In the typical office, electronic devices such as computers, telephones and I-pads are changing the way we do business. Electronic devices however need cleaning to not only improve their functionality, but to keep your employees healthy. Dust builds up quickly in offices and can cause computers and other electronic devices to become slow and even overheat. Germs love to gather on objects and devices we use with our hands so it is important to disinfect them regularly. Here are several cleaning solutions to use for your electronic devices.
I-Pad: When cleaning your I-Pad screen make sure to use a fine clean cloth and water. Don’t use any chemicals because the screen contains a special coating to repel oils from your fingers which can be worn out by chemicals.
Keyboard: A fast keyboard is a clean keyboard. To clean your computers keyboard start by holding it upside down and shaking out any loose particles. Next, use a can of compressed air to remove any remaining loose particle or dust. Lastly, to disinfect the keyboard, spray a surface cleaner onto a paper towel or rag and wipe the keyboard. Never spray the keyboard directly with cleaning solution.
Computer: Over time dust builds up around and inside the computer that is underneath your desk. It is important to keep your computer in a dust free environment. Dust can cause overheating, slower performance and can decrease the longevity of the computer. We recommend using a can of compressed air and a microfiber cloth to remove dust around your computer. You should also make sure the area around your computer is cleaned regularly.
Telephone: When we use a telephone we dial numbers with our fingers and hold the phone next to our mouths which makes them a hot spot for bacteria. To disinfect a telephone either use disinfecting wipes or spray a surface cleaner on a rag or paper towel and then wipe the phone.
