Make It A Jolly Holiday With TechcleanPosted on: December 1st 2021 • Posted in: General News
Have you made your list and checked it twice yet? That is the ‘what you need to do before you close the office for Christmas list’, of course.
If you haven’t done so already, then booking the office in for a deep clean should be a high priority. We don’t mean asking your regular cleaners to come in and erase all evidence of the office Christmas party. More importantly, you should be calling the experts in to banish the germs from the desktop IT equipment!
The average desk is covered in around 10 million bacteria, that’s 400 times more germs than a toilet seat. What’s more, the average computer mouse harbours at least 1,676 germs per square inch at minimum, whilst a common bacterium known for causing stomach upsets called Staphylococcus aureus is found on keyboards. Ultimately, the health of staff is directly and positively affected if they work on cleaner, healthier workstations.
This all coupled with the fact that some bacteria can linger for weeks explains how minor illnesses at work accounted for over a quarter of all occurrences of sickness absence in 2020. That’s 118.6 million working days, equating to 3.6 days lost per worker…
It’s not just the health of your staff that can suffer from poorly cleaned desktop IT equipment, but the equipment itself! If left neglected, computers will literally burn out due to the amount of dirt trapped inside. Clean desktop IT means less breakage & downtime and reduces disposability.
