Dusting and disinfecting your office regularly helps to ensure the health and well-being of your employees. Most likely, nothing creates a negative impression of a company for a visitor more than dust accumulated on furniture and desks. While dusting keeps the furniture clean, the environment healthier and helps prolong the life of the furniture, periodic polishing of the wood surfaces is important.
We clean with microfiber rags which capture all the dust. We also dust other areas where dust will collect such as light fixtures, shelves, blinds and window sills.
In some offices, the ventilation system may not be collecting dust properly. We check the air vents and regularly clean them to ensure that the workplace is clean and healthy.

Why is thorough dusting so important? Well, according to several studies, including the pathbreaking one by Dr. Charles Gerba, known as the University of Arizona “germ guru,” one of the biggest safety hazards in the workplace isn’t on the shop floor, but in the office. He reported that the average desk harbors about 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. In fact, there can be as many as 10 million bacteria in your office, and most of it is on the desk, where many people eat breakfast, lunch and even dinner.
Gerba conducted the first study of its kind to measure normal bacterial levels inside offices across America. “For bacteria, a desk is really the laptop of luxury,” says Gerba. “They can feast all day from breakfast to lunch and even dinner.”
Gerba and his researchers found that unless desks were wiped clean with a disinfectant during the day, bacteria levels climbed higher and higher, peaking after lunch. How many of your employees wipe their desks clean with disinfectants every day? That’s why it is important to have a cleaning company like MD Building Services that is aware of this and has personnel who pay particular attention to desks and disinfecting them and making certain they are clean.
