Wiping Germs Out of Our Lives: How to Properly Clean Your Electronics

As the weather outside becomes increasingly pleasant, being out and about is a top priority. Wherever we go, however, germs are sure to follow us home either on our skin or directly onto our electronics. To avoid getting sick from these pesky germs, the sanitizing specialists at Berk International are eager to share with you how to clean electronics efficiently to combat unwanted bacteria and germs.

 

Battling Phone Bacteria

Did you know that your cellphone’s surface has roughly 25,127 particles of bacteria per square inch? Think about all the places you take and use your cellphone that germs can easily latch onto! Before you begin to panic, here’s how to remove the bacteria on your phone. Use a damp microfiber cloth and thoroughly wipe your phone’s screen. Using q-tips can help for those hard to reach crevices on your phone like in between the home button or headphone jack. If you have a screen protector, remove if possible to wipe down. By doing this, you’ll be able to remove any bacteria on your phone without causing harm to your device.

 

Erasing Germs from Earbuds

If you’re a big fan of listening to music or working with headphones in, sanitizing these electronics regularly is important for both the quality of your listening experience and your health. From sweat to earwax, your headphones are exposed to a variety of germs that can easily be removed with proper care. If your earbuds have removable tips, clean them out with soap and warm water, rinsing thoroughly before returning back onto your headphones. Dampen a microfiber cloth and wipe down your headphone’s entire surface from the cord to the tips of your headphones. Just like that, your earbuds are ready to use and are cleaner than ever!

 

Cleaning Treatment for Televisions

Whether your tv is big or small, the surface is sure to accumulate a great deal of dust and other airborne particles that can decrease the clarity of the image. By sanitizing your electronics, you will not only make your home a cleaner environment but will protect your devices from unwanted particles. It’s important to note that using a glass cleaner on your television can cause severe damage to the screen. Instead, use a damp microfiber cloth to wipe down the entire surface and base of the television. The best part is, this takes nearly no time to complete!

Don’t let the fear of germs and bacteria keep you from enjoying your electronics fully! Be sure to follow our tips on how to clean your electronics to maximize the most of your device experience. Feel free to contact us for all your other sanitizing needs or questions.
