Scary GERMS are growing on your office desk!

Contaminated Office Surfaces, According to a recent scientific Office Germ Study conducted by Dr. Charles Gerba of the University of Arizona, there are 6 PROBLEM AREAS where your office could be making you very sick, at this very moment, without you even knowing about it! And here’s the really Shocking part: Many janitorial cleaning crews do not clean the infected office surfaces shown below nor do they use the proper disinfectant if they even clean these areas at all!

Area #1: The area where you rest your hands on your office desk has an average of 10,000,000 bacteria !!!
Area #2: The office computer keyboard and mouse you touch with your fingers everyday has an average of 6000 bacteria per square inch!
Area #3: The office telephone you touch to your face and mouth to every day has an average of 25,000 bacteria on the mouth and ear parts!
Area #4: DO THIS QUICK TEST NOW: Look at your telephone ear and mouth set and you will see bacteria laden smudges that the cleaning crew never cleans…..Yuck!!!
Area #5: 77 percent of workers say they come to work sick. Cold and flu viruses can survive on any common workplace surface that someone touches (such as door knobs, refrigerator handles, counter tops, pens, copy machine and elevator buttons, etc) for up to 72 hours….and can cause you to become infected with the virus for up to 3 days from exposure with a contaminated surface.
Area #6: It costs companies as much as $1.5 billion annually for employee illness & absenteeism. * Above data taken from a recent office germ study by University of Arizona germ guru Dr. Charles Gerba
