Office Workers Unaware of Germiest Areas in their Workplace

Although it is important to clean restrooms daily, surveyed office workers did not realize that the number of germs on a toilet in a typical office restroom is far lower than the number found on an office phone.

Nearly 75 percent of surveyed workers in the Newark, NJ, area believe that the office restroom is the most vital place to keep clean, according to a press release from OpenWorks, a commercial cleaning services provider. However, a typical toilet seat is home to 49 germs per square inch, according to microbiology research from the University of Arizona, while a typical office phone may have more than 25,000 germs per square inch—or more than 510 times the bacteria found on the office toilet seat.
