Your Desk is Dirtier than a Toilet

We do our very best to make sure our data is secure from a breach, but have you put in the same amount of effort towards your employees’ health?

As we find ourselves in the middle of a worldwide pandemic against COVID-19, there’s no better time than now to establish a healthier, cleaner business environment for your workforce.

Why you ask? Would you believe me if I told you your office toilet seat is cleaner than most desks in your office? It’s true. According to The Wall Street Journal*, your office equipment can contain 10 to 15x more bacteria on its surface than the office toilet seat.

Still don’t believe me? Here are some findings for your disbelief…

Coffee Cup

According to Gerba’s research, your coffee cup can contain over 2,000 bacteria per square inch. Sure, the first thing you do is clean your usual mug but even the sponge you’re using can be bacteria-laden shared amongst your colleagues which could still leave bacteria count in the hundreds on your “clean” cup of Breakfast Blend or Hazelnut Coffee.


Your desk is your sanctuary, right? Wrong. Whether you’re working at an assigned desk in your own office or part of an open-concept model, you spend the majority of your workday on a surface that contains 800 bacteria per square inch.

Keyboard & Mouse

With that, there’s no better place to discuss next than your keyboard and mouse. Two obvious components you’re physically touching and quite frankly, items you can’t avoid.

So what are you getting yourselves into? 700 to 600 different bacteria per square inch.

Multifunction Printers (MFP)

Need a copy? Go to the printer. Need to send a fax? Go to the printer. Need to scan a document to email? Go to the printer. It’s inevitable, you’re going to need to access your in-office Multifunction Printer (MFP) at some point in the day. Your office MFP can contain over 400 bacteria per square inch.

Spreading germs and bacteria throughout your office is as certain as there being a tomorrow, so we asked ourselves, “How can Gabi Solutions® help keep your office environment safe?”
