Disinfect All Surfaces, Especially These Virus Hot Spots

It’s easy to wipe down the countertops, clean the bathroom, tidy the kitchen, and think your office is clean. Your office looks clean, but germs and bacteria are running rampant on all your most frequently touched surfaces. These virus hot spots need to be attacked with a high-quality flu disinfectant frequently to prevent the virus from infecting your employees. When disinfecting your office this flu season, don’t neglect these major virus hot spots:

  • Computer Mice and Keyboards
  • Desks and Computers
  • Door Handles
  • Fridge Handles
  • Kitchenware
  • Remote Controls
  • Sinks and Faucet Handles
  • Telephones
  • Toilets and Toilet Handles
  • Towels

Keep the Office Kitchen Sparkling Clean to Prevent the Flu from SpreadingCleaning employees cleaning office to prevent flu

Do you have an office kitchen with a shared coffee station, mugs, cups, and plates? If so, you need to be extra careful about preventing the spread of flu germs in your office kitchen. In this area where people are constantly eating and drinking, one contaminated cup or coffee pot could take down half the office.

To keep your employees safe, maintain a high standard of cleanliness in the kitchen. Use a high-quality disinfecting dish detergent like the orange Dawn Ultra Antibacterial dish soap. You may need to post a friendly reminder near the sink to remind employees to wash their dishes thoroughly and immediately before restocking them. Wipe down the countertops, cabinet handles, and coffee pot handles with flu-fighting disinfectant frequently. With these simple tips, you can keep your office kitchen clean and germ-free.

 

Keep Your Employees Happy, Healthy, and Hydrated

You can decrease your employees’ likelihood of becoming infected with the flu ten-fold with the above helpful tips, but there’s no way to completely eliminate this dangerous, invisible virus. A strong immune system is the key to keeping viruses and bacteria at bay.

Your employees are less likely to contract the flu virus if they are maintaining their immune systems with healthy habits and less stress. Make sure to have a water station at your office and encourage your employees to stay extra hydrated this season. Maintain a happy, positive workplace environment, because stress increases the likelihood of getting sick. Encourage your employees to maintain healthy eating and sleeping habits.

These healthy habits will strengthen your employees’ immune systems so they can fight off any germs, bacteria, or viruses that come their way.
