Banish Desk Gremlins!Posted on: May 1st 2019 • Posted in: General News
If the germs that live in, on and around your workstation were visible on your clothes, you would take them home and boil wash them. Twice.
Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, influenza, norovirus are just some of the nasty gremlins that love to lurk in and on our keyboards, handsets and headsets. And believe it or not, they are there in greater numbers on our desk than they are on the average office toilet seat!
General office cleaners will give the keyboard and phone handset a cursory wipe, but their tools and detergents are not suited to the task of cleaning desktop IT – indeed they can cause serious damage to tech. So, while the office might look clean when they have done the rounds, the germs still lurk unseen.
Detection, prevention and risk mitigation is all part and parcel of good facilities management practice. Employing a specialist desktop IT cleaning specialist can reap multiple benefits, including reducing staff sickness and making IT perform better and last longer by maintaining hygiene standards in the workplace. From a health and safety point of view, it really is a no-brainer.
