How to use and disinfect your phone safely in high-traffic areas after a pandemic (these areas include: theme parks, public transportation, office buildings, etc.). You don’t have to copy the title word for word, just share an address.
Mobile phones have become an extension of our hands and arms. We use them multiple times a day to make phone calls, check emails, find places, and play games. If they are not in our hands, they are close. During lunch or dinner they are placed next to our plate. When we have a cup of coffee, we leave it on the counter while we pay.
During the Covid crisis, we have become incredibly aware of washing our hands frequently and using hand sanitizers. We disinfect desks and countertops. However, how often do you clean that cell phone that has been next to us?
In January 2020, ZD Net conducted a survey and found that 60% of people never cleaned their mobile devices. Less than 10% would probably clean it up after being sick. They repeated the survey in August of that year and now 40% said they did clean their phones.
The question arises of how often should I clean my phone and what is the best way to do it.
Dr. David Westenberg, associate professor of biological sciences at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, reminds us that there are a number of microbes that can be harmful in addition to the Coronavirus, such as bacteria and fungi.
Under normal circumstances, you should disinfect your phone, especially the touch screen, and its case at least once a day. If you have allowed someone else to handle or use the phone, you should fix it as soon as possible.
Before using any item or cleaning technique, check with the manufacturer to see what they say.
Some recommendations include:
• Soft, lint-free cloth
• Avoid the use of liquids
• Avoid spraying directly on the device
• Do not use bleaches or abrasives
Another option is to use ultraviolet lighting. Glissner makes a wonderful product called The CleanPhone ™. It is the perfect addition to your home or office. Simply place your phone through the top cover and just 20 seconds later, the phone will come out completely disinfected. Use 4 UV-C bulbs to complete the process.
This is a product designed to provide maximum cleaning with minimal effort. Since it does not use chemicals or liquids, it is safe to use. It can handle most phones including the iPhone 11 with its case, the Samsung S20 with its case, and older Samsung and Pixel mobile phones.
Laboratory tested, the cleaning device will remove 99.99% of all viruses and bacteria within the 20 second processing period.
Now, no matter where you’ve been, you can be sure that your phone can be disinfected quickly and safely.
