When was the last time you gave your computer a good clean? Take a look at your keyboard now, do those keys look clean to you. Imagine all the people who have typed on your keyboard, all the people who have typed on the keyboards in the office and then think to yourself, has this keyboard ever been cleaned? Goodness only knows how many germs those keyboards are riddled with; cold, flu, conjunctivitis, tonsillitis, stomach upsets, you name it you can be sure that those keyboards have come into direct contact with many awful bugs and viruses.
Office hygiene is quite a responsibility and one that will affect the overall operations of the company. Why is it we take the time to dust, to vacuum and to clean the bathroom facilities, however we forget the things we touch the most; keyboards, telephones, desks and so on.
Did you know that up to 70% of computer related problems are as a result of dust, dirt and other airborne particles? Computers are in fact a magnet to dirt and dust as the static electricity attracts it, we see evidence of this with the yellowing of surfaces, plus the extreme dust build up in computer areas when compared to other areas of the home and office. Now if we can see the external evidence of dust and dirt, then what is this doing to the inside of the machine and its components?
Keyboards become sticky and in-efficient from the build up of dust and particles, screens become dirty and cause our eyes to strain in order to see through the grime, mice become unresponsive and behave erratically, whilst other computer functions may appear faulty however just need a good clean. Don’t let your computer struggle and overheat, maybe it’s time to treat it to a nice clean!
It is recommended that you clean your computer and its components every five months as well as standard dusting in order to keep it looking clean. However if you are a business then it is recommend that you clean your computers every 2-3 months. This is where we can help. Here at Office 365 we have a wide variety of computer cleaning products including our very popular screen cleaner and keyboard cleaner.
