring your workspace is clean and hygienic is a key factor

When was the last time you brushed the dust off your keyboard, let alone gave it a wipe over with an antibacterial cloth?

The trouble is we all lead busy lives and have increasingly busy work schedules and diligently cleaning the work-space regularly is most likely not at the top of your agenda.
