Do you know how important it is to have your computer cleaned on a regular basis?
Computer cleaning is not just about the visual appearance of your computer accessories as important as that may be. Lets take this opportunity to consider the effect that a dirty computer can have on the health of YOUR staff.
"Should somebody have a cold in your office, or even have gastroenteritis, you're very likely to pick it up from a keyboard. If you look at what grows on computer keyboards, (and hospitals are worse believe it or not), it's more or less a reflection of what's in your nose and in your gut."
Dr Peter Wilson Consultant Microbiologist – University College London Hospital
Your office computer keyboard and mouse are likely to be the most dangerous things on the average office desk.
Did you know?
Several researchers in both London and the USA tested levels of bacteria on office desks and office toilet seats?
In virtually every case they found it safer to eat your lunch on the toilet seat than your office desk.
Now just ask any of our specialist computer cleaning team members where they would eat their lunch. They have seen so many dirty computer keyboards on the outside and inside.
Think about it! Have you ever seen any crumbs drop onto your keyboard as your hand reached up to your mouth? What about drips of coffee (or another drink) that landed on your keyboard? As the smaller crumbs slip down the edge of the keys they become bacterial breeding grounds.
How many times have you ever coughed ( or sneezed) near your computer keyb0ard? Where did those germs go? Many of them landed on the keys that your fingers are resting on now. However they did not just land there they started to multiply.
Is another member of staff about to pick up your germs tomorrow? Then ask yourself whose germs you are picking up as your fingers fly across that computer keyboard in front of you.
I am NOT exaggerating. You will have heard of The Consumer Association (publishers of WHICH? magazine). A couple of years ago a microbiologist found one of their computer keyboards 150 times the recommended limit for bacteria. Consequently, he ordered that it be bagged up, immediately removed to a quarantine area and thoroughly cleaned.
By the way it had five times the bacteria found on one the same office toilet seat.
