Our friends at Seal Shield™, the world leader in the innovation, development, and manufacturing of medical-grade equipment (especially designed to fight infection), have offered to tell our readers more about how their products can help with COVID-secure hygiene strategies.
Reopening worksites over the coming months will require extra precautions to prevent the spread of illness. On a daily basis, you'll need to clean and disinfect all surfaces and high-touch items used by lots of people, including:
- coffee machines
- light switches
- keyboards and mice.
Is there a risk to technology when you're disinfecting it so often?
Surfaces such as tables, chairs, and railings are relatively simple to disinfect with a germicidal wipe or spray. However, adequate disinfection of high-touch technologies such as keyboards, mice, and touch screen devices can damage expensive equipment.
Standard keyboards and mice
A study performed by University of Arizona researchers found that the average desktop has 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. However, daily and effective disinfection of keyboards could reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Unfortunately, standard keyboards and mice are not waterproof or compatible with medical-grade disinfectants. This makes it exceptionally difficult to eliminate nosocomial pathogens and bacteria on the surface and in hard-to-reach crevices.
Opting for medical-grade alternatives
Seal Shield™ washable, waterproof keyboards are purposefully designed to mitigate cross-contamination risk with regular and vigorous disinfection capabilities. Seal Shield™ keyboards are washable, dishwasher safe, and compatible with medical-grade disinfectants. They're available in a few different styles and sizes, making them the perfect fit for any workspace or tighter applications.
