We all know that traditional offices are unhealthy in many ways, but new research funded by household cleaning specialists The Clorox Company suggests home office surfaces are literally cluttered with millions of potentially illness-inducing bacteria. Folk in white coats led by the University of Arizona’s Dr. Charles Gerba compared bacteria levels on common office surfaces in both home office and traditional office environments and apparently the homeworkers' surfaces came off second best - four times as many bacteria were found on home desktops compared to traditional desktops. “Surprisingly high germ levels in home offices may be due to the fact that people think their homes are already clean, or that the germs in their home offices are just their own and therefore harmless,” Gerba said. “But, regardless of whose they are, there’s a chance the germs can make you sick.”Gerba recommends frequent handwashing and, no surprises here, using disinfecting wipes daily on hard, nonporous surfaces in your cubicle or office to kill germs. Make yourself feel less at risk by reading some of Clorox's other research on unhealthy traditional offices here where he suggests women have more bacteria-ridden desks than men (which I find very hard to believe).
