Important Surfaces in Your Office to Disinfect

May 1, 2021

With more people returning to the office, it’s important that you’re doing your part to maintain a clean work environment. While janitorial services commonly clean professional offices, it’s easy to overlook many of the small areas around the building that can become hotspots for bacteria and germs. Take a look at some important surfaces in and around your office to disinfect. 

The top 5 places to disinfect in your office


Unless your office building is equipped with motion-activated sliding doors, a major hotspot for germs and bacteria will be the doorknobs. These are some of the most-touched surfaces in any office, and they are easy to overlook. Pay close attention to doorknobs around the office and disinfect them consistently. 


Copiers are another highly-touched surface. Make sure you’re disinfecting them frequently using electric or anti-static sprays and wipes. Dust and debris can build up in the nooks and crannies of copy machines — use a duster to access those hard-to-reach areas to keep the machine both clean and operational.

Keyboards and Mice

It should come as no surprise that keyboards and mice are among the most touched surfaces in any office. Germs and bacteria can easily transfer from person to person here, and if you’ve neglected to disinfect this surface, we encourage you to clean it as often as possible. You can disinfect this surface using compressed air to spray between the keys, cotton swabs spritzed with a cleaning solution, and a cloth to wipe down the rest of the keyboard. 


Your office phones are handled by several people throughout the day. Not only do people touch these devices, but they also press them against their faces. This level of activity allows germs and bacteria to pass into the mouth and face. That’s why you should regularly disinfect your office phones. Unplug each phone and wipe it down with a cleaning solution and cloth.
