Everyone is aware of the fact that the air surrounding us, is full of microbes. You might be living around with bacteria and germs more than you think. These organisms can thrive well in areas that are not cleaned.
Our habits are mainly responsible for the growth and spread of these microorganisms. Not maintaining cleanliness at home or workplace and poor personal hygiene give plenty of opportunity for the germs to cultivate. Negligence makes it even more worse.
These microbes remain invisible, but can cause mild to serious illnesses. This infographic depicts how dirty the surroundings we live in can get. In a household, the areas where the bacterial activity is high include faucet handles in washroom, microwave door handles, computer keyboards, refrigerator handles and water fountain buttons.
Your workplace tends to be even more dirtier. The areas that are known to be the breeding grounds for bacteria at work include computer mice, keyboards, office desks, light switches and hand switches.
Most of the infections are known to spread through hand contact. Food borne illnesses cause a number of health problems and even death in some cases.
