through better hygiene

Blog, Cleaning Services No Comments

Recent research shows that poor hygiene is forcing pupils in schools and those who teach them to take time off.

It has been suggested that if hygiene practices were more stringent, the spread of the top five illnesses / infections which keep children off school could be vastly reduced.

At The Cleaning Company we are passionate about raising awareness about the extreme importance of PC cleaning – and particularly in a school environment

There is a huge amount of other published research has shown that viruses and bacteria, which result in illnesses, often reside in IT equipment.

Dr Peter Wilson, Consultant Microbiologist (UniversityCollege, LondonHospital): Should somebody have a cold in your office… you’re very likely to pick it up from a keyboard

Dr Charles Gerba, Microbiologist (Universityof Arizona): Without cleaning, a small area on your desk or phone can sustain millions of bacteria that could potentially cause illness

Effective cleaning will reduce spreading of bacteria and germs which is a key factor in pupil and staff sickness.

We understand the huge responsibility of working within schools, and are committed to providing a professional, effective PC and telephone sanitisation service which will enhance any educational environment.
