At Greystone, we have always advised keeping your computer virus-free with security updates and virus scanning software.

But recently, there has been a different kind of virus that has been hitting the headlines. Greystone has always advised clients that a regular deep clean of IT equipment is a must. So, it may be worth knowing that keeping your computer clean and running efficiently, can also mean keeping your business and employees safe.

Professionally disinfecting your IT equipment is important, regardless of any virus threat. Uncleaned workstations and IT devices, especially computer keyboards, can be a big health hazard if they are not professionally disinfected on a regular basis. Computer keyboards alone can harbour 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat.

Depending on your working environment, we advise ensuring your IT equipment has a deep clean every 3- 4 months.

To ensure our customers are safe and their businesses continue running smoothly, we have partnered with TechCleaners. They provide expert prevention assessments and professional disinfection all types of IT devices. Their specialised, lab-tested, computer cleaning products are effective against many infectious viruses.

And cleaning your IT and computers isn’t an upheaval for your business, it is quick and you’ll have minimal disruption. Cleaning a computer keyboard takes as long as an employee takes to make a cup of tea.

So, if your business is interested in ensuring it has clean IT equipment and healthy staff, then please get in touch and we can arrange it for you.
