Commercial buildings

In commercial buildings, germs can be spread through airborne means, direct contact (hands) and contaminated surfaces.

Surfaces that can become easily contaminated include couches, chairs, elevator buttons, courtesy phones, security desk equipment, doorknobs, desks, computers, kitchen areas, waiting areas, toilets, vending machines, etc.

Many commercial buildings also suffer from dry environments that are perfect for airborne viral transmission and contagion.

Additionally, poor air filters, inadequate ventilation, and inadequate sanitising measures and cleaning protocols heighten the risks.
