Updated: Feb 1, 2023

But look more closely to areas you normally see and use but never associate with the needs for cleaning. Here is the place for bacteria growth and you need to clean them.

Top areas that must be considered

1. Office Air-condition – A dusty AC is a place for fungus and bacteria. Turn off the AC and clean the filter. Or call a cleaning company to clean the rotating the damp fan where it accumulates mold and germs.

2. Mobile phones and iPads – Mobile phones and iPads are 10 times hazardous that toilet seats. Use disinfectant wipes with 70% isopropyl alcohol or a similar disinfecting spray, spritzed onto a clean microfiber cloth.

3. Sofa and Chairs – The most areas that need focusing in where your arms rest and where your exposed neck touches. You can dampen a microfibre towel with Dettol solution and clean these areas.
