What are the dirtiest spots in an office building? If restrooms are the only ones that come to mind, think again. A study conducted by Kimberly-Clark Professional revealed that bathrooms are not the only germ havens in commercial buildings, so if you’re out looking for essential cleaning supplies in Buffalo, NY, don’t forget to purchase supplies for all the spaces of your building, not just the restrooms.
In an article for TIME, health reporter Alexandra Sifferlin expounded on the 2012 research of Kimberly-Clark Professional, in which about 5,000 workplace surfaces were swabbed and tested for germs. Office buildings accommodating around 3,000 employees from different industries, including health care companies, law firms, manufacturing facilities and several others, were included in the study.
