Spend to Save – Extend the Life of IT Through Regular CleaningPosted on: October 1st 2023 • Posted in: General News
When times are hard it’s natural to look at ways to save money – but sometimes actually increasing your leaning budget could deliver tangible savings further down the line.
We’re not talking about giving your office cleaner extra hours – we’re talking about calling in the Techclean experts to give your servers and all your office desktop IT a deep hygienic clean. Keeping IT clean prolongs its life, enhances performance and negates the need to throw out keyboards and mice when they get grubby.
Here at Techclean we specialise in extending the life of every item of IT from the humble mouse all the way through to server and data rooms. With almost 40 years of technical cleaning expertise, we know exactly how to remove harmful dust, debris and bacteria from your equipment, ensuring that your most valuable business assets – people and IT – stay healthy.
Keyboards and mice should be able to last for at least 10 years with an annual Techclean deep clean restoring them to good as new. Are you in financial services? Why throw away an expensive Blomberg keyboard when you don’t have to? After successfully cleaning a ‘trial’ keyboard, one of our Techclean specialists went on to clean a further 20 at a city stockbroking firm, saving them over £20,000 in replacement costs.
The costs to the business due to a server malfunction could be huge both in replacement cost and downtime. Dust and dirt are major contributors to IT failure so when every penny counts it is even more important to keep the beating heart of your IT forensically clean. Techclean provides audited cleaning services for dust and particle decontamination (measured to ISO 14644 gradings) and deep clean solutions to servers, cabinets, racks, cabling, floors & ceilings and all our processes comply to our ISO 9001 certification.
According to the latest Office for National Statistics data, an estimated 149 million working days were lost in the UK last year due to sick absence. A significant proportion of days lost were due to illness transmitted through human contact such as covid and tummy bugs.
With more people choosing to give up homeworking to return to an office environment, it’s never been more important to make sure all of your desktop IT is hygienically clean to help keep your people at work and not off sick. Scientists have proved that the average keyboard harbours ten times more bacteria than a toilet seat! Failing to clean desktop IT equipment regularly and thoroughly can encourage dangerous bugs to breed, such as Helicobacter pylori, Staphylococcus aureus, E-coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
