The Importance of Cleaning High Touch Areas

In an office there are many high touch areas. Some are never really taken into consideration. Extra steps should be taken to keep these surfaces clean. Some of these are:

• Door Knobs and Handles
• Entry Keypads
• Remote Controls
• Light Switches
• Any Kind of Button
• Faucets
• Everything in the Kitchen

This is just a short list and will vary according to each individual office or workplace. These are just some of the most common ones.

Why it is Important to Keep These Areas Clean

Keeping these areas clean is important because most people do not wash their hands as often as they should. This is how pathogens spread quickly. Because so many different people are in contact with these areas, it can spread fast throughout the office.

Who Touches These Areas?

Everyone does. This does not mean that just because your employees are keeping in check, you have no control over who is visiting. Most businesses have hand sanitizers at the door, but every time one touches their face or phone, they could void the cleaning they did at the door.

These areas should be cleaned often and with the right detergents. When in doubt, hire a professional cleaning contractor. Even if you don’t contract them for daily cleaning, they can recommend what to do in between visits. Nevada Building Services can help you out in this area.
