We may not think about it often – but there are many surfaces in our homes and offices that everyone touches, and unfortunately, we do not know where their hands have been. Common areas that are in frequent contact with everyone are: door knobs, hand railings, elevator buttons, telephones, keyboards and mice, vending machines, refrigerators, water coolers and other appliances, fax machines, desktops and other surfaces, etc. These areas can be full of bacteria and viruses, so it is extremely important that each surface is cleaned regularly – this is where touch point cleaning comes in handy!
Touch point cleaning focuses on just that – touch points! It is a great system that anyone can follow to help keep their spaces clean and germ free. It is a great way to get children interested and accustomed to cleaning around the house – a good habit to start young!
It is quick and easy – and you don’t even need to make a physical to-clean list. Just think of all the touch points in your home or office space!
“I should clean the pen holder today because I know Todd borrowed a pen this morning and he sounded like he was catching a cold.”
“Susie was talking on the phone earlier and I noticed she was chewing her nails – I’ll make sure I remind her to clean her touch points before dinner time.”
This system is easily adopted into any other cleaning regime and will benefit everyone in the environment.
When following the touch point cleaning method (or any other cleaning around your home or office) it is also important to choose cleaning products that are environmentally friendly. This way you can ensure that you are protecting yourself and others from bacteria, viruses, and the harsh chemicals contained in many household cleaning products. These chemicals can cause irritation to our skin, eyes, and lungs and are often not even listed on the ingredients list. Choose cleaning products that are biodegradable and not tested on animals.
