It’s been estimated that the average workplace in the U.S. is teeming with over 500 different kinds of bacteria. If that’s not enough to make your skin crawl, consider the fact that research has revealed office phones contain a staggering 25,000 bacteria per square inch. In fact, you assume a toilet is likely to contain the most amount of bacteria, however, research has shown that a toilet can be up 50 times cleaner than your unassuming computer mouse and mouse pad.
In addition, while everyone might like to hang around the coffee machine or water cooler on a Monday morning to discuss their weekends, it’s been found that nearly 25% of water cooler buttons contain harmful bacteria that can cause illness. Because of these reasons, it’s easy to see why illness tends to spread so quickly around an office.
