AF reinforce the need for cleaning

Posted on 08 August 2012 |

AF International, computer and ITC cleaning chemical specialists have recently surveyed 1000 business people who regularly use IT equipment to find out who cleans regularly, who eats at their desk as well as what equipment is used in the home environment.

With only 45.8% of people surveyed having their workplace cleaned on a daily basis, and an astounding 15% not knowing if their office was cleaned or had ever been cleaned, the results show some interesting facts about cleanliness within the office. And when you think that 47% admitted to eating at their desk every day, hygiene should be something high on the agenda.

A surprising amount of people not only work and eat at their laptop at the office, but 28.3% take them home, and use them outside of working hours an additional reason to clean to stop the spread of germs from one environment to another. The reverse is 26.4% take personal laptops from home into the workplace.

The survey also asked about what technology equipment they used at home in general and it's no surprise that 73.5% said a laptop but amazingly 46.6% said smartphones and 43.8% regularly used game consoles.
