Cleaning and janitorial staff are the unsung heroes of the office world (and of every other building too), moving in when the other workers are gone to wipe over the desks and empty out the bins.
We assume they do a pretty thorough job, but we don’t know what cleaning products are actually used to clean the surfaces we touch every day. Most of us know very little about the chemicals present in cleaning products, such as in general purpose cleaners, sanitary cleaners for the bathroom, laundry cleaning agents and dishwashing detergents. We trust that they will do the job they’re supposed to do and leave us with a fresher, cleaner and healthier living environment free from dirt and pathogens.
