I don't know how many times my Mom and Grand-mother said that to me, OR how many times I have said it to my own kids. Funny how those things come out of your mouth....
Think of all the contaminated surfaces you touch in a day - door handles, elevator buttons, and your cell phone.
Do you take your cell phone to the gym to listen to music or talk on the phone? How many hands have touched that equipment before you?
Checking out your e-mails while you eat. How many have touched that table, chair, or salt shaker before you?
Anybody else ever borrow your phone? Do you take your cell phone with you to use the rest room? You never know when that important call will come in! Kids like to play games on your phone, who knows how many germs and bacteria their hands have picked up? I heard on the news this morning that the cases of Strep throat have been increasing since kids have returned to school.
Here are a few ways to clean your cell phone, but be sure to check with your phone manufacturers manual for a safe method to keep you phone clean. Alcohol or electronic specific wipes can be helpful cleaners. Don't use anti-bacterial, soap or household cleaners, they can cause damage. A dry microfiber cloth can help remove some of the dirt and germs that your phone may come into contact with.
Last but not least, KEEP YOUR HANDS CLEAN!
Workplace phones are a little different, for one you can't carry them too far. Even cordless phones have their limits. Some of the companies we work for have us wipe down the phones in the receptionist area nightly, while some want all their desk phones cleaned quarterly. Some even leave it up to their employees to clean themselves. With cold and flu season fast approaching, you might want to give your phone a head start in the clean department.
If you are looking for a cleaning company who will offer that little extra "touch".
Give us a call.
