Where would you think is the dirtiest part of the work place? Well…studies show that the kitchen has the most germs in the work place and door handles were found to have more bacteria than the toilet! It seems cleaning the kitchen is just as important as cleaning the toilets!
The three things reported to have the most bacteria was the kettle, sink and microwave. The fridge, keyboards and telephones close behind. Kitchen taps were found to have a high level of bacteria too. The more obvious places to clean had far less bacteria, such as table tops and work surfaces. These are obviously cleaned much more frequently. The kitchen seems to be the least focused on area where the office cleaning is concerned.
Reasons the office kitchen is so dirty
The office kitchen is mostly used by staff who nip in to make a quick coffee, or a quick bite to eat for lunch before heading back to work. Staff simply don’t have the time to clean up after themselves in the kitchen. Also staff will never take as much pride in the office kitchen as they do at home as they often don’t see it as their responsibility, kitchen and office cleaning not being their role. This along with not having the time to clean up properly after themselves often results in a very dirty kitchen.
The office kitchen can cause much conflict between staff. When people don’t clean up after themselves and leave a mess for their peers to face when they want to enjoy lunch. It seems to be an ongoing issue in office kitchens which has never been resolved. Office cleaning doesn’t end in the office, the kitchen needs cleaning too!
