New Year – 2021Posted on: January 1st 2021 • Posted in: General News
The New Year is a great excuse for a fresh start and whilst some choose to overhaul their diet, now could be the time to invest in a different kind of bootcamp – one for your workstation!
As the UK’s leading expert in specialist desktop IT cleaning, Techclean has been carrying out our services since 1983. So, you can rest assured we know what we are doing! If Covid-19 didn’t give you the incentive to have your desktop IT regularly cleaned, then maybe 2021 might. We’re still on the long road to recovery and ensuring good workplace hygiene can help us get there.
Studies have uncovered a life of grime below your fingertips. With only 1 in 10 of the office population bothering to clean their desks and equipment (sufficiently), bacteria are having a free run. The key offenders are telephones, which harbour up to 25,127 microbes per square inch, keyboards 3,295 and computer mice 1,676. By contrast, the average toilet seat contains 49 microbes per square inch…
Regular cleaning not only makes desktop IT equipment more hygienic, but it is also a form of preventative maintenance. Removing grease, dust and contaminants from equipment will increase reliability, result in fewer service calls and improve productivity. Due to its delicate and expensive nature, cleaning and sanitising electronic office equipment is a job for a specialist.
Over the years, Techclean has developed our own safe, detergent products and procedures, including our latest innovation, the Byoclean Antibac. Guaranteed to kill 99.99% of all bacteria, including enveloped viruses such as coronavirus, it’s non-toxic and alcohol free, making it safe to use across a wide range of environments. It’s little gems like this that your regular office cleaners won’t be privy to!
Sanitising office equipment, especially multi-user workstations, decreases the spread of bacteria within your company and reduces employee sick leave. Staff morale and company image are enhanced in a cleaner, healthier, more productive work environment. Equipment lasts longer and functions more reliably when dust and dirt build-up are removed.
After the people in your business, your electronic systems are the next most important asset. Regular cleaning will help safeguard your staff and equipment and is therefore worth investing in.
We know it can be hard to get motivated in the New Year, especially when you’re back from a break and getting back to the daily routine, but employing a desktop IT cleaning specialist could turn out to be your best New Year’s resolution.
