This would make a good riddle if we had a witty answer. Still, you will want to know the answer since it can affect your heath and that of other around you.

When walking into a spotless office building we feel in a clean environment. In fact, by definition “clean” means ‘free from dirt’. Sometimes though a secondary meaning of clean is forgotten; a clean environment is also ‘free of pollutants’ (Definition Source). We often use this meaning when talking about clean water. A clean glass of water is usually product of a filtering process that removes both the visible and invisible unwanted elements. So a truly clean building is also free of bacteria, viruses and other contaminates too.

Office phones are common cross-contamination items.

It is impossible to remove 100% of all contamination when cleaning, but a few simple tips could significantly improve your results. Please take a look at the 2 tips below and let us know what you think. Even if the Buzz Brite Team cleans your office regularly, some ideas may help you to clean-up between visits.

  1. Use the right products: Products tend to be specific to certain needs. For example the best stain removing products usually don’t have bacteria killing properties. For this reason, some time a surface may need to be wiped using multiple products to ensure the best possible cleanliness.
  2. Know where to find the germs: The most effective way of controlling germ cross-contamination is your hands regularly through out the day. But unfortunately not everyone give the same importance to this practice. So wiping of the common cross contamination surfaces like phone, door handles and light switches can significantly improve the sanitation of your office space.

We hope these points have helped you to see the meaning of ‘clean’ from a different light. Share your thoughts with us by emailing info@buzzbrite.ca or connecting with us on Twitter or Facebook.
